HJ: The ability to see the aura is an incredible skill that will unlock a greater understanding of the nature of reality for those who master the art. One must be able to correctly interpret what they are seeing in order to experience the full benefits of being able to observe the aura. What good is a book if you don’t know how to read? If you can see the fantastic colors and energies encompassed by the aura but have no idea what they tell you about the person or object you are viewing, then they are nothing more than abstract visual stimuli. The colors and their locations can tell you quite a bit about the energetic nature of the person or object you are viewing, so much so, that you may be able to offer someone great insight about themselves that can help them to reach a more complete understanding of who they are and what issues they are dealing with at this moment. This a profound skill that will allow one to be of service to nearly anyone they encounter in their lives.
Even for those who cannot yet see the aura, understanding the various colors and their relationships with the Chakras and various emotional states is an incredible skill that will only deepen ones understanding of the more subtle levels of reality that occur silently all around us.

Colours and Auric Pairs
In concentration exercises 1 and 2 we noticed that real colours are surrounded with Auras of different colours. These auric colours are not random. Following is a list of Auric Pairs of colours for all clean colours of the rainbow (monochromatic colours).
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 colours, for example yellow green colour gives a pink violet aura. Note, that above Auric pairs are DIFFERENT than complementary colour pairs, “colour wheels” and “colour spaces” promoted by the science and art on Earth. Every child can confirm that auric pairs listed above are true.
A good look around will prove that the Nature is very fond of Auric Pairs. Take any red coloured bird and you can be sure, that this bird will have turquoise body parts too. The same applies to blue orange, yellow violet and pink green combinations, not only in birds, but in fish, butterflies, flowers etc.. – anything which is vividly coloured by Nature. Occasionally you will see “the next best” colour instead of a perfect auric match. Have you noticed that MOST of flowers on Earth that grow on trees and are surrounded by GREEN leaves are either violet, pink(purple) or red? Auric Pairs in Nature are very stimulating, and frequently induce an overwhelming feeling of beauty and happiness.
You need to memorize and know well the above Auric Pairs. Why ? Because if you see a pink Aura around someone in a bright green dress, there is a strong possibility that you see the Aura of a dress, not of a person.
Seeing the Aura
This exercise is designed to see Aura for the first time and/or practice seeing Auras. Choosing good conditions is important: not only you see the Aura better, but also to gain a confidence about what you see.
1. Situate the person in front of a very softly illuminated PLAIN WHITE background. A colour background will change Aura colours, so you need additional knowledge about combining colours. Some combinations of background and Aura colours may cause misinterpretation problems.
2. Choose ONE SPOT to look at. The middle of the forehead is VERY GOOD. This is a location of so called Brow Chakra or the Third Eye. In some cultures (India) they put a mark on a forehead. Such a mark in ancient times meant the invitation to look and see the Aura.
3.Look at this spot for 30 to 60 seconds or longer
4. After 30 seconds analyse surroundings with your peripheral vision, while still looking at the same spot. Continuing the concentration is most important. Resist temptation to look around. You should see that the background nearby the person is brighter and has a DIFFERENT colour than the background further away. This is your own perception of the Aura. The longer you concentrate, the better you will see it. Remember, concentration on one spot increases your sensitivity by accumulating the effect of the Aura vibration reaching your eyes.
5. Most advanced Aura exercises are performed in total darkness, but require hours of concentration and systematic practice.
Taking a Snapshot of an Aura
Looking at Aura After concentrating long enough to see the aura, close your eyes. For a second or two you will see the Aura ONLY. Be prepared. You have only one second or two until your photosensitive cells stop vibrating and sending visual sensations to the brain. And if you miss is, you have to start concentrating again. Try to experiment how fast or slow you should close your eyes.
Observing auras of other people
The best is to look directly at someone’s brow chakra (third eye or wisdom eye, which is located 1.5 cm above the nose, between eyes) and aim to achieve the state of mind similar to the concentration technique described above for at least 30-60 seconds. I have tried also looking at throat and heart chokers with similar results. However, if you concentrate on someone’s chest it looks so unusual that the person concerned is usually very uneasy about it. When you look into someone’s brow chakra you can actually continue conversation.
Again, VERY softly illuminated background, with no shadows is best. With practice, any uniformly illuminated background (such as a blue sky for example) will suffice.
How to see your own Aura
Stand about 1.5 m in front of a good size mirror. In the beginning it is best if the background behind you is plain white and there are no shadows. Illumination should be VERY soft and uniform not bright. Follow instructions above for seeing Auras.
PRACTICE: For at least 10-15 minutes each day to increase your sensitivity and develop Auric sight. Remember that practice is required to develop Auric sight.
Auric sight and after-images
One of the most frequently asked questions during this technique are my eyes playing tricks on me ?” The answer is no, you have just learnt to pay attention to what your eyes are capable of. Light sensors in our eyes (Red Green and Blue) are vibration sensors which are highly non-linear and they have memory. The consequence of memory is that they can oscillate for up to several seconds after the visual stimulation has been discontinued.
