Healing Light Lifts Your Energy

Healing Light Colours

Using light and colour as healing therapies is an ancient practice that spans most of the cultures of the world.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

Anyone who has suffered from Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, knows how important exposure to sunlight is, both physically and psychologically. People who are depressed for any reason often feel better almost instantly when they go outside and receive the healing benefits of the full spectrum of light provided by the sun. For those countries where winter sunlight is scarce, light therapy is used to elevate moods and stop the seasonal depression that plagues many people.

Ancient Civilisations

In ancient Egypt, temples were built around the concept of light and colour healing. Gems were placed into the walls so that as the sunlight shone through the gems, the resulting colour was used to heal specific ailments.

The ancient Greek city of Heliopolis – City of the Sun – was likewise famous for its light healing temples, where colours were used for healing various medical problems.

And for thousands of years, the Chinese, Indians and Tibetans have also used colours to heal. Healing light has only been in use in the West for not much more than a century, but we are finally catching up with the ancient wisdom of light-centered healing.

How are light healing and colour healing different and how are they related?

Light therapy, solar therapy and colour therapy share a common bond in that they are all based on the spectrum of light.

Colour is a product of light – it is actually nothing more than the visible spectrum of light – and so the essential concept is the same: certain frequencies of light (each of the colours represent unique frequencies) have certain healing properties. So whether you use lightbulbs of a certain light quality; or go outside into the sunshine; or use colour in your surroundings – you are, if the right type of light is used, promoting healing of your particular ailment.

Spas use healing light and colour therapy, sometimes in conjunction with therapeutic waters, massage and other body work, and the concept is slowly creeping into modern healthcare facilities.

Healing Light Treatments

Today, full-spectrum lights are used to treat SAD in Northern countries where sunlight is too brief in winter. Blue lights are used to cure neonatal jaundice.

Even acupuncturists are using specifically-colored lasers to stimulate acupuncture points in the body, rather than needles. This practice of “laserpuncture” stimulates cell growth, reduces pain, improves circulation and generally accelerates natural healing. Light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, are used to help heal scar tissue, stimulate live tissue and speed healing of wounds.

Many skin disorders can be cured with healing light; as can poor circulation, tissue damage, inflammation, headaches and pain. Healing light has even been used to stimulate hair follicles to prevent balding!

Hospital rooms, hotel rooms, therapy rooms and other healing locations can benefit greatly from having the type of light that promotes healing. Harsh fluorescent lights may be economical and provide adequate light for detail work (such as surgery), but they are not at all calming or soothing. Anyone who has ever been hospitalized can attest to a constant desire for the nursing staff to please turn those lights off!

A healthcare practitioner can speed up a patient’s healing by using healing light. And the patient can do his or her own healing by using the power of their mind.

Healing Light Meditation

Anyone can meditate, and visualize sunlight, and ‘feel’ its full-spectrum healing light permeate the body. And visualizing certain colours – the visible spectrum of light – can be used to heal ailments in organs that, to the individual, intuitively resonate with that colour.

If you’re depressed or stressed, go outside and grab some free healing light from the sun. If the sun is not cooperating by hiding behind clouds, you can invest in a few full-spectrum lightbulbs to have around the house, and lift your mood on the darkest of days (both environmentally and emotionally).
