We were out walking the dog last year when my husband decided for some strange reason that she needed to learn to jump and that he would demonstrate the idea. There was a pole close by that was used for horse practice; a horizontal telegraph pole so not particularly high. He took off at a run and as he leapt so the highly confused and excited dog shot through his legs and he fell. He landed on the pole with a very loud crack and I was sure he had broken a hip at least. A lady was walking about 100 metres away and she heard the noise and came running. Husband lay very still, dog still thinking he was playing, afraid to move because he was also sure he had broken at least his ribs. When he finally got up he was sore but nothing broken. I covered the area with Arnica ointment and the next day there was no bruise but it was too painful to touch the skin. We used the Light colour machine for 9 minutes and the area that he could reach became completely pain free although where he could not reach was still very sore. Because of the difference my sceptical mate could not doubt that it had worked wonderfully. Painful way to prove a point but that is the way of the sceptic!
I have used Colour Light Therapy over the years and found it to have amazing healing abilities. It can be used for any condition with beneficial effects.
An old tried and tested method
Light and colour has been used for healing for millennia by many different cultures. Recorded history takes us right back to the Ancient Greeks and Egyptians where they separated the colour and used each one with light to heal different conditions. The healers discovered that light passing through coloured fabric or glass had the ability to speed up the healing process.
Those working with plant life have found that light in the form of specific colours gives vegetables, fruits and herbs their nutritional and nourishing qualities as colour is the active ingredient in vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in those foods. Research with plants also indicates how coloured light affects plant health; when specific colours of plastic sheeting are placed on the soil around the plants, pests can be discouraged and plant growth and flavour are enhanced.
Native cultures also discovered that the colour of plants determined their healing qualities; for example, blood conditions were treated with red flowers and herbs. Experiments today with red and blue light show that red will increase blood pressure while blue light reduces it. The same applies to those colours when shone on the soles of the feet to regulate weight; it has shown that red reduces weight while blue increases it. Hmm, I do love blue so maybe that’s the answer and it’s not the chocolate at all!
So why does it work?
The relationship between light and health begins in our eyes. When light enters the eyes, it travels through the brain directly to the body’s ‘biological clock’ located within the brain’s brain known as the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus shares the light-activated information it receives with the body’s master gland, the Pineal, which regulates our vital functions by linking the nervous and endocrine systems. Acting as the body’s light meter, the pineal gland communicates data about the time of day, time of year, spectral characteristics and the earth’s electromagnetic field to every cell of the body simultaneously. In doing so, each cell orchestrates its internal function in line with the ever-changing flow of Nature.
We each have a natural receptivity to certain frequencies of coloured light and a resistance to others. When applied through the eyes and the skin, coloured light has been shown to positively affect the mind and body function to recalibration with the true basis of our health and wellness. It has been shown to have a huge beneficial effect for depression and is used extensively for Seasonal Affective Disorder, SAD Syndrome where the lack of light in the winter in many countries cause another form of depression.
Light is nourishment to the body
We are made of light and light is the language by which our cells speak to one another. The DNA within the centre of the nucleus of each cell of the body emits photons (light). When this light reaches the crystalline structure of the cell wall, it is greatly amplified. The light radiated from the cell naturally congregates with similar cells because they share the same frequency. These groups of cells form organs and the other structures in our body, each resonating with a specific frequency and colour. So our cells are crystallized light!
Light stimulates and supports the important endocrine system as well as the immune system and organs of the body. The visible spectrum, the rainbow colours, as well as infrared and ultraviolet light are essential for the complete health of the body but when we are outside, we are told we must wear glasses and sun screen. Sensible advice, of course, but these block some portion of the full spectrum of light which starves a part of our body. So, it is necessary to take in sunlight through the eyes every day; not gazing at direct sunlight just wear a hat to create shade and take off those sunglasses for just 20 minutes a day!
So how can we help our body to receive enough full spectrum light?
A simple way you can do for yourself is to replace just one bulb in a lamp in your home with a full spectrum light bulb and sit within its range of light while you are watching TV or reading. A normal bulb which no blue, dark blue or purple shades whilst the full spectrum bulb gives the body the benefits of the whole colour range.
Another option is a Colour Light Therapy session. I have used it to get rid of sinus, aching joints, headaches, bruises and, even when I feel ‘’under the weather’ for no particular reason, it perks me up immediately by releasing the feel-good hormone Serotonin.
We are lucky to have Andrew Barrett at The Purple Dragonfly who, by using a colour light machine that shines light through coloured filters and/or crystals, can bring your body back to good health through natural means. Not only does the process keep your body balanced it aids with the dissipation of pain and many other symptoms. His one hour sessions benefit your health and are deeply relaxing. Why not give it a try!
