In my blog, 3 Tips For Tapping Into Your Psychic Abilities, I mentioned that understanding and learning to work with your aura or energy field is a key skill. I explained how to Ground Your Energy. I have also covered Psychic Protection, so now you are in a position where you can learn to open and expand your aura.

Why Do You Need To Open & Expand Your Aura To Be More Psychic?

Our aura is a major tool in us being able to pick up on information on an energetic or psychic level. When our aura ‘mixes’ or comes into contact with someone else’s we sense it, and we can learn to sense things about them. You know the feeling when someone stands too close and you have to move away because something makes you feel uncomfortable, or when a certain person stands near and you feel relaxed and at ease. All of those feelings are linked to things you are picking up by being in contact energetically through your auras.

So opening or expanding your aura allows you to work psychically with others, but you can also use it pick up on the energy of buildings and locations, a well as that of spirit presences.

How Do You Open & Expand Your Aura?

Visualisation, posture and breathing are instrumental in expanding your aura. Your intention is also important.

Simply by stating your intention, you will be in the right frame of mind to work psychically, and your guides will draw close to assist you.

Sitting or standing in such a way that allows your energy to flow unimpeded will help with the whole process of expanding your energy field.

Visualisation and breathing work together to cause the energetic change that expands and opens your aura, making you more sensitive to the subtle energies around you.

A Simple Aura Expanding Exercise

      • Before you start, put psychic protection in place.
      • It is better if you stand to do this. Your feet should be hip-width apart, knees are soft, pelvis slightly tucked under, as though you are gently pulling in your lower stomach muscles. Allow your arms to hang loosely at your sides and imagine that the crown of your head is suspended from a string from high above you. This should help you to extend your neck slightly.
      • Now imagine your aura all around you, as though you’re standing in the middle of a ball of light.
      • Breathe slowly and deeply. Each in-breath releases pure white energy into your aura, making it brighter and lighter.
      • After a few breaths, instead of filling your aura, each breath slowly expands it, much like blowing up a giant balloon that you are in. It is still bright and full, but it I expanding further and further. How far can you expand your aura? Can you see it filling the room?
      • Be aware of how it feels, and what you are now aware of.
      • After a few minutes, reverse the process so that you pull your aura in closer to you with each breath until it is back to normal.
      • Finally, ground your energy.

Once you get the hang of this you may find that by expanding your energy you start to pick up on spirit presences such as your guides, angels or loved ones. Then you will understand how this process helps you to tap into and develop your psychic powers.

P.S. Energy work like tai chi and yoga can really help you to get to grips with expanding your aura.
