    True, we might suck at social interactions, but we are still good at spotting stuff in others. Or maybe I have just been balanced for too long. Hehe.

    Haha, and that response is very classy, I agree, yes.

    Hm, and I must say, you seem to be very much into aura-reading. Your questions seem to never end. Not that it's something bad or so. Just noticed.
    Sorry I can't be of too much help though. I guess I am not too fond of exposing myself or friends.

    I dont associate what I do with people as 'reading auras'... but I find that very often when I meet someone new, I can barely remember the words of our conversation, but I remember very distinctly the FEELING I had when we were talking. Kind of like... recognizing the soul of the person rather than the body... its hard to describe. I get 'good' feelings from people, 'bad' feelings from people...and a couple of times I've done an about face and walked away from someone I met on the street who looked otherwise normal and nice but I got a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach.

    One of those times was a woman walking on the sidewalk who tried to talk to me, and even my dog didn't like her. My dog is friendly as all get-out but she was growling and had her hair raised at this woman. Not sure if the dog sensed MY tension and was reacting to that, or if she sensed what I sensed in the woman.

    I don't see 'colors' or get concrete words to associate with the person, and it doesn't happen all the time. I've always just considered it my gut instinct and the only times I tend to find trouble are when I ignore it.
    Embrace the possibilities.

    Let me bring this thread back up.

    I have a question for others that I will ask and then explain later, after I blab a bit first. I recently started re-reading a translation of Karma Chagme's Naked Awareness: Practical Instructions on the Union of Dzogchen and Mahamudra. I didn't get more than like 3 lines into it before being reminded that the Vajrayana [ie Tibetan Buddhism] is quite possibly the most esoteric/occult religion in existence. Sure, Taoism has its moments, and some of the subsets of Hinduism utterly ooze it out too, but man hands down it seems like the Tibetans have it everywhere. Wanna have your thoughts on reincarnations challenged: sure Taoism has made references [Bruce Kumar Frantzis in particular comes to mind] to each person's embodiment involves a collection of spirits/shen, which did their own things before your physical birth, and will go their own separate ways after your physical death [so much for the thought that you have/are one soul that keeps coming back and evolving], but man look at the Vajrayana and they have stories of their people's souls splitting into say 7 pieces that each reincarnate in different bodies at the same time, and then start re-merging later on down the road in incarnations after that. So and so is the "wisdom reincarnation" of some other so and so. Other person is the "karuna reincarnation" of some other person. Yes, very interesting. So and so was reborn as the reincarnation of the famous so and so, and at the age of three had clairvoyant visions of hidden scrolls [terma] and then at the age of 10 translated such and such famous work on such and such advanced esoteric topic, and before they died they made predictions of where and under what conditions they would next be reborn, and then at the predicted time others went to the predicted spot and found said predicted reincarnation. Oh, by the way, Mahamudra and Dzogchen are super-advanced meditation practices that basically take one from one level of enlightenment to another. That's right, levels of enlightenment. See what I mean about esoteric? Other traditions recognise those two levels of enlightenment [formless, non-dual] as well. Paraphrasing Ken Wilber, "I am not aware of any evidence anywhere in any of the great wisdom traditions of the world that point to any states beyond the non-dual."

    Anyways, enough side-babbling and onto my question. For people trained to deal with psychic energies, what would you think of the idea of intentionally sucking in people's suffering/negative stuff, while giving away your own positive stuff??? "Visualize black acrid smoke that is others confusion, pain, suffering, illness, worry, anxiety, etc, and breath this into yourself. Keep doing this for a while. Then visualize your love, your warmth, your compassion, your caring, your peace, and now give that away to others. Keep doing that for a while."

    Does this sound like a definition of stupidity? Don't people usually try to block/NOT acquire others negativities/junk? Don't people usually try to hold onto their positive qualities and not just send them "out there" where whoever can "take them" or whatever? If you did do the above, should one not then have your aura/self filled with other people's junk? Do you lose some of your warmth/caring by openly giving it away/sending it to all others?

    Thoughts? Responses? I ask this for a reason. I wanna get some feedback first then I'll explain.

    I wouldn't consider myself trained, but I used to do that, to ease their pain. The thing is that doing so does take away their pain somewhat, but it doesn't cure the cause. On the other hand, I couldnt' live with myself if I wouldn't be sensitive to their subconscious cries for help. But yes, it drains you and leaves you completely tired, sad and in serious need of recharging. Worse is even when they don't give you that break.

