his body. It was the Kirlians, however, who connected the light emanations as actual activity of life. Fast forward several years: Aura photography now combines Kirlian photography with research on biofeedback. Hand-shaped plates serve as sensors that measure your electromagnetic field. The camera converts the energy readings into frequencies. Each By Angela Eward-Mangione, Managing Editor ave you ever thought about having your aura photographed? How about getting a chakra analysis? If you are already familiar with words like “aura” and “chakra;” you are probably intrigued by the possibility of having the former photographed and the latter analyzed. If you are unfamiliar with these terms; fear not. I shall reveal all that you must know before you go. Aura Photography? There is no scientific question regarding whether or not the “aura” exists. The Science News Letter (May 13, 1939), cites, “Aura of Escaping Stars Surrounds Our Galaxy.” It was also in 1939 that Kirlian Photography was invented in Russia, by Valentina Kirlian and another Russian researched named Semyon. Kirlian photography, also known as radiation-field photography, utilized a specially designed device to reveal the light emanations that surround, encompass, and penetrate a given object. It was a highly controversial, though scientific endeavor and discovery; Science News reported America’s interest in the photography in its September 1973 article titled, “Science Focuses on a ‘Light of Life.’” Many intriguing points concerning the Kirlian research were recorded in this article; most importantly: 1.)

I felt motivated by the affirmation of my growth and encouraged to allay my anxiety and fear by resting more and giving more to myself, not just others. Chakra Analysis I also received a basic chakra analysis. Chakra, in Sanskrit, means “wheel” or “circle.” Chakras are the core of your aura; indeed Kirlian photography produced evidence of the chakras and meridians of Chinese acupuncture. There are seven primary chakras in the human energy system. They align from the base of the spine to the crown of your head. Moreover, each chakra is associated with a certain color. What you need to know before you go is that your chakra analysis will assess your chakras, tell you which ones are out of balance, and give you specific instructions and examples for how to comfrequency corresponds to a particular color. plete your balancing act.
