How to Feel the Human Aura
- While sitting in a comfortable upright position, close your eyes and begin to breathe deeply. Begin to relax and let go of your shoulders with each exhale. Do this for three exhales. While doing this, clear your mind and let go of any thoughts or tensions in your body.
- Keep your eyes closed and hold your hands out in front of you, approximately 12 inches apart, palms facing each other. Hold your hands still. Relax and begin taking deep breaths, breathing through your belly. Keeping your eyes closed, begin to watch your hands “from inside”. Watch the energy between your hands build up in this way for approximately 2-5 minutes.
- Still keeping your eyes closed, slowly move your hands towards each other. Notice the space between them. Can you feel the energy field between
your hands? Become aware of this energy field, and you will feel resistance. With youreyes still closed, experiment with the space between your hands. Move yourhands closer together, then further apart. Notice the different sensationsas you do this. You might feel something similar to static electricity, or maybe tingling pressure or tickling sensation.

Everything that is alive pulsates with energy. Practitioners of complementary medicine, as well as physicists, acknowledge the existence of an electromagnetic field generated by the body’s biological processes. This energy field surrounding the physical body extends as far out as your outstretched arms and the full length of your body. It contains information and is a highly sensitive, perceptive system. Through this system, we are constantly in communication with everything around us and we transmit to, and receive messages from, other peoples bodies as well.
