1939, a Russian electrical technician named Semyon Kirlian discovered what is now known as Kirlian photography. Kirlian photography uses pulsed, high voltage frequencies to take pictures of the radiating energy
fields that surround all living things. The technique is also referred to as Gas Discharge Visualization, or GDV. Russian
scientists have performed a significant amount of research using Kirlian photography over the last 65 years, and have found
that all things exhibit the characteristics of an energy field, although living things have a much more vibrant energy field
than inanimate objects. Perhaps the most striking Kirlian images are those of leaves which have been cut in half, yet still show the complete, intact energy fields of the whole leaves.

Is it possible
that these Kirlian images are actually revealing the inner,
spiritual nature of things? The existence of the “Human Energy Field” has been a basic tenet of the healing arts for a very long time. The Hindus understood
the vital, life giving force which permeates and gives life to all things to be Prana, an understanding going back
5,000 years. The Chinese taught that this energy is called Chi, and understood that if the Chi is imbalanced
within an individual, the result is poor health.
