Not sure if you know much about auras? I'd love your fedback on this one.

An aura is a coloured outline, or set of outlines, that emanate from the surface of an object. The aura reflects a supernatural energy field or life force that permeates all things. Usually, auras are only visible to certain people. The specific colours in auras have specific meanings. Each colour can be connected with a note on the musical scale, a planet in the solar system. It is believed that the auras reflect the spiritual and physical state of a person. For example, a dark bluish to black area is seen around the chest of patients indicating lung cancer. Auras have two or more bands of colours. The number of bands varies, and there are many different systems for classifying these bands.

Aura has also been compared to synesthesia, where, sounds induce the ability to see colours. One theory behind auras is that individuals who see auras are experiencing a form of synesthesia in which colours are associated with people.

In 1908, Dr. Walter J. Kilner invented a method for viewing the human aura using coloured screens made of glass cells containing dicyanin dyes in alcohol solution. He made the discovery that most people can see auras when they change the focus of their eyes. These energy fields are documented by a form of photography called Kirlian photography.


Clairvoyance is the ability or power to see objects, and visions, or gain information regardless of its distance. The visions may be in the future, or sometimes in the past. Clairvoyance is a term used to refer to telepathy, Spiritualism, psychic research, second sight, prophetic visions, and dreams.

The word psychic relates to the mind or soul, rather than the physical and physiological. It’s commonly used when referring to the paranormal, occult, or supernatural.

Clairaudience is the gift of hearing conversations or information being transmitted vocally. Clairsentience is the ability to know and feel things about places and so sense what has happened there. Most psychics or mediums have one or more of these skills.

Here is one on Automatic Writing

Automatic writing is the process, or product, of writing material that does not come from the conscious thought. The writer's hand forms the message, and the person is unaware of what will be written. It is often done in a trance state. Yvette has successfully used the technique in Most Haunted.

The writer takes a pencil and sheet of paper and positions their self as if about to write something. They then turn their attention elsewhere. Often, the writing is illegible. However, sometimes words, sentences or whole paragraphs appear. The message may be signed with a name other than that of the person writing, or shows a different handwriting to normal. The same process can be done with a computer keyboard. Some people know all the words one by one, as they are being written, or in phrases. Others have no idea of what is being written until they are finished, and they read the writing. As the process can be really fast it’s easiest to use single sheets of paper and number them as you go along.

Automatic writing is used as a form of channeling. It is also used in psychology as a means of gaining insight into the mind of the writer through their subconscious word choices. It has also been used in the Surrealist movement as a tool to enhance creativity.

Skeptics claim that any messages come from the mind of the person holding the pencil. Others believe that automatic writing is directed by a spirit and that it allows people to access other intelligences and entities for information and guidance. Some people have had bad experiences doing automatic writing and become convinced that an evil spirit or Satan is behind it.

Since the early days of Spiritualism, automatic writing has been accepted as a way to receive communications from the spirit world. Some believe that the spirits manipulate the pencil to communicate. Others believe that perhaps the spirits may also communicate by forming messages in the mind of the medium, which reproduce on the page. Mediums have claimed to produce messages from famous persons in history, deceased authors, and composers.
It’s possible to go beyond messages and include drawing, painting, and even music inspired by spirits. Sometimes, those with little or no artistic training feel compelled to paint or draw in distinctive styles. They feel guided by a spirit.
