Could I be seeing auras?

- Advertisement -

Not too long ago, I started seeing a whiteish glow about myself. I found it fascinating, so I tried to do it some more, and more, and now I can see the colors purple and blue instead of white. I tried it on other people, and I see the same thing. Am I seeing auras?
Roks: Yes.

Before you jump to conclusions, are you sure its not a vision problem?


Have you been swimming?


Well, that is one explanation. But there is a far more likely explanation.
Retinal fatigue is a very interesting phenomenon. Basically, what you’re doing is saturating the color receptors in your eye and what happens is your vision starts giving you false colors. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that most aura enthusiasts advocate a method which depends on staring for an extended period of time. This is precisely what produces retinal fatigue illusions.
Examples of retinal fatigue illusions are linked below.


TR beat me to the correct answer. The reason you see blue is that when put on a white background it is the opposite color of fleshtones, which is what happens when you have retinal fatigue. Its a little more complicated than opposite colors, but on a white background, you see opposite colors.
This is exactly the reason that film makers do special effects on a blue screen. They can block out the blue easily without losing fleshtones. The same technique applied to yellow or red would make people look transparent, because from a color perspective, fleshtones are mixtures of yellows and reds. The opposites of which are greens and blues.
So when you stare at something red for awhile, the cones which interpet red get tired. Because of this, you temporarily only see the blues and greens giving the illusion that the object you are staring at is surrounded by a blue/green glowing aura.
If you don’t believe me, try seeing the aura of inanimate objects. You will see it creates the same effect, which is demonstrated in the links which TR has provided.


Science… It is so unappealing. I think you may be seeing auras, you should talk to a psychic at some stage. Ignore the eye people lol.


I know everyone has different takes on auras
I do see auras and from your description, it sounds as if you are seeing auras, especially if the white is always the first layer of color, no matter how thin, I personally believe it is our souls and the energy they generate, the colors are ever changing and reflect mood.


“Studies of the Human Aura,” Kuthumi, is helpful.

I can see auras, too! You go, girl! BTW, my aura is a light turquoise 😉
Here are the meanings of the colors:
Meaning of Clean Colors of the Aura
(colors of the rainbow, bright, shiny, monochromatic colors):
Purple: indicates spiritual thoughts. Purple is never a strong point in the Aura. It appears only as temporary “clouds” and “flames”, indicating truly spiritual thoughts.
Blue: Balanced existence, sustaining life, eased nerve system, transmitting forces and energy. People with blue strong point in their Aura are relaxed, balanced and feel ready to live in a cave and survive. They are born survivors. Blue thought is a thought about relaxing the nerve system to achieve the balance of the mind or a thought about surviving. Electric blue can override any other color in the Aura, when the person is receiving and/or transmitting information in a telepathic communication. For example Michel Desmarquet, author of “Thiaoouba Prophecy”, frequently glows with the electric blue during his lectures, especially when he answers questions from the public.
Turquoise: indicates dynamic quality of being, highly energized personality, capable of projection, influencing other people. People with turquoise strong point in their Aura can do many things simultaneously and are good organizers. They feel bored when forced to concentrate on one thing. People love bosses with turquoise Auras, because such bosses explain their goals and influence their team rather than demand executing their commands. Turquoise thought is a thought about organizing and influencing others.
Green: restful, modifying energy, natural healing ability. All natural healers should have it. People with a green strong point in their Auras are natural healers. The stronger the green Aura, the better the healer. They also love gardening and usually have a “green hand” – anything grows for them. Being in a presence of a person with a strong and green Aura is a very peaceful and restful experience. Green thought indicates a restful state and healing.
Yellow: joy, freedom, non-attachment, freeing or releasing vital forces. People who glow yellow are full of inner joy, very generous and not attached to anything. Yellow halo around the head: high spiritual development. A signature of a spiritual teacher. Do not accept spiritual teachings from anyone who does not have such a yellow halo. Buddha and Christ had yellow halos extending to their arms. Today it is rare on Earth to find a person with a halo larger than 1 inch. Yellow halo appears as a result of a highly active brow chakra (which can be seen glowing with violet by many people at my workshops). Highly spiritual people stimulate the brow chakra continuously for many years, because they always have intensive spiritual thoughts in their minds. When this chakra is observed when highly active, a yellow (Auric pair) halo appears around it, surrounding the entire head. Yellow thought indicates a moment of joy and contentment.
Orange: uplifting and absorbing. Inspiring. A sign of power. Ability and/or desire to control people. When orange becomes a strong point, it usually contributes to a yellow halo, which then becomes gold, indicating not only a spiritual teacher, but a powerful spiritual teacher, someone capable of demonstrating his/her unique abilities. Orange thought is a thought about exercising power or a desire to control people.
Red: materialistic thoughts, thoughts about the physical body. Predominantly red Aura indicates materialistically oriented person.
Pink (=purple+red): love (in a spiritual sense). To obtain a clean pink, you need to mix the purple (the highest frequency we perceive) with red (the lowest frequency). Pink Aura indicates that the person achieved a perfect balance between spiritual awareness and the material existence. The most advanced people have not only a yellow halo around the head (a permanent strong point in the Aura) but also a large pink Aura extending further away. The pink color in the Aura is quite rare on Earth and appears only as a temporary thought, never as a strong point in the Aura.
Meaning of Dirty colors:
(colors appearing darker than background more like a smoke than a glow)
Brown: unsettling, distracting, materialistic, negating spirituality.
Gray: dark thoughts, depressing thoughts, unclear intentions, presence of a dark side of personality.
Sulfur (color of a mustard): pain or lack of ease, anger
White: serious disease, artificial stimulation (drugs). Why does the white color in the Aura indicate problems? White color is like a noise, rather than a set of harmonious tones (monochromatic colors). It is impossible to “tune” the noise to an orchestra playing harmonious music, hence the white Aura indicates a lack of harmony in the body and mind. Nature, which we are a part of, is harmonious. This harmony comes in discrete vibration “tones” or harmonics, partially described by the modern quantum physics.

i cannot see auras but i can project mine it is always either red or blue trying to project any other color has just not been really thought about for me i dont know if this is a way to tell my aura but i wish someone in my area could tell me
an awesome site that could help you is
its an online community that just formed and is still in the beginning stages but the are people who could help you develop your abilities 🙂


Yes you are seeing auras.


If you see different colors on different people, then yes you probably are actually seeing auras. Seeing auras is somewhat a bit easy. Keep on developing it and you might become a very good aura-sightist. But if you keep seeing the same pattern and colors for everyone, that’s probably because you may not be that developed in power yet, so keep up the good work!
