The book is divided into three sections and gives a vivid history of the use light in different medical therapies. Mansukh Patel mentions the “Light Institute” in Denmark, which was opened by a doctor who used sunlight to treat tuberculosis patients. Scientific research also shows that the major control centres in the body are directly stimulated by light entering via the eyes. Light has a natural frequency, which means it is vibrating at a certain wavelength. It pierces right through the body, whether you want it or not. This really is the good news. Patel explains that cells in the body who are damaged will be brought into harmonic alignment as soon as a concentrated beam of light comes in.
A Dru Yoga tip to keep you happy all day long, is to have a good breakfast. It might sound like something your Mum might say, but having a substantial meal first thing really does make life seem much better. Our favourite here at the Dru Yoga centre is millet or oat porridge with tahini and honey. Put it on to soak the night before and it’ll cook really quickly in the morning. Another option is to work with the power of Laughter. Get the endorphins flowing with our favourite funny movies – here at Dru we’re still debating the best list, but it must include The Man Who Knew Too Little, Groundhog Day, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Airplane. And it tones up the abdominal muscles better than sit-ups!
