If you’re into alternative treatments, you might have heard of Ajna Light Therapy and wondered what it is. Well, we’re sharing the basics, how it works, and its benefits.

What is Ajna Light?

Created in 2014 by Guy Harriman, Ajna Light Therapy is an innovative treatment that uses powerful light-emitting diode (LED) lights flickering at programmed frequencies for the entrainment of brainwaves.

This easily and rapidly induces a range of states from lightly relaxed to a deep meditative state.

Typically, these frequencies vary between 1Hz to 50Hz.

Here are some usual frequencies used in the Ajna Light system:

Delta Waves (0.5Hz-4Hz)

These brainwaves, present in slow-wave sleep and bring about deep relaxation.  They are also seen during non-dreaming restorative sleep. With delta waves, you may be able to tap into the subconscious mind. This state used in conjunction with hypnosis can be very beneficial in facilitating better sleep.

Theta Waves (4Hz-7Hz)

These neural oscillations may appear when you’re in deep meditation, drifting off to sleep, or dreaming while you sleep. Also, they are important for making memories, learning, and active movement. This is also an ideal state for working in hypnosis. Carla Chalah of Hemisphere Hypnotherapy uses the Ajna Light in hypnotherapy sessions to help facilitate deep change.

Alpha Waves (7Hz-13Hz)

Alpha waves are present during the brain’s resting state. They are the “in the now” waves. These brainwaves bring in a relaxed but focused mental state. This kind of state is great for heightening imagination, visualization, and concentration.

Researchers have found out that when you’re practicing meditation and mindfulness, alpha waves are increased.

Beta waves (13Hz-30Hz)

While you’re awake, beta waves are present as you concentrate on the tasks at hand. These waves are associated with the logical mind and pineal gland stimulation. In turn, pineal activation may help open the third eye.

Some of the signs that your third eye is opening include a growing pressure in your head, foresight, mental clarity, empathy, and a heightened sense of self.

Did you know that ancient Greeks believed that pineal glands connected us to our thoughts? On the other hand, ancient Egyptians have high regard for the harmonization of opposites through the middle eye?

Meanwhile, Buddhist monks see the opening of the third eye as the moment of spiritual awakening.

Gamma (30Hz +)

Regarded as the fastest brain activity, gamma waves are for high-level cognitive function and consciousness. It’s very active when you focus on love, compassion, and ‘higher virtues.’

How does Ajna Light work?

When you go for an Ajna Light session, the therapist will help determine the light frequency you’d be comfortable with. You would then lie down with your eyes closed as the lights flicker. Interestingly the Ajna Light can also be experienced in a group.

You may experience a kaleidoscope of colors, shapes, or images.

As you lie down, the pulsating lights can help calm down brain activity. At the same time, they can re-energize your body and mind. Another wonderful modality for this purpose is crystal bed therapy. The Celluma can also be used in conjunction with the Ajna Light on specific areas of the body to help relieve pain.

What are the benefits of Ajna Light?

There are several wonderful benefits of Ajna Light therapy. As mentioned above, it’s effective for stress relief.

Moreover, it was developed to help stimulate the pineal gland and establish a personal connection to the universe. As you open your third eye, it can move you closer towards reaching spiritual enlightenment. Some have compared the experience to shamanic journeying with Ayahuasca.

Other notable benefits are encouraging creativity and stronger intuition. You will learn to listen to yourself and respond rather than react to situations. Lastly, this experience can make it easier for you to meditate.

Meditation: Cultivating Inner Stillness

Meditation, an ancient practice that has stood the test of time, is a gateway to self-discovery and tranquility. By dedicating time to sit in silence, focus the mind, and cultivate mindfulness, individuals can unlock a wide array of mental and emotional benefits. Scientific research has shown that regular meditation practice can lead to reduced stress, improved concentration, heightened self-awareness, and increased emotional resilience.

As we embrace meditation, we embark on a journey to connect with our inner selves. It encourages us to observe our thoughts without judgment and become more attuned to the present moment. Through mindfulness meditation, we learn to redirect our attention away from the noise of the external world and dive into the serenity of our own consciousness. This inner exploration not only soothes the mind but also opens the door to profound insights and personal growth.

Light Therapy: Illuminating The Path to Vitality

In recent years, light therapy has emerged as a promising tool for improving mood, sleep quality, and overall well-being. This non-invasive technique involves exposure to specific wavelengths of light that mimic natural sunlight. The primary aim of light therapy is to regulate our internal body clock, also known as the circadian rhythm, which plays a crucial role in regulating sleep-wake cycles, hormone production, and other physiological processes.

One of the most notable applications of light therapy is in the treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a type of depression that typically occurs during the fall and winter months when sunlight exposure is limited. By using light therapy boxes that emit bright light, individuals can effectively mitigate the symptoms of SAD, such as low energy, mood fluctuations, and disrupted sleep patterns.

The Synergy of Meditation and Light Therapy

Combining meditation with light therapy creates a holistic approach to well-being that addresses both the mind and body. When practiced together, these techniques can amplify their respective benefits and provide a more comprehensive wellness experience.

  1. Enhanced Focus and Mindfulness: Meditation cultivates heightened awareness and concentration, making us more receptive to the positive effects of light therapy. By engaging in meditation before or during a light therapy session, we can fully absorb the therapeutic benefits of light, leading to improved mood and cognitive clarity.
  2. Stress Reduction and Relaxation: Meditation is renowned for its stress-relieving properties, and when paired with light therapy, it can lead to profound relaxation. The calming effects of meditation can synergize with the mood-lifting effects of light therapy, promoting a sense of inner calm and tranquility.
  3. Optimized Sleep Patterns: Both meditation and light therapy contribute to healthy sleep patterns. Meditation encourages a peaceful mind conducive to restful sleep, while light therapy helps regulate the circadian rhythm, promoting better sleep quality and duration.

Incorporating Meditation and Light Therapy Into your Routine

To harness the combined benefits of meditation and light therapy, consider the following steps:

  1. Create a Sacred Space: Designate a quiet and comfortable space for your meditation and light therapy sessions. Personalize it with soothing elements like cushions, candles, and calming décor.
  2. Morning Ritual: Start your day with a meditation practice to set a positive tone. Follow it up with a light therapy session to align your circadian rhythm and boost your energy levels.
  3. Evening Wind-Down: Wind down in the evening with a calming meditation session to prepare your mind for rest. Pair it with a lower-intensity light therapy session to support a peaceful transition to sleep.
  4. Consistency is Key: Both meditation and light therapy yield the best results with regular practice. Aim for daily or weekly sessions to experience the cumulative benefits over time.

By integrating meditation and light therapy into your wellness routine, you start on a transformative journey that nurtures your mind, body, and spirit. Embrace these practices as tools for self-care, and watch as they illuminate the path to a more balanced, vibrant, and harmonious life.
