Colourlight and science

Coloured light has been used for thousands of years to cure diseases and disorders. After a break during the industrial revolution, it found its way again into medicine and spirituality in the 20th century. However, a lot has changed: light therapy is no longer a mysterious and intuitive activity. There is now a large supporting field of rational science present, which confirms it!
Albert Einstein was one of the first scientists to prove that light (even in small quantities) could have a significant influence on matter. He proved that light waves (photons) released a deluge of electrons from metal when brought into contact with it.

After Einstein there have been many other researchers, who have observed that light waves cause electrons to detach themselves from the object, which is exposed to light. When an electron absorbs a photon (light wave), the electron jumps into a faster orbit with a higher frequency. And the other way around: when electrons release photons, then they take up their old “resting” position again, in a slower orbit with a lower frequency. And all this happens in a fraction of a second, when an arbitrary object enters a ray of light.

In the 1980s it was the biophysicist Fritz-Albert Popp, who was nominated for the Nobel Prize for his proof that humans are beings of light. He showed that all natural organisms (including humans!) emit light at the cellular level and that all organic life forms absorb and process light internally. Relatively weak, color-coded signals of light emitted by the cells form the basis for all communication between the cells in living organisms.

This was confirmed at the end of the 1980s by the scientific team of Russian professor Kaznecheyev: they proved that the human body has light channels, which run parallel to the 12 meridians, as known in traditional Chinese medicine. They also showed that the points that absorb the light correspond exactly to the acupuncture points. You could say that the meridians, just like glass fiber, form a light transport system, but then in the body. Just as the light in glass fiber technology is used to store information from computers and to make it available all over the world without loss of time, so the meridians form a similar transport or conduction system for light in our body.

This was also demonstrated in the same period by Peter Mandel and Dr. Helmut Schimmel from another research area. With advanced diagnostic tools they were able to demonstrate that coloured light administered to the surface of the body (where meridians are located) sends an energy impulse through the meridians, which significantly affected organs and endocrine glands far away and deep inside the body. They also found that each colour generates a different impulse with a different effect on the body. Red generates an impulse that stimulates, while green evokes relaxation.

Besides light that enters our body from outside and travels through it, light is also generated inside our body. This has been known in mysticism for a long time, but it has only recently been scientifically substantiated. Based on the theoretical models of Dr. Herbert Fröhlich (he calculated from his experience in quantum physics, that the DNA in the cells should give an ultra fine light signal) it was again Dr. Popp, who provided the evidence. With specially developed equipment he succeeded in photographing the light emitted by a cell.

Even later he succeeded in capturing the flashes of light of a group of cells on video. He experimented with a glass separation between 2 groups of cells with the result that the communication between the 2 separate cell groups remained intact! Each cell informs its environment as a kind of radio transmitter through the information in the flashes of light that it regularly transmits. The cells communicate with each other via these electromagnetic frequencies. And when added together they generate an electromagnetic field (aura or light matrix), which is powerful enough to be felt outside the physical body.

In recent years Valerie Hunt of the University of California in Los Angeles has developed specific methods to study this electromagnetic field. She measures this light matrix and has shown that this field shows chaotic fluctuations days before a clinical picture can be determined in the old-fashioned way on the physical body. In other words: conditions are, before they manifest themselves physically, present outside the physical body as energetic disturbances in the light matrix and can be treated there (outside the physical body), provided they are detected in time. In our body the cells continuously reprogram themselves on the basis of what they find in our immediate environment.

If our environment is light and pleasant, our cells program us for light and health. If our environment is chaotic and busy, our cells become tense. They will initially be set up to reflect this pressure and keep it out (in the acute stage of the disease or condition), but if it persists they will reprogram themselves to survive the pressure (and then enter the chronic stage). Our light matrix not only controls what happens in our bodies, but it also creates an atmosphere around us. This atmosphere attracts energy at certain frequencies and repels energy at other frequencies. Or: certain people can immediately attract us and others cannot.

Although nobody has yet managed to decipher the meaning of the flashes of light between the cells, it is clear that there is a meaning. In fact, everything indicates that light is the language of the body. The language of light exchanges messages between cells and organs and enables them to function in coherence. Perhaps one day we will be better able to understand the silent conversations in our bodies!

“We are still on the threshold of fully understanding the complex relationship between light and life, but we can now say, emphatically that the function of our entire metabolism is dependent on light”. (Fritz Albert Popp)
