About Psychic Abilities and Power
We are all psychic, but to varying degrees. Even psychic skills face logical limitations; some people are just more sensitive, sensitive in different ways, and more talented than others. Everyone can run, but some people run faster, longer, and with more grace than others. With training you can improve and maximize the psychic skills you have, just like improving your speed, endurance, and grace as a runner.
Sometimes psychic gifts remain dormant until a specific trigger moment, like a near death experience, or they are unlocked through concentrated efforts at meditation and mindfulness work. There are also a wide range of talents, from simple intuition to channeling other entities. This section of the AskAstrology website explores and explains different psychic reading skills.
What is Seeing Auras?
Seeing auras is the psychic skill that allows you to see the energy field around the body of a person, animal, plant, or crystal. The halo of energy around a person, living being, or object is the aura. Different colors and color combinations distinguish auras and their meaning. Read more about Auras.
Learning to See Auras
There is a technique to use to determine if you have and can develop the ability to see auras. Take a look at a person or animal at rest. Focus your sight on the center of the person, then relax your focus until you are able to concentrate on the peripheral vision, rather than the center vision. By “looking at the edges” you have the opportunity to see the aural field.
The Aural Field
Sometimes the aural field around a person, animal, plant, or crystal is strong or weak depending on the health and matrix of energy of the entity or object. Most aural fields have a dominant color and a mix of another color or two. The dominant color represents the life energy that needs, wants, and does express itself. If that color is muted, or the color combination is muted instead of “crisp”, then there is likely some issue with the energy of the person.
Each aura color has specific and meanings energy-wise for the entity or object emitting the aura. For people, a dominant color indicates the current life path for the individual.
A rainbow aura is common to healers and psychics. As with all expressions of energy, the colors can sometimes be vibrant and distinct, like a crisp clear delineation from a prism, or more blurred and muted when there is a problem. The sharper and deeper the colors the stronger the healing energy and psychic field. If the colors blend and appear subdued, the energy still represents a healer or psychic, but less powerful than when the energy is distinct and rich.
Yellow, and its many hues, represents the chakra related to the solar plexus and willpower. The brighter the color, the stronger the willpower of the individual. If brown infringes on the edges of the yellow, then the person may be experiencing persistent doubt. Strong yellow aura people make good leaders and work well under pressure.
Orange, and its many hues, represents the chakra related to the sacral energy and pleasure. A bright orange color indicates a healthy and vibrant sex drive, while dullness in this color lets the aura reader know there is some difficulty or struggle around sexual energy and pleasure. Strong orange aura people attract others to them and can be very charismatic.
The color red, and its many hues, represents the chakra related to your root/core and survival. A bright red color indicates self-sufficiency and confidence. You have no doubts and know you can take care of yourself. If the color is weak, then you worry about survival and may struggle with anger. Strong red aura individuals prepare and save well.
A blue aura, and its many hues, represents the chakra related to the throat and truth. A strong blue energy indicates comfort speaking truth and engaging in clear expression of your energy, thoughts, and emotions in your dealings with other and life. A weak blue aura can indicate untruthfulness or the damage caused by continuous lies in your life and around you.
A green aura, and its many hues, represents the heart and love. A strong green energy indicates healing, nurturing, and caring. Weakness in this area can indicate loneliness, difficulty trusting, and feeling rejected. People with bright or dark green auras are excellent healers.
A purple aura, and its many hues, represents the connection to spirit. A strong purple energy indicates spiritual wisdom, creativity, and imagination. If this aura is weak, then the individual is suffering loss, detachment from purpose, and despondency. Individuals with strong purple auras provide spiritual guidance and support to others.
If you wish to see your own aura, rather than have it described to you, then you should have your aura photo taken. Kirlian photography captures the aura by having you place your hands on sensors that will detect the electrical discharge of your body chemistry.
If you have your photograph taken consecutively over several month or yearly, you will see a common color theme indicating your natural energy type. Significant life events (birth of a child or a near death experience), serious mediation, or radical changes in your diet and exercise routine, can alter your aural field.
You can also have your photography done with another person, placing your hand on one sensor and having the other person place their hand on the other sensor while you hold hands. Then you can see the aural field you create together.
Who to Work With?
If you want to work with someone who has this skill, then it is best to seek out practitioners who, when vetted thoroughly, will be able to show you their skill and professionalism.
No matter what service you seek, a mechanic or psychic, it is always a wise policy to look at their business practice, testimonials, and credentials (both ones from an institution and based on their life experience). Talent can appear very early on, but using the talent wisely requires other life skills, and maturity.
If you think or know you have the ability and want to develop it, look for accomplished practitioners who are also willing to teach. High quality people exist in all professions and they all share similar traits in the way they present themselves to the public and develop their success.
