An aura is the electrical pulse of our being. I have had the pleasure of seeing auras for most of my life. I remember as a child telling my mother that there was a light around the people as we walked throught the CNE. My mother of course dismissed this as me being tired. As I grew older the auras of people seemed to fade as I was not able to see them for awhile. Maybe I did not even care. But now it seems that as I come back to my spirituality I am able to see this part of the living once again. Do you see auras if so please share your experiance? If you do not see them do you want to or not?
You might want to have your eyes checked out. Auras don't exist around people.
There are many things in life that people with closed minds cannot see.
No, there are those who pretend to see things that aren't really there, whether they are lying, delusional or just have some mental disorder.
There is no need for your rudness and your obvious disbelief in things that you cannot see yourself shows me even further into your soul and that what you call your self is true to your own life path. Sir you have my pity.
Yes, those who pretend they are "special" and claim to see things the rest of us cannot see are most certainly the ones I referred.
Of course, a myriad of reasons can be evidenced as to why they want to believe they're "special" - why do you believe you are?
It is not necessary that she would be telling lie. Normally we can't see infra-red and ultra-violet i.e. we can see just a limited spectrum of light. The ability of every eye is different from the others. Dogs can see infra-red and even snakes can. So there can be few humans as well who get the ability to see the lights that a normal eye can't. There's nothing strange in it.
Dogs peak limits are at the yellow-green 555nm and blue-violet429nm within the color spectrum. No, the can't see infrared.
The longest visible wavelength for the human eye is 700nm which is deep red. Infrared is longer and invisible to the human eye.
To correct your statement "The longest known visible wavelength for the human eye is 700nm which is deep red." When quoting science it's important to quote it as it was written and not out of context to suit your needs. Science recognises that though all human bodies act similar, they are not the exact same and therefore do not act the exact same. Many variables make a wide variety of possibilities available.
And, what exactly are my needs here and how did I quote that out of context?
You seem to have an underlying need to disprove anything occult. I tend to see you speaking out against anything and everything to do with the occult in any way, shape, or form as you see fit. Most of us understand by now that you believe in absolutely nothing at all. That's fine.
Dropping the word known takes it out of context as it takes away from the fact the possibility was left open that it could change. There by its used in a context to further your argument for it not being possible when scientists say that they don't know if it's possible that it could change or be different.
Science is just as much of a guessing game as believing in something is.
Really? I thought this was a forum?
The propagation of nonsense causes misinformation, confusion and delusion.
For the believer, it would be.
It's not about being a believer. Not everything can be proven which even science admits. They can make guesses, guesses that can be quite accurate but they are unable to explain everything. You can call it the propagation of nonsense, but that very nonsense is where science comes from. You would probably contest Alchemy being real at all, yet Alchemy was the original science. It is also Occult. But like many who refuse to actually learn your taking it upon yourself to name everyone as wrong. If you believe your the only right person anywhere in the world that's fine. When you try to call someone out and have your faults shown to you, at least have the grace to drop it instead of continuing with more nonsense that you like to propagate. Harming others doesn't make you any more right.
Agree Einder, Science is nothing but the game of guessing and discovering the existing facts. And the statement of Troubled Man is true as well that it's a forum which is meant for discussion and expression of opinion.
I back discussion. Calling everything wrong is not a discussion. I will admit that it is an opinion, but everything can't be wrong and gibberish just because some wants to make repeated posts saying over and over again that it is.
Yeah that's a valid point. Definitely if one is just negating and negating then discussion becomes useless and meaningless.
Science is a method of extracting facts, it is not really a guessing game because guesses are usually not based on other facts and knowledge, but instead based on the uninformed and unfounded.
Sorry, but science does not make such admittances.
You appear not to know much about how science works.
No, it doesn't.
Actually, one just came before the other, they are not the same things nor are built on the same principles.
I never said everyone was wrong or that I was the only right person in the world, these are conclusions you've made.
My faults? What does the subject matter have to do with me? Who am I harming?
What is a hypothesis if not an educated guess? Keyword would be guess. This is where all science begins and has begun for a long time. There is not facts to guessing, there never have been. All that's happening is a serious of guesses until we find the fact and latch on to it. Sometimes easy, sometimes not, but it's still a guess.
