Want to learn how to see Auras from a realistic/practical point of view?

I rarely advertise or post much in the realm of 'energy' related topics. But since NLP courses are often attended by people interested in all manner of alternative things, I'm occasionally asked about this one. "Can you see auras?"

And in my case, I definitely see them, and can teach anyone to see them in minutes. Easy Peasy. What I don't see well are colors. Occasionally, if the background is really neutral, and the colors are supposedly really strong, then I pick them up as weak colors. Color distinctions have to be what most aura readers would describe as dramatic, for me to see any color at all.

I can also feel auras, sometimes barely, sometimes amazingly well, when/if my Kinesthetics are in a heightened awareness state. This is most of the time, but not after meals. Feldenkrais found himself and his students experienced the same drain in kinesthetic self-awareness and lowered K acuity during digestion, so I'm in reasonable company there.

Here's a simple, less-esoteric way of understanding & teaching auras. Just my opinion here:

We are all electrochemical beings. Our nervous systems are electric. All electric currents are surrounded by a magnetic field. Magnetic fields affect the alignment of molecules and particles in the air. When particles in the air align differently, LIGHT passes through those 'modified' spaces differently than it passes through space not modified by those magnetic fields. We see that light reflecting differently off of 'affected particles' in the air.

I see auras, quite simply, as a change in the quality of light, passing through the air inside our human magnetic fields. There is no vaccuum inside that space -- there is air, with dust, with ions, with various particles.... and that air appears different to us through that field.

How I train people to see auras:

What I do is... I have a person stand against a flat background. I have everyone I'm teaching the skill to -- stand in front of them, staring at their nose for ~1 minute. Then, I have the person against the background step to the side, but have everyone else continue to stare at where the person's nose WAS, before they step aside.

What everyone can then see, is an outline of a person around where the person used to be. That's the retinal imprint of the contrasting image.

However, in our peripheral vision, as we continue to stare at the location where the person used to be, we can still see a retinal imprint AROUND the person off to the side. That is the aura. And most people ignore auras even though they're seeing them already, because they look a lot like the retinal imprint we get when we dart our eyes around a person's face (making their "outline" against the background bigger than their body/head).

So my contention is, everyone sees auras already, all the time. The trick is to get people to create a finer set of distinctions between the actual aura, and an actual retinal imprint (since they often look the same in our eyes), and then get them to stop ignoring the actual aura.

And hey, I could also be wrong. :)
