How Light Affects Our Energy and Health

Light is one of the strangest energies in the Universe because it can project itself into anything. When we break our bodies down to the fundamentals, they are made of nothing but condensed light. Remember Albert Einstein’s equation e=mc2? Everything that has mass (m) has energy (e) and light (c) is energy. His equation is not complete but it still does a good job explaining how energy, mass and light are related.

Because our bodies have mass, they also are made of light and energy. In terms of universal physics, the physical parts of our bodies are nothing more than projections of light that are managed by our consciousness. In other words, our bodies are more like illusions. Because of these features, the types of light we surround ourselves with can affect our bodies in positive or negative ways.


Light emitted from the sun contains full spectrum light, which consists of radio, microwave, infrared, visible, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays. Full spectrum light affects people differently than artificial light because artificial light does not contain all the necessary elements of light. Although, there are companies that claim they can artificially create full spectrum light by using special fluorescent tubes.

Artificial full spectrum lighting does a good job mimicking sunlight but it is not as strong. Sunlight is great for boosting our energy and health, but if we expose ourselves to too much sunlight, it can cause sunburn and even cancer. To reduce the risk of sunburn, limit sun exposure to 30 minute or less for every few hours. The amount of sun exposure will vary depending on the temperature.

The light spectrums that are most beneficial to us are visible and ultraviolet A, B and C. The ones that are most hazardous to us are X-rays and gamma rays. Sunlight is needed by our bodies to produce vitamin D which is important for boosting immunity and cell health. Sunlight synchronizes well with our energies; therefore, it stimulates all the systems of our bodies. This is one of the reasons why we feel more energized when we expose ourselves to sunlight.

Artificial light

Light emitted from regular incandescent and fluorescent bulb are not healthy for our bodies, because they do not contain full spectrum light, and their energies vibrate at certain frequencies that do not synchronize well with our energies. Regular incandescent and fluorescent bulb produce mostly yellow, orange and red light.

Studies have shown that yellow light, emitted from regular incandescent and fluorescent bulb, is not good for our eyes because it can cause contractions within the nerves of our eyes. This also applies to other nerves of our bodies. Hence, when we surround ourselves with these types of light, we usually get eyestrain, stress, fatigue, depress and our immune system weakens. If you experience a lot of migraine and eyestrain from working in your room or office, try changing your regular light bulb to full spectrum light bulb. This may help reduce your migraine and eyestrain.

One of the worst places to put regular incandescent and fluorescent bulb is in classroom. The light frequencies emitted from them decrease students’ learning abilities. If full spectrum light bulb was required in every school, students’ grade would increase because they would not have to worry about eyestrain, stress and fatigue.

    Good article. I was wondering what sort of light/other radiation a computer screen puts out as it is a well used piece of equipment in my home? And the effects it has on the body/mind.

      Computer screen refresh rate (flickering) and its radiation do affect the body, especially the brain and eye. Old computer monitor such as Cathode Ray Tube (CTR) monitor is even worst. Most computer screen refresh rate is set to 60 Hz, which is often bad for the brain and eyes. This is why you get headaches or eyestrain when you stare at a computer screen for too long. To avoid this, adjust your screen refresh rate and try to take a break from your computer every hour.

      To find the refresh rate of your computer monitor you need to open your control panel. It should be in the advanced setting under the display setting. Change the refresh rate to 70 Hz or higher until you find a refresh rate that doesn’t give you headaches or eyestrain. Note: Not all computer screen refresh rate can be adjusted.

      Visit the link below for more details about how to change screen refresh rate.

    Please check the statement about monitor refresh rates, generally they are 60 Hz rather than 60 Mhz.