The subject matter doesn't have to do with you, at all in fact. Your consistent negativity and normally being unwilling to discuss things does harm others. You convince them they are wrong without ever giving them anything to show it. Instead you leave a trail of confused people because now they have no understanding beyond it's all just gibberish. That's not a very productive way to look at life.
Alchemy is science. Or perhaps more specifically a form of science that mixes in belief. Not done amongst most scientists now days, but originally Alchemy started out as a way to prove people knew the world around them..then part of it turned into what we now call science while the other part decided to focus on the transmutation of metals (which I still don't understand) but it is the basis for science. We can agree to disagree on this though as it has no accurate bearing on Auras.
It is an explanation of an observed phenomenon based entirely on facts and theories.
No, the keyword is "educated"
No, that's just pure guesswork.
So, what you're saying is when folks spew nonsense and garbage, they are harmed when others laugh at them? And, you believe that they are confused and have no understanding AFTER being laughed at? That's quite funny.
It isn't called science when you mix in belief, it's called pseudoscience, every hear of that term before?
Yes, and very much like Astrology and Astronomy, one came before the other.
We did not have facts and theories until people sat around and cooked up the theories to try and find the facts.
I will give you that the keyword is educated. However, you also have to understand that before education it was all guess work.
No, laughing at them is fine, I can't stop anyone from laughing at something they find funny, but going around stating everything gibberish confuses people. They don't understand why your finding it to be gibberish.
I've heard of pseudo-science, but there was no "original" science. Before even Alchemy all we had was what we could see around us and that was all that existed. Overtime things have become what they are.
I'll give you that, can't really argue with it lol.
I wouldn't be surprised... science thinks at this point that it can account for approximately 10% of all matter and energy in the universe with matter/energy that we have discovered... who knows what makes up the other 90%
Maybe it's the auras given off by people that account for the other 90%?
Could be, who knows. The idea of spirit/energy bodies would go far to explain some strange phenomenon, such as the man who could hold a lightbulb and cause it to turn on. He could also shock people at will.
The point is, we really don't know. We know there is a lot out there that we can't even see, so it's kind of silly to say you know what that stuff isn't.
Sure, but nowhere near as silly as claiming someone can hold a light bulb and turn it on.
Studies have shown that fruits and vegetables still attached to their root, tree, ground, give off a strong electrical charge. Once picked the charge is less and once cooked, there is no electrical charge at all. So I would imagine it's the same for all living things.
Yes, we often talk about the energy of living things in vibrations. I belive this can be seen by those of us that are sensitive to these energies. I will take a deeper look at my garden as it comes out of it's winter slumber. Thank you!!!
Never heard of that one before. What studies?
Sorry, it was actually a demonstration I saw on tv. but here is something which essentially details the process in cells and therefore the probability of current in living things.
http://www.scholarpedia.org/article/Ele … _membranes
Excellent article, thank you for showing it. Yes, I've seen similar articles before in which they calculate the rest potentials of electrical properties, particularly the cell membranes of neurons.
Although these rest potentials are most certainly measurable, we can see through the equations used from Kirchoff's Law that the "sum of all currents is zero because the bodies system requires equilibrium, hence the conservation of charge "requires that all currents cancel each other out" - the reason for that is because "there is a fixed conductance between the two coupled neurons (conductance g > 0 always) and the current flowing between them is proportional to the difference of the voltages in these two cells"
Further to that, because cell membranes act as capacitors we can transform the rest potentials and calculate voltages using Ohms Law and can see that voltage potentials are around -70mV.
Of course, if we take a bare copper cable and place much more voltage potential across it, we still don't see "auras" or anything else being illuminated even if we allow the potential to flow across it and observe a high amperage, and -70mV is very tiny compared to the voltages we place across those cables.
Yes, but the necessary stability which expresses the value of the voltage, whether resting or dynamic, is changeable based on permeability factors. Therefore, although neutrality is assumed because there is no measurable charge, there is still charge potential. Based on that potential, it's not unrealistic to extrapolate greater potential as yet undetected or undetectable by current (no pun intended) means.
