Aura reading is the ability to see a person’s electromagnetic field and discern meaning from its projecting color.

In order to understand this technique, it’s important to first know what an aura is.

An aura is thought of as the energy field surrounding the physical body, and it ranges in color and vibrancy.

Some people claim that they can see it with psychic abilities such as clairvoyance and heightened empathy, while others use photography, visual manipulation, and personality testing.

How Can I Tell What My Aura Is?

There are a variety of different ways to discover your aura. Some techniques you can practice by yourself, while others require special equipment or professional help.

Aura Readers

A psychic medium is somebody who claims to have ‘extra sensory perception’ also known as ‘ESP.’ These psychic abilities can range from being able to communicate with the deceased, predict future events, energy healing, telepathy, ect.  

Those claiming to have the power of clairvoyance say that they can read and interpret an aura and will often provide this service in exchange for money. 

Anyone claiming that they have psychic power should be taken with a grain of salt; no scientific evidence for extrasensory perception has been found.

Aura Photography

Aura photography uses special camera equipment to capture the electromagnetic field discharged from an object.

This form of Biofeedback photography requires the subject to be given an electrical charge while being photographed.

This creates interesting abstract photos that look like you can see multi-colored body heat coming from the person having their picture taken.

How to Read My Own Aura?

If employing a psychic medium or an aura photographer isn't for you, you can always learn to do it yourself. It is possible to see an aura without any special equipment, and you can determine its meaning with this aura color guide.

Step 1 : Find a white wall to use for your reading.
Make sure the light in the room isn't too dark or too light. Natural light is best, but a soft lamp or candle will work fine if the sun has gone down.
Step 2 :Open your hand and place your palm on the white background.
Relax your eyes and stare at the space between your thumb and index finger. Your vision should become blurred.

Step 3 : Remain staring at that spot with your eyes relaxed for one minute.
You should begin to see a colored emanation coming from the border of your fingers.

Step 4 : Keep practicing.
The longer you practice aura reading, the easier it will become and the more color variations you will begin to see.

How to Read Someone Else's Aura

The same technique can be used to read another person’s aura. The only difference is you can stare directly at the person instead of their hands.

Stand whoever’s aura you are reading in front of a white background and stare at their forehead.

Then, relax your eyes for a minute or two, and use your peripheral vision to view the auric layer around their physical body.
