In chemistry, something is said to be auric when it contains traces of gold; in the paranormal, aura is an energy field that surrounds all living things.

Want to see the aura? Soft light is the best condition in which to see the aura. It also helps to be relaxed, so bed is the best place to get auric.

1. Turn off the lights, but let light filter through the curtains or leave the hall light on and close the bedroom door.

2. As you lie in bed, hold your hands straight out in front of you. Look gently--gaze, don't stare. The aura rarely appears as a bright light, it is more like a gentle heat haze.

3. Fix your attention on your hands while focusing your eyes on the bedroom wall. Your hands will appear out of focus.

4. Slowly bring your fingertips towards each other until they are very close but not touching. The aura will appear as fine lines of blue and red light between the finger tips.

5. As you draw your hands apart you will see the streams of energy connecting each finger. Imagine the energy increasing and you will see the light glow brightly. Again, bring them close together. The flow increases, as with magnets: you feel the attraction
