Your Intuitive Imagination and The Subconscious Mind
The use of your imagination and intuition brings your subconscious mind into play. One of the interesting aspects about the subconscious mind is that it doesn’t know the difference between what’s real and what’s imagined. As an example, try imagining an argument you had with someone, either recently or long ago.
As you replay (and imagine) the argument in your mind, you will notice that you begin to experience the emotions you felt when you originally had the argument. If you do this for long, you will also begin to exhibit physical responses as well -- increased heart rate, tense muscles, discomfort in the stomach area, to name a few possible reactions. If you have actually tried this experiment while reading this, don’t spend too much time verifying it’s accuracy -- it’s a genuine waste of time reliving unpleasant events of the past, and can actually lead to physical illness.
You may also be familiar with the experience of trying to solve a problem, and after working at it for a while with no sign of a solution, you may have given up -- only to find that the answer literally popped into your mind a few hours or days later. This usually happens when you least expect it, such as when you are asleep or in the shower. This phenomena of “automatic solutions” is a manifestation of your subconscious mind, which will work relentlessly at solving a problem once you have expressed a sincere desire for its solution.
In this way, you may very well find that your initial approach of imagining or visualizing auras eventually leads to your being able to perceive auras with your physical senses. It is simply a matter of your subconscious mind understanding that you are sincere in your wish to see auras and then working out the best approach for you.
