Auragraphs

Yesterday in the post there was an envelope addressed to me, an envelope which contained money, always nice 🙂 and a request for me to do an Auragraph.

Now one of the things I do as part of my work is to offer distance readings for people and one form of distance reading is that of the Auragraph. I love doing auaragraphs but don’t do them very often possibly because many people may know what they are. They are always done as distance work as they do take me some time to complete and probably even longer if the client was watching me work. I think I might find it much harder to channel the drawing if I had the client present as I do need to be able to focus and be aware of what is taking shape. I love that I sometimes have no idea what I am drawing until it takes form on the paper, that the meaning of it and any colours used will become clear as the auragraph forms. In many ways when I am working it reminds me of the magic paintings I had as a child, the ones where there was nothing  and then when I painted with water images would begin to appear. At other times though I will have an image or colours in my head but only when the auragraph takes shape do I start to understand why I am seeing these. Like I said magic 🙂

Every auragraph I do is different and unique to the person I am reading for. They carry information about the present, the potential future and sometimes the past, the energies or archetypes that are around supporting and guiding and all come with an accompanying written explanation of what I have been given to pass on. They are always drawn in a circle as this represents the whole, the whole person as well as past, present and future.

An Auragraph is lovely to have done for yourself but also make good presents. Some people frame them and display them, others use them as a tool for meditation and some just take them as a reading that sums up where they are now.

Auragraphs were first created by the medium Harold Sharp who used the term Auragraph to describe what he saw as ‘artistic diagrams of the human aura.’

I became aware of Auragraphs in a slightly unusual way when I was on a course at the Arthur Findlay College in Stanstead, UK. Arthur Findlay is a spiritualist college with a small museum depicting the ‘World History of ‘Modern Spiritualism and ‘Mediumship’ and during my first time at the college I paid a visit. At one point in the museum, when I stopped in front of a photograph of a gentleman, I experienced a strong rush of energy flowing into me. I moved to the side, it stopped, I moved back and there it was again. I left the museum, found one of the friends I was there with and dragged her in to see if it happened to her which it didn’t. So puzzled yet fascinated by what I was experiencing I spent the rest of the time stepping back and forth on the spot where I had this amazing energy running through me.

Back at home some time afterwards I was looking to see other courses that the college ran and came across one on Auragraphs. ‘I can do those ‘ I said quite confidently, without having any idea of what they were and then proceeded to prove I could, before looking them up to find out what they actually were.

Fast forward to the following year which saw me back at the college and of course back in the museum. I returned to the spot I had stood in the previous year and there in front of me was the photo and this time I looked at the name ‘Harold Sharp’.  Behind the photograph was a book and beside it was a label stating that the book contained the auragraphs of  Harold Sharp. It also said that the book could not be touched but I went and explained and was allowed to carefully look at the work of the man whom I am sure enegetically connected me with the idea of auragraphs.

I do Auragraph readings for anyone anywhere in the world. They are produced on good quality watercolour paper with watercolour pencils and are always sent by post along with the accompanying reading. For more information do check out ‘Readings’ on my website

When would I decline to read for or work with a client?

I have decided to use Pagan Blog Prompts on Facebook to keep me blogging this year. Without a challenge last year I found it much harder and as many of you reading this will know I drifted back and forth for most the time rather than posting with anything like consistency.

The promo this week was concerning whether there were instances where you would decline to read Tarot for anyone. The original blog post that generated this prompt can be read here at Luna Sage.

I actually don’t read tarot at all nor in fact do I use cards for readings, apart from drawing some for a yearly spread, which is another story completely as I have yet to do one for the coming 12 calendar months. I do though read for others through Spirit Guide Readings and Auragraph Readings. If you follow the links you can find out more about what these entail but suffice to say that they do involve me in reading for other people so follow the same principles as Tarot.

Having given the question some thought I would decline to read for anyone in the following circumstances:

  • If the person was under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs – this is a premise I follow for all of my work and I would refuse a client for anything under these circumstance.
  • If I had drunk alcohol – again I never work with anyone if I have had an alcoholic drink of any kind.

Actually now I am writing this I have realised that the criteria for declining to read for someone are simply part of my general ethics so would apply for energy or shamanic healing as well as to readings. So let me change the question here to”

‘When would I decline to work with a client’?

The answer, apart from the reasons already stated is:

  • If I was too tired to read for someone
  • If I was unwell and or my energy was very low
  • If the client was asking me to do something that was outside of my capabilities
  • If I felt at risk from the client for any reason
  • If it seemed the client was not benefiting from the work we were doing together
  • If I was being asked to diagnose

I am sure there are other reasons I have overlooked but luckily I am fortunate to attract great clients and students and so can count on one hand the number of times I have refused someone. With distance work including readings if I am having a ‘bad’ day then I can usually adjust the work or reading to a day when I am ok again. In fact I often have to wait to do a distance reading until the person’s guide(s) are ready to work with me, our conversely I have been known to be dragged into a reading by people’s guides much sooner than planned due to their impatience to work 🙂

Like the author of the original blog, I know I have a choice as to when and if I work and to whom I work with. This is healthy and means that I am respecting myself and m,y own safety as well as that of my client.
