    Have you tried seeing auras of specific objects?

    I tried to concentrate at a red circle, and shades of blue appeared at the outlines of the circle. Looking at it longer, it seem to have grewn bigger.

    Share your experiences here!

    Edit: Talk about any and all optical illusions that interest you, and discuss all the other interesting things your brain does to play tricks on you.

    According to my sources, they are spiritually advanced people.

    I've been noticing that black things have white auras.

    @Rave: They're not witchcraft. Scientifically, I believe the colors emmited by specific colors are the opposite of the rainbow spectrum.

    I rarely get out of my house.

    All you need is concentration and patience.

    @Competition: It COULD be real.

    From what I can recall, it came from Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z. WAY before Pokemon. But it's believed people can feel their chi in a spiritual sense.

    Also, no, you can't see chi. You can somewhat feel it if you undergo spiritual training. If you see it, you're just obsessed and it's all in your head.

    ...You guys are aware that staring at a colored object for long periods of time will "trick" your mind into seeing the color that is opposite of it (on the color wheel) on the edges of said object?
    Little trick we used to do in 7th grade for the hell of it.

    Sorry, kids, you aren't magical.
    Keep trying, though.

    If aura exists it is not visible because it is not a visual phenomenon. Why should it be? Also, staring at something long enough expecting to see something will 99% result in you inducing hallucinations upon yourself. You can make yourself see (or vice-versa) what you want to see. It's probably that. Again i doubt aura is "visible". I think its more like..um...a feeling, since isn't that exactly what an aura is...and envelope of emotion and thought?

    This is more like those optical illusions like when you stare at the black thing with the white backround, then look at a piece of paper only to see the object again.

    Aura is a force emitted by all living things, a semi-electrical field due to the interactions in the body. Whether you believe its the soul, most Eastern and some western religions have documented it; what you saw, I'm afraid was an afterimage, not an aura. Auras aren't always the opposite colour of the object it surrounds...
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qi
    It is related to Qi/Chi/Ki the life force, and to the chakra in Indian mythology. Whether it is real I can't tell you, having never seen it.

    THE POWER OF AURA ROCKS!

    people have alife energcy called aura right?

    1. that does not mean it does anything with magic.

    2. the aura are peoples souls the brighter, the more life within them they have

    i've stared at people and heres what i see:

    white- the purest only angles have this color aura
    redish-orangeish you have lived a verry gracefull life not the purest but not the evilist
    purpleish- normal
    purple-bluish you have delt with a lot of things in your life
    blackish- YOU ARE EVIL!

    notes;

    - the more damage you take in battle,the more powerfull your aurasphere is (for those who can actulay use aura sphere)

    - currently only 8 pokemon can actulay use the power of aura

    AND IT DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH MAGIC! UNLESS YOUR SOUL IS MAGIC and you don't believe in your soul which means you don't believe in god...

    and thats my report on auras

    Exactly.

    Look intensely at a magenta circle on a page, and count to 30. Move your eyes away from the circle, and it seems to have a bright green 'aura' around it. It's a cool trick in 7th grade, but there's no way it applies to actual reality.
