First Aura Photo Experience (2022)

I’ve been wanting an aura photo for the past 2.5 years. I got the idea from one of my biggest spiritual inspirations:

Imani Cohen (@TheHoodHealer on Instagram) after she posted her personal aura photos.

And I’ve been obsessed ever since!

Initially, I wanted to go to ‘Magic Jewelry NYC’ in New York, NY but due to a change of plans, I opted to try a local place first. I searched Google and found the closest spiritual shop and landed upon ‘Aura Photo US‘ in Crofton, Maryland. And yes, I drove 56 miles (round-trip) JUST for this photo.

What is Aura Photography?

In simple terms, it’s a photo of your energy. It’s a visual representation of how we feel on an energetic level.

Aura photography, though, has been around since the 1970s, when Guy Coggins invented the camera that captures the essence of our energy and what we’re putting out into the world. “We all know what we are going through in our lives, and what we are working on with ourselves,” Lee said. “However, to be able to visually see this in something like a photograph is incredibly powerful, as we are such visual creatures.” (

How Does Aura Photography Work?

Typically, aura photographers will use a camera called an AuraCam. The cameras look like a box, with two smaller ones the subject places their hands on for the photo. The smaller boxes are metal and laced with silver, allowing a biometric feedback system to create the colors. “The handplates sense the vibrational frequency that is coming from you, through the meridian points in your hands, and sends all that information to the camera,” Lee said.(

Aura Colors + Their Meanings.

The Seven Chakra’s.

“The term “chakra” means “disc” or “wheel” in Sanskrit and applies to the body’s energy centres. These spinning energy wheels or discs relate to specific nerve cells and key organs. Your chakras must be open, or balanced, in order to function optimally. If one of them becomes blocked, you may suffer emotional or physical symptoms associated with that chakra. (

  1. Root chakra — base of the spine — red
  2. Sacral chakra — just below the navel — orange
  3. Solar Plexus chakra — stomach area — yellow
  4. Heart chakra — center of the chest — green
  5. Throat chakra — base of the throat — blue
  6. Third Eye chakra — forehead, above between the eyes — indigo
  7. Crown chakra — top of the head — violet (

Booking + Costs.

The booking process was fast and easy. I booked an appointment via email with Tammy. She was very kind and knowledgeable. The cost for the aura photo with interpretation was $40 which is very affordable. My aura photo appointment was on Saturday October 8th, 2022.

Capturing the photo.

The process of taking the actual photo was relatively fast as well. I sat down across from Tammy at her desk and she snapped a photo of me with her webcam (which was kinda disappointing because I had my heart set on getting a cute aesthetic Polaroid picture). After she took my photo, she asked me to quickly guess what colors I thought my aura would be. I guessed yellow, orange, or reddish.

Then, I was instructed to close my eyes and place my left hand onto a magnetic metal machine that picks up on energy. I was guided into a relaxed meditative state while doing 1-2 minutes of deep belly breaths.

My Aura Report.

The first thing Tammy said when my results came up was “Well, I can tell you’re definitely an empath!” And that’s when I knew this was the real deal. She then proceeded to tell me all about myself (some things I already knew/felt). She was so on point it gave me chills.

  • Aura Color(s): White (most dominant- in the center), Violet and Indigo (above my head), Yellow (right side/Yang), and Green (left side/Yin).
  • Aura Size= 4. Small Aura (0-40) Indicates low energy level. Others might perceive me as introverted or with low physical energy. Meaning- I need to create a stronger radiance around me and increase aura power.
  • 52% Yin (feminine), 18% Yang (masculine). Too much feminine energy means I’m not really getting things done, especially goal wise. I need to start finishing the projects I start.
  • My crown chakra is the most activated, followed by my third eye. Unfortunately, my root and sacral chakras are blocked. This is a warning that I really need to ground myself.
  • Mind= 52%. My focus is mainly on creativity, mental and emotional expression, and communication.
  • Spirit= 21% I need to connect more with spirit. Focus on personal development, feelings, intuition, spirituality and my inner qualities.
  • Body= 27%. I need to focus on physical reality, results, and body related activities. I gotta activate that sacral chakra real bad!
  • Energy Levels (mental, emotional, physical, and intuitive) = Surprisingly, my energy levels are balanced and heightened at a score of 700000/100000. I’m in the extremely high vibration range but more grounding and focus is needed.
  • Emotiometer= Somewhat turbulent. Very emotional and sensitive.
  • Overall mind/body condition= I’m more stressed than relaxed.

Final Thoughts.

After I was given my detailed aura interpretation, I was given some homework to do based on which areas I’m struggling in.

For example, I want to be in a more relaxed state of mind than a stressed state of mind or at least be balanced. I plan to change that by practicing more stress management techniques, continue to limit my time on social media, spend more time in nature, find some new hobbies, etc.

In addition, I need to tap into my masculine energy more often, balance out my emotions, and get a little more into my body and spirit- which will help activate that sacral chakra!

That being said, I went ahead and did some research on how to heal my root and sacral chakra and this is what I found:

Root Chakra Healing (Red)

  • Problems associated with a blocked root chakra: anxiety, chronic fear, instability, and a lack of physical energy, or a sense of being ungrounded.
  • Walk barefoot in the grass, dig your toes in the sand or simply spend time in nature.
  • Eat tomatoes, beetroot, parsnips, onions, radishes, pomegranates, apples, and red berries.
  • Affirmation- “(I AM) grounded, safe, and secure. I am stable, protected, and healthy.”
  • Physical action: Sexuality.
  • Emotional action: Sensuality.
  • Spiritual action: Security.
  • Mental action: Stability.
  • Chakra awakening chant: “L-A-A-A-A-M”.

Sacral Chakra Healing (Orange)

  • Problems associated with a blocked sacral chakra: intimacy issues, creative blocks, fertility problems, joint problems or an ability to manage change.
  • Spend time close to the water, the ocean, lakes, and rivers. Don’t be afraid to jump in and go swimming.
  • Eat oranges, carrots, melons, mangoes, nuts and seeds.
  • Affirmations- (I FEEL) I am beautiful, creative and unique. I am a sensual and sexual being. I am able to enjoy the pleasures of life. I allow myself more abundance and pleasure than ever before.
  • Physical action: Reproduction.
  • Emotional action: Joy.
  • Spiritual action: Enthusiasm.
  • Mental action: Creativity.
  • Chakra awakening chant: “V-A-A-A-A-M”.

On the way out of my session with Tammy, I was provided with a handout paper report on my results plus email attachments of the more in-depth version plus information going deeper into the chakras and auras.

I’m so excited to see what my aura reading will look like in 6-12 months from now. Maybe I’ll make my way to New York for the next one!
