Some seers – often children – see multi-colored dots and auras, as they are called. The dots usually are floating around and the auras surround people and some objects. The auras appear like a light surrounding the person or object.
For a long while, our seer daughter has told us she sees multi-colored dots floating around, all the time, everywhere. I believed they were artifacts floating on her retina. You know, those squiggly little things that float on your eye that you can’t seem to get rid of… Well no. She sees dots. Bright, multi-colored dots and lights.
Then, for a long time, we thought they were spirits,but they didn’t act like spirits.
They didn’t react to us or to prayer or to the Name of Jesus – and spirits always react to the Name of Jesus; these multi-colored dots just seemed to float around randomly.
And she sees them all the time.
Multi-colored dots are real and they are not spirits.
What we have learned is, lots of children see these things in the spiritual realm. Children are unaware that most of us adults cannot see them. Parents have subjected their kids to MRIs, CAT scans, and eye exams. Heck, my wife and I had our daughter’s eyes check out. Nothing amiss can be detected (she is slightly near-sighted). That’s because the only amiss about children seeing into the spirit world is our perception of children seeing into the spirit world.
See this blog post for more recent thoughts about what it is these seers are seeing.
Auras and Lights around People
Some people can see lights outlining people and even objects, like pictures. For simplicity’s sake, I’ll call these auras. (For more thoughts on Auras, including what they may truly be verses counterfeit ideas, go here). Our daughter is one of them, and only recently, she realized we didn’t see the lights too.
Some seers perceive the spiritual power in a person.
I know of witches and sorcerers who can see in the spirit who have tried cursing people who shine with white or blue light or are covered in red in the spirit realm, and they can’t figure out why the curses won’t affect those blood-soaked people. Well, that’s the blood of Jesus, and it covers them.
The light that makes up the auras is the power drawn from the spirit in a person. Some people shine brightly with the white light of the Holy Spirit, who makes Christ-followers His home. Sometimes the fire of the Holy Spirit can burn so powerfully in someone, their aura can appear whitish-blue.
And yes, objects can be blessed or cursed as well.
Some are looking for a concise color-code for auras. That’s a cheat for the gift of discernment, which the Holy Spirit will empower, especially in Seers. The human brain is remarkably sensitive and perception is shaped by many aspects. Whereas one seer may perceive one color around a person, another seer will perceive that impression differently or not at all or at different times. This appears to add subjectivity to the perception of auras, but this subjectivity doesn’t invalidate the perception.
The human brain is remarkably sensitive.
People perceive colors differently in the natural, depending on a host of factors. One factor is a person’s sex. Women see colors and their brains interpret them differently than men. Whereas a woman may describe a color as azure, a male may see only blue. The brains between men and women are (shock) different. 1
Even computer screens and color printers will render precise colors differently, which in turn look differently to different people. How much more would spiritual perception be difficult to quantify?
Some people draw their spiritual power or essence from their own human spirit or from other spirits, and seers can pick up on that, and, through God’s gift, discern something from their auras.
A biblical example is basically anytime Jesus showed up with people who were oppressed or possessed by demons. Those people discerned the power in him, and ran to him. One man ran to him from far away, he couldn’t possibly have seen who was getting off the boat unless he saw in the spirit the shining man from heaven, sent to make him free from demons, because where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
Multi-colored dots. What are they?
This is highly speculative. I suspect they are some sort of quantum connection to the spirit world and other dimensions of reality. (I actually don’t think the word “dimensions” in the scientific sense accurately describes the spiritual realm).
Between the physical world and (normally invisible) spiritual world exists a cosmic veil. The spiritual world is inhabited by things and entities that sometimes affect events in the physical world.
Some unexplainable phenomena in the physical world can be explained by causes in the spiritual. Activity in the spirit realm do not follow the same laws of physics as activity in the physical. Actually, in the physical realm, at very small levels (quantum levels), normal laws of physics break down as well. It’s at this level the spiritual and physical can easily inteact. Biblically, this explains why Jesus’ resurrected body was physical and could be touched and eat, and yet could walk through walls at will, or why angels can poof in and out of site in an instant, as they pass through the cosmic veil.
When people (mainly children) perceive the multi-colored lights, their brains or their spirits are picking up these intersections of the physical and spiritual.
Why Can Children See Them?
I suspect children are more able to perceive the rainbow colored dots and auras than most adults. First, their imagination is less tainted from observing acts of violence, darkness, or sin, and their worldview hasn’t been molded to accept materialism yet. So their little brains are more able to receive and interpret spiritual phenomena.