Come on TM, don't you remember Uncle Fester lighting up the light bulb in The Adams Family? That's proof enough for me!
You are not worth a reply and if you wish to speak to your friend do it through the e-mail portion of this site.
With all due respect if an aura is an electrical pulse of/off our being then it should be detectable by the use of a camera that is sensitive to the invisible parts of the electromagnet spectrum.
I've seen it photos as well and there are many books writen on the subject with accompanying photos. It's the same idea as when an orb or a mist appears in a photo. It does not happen every time.
Baloney. Migraines, epilepsy and other visual disorders are often the explanations. Like I said earlier, get checked out.
Or, you're referring to Kirlian photography, like these two coins...
It can be, there's a special camera called a Kirlian that takes pictures of Auras. I've had mine taken.
The Aura around Living things is like the corona around the moon.
If you see auras, you may not be psychic; you may have a brain or vision disorder. See your physician ASAP. --Robert T. Carroll
If you can see or prove that auras are real James Randi has one million dollars for you, congratulations!!
http://www.randi.org/site/index.php/1m- … ation.html
If you don't want to do it for the money, please donate the money to some charity.
I'll be wating for the news, has you will be the first person to win this challenge and it has been arround for many years now...
Every so often we get the same question on these forums. And yes, no one has claimed the $1,000,000 yet. Usually the poster merely gets miffed at whoever tells them this but are usually never heard from again on the subject. But hey, perhaps this one is the real thing?
The problem is even if someone can see it, they couldn't prove it because no one else can see it. So it's a dead end until the rest of us catch up.
If it is real there are test that can be made to test the veracity of the claims.
Guess what, it seems that no one, ever, could prove his point!
Old world medical thinking. There was a time when labotomies were performed on people who were thought to be crazy and blood was drained out of sick people to purify them.
So when the tests are created, they will be created by those who can see. This is usually the case anyway. Those with vision enough are the world changers.
I would normally say this ludicrous as the naked human eye is not suppose to be able to see the colours given off by electromagnetic fields. I do see them myself though. I've seen people without them and people with them. For me though the color is mostly stagnant and rarely changes. Mostly I see the thickness of the band if you understand what I'm talking about.
It is said that those with the ability to see such things were the one's called to be things such as healers and shamans. That of course was a long time ago but it doesn't take away from what these people did. Shamans were the priests, counsellors, and confidants of a great many people. Healers were of course, Healers. The one's who dedicated their lives to fixing the afflictions of others. Now days we would call them Doctors, but being a Doctor isn't really a calling for many of them. Just a little insight from knowledge I've gathered about it over the years though. Take it for a grain of salt if you wish. I really don't have a scientific explanation as it's not suppose to be possible.
Auras are possible but seen for reasons that can be explained scientifically, such as migraines, synesthesia, epilepsy, a disorder within the visual system, a disorder within the brain, or due to the influence of psychedelic drugs such as LSD. Eye fatigue can also produce an aura, sometimes referred to as eye burn.
Yes, but those claiming to see such had rather believe they are somehow gifted or have psychic abilities. Most seem to be of the female persuasion.
Yeah I know... but such claims aren't based on science.
Of course not, but try and tell the psychos....er, I mean,...psychics that!
Ever use a nightscope? Heat signatures do exist. Auras exist. Heat signatures and auras are related. We can see more than a blind person can, yet you all flip out in ridicule when someone claims to be more perceptive than you. I suppose divining is also bunk, although oil and natural gas divining is still used.
Are you inferring detecting a heat signature using an infra red device is the same as observing an aura with one's eyes only, as some claim they do? If so, why hasn't someone already claimed the million? Are you also suggesting auras and divining are related in some manner?
I said it is related, in that it is a reaction to energy levels in the body. Some people are more sensitive to heat/cold, some are more sensitive to light, some can detect other aspects, and yes, auras are related to divining because it is a reaction to the flow of energy. Some people have no luck at divining at all. Have you ever walked into a room where you could feel the tension without any other clues that something was wrong. That's what is referred to as "vibrations". Some people give off really bad vibes, some put off really good ones.
