Many have asked what the light box / Harmonic Egg has done for me and how I came to open my own center.
I first saw the light box in October, 2001. Now that I am here and we have been open almost 9 years I can look back and see how the journey unfolded and why timing is everything and this moment in time is exactly perfect!
I started using the light box in January 2007. I really didn’t think I had any health problems and all the things I was dealing with were normal or I was just born with it. I do not have asthma anymore (had it since birth), my eyesight has improved and I no longer need to wear glasses (started wearing glasses at age 19), my digestive system works better, my hair is not falling out, my TMJ is gone, my cystic acne has all but cleared (thank God since I am 48!), no more insomnia (and I can breathe through my nose now), my broken left ankle (from 2006) and the torn ligaments (from 1996) in the right ankle no longer cause me pain when the weather changes or when I kneel and sit and I have more flexibility in both of them, my migraines of 23 years have been gone now for 5 years AND maybe it’s in my genes but I do not look my age at all…some have claimed there is an anti-aging component to the technology. I continue to use the technology as often as needed. Each time I emerge with more clarity of mind, more focus, heightened senses, better intuition and feeling in the FLOW…
In 1997 I left Michigan, where I was raised and worked in Automotive for almost 10 years. I moved to Texas to build an International consulting firm with a man who was literally a rocket scientist and a genius. He left NASA and started to work as an independent consultant in Telecommunications. He asked me to come to Texas and help him grow the business. We grew it to 26 employees and over $1 million in sales for 3 consecutive years. The mistake: We got married and then divorced and I left him the business and started out on my own. The 5 years we spent together were great and I learned a lot from him. He was into wellness and healing and I took an interest and have been studying advanced wellness for all these years. It was a hobby and way of life for me. I used to think to myself, “how could I make this a J.O.B.”, but thought it was out of reach for me.
In 2001 I was in Los Angeles at a conference where I met the inventor of The Light Box. I was intrigued by what I heard from him and followed his progress for many years. I even had the privilege to meet little “David” who you may see in a video testimonial on the Internet. He had a huge influence in why I am running a center today. When you meet a boy who was sent home from the Mayo Clinic never to walk or talk in his life…and he’s walking and talking, because of The Light Box, you start to wonder how life could be different for more people and how YOU can make a difference in this world with one technology. Admittedly, I was scared and comfy in my executive positions doing what I knew in Corporate America. I think we can all relate about fear of stepping into the unknown.
In 2003 I was asked by another business owner (David Stanley, step-brother to the late Elvis Presley) to help him grow his production company. Together he and I brought his story to the big screen. The DVD Protecting the King is available in most video outlets, Netflix, Amazon, etc. That was 7 years of my life!
Early January, 2007 was my first trip to Cottonwood, AZ to receive sessions in The Light Box. I was soooo excited after all I had heard and seen and I was going to actually be able to experience it myself. I went there with David Stanley. He and I stayed for 3 days to get the 4 sessions. This is what I actually sent to all my curious friends in January, 2007. Don’t ask me why I saved this…it’s truly was in my draft email folder for over 3 years! What you are about to read was my understanding from a first timer using The Light Box. I read it and laugh at my terminology and how I explained it. Today, I am much more educated on why / how it works and was mentored by the light box inventor, for 7 years! Plus, studying ancient technologies of healing via sound and light, how music influences our lives and body, studying the anatomy, sacred geometry, learning about Eastern medicine, working with doctors and other healers and having them as clients at the center. I am blessed!
“Hi there everyone!
You all wanted to know about my experience in the light box. I just finished my sessions here in Cottonwood, AZ. It was fantastic. What they have told me is that healing happens for 4-6 weeks. The very hard part is drinking 128 oz. of water for the next 21 days. Apparently, the cells are healing and releasing toxins into the body and water is the only way to flush everything out. Normally you are supposed to drink about 64 oz per day. That’s easy, 128 is hard.
