    Wish I could see auras, I am clairtransient. I have tried a few recommended techniques to see auras and had no success, any tips?

    • Deborah Sue Emmons March 12, 2013, 1:23 am

      Start by looking at really big trees…you will see the white glow around them…calm down your mind by taking deep breaths and then look to the right or left of what you are trying to see the aura around. Trees are great! They have lots of energy….the main thing is the mind has to be in almost REM state…very calm 🙂 Hope this helps.

      Put your hand on white paper. Look at the paper just at the edge of your hand with a soft eye. Stare until you begin to see the aura form.

      • Finally Florida August 15, 2016, 5:37 pm

        I see it!! mine is a little light bluish!! COOL! Thank you. I’m going to go try some trees now.

    • Dude January 10, 2015, 12:21 am

      Eat mushrooms. You will see all kinds of colors!!

  • randi linehan March 9, 2013, 1:56 pm

    when you see colors during a reiki session do you think it’s the aura your seeing?

    • Deborah Sue Emmons March 12, 2013, 1:27 am

      Possible…I agree with the other post…enjoy 🙂 I find if I go to the “left brain” during a session I miss the connection of Reiki which is all healing and always pure.

  • Reiki Rays March 9, 2013, 2:39 pm

    Sarah: sorry, no tips on this. What I understand is that it is possible, and there are some free and some paid methods available that will teach you, but all require some persistence on the student’s part, so it takes (a lot of?) practice.

    Randi: Could very well be, but I think nobody can tell for sure. I’d say, just enjoy them :), and in time perhaps you can start noticing patterns and figuring out what it could mean.

  • Maria Franco September 4, 2013, 2:53 am

    Thank you so much for the information! I’ve noticed people let their auras been seen when the are focused on something and when they explain something with a lot of passion.
    For me, it was a mystery to know about the real meaning of the different colors I get used to see.
    Now, not anymore.
    Namaste! 🙂

  • julie March 17, 2014, 12:45 pm

    Ive had my aura pic taken(head and shoulders) and there were four auric crosses (formed a ‘hashtag’ symbol) but the reader couldnt tell me what it meant – any idea?

  • John September 13, 2014, 12:21 pm

    It was such an interesting article!!^^

  • Reinaldo October 14, 2014, 8:40 am


    Thanks for the article.
    Is it possible to have a mix of colors in the aura? How do you know which color is the “core”?
    I did a month ago a thing call the aura video station and I’m a bit confused. It showed me three colors and I don’t know how to “analyze” that?

  • juanita November 14, 2014, 2:18 pm

    I love trees i stare into them everyday. I feel heart chakras mainly i cant exlain it i have felt them ever since i was alittle kid. I always see flashes only recently i was walking and i seen pink im guessing tht was my chakra?? And angel feathers always appear in thin air out of no where im only 25 and finding out what all this means….

  • Hazael May 30, 2015, 8:27 pm

    Ok… Lets start by clearing up one thing about angels… They are energy entities, no need of wings or feathers! They are represented in paintings and drawings with wings like birds, but thats only our ways of representing that they fly, float or in other words, arent affected by gravity.

    • Angelica July 13, 2015, 6:26 am

      While I agree that angels are energetic beings, Hazael, that doesn’t mean that they won’t try to communicate in a way that humans understand. Angels don’t need wings and feathers to fly, however, they know that we, humans, have depicted them in our art as having them for millenia. Juanita’s experience with white feathers has been shared by many others across the world. I suggest that angels are reaching out to them in a medium they understand and can automatically relate to.

    i m Reiki practitioner I want to see aura of my patients pls advise how i can see their aura…


  • Julia Trickett March 23, 2016, 1:06 pm

    I learnt to see auras from meditating in the garden. As a Reiki Master I teach Reiki. But due to the interest from students started teaching how to see auras

    It is important to use the colours and their associated meanings in this article as a guidance as everyone may see differently. Its rather like chakras.

    You are ultimately looking, as a healer, for tinges or muddy colours for a block or negative aspect.

    Auras change constanty, they are not constant.Even antidepressants affect them.

    Ninja Masters and psychics may train to see auras to help them in their roles. It is a skill that can be taught.

    Kind regards

    During my session I have experienced a pulling like effect with some discomfort and seen the color black solid and in a specific shape, elongated. Its happened three times and its always in the same location lowel right abdomen. Do colors have shapes? I also see colors during my sessions in rays or solids other times in a flowing ways like the water in a creek.

    • Leanne Waller March 21, 2018, 3:34 am

      You should seek reiki treatment, counsel with a reiki master, who is experienced and can advise u

  • Heather October 11, 2016, 5:21 pm

    I activated reiki and dangled my lapis lazuli pendant over my hand and while I was doing this after some time I began to see an orangish gold glow around the pendant what does this mean?

  • Theresa Deuschle December 11, 2018, 8:30 pm

    I am an aura reader and use this information for my readings, it is quite accurate.

    I wish there was a way for me to him up with Reiki Rays to offer readings and a booklet on how to see auras, I think we would sell many!

  • Louise July 16, 2019, 7:36 pm

    Today I had an attunement with my Reiki master. She is a blessed Angel sent from above. Close to the end of the session she saw a beautiful aura of blue around my head and said I was in a peaceful state. Going to many sessions almost a year in a half I’ve seen black auras gold and red. My Reiki master has a very soothing voice. You can be very drawn to her spirit. I don’t feel the energy as she does but sense warmth, sometimes tears, cooling of the hands. I have learned a lot from her. Advice, nutrition, vitamins, exercise. We are both writers and have a sharing journal together. I have vein issues heredity of course. She is very encouraging. I feel she has definitely helped me a lot in this area. If you find the peace with someone that can get you through health issues and make you feel good about yourself go for it.
