What is it called if you "feel" an aura?
Or is there such a thing?

I think my daughter has some abilities, so I asked her if she knew what auras were and if she could see them. She said she knew, but she didn't see them, she felt people's "energy fields".

What is that?

Thanks! :hi:

1. I think it means that she can "see" them
as most of us can feel/"see" them. I believe that we all can sense "vibes' of energy/auras-there are so many expressions that allude to with envy, seeing red,feeling blue, etc. And, with a bit of practice, we can learn to see auras more clearly.
Here's a nice little book that helped me to understand how:

I find it very beneficial to be able to see, as well as feel, people's energy. I can choose to see them or not, it's interesting! :hi:

2. hmmm...I could always feel people's energy.

Sometimes it would be so invasive when I was a kid that I realized only a few years ago that it caused my shyness. It as too overwhelming for me. Especially when strangers would look at me. It was like all of their energy would come through their eyes at me and I had no protection. My mother would get upset with me because she liked the attention people would give saying I was a cute kid. Haha hadn't thought about that in a while. :- )

3. We all have the potential for the exact same gifts and spiritual powers..
However we each "bloom"/manifest those powers/spiritual gifts at a different rate. For example some may be clairaudiant first..some may be clairvoyant, etc.
However it is usually as in the case of "Seeing" that we first learn to "feel" energy and we might also experience separate and intermittent flashes of "Seeing" the energy we are feeling. We can also sometime See without Feeling or Feel the energy field without being able to See it.
Seeing can be with a combination of the physical eyes with the Third eye (which is what and how I teach "Seeing" as it helps for everyone to be able to see the exact same thing) or it can be strictly a Third eye thing or even strictly a intuitive thing (knowing).
There can be any combination at first but as we grow and become stronger it begins to be more consistent and stronger and easier.
Once one begins "Seeing" with the physical eyes in conjunction with the Third eye you will see auras all the time. You get used to that too.
So what I am saying here is: First comes Feeling, then comes Seeing ....Usually..but not always.

Here is an exercise to feel your own or another persons energy field.
First clap the palms of your hands together sharply a few times. This is to aggravate the nerves and make your hand more sensitive (later on you don't need to do this) and ..holding one palms still..move the top tips of your fingers about an inch (more or can experiment) above the palm you are holding still...gently "comb" the air above your hand with your fingertips.
You can clap several times again and this time slowly "Pat" the air between your finger tips without touching the palms together and feel how thick the "air" gets.
If you have someone to practice on...clap your hands together again several time (you can also shake your hands a bit) and starting at the top of a persons body ( about two-four inches away from the need not touch the body)...softly "pat" the air above their body until you can feel a thickness to the air. Then slowly draw your hands down and try to feel out with your hands as you comb through their energy field.
It's a lot like using an invisible comb that as you move your light fibers through their energy can feel in your palm the vibrations of the energy field you are passing through..

4. Okay, so I asked her and she can see auras
if she tries, but she chooses not to because she prefers to feel them.

Thanks for all the replies. (I always have to re-read everyone's posts a few times to really absorb the content, so I may have questions later. :hi:)

7. some people are more visually attuned
others by feeling, others aurally (hearing aural, not "aura" lol).

I don't see auras, but I feel the emotionally energy (as an empathic type, it can be very overwhelming) and I often hear thoughts as well. Makes it tough to sort out, sometimes, my inner voice from others. Some, though, are very distinct. And they often use words and phrases that aren't in my normal writing or conversation, which also helps me sort it out.

5. There used to be a woman in my office who said she could see people's auras
I believe her, too. I was standing with a co-worker one day and she remarked that the woman's aura had lightened up, that it had been so bad recently as to be almost black. The woman who's aura she was reading had been severely depressed a few months before that over the death of her young niece. No way the aura-reader would have known about that.

6. feeling an aura
Definitely I cannot see auras!! I can feel them, but only by consciously "testing" them. Honestly, anyone can learn to feel auras by either using a pendulum or applied kinesiology. One can get yes/no answers as to whether an aura is weak or strong. Various levels of the aura can be tested, too.

I can "sort of" feel auras without this technique, but there is more precision in using the technique. And yes, it can be done "at a distance" as well.

8. Do you mean feel by entering their energy cloud? Or your reaction to their "vibe"?
It is possible to touch each chakra in another, if one wishes, which can be unpleasant. I was taught to sit with your solar plexus (where such contact initiates) turned slightly away from any subject you wish to scry, in psychic readings. Energy readings are different, and you have two choices. Touch them directly and perhaps become tainted by any darkness or insanity, or, allow it to come to you.

I've rarely been any good at the latter, and there are advanced techniques out there, so search if you want to learn about reading energy without making direct contact. Because reading the greedy and aggressive can be unbalancing. I have a hard time using my third eye upon the rich and powerful. Guh.


There was a Sherrif's associate in class today. I don't see colors but...his energy was that of dark scrutiny hidden behind a barrier. Prolly make a decent poker player, capable of remembering much and placing it into context as new information occurs, as well as comparing and contrasting it as he goes. Also, tedious as a friend, unless he can step out of that space every once and a while, which I doubt, as people do not build such intent/focus in order to allow it to diminish or to be so easily set aside. Some folks build it in order to defend themselves, to purposely build a barrier against intimacy, against being taken advantage of or tricked and hurt. Some do not; I didn't look too deeply at him to make a personal determination.

Unpleasant. All heavy business, no fun. It's much better to practice by looking at people in a state of joy.