We had a total of 4, 1-hour sessions…
My first hour session in the light box – entering a wood box on a pedestal with a mat / bed (somewhat like a coffin with more space – yikes!). There is a light overhead, rainbow painted in an insert the shape of a hexagon. There are six mirrors that reflect the bulb in each of them. They do not flash. The mattress seemed to have speakers underneath it and the music vibrated throughout your entire body. You are lying on your back with your hands (palms down) by your side. The theory behind it was the stimulate the nerves in the spine, finger tips, etc.
My experience was my legs and arms kept twitching and jumping (involuntarily) and my back twitched and it felt like a wave of something down my spine. I was told it was energy blocks clearing. OK, cool !!! I am sure I needed that.
David was told he was in the top 10% of patients that detoxed the most. They can tell this by the smell in your room after 1-hour in the box. The technician came in and had to get the director because she could not believe how strong the metal smell was in the room. He smelled as if he was rolling around in coins the rest of the day. Yuck!! Apparently, he was toxic and the vessel allowed the metal toxicity to come out.
After the sessions we felt light-headed and both had slight headaches (which went away after downing a bunch of water). The rule is NO energy work, massages, etc. AND no working out for about 2 weeks. Supposedly to let your system settle into itself. As stated above, the cells will continue to heal for 4-6 weeks. They do suggest coming back in 3-4 weeks for another block of sessions.
Second day, morning visit was different music and I was restless and not ready to relax so early in the day. I had a slight headache and dizziness afterwards. Afternoon visit was interesting as I had some energy blocked in my left leg that twitched and jumped about every 5 minutes. It was strange. I do feel like I have lost weight from the sessions or all the water – not sure which one. Apparently, the body works pretty hard to heal the cells so weight loss is not uncommon.
David – well he was just plain worn out from the sessions on day 2.
Last day…the music was different again and seemed to concentrate on my lower body for the first 15-20 minutes. It worked up to the whole body after that. Not sure how / why that is. I asked a lot of questions, but I didn’t ask ALL my questions. 😉 We left for the airport in Phoenix right after the session.
Today is the morning after and I woke up feeling like I was hit by a MAC truck. Wow, this takes a lot out of you. I got up drank 25 oz of water and I felt great. The words to describe the difference in the way I feel are solid, clear, balanced and positive.
I am a bit of a skeptic, but it seems that the box really does something, or it could be the couple days of rest and ALL the water. All joking aside, there was something about it that was magical and it did something.
Well, those are my notes from the trip and experience. I plan to have more sessions in the near future (probably late March). AZ is WONDERFUL (and it’s where it all began), but the Phoenix airport is not very user friendly…those that have been there know what I am talking about.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Much love to everyone,
It’s absolutely hysterical to read this again. I remember it like it was yesterday. I don’t know why I saved this email for so many years. I guess I thought I might need it someday!
My friends that I sent this to asked me to send another follow up in a few weeks. This is what I sent out late January.
“So, since I have been home – there have been no cravings for sugar / chocolate and food seems to taste different. Colors are more vivid and I am more aware of my surroundings. I have an inner peace that is just incredible and I have even noticed people in stores are treating me different, friendlier. Don’t know how to explain it – maybe it’s the 128 oz. of water… I just seem to be more balanced and things that would have stressed me out are no big deal.”
As Paul Harvey would say, this is the “rest of the story”: In March of 2010 I was working a corporate job (consulting) and commuting back and forth to Dayton, OH every week. I hated it and so many things happened to show me I was not where I needed to be in life or in my career. I won’t go through the list, but the BIGGY was my dog ran away in February, 2010 from the place he was staying in / being babysat in Texas. This was pretty much the last straw. I flew back and forth AND drove back and forth to Texas to look for him for several weeks. I never found him. It was one of the most devastating events in my life. I have no children and he was the closest thing I had to a child. I loved him so very much and my heart still hurts to think about what may have happened to him. On the bright side, the Universe took away a 150 pound Great Pyrenees dog and gifted me with a 1,200 amazing horse!
