What? A distinctive but intangible quality that seems to surround a person or thing; atmostphere
What I am attempting to present is something I tried and accomplished with mixed results. I wanted to know if auras were tangible in the visual
context. So. I visited libraries and book stores searching for literature and documentation about the elusive quality everyone might have, yet,
I located a website that had an oddball approach to aura detection and training to see auras. And, once I read the material, I struck out on my own
avenue to try different directions of focus. Meaning? I learned to throw my focus out when I wanted to 'not see' anything. It was like an empty
thought. Excellent to be until someone wants your attention and forces you to focus once again.
If I wanted to do any experimentation, I had to be alone and in a quiet, non-distracting area. I set up a mirror that would allow me to see my entire
face. Placed a subdued light near the mirror outside my focus. Took an ink pen and marked a small dot where the 3rd eye is on my forehead. Then,
by relaxing, I was able to unfocus my field of vision and see the shadow of my silhouette. Like a negative negative. If that makes any sense. But,
you have to adjust to not blinking nearly as much as your normal amount. Until you become acclimated to unfocusing, blinking will make you focus. It
reminds me of trying to stop a sneeze. Sometimes you can, sometimes it's pointless.
The main point I am getting to is, I found something else while coaxing my mind into doing things that it wasn't accustomed to. The unfocusing was
time consuming to learn. Eyes tire easily especially when they want to do what they have always done. Focus.
What I learned was during my excitement in realizing I can perceive something outside the norm, I could see other things. Faces on top of faces on
top of my face. Monochrome. (no mind altering substances involved)
Here is the oddball site I mentioned earlier. Should you be curious to attempt, I made a poster of the red and blue balls with the black dot in the
middle to practice with. Eventually, it became automatic. Similar to seeing images in stereograms.
Be kind. This subject is noted throughout history, yet, never quantified. I write this for fun, not critical thinking.
I am skipping any spiritual aspect until someone can show me a spirit. Fair enough?
The faces were trippy enough. =D
Found this thread mentioning how oddball the site is. Dated 2003.
If you are curious how I did it, ask. I believe everyone can do this.
