Is There An Aura Around You

Have you ever been told that you have a aura about you? If so, what will the circumstances? Were you praying or?

Moderator - Yes several times. No special circumstances. However, I question someone that says such a thing. It sounds new age? I can not really say it is a Christian concept?

Trav, the statement was basic truth. We would shine our boots and the guy would walk by and the polish would melt right off of them.
Forget the aura foolishness.
---Elder on 7/26/11

I can't forget this Aura....this guy was a genius. Yes .....the enemy could locate him in the dark....but, what enemy would want to hand to hand with him?
This guy knew all he had to do was catch those grenades and throw em back. No knives for him. No sharing the tent, sleeping bag. Bet he always had an extra swig his canteen from the savings.

Reminds me of the toothless gal that always sucked the choclate off peanuts. The preacher came by to visit and helped himself to the bowl of peanuts. Once.

Trav, the statement was basic truth. We would shine our boots and the guy would walk by and the polish would melt right off of them.
CN family, we are to be known by the content of our hearts and the actions of our bodies not by some sign in or around us. The wicked seek for signs.
If someone tells you that you have an aura about you ask them if they can see Jesus in your life and actions. Forget the aura foolishness.
---Elder on 7/26/11

Skunks have auras!
---John on 7/25/11

Unfortunately the aura is very spiritual sounding but New Age.

But if the aura you have smells bad then take a shower and put on the spritzer.

I suggest French Vanilla or my favorite, English Lavender.
---poopsey on 7/23/11

As I have said before I believe that it is a matter of discernment on the part of the person seeing the aura on someone else.
I have had this happen one time in a hospital. The Lady that had the aura about her was a Catholic nun. And on this occasion she led a group of us in prayer. Immediately after the prayer my mother turned to me and asked do you see and feel what I see and feel? Yes I said a true spiritual person.
---mima on 7/22/11

I was in the Military with a soldier who had an aura about him most of the time. Everyone that got near him could see it. Those who were not close could tell he had it.
We made him take a shower and it went away.....
---Elder on 6/3/11

Funny Elder. Loved it.....cuz know it's probably true makes it more funny.
---Trav on 7/22/11

I have great admiration for the moderator to openly state on its happening to him. And I do not want him to feel he is alone in this matter. I have been told this about myself on at least three different occasions. While it may seem self-serving I believe it is a matter of discernment "spiritual" discernment.
---mima on 6/21/11


In such cases, I was not conducting research, so I didn't poll everyone around me to see if they saw the same thing, and it's too late to go back and look. However, in at least a couple of the cases, the people involved were regarded as "holy people" or "saints" by those who knew them (and in one of the cases, it was a group who were NOT accustomed to using such terms lightly - i.e. the Jehovah's Witnesses).
---StrongAxe on 6/21/11

Donna66 Amen.
---Darlene_1 on 6/21/11

Yes, Darlene, nothing "new" about "New Age". You and I, who have been around for "generations", can see people latching on to NA ideas as if they were something remarkable and and unique. Same old lies "recycled".
---Donna66 on 6/20/11

Donna66 thanks for that information. Yes there has been "New Age" which rears its ugly head under a different name ever so often In Biblical times the beliefs of the Gnostics were a form of "New Age" thinking. Christians always need to be alert to all the false doctrines which crop up especially when they claim to be new. The Bible says there is nothing new under the Sun. Ecclesiastes 1:9 What has been will be again,what has been done will be done again,there is nothing new under the Sun.
---Darlene_1 on 6/20/11

Darlene-1. That's right, New Age ideas were not popular in the fifties...but the movement was alive and well. It was popular in the 1920's and 30's,and then again in the sixties when the hippies adopted New Age ideas.

(My understanding comes from a brief unfortunate marriage to a Rosicrucian. The Rosicrucian Fellowship ..Association of Christian Mystics est 1909, Seattle.) Auras have a long history among mystics, from medieval times. Yes,scientists did become interested in exploring auras when they had the instrumentation to do so.