In addition, I was fired from the job because I went to look for my dog and left the office. I was unable to find another job for over a year and that ended with losing my home and having to file bankruptcy. After a successful career of more than 20 years I was lost and didn’t know what to do. The box was calling me back to Arizona so I decided to take a 2,500 mile road trip that included a trip to Cottonwood, AZ. I knew when I left the driveway my life would be different when I came back…I just didn’t know how. I have always been a supporter and in 2007 when I first moved to Denver there was a group trying to open a center but they were unable to get the funding so it did not happen. I was disappointed when it didn’t happen and had a desire to open one, but never believed I could actually do it. Upon coming home from the 2,500 mile road trip I ran into a woman I had not seen for a long time and started telling her about my trip to AZ. She said, “why don’t we have one here?” That statement changed my life! It was at that moment I knew what I had to do…this was around April, 2010. I opened Life Center on October 20, 2010.
Fast forward to late 2014, the inventor of the light box delivered another version of his technology to Life Center and I can’t exactly tell you all the changes that have taken place in my mind, body and spirit from this new and very different technology. I can tell you that this technology incorporated a horizontal semi-360-degree resonant chamber that uses sound, light, vibrations and frequencies together in a way to more deeply reinforce the natural healing ability of the human body. This natural healing ability is enhanced because the cells in the body are reset, rebalanced and reprogrammed back to their pure (healthy) energy frequencies.
Clients who have now used both the light box and the other technology, have told us that the second version worked faster and increased their healing ability much more. The good news is that Life Center is not just for sick people, it is also for people who want to use it as a preventative maintenance tool in their own health care regime.
Since 2016 we are using the next generation of sound and light technology here at Life Center. It’s called the Harmonic Egg and it’s a true 360-degree immersive healing experience (in the shape of an egg). You are in a reclined position (chair) and the sound resonates in it’s holographic-like micro-environment. Instead of hearing the sound from a speaker, you hear it in what I think is its natural broadcast. However, there are speakers in there to give it the ability to do this.
In 2018, we brought in a new Harmonic Egg design to immerse animals / pets with their humans and this has been an amazing creation. The animals / pets are having profound healing and holding the results. You can read more on the website under testimonials (http://www.lifecenter.us). One of the doctors we work with said this, “animals only know love and if we, as humans, only knew love we could heal as fast as they do.”
My life has changed more profoundly since the Harmonic Egg. I am having more vivid dreams, I am more intuitive, things are flowing even more than they flowed with the box, I am happier, healthier and have noticed more peace and harmony in all aspects of my life.
In 2019 we created 6 Harmonic Egg Wellness Tracks just for the architecture of the Harmonic Egg. The Tracks are titled, Boost Immunity, Heavy Metal Detox, Liver Remedy, Reduce Inflammation, Stress Less and Kid’s Sanctuary. The harmonic immersive programs resonate the body’s energetic system and together with the immersive experience in the egg, create a significant opportunity for transformation and deep healing to occur at the root causal level. The Harmonic Egg Wellness Tracks are also available to the public for purchase and home use. (http://www.harmonicegg.com).
These programs do not “cure” anything. They resonate and “tune” the body and the mind, open the energetic channels and release the body’s vital force, its natural healing energy, creating the opportunity for the body mind to heal itself.
Secondarily, the programs bring the energetic into alignment by resonating the body mind with specific key signatures and frequencies. When these are received by the client, their energy, their presence seriously enhances the body’s ability to heal.
Third, the immersive experience is a vibrational sound “bath.” This is facilitated through the conscious (intentional) composing and then mixing and mastering process. Our programs surround the client with beautiful harmony and sound, a multidimensional experience that facilitates the body’s natural healing process to the highest level. These notions of creating the conditions for the body mind to “heal itself” is the whole deal….this is the primary intention.
