My eyes were soft-focused and relaxed, and then I saw Arin's aura - in color! I only saw the first layer, but a fuzzy cloud of royal blue encircled her profile, and there was no doubt about it! It wasn't faint, or doubtable - it was there, and I saw it! When she turned to look at me, it disappeared as I focused on her face. But when she turned and looked back at the computer, I could see it again. It's the first time I've really seen an auric layer in color. Blue makes sense too, as she is very expressive and verbal.
Yesterday afternoon I tried to see my middle daughter and son's auras as they sat in the same spot at the computer, but I couldn't get the same results. I tried again last night after the kids were in bed, this time trying to see my husband, Evan's aura as he did yoga while I was sending Reiki. I could get the first etheric layer, but it was colorless or a very light shade of yellow...nothing like the brightness I saw around Arin.
I was hoping that once I saw Arin's aura it meant I now have the ability to tune in whenever I try. But it seems as if it's the beginning of the process, and I have to keep up with the practice to have any consistency with it.
Still....it's nice progress and I'm grateful for the new discoveries in my intuitive development.
