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

  2. 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.

  3. Hello!
    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! 🙂

  4. 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?

  5. Hello,

    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?

  6. 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….

  7. 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.

    • 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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?