This memory of visual stimulation is frequently perceived as afterimage. Afterimages have a precisely the same shape as original images. Afterimage of an object surrounded by its Aura is larger than the original image. The increase in such afterimage is due to the vibration of an Aura and actually represents a “snapshot” of an Aura. It is therefore essential to focus at one spot when watching the Aura and resist temptation to change the point of focus, otherwise an image of the Aura may become confused with afterimage of the object.
Meaning of Aura and its colours
The Aura is a reflection of our True Nature at any given moment. At this point it is perhaps necessary to explain what do I mean by “True Nature” and why some effort is necessary to “discover” it. Our society emphasizes symbols, stereotypes, habits, manners, superficial behaviour, pretending, following others and submitting free will to “leaders”. Our “education” is largely based on views and expectations of people who try to control the flock.
Our True Nature is what is left when we recognize and discard all our habits, stereotypes, manners, and pretending, superficial behaviour and become fully conscious, truly natural and spontaneous. Note that some people are so attached to their manners and habits that it is very hard, if not impossible, to discover who they really are. The only way to get an instant insight into their personality is to watch their Aura, because it shows their True Nature, behind any facade of superficial behaviour.
In general, the more colourful, cleaner and brighter the Aura, the better and more spiritually advanced is the person. Also, the more uniform the energy distribution in the Aura, the healthier and more balanced the person is.
Distribution of the energy in the Aura can serve as a powerful medical diagnostic tool, but usually requires using a complex equipment. The scope of this article is to concentrate on what we can easily see with our eyes.
Our Aura surrounds the entire body, but the interpretation of colours below relates to the Aura around the head only. Meaning of colours around the head presented below suggested in the literature has been confirmed by the author. When you learn to see Aura well, you can verify it for yourself, by concentrating on certain thoughts while watching your Aura, or telling people what their thoughts are when you see their Auras.
Usually, people have one or two dominating colours (strong points) in their Aura. These colours (or their Auric pairs) will be most likely their favourite colours.
In addition to dominant colours, the Aura reflects thoughts, feelings and desires, which appear like “flashes”, “clouds” or “flames”, usually further away from the head. For example a flash of orange in the Aura indicates a thought or desire to exercise power and control. Orange as a dominant colour is a sign of power and general ability to control people. Quickly changing “flashes” indicate quickly changing thoughts.
Meaning of Clean Colours of the Aura
(colours of the rainbow, bright, shiny, monochromatic colours):
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 colour in the Aura, when the person is receiving and/or transmitting energy or is in telepathic communication. For example Michael 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 execute 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 colour in the Aura is quite rare on Earth and appears only as a temporary thought, never as a strong point in the Aura.

Why does the white colour in the Aura indicate problems? White colour is like a noise, rather than a set of harmonious tones (monochromatic colours). 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. Several hours before the death, the Aura becomes white, and greatly increases in intensity. Note, than in most cultures the death is depicted in WHITE (not black), because in the past, people could actually see a white Aura before death. It seems that our ancestors knew much more than we are prepared to admit.
The Aura & Chakras
The aura is generally described as having seven layers and is shaped like an egg of light surrounding the body. To some it may look like a heat haze radiating out around the person, shimmering with light, energy and every colour imaginable. The seven layers of the aura are generally said to be:
Etheric Aura – Root or Base Chakra
The etheric aura extends about two inches out from the physical body and is usually a shade of blue in colour. The shade of the blue relates to the physical condition and health of the physical body. In the etheric aura you feel all the sensations, both pain and pleasure
Emotional – Sacral or Naval Chakra
The emotional aura extends about two to four inches from the physical body and appears as rainbow coloured clouds. This aura is associated with feelings, positive feelings generally create bright colours, where as negative feelings generally create darker colours.
Mental – Solar Plexus Chakra
The mental aura extends about four to eight inches from the physical body and is usually a bright shade of yellow in colour. Within this aura are our thoughts and mental processes. The more active our thinking processes the brighter our mental aura becomes. Within this aura can be found thought forms.
Astral – Heart Chakra
The fourth layer is the Astral layer. This layer extends about 8 to 12 inches from the physical body. It is similar in appearance to the emotional body, the colours are brighter and rose hued with the light of love. This layer marks the division between the physical layers and the higher layers. It is where we experience love, both personally and spiritually, the love for humanity.
Atmic (Etheric Template) – Throat Chakra
The fifth layer is the Etheric Template. This layer is a copy of the physical body on a higher level. It extends about 12 to 24 inches from the physical body and appears as a blueprint like the negative of a photograph. The etheric template holds the etheric aura in place. This level is associated with a higher will more connected with Divine Will. Here we create through word and thought, and we must take responsibility for our actions.
Intuitive/Celestial – Third Eye Chakra
The sixth layer is the Celestial body. It extends about 24 inches from the physical body and appears as pearly shimmering light of pastel colours. It is the emotional level on the spiritual plane. Through this layer we are able to commune with Spirit. It is the level of unconditional love and trust. It can be reached through meditation and other spiritual practices of a devotional nature. The celestial body carries our experience of spiritual love, the connection with and nurturance of all life.