I don't doubt your experience was due to a move of the HS.
But I still associate the word "auras" with New Age.
---Donna66 on 6/18/11

Donna66 just for informaion. The term Aura wasn't conneted to the "New Age" when I first read about it way back in the fifties. It was being researched as a method to prove it could be used to diagnoise different types of illnesses. They used a special camera to photograh people and I saw the pictures and it did show differences with different illness. Mima Auras have nothing to do with Christians they come out from the body according to that research I gave above and the bright light above a praying person comes upon them from God,its his power/anointing which shows as light,Read 1:26-28 Ezekeil. The Auras belong to a person,the light is from God and his presence and power.
---Darlene_1 on 6/17/11

Axey,et al: When Moses' face glowed, the whole of the nation of Israel saw it (including the sinful ones). Did everyone else around you see this glow about others? If not, you should question what you saw.
---jerry6593 on 6/10/11

Mima, you sure have a way with words when someone does not agree. First you say the RCC are the most blinded, then you say the Baptist are. Did you not stop to think that maybe you are? What about the Pentacostals or SDA's? Why are you the one with the power to see which Baptist is blind? Because they are many kinds of Baptist. Reform, none reform, workers of the law, and those who follow the law of the Spirit. What happened was Donna66 said aura's come from New Age, which I believe is true, and you assumed in your mind, that she was blind, because you see aura's. Maybe you are just open to mystical things and spiritualize what you see. Can you prove what you saw as biblical? I don't think so.
---Mark_V. on 6/5/11

Mima-- Did you have to slam the Baptists? (But I understand your point)

Even Spirit-filled/Pentecostal churches I have attended in the past..and even now.. do not not recognize "auras". Does that make them spiritually "blind" while the the New Age followers are spiritually insightful?

I won't question anything you have seen. But I would strongly hesitate to adopt "new age" terminology in describing it.

---Donna66 I do not know what spiritual significance aura have. I think I have seen three or four people with a aura but I was too ignorant spiritually to understand. Today I ask the Pastor have you never heard of people having a aura about them? No he said I had never heard it. Of course he's a Baptist and Baptist may be the most spiritually blinded people among us.
---mima on 6/5/11

Strongaxe, your correct. What happens is, many hear, or read something from someone, and they take it all the way to the left, or the right. They cannot take what they learn and piece the whole of Scripture together. Many times because all they hear is from the left or right. They read from some guy who has had an experience and they believe what that person says is for everyone. Aura's have many explanations. We cannot take one and go with it. Example, Jesus said, "greater works than these he will do" Many take this all the way to the left and say they can do greater works in power. They can never do greater works in power since He is God. yet they argue they can. Everything in Scripture has to reconcile.
---Mark_V. on 6/5/11


Thank you. Perhaps the auras people exhibit, and the spirits they manifest, are one and the same thing. On several occasions, I have seen an almost perceptible glow around certain people. These people were few and far between, generally of a character that others might refer to as "saintly", and of diverse backgrounds. One was a Jehovah's Witness (which again emphasizes how God is much more interested with the fruit we bear than on the specific doctrines that we happen to believe in).

Moses was described as having a face so bright, he had to wear a veil when interacting with others. I believe artists saw such bright countenances and rendered them as golden circles or halos around the heads of saints.
---StrongAxe on 6/5/11

Mima-- So what is the significance of an aura? If it is spiritually discerned, what is it's spiritual meaning? I don't care about auras, who has them or who doesn't. Am I missing something?
I've never heard anyone but "new agers" speak about auras.

It is my contention that there are many people on this blog that have auras about them(elder you fall in this group) but do not have anyone around them with enough spiritual discernment to tell them that such is the case. Also many of us are too spiritually ignorant to be aware of others aura!!! Instead of poking fun a little review of what you have said to others, and others have said to you, concerning what they see(or have seen) might amaze you
---mima on 6/4/11

Strongaxe, very good answer. We are never told they had many senses that we don't know of before the fall, but we are told they got more after the fall.
Concerning aura's, when I first was saved, I thought I saw an aura around one old sister. She was so much a saint in my mind by her actions and none actions, always praying and always talking about the Lord. But it wasn't an aura, but the Spirit of God which seemed to come out of her, as we are told in Scripture about living waters.
What is even more wonderful to know is that the cell that keeps us glued together, is a cell formed in a Cross. Now that is awesome.

If Adam had extra senses and could see many things we can't see today, and was also in light, how was it possible that he was unable to see something plainly visible (i.e. that he was naked) that only became apparent after he lost those senses and the light?

Rather, to the contrary, they could see things after the fall that they could not see previously - not because they lost senses, but because they gained them:

Genesis 3:7
"And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons."

\\The aura is what is left, and might even be that part of God's breath which gives life??\\

Nope. Try again.

Christ is risen!
---Cluny on 5/31/11

Can't prove this, it's just a thought! I think Adam and Chava existed in light and that when Adam sinned the light went out and they were able to see their nakedness. I imagine before sin Adam could see things we can not even perceive today. The aura is what is left, and might even be that part of God's breath which gives life??
---Ken_Rank on 5/31/11

Cluny: "There may be some kind of mild electrical field around living things--sometimes called an aura--that can be imaged by Kirlian photography."