I am excited for all of you to experience the greatness of the Life Center and encourage you to browse the website (http://www.lifecenter.us) to learn more about it. Feel free to contact me with any questions. I am available to serve you in your journey to a healthy YOU. We are getting more and more interest from people and doctors to purchase the Harmonic Egg. If you are interested in finding out how to purchase a Harmonic Egg, please contact us at 303-630-9218 or visit http://www.harmonicegg.com.
I have been studying sound and light therapy, frequencies, different types of music / artists and instruments for almost 10 years now. I am an engineer from Detroit so it’s not been easy for me to accept what I have seen and experienced since opening Life Center in Denver, Colorado about 8 years ago.
There are all kinds of healing modalities and healers out there. Some work, some don’t and some are temporary fixes. I have tried 50 or more modalities over the years and what works for one may not work for others. It’s a journey to find the combination to your healing.
I created the Harmonic Egg because I have tried so many other modalities without success for the deep healing I was seeking.
Everyone thinks they understand frequencies and they deem 528Hz for healing the DNA and 432Hz as the Universal frequency. Not so…why? Everyone is different and everyone vibrates at different frequencies every second of every day. PLUS, people are listening to 528Hz on their computer or MP3 player and I don’t believe you are actually getting 528Hz from compressed files or tiny speakers. I believe MP3 files are cold and clinical for healing. We use CD quality music with amazing speakers AND the key is we use a geometry of an egg in a resonant chamber. You are immersed in the environment for your whole body and soul. You do not need to have specific frequency for this type of healing. It’s the geometry / shape and resonance that is healing not the named frequencies.
Many of our clients are musicians and one mentioned that his instrument only tunes to 440Hz and if he tries to force 432Hz or 441Hz it’s out of tune and does not play well. Think about it. The body is that way too. If you force binaural beats and hemi-sync music you might be doing yourself a disservice. Why not allow the body to come into balance naturally? The CPU of the body is the nervous system, not the brain. That’s my opinion. The brain is connected to the nervous system as is everything else.
Through all my studying and observation people do really well in the Harmonic Egg. I am amazed on a daily basis how people can heal. Recently there were two examples I can give you. One was a young man with lower back pain and the doctors could not help him. He did one session and said his back was “feeling ridiculously good”. Why? My opinion is that the pain was emotional and we discussed releasing the emotions. One of the keys to healing is intention! The second example is a young woman who recently had 2 epidurals during her child’s birth. She set the intention to relieve the pain in the area where the epidurals were given and she told me the next day the pain was gone. Am I amazed? Yes! Am I surprised? NO! The body is an amazing machine and can heal at quantum speed when given the right environment.
In creating the Harmonic Egg and making it a reality, I have taken on a HUGE responsibility. It’s very humbling. It’s also very stressful to be in this field. I feel like a pioneer and my intuition is so strong from the years of doing sound and light therapy. It’s hard to watch a lot of more “credible” people put their opinions out there and yet I know many are not correct, but their egos are in the way of them learning what is true and real. There are things that have been revealed to me through mentors and intuition that I know to be true, but you can’t read about it or study it just yet. You just have to trust. Each and every one of us are different and no one person will heal with the same modalities as another. I believe in the Harmonic Egg everyone is seen differently and can heal within the confines of their capability and speed. For some it’s a journey and for some it’s instant based on their path with the illness, disease, emotion or trauma.
I could write a book, but most people are busy and short articles are easier to digest. If you would like more information or have questions you can visit the website and find TV and Radio Interviews, testimonials, other articles and more! http://www.lifecenter.us
Why the Harmonic Egg?
It’s been the question of the day since I announced the creation in July, 2017.
