An Auragraph is a lovely and personal piece of artwork intuitively drawn by the artist who tunes into the sitters’ aura. The term Auragraph is attributed to the pioneer of these unique artworks, Harold Sharpe, who himself believed they were inspired by his spirit guide, describing these works as “an artistic diagram of the human aura.” Very little is known of his life, only that he has left for us a beautiful legacy to follow, and happily there is now a great revival in this form of spirit art.
Auragraphs are very similar to a Mandala, although the Auragraph is more personal, less symmetrical and free-flowing with the colours and patterns all having a meaning.
There are many different ways to do an Auragraph, the most common being circular or oval, however they can be done in any pattern that inspires the artist or sitter, with each Auragraph containing its own unique style and symbolism.
Although the colours and symbolism are open to the individuals’ interpretation, the artist will generally give an overview of the initial insights and images they received. It is for the individual to personalise the symbolism and intuitively know what feels right for them. Each of us being free to communicate and understand that which reflects our own spirit and personality.
The energies and colours surrounding each individual are known as the aura, the density and vibration being different for each one of us. It is a field of energy radiating from our whole body, expressing our spiritual, emotional and physical being. The colours and shades ever-changing as they reflect our thoughts and actions.
This too is where we see the halo, the light surrounding each person; think also about the amazing experiments of Kirlian photography, know that this energy, the Chi, emanates from all living sources.
Science is slowly revealing to us what we have always inherently known; only the words and explanations vary in the telling. Finally we have the evidence that our thoughts consist of electrical impulses. The sensitive picks up on these impulses and transfers the images received into the artwork. We are all sensitives at varying levels and we are all reading each other on a complex multi-levelled system in all our interactions, auragraphs are just one way of expressing this gift we have.
