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
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
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.