Pure baloney. It's funny how the religious take their beliefs to almost any level of silliness, believing in any nonsense they come across.
Has nothing to do with religion. In fact, religion is a hindrance to this sort of thing stating that these people are to be avoided. IMO, we should never close our minds to anything, especially if it has some science behind it, however limited.
The point A Troubled Man has made is that the mindset of a person who believe in Jesus is the same of a person who believes in auras, it requires the same amount of faith or delusion, it is just a preference on words.
Open mind or close mind has nothing to do with believing in every nonsense that is presented to you, being open minded IS accepting the conclusion in face of the evidence no matter what your personal beliefs are!
I disagree with the premise he's making as you explained it. Auras are seen, Jesus is not, though he is claimed to have been seen, so the modern day believer bases his belief on what others have told him. The aura believer has seen auras first hand.
First off all people have an aura though to different degrees or intensity.
Watch most babies 1 to 2 years old... There might be ten babies in a large room.
When someone comes into the room who has a strong aura, they will probably get the attention of most every babys eyes in the room.
And the babys attention will be locked onto that person for some time.
The babys are definately seeing something and I speculate that it is that persons aura.
Being able to do something and proving it aren't the same thing. You'd have to have someone else who has already proven that they could do it in order to verify. But then that puts out the question, how are you going to verify the first person to get the process started?
Here's the thing, the forum concerns auras. Some people find the intangible, tangible. That simple. Some don't. The fact that some can't is not the problem of those who can. I need no proof, and for those who can't perceive the intangible, it is like trying to describe a color to a blind person. You'll know it if you see it, because it will be as plain as the nose on your face. Try focusing your gaze beyond the end of it helps (The end of your nose that is.)
Oh trust me, I understand exactly what your saying. I know of Auras as I'm sure that it's what I see. However asking me to prove it is another matter altogether. There is no verifiable way (currently) to even attempt proving Auras. That is one of the reason they are under much debate.
It just makes sense to me but I'm more open minded and curious than most. Even without that, anyone with some common sense could get behind the premise that heat and energy are visible under certain conditions.
Druid jested about focusing beyond the end but focusing beyond the end of what is common knowledge is where all the new stuff is. What we know today was not known 500 years ago (in some subjects) and was looked upon as heresy and lunacy.
It's often best to keep to oneself on certain matters and put your energy out where it will do the most good.
andy - you may be talking about halos, not auras.
IMHO they may be different from religious point of view... but if you want to analyze the reasons of their occurrence... the difference seems insignificant. Both of them are organ disorders of people who experience them.
Ya can't prove nuttin to anyone that don't want to believe it.
They have to experience it AND Then all their buddies will think they have gone bunkers.
That's the way it is, and we can't even prove this to the doubting mind.
You may be correct. I know one lady who claims she can see farts! They don't have any way to test for this either.
and I know another woman who says that she can't smell her farts.
She may be telling the truth? but I wouldn't be, if I said that I didn't smell her farts.
But can you see them? They're a form of energy, Ya know! Druid Dude says it's possible!
Well ... Hers ? no I can't see them cause my eyelids are usually stuck together until after the energy has left the building.
I believe you have to have special glasses! Poot-A-Viewers I think they're called!
I believe people can see other peoples ora.
It all has to do with health and well being.
Every cell in your body has its own electromagnetic field and frequency.
If you are healthy it is because these diffrent pulses and frequencies are working in unison.
How many times have you heard someone ask someome else "Are You pregnant"
And that person say "Yes how did you know?"
Answer .... "You have a different glow about your face"
There are scientific studies about the pulse and frequencies of a new born babys blood cells.
It was their belief that this is at the center of our imune systems success or lack there of. And contributes to our pain tolerance level.
I was a subject in one where they built an electromagnetic generator which simulated this. My blood was recalibrated back to something close to what it was at birth. I felt 20 years younger and my chronic pain went away.
Everything that we take into our body affects the electromagnetic field of every molecule in our body.
And No; this field is not contained within the perimeter of our skin.
I wish I knew where they are at today.
I'd love to have some more of it.
Cool!!! I have never heard of anything like that before. But I truly believe that we are more than what is just simply tangible.
