Chiu-Nan Lai, Ph.D.
Sunlight is an indispensable source of nourishment for all forms of life on earth, particularly plants. Animals and humans derive sunlight through plants. Recently, research shows that agricultural methods can influence the luminosity of plants. The luminosity of plants grown through chemical fertilizers is only 10% that of plants grown in the wild, and 10% of plants grown using natural agricultural methods. Our health is also associated with light. Those who are healthy emit more photons than those who are ill. The luminosities of humans and plants can be revealed by taking photos using the Kirlian method. A previous issue of the Lapis Lazuli Light magazine published Kirlian photographs of plants used in Synergy products.
Our eyes may not be able to see a product’s luminosity, but it influences our health. Many years ago, a cancer recuperation centre found that only naturally grown organic products have healing properties. We now know that these products differ from other products not only in terms of nutrition (particularly minerals) but also luminosity as well.
Using the dowsing method, I made further investigations into colour spectrum of plants.
In general, fruits and vegetables grown with chemical fertilizers have very limited colour spectrum (perhaps one or two colours), compared to the multitude of colours associated with those grown using natural organic methods. Spices that have a warm nature tend to have red, yellow, and orange colours, while those with cooling nature tend to have more blue and green colours. To maintain a healthy body, it is essential to absorb the full spectrum of colours in the food we take.
Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Penang again. Coincidentally, I found that people use spices that contain the full colour spectrum, and almost all of these spices are grown naturally or found in the wild. Generally, spices are grown without chemical fertilizers. In my visit to Penang ten years ago, I met a local herbalist who used wild plants to heal many cancer patients. People’s experience was that drinking the water of boiled pandan leaves can prevent and cure cancer.
I also checked the colour spectrum of many seasoning ingredients found in the market, as well as that of blue flowers, turmeric, nutmeg, ginger, lemon grass, small tangerines, peppermint, tangerine leaves, including many unrecognized green plants which were used as spices. I found that many of these have the full colour spectrum. Of the two types of peppermints that I examined, the one with the smaller leaves contains the full colour spectrum, while the other contains only part of spectrum. The former was a species grown in the wild, while the other was what people commonly use. Why would green plants possess the full colour spectrum? I believe that the aura of plants cannot be seen by the naked eye. Thus, differences in the colour spectrum between plants grown using chemical fertilizers and those grown organically are not apparent on the surface, and can only be detected using special photographic techniques or equipment. Sometimes, our eyes can make this distinction. I recall that every time I go to Bob Cannard’s farm, I sense that his fruits have an indescribable luminosity. Similarly his plums just look different.
Currently, food generally do not possess much radiance. Thus, it is helpful to supplement our food with spices, wild plants and naturally grown agricultural products that have luminosity. When I was visiting Hualian in Taiwan, I searched for plants with the full colour spectrum. In Hualian, it is possible to obtain wild or half-wild vegetables sold by the aborigines. I discovered that many types of vegetables have the full colour spectrum; these include red leaf vegetables, small bitter melon, huangong tsai, and others such as stinging nettle, and “lung quae” also possess more than five colours. Ginger has nine colours, while wild yam has red, purple, and blue colours. “Zhaohe” grass has the greenish-blue colour only—it is unclear whether this is due to chemical fertilizers in the ground or its genetic origin. During Japanese Occupation, seeds are thrown and scattered from the planes. These seeds are most likely originated from Japan. Stinging nettle leaves also contain many colours. Peppermint grown in one of the local farms also has the full colour spectrum. In contrast, some of the wild plants grown on the roadside do not possess any colour, possibly due to pollution from the exhaust fumes of vehicles passing by. In Taiwan, fallen leaves from the “ganren” tree can be boiled in water to treat liver problems. These leaves possess yellowish-red and orange colours, while its fruits possess the remaining colours in the spectrum. In combination, the leaves and fruits contain the full colour spectrum.
