It has been my experience that many gifted aura readers cannot see them at all. Rather, they sense them.
Just as we have physical senses, we have astral senses which allow us to see onto the astral plane. During the seance of the late 19th Century, one of the signs of contact with the spirit world was the sound of spirit bells. This indicated that the astral hearing sense was open. Similarly, if the astral vision is open, one can see auras (among other things).
However, here is a basic method to see auras.
Obtain 1 piece of 8.5 x 11 black construction paper
Obtain 1 poster-size piece of black cardboard
Obtain 1 friend who wants to help
Obtain 1 desktop lamp
Experiment 1: seeing your own aura:
Dim the lights so you can see, but so there are no bright lights in the room. Candlelight is often ideal.
Hold the black construction paper in one hand.
Hold your other hand, with fingers spread, an inch or two in front of the piece of black paper.
Allow your vision to soften, that is, dont try to focus on anything.
Slowly move your hand a bit closer, or a bit further away.
In a short time you should be able to see a golden or greyish glow around your fingers and hand.
This is the physical aspect of the aura. With practice, this glow will expand. That is, you will see more of the aura, including colors.
Experiment 2: seeing the aura of another:
Put the lamp with a very small bulb on a small table.
Put the poster at the edge of the table. A small stand for the poster can help.
Have your victim er friend stand or sit in front of the poster. His or her head should be centered in front of the poster, although you can set it up so that the person is closer to the top and their shoulders are in front of the poster as well as their head. Leave at least a few inches of poster above your subjects head.
Turn off all of the room lights. Turn on the light behind the poster.
Look at the person. Soften your focus as in experiment one. Some people describe this as looking beyond the subject.
Once again, you should be able to see the physical aura fairly rapidly. With practice, this can expand to other layers of the aura, including the more colorful ones.
One you have succeeded with these experiments, try the technique in a dimly-lit room but without the black backgrounds. Later, move on to more brightly-lit rooms.
