I will take you on a journey for healing with lighting. The journey may take unexpected turns and it will always end with new information on how to stay healthy and how best to protect your health.
So buckle up and be open to improvisation.
For those who like order, guidelines, checklists...we'll have these dispersed
through the series of LightHeal Blogs.
Let's begin - The big bus with tinted glass, pulled along the sidewalk at about 9pm. Keep in mind that melatonin or the human sleep hormone, starts production after 7pm, definitely at 8pm, and picks-up by 9pm. The folks on this bus, had no idea about the process taking place in their bodies. Bowed over their laptops (on the way to home) and illuminated by blue and green LEDs located 10 inches from their eyes.
As the bus glided forward through the intersection, I couldn't help but see a striking parallel, the semi-dark warehouses of acres with green houses, growing plants under controlled lighting. In horticulture for years now, LED lights of precise spectrum (purple-blue-green-red color) have been used to stimulate plants growth, to speed blooming, to obtain gigantic size products that are unseen in Nature. We are putting plants to work extra hard and produce extra big, we trick the plants with controlled light spectrum and intensity. Would these products taste the same as the ones grown in nature and under the sun, would these products have the same nutrients as the ones formed under the natural cycle of light and dark?
Some horticulturists talk about controlling the photons intensity and how many light particles hit the plants leaves (think of human retina and the skin as envelope of the human body) so that plants are not burned.
That night at 9pm, as the bus cautiously glided along, seeing the young faces (could have been my kids) illuminated by laptop screens and the unstoppable presence of blue and green LED laser beams, I felt a squeeze of my heart. Will we use LED technology humanly or manipulatively?
LightHeal token #1: at 9pm - use warm light coming from behind a shade, like a table lamp with warm color shade, do not use lights from the ceiling, keep the ceiling and upper wall surfaces relatively dark, illuminate surfaces at lower than the eye level, again table lamps is the best if you want to go to sleep
