Hello fellow witches! I was training myself on trying to see my own aura this morning. So I decided to start with my hand. I could see a faint transparent outline of my hand and then I accidentally blinked. However, when I opened my eyes, I could see a like a teal color in the shape of my hand. Was that my aura that I've seen or was that something else? Also could you please provide any tips on how to get better at this technique? Thank you.
To practice seeing yours more, I suggest using a blank, white piece of paper. Hang it up and then put your hand infront of it. Look past your hand, and focus on the paper, whilst seeing your hand in your periphreal vision. You will start to see a transparents outline of your hand, as you did. But if you blinked, I doubt it was your aura, because once you close your eyes, you break all concentration. Try it again, but do not blink. If you do, just try again.
You can also replace your hand with objects or get a friend to put their hand against the paper to see if you can see their aura. You can strengthen your aura through meditation and cleanse it in many ways, like taking a hot shower and visualizing the negative energy washing away and out of your body.
It could have been a neurogenic transmission within your brain, especially if you closed your eyes for too long before you saw it. But I wouldn't recommend your hand because it carries the least information about you and is really a component of transferring energy, and energy isn't the same thing as an aura.
Try training in a mirror and use incense.
Also, you may consider to sense auras with other sense, not just using vision. Certain colors will trigger certain emotions and effects within you. This can be use by vigorous meditation.
Actually, many articles on here and videos that I have watched, suggest using your hand since it contains your energy as well. You could use your foot if your wanted too, as long as it is apart of you.
