The new biology that humanity is moving toward revolves around an accurate conception of the living human being. In the old model, we are a kind of biochemistry set, whose guiding principles are random "collisions," probabilities and purposeless occurrences. In the new biology, we see that we are coherent energy systems that take information from the world around us, "download" this information into the structured water of our cells and tissues and create a unified living system as a result.
Probably the most important type of information we receive is through light, in particular, the light from the sun. The sun's light is an incandescent light, a type of "burning." This light contains much different wavelengths, frequencies and information than those emitted by an electric light bulb. This incandescent flame conveys the warmth and light that nourish our bodies and our souls. The infra-red wavelengths of incandescent flames stimulate our mitochondria to consume oxygen as they create the ATP and water needed for our lives. It is this incandescent flame that has always nourished people.
In our home, we try to reduce our exposure to electric lights after dark as much as possible. Instead, we use either candles made from real beeswax or the red, incandescent lights made by Sauna Space (use code DRCOWAN5 for 5% off). Candles give off a gentle, soothing, healing warmth and light; they aid in the transition to sleep, and they work with our natural circadian rhythms. When burning candles, it is important, just as it is with all our food, to choose the best quality. We don't want to burn soy candles made from GMO soy, soaked in glyphosate. This is neither good for the earth nor good for us.
For this reason, we have decided to partner with the Busy Bees Candle Co., a small group of entrepreneurs who are making the type of candles we burn in our home. The candles are made from pure beeswax — no additives, no chemicals, no fillers, no poison. They are the healthiest, most natural, most environmentally friendly way to illuminate our evening homes. Please join me in supporting another home-grown initiative that supports our efforts to co-create a healthy world.
