To see human auras, go to an area where there is not a lot of bright, harsh lighting, explains Chios Energy Healing. The background behind the body or body part you are viewing should not be dark or light, but a neutral, medium color. Relax the eyes and try to look at the body part in a steady but unfocused way, as if gazing at something in the distance.
Using the hands as practice, hold them out, arms extended with palms facing up. Focus on the space around the hands and on the shape of the hands. After a short time, glance away from the hands and try to hold a mental picture of the space around them. Think about what the hands looked like and whether there was any fuzziness or haze around them.
With a soft gaze, look back at the hands and check to see if an aura or layer of shine has formed around them. Don't make the focus too hard; try to maintain a soft gaze. Repeat the process numerous times, each time trying to allow a stronger impression of light surrounding the hands to form mentally. This may help the aura become more easily visible.
