The Aura Shower
Since 1997, a multi-disciplinary team of people involved in the
fields of the environment, health and design has been working to develop a technology
that they believe has real potential in the worlds of health and well being.
Sponsored by the Template Foundation UK, this team has created what has been
named ‘The Aura Shower’, which works to clean and regulate the electro-magnetic
fields of a person using one of nature’s greatest cleansing agents - running
water. In July this year, the aura shower was constructed and is undergoing
trials at the St Elizabeth’s Centre for people with severe epilepsy.
asked James Ash, the original creator of the aura shower, about the principles
behind its design. ‘The basis of the technology of the aura shower is
to do with the understandings that relate to the electro-magnetic field that
surrounds a person, known as the aura, and its three levels of radiation. As
we go about our lives so this radiation field, extending approximately 90cm
out from the body, can house energies or become contaminated in ways that can
adversely affect all aspects of our lives - from how we think, to stress, stamina
levels and general health. In the same way that we care for our bodies and try
to keep them clear from disease and dirt, so we can offer the same care towards
our energy systems’.
‘Have you ever noticed how invigorating it is to sit by a moving stream
or a waterfall? This is due to the fact that water is a natural cleansing agent
that can draw to itself and remove unwanted or unused energy, leaving us feeling
more intact and cooler. It is this principle that has given rise to the aura
shower, working on the radiations that comes from the bones, the blood and the
The construction of the aura shower is simple, with willow branches holding
three overhead pipes that are each aligned to a different level of the aura.
By turning on the water supply for each pipe, they release a shower of water
upon each respective level of radiation. Thus the energy fields surrounding
a person gets cleansed without the person themselves getting wet.
continued, ‘When we look to the countryside or nature, behind the incredible
display of life we witness, there is a very definite and exact set of natural
laws that govern and influence how things work, and I believe we instinctively
know that there is a mighty intelligence at play. Sometimes I feel that we are
moving further and further away from the appreciation of and benefits that a
close association with the natural worlds affords. We run to the countryside
in between bouts of stress, but very rarely consider, extract and apply the
great wisdoms and learning that nature demonstrates’.
Much of our lives these days are spent surrounded by machinery and technology
that radiates very high levels of coarse electro-magnetic emissions. We are
bombarded by radiations from computers, refrigerators, electrical pylons, engines,
mobile phone masts, and so much more. There is very insubstantial research being
undertaken to explore fully the influence that these radiations have upon our
general health, but I believe that its effects are far greater than we give
‘Our own researches have clearly shown that the condition of our aura
is directly related to our state of health, and that the more technology we
employ as a generation, the more our energy systems become affected. There is
much more research to do in this area, but it is not a subject that we can any
longer afford to dismiss’.
‘So, as I mentioned, consider again the fact of water, and what a marvellous
cleansing, regulating and healing substance it is. It is unlikely that anyone
will deny the feeling of well being that can accompany a shower at the end of
a hard day. Likewise, sitting in a garden surrounded by plants, trees and a
pond with a fountain can also induce a profound sense of enhancement. And yet,
we seem unwilling to bring these understandings into, as an example, our working
environments, health facilities, or indeed school rooms. The aura shower is
a small attempt to bring nature’s technologies into an environment where
it can bring benefits to those that need it’.
The aura shower has been about four years in the development stage and is a
continuing research, with many skilled technicians in various fields being involved
in its design and many hundreds of volunteers testing its effectiveness. The
aura shower being used in St Elizabeth’s Centre incorporates specific
plants, slate flooring and willow branches and each item has a specific reason
and application within the overall design.
James was very impressed by the staff at St Elizabeth’s and their willingness
to explore new ways of helping those within their care. ‘Their devotion
is outstanding and I only hope that the aura shower may bring some further easement,
well being and relief to those who use it’.
