In the temporary use of language there is the word "Aura", but the meaning can be quite different. For many people, the Aura is only the radiance of human beings. For scientists, it is a concrete, existing energy field that surround living creatures. The Aura is formed by subtle color radiances which surround the body of a human being. These radiances can be perceived by a psychic. Each color signifies a certain vibration which has different meanings.
The Aura, which is connected with the activity of the chakra (Sanskrit for "energy wheel"), reflects the individual state of consciousness. In that case, the colors of the Aura give us information about the quality of consciousness, as well as one's emotions, thoughts, abilities and the vital energies of a person.
The history of Auras goes far back into the past. Natural tribes, the Christian Mystics of the Middle Ages, painters, and artists of all ages have shown the Aura in a radiant, shining ray of lights around human being, animal or plant. This information, which can be perceived by sensitive and psychic people, has been researched and proved scientifically in the last decades. Modern scientists measure the Aura as a electromagnetic field around living creatures.
The first Aura photo was made by the genius scientist Nicola Tesla in 1891. The Soviet Union did research in several tests in the 1960's. From 1975, the Aura was measured and photographed in universities with great precision worldwide.
In the 1970's and early 1980's, there were some "garage" companies in the area which is now known as Silicon Valley; Apple Computers is the most famous of them. While others were involved with information technology and were developing products for the age of spacecrafts which we know well today, one man looked into a different direction.
During this time, Guy Coggins discovered Kirlian Photography and was fascinated by it. So much so that he made his ability to see Auras, his wish to make alternative consciousness available for everybody, and merged it with his technical skills to develop the first Aura camera. Because of Guy's hard work, it wouldn't be possible to think of Aura photography without him; in fact, his second name is "Aura"! While he works on developing new Aura cameras, he works at his window to the soul while he improves his techniques even more.
Guy Coggins himself says:
"When I was starting with Aura photography many years ago I had a vision of that what would be possible with my technology. I have gotten enormous satisfaction from the knowledge that the Coggins Aura Camera has changed life everywhere on the world. Now my second vision has become also true.
"I knew that the human energy field is in constant motion and I wanted to be able to measure this energy and all its changes while they were happening. I knew that the ability to do this would be a powerful tool for healers, therapists and people of all kind."
The work Guy has done towards his Aura Camera, the most popular aura camera, has paved the way for this technology to be applied in new and amazing ways. Going from Interactive and the Aura Video Station all the way to the current WinAura computer software... it is now possible to not only make your usual photos of an Aura, but to display the Aura with computer technology on a computer screen, interactively.
