sit in a dim room and relax. look slightly besides and behind the person/object whos aura you want to see. be patient and if nothing happens dont give up try another time. i found it best to be in a daydreaming like state with a nuetral colour as a background try it on yourself tonight. leave a dim light on when you go to bed, relax and look for your aura. i was told to bring my finger tips together and apart till i feel my bodys natural magnetisim and look for aura on my hands to start with. hope ths helps
sorry only answered half your question. an aura is an electromagmetic radiation and everything has one. people and animals auras can change but objects dont. an aura can tell you alot about a person. a light, clean aura shows good intent, and usually means the person is good, and vise versa with a dark murky one. different colours refer to different physical and emotional states. theres alot of good info on the web for you to research. let me know if youve any questions. i'll help if i can.
An aura is an electromagnetic field around every being.,it tells you the present emotional/mental state that being is.

Merlin and Ellyn have posted great information, and I have no more to add to what they've already said. I would, however, like to note one criticism: auras are most likely not electromagnetic.
The electric field created by the human body is very weak, weaker than the electromagnetic fields around power outlets, televisions, or cell phones; these objects should have auras too, if electromagnetism is the cause. Moreover, instruments such as PET scanners can detect electromagnetic fields many thousands of times weaker than human tissue can detect, but they see no auras around humans.
Another problem is color; differences in the color of electromagnetic energy are caused by differences in the wavelength. Having a blue aura would thus only mean that one produces a high-frequency/short-wavelength electric field - not anything about personality or the like.
For these reasons, I believe auras are not electromagnetic in nature.
