To see a person's aura, begin by paying attention to feelings achieved when someone is present. Learn the meanings of color in auras and associate the colors with the appropriate feelings. Practice developing peripheral vision by focusing on a spot for up to 60 seconds to increase the level of light sensitivity. Prop books covered in aura colors against white walls to practice focusing the eyes to the side to see the color illuminating from the book.
Once practice with the books is complete, recruit a partner to stand 18 inches in front of a blank wall in a dimly lit room. Instead of focusing directly on the person, look to the side and at the wall. Identify the color and ask the partner to sway from side to side. If the identified color moves with them, it is a true energy field.
Individuals can also practice on themselves. The individual should relax in a faintly lit room and rub their index fingers together to create energy. Move the fingers 1/2 inch apart and identify the aura between them. Practice in short spurts to avoid eye strain.
An understanding that aura colors are viewed positively or negatively in different circumstances must be achieved before properly identifying an aura. Red can mean a healthy ego or anxiety. Orange can mean courage or stress. Yellow signifies optimism or the fear of losing control. Green shows a love of animals, people and nature or that the individual feels extreme jealousy. Blue indicates sensitivity or the fear of self-expression.
Some colors strictly express one finding. Violet indicates wisdom, while silver shows the individual's spiritual abundance. Gold can mean divine protection. Black means pent up grief and future health problems. White shows a person who is pure and truthful.
