Aura: a sensibility or supposed emanation surrounding the body of a living creature, viewed as the essence of the individual. When my son was about nine, he said he sensed colors around people. He stated that his father and I had a light green color, (hope that's good) that my little sister had a red color, & that a brief acquaintance of mine had a black color. (He disliked the black aura). Now that he is grown he no longer senses colors, but he sees sort of a swooshy shadow thing that is outside, but part of a person. Does anyone care to share any of your interesting stories about auras?

Emanate Presence, you've written a very thoughtful, comprehensive answer (given the limited size of this format). The last paragraph strikes me as especially interesting, that anything alive is generating an energy field. Thank you for this!
Thank you Iholitza, this is the kind of information I'm looking for. If you have time, did you begin seeing auras when you were still a child?
Yes, I have always seen them. My son does as well. (I have two, but only one sees them from what I can tell.) I didn't actually realize I saw them though until I was 27 and someone else noticed I was doing it.
I don't see them as the big oval area either. The colors usually extend about 1 to 2 inches from the body. But the color is not as big as the whole aura. Although with a Kirlian camera they do appear a lot bigger.
I think it is fabulous that you see these sparks of color! Thank you for getting back to me so quickly, Iholitza. Isn't it interesting that one of your son sees auras and the other does not? No doubt, they're both equally amazing guys!
Hi Moonfroth, There is that question of perception in relation to projection. Was my son having an intuitive thought which caused him to attribute his ideas? Perhaps so. In any event, you and I have both been told our "auras" are green. How cool!
Hi there epbooks. Had my son not sensed them when he was little, I may not have thought much about them either. Thanks for stopping by.

LoisRyan13903, That's so cool. My son saw a light blue aura around this beautiful baby my mother used to take care of. He said that was a "good thing!"
Hi June. Good point. Unless it is of some help, why try to obtain this gift? On the other hand, when my son saw the black color, it (rightly) put me on the alert. I appreciate your interesting story about the white and red colors!
Seems like the black is more about what we cannot see rather than what they are putting out. They do change color. My daughter said this one teacher alway was blue and one day after she was all excited about something it turned yellow.
June, I do believe colors change. I also like to think that a more or less constant color signifies how someone feels most of the time. Interesting info about the dark color, or lack thereof. I'm just glad my son sensed it. It helped me!
Hi Borsia. How dreadful to see these auras only when someone is going to die. That would drive me a little crazy, I think. Thanks for sharing this unique story. Life is so full of mysteries.
Has it been useful? Do auras change or mostly remain constant on an individual. In my son's case, they were pretty consistent in any given person.
Usually they change depending on mood and circumstaces. It has been useful. At first it was just amazing then it became very helpful to me and the person
I would know by color what was going on (to a limit)
Hi Deborah Sexton. No doubt, it must be quite amazing to see these colors! Thank you very much for further answering my question. I truly appreciate it.
Please just call me Deborah, that is my real name. Sexton is my pen nameee
I surely will, Deborah. Most everyone calls me Savvy, which I welcome. Enjoy your Friday!
Nice to meet you Savvy. You know your son could get it all back with practice. I have a couple of hubs he could read if he's interested
Thanks. I'll take a look at your hubs for myself, but pretty much my son is so busy enjoying life that I don't think it matters to him if he sees auras or not. He's my spiritual renegade... a free spirit, in a very loving way.
