During my reading with a psychic, I asked if I’m on the correct spiritual path. Recently, I began incorporating Tibetan meditation into my daily Nichiren Buddhist chanting routine. Having been raised Jewish, these different practices were causing a bit of confusion amid the mental clarity I’ve been experiencing. Oh the irony!
But I simply wanted to know if I’m headed in the right direction. Or would I pick up another spiritual practice? Sufism crossed my mind…briefly.
She chuckled, and in her fabulous Scottish accent she beamed, “You’re on the right path. You’re right where you need to be.” Then she asked, “Do you know what color your aura is? Have you seen it?” Suffice it to say, I haven’t. I was intrigued. I’d had many psychic readings over the years and none have asked me this.
For those unfamiliar, an aura is an energy field that surrounds living beings. People who can see auras believe that the aura colors represent different things, and to be able to see them helps us manipulate these energy fields positively. You don’t need to be psychic or especially gifted to see them, either. You can train yourself to do it, and with practice, you can see your energy field’s color.
Also, our aura is a spiritual signature of sorts. When a person shines brightly, it’s probably because they are spiritually advanced. Like the Dalai Lama. He’s got this nifty glow.
But how can we see ours? She explains, “Go to your bathroom mirror and relax. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Light a candle in the distance. Open your eyes and look at your reflection in the mirror. Let them un-focus, then re-focus again. Don’t look directly at yourself. Then, you’ll see a glowing light around you.”
I tried and I didn’t see a color, per se. But practically speaking, it was my first try, so I didn’t expect to see anything – at all. The psychic said it might take practice. I attempted it again, and thought I saw a light blue hue.
She also let me know I might have another unexplored skill: Reading Tarot cards. “Just buy a deck, and start. Even if you don’t know the meanings yet, try, dear,” Roxy said.
I think I will. Anyone else read their own aura? Any amateur Tarot card readers out there?
