The use of color, light and crystals in healing is not a new idea. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Babylonians (probably even the ancient Sumerians) and other ancient civilizations had great temples dedicated specifically for this type of healing. Almost every major religion and spiritual practice today talks about the light within, the light above, being connected to the light, and instills that the path to true health and life is via light.
Today, this form of healing has been revitalized due to our ability to control and reproduce specifically the direction, intensity and frequency (color) of the light, and then combine that with it being more portable than ever before. During the last 40+ years, there have also been new scientific breakthroughs and understanding via biophysics and through the work of Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp, among others.
We are seeing through modern sciences that the body’s primary form of communication may be with light (biophotons), and researcher report that cells are storing, transmitting, understanding, and responding to light! This does not come as a surprise in the holistic health fields or deep spiritual communities, for as we have been taught, everything is vibration/frequency = information, and hence vibration/frequency is within light, sound, color, and well, everything!
One of the most well-rounded versions of color light therapy today, in my belief, is Esogetics (Colorpuncture), developed by Peter Mandel more than 40 years ago. It compounds upon the early works of Augustus Pleasanton and Edwin Babbitt and combines it with many of the naturopathic and hermetic philosophies and principles found around the globe, as well as modern scientific advancements.
The name Esogetics comes from a combination of the two words: esoteric (meaning the old world knowledge) and energetic (meaning the new, scientific knowledge of our age). In Esogetics, you can find traces of over 200 different holistic healing modalities.
Within Esogetics there are two primary paths of healing therapies — the Esogetics Light Therapies (Colorpuncture, Transmitter Relays, I Ging, Ophthalmotropic Genetic Therapy – OGT, Infrared Pain Therapies, and others) and the Esogetics Crystal Therapies (Tree of Life, Bardo, Karma, Crystal Vision, Dream & Love Disc therapies, and many more).
With the light therapies, we utilize specific colors (frequency) of light on precise points of the body (acupuncture/pressure points, reflexology zones and other energetically sensitive points) and the contained microsystems (skull somatotopy, auricular, Putkammer segments, facial physiognomy and others) to help balance the yin/yang energy flows. The therapy also provides new, correcting information that causes a cascading reaction within the mind, body and soul, which then allows for the core “conflict” to resolve.
In the light therapies, we have a total of 16 different colors (Infrared, red, orange, yellow, green, dark turquoise, blue, violet, ultraviolet, crimson, light green, light turquoise, rose, as well as 3 grey colors) that we utilize in literally thousands of specified therapy protocols.
In the crystal therapies, we use a combination of specifically cut and colored Swarovski crystals inlaid with sacred geometry. We have seen through the crystal therapies, with the help of Professor Popp, that these crystals interact with the biophotonic communication of the being and are believed to create a reorganization of the information contained within, allowing for clearer, more pure communication. This then allows for a profound transformation on all levels of the being.
Currently, we use several specific crystals. These are the polarity crystals (Sun/Gold and Moon/Silver), the elemental soul crystals (Earth, Air, Fire, Water or Light Green, Light Turquoise, Crimson and Rose respectively), the Crystal Activator, the newly developed grey crystals as well as the Love/Energy and Dream/Information disks (the Body/Matter disk is still being developed and tested).
Science reveals more everyday about light’s potential to heal. The University of Wisconsin-Madison has used infrared light to help cancer patients and red LED light for anti-aging and for infants with jaundice. An infrared pain study on chronic pain has been done at Evaluation Hospital in Herne, Germany.
In all, Esogetics has come a very long way in combining the knowledge and wisdom of the ages and working on creating reproducible and sustainable results in our scientific age.
