      feeling energy to seeing it?

      I have a friend who I talked to a lot, who changed my point of view.
      I learned to live in the moment, accept everything, etc etc. It has really helped me.
      I have an issue though, I can't bring myself to meditate sometimes, but I really want to....

      since this, i didn't really have to try, it just happened, but I can feel peoples energy, any time I look at someone i can feel something, it isn't a specific emotion, just a feeling, and its different for everyone...

      what I want to know, is how can I learn to actually see the energy....I am working on opening my third eye and keeping it open, but i can't bring myself to meditate sometimes... :/

      any tips???

      I hate how inner sanctum threads have 325032859834275493875 views and like 4 replies -_- please someone!

      Hey erible!! I have that same feeling when i look at people. i Dont think that you can actually see the energy. Like i dont think that it has a specific color or shape or anything. I think what people mean by seeing peoples energy is that when they get that feeling with a person they make judgments based off of that feeling. And those judgments can be grouped with colors that people feel.

      Think of of painting's. If you paint a winter evening its most likely that you will be using a lot of blues or purples (cool colors) and if your going to paint a summer day you will use a lot of orange and red (warm colors).

      So i think that if i where to look at a pregnant woman and get that "feeling" than i might group that with the color gree meaning fertile.

      Of course i have not done much reading over the third eye. Maybe you can tell me about it sometime.

      I was always a dreamer, in childhood especially. People thought I was a little strange.-Charley pride

      I think you should focus on what you do best, that is feeling instead of seeing. Since you already know how to do it, you should try to master it

      I think its more reliable to feel energy anyways. I read somewhere (Castaneda i think?) that if you have enough personal energy you will automatically begin to see energy. Dont know. I sometimes see colored light like auras and such when im tired, but I dont really try to practice it. I like to feel. But its different for everyone I guess...

      Please tell more of why you find it difficult to meditate? is it finding the time? having the patience, concentration?

      As for energy, I've never seen it, though I do sense it, I think. Mainly someone Im close or related too. I know the second I see them if they are in a good or bad mood. Not by their expressions, words or actions, just by looking at them for that brief second. I dont know if thats the same, but I would love to improve upon it.

      this is true, but what it is i don't know.

      i see this:

      around telephone lines.

      i see this:


      24/7 everywhere i look. it's not blue, though. i see a film over everything, this film is made up of static, and in this static there are tiny tubes with balls of light flowing through them. imagine yourself looking at a television set where there is no picture, only static. now imagine the static is clear instead of black and white, this is what i see covering everything and it never goes away.

      here is something else i can see. if i focus in on these tubes long enough, my vision pierces through the film and i see this:


      now once i've seen this, it's just a matter of time before i completely disappear. by that i mean i have no idea who, or what or even where i am. i'm just thought without sound, and i'm stuck there untill my body decides to snap outa of it.
      i don't go past the rainbow too often, though. there's spooky shit in there

      I used to wonder what people meant by seeing energy, and if it was something you have to develop. I remember people talking about seeing energy on acid and I never saw anything remotely different from reality on any drug (except Salvia and DMT). One day, I realized I had always seen it, just didn't notice. I saw something very similar to what Green Havoc described. Actually I still see it now that I know how to look, I just don't usually consider it.

      Feeling energy is more important though because seeing it does not provide anything more practical other than knowing it's visible. Feeling energy enables you to ascertain the condition of the energy you're receiving as well as the frequency of the oscillations.

      Normally I have to focus on seeing it. You really have to let go and let it flow. You have to let go of your grip on what you believe to be true about your reality and perception. What you believe to be true. then you can see it. You don't allow yourself to become detached from your grip on what you see physically. You must let go of your mind. Your perceptions and judgement. To see the pure essence of all. To see it in everyone. To see it in everything.

      I agree, I think. I mean, I dont know if ive actually seen it.. but ive had a few strange experiences. Last night I decided to stare at my hand before sleep, and see if I could see any aura, and after a while my hand sort of morphed into weird shapes/colours, its hard to explain but in the sence of a pc game i switched the texture of the hand for something completely different? The more I thought this is strange the more it came back to reality so i instead started thinking 'this is a dream', and it lingered for a bit longer. When i closed my eyes i could see a very bright version of my hand. Any thoughts?

      I have to advocate this explanation at this time:

      The eyes do not see what the mind creates, the eyes obtain senseless information from the world which the mind sorts into something comprehensible. There have been numerous studies done to show how the mind will change the tint of a color based upon the background in order to draw contrasts so the observer can better pick out predators and stuff. I will include a TED talk to follow which examines how this works.

      The point is if you stare at something without focus for long enough, the mind will grow tired of creating an image out of arbitrary sensory data. The mind's construction will break down and the observer will begin to see what the eye actually observers rather than the mind-construct (granted the receptors in the eye will also burn out, distorting the image further). So the hand will begin to morph into raw data, making it appear as though its shape is fluctuating. This doesn't mean you cannot see energy, necessarily. It could mean that the mind clears energy away from the picture in order to create a more practical image.

      ^I think someone already posted this in a better context. How can you see anything other than light? What do you mean by energy?

      Your not pointing out anything I'm ignorant of, they're obviously talking about a form of energy with behaviors that light has never exhibited experimentally.

      Hmm i don't have as much trouble now, but sometimes my mind wanders too much, but I can tend to fix that but for me, it's usually just getting started with it that i seem to have trouble with xD But not as much trouble as I did before (like when I made this thread)

      Yeah I can sometimes see energy, sort of around people but I can tell I'm just seeing a little bit. Some people have blobs, and some have the typical looking aura around them. I know some people see it as tentacles and what not, probably more people who are used to it. And hm I know what you mean with feeling it being more important, but seeing it is sort of just making it more tangible, like you said. It helps if you want to do anything with energy, give people energy and what not, you can see it. Just sort of an affirmation moreso.

      Don't worry about trying to "see" anything, just sense it. The eyes can be very deceptive.

      Sounds like symptoms of hypoxia.

      i've always thought i did something to my eyes from straining them so much in my youth. i did a lot of lsd back then. hypoxia sounds kinda dangerous, but surely something like that can't last as many years as i've been experiencing this thing

      Everyone gets hypoxia. It's also known as standing up too fast.

      You'd know if you had a serious medical condition related to hypoxia because you'd pass out or get headaches while hiking or in high altitudes
