Biophoton Emission from Subjects In Energy Healing and Altered States of Consciousness
The ultraweak light known as “biophotons” emitted from organisms may convey information central to life. To explore this, we designed and built a custom photon counting detector system with a walk-in dark closet that can sit 3 persons comfortably. This system measures the light emitted from humans and other organisms either alone or during human interaction. Our experiments show that various regions of the human body, including the palm of the hand, forehead, heart, and abdominal regions, emit photons in the visible spectrum at an extremely low rate (less than 100 counts per min), in line with published values. We measured the light emitted from mind-body practitioners of qigong, meditation, yoga, and various types of energy healing, such as Reiki, external qi, VELO and the vibrational state, among other forms. In some cases, these practitioners were able to alter their own energy emission dramatically, for example by “opening” and “closing” the “third eye” region. In another study, we examined 3 patients pre-post energy therapy that was conducted by an energy practitioner outside of the photon counting chamber. We found that the photon count rate from the patients’ forehead, heart, and abdominal regions became more balanced immediately post-therapy. In addition to discussing studies conducted within our biophotonic chamber, we will demonstrate the Bio-Well device, a digital form of high-voltage electrophotography from Russia, which measures the induced light emitted from the fingertips and reveals information about health and healing states.