Tangibility isn't always simple. But just for the heck of it, of what use would being able to see auras be? I mean, being able to see farts would certainly be a useful ability to possess!
Oras come in different colors depending upon the pulses and frequencies going on in our body.
Diagnosis of medical conditions would be one benefit.
Like when you look at a tomato plant and know that it isn't healthy.
Not the same thing. But it can be that obvious to those that can see an ora and knows how to read it.
Wow! You are smart, Jerami! About farts, I mean, not auras. At least you know how to spell "farts" correctly! Just kidding you, I hope you know!
Jerami - exactly right. The physical (and I believe possibly mental) condition of a person is visible through the color of their aura. Any skeptic can take a quick look at brain scans of those without the proper neurotransmitter material and see that the color changes upon introduction of those neurotransmitters. There's no reason we can't extrapolate on that and come to the conclusion that the energy transmission of humans moves beyond the outer surface of the skin.
Give it up rudnes. Seeing human gas would only be of use to you. I am far more complicated and obviously advanced as a human than you could evere comprehend. Good night time to sleep and leave you behind.
Due to my eperience I am a firm believer in the fact that our power is in the blood.
I also believe that this is THE reason for many of the dietary laws in the OT.
Daniel refused to eat from the kings table because he knew that to do so would greatly demish his spiritual abilities.
I know I didn't express what I'm trying to say very well; but you get the idea?
I tried finding those studies and found nothing of the sort. Do you have a link?
Well !! That is just one of those things where I know, I did something that I absolutely can not prove to another human being!
I was just feeling so good about feeling as good as I did. That I didn't think about keeping records, sinse I was just a subject in the study.
And maybe these people were the only ones in the whole scientific community that was looking into this concept.
I was just telling about a time in my life. ?
Auras exist if you believe so... in reality they're results of kind of disorders related to eye or brain. That said, when you experience it... it actually happens to you... no matter how you want to interpret it.
Smelling Farts, how rude. grow up. I know several people that cannot smell for one reason or another. Try again.
when our frequencys are all out of balance we are out of tune with the universe around us .... and we loose reception.
Just cause the reciever is broken doesn't mean that the radio station doesn't exist.
She's about your speed. Have you been dating long? A cop's gut feeling. The sensation you are being watched, and you find that you are being watched. Trying to explain the intangible to those who are unable to perceive it is like trying to explain a color to someone blind from birth. Above, the discussion was turned toward divining which a non-believer in the intangible was convinced wasn't on the same order as auras. The root word of divining is DIVINE. The original diviners were called water witches, it was considered a spiritual thing. Diviners were also called upon to forecast future events.
It is nice good to hear that.
And is there anything about that; that you would like to share with us?
Sometimes auras happen to people who have epilepsy right before they have a seizure. That is true. It is the first part of the seizure. Sorry to take the spiritual side out of this forum, but auras are part of the seizure.
So, If an aura becomes visable upon having a seasure
It doesn't seem unreasonable that there are other reasons for this reaction to occure where it becomes visable.
I think one should keep an open mind about such things and above all not be disrespectful. People don't have to believe anything they don't want to, but they also don't have the right to ridicule others for their beliefs. Unfortunately, ridicule and disrespect for the opinions and beliefs of others is soemthing I see all to often in these forums.
I am sorry, I did not mean any disrespect.
Disturbia - and it's always the same people. Best just to not respond to them. (It's not you, Michele).
No, Michele, I wasn't addressing you, and couturepopcafe is correct, it always seems to be the same few. The ridicule and disrespect just get under my skin. It must go back to my childhood when I was the target of many bullies. To me it's childish and unacceptable behavior from adults.
What is really childish and unacceptable behavior from adults is the propagation of nonsense from irrational beliefs. I don't suspect that's what you were doing as a child when you were the target of bullies, and that is not what anyone is doing here, either. Bullies do not use science and reality to argue against nonsense and irrational beliefs. And, if grown adults expect to earn respect, they probably shouldn't be propagating nonsense and irrational beliefs as science and reality, which only shows a very deep disrespect for those who understand it.
