There seems nothing “paranormal” in the Universe, except our limited understanding of Nature.
Long ago, people were able to see Auras. Advanced spiritual people such as Buddha, Jesus and their immediate students were painted with golden halos around their heads, because some artists could actually see their Auras.
In Australia remote West Kimberleys you can find prehistoric cave paintings (center), many thousands of years old, depicting people with golden halos (photo courtesy G.L.Walsh).
Nature seems to gave us all we need to see Auras. But we need to learn how to sharpen and use our senses. If you decide not to try, you will never see the Aura. On the other hand, when you see something for yourself, no longer will you need to rely on believing someone. You will know. And then you can use your knowledge to learn more.
Many great people in the past complained that "we have eyes and we do not see". In the Aura sections of this website you may discover what they meant.
Anyone can see auras to some degree. When every child sees a similar thing, I consider this a part of our Nature and I say that it deserves our attention.
Everything in the Universe seems to be just a vibration of space itself. Light, every atom, every part of an atom, every electron, every elementary “particle”, even encoding, retrieving and processing information in our thoughts and consciousness - all in their essence are just vibrations. Hence, we may define the Aura as a electro-photonic vibration. According to our friends from Thiaoouba, our soul (Astral body) is made of 4*1021 electrons that store and process information by means of emitting and exchanging photons. These photons influence the Aura that we can perceive. This definition is sufficient for the purpose of reading Auras, providing that we can sharpen our perception and sensitivity to see the Aura vibration.
The single most important property of the Aura seems to be the fact that it contains information about the object.
Aura around living (conscious) objects (people, plants...) changes with time, sometimes very quickly. Aura around non-living object (stones, crystals, water...) is essentially fixed, but can be changed by our conscious intent.
Colors and intensity of the aura, especially around and above the head have quite special meanings. Watching someone's aura you can actually see the other person's thoughts before you hear them expressed verbally. If they do not agree with what this person is saying, you effectively see a lie every time. No one can lie in front of you undetected. We cannot fake the Aura. It shows our True Nature and intentions for everyone to see.
Also, aura is our spiritual signature. When you see a person with a bright, clean aura, you can be sure that such person is good and spiritually advanced, even if he/she is modest and not aware of it. When you see a person with a gray or dark aura, you may be almost certain, that such person has unclear intentions, regardless how impressive, eloquent, educated, "good looking" or "well dressed" he/she seems to appear.
It is especially important to check the aura of any religious leader, "spiritual teacher", "master" or a "guru". Such a person should have a clearly defined yellow-golden halo around the head. If he/she does not have it, you are much better on your own.
Everyone has an Aura. But most people on Earth have very dull Auras. This seems to be a direct consequence of their life long materialistic attitude negating and suppressing the development of consciousness, cultivating fear, envy, jealousy and other similar emotions. Such attitude suppresses their True Nature, and their Auras seem to become suppressed too.
When you learn to see Auras, be prepared for a really hard question: “Can you tell me what my Aura is?” and the situation when you don't see any Aura or you see something you don't want to talk about. One of the best answers I found is “why don't you learn to see it for yourself?" And this is one of the main reasons why I teach people to see auras.
When people realize that their Aura is on display and many people are able (or unable) to see it, they will watch what they think. And they may try to see and improve their own Aura. In the process they will become better and wiser, being able to recognize intentions of other people. Surely, the entire world will become much better if all people can see and read Auras.
Very young children (up to 9 years of age) see auras naturally. Infants frequently look above a person in front of them. When they don't like the color of the aura above the head, or if this color is much different from their parent's aura, they cry, no matter how much smiling the person does.
Children have much cleaner and stronger auras than most of adults, who are usually completely enslaved by the materialistic world and suppress their Nature by following superficial examples. When I taught my 11 year old son to see his own Aura, he told me that when he was little he was able to see Auras most of the time. But no one paid any attention, so he thought that it was not important and maybe there was something wrong with his eyesight. This is a typical scenario. In my opinion children should learn to see and read Auras in primary school, so they never lose this natural ability.
