Healing power of : Light. (16)

Groundbreaking research involving primary school students, has demonstrated that various light concentrations and colours improve the children's ability to concentrate.

We can't see the full spectrum of the sun. Our visible light is a built up from the colors of the rainbow, making it 'white' light. But most of the sun's radiated energy is beyond our perceptions as the above picture shows.

Since October 2009, each classroom at Veltvest primary school in the town of Wintelre in the south of the Netherlands has been equipped with lights of different colours and intensities. These have been defined as standard (normal) light, energy-enhancing light, concentration light and restful light.
Pupils who studied under lamps with an intense blue tint achieved test scores that were 8.7 percent higher than those who studied under normal lighting. After a month, their results were 13.7 percent higher.
Headteacher Jane van der Heijden: "In the morning, we start with a bright light to help increase energy and we mostly end the day with a warm peaceful light which can accompany a nice talk or creative activity. Both the children and the teachers are positive about the range of lighting."
The research is a joint effort by the University of Twente's Educational Organisation and Management team and electronics giant Philips and has been dubbed SchoolVision.
Color is simply a form of visible light, of electromagnetic energy. All color spectrums reflected in the rainbow carry their own unique healing properties.

We are in a world where color dominates our lives, from reading signs on the road to seeing if fruit is ripe to eat. Colors eventually affect our moods, although we tend to use and experience color everyday in our lives without even realize it.

Color therapy, also known as chromotherapy, is often facilitated in the healing rooms of alternative health practitioners. Color therapy is classified as a vibrational healing modality. Vibrational medicine incorporates the use of chi energies within living organisms such as plants, gemstones and crystals, water, sunlight, and soundwaves.
A therapist trained in color therapy applies light and color in the form of tools, visualization, or verbal suggestion to balance energy in the areas of our bodies that are lacking of balanced cellular vibration, be it physically, emotionally, spiritually, or mentally.
The effects of colors:

  • RED stimulates brain wave activity, increases heart rate, respirations and blood pressure, excites sexual glands. It energizes the first chakra (coccyx). It warms us and awakens us physically and energizes our blood. It is a good color to wear when we have colds and poor circulation. Too much red can over stimulate and make some illnesses worse. High blood pressure is an indicator of too much red energy in the body. It is a color for war, prosperity, fire, and rising sun. Spiritually it is the root color of fire and connects us to our physical self.
