UpAura Vision


An aura is an energy field around something.

It contains information about the health of a creature, its emotional and mental state, and many other


Color, texture, shape, size, and motion of the aura all provide information about the creature or item.

Seeing the Aura

Relax your body, mind, and eyes.

Choose an object or person to look at that won't make you nervous.

 Look gently at the object, focusing your eyes slightly behind it.

Look with your third eye, the psychically sensitive area of your forehead

. Close your eyes and feel your focus shift up slightly, so that you seem to be looking out of your


Open your eyes, and your focus shifts back down to normal sight.

Open and close your eyes a few times to learn how it feels.

Avoid rolling your eyes upward; that will just give you a headache.

Once you are confident of the focus shift, do it gently with your eyes open.

Look out of your eyes and your forehead at the same time.

This shift of focus awakens psychic vision, which is used to see auras.

 To see the aura, look gently just past the object, using your eyes to see and keeping your focus lifted to

the third eye.

 When you begin to see lines of color around the object, you need to find out if it's an after-image or an

 actual aura.


After-images are a biological effect of your eyes, caused by eyestrain.

Look at the circle image for at least 30 seconds, and then look at the empty space next to it or a blank wall.

The opposite-color image you will see is an after-image.

To prevent after-images, blink often and don't look at one object too long.

As you improve, you will see the aura within a few seconds, before after-images appear.

 When you first see color or lines around an object, look away to make sure it's not an after-image.

To eliminate after-images, close your eyes for a minute or two.

 When you stop seeing the image on the inside of your eyes, the after-image is gone and you can go back

to seeing the aura.

Aura Variations

Auras have many shapes, sizes, colors, and textures.

There is no standard interpretation because different people perceive differently.

The best way to discover the meanings of colors and other attributes is to experiment.

 Read about traditional meanings and use them to decide what the colors mean to you.

For instance, someone who is decisive about his personal space may have a clear edge on his aura, a solid,

dense energy, and sharp, clear lines.

The aura can affect and be affected by a person's health.

Practice Techniques

Stay relaxed and calm as you practice.

 Practice often, but don't tire yourself.

 Often, the moment you relax and quit trying, you will suddenly see the aura quite clearly.

 If things aren't working, take a break, do something fun, and try again later when you can be more relaxed

and patient.

Aura vision may be easier when you are sleepy because you won't have the energy to force anything.

 If you have a difficult time letting things happen without forcing them, try once or twice when you are

tired or sleepy.

Dim lighting can be helpful so you don't strain your eyes.

 Put a solid colored background behind the object.

 Gray, white, brown, and dark colors work well because they are not visually distracting.

Multiple Layers

The aura has multiple layers, like an onion, but with each layer reaching from the very center of the person


 Close to the body, all of the layers overlap.

Each layer out reaches farther away from the body and becomes less dense, lighter, subtler, and more

difficult to see.

First, practice seeing the inner layers.

As you improve, let your awareness expand, growing lighter and softer.

 Reach outward with your aura to feel the aura you are looking at.

 Feel your vision shifting more strongly toward the third eye and clairvoyance.

Remain relaxed and feeling light as your vision expands to include the outer layers
