Light: the Energy Medicine of the Present and Future

Contributed by Bernard J. Fleury, B.A.

In the Forward to Jacob Liberman’s book, Light – Medicine of the Future, John Ott, a pioneer in the field of photobiology, asks the question, “Are we to totally discount our own abilities to see, hear and feel our everyday experience, trusting only the findings of others who differ from us in their view of reality?” 1 The “real” is often hidden beneath the exceptional. The optical illusions researched by Goethe were accurate illustrations of the behavior of light. We must be open to new insights. Present day scientific methods are not eternal. They do not have the final answer and so cannot be allowed to be an absolute norm for what is scientific.

Jacob Liberman is an Optometrist and also holds a Ph.D. in vision science that he received for his pioneering work in phototherapy. He worked out of the Aspen Center for Energy Medicine in Aspen, Colorado, where he was president of the College of Syntonic Optometry, and also of Universal Light Technologies Limited, a company that researched and developed photo therapeutic devices for healing. As the year 2008 begins he lives in Hawaii and continues to do extensive personal consultations.

His approach integrates scientific research, clinical experience, and his own intuitive insights. The college that he led has advocated the use of light therapy by way of the eyes since its inception in the 1930’s. His own painful life experiences led him to a number of insights. First of all, he states that most of what life reveals to us comes when we are not looking for anything specific. In fact when we are too specific, too narrow in terms of what we are looking for, we tend to miss everything we were not looking for. “People are meant to see passively not actively….our eyes are meant to see for us, if we let them…vision is meant to be effortless.” (xx) As a result of this insight he stopped wearing glasses and began to actively experiment with the workings of his mind, especially with the integration of mind and eyes, the relationship between the inner and the outer light.

In 1977 he learned of a specific form of light therapy called Syntonics that “therapeutically utilizes different portions of the visible light spectrum to treat, by way of the eyes, an array of bodily conditions.” (xxi) He attended a course at the College of Syntonic Optometry and thus began his life’s work. Liberman concludes the Preface to his book with a concise statement of the basic assumptions upon which his book is written: “Our task is to take in and utilize light so that we may merge with our true selves and our destiny, thus facilitating the healing of our planet. As each of us becomes whole we radiate light – light from within – unimpeded by our self-imposed emotional and physical blocks. The medicine of the future is light. We are healing ourselves with that which is our essence.” (xxii)

His book is all about the science of light, a science that synthesizes scientific knowledge, intuitive knowing, health and personal evolution. Liberman uses the term “science” in its original Latin derivation, that is, “knowledge” and he includes induction, deduction, and intuition as all equal and reliable ways of knowing. He appears to rely most heavily on intuition as the beginning of the scientific process. That is not an unusual stance. In the late nineteenth century, the great philosopher and educator, John Dewey, wrote that all knowing, all science, begins with a hunch, a felt need, an intuition. Further thought and refinement of that hunch results in one or more hypotheses which are then experimentally affirmed or rejected by means of the remaining steps of the scientific method. Liberman maintains that the synthesized nature of the science of light provides a new paradigm in healing. He writes that light is at the core of the new “energy medicine” (healing light energy) of the late twentieth century.

…“light is the basic component from which all life originates, develops, heals, evolves…we are about to see a new marriage between the ‘intuitive’ and the ‘rational’ sciences – a marriage that is bonded by light…Miracle after miracle has convinced me that this science of the future is an investigation of inner space rather than outer space.” (xxv)

An Angel A Day Keeps The Doctors Away!

The Angels are waiting on us! They cannot just butt into our lives unless we ASK them to. And they LOVE to be asked!

There isn’t much I don’t do without first asking for some form of Angelic companionship. For instance, whenever I get into my car, before I even turn the key, I say a simple ‘prayer/chant’ … “through the Mighty I AM Presence I call upon Angels of Protection to guide me on my journey” … 3 times, then end it with “So Be It … I AM”

This little prayer has not only kept my car, with almost bald tires, on an icy road during one of our freezing rain storms, but has saved me from many, many, many accidents.

I use the same chant with any help I may need like Angels of Compassion if I have a tough situation and people to deal with, or Healing Angels if I am having a really bad day. I’ve even asked for Angel Mechanics when my car was acting up real bad and didn’t think I was going to make it through a trip.

Of course one need not be specific, the right one will come. Nor use my prayer. Create your own. Oh yeah, and don’t forget to thank them! It’s just nice to be curteous.

An Angel Is…

I have been lovingly prodded by my sister Terri to update my “Angle Talks” and so I sit here, pen in hand, waiting for some Angelic prod as to what I should write. Perhaps they need to use a cattlle prod to get my brain in gear today!

Once all the technical stuff is covered like ranks, dominions… etc., it seems the only thing left is sharing experiences. There is one clarification to make that seems to still confuse some and that is the difference between the dearly departed and Angels.

Although the idea that our loved ones become Angels when they leave us is a comforting idea, it is not a true one. We do not “become” Angels even if we have lived an “Angelic” life in our human form. I hate to disappoint people but the simple fact is: an Angel is, always was, and always will be an Angel. The same goes for us Humans - we are what we are, and whether in physical or Spiritual form, human is the vessel we have been given.

The closest we can get would be to become a “Saint,” but even that would be a misconception as “Sainthood” is not a creation from The Universe, God/Goddess, All That Is, but a concept created by religion and churches. As humans some of us hope to aspire to “become Angels” when in reality that would kind of be a step backwards from out true potentials even if it were possible.

Angles were created to Guide, Protect and Serve Human kind. Humankind was created to experience all of God’s creations and return to our rightful realization as the Children of the Creator and rightful heirs to All That Is.

Healing Guides

In ancient Greece, the sick went to temples with the hope of a cure by a ritual called incubation or “temple sleep.” Asclepius (known in other cultures as Aesculapius), God of Healing, was said to have visited them in their dreams, or even during guided meditations. Priests would then interpret the dream and recommend a remedy, or give advice on how they could be cured. Read more