    Over time, I developped a barrier. Stopped sharing as much of myself, both in emotional terms as in informational terms. I learned to not get swept up in it, and that they didn't need me to invest myself completely to get the same result. I still get drained, but then someone has to be intensely hurting, or I have to be helping out several people at once. As I don't always notice it, my SO will tap me on the shoulder if I go overboard. I don't feel drained and empty as often anymore though, coz I've got a small barrier there nowadays. But it takes time and experience to figure out how thick you want it, how high it should be in order to remain sensitive and helpfull yet not drown in it yourself.

    Also, I learned to mostly inspire them and stimulate their confidence to deal with whatever it was that was causing them to feel this way. Again, you can take away the pain but there's no point if you don't take away the cause. As we say in Dutch, it's like mopping up the water while the tap is kept open.

    I can't read auras or anything like that but I would be curious to try aura reading at some point just to see what they say. I'm not sure if I'm willing to pay for it so it might be that my aura will never be read.

    We might run into a terminology issue here: Do you all train to deal with levels of existence "more subtle" than the "spirit world"/astral plane? Also, how about what I would call "subtle bodies", subtler than say, the astral, or mental, or "psychic" body? I might have asked that earlier in this thread. I tend to hate saying "psychic body" because some systems use that term [B K Frantzis for example], and others don't. Sometimes I say "psychic body" as a quick substitute for "your deeper subtle bodies that reincarnate with you" and other times I simply mean Frantzis's layer that he calls "the psychic body". So many systems, so many terminologies! and they don't necessarily overlap/agree!!! Would you all train to emanate out of "subtle bodies" subtler than the astral body, for example?

    I've met people whop will briefly describe yours without charging you. Usually, they were my friends, or I was at an informational session [I don't remember if that was free or some nominal charge though].

    I don't know what your interest level, but if you can find someone that is really good I'd say its worth paying the money. IME, when people do "healings", they are almost certainly sensing parts of your aura, and can describe that to you if you wish. Those are often more detailed and not as, umm, flattering though. On a basic level someone can find the predominant color(s) in your [emotional] aura and describe that to you. I think that's what people who ask "what is my aura like?" usually want to know. Of note, not everyone sees/senses colors in auras. I often don't for example, but I sense plenty of other things that would take longer to explain to someone. Course, you gotta find someone that is good...

    The analogy I hear a lot for describing "healings" is to say "they are like a shower for your soul." Briefly put, there are other "dimensions of your being", and they can be impinged on/interfered with for various reasons, or somehow blocked, clogged, etc. A "healing" generally undoes those sorts of things. Somewhat similar to acupuncture and unblocking/stimulating acupuncture points and chi meridians. Being in nature, catching sunlight, eating healthy food, drinking plenty of water, physical exercise, breathing well will do some of those things as well, especially for your chi [the "lowest" level/layer of your aura].

    I will say, most of the people who read the basic colors in my aura, there were no real surprises there. "I see lots of blue and green, which indicate an easy-going personality and a affinity for nature and maybe healing as well. That yellow around your head indicates you think a lot."

    no clue
    This to me, is instinctual. I know about some of the theory behind astral travel, and I've done a little of it, but I don't focus on the theory behind healing or the several bodies. I know of the several bodies you have according to viking lore, but that's it. When I 'help' someone, I do tend to see shifts in their color, in their..energy? Lightbursts, dark clouds, that kind of stuff, but that's usually coupled to feelings and I have no clue if that is caused by the emotions I'm getting or if it's my minds eye. It's on my list of things to delve into, but right now I'm working on other stuff.

    I'm pretty much like Amargith in this regard. It's instinctual and such.

    Decided to not post earlier because I figured people would think I was crazy, but it's too late for that.

    EDIT: This is pretty much why-

    Yes, that is the problem. Finding a good aura reader. I could even pay for a really interesting aura reading session done by a person who really can do it and is good in it. Because I am open to the possibility of auras and all sorts of things. I don't necessarily believe either but don't deny it either.
    It would be interesting and I would be very curious to hear what they have to say even in deeper level.

    I haven't had any opportunity for this kind of activity and haven't tried to find an aura reader. But I'm always very curious of new things.

    One INFP in my previous work place went regularly to aura readings. He also did yoga and was a vegetarian. Many people thought him as the funny sort of guy. I though his experiences and view on life was refreshingly different and interesting. Too bad I cannot remember what he told me about aura readings and how his aura was said to be.
