I am starting to do the same thing! An Aura is something everyone can see. Children can see them because they haven’t been filtered through society, adults have to either train themselves or they just never stopped seeing them from childhood. Auras are proven in science, they are our own electro magnetic field and this gives off colors(for all you fools calling this person crazy, just humor me and look it up). The more open you are, the more you will see, unfortunately this world has more closed minded people then open, and alot more people on medication, because hell everything that there not use to is a mental illness! Most of sociaty is sick, I wouldn’t recommend listing to them, you should do your own research, the knowlege is out there, and lastly yes before you go any further, you probably should go see a doctor just in case!
I think you have a gift but in the society we live in most people will tell you you are sick. I wouldn’t call it aura but electro magnetic field, which are, at least as far as I know not an imagination of spiritual people but actually proofed in physics.
When I was younger I would have told those people crazy but since a couple of years, i got much more sensitive and honestly, you wouldn’t believe what’s actually possible (and this is not drug related) but occurred in a stage where I lived in full consciousness.
As our guidelines for ‘sane’ and ‘insane’ partially made by the WHO ( which btw. also invented the GDA (which various according to nationality (compare European standards with American standards) you will find guidelines that are supposed to justify the behavior of our society. As per current economical and global situations I have serious doubts that this is really healthy.
As most doctors act amongst other according to those guidelines I have doubts that they are right.
If you look at medical concepts which are really supposed to help one and not generate the highest turnover and increase the dependency to medication you will find confirmation that you are probably not sick but very sensitive.
At a certain stage you will recognize people on the street who have the ability too. If I may give you one advice be cautious were you mention this topic cos most people have no relation to that skill anymore and will stigmatize you as ‘nuts’.
However, as dani_kin mentioned, a good system of meditation will help you to built up inner strength which will help you to deal with it.
Good luck.. and don’t forget: you’re not alone
One man’s disease is another man’s talent. They are situations (doubtful if you have it) where perception of the senses and interpretation by the brain get twisted around. A few people can smell colors and some others can hear smells, things like that.
An illusion is a distortion of a sensory perception. Each of the human senses can be deceived by illusions, but visual illusions are the most well known. Some illusions are subjective; different people may experience an illusion differently, or not at all.
-Optical illusions, such the use of false perspective, exploit assumptions made by the human visual system.
-Mirages are optical distortions through the atmosphere that may be photographed. While the perceived reality (such as water in the desert) is illusory, the visual image (of a reflective surface) is real.
-Auditory illusions, such as the Shepard Tone, exploit our hearing.
-Touch illusions exploit the human sense of touch.
-Stage magic is a popular form of entertainment based on illusion. Magicians use tricks to give their audiences the impression that seemingly impossible events have occurred.
One thing you can be sure of, it is neither magic nor spiritual, such things don’t exist.
Following in the source link area are some sites which will provide some other insight.
I know many wiccans and neo-pagans who can see auras or uncanny visions. Welcome to an interesting but kinda scary and unexplored portion of human existance! Like any gift, now you have to know how to use it wisely.
First, you do NEED to be checked out for mental illness. It is a formality, but if this is not auras but some kind of undiagnosed brain thing, then you NEED to know before you can process any further. In most people it is something genuine, but you need to cover your bases.
Second, see if you can find someone to mentor you through this. Do you have any new agey stores in your town, they will often know the kind of people you should get in touch with. I’m not really an expert on this, but I know some people who see things quite often and you need to have people around to help you and talk you through stuff or you will go nuts.
Third, you need to read up about auras, spirituality, your particular religion perhaps. However no one has the literal truth, so don’t worry too much if books contradict each other or you think someone is 90% full of sh*t. You need to gain more information, you don’t need to agree with it all.
Fourth, you should probably get into a system of regular meditation. This will help you cope with stressers in your life, and give you time and space to critically assess what you are seeing so you can figure out what it means.
I don’t agree with witchcraft or new age philosophies. I am a Christian. However, that does not mean I don’t believe such things exist. I have seen demons, I have seen “auras,” I have heard angels. There is a spiritual world out there, and sometimes we can see into it. I am not convinced that we should, however. I believe that much of what people on acid trips or with schizophrenia see may, in fact, be something in the spiritual plane. I believe those with mental disorders should see a doctor, and I do not support the use of hallucinogens.
I also believe that demons will manipulate what you can see in the spiritual realm so that you will believe that you have been enlightened. The truth of the matter is, you have been deceived.
The truth is that we are in a spiritual war. This war takes place within us, and all around us. Satan will let you see auras, spiritual guides, or little green men from Mars if he can keep you away from the Bible and from the saving power of Jesus.
And yes, the more you believe in “spirituality” the more Satan will be able to deceive you.
I pray that Jesus will show you the subtleties of the evil one.
The auras can be a number of things. One possibility is that you have been given the gift of discernment. If this is the case, make a note of the color of the aura of specific persons and realize that they have a common character attribute connected to a specific color.
Another possiblity is that you are simply opening up to seeing more than what what is normaly available for seeing. This is an expanded consciousness that most of the population does not have.
When I first started seeing them all It was explained to me that I was getting in touch with witchcraft. Everyone is born with witchcraft and I don’t mean evil horrid witchcraft I am talking about paganism and Wicca. Embrace this it is truly a gift from the earth and no you are not crazy. The more understanding the better you will get with your powers and become enlightened Embrace this new found gift continue what you are doing and more powers will come.
