! Since posting about auras, I feel I must put up a kind of - not warning, but...
If you go to a psychic, a psychic fair or party, or someone you don’t yet know but who was recommended, say, by a friend - remember that not all psychics are equally skilled.
Use your personal intuition about any reading you get from another person. Use your discernment. If it feels right, and you and the psychic strike a chord together, fine. But if you feel the slightest inkling of discomfort or even a physical signal like an upset stomach or headache, that means that this particular psychic is not the one for you.
Different people resonate differently with different psychics.
Don’t be embarrassed if, as the reading begins, you realize it’s not for you, and you need to get up and leave. It’s okay to do that.
If all else checks out and you decide to get your psychic reading, here are some things to be aware of:
If you‘re getting a reading in a crowded place, such as a Psychic Fair, take the reading with a light heart. A crowded venue means there is a lot of energy there, from many people. It’s highly likely that others’ energies could intrude on your reading, making it less accurate.
Before going into a private reading (or any spiritual activity), remember to protect yourself from unwanted energies. I usually say the Lord’s Prayer, but you can put a bubble of White Light around you, or you can even visualize Captain Kirk saying “Shields UP!” I do that sometimes. Anything that has meaning for you will work. The best protection we can all have - whether we‘re getting a reading or just going to the supermarket - is to carry love and compassion in our hearts.
Keep your own self centered during a reading. That means, don’t get into your dramas, don’t let your emotions run away with you (because emotions are notoriously drama-oriented, and therefore inaccurate), and don’t drink or smoke or anything like that. Go into the reading with love in your heart.
To sum up, you‘re always safer and probably more accurate, if you can see your own aura, and get your own psychic information (through intuition, dreams, journaling). But if you go to a psychic for a reading, remember that their words are not written in stone. Edgar Cayce, one of America’s most gifted and documented psychics, said his readings were correct about 80% of the time.
! Being able to interpret the colors you see in auras is extremely valuable. Say I’m at work, and a co-worker is standing at the coffee machine. I see that her aura is blood-red, so I decide to be very gentle when talking to her over the next few days - it looks like she might have some rage in there.
We talked about how to see auras - but what do the colors mean, once we can see them?
According to James Van Praagh (a co-producer for Ghost Whisperer , and a medium) - and Edgar Cayce (a gifted psychic who helped heal hundreds of people), here’s what to look for in an aura.
A healthy aura is pretty to look at, and the colors are often layered. You might see swirls of color in part or all of the aura. According to the Cayce people, each person’s aura is as unique as a fingerprint. Also, a person’s aura is constantly changing - sometimes in subtle ways, sometimes dramatically. Your aura changes depending on your health, your mental, emotional and spiritual disposition, and even your thoughts!
To interpret the colors and shapes you see takes lots of practice. And it’s not just the color that has meaning, but also the subtle shade of that color. An aquamarine blue has a different meaning than a sapphire blue. So use these guidelines as generalities.
If you see GOLD around a person, it's a good bet that he or she has a firm spiritual base. PURPLE might indicate womanly energy, also with lots of spirituality. GREEN , like all the colors, has many meanings, but one of the most common connections to green is health and healing. ORANGE is also a "health" color, plus it shows up around creative people. RED - lots of it, and bright - can alert you to someone who has anger issues. A slightly more SUBDUED RED could indicate a passionate love of life. PINK - ah, pink, my favorite color - shows up when there's lots of feminine energy and soft nurturing going on. When you see someone with lots of YELLOW , that might be because the person reads a lot, is highly intelligent, and loves learning.

! I’ve noticed that many people can learn to see auras. Our own, and others‘. I took a course that included aura-reading, and it wasn’t that hard. Once you get the hang of it, you can see them at will, whenever you want.
To see your own aura, stand in front of a mirror. Make sure that behind you is a neutral color. White is good. No patterns. Now - you‘re relaxed, but stand still. Look at your face and shoulders. Keep looking. Let your eyes relax. The eyes don’t go out of focus exactly, it’s more like you‘re looking past your image.
