I have a book called "Are you really psychic"
It describes how everyone has psychic abilities. I read the book halfway, and there is a chapter which explains how to be able to see your aura.
I don't know if it is a lot of chit-chat, but I tried really hard to be able to accomplish this to no avail. I eventually gave up and lost interest in the book.
Since I wasn't just born with the knack for it like some people are, I quickly moved on to bigger and (in my opinion) more important things.
Whether I recommend the book or not, I am neutral. I think books are a great fountain of information, and even when you don't agree with what's written, you have gained wisdom and exercised your brain, in a time that otherwise most people are drinking, smoking, or even worse, watching a bunch of TV.
Good luck finding your aura :)
