It is said and believed that every living thing and even not-so-living thing has an aura. This whole idea of the aura still seems to be something that sounds like a fairy tail of a myth amongst most dinner table conversations. Cool Contrast dives deeper on this idea, to uncover the mystery of the aura.
Scientist & researcher Tom Chalko, uses special instruments and measuring techniques to develop a deeper understanding of the aura and the electromagnetic field that it’s comprised of.
With our eyes we can sense (perceive) a very narrow range of vibration frequencies of ElectroMagnetic (EM) vibration corresponding to wavelengths from 0.3 to 0.7 micrometers – from purple to red. A mix of the vibration frequencies in the above range we perceive with our eyes as color. We can measure this mix precisely by recording a spectrum of light, but only using special instruments, called spectrophotometers.
Colors perceived by our eyes are only our partial perception of MUCH more complex reality : complex vibration of light (and other vibrations as well). To explain the above statement, we would need to define the spectrum and explain how we perceive color with our eyes.
Among many other researchers and the spiritual community as a whole, the aura is believed to be a good way to detect the physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of the person. The shape and color of it will change depending on the harmony and balance of energy within a person’s body. Researchers have recorded a number of different observations, believed to describe a person’s wellbeing, based off of the color, shape and intensity of their aura. Many describe the ability to see auras as something that we were all born with as spiritual beings, only the ability has went dormant within, possibly due to our materialist and mundane ways of life, causing the atrophy of the natural ability.
Researchers and spiritual healers describe various colors like deep red, meaning a grounded, strong will power, survival oriented emotional state. And other colors like gold meaning a person is enlightened, with much wisdom, and an intuitive state of being. Healers believe that the aura being very full and and vibrant all around the body indicates a perfectly well balanced health within the individual.
Now that we have a better idea of what the aura is, and what it looks like, how do we see it with the naked eye? According to Tom Chalko, there are various exercises we can practice to develop our auric sight and strengthen it. Let’s get into it.
How to see the Aura: developing auric sight
In an effort to see the Aura we need to:
- Increase the sensitivity of our eyes AND
- Extend the range of perceived vibration beyond the visible light.
It seems that we can accomplish the above by:
- Using and training our peripheral vision
- Increasing exposure
- Enhance visual sensation processing in the brain – enhance the communication between left and right hemispheres of the brain
Why should we use our peripheral vision? Our retina (the focal plane of the eye containing photosensitive cells) is less damaged there than in the central part. The central part of retina is constantly in use, and over the years suffers accumulated damage from excessive and/or artificial illumination (TV, computers, artificial light etc…). Also we have trained the central vision to be used in certain ways over the years.
Young children see auras much easier, because their central vision is not yet damaged. Once they go to school they are told to use their vision in a certain way, and gradually they lose their natural auric sight.
When we want to do a photo of a dark scene, we need to increase the time of exposure of the film. We can accomplish this for our eyes by concentrating exactly on ONE spot for a while (30-60 seconds).
When our eyes are moving, or a scene moves in front of our eyes, images are averaged by our eye. (25 TV frames per second seems a fluent motion). When we concentrate on one spot, we increase our sensitivity because we average the incoming light, accumulating its effect.
Our photosensitive cells (Red Green and Blue) operate as vibration sensors, much like 3 radio receivers tuned to 3 “colors” RGB. When you need to achieve a large vibration of , say, a swing – you can accomplish it using a very weak excitation force, but persist with it. Concentrating with your eyes on one spot you achieve a very similar effect: with a very small stimulation you can gradually swing your photo sensitive cells into large vibration, and this results in a visual sensation perceived by the brain.
Concentration exercise 1
Place the picture in Fig 1 about 1.5 m in front of you. Look exactly at the black spot for 30 seconds or so and observe colored dots with your peripheral vision. Resist temptation to look anywhere else but the black spot.
Note that colored areas seem to be surrounded by the “Aura” of a different color. When peripheral sensors are stimulated for some time, we have color sensations, much different than when we use the central vision. The longer you concentrate, the brighter is the “Aura” around colored areas, because your sensitivity increases. Yesterday you could look at this picture for hours and never see anything. Concentration at ONE spot for long enough is the key. Rather than the true Aura, this exercise demonstrates the principle of how to look to see human Auras by making you aware of certain specific capabilities of your eyesight and your perception.
Concentration exercise 2
This exercise aims to stimulate the communication between both hemispheres of the brain, thereby increasing the “processing power” needed to see Auras. Place the picture in Fig 2 about 1 meter in front of you. Stretch your hand forward so that one of your fingers is between and underneath circles.
Change focus on the tip of your finger and overlook the circles. You should see 4 circles. Then aim to overlap the middle two to see ONE CIRCLE WITH A WHITE CROSS on top of your finger, in the middle between the two. Seeing the cross is the evidence, that the left hemisphere of the brain (connected to the right eye) is communicating with the right hemisphere (connected to the left eye).
The video below shows what to do with your vision to achieve this exercise.
Below is the image you should be able to hold in your vision. The longer you can hold it and see a balanced cross with both blue and red circles, the better your auric sight is becoming. Hence, the more your brain hemispheres are becoming in-sync and balanced. This is your auric sight developing right before your eyes.
This exercise turns out to be extremely beneficial: 5 minutes of it seems to double the size of the electro-photonic aura as recorded by bioelectrography.
The cross will initially float and seem unstable. Experiment with the distance from your finger to your eyes to achieve a perfect cross. You gain a significant benefit after 3-5 minutes of maintaining a perfectly balanced cross, preferably without blinking, but a magic duration seems to be 45 minutes of concentration at the time, which is said to make a REAL difference to your mental and auric abilities.
In my experience it is best to start with a minute or two and gradually increase the time every week. Short and intensive concentration seems to be better than a longer one, interrupted by the lack of skill.
Gradually, with practice you should be able to achieve and maintain the cross without the finger. While maintaining the cross try to become aware of the other 2 circles as well as everything around using your peripheral vision. You should see Auric colors around the colored circles above with your peripheral vision. When you can analyze surroundings using your peripheral vision, without loosing the cross (and the concentration), you are ready to see and read auras.
Advanced levels of concentration :
One diameter in the cross seems usually “in front” of the other. This means, that one of your brain hemispheres seems to dominate the other. Males usually see the horizontal diameter above (left hemisphere dominates) females usually see the vertical diameter above (right hemisphere dominates).
Try to get the “hidden” diameter in front as much as possible, by concentrating, on demand. The final level of concentration is to achieve and maintain a perfectly balanced cross with all four arms of similar intensity, thereby achieving a perfect balance both hemispheres. Many people experience amazing effects here. Firstly, concentration gets much deeper. Secondly, after 2-3 minutes you seem like loosing sight, with bright background becoming dark purple or pink. Your sensitivity and awareness greatly increase.
Colors and Auric Pairs
In concentration exercises 1 and 2 we noticed that real colors are surrounded with Auras of different colors. These auric colors are not random. Following is a list of Auric Pairs of colors for all clean colors of the rainbow (monochromatic colors).
red gives turquoise aura, turquoise gives red aura
orange gives blue aura, blue gives orange aura
yellow gives violet aura, violet gives yellow aura
green gives pink aura, pink gives green aura
The above table applies also to intermediate colors, for example yellow-green color gives a pink-violet aura. Note, that above Auric pairs are DIFFERENT than complementary color pairs, “color wheels” and “color spaces” promoted by the science and art on Earth. Every child can confirm that auric pairs listed above are true.
