It's official folks: our bodies emit light. Not that we can see it with the naked eye, mind you. Using special cameras called cryogenic charge-coupled devices, or CCD cameras, Japanese researchers at Tohoku Institute of Technology and Kyoto University found that the human body emits biophotons, also known as ultraweak photon emissions (UPE). These emissions are 1000 times lower than the sensitivity of the naked eye. Even though we cannot see them ourselves, we can measure the light in terms of either waves or particles which are part of the electromagnetic spectrum (380-780 nm) that can be detected using special equipment.
It has also been shown that these emissions are not simply a mechanical bodily process, but they can actually be influenced by intention, defined as "a directed thought to perform a determined action." When subjects in a darkened room imagined light, their output of photon emissions increased significantly. Directed thought has been shown to manifest itself in terms of electric and magnetic energy, which produces an "ordered flux" of photons. Our intentions operate as highly coherent frequencies that are capable of changing the molecular structure of matter. In order for this to work, though, we have to choose the right time. The human bodies, like all living beings. are synchronized to the magnetic energy of the earth, which is constantly fluctuating. Researchers found that the weakest emissions occurred around 10 a.m. and the strongest occurred at around 4 p.m.
The light, life energy, or aura around the body has been termed the biophoton field. This field has been known for centuries by mystics and spiritual teachers, but apparently, scientists feel better if they can give something a truly scientific name. (We wouldn't want to get too "touchy-feely," you know.) This biophoton field was actually proven back in 1974 by Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp. This biophoton field is reognized by other names in healing models developed up to 12,000 years ago, such as Tibetan medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, and Ayurvedic medicine from India. The biophoton field functions as a highly sophisticated computer that processes, stores, and receives information used to regulate your biological processes. Biophotons originate in our DNA, and they operate much like lasers, which are coherent beams of light that contain information.
The DNA in our systems vibrates at a frequency of several billion hertz. Unfortunately, this is the same frequency on which cell phones work, a fact that may help explain why cell phones are slowly but surely proving to be harmful to our health.
Here's an interesting fact: Transmitting information of nutrients in the form of light into our biophotons can affect the body the same way as eating the actual nutrient. This may help explain why mystics in India practice sun-gazing, also called sun-eating, where they stare at the rising or setting sun, starting with only a few seconds' exposure per day, and gradually working up to about 45 minutes per day. These mystics claim that they do not need to eat food, as they get their nourishment from the sun!
Forward-thinking doctors are excited by these "new" scientific discoveries, because they surmise that there may be a way to measure these biophotons to locate imbalances in the body that lead to disease. Others envision using light as treatment for disease. Dannion Brinkley, who is able to recall three major out-of-body experiences in which he was instructed by heavenly beings, was told that his mission in life was to build places where healing was to be done by means of light.
It appears that not only are we Beings of Light in the Soul sense, but our physical bodies are also composed of light. It is interesting, indeed, that religions around the world have described God as the Source of Light. Let there be light! :-)