Not likely! Kirlian photography is simply corona discharge photography (of both living and non-living objects) using an impressed RF field. New Age spiritualists have adopted it as "proof" of their eastern mystic beliefs. I would hope that no Christian would buy into such rot.

//Donna66: It's too bad that people like you don't have the backbone to stand up to evil abusers//

Mat 27:14 But [Jesus] gave [Pilate] no answer, not even to a single charge, so that the governor was greatly amazed.

Donna66, I commend your perceived "weak backbone" You answer quite well, even if i don't agree with the responses sometimes. Most here know that you use constraint knowing that there is a greater good...knowing that sometimes the best answer is no answer at all. You have an opinion but are not opinionated, and for that I commend you.

Thank God that Jesus had a "weak backbone" that day to care for His Father's business and not His own. Luk 22:42...not my will, but yours, be done."
---aka on 5/30/11

Poopsey .... You are not being singled out by JOHN for abuse. Nor have women. He's insulted just as many men!

JOHN loves to insult anyone and everyone, and all denominations and churches, and groups of Christians.

Don't take any notice of him

But I repeat that he is not the only John who posts here
---alan8566_of_uk on 5/30/11

POOPSEY this particular response of John "TO USE DEODARANT" was intended as a joke as was mine about baked beans, now the idea in the blogs is to share ideas and thoughts, yes there are things that can sting, and not everybody is communicating as Christ would. but then again to be a christian is a work in proggress. at the end of each blog we need to walk away and conclude that this aint nothing.
---andy3996 on 5/30/11

Donna66: It's too bad that people like you don't have the backbone to stand up to evil abusers like John. Did you really think I was going to take his abuse lying down? You are sadly mistaken.

I hope someone abuses you like that on here and then basically no one comes to your defense.

Some of you on here are great big phonies. Grab a brain. That John guy has insulted many women on here and possibly sent some over the edge but he doesn't care because he doesn't have a conscience just like most of you here.

---John on 5/28/11

sometimes i have an aura arround me, specialy after eating baked beans.
but seriously, when someone has an aura arround him, it is nothing spiritual, it is the energy that is exasperated. we are little powerplants you know, modern science can "make it vissible" with certain heat and energy measuring tools. on the other hand the devil spiritualises the natural things to catch us in his net of occultism. stay away from people (even in church) who claim seeing aura's . remember Branham.
---andy3996 on 5/28/11

Now an aura is totally different to what you have "experienced". Jesus changed in the garden, Moses came from the tabernacle with a shining face. so this is an experience comming from the outside towards us. and it is the Lord in control.
---andy3996 on 5/28/11

mima- I see the experience darlene had as a manifestation of the Holy Spirit...not an "aura."
Scripture does not describe an "aura" anywhere that I recall.
It talks about "light" or even "fire". Act2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. That sounds quite similar to darlene's description, doesn't it.

I heard of "auras" earlier than the 70's. The New Age Movement, isn't "new". The popular names for it just change with the times.

\\Those who do not possess the gift of discernment will always play these happenings down.\\

The first thing to discern in the presence of this, that, or the other sign is what doctrine comes with it.

I heard a man "ministering in prophecy", and people were eating it up with a spoon.

The problem was he had just denied the physical Resurrection of Christ not 10 minutes before.

Obviously, he was a false prophet.

What do you think, mima?

Call the Center for Disease Control Nuclear Emergency Preparedness Response and report a Radioactive Contamination and Radiation Exposure incident. Or you have been playing Radioactive Zombie Island too much.

---Darlene I have heard what you described before. In 2000 at a meeting in Arizona a man named Albert Israeli a converted Jew gave a description of virtually the same thing taking place while he was praying. I believe that the gift of discernment is being displayed here. Those who do not possess the gift of discernment will always play these happenings down. Descriptions of these events are strong meat of the word indeed.

Not an aura,I understand that is all around a person in several different colors and eminates from them. What I experienced wasn't like that. I was helping a friend by sitting up with her husband who had cancer of the bladder and was too old and weak to be operated on. My friend ask me to pray for him,of course I did. The room was darkened and when she looked at me while I prayed there was a bright light shinning all above my head. I know I felt the presence of God anointing me as I prayed and I think it was his light resting upon me. The next morning she called and said her husband was much improved and they were able to operate on him,he lived many years after that.No New Age heard of back in the 1970s. It was God & Christian.

There may be some kind of mild electrical field around living things--sometimes called an aura--that can be imaged by Kirlian photography.

I'm seen a few demonstrations of it on TV, but it's not something I spend my time worrying about. If it exists, it's a purely natural phenomenon of no spiritual significance.

Christ is risen!
