Well, the way that I know how to train your eyes to see auras, is that you look past a person's body, with your peripheral vision. It is there, but I don't think our eyes are accustomed to see auras. There are actually special glasses that you can purchase, somewhere, and their specialty is specifically for training the eyes to see auras. You practice the old fashion way, but it takes time, like any other talent. The truth is with talents, once you develop them, no matter how slight, it seems you have them for a while. Well, as far as talents go, I think you have them for life. The more you practice, the more strong those talents become. I know this because I was practicing listening with my ears, with an azurite stone, a couple of times, then labradorite seems to amplify anything, but with enough experimentation I got some things down, with clairaudience. Now, every so often, I can hear people's thoughts, or what they have said at a distance. I don't know exactly how clairaudience comes in handy, but you can imagine.
I think if you just put it into mind and practice, looking with your peripheral vision, you should naturally develop your eyes. I think people do see things in different ways, possibly. The one thing I can relate to auras with, is getting in tuned with orbs. It takes a while to get on the same "wave length" as orbs, but you can get there. Then again, it is a matter of believing and knowing that you can do it, because that is the attention I will give the whole orb seeing idea.
Well, the whole orb seeing idea came to me, after I meditated for quite some time, saying my own matras as a way to create energy for my third eye, then the ability to see orbs came to me. What I did was basically mantranized one of my deity's names, with that I was wanting, in mind, to see spirits. The same amount of time it took me to get into that mindset and put enough focus on these "spirits," is about the same amount of time it takes me to get into the vibe to seeing orbs, at any given time. It takes about 45 minutes to an hour to get the energies right. Or, it can take how ever long it takes to get done with a spell, because that is when I get into my own magickal mindset. The only way I can describe it is that where your focus is at, and if there is anything there, then you got it. But you know there is always something there; such as, spirits doing their work. I will, on usual occasion, see orbs buzz around when after I cast a spell. It is weird, more like fascinating, how things correlate.
With that said, you want to see orbs, I think you may have to believe in spirits to really get into that vibe, or mindset. Then the same thing about auras, which I think is very interesting and practical, because the colors that you associate with your meanings, means and mean something to you, personally. You know and believe something is there, but I guess it is if you are willing to seek it out. With that said, and which is why I speculate that people see different colors and different shapes to auras, because although something may definitely be there, magick seems to have a universal way of working with what has meaning to us.
Then it is like, I had this friend who was able to see ghosts in color. She one time saw a ghost in the color of orange, but I only saw it in white. She also sees her orbs in color, while I see the orbs in either black, white or clear color. The funny thing was, is that I see things as either this or that, but with like a meaning in between it. My friend used to describe people's emotions with colors, but I didn't. The only time I associate colors in their meaning, that they mean to me, is with my projections.
I had my aura read to me one time, and the person said I believed in spirits. He associated the color of blue that I had, as a indicator that I had an essence about me that meant I believed in the spirit world. So then I am beginning to think if that is why I can see orbs, when I want to, or after spells, or if that is why I can see shadow-men. What I am really trying to say, it seems as if we bring these beliefs upon ourselves, into mind, that is becomes a part of us, in a way, because you have the auras to indicate it, which in the occult community counts as a reliable observation. There is one last thing I will say about color. To me the rainbow symbolizes magick.
Have you ever projected color onto a person to influence them, in any way? Well, I associate colors with what emotions I can emulate. Chanting helps amplify these projections, and sometimes I don't even have to say the chants aloud, I just have to think of them in my head, and feel the energy surge throughout my body. Then I even got into the whole paradigm shift, of what organs in a person's body symbolizes. So then it is like, if I aim at this organ and put this color into it, which invokes or is related to an emotion or a vibe, then what will it do? Well, the question is more like what can it do (How far)? What the rainbow symbolizes to me, and I hope this doesn't get any "adept" or "knowledgeable" user upset, because I got a feeling that it might, well sorry. . . The rainbow symbolizes magick to me, because of the paradox between light and pigment. The two colors black and white, in light and pigment itself, make their paradigm shift. Interesting, science says colors naturally promote certain emotions in people. Well, why not project those very colors that invoke various emotions within me, unto others? All this, I share, to better understand auras. Only if I had the right words to articulate what it is that I have to share, then what color would there? I think it would be pink actually. I actually do have a pink to my aura, apparently.
Awesome, I know seeing auras can be can be seen that vividly, because of some of the orbs I have seen. I can't see auras, so I don't. I wish I could, but I will tell you this. Ever since I got into the craft, knowingly and willingly, I have been able to pick up on people as fine as a turn on a dime, and it really makes me wonder what some people's aura's look like. "I really wonder," and things are looking up my friends. :)
