Most of us remember being mildly entertained by kaleidoscopes as children where we looked through a tube to discover colored plastic pieces falling from one side to the other in pretty formations with varying color combinations. While many artisans still make the dry cell units of our past, much has evolved in the science of kaleidoscopes since those early years. Modern scopes share less in common with those dinosaur designs and have evolved from mere toys to bonafide healing instruments where new technology has merged art with science. Captivating for the mind, body and spirit, these healing wands are increasingly recognized for their therapeutic value.
Masters of engineering have created wands so entirely unique they no longer require colored particles to create incredibly vibrant, colorful, surreal, almost glowing symmetrical patterns. In contemporary models, instead of colored plastic pieces, each instrument contains sophisticated optics with clear particles of vacillating shapes and sizes that interact with a polarized lens causing light to be reflected off of the eye where it instantaneously creates color in the cell at the precise moment it is viewed. Each rotation of the wand creates an entirely original visual arrangement and instead of traditional dry cells where the pieces awkwardly fall from top to bottom, cutting edge designs include an intrinsic oil cell to cultivate a flowing effect influencing the emotions of the mind and feelings of the body. Coupled with patented mirror systems, multi point patterns, rotating dials, elaborate chambers and some even combined with elements of nature such as skeletons of prickly pear cactus leaves, the result is a splendid visual spectacle that helps foster an opening of the subconscious mind, where mystery and magic unite. The gentle healing power of an avant-garde healing wand is immense. Engaging both hemispheres of the brain, the viewer is simultaneously relaxed while spirits are raised.
I stumbled upon the miraculous healing power of these beauties last year and was so enthralled by the chemical changes I could literally feel inside of my brain that I delved into further study. Soothing and exhilarating at once, this intriguing phenomena is shared by many natural health practitioners and doctors who use these as healing tools in their trade. Used in cancer clinics, medical offices, waiting rooms, hospice groups and children’s hospitals, these healing instruments are found to nurture the user. Along with nourishment of the body, nurturing of the mind ranks high for achieving and maintaining health and vitality. These healing wands literally help open the mind creating room for the subconscious to birth imagination, creative expression and physical manifestation. Dr. Joe Dispenza, a renowned teacher who empowers people to manifest their dreams, heal their bodies, and reach their full potential is passionate about their power. Dr. Dispenza uses the kaleidoscope as a means to help people change their brain waves where they can move from beta (thinking) to alpha (rest) and even theta (deep relaxation and sleep) increasing the level of trance. In a suggestible state, people can be trained for a mystical experience of the unified field where anything is possible, the home of miracles.
Therapeutic benefits include a release of endorphins that help induce calm, relieve stress, lift mood, foster balance, increase mental focus, enhance creativity and boost problem solving and organizational skills. Affecting feelings, behaviors and actions, only two minutes of use has been shown, that for children with attention deficit disorder, to increase concentration and focus for more than two hours. Along with lowered hyperactivity and stabilized behavior, the children also benefited from lowered blood pressure and a decreased heart rate. In an expanded study, it was found that all children profited, experiencing a similar outcome. In another study by Dr. Hirotomo Ochi, Director of the Institute for Age Control in Fukoroi City, Japan, his research group showed that the simple act of looking through a kaleidoscope can help lower stress. Excess cortisol (stress hormone) can be damaging to the immune system. By reducing stress through visual kaleidoscope therapy, health maintenance and healing is naturally supported. Dr. Ochi, also a nutritional scientist, felt the nurturing benefits of these healing wands are as important for health and healing as nutrition is.
While some see this beauty as an art, it clearly is not only for the eye, but for the mind, body and spirit. Beauty feeds and restores the human spirit opening the soul to greater joy. Influencing brain waves through visual perception, utilizing healing wands as a therapy helps to reset the brain, supporting balance in both hemispheres of the brain. The hidden secret may be held in the spontaneous patterns and wide array of colors. Long revered in ancient cultures and healing systems, different colors of varying wave lengths have been used in healing systems to target specific organs of the body. Many of the patterns in these wands create a virtual mandala, used for thousands of years in the near and far east for meditation. Directing one’s gaze in to a healing wand diffuses excess energy whereby one’s energy becomes engaged and focused. Without exterior visual distractions, the eye engages the mind with a sense of delight as the psychedelic patterns seamlessly flow and morph from one spectacular prismatic display to the next. Staring into a healing wand allows one to bypass the neocortex of the brain. Because the brain does not associate the images with anything it has experienced in the past, this brings the viewer into complete and total presence. When bypassed, the doorway to the subconscious is opened, imagination is enhanced and the analytical mind is suppressed. By shifting the gaze from the dominant eye to the non-dominant eye, the right hemisphere of the brain is stimulated further unlocking creativity. The conclusion is that one is more able to embrace new ideas with ease, to discard old thoughts, patterns and even emotions that are no longer serving the highest good and to adopt new healthier perspectives while experiencing higher states of consciousness for a more enriching life experience. The resulting benefits may be amplified in concurrence with other healing techniques such as mindful breathing, meditation, positive affirmations, music or other relaxation therapies such as sound healing or aroma therapy.
No longer a child’s toy or mere entertainment, these instruments are healing wands that nurture the mind, body and spirit providing a bridge to the subconscious liberating the unlimited potential within each of us. I am especially mesmerized by the Japan made scopes as the Japanese seem to have developed a specialized passion for this form of healing artistry using advanced optics in their patented innovations and intricate detail in their overall design. I have since integrated these special and significant healing tools into my sessions. Before Christmas, I brought in an exclusive holiday shipment. Surprised at the overwhelming response, I sold out in only a few hours. This week I was blessed with a long awaited encore shipment of these priceless healing tools. Each chamber of the mandala wand is meticulously handcrafted of copper and specially selected distinctive stones. Two styles of a mandala wand offer equally fascinating, yet differing visual perceptions with varying mirror and point systems where the perspective shifts from a focal point at the end of an elegant chamber to pervading the entire peripheral field for a superbly immersive experience. Another morpho wand displays a butterfly suspended among clouds of luminous light mesmerizing the user in its grace. Each wand, regardless of style, is a unique hand-signed treasure. Magical to behold in every sense of the word, a mere few minutes a day shifts one’s perceptions, helping to expand consciousness to embrace new ideas, cultivate creativity, inspire the imagination, reduce stress and anxiety, induce calm, potentially deepening sleep and relaxation integral for repair, restoration, healing and health. Not just eye candy, these handmade gems are medicine to soothe the soul.
