When you first start practising with the interpretation of the Aura it can be discouraging if you do not see colours immediately. That is when pendulums are very useful; no only do they help you, when you first start, they later confirm what you are seeing!

The Aura is the energy field that surrounds all matter – whether that is animate or inanimate. The aura also has lines of energy, which appear as radiant streams of energy extending one or two feet out into the auric field. In Pranic Healing, these are referred to as Health Rays and seeing and feeling these energy rays is one of the easiest ways to interpret the health of a person.
