Everything in existence is permeated by a field of electromagnetic energy which is known by many names. This life force energy, prana or chi emanates from every object, person and living thing to produce a subtle field of radiation in varying colors, known as the aura.
People who have an expansive aura are often said to have a ‘presence’ that fills up a room without them saying a word. This auric field can be viewed as a mirror which reflects the emotional, mental and spiritual state of a being and can also reveal any dissonance or blockages in a person’s energy field.
A vibrant aura emitting bright colors indicates a balanced and high vibrational frequency or chi, whereas a dark or discolored aura signifies imbalanced, stagnant or depleted energy. This could be the result of illness or disease or emotional blockages in a person’s energy.

How Can I See Auras?
Some people have the natural ability to see the auric field around a person or object, however, for most people specialized equipment such as Inneractive aura cameras or aura photography equipment is required.
Aura photography originally comes from Kirlian photography which was discovered in 1939 by a Russian scientist called Semyon Kirlian. Along with his wife, Valentina, Kirlian found that if an object is placed onto a high-voltage photographic plate, an image of the object is captured surrounded by a coronal discharge. This technique is also known as electrography, corona discharge photography, gas discharge visualization and Kirlianography.
The mysterious energy surrounding the object is created by the glow of gas discharges as the electrically charged air reacts to the object. Aura imaging software can record the electromagnetic energy which emanates from an object or a person’s body and interpret the readings to provide information on potential energy imbalances, blocked meridian channels and offer ways to promote healing.
Energy healers and spiritual practitioners often work with the aura to help release blockages and enable the prana or life force to flow more freely throughout the energy channels of the body.
As your aura is constantly influenced by other people and situations throughout the day you can pick up energies and psychic debris from your surroundings which can negatively impact and weaken your auric field. As a result, you may feel tired, depressed, anxious, or irritable.
This is why it is important to cleanse your aura regularly by taking some of the following steps:
● Take a Cleansing Bath or Shower: Essential oils such as lavender or eucalyptus or Himalayan sea salt can be added to your bath to help cleanse your auric field. Set the intention of washing your aura clean of any energies that are not yours.
● Smudging: Burn sacred herbs such as dried white sage, cedar or frankincense to cleanse your aura by gently passing the smoke around your energy field and body.
● Spend Time in Nature: Ground your energy by walking barefoot on the grass or simply allow the rain to cleanse your aura by imagining any negativity being washed away.
An aura reading can help you understand more about your own energy field and offer techniques to cleanse and uplift your emotional, mental and spiritual well being.
