~ Kirlian Photography ~
Everything and everyone has an auric field. These can often be seen by those who are clairvoyant. Most of us are not aware of the auric field, which is egg shaped on a human being, wider at the top than at the bottom. Perhaps a case of what you can’t see, touch or feel can’t be proved!
In 1939 a Russian electrician, Semyon Kirlian was called to a university hospital to repair an instrument used in electro-therapy. He saw that when the patient received treatment with the machine, there was a small flash of light between the electrodes. When he tried to take photographs of this phenomenon he found it was possible only by inserting a plate directly between the 'spark' and his hand. When it was developed, his photograph produced a glowing image of his outstretched fingers. Kirlian built his own machine to generate high frequency electrical fields with an oscillation of two hundred thousand sparks per second between two electrodes. Although inert objects showed no image, every living thing he experimented with showed its own aura. Kirlian said 'In living things, we see signals of the inner state of the organism reflected in the brightness, dimness and colour of the flares. The inner life activities of the human being are written in these 'light' hieroglyphs.'
For the next twenty-five years Kirlian, with his wife tried to perfect their apparatus. Many famous people from electronics experts to physicians and government ministers witnessed the results and were impressed. However, nothing happened until 1966 when suddenly Kirlian’s work came into its own. A laboratory with all the latest equipment was set up along with research projects.

Since then the use of Kirlian photography has become universally known and continued to be developed. The auric fields can now be proved to be there...they can be seen. It is rather like the effect of electrostatic from carpets and cars etc. few of us have seen it, but in certain conditions we feel it. In Kirlian photography when the film is developed, an aura like a halo can be seen around the object or person. Although the results are real, the processes are still not fully understood. These photographs can show several factors such as stress, ill health in living organisms, and the state of your soul. It is analogous to Spiritual Healing which can also be felt but not seen. There are a number of variables that need to be considered by the Kirlian photographer when interpretting or planning her pictures. The voltage and frequency of the electricity used to create the corona are perhaps the most important and directly controllable elements. As with traditional photography, exposure times and media sensitivity must also be taken into consideration.
In the early seventies and eighties there were some 'garage' companies in the area which is now known as Silicon Valley and Apple Computer 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. In the 3rd decade in which Guy Coggins has been producing aura cameras, we know realize that it wouldn't be possible to think of aura photography with out him.
