I’ve had a few aura photos taken over the years so I decided to collect them all here. I’m still not totally convinced of the “science” behind aura photos, but I do find it all very interesting and intriguing.
Click on the first image then scroll through the gallery to see the enlarged versions. They’re not always the most flattering photos (eyes closed or funny expressions in some of them) but that’s not the point of this photography, so here they are, warts’n’all, so to speak. 😀
How does aura photography work?
Aura photography is based on the understanding of modern technology combined with the information that past cultures have known for millennia. This includes Kirlian photography, electronic acupuncture, biofeedback measurements, as well as old healing methods like acupuncture, acupressure, Ayurveda, and so forth. The method used in aura photography to read ones Aura is known as “Biofeedback”, since a physical reading of one’s bio-signs is the main method of a Aura analysis.
A hand sensor is used, whereby a person puts their left (or right) hand onto the hand sensors. This allows the equipment to measure the standardized biofeedback parameter. The hand sensor itself has various contact points on them; these are connected with certain organs of the body, as well as measure the electromagnetic field of the user and can thus deliver information about the energetic and auric qualities of that person. The hand sensor can also measure deviations in temperature, humidity and static electricity in the environment and the person, allowing for greater precision in data gathering. These data parameters are then projected as a radiant, colored aura field around the body on either a Polaroid photo or onto a computer or television screen.
In short, these kinds of biofeedback probes can pick up your spiritual energy. The camera or video device can then display this information as a colorful field around your body. The colors actually reflect your spiritual and auric state. (1)
Anatomy of the Aura
Right side, picture’s left: This is the person’s masculine energy. It is their expressive and active side, how one projects oneself to the world. It is more straightforward and physical, less emotional. Colors on this side may have to do with physical changes, memories or goals. It is the energy that is moving out. The recent or far past.
Left side, picture’s right: This is the person’s feminine side. This is their passive and receptive side. This side is the emotional and imaginative side. This side is indicative of what a person is projecting into the future. It is the energy that is moving in. The person may not be aware of it yet though.
Center, above the head: This is the energy of the moment, usually in the colors that the person traditionally reflects. The closer the colors are, the more intensely they are thinking about or experiencing them. If there is a band of color stretching like an arc over the top of the photo, this is indicative of a grand fear or goal.
Auras that expand out indicate spiritual expansion, expressiveness, extroversion, social activity, desire for connection, gregariousness, positive outlook, sense of adventure.
Auras closer in indicate inward focus, sensitivity, desire for solitude, meditation, peace, tranquility, or rest. This could mean a need to express or move out. (2)
