Mark Smith, Auras: See Them in Only 60 Seconds, Llewellyn Publications, 1997


Everyone can see the first etheric auric layer, which is closest to the body, and is usually the brightest. The second astral auric layer is farther away from the skin, and more diffuse. Be aware that the colors will change and blend together in these two fields, seldom having a distinct line of separation between them. The following diagram...is included, then, as an approximate location guide only. No two auras are alike, and even the same person's auric presentation frequently changes. The tremendous variety of auric fields you will see as you practice viewing them is limited only by the number of subjects viewed.
