The fact that some people can see auras while others cannot, is intriguing. Could it be an inborn gift or something that must be learned?
The Spanish researchers say that healers who claim they can see auras have a neuropsychological feature – something called, “synesthesia”. This phenomenon is a fusion of sensations of the five senses.
It happens due to an active connection between the parts of the brain responsible for processing stimuli. Thus, these people can feel or see the sound as well as associate people with a certain color.
Synesthesia isn’t learned
The odd ability to connect colors with foods and sensations of touch with music is not a trait learned while growing up. In fact, many children experience this gift at an early age.
Studies have confirmed that the gift is more prevalent in women and is passed down from a certain ancestor, hence it is most definitely genetic. About one in 2,000 people are synesthetic, and the results of tests among these people are consistent with the same tests conducted over a century ago.
Which lead many people to believe that the ability to see auras is a product of this mixture of the senses. If an individual can see the music they play, why can’t they see the color of energy surrounding the human form? The ability to see these things makes seeing auras a simple task, wouldn’t you think?
In an article published in the scientific journal Consciousness and Cognition, professors of the Department of Experimental Psychology of the University of Granada, Oscar Iborra, and Luis Pastor proposed the first scientific explanation for the multicolored energy field that surrounds living beings and is invisible for ordinary people.
The scientists note that although most healers do not have synesthesia, there is a large number of people who display this syndrome. Many people believe that they have paranormal abilities, but it all comes down to a scientific explanation of the particularities of their brain.
Suppose most “powers” are just those unlocked portions we here so much about, you know, the unchartered territories of the mind. That would certainly explain so much.
For their study, the researchers interviewed a few people with synesthesia.
Here’s an outstanding example: Esteban Sanchez-Casas, a healer from Granada. This specified character is an example of someone gifted with “face-color” synesthesia, which means that he has a certain region of the brain which is responsible for the recognition of individuals associated with the color zone, so he relates each person with a certain color. He also has “mirror touch” synaesthesia, so when this healer sees someone who feels pain, he feels the same pain.
In particular, he has a high level of empathy, namely the ability to feel what another person feels. Thanks to these features, he developed special abilities of emotional reading that inspire confidence in people.
This could be the answer to why we see auras
Could it be that a high level of empathy, paired with synesthetic abilities could give us the ability to seeing auras? It’s a likely and possible idea. Facts cannot lie, and it’s obvious something beyond the ordinary is going on here. Now that we can see energy fields and read minds, what’s next?
Your guess is good as mine.
