There's a real simple system I use to read auras, and I know of Richard Webster's system which is more elaborate. Anyone else do this?

I haven't seen it around much. I've been doing it for a while and found it useful and fun, it's not all I do, but something extra I throw in while also performing numerology and PsyCard readings.

My system is on my website in case anyone is interested.

So how many of you use or have used Aura Readings?

Hi,

I have been using Websters system since the late 1980's and later added in adaptations from Martin's The KEN System. Of course by now it has changed into more my own system that is based on what Richard and Ron published. It would be interesting to take a look at what you are doing. While I have not read your ebook, I can say that aura reading can go over very well and is something for any psychic entertainer that does readings to look into.

I was flying back from somewhere, on my way to somewhere else. Seated next to me was a very attractive young lady. She noticed I was making notes in a script (for a cartoon I was recording later that day) and we fell into conversation. It turns out that this young woman could not only SEE auras, she specialized in giving aura massage. She told me that the aura around my head had red streaks in it. After moving her hands around my temples for a bit (no contact with the head part at all, at all) she told me that the red streaks were gone and my aura was a healthy orange all through.

I was of course, much relieved at this news.

I have heard that having too much red or green rattling around in your aura is a not a good thing.

How does one read an aura? Do you actually see the aura? Pardon my ignorance, but this is the first I've heard of this subject. I've heard of the concept of auras, but not of having them read in an entertainment context.

I kinda experimented with the Lee Earle aura cards concept that I found in Trilogy 1-2-3 and it's ok. But what I do in the middle of the reading is that I will ask the sitter " What is your favorite color?" then go off of that. In other words, the aura part of the reading plays only a small part. That way no cards are needed.

The only other book I use to talk about auras is a "shut-eye" book by James Van Pragh who really gets into the subject. By the way Conus, red means passion and green might indicate that one is a "healer".

All the best,

What is an aura?

All living things are made up of a complex combination of atoms, molecules and energy cells. As these ingredients coexist, they generate a large magnetic energy field that can be sensed, felt and even seen around the physical body. This energy field is often called an Aura.
 
Auras are commonly associated with people. Sometimes we even use them to describe people, "He has an aura about him." or "She just has a glow about her". But in fact all living things generate this field of energy. When associated to a person, the aura can provide insight into the spiritual, emotional and physical aspects of that individual.
 
The knowledge and acceptance of auras has existed in various religions around the world for thousands of years. From Buddhist priests to Native American Shamans, many civilizations have practiced translating and incorporating the use and interpretations of these energy fields into their culture.

They say that auras can be seen by anyone who spends the time and effort to develop, practice, study, and understand this forgotten sense.

In an entertainment context you don't actually have to see the aura....

I'm going to ask some annyoing questions. Please don't take them as condescending or disrespectful. I'm simply looking to define the terms we're using. And so there's no question as to where I'm coming from, I am a skeptic who, to this point in my life, has never seen any sort of proof that auras exist. I'm willing to be proven wrong, however, but I'm going to need to see some evidence. At this point, I do not believe that auras exist, but again, if I were shown evidence to the contrary I would be willing to change my position.

I'm clear on the atoms and molecules, but would you be kind enough to define "energy cells"?

Quote:

Can you explain further? Or point me to a source where this process is described in detail? How exactly do atoms, molecules, and energy cells generate a large magnetic energy field?

Quote:

How does one measure this field of energy? What kind of energy are we talking about? Potential or Kinetic?

Quote:

Who are "they"? And in what sense has the ability to see auras been "forgotten"?

I hope I don't come off as a jerk for asking these questions. I'm making no effort to hide the fact that I'm a skeptic who tends to disbelieve these kinds of things, but I am ready and willing to be shown proof and I continue to have an open mind.

Thank you for your time.

Barbara Brennan teaches a very easy and quick way to begin to see auras in her book "Hands of Light". This really works and you can learn (or teach) someone how to see the first level of the aura in about 10 minutes or so...works for people, plants and animals. Seeing really is believing and this method really allows one to see the aura within minutes. Don't expect to see auric colors right away, though, this does require a meditative state (alpha level, I guess?) but this too can be done. What you'll see to begin with looks similar to cigarette smoke.

