Aura Aura

Have you ever wanted to know what your aura looks like? Thanks to some incredible camera tech, getting your auric portrait taken is possible. The result is a photo with different colors emanating from the subject in the photo (you!). Depending on the colors present in your portrait, your aura will be indicative of different emotions and energies your body is giving off. Photographer Eileen Lee uses instant photographic film that is no longer produced and a double exposure process to capture a subject’s energy. Pretty cool!

By simply floating there without distractive sounds or other stimuli, you are forced to do nothing but look inside your own thoughts. Floating is good for many things, including reducing stress, managing pain, improving sleep, increasing creativity, increasing problem-solving ability and deep meditation.