Books on light therapy indicate that red light is good for the liver. When I returned to America, I also measured the colour spectrum of organically grown spices such as sage, oregano, marjoram, chervil—these have the full colour spectrum. The fragrance of a product and its colour spectrum have a close association. Traditionally, products such as fruits and vegetables have a fragrance but nowadays, many of the hybrid fruits have neither the fragrance nor the colour of the past, even though their sizes are large. Taking food that has no fragrance can cause us to lack the radiance of the colour spectrum. What are the symptoms if we lack many colours in the spectrum? This question needs further investigation. I once tested the photograph of a child who was suffering from autism, and found that he lacked many colours in the spectrum. His mother also lacked the colour green. I am curious whether his condition would improve if the missing colours were replenished.
Besides using wild and natural agricultural products to supplement our colour spectrum, we can also use light therapy and colour visualization. Dr Mitchell May, whose recuperation from a serious accident was a medical miracle, was in the intensive care unit for nine months. His daily homework was to visualize that his entire body was filled with light. Both light therapy and visualization help to heal parts of our body that have been damaged by electromagnetic waves. A few years ago, I was injured by high voltage electromagnetic radiation and my left shoulder was in pain for three weeks. My tests indicated that the right side of my body needed green colour, my left side needed magenta colour, my head needed green colour, and my chest needed magenta colour. During the day, I would use light emitted through the magenta colour film to shine on my left shoulder, and the pain would go away. At night, the pain would return when I didn’t use the colour film. This personal experience left a deep impression of the effects of light on our body.
The invisible parts of our body influence the visible parts. Light or qi nourishes our physical body. If we have this understanding, we will be able to truly achieve holistic health of our body, mind, and spirit. Otherwise, we will focus our attention only on the visible body, assuming that it encompasses every aspect, just like a machine. This is influenced by Newtonian physics. From the perspective of energy in the field of quantum mechanics, if we raise the energy of our entire body, our physical body will also transform from an unhealthy to a healthy state. Thus, although visualization is a mental activity, it can influence the energy of our entire body.
Below, I describe a visualization using green and magenta colours and also incorporate Harold McCoy’s method of using liquid light to nourish the qi in our body. This is particularly important after chemotherapy. In a sense, all of us have undergone chemotherapy—there are over 400 man-made chemicals in our body, and the entire earth has also been subjected to chemotherapy. Hence, in our final visualization, we also visualize the earth going through a colour bath.
The following two visualizations were introduced during the November 2009 Taiwan talk, and one can do these visualizations by following the instructions in the DVD (see note below).
Green and magenta colour visualization
Relax the entire body, and take a few deep breaths. Breathe in into the belly and count eight times, then stop for eight counts before breathing out eight times. Visualize that there is a green sun above our head, shining into our head and nourishing our head, eyes, nose, mouth, ears, and teeth. The green light further fills our throat, chest, arms, abdomen, and legs. It fills our entire body, flowing into our bones and blood circulation system, lymphatic system, our internal secretion system, internal organs and genes. It heals all that need to be healed, rejuvenate all that need to be rejuvenated. Then, leave the green light on the right side of the body.
After that, visualize a magenta sun on top of our head, and its light entering our head and shining on our head, then our throat, and chest. It specially shines upon our lungs, heart, and then our abdomen and legs, followed by our blood circulation system, bones, internal organs, flesh, and especially the left side of our body.
Colour bath visualization
In front of us is a crystal bathtub that contains liquid of many colours—green, yellow, red, blue, violet, orange, and lapis lazuli, etc. Step into the bath, and let the body immerse into the colourful fluids, absorbing all the colours that our body needs. Absorb the colours either individually or all at the same time, till the body has absorbed all that it needs. Then leave the bath. Let the bathtub become immeasurably large, and let the earth immerse in the bath, washing away the earth’s filth from the highest mountains to the sky. Allow the earth to absorb all the colours it needs, and let its water, air, soil, plants, animals and human beings return to their original brilliance.
The DVD containing Dr. Lai’s talk “Joy in welcoming the return of the new earth’s spirit” is now available.