As magicians, we know that our eyes and our mind can play tricks on us. Is it possible that there is some kind of mild hallucination that occurs after going into the meditative state, or that one's mind imagines the aura?

In Carl Sagan's book, "The Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark," he says that it's not terribly uncommon for humans to occasionally hallucinate without drugs.

Oh, I'm really sorry...uhm, I am a complete and total newbie to magic - I've always had an interest in it and am just now beginning to explore it. I have been a professional tarot card reader and metaphysical instructor for about 10 years. I know the worlds are different, but I would really like to blend the two. I have a huge problem making "psychic claims" (this is a personal thing and I don't have a problem with others making such claims). Anyway, I happend to do a google search for "psychic entertainment" and discovered that there are people making a living as psychics without all of the psychic claims and that appealed to me a great deal.
Anyway...Smile...the first layer of the aura that one sees is not seen while in an altered state...the colors of an aura are seen while in an altered state, not quite the deep level of hypnosis, but not at all like being completely "awake", either. I have only seen the colors of an aura a few times in my life but I can easily see the first layer of an aura most any time at all.

Here's a question, Autumn. Would you be able to see the aura if a person was obscured? For example, let's say that I'm 5 feet, 11 inches tall, and I'm standing behind a brick wall that is exactly 6 feet tall. You are standing on the other side of the wall, and cannot see me at all. Would you be able to see my aura? If my understanding is correct, one would be able to see the aura, even if the person from whom the aura is emanating is obscured behind the wall.

Well, the first layer of the aura is only about an inch or so away from the body, so, sure, I guess it would be possible to see the very tippy edge of the first layer.

Really? That's great. I've been thinking of trying to find a way to objectively test whether or not one can actually sense an aura. Taken from a person who claims to be able to see auras, I think this is a good start. Do you believe that you could definitely do this? The reason I ask is because if you were really, truly able to see an aura, you'd be eligible to win the James Randi Educational Foundation $1 million dollar paranormal challenge. (Cue the Randi-haters to come out of the woodwork...)

If you can do what you say you can do, I would help you negotiate a test protocol, and perhaps the two of us can split the money...perhaps 70/30 or 80/20? Heck, I'd settle for 90/10 Smile

So, whaddaya say?

Really? That's all I'd have to do? That just can't be right...why hasn't someone else claimed that cash already? Just to see an aura? There would have to be a black background behind the person, but other than that...? I am sorry that I gave the name of the book now...LOL! Yes, certainly, if that would qualify, let's chat...I could do a lot with 90% of a million dollars...or whatever amount. Anyway, really, I'm telling you there is nothing to it: if you can see you can see an aura. Please get that book or just read it while seated at the Barnes and Noble of your choice...you can do this is 10 minutes.

John, unfortunately that test has already been done by Randi himself. He had a bunch of people who saw auras look at other people and call out the colors the saw so that each person had a distinct aura. Now those people were put behind screens that obsured them just enough, but should have the auras creeping out of the sides and top... they couldn't pick out the people anymore via their auras.
This one is too easy to test and you had the right method, but it can still be used to throw in a new age spin on mentalism.

Autumn,

Welcome! Thanks for the lead on the Brennan book. I have not read the book "Hands of Light", but your post is very interesting. Given that we are talking about a "non-magic" concept. Would you be open to sharing the basic idea of how the person is taught to see the aura in the Brennan system? If you would prefer to private message me, please feel free to do so.

What I wrote above is a section of my eBook on Aura Reading, so when you go out to perform it, you know a little about what it is ... in case someone wants to discuss it with you further.

As far as the eBook is concerned, you don't see Auras, you don't have to, it's a simple system for those interested in introducing this sort of "psychic phenomena" into their acts ... or just for fun.

You skeptics take all this way too seriously ... take a deep breath and relax....