Well, i think you are a very reasonable person but i have to disagree with you on this one, as long as we keep the "internet etiquette" and the forum rules we should challenge and debate subjects that are nonsense, like auras, this kind of subjects are not free from mockery like any other irrational belief like religion, pseudoscience, conspiracy theories, myths, or any thing like this...
Hi Shawn May Scott, since I was a young girl I could see a glow surrounding people, and still do, I have also had some very strange experiences through out my life though. However I have heard several people refer to this glow as an aura. I happen to have a very open mind though so I tend to look into what is put before me instead of just dismissing it without thought.
You should get checked out by a doctor, perhaps your condition can be treated.
For a guy with a strong blue aura, you may want to rethink your position.
A Troubled Man, not sure what condition you are talking about, unless it be the fact that I have an open mind, and in that case I think you are mistaken, as it is an open mind that is free to explore and learn to no limit, where as a closed mind is a controlled mind and is only able to learn what is allowed.
The medical condition you're having that causes you to see auras, of course.
No, an open mind would understand that is a medical condition and wouldn't jump to conclusions that it is something that surrounds people.
Hi A Troubled Man, if you will notice I never said I saw auras, I said I see a glow around people, I have not jumped to any conclusion, I simply gather the facts and lay them out, I do not lable. I have also had some kind of near death experience/premonition and dreams of people and situations that I did not know but would meet and deal with later on in my life since I was 3, so is that a medical condition?
Then, you should probably get that checked out by a physician.
Could be, but more likely just a delusion.
I've had MRI's EEG's and such, which have all come out perfectly normal, so I actually have been checked out.
Simply put, A Troubled Man, you just need to learn to open your mind and realize that there are things that just have not been able to be explained by science yet.
Yeah, sure you have.
Yes, delusion can be explained by science.
It does not matter to me whether you believe me, as I am the one with hospital records to prove.
But yes, A Troubled Man, your delusion can be explained by science so there's no need to worry just go and get yourself checked out. Though I suggest you don't take any of those psychoactive medications - find something natural to help with your delusions instead.
I seemed to have opened a can of worms here. Auras or what ever you want to call them are there and may not be seen by everyone. Many in this discussion have mentioned that people like us are "special" under our own thoughts. Disbelievers are everywhere and just because they cannot hold it in there hands or see it with their eyes they think it does not exsist. Yes many people who have seizures, migraines etc. see auras before the on set of the physical activity their bodies are about to endure. But there are some perfectly healthy people that can see auras and have been able to all of their lives. Just because we are different does not make us wrong. I understand you. Don't let these school yard bullies concern you they all fear what they cannot control.
Yeah, Shawn May Scott, I'd say you did open a can of worms as I did read all the comments before posting this. I wanted to provide a clearer explanation as to the aura that seizures cause (I grew up with an epileptic mother who has seizures of every type, and know a lot about seizures). The aura that a seizure causes is not seen - it is felt, as a warning to the person who has seizures that they are about to experience a seizure, when the person who has seizures learns to pay attention to that feeling they can prepare themselves for a seizure which can result in less harm caused by the seizure.
Hilarious. Others are trying to help you learn something about reality and you call them school yard bullies simply because you really, really really want to believe you're "different"
No, we don't fear your childish fantasies.
As all humans are obviously electrical beings, we must all emit something of some sorts, whether visible or not. The paranormal version of "aura" definitely falls under spiritual insight and most folks would simply label it as woo-woo wishful thinking of an occult nature, and be done with the kooky notion. However, if it is possible to "see" someone's aura, phenomenal clairvoyance needs to be applied.
Clairvoyance seems to me like having insight into something. People can only read what others have written to try and have some insight. I don't pretend to know what it is I see, it could simply be electrical discharge as I see it on more than just living and sentient things. I don't assume to have insight on it though, I simply know what I see.

So I borrowed this idea from Misha to start a new thread.For me, I can give one particular instance where I think science and religion/spirituality are complementary, as crossing each other's boundaries. When I think of energy; where Kirlian photography has proven the existence of the energy...

can i really see auras?i was told last night i have a gift and a pure white aura and tried to see it as per instructions on th "how to c auras" page i definitly seen something and am freaked out!!

If AURA exists, how does it help us?
