    Several people at my church, including the pastor, claim they see auras around people. They don't want to call it "auras", but that's what they describe. I have never seen this. Have any of you? And what is your opinion of this. Sounds weird to me.

    Often people who are color-blind can see a radiating of energy from people (dark or light).

    Each cell in our body is "electric" and some give off a visible energy field. Of course, the New Age types are run wild with this, and made it a cultic religious experience. And Charismatics? Oh, my.

    But doesn't stop the fact that we are full of energy. Have seen a camera that can record this. (Like a thermo-camera that can tell body heat and blood flow).

    [Aside: My wife is an alternative health doctor, so we are "in tune" with a lot of the weird and not-so-weird stuff from the field of the body]

    My opinions is that if my pastor was saying things like that he wouldn't be my pastor much longer.

    Obama had an aura around him, I saw it on all sorts of posters and photos when he was running for President back in '08. Haven't seen it lately though.

    But seriously, it does sound strange, but who knows? I have learned there are strange things in life.

    Sometimes, Auras are a Sign of....

    ....Impending seizures!

    In all seriousness, there have been two different people (women), and they did not know each other, who claimed to see this glow around and about me. They claimed they seen it when I was preaching.

    I didn't want to hurt their feelings, or make them think I was discounting what they saw, but, if they did see something like a light around me when I preached, it may have just been the heat generated when I preached. In my younger days, I was "hot!" :laugh:

    Actually this is when some people see the aura, when pastor is preaching. Other times people have seen it around my friend as she does interpretive movement. It seems to be connected with someone who is glorifying God. I have no reason to doubt this. My church isn't "weird" or charismatic. We don't jump the pews or run the isles. LOL We're just a simple country Baptist church. I called it "weird" just because I don't understand it and I've never seen it. Maybe that makes me weird. :laugh:


    Edit: Even though I don't see these auras, I have very strong feelings (for lack of a better word, it's more like a "sense") around certain people. It's usually a feeling that something is very wrong. I guess you would call it discernment. It is rarely wrong.

    Yes I have. :laugh:

    I sat on a jury once several years ago. I wasn't close to the Lord then though. :(

    I don't think so. This has only spoken of a couple of times. It's not a common subject.

    Generally stages have extra lighting. Could it not be that certain colors and textures of fabric might give off a greater reflection? Starch on a shirt or pants can be reflective. Angles of lighting can reflect differently off of someone who is on a stage.

    Sounds like when DC Comics had Superman able to "see the soul" of people by His x-ray vision!

    Didn't remember aura seeing as a Gift of the Holy Spirit?

    Maybe aura's have to do with wearing the color white or light colors?

    Put me down as a skeptic. What's the purpose of supposedly being able to see this? Do any of these people say why they have this so-called ability?