In a very short time, you will see a thin, bright, white light around you, close to your body (like maybe half an inch out from the body), and following the shape of your head and neck. This is not your aura. Quite honestly, I have no idea what it is. But once you can see that, keep looking because I’ve found that within a few seconds to a minute, I’ll start to see light that’s not so closer to the body. This light can extend quite a way out from the body, and it’s not necessarily symmetrical. You might see more light on the right side of your body, for instance. Keep looking, and you’ll see colors in this light. It’s really awesome.
The next step is to try this looking at someone else. Find a friend who doesn't mind being stared at! Tell him or her that you're practicing seeing auras, and that they might have to sit there for some time, while you stare at them weirdly. Make sure they're sitting in front of a neutral color background. Both of you should be sitting to avoid fatigue, and to encourage relaxation. No talking. Now just stare at your friend, especially around his or her head or shoulders.
After a few seconds, you’ll see their sticky white light (don’t confuse this with The White Light, because they‘re not the same thing), and then when you keep looking (yes, you can blink but not too much), you will eventually see a bigger light around your friend and then you’ll start to see colors in it!
The whole thing is way cool, and if it takes you longer to get the hang of it, I totally think it’s worth it.
And you can bet, none of the colors in your aura have been tested on animals! Weird seguay? Oh well. To see my list of over 350 cosmetics companies that do not do animal testing click [Link Removed]
Even if you only remember snippets from your dreams, they could contain invaluable information for you.
I’ve been keeping a dream journal since I could write, and some of the stuff, when I go over it, just blows me away.
Here’s the latest. I’ve been working on personal boundaries, because I tend to be “too sensitive.” I take on other people’s stuff too much, and sometimes it’s just too much.
So the other night, I dreamed I went through the car wash. I mean me - without the car!
I took it to mean that I needed to re-visit my personal boundary work and clean off some of the unnecessary “debris” I was carrying from latching on to other people’s problems too much.
It was great advice, and a wonderful reminder for me.
Often I have a the same dream about having to do tons of sweeping and floor polishing.
That one always makes me think I need to journal about how “clean” (clear?) I’m keeping my life’s foundation (the floor, for me, is the foundation). It’s a reminder to hit the journal and write it out until I get the current issue cleared up.
The main thing we need to remember in dream interpretation is that our symbols are personal to each of us. Don’t buy those big dream symbol books, because they‘re too general. For instance, if I dream of a cat, I’m dreaming about love and innocence. If my friend J. dreams about a cat, he’s probably dreaming about feeling claustrophic and sick, since he’s allergic to them.
I’d love to hear about ways you guys interpret your dreams.
!(image description)!Yes yes yes! We CAN do something. Each of us. We can volunteer or donate to our favorite animal rescue organizations.
Here are some groups that are in place and already saving pelicans, dolphins, sea turtles, and baby birds:
(They do not do any research that harms birds.)
The owls and the porpoises thank you!
I belong to any number of national and international groups, and basically I just send them money when I have it. World Wildlife Fund, Amnesty International, US Humane Society, you name it.
And these groups are great. They have a VOICE. They have lobbyists. They get important and newsworthy things fixed in our world. I’ll never give them up.
But there’s another type of group I’m noticing: grassroots action groups. In my own town, we have “Pets Alive,” because we‘re in the process of going 100% no-kill in our animal shelters. We also have, as most towns do, Meals on Wheels. There are all kinds of safe-houses for women and children that are private and local.
I’m noticing that these smaller groups are getting a lot accomplished, too. As much as the big groups, these grassroots, accessible groups are helping to bring safety, kindness, and care to the people and animals of individual communities.
I’ve volunteered locally for the blind community, and I am thinking about offering some time to “Pets Alive.”
And yes, they need money too! I have my special [Link Removed] group that is trying to keep up with all the homeless donkeys and burros, but is desperate for money. They make a huge difference in our world.
Many therapists and self-help gurus have said: If you‘re depressed, if you‘re caught in a rut, if you‘re between jobs, if you find you‘re angry all the time, if you watch too much TV - why not find a grassroots cause and see what you can do to help? Regularly helping others, say some therapists, can give us just as much of an emotional boost, as medication!
So. There’s a lot going on out there. But we don’t have to feel helpless anymore. We can find a grassroots group in our area, a group that shares our personal concerns, and pitch in a little bit.
There’s power on a local level. We need only tap into it! We can make a difference.!(image description)!
