an electromagnetic energy field that surrounds animate and inanimate things. All matter is comprised of atoms and each atom is comprised of electrons & protons that are constantly in motion.
Animate objects/things have more active atoms therefore their auric or energy fields are more visible.
The aura of a human being has several layers namely: the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The aura can be “seen” by trained psychologists and naturally gifted individuals. There is nothing mystical about the aura. You don’t have to be psychic or a mystic to see the aura. Anyone can learn to see the aura, however, it takes a lot of practice, time and perseverance.
In 1939, two Russians, Semyon and Valentina Kirlian accidentally discovered a camera that can capture the aura on film. In the late 1940′s, the Russians began a serious research on the auric field and how it pertains to the physical body. It was not until the 70′s that Kirlian Photography began in the United States.
Kirlian photography uses a high voltage camera which provides a method for converting non-electrical properties of an object into electrical properties. These converted electrical fields are then captured on film by means of high-voltage spark discharges. Kirlian photography became the first real scientific method of capturing the glow or energy field surrounding a living object.
