Christians speak of "The Light" with reverence from the creation when God said in Genesis "Let there be light" through references in Psalms and to Jesus as the Light Of The World.
New agers speak of the "Healing light" and psychics of the "aura".
A special camera has been developed that actually shows the colors of the aura.I had intended to talk about that today but got side tracked by some other thoughts about healing lights.I will define aura then say more about auras on Friday.
For now. the basic idea is , as you may know , based on the idea that everything in the Universe is just a vibration. Every atom, every part of an atom, every electron, every elementary particle , even our thoughts and consciousness are just vibrations. We may define the Aura as a vibration surrounding every material object.
This definition is sufficient for the purpose of reading Auras, providing that we can train ourselves to see Aura vibration. Aura around living (conscious) objects (people, plants ...) changes with time, sometimes very quickly.Aura around non-living object (stones, crystals, water...) is essentially fixed.
These energy fields are sometimes claimed to be documented by a rare form of photograph Kirian photography was developed two decades ago and has been improved through the years.
This energy field not only goes around you, but moves within your body as well. It is not just the outside of your body that is made of electromagnetic energies, every part of your and everything your experience in third dimension.
Your aura usually consist of more than one color at a time.
It can extend out very far or remain close to the body, which occurs when the person is protecting themselves form someone or something.
So with this focus on energy vibrations as color it is then light.Our individual light.
Sunlight has been used as a treatment since the time of Ancient Greece.Hippocrates had it included in his treatment plans,
You probably also have heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).Aptly named as it is depression occurring when sunlight is limited and treated with light therapy.This was only identified in the 1990's as a clinical diagnosis.
If you are wondering what all this is leading toward,it is the thought of the remarkable healing potential of light both physical and psychologically of our own body,our spiritual essence.
Maybe our scientists are moving more toward understanding the physiological,mental and spiritual light within usand around us.
Having been out of the main readings of Medicine and health research for over a decade noe,I was startled when looking into healing light to find an article from the Medical College of Wisconsin about using light in treatment.It says
"Fans of the Star Trek television shows can recall many stirring scenes of medical officers treating patients without drugs or surgery, using instead a device the size of a cell phone that sends out light rays to "miraculously" heal wounds and cure disease before their very eyes.
Now, the use of light emitting diodes (LED) in the practice of medicine has moved well beyond science fiction and into the real world. Soldiers injured by lasers in combat, astronauts in space and children in cancer wards are already benefiting from the healing properties of near-infrared light in ways that could only be imagined a few years ago. Several research projects at the Medical College of Wisconsin are at the center of LED treatment development and the application of new technology to a wide range of injury and illness.
"The potential is quite endless," said Harry T. Whelan, MD, Medical College Bleser Professor of Neurology, Pediatrics and Hyperbaric Medicine. "I
Light emitting diodes - commonly used for clock displays and in many other electronic devices - produce near-infrared light, a form of energy just outside the visible range. Cells exposed to LED light in this range have been found to grow 150% to 200% faster than cells not given and LED "bath" because, in simple terms, the light arrays speed up the healing process by increasing energy inside the cells.
"While not all cells react to near-infrared light in the same way, Dr. Whelan and others anticipate testing LED therapy in other areas such as organ and tissue regeneration, stroke, spinal cord injury, brain tumors and Parkinson's disease.
(LED) might make the difference between a small stroke or a large stroke, or between Christopher Reeve being paralyzed for life or walking again, or between someone having a tiny little blind spot from where the laser first hit to being completely blind because of the spreading injury around the entirety of the retina. Those are the differences we'd like to make in neurology, and those things can have spin-offs beyond military combat casualty care to things like diabetic retinopathy, diabetic ulcers, other tissues that can be affected, metabolic diseases..."
I found this fascinating.Will talk more about Auras and healing another time.
