Would like to read a good book about auras.

The only recommendation I have so far is Ted Andrews How to read and percieve the Aura, I might try it for the beginning, but would like to know what else there is on the market.

Is there anything else you can recommend me? Have you read Andrews book and what do you think of it?

I'm quite fond of Victor and Cora Anderson's Etheric Anatomy, because it is the only thing out there that describes what I've perceived.

My understanding of Andrews is that he is reasonably knowledgeable about neo-shamanism (and a real trip to work with; I did an hour workshop with him once), and Llewellyn basically said, 'This guy can write!  Let's get him to do a bunch of 101 books!' never mind that they were outside his field, and thus nowhere near as good as his totem stuff.  I haven't read any of them.

I have that book - well book, it's quite small - but I liked some of what he wrote and how he wrote it Smiley
It is different from other stuff, that's right. I managed to get it over amazon when I started to be interessted in Feri.

That seems to be what happened with Richard Webster as well. He writes well, so he gets to write all sorts of 101 books. Although I can tell he really tries to do his research, when he writes on some subjects it is obvious he has no real idea.

I like his animal-guide stuff. It gives you a lot of ideas and things to try out. What makes me a bit uneasy about him is that he harmonizes different views on subjects from various cultures or just states something matter-of-factly without explaining.

For example when he states in Animal Speak that animal blood would disturb the human aura. I can see how practices related to african nature religions can be disgusting for an animal lover, but then why doesn't he say that straight away instead of claiming better knowledge than other traditions without explanation or proof?

Basically, I love reading his stuff (and yeah, he can write), but I don't trust him fully. I'm a sceptic.



Maybe I should specify what I'm looking for exactly. I can't see colors or clearly shaped auras. I just see something that looks like hot air, steam or mist, sometimes also a faint shimmering or sparkling light. So I'd like to have a beginner's book that would help me to understand my perception and make it better, because I can't really controll it and it is a bit disturbing to suddenly see something strange around a person or thing and than have it vanish when you want to examine it closely.

I'm also interested in strenghtening your aura stuff, but I'd firstly like to understand what my eyes are doing to me.  Huh