I have been studying sound and light therapies and healing for eight years. I have owned and operated my own healing center during this time and observed the effects of several therapies on clients’ health and well-being. I have owned two technologies that were sound and light chambers. I created the Harmonic Egg as a new and innovative, next generation healing chamber based on my observations of clients before and after sessions in the previous two technologies, research on the modality, reading books from experts in the industry, white paper studies and collaboration with the medical community. The Harmonic Egg is a large ellipse (egg shape) where the client reclines inside the “egg” or chamber in a chair. We are getting great feedback thus far and continue to do research.
It was not easy to build this unit. The materials used are natural. It was a challenge to find materials that could bend in the shape of an ellipse to form an egg. Plus, we had to create a chamber that resonated the sound in a holographic-like micro-environment. Instead of hearing the sound from a speaker, you hear it in what I think is its natural broadcast. It’s super fun! Sometimes I hear the sound above my head and I know there are not any speakers above my head. The angles, the ratios and all the other concepts we use in this Harmonic Egg is proprietary information, but it was well thought out and evolved from ancient teaching and texts. The size of the Harmonic Egg will fit in a 10’ x10’ room on a diagonal, but it’s better to have a 12’ x12’ room. It took about almost a year from start to finish to create the first prototype that is now operational at Life Center in Westminster, Colorado.
One of the issues I observed with the previous technologies was sound distortion. In the previous chambers, automotive type round speakers are used beneath a thick foam pad where the client lies flat during sessions. There is cubic air space under the speakers, but I don’t believe it’s the proper cubic air space for the rating of the speakers. I always felt there was a lot of distortion from the music having to come through a foam pad. Our nervous systems tend to take distortion and make up “data” to fill in gaps to process information. My experience and research led me to realize that I wanted to get the purest sound and little to no distortion, hence another reason for the Harmonic Egg.
Let me mention here that lying flat for some clients is not comfortable nor relaxing. Clients have neck and back issues and want pillows and bolsters as props for comfort. In addition, some clients have a hard time rolling up from a flat position to exit the chamber. The Harmonic Egg uses a reclining chair and has been much more comfortable for clients.
There is also the issue of the music that is being played. Over the years, I have studied sound and how different instruments effect / affect the body (physically and emotionally so I am using both spellings of the word). I have worked with sound and lighting experts gathering lots of information to create the Harmonic Egg. When you compress a CD into an MP3 format you lose much of the quality, frequencies, musical information, etc. Compression changes the original intent of how the music was intended to be enjoyed. MP3s are for convenience so you can fit 1,000 songs on your MP3 player. It’s quite complicated, but easy to understand once you hear the difference. Based on my experience, the previous two technologies both use compressed music. The Harmonic Egg uses the higher quality CD resolution giving the body and nervous system a purer listening experience. There is a difference!!!! Then there was the investigation for the right speakers, subwoofer, amplifier and player for the music. Sound systems are not all created equal; the components have to all play nicely together. For example, there are surround amplifiers and integrative amplifiers and subwoofers that have speakers on the side and the bottom versus just the bottom or just the side. Speakers have different elements that make them relevant for different applications. The sound system was the second most important consideration after designing the structure and shape of the Harmonic Egg.
Oh, not to mention the search for the right kind of music to use and the right tones and instruments and frequencies. This is something I have been studying for six years. It’s important to consider: Who is the artist? What is their intention of the music? I learned so much about selecting music…testing and seeing how clients respond to the music and paying attention to the sound quality and frequencies. These are important details that effect / affect the clients’ response in the Harmonic Egg.
Next there is the light therapy. I think in the future we will get more and more sophisticated technologies, but for now we do know that different light frequencies are effective / affective for healing. For example, if you are a woman with a lot of yeast infections this can be due to an imbalance in the body (specifically the sacral chakra), and using orange light and the instrument of the flute can help bring that back into balance. This is the type of training I never received with the two previous technologies, but after studying for the past ten years I can offer this type of training with the Harmonic Egg. Many lighting systems don’t give you the full color spectrum of lights. It took me about eight months of research to choose the lights and the right type of remote to control the lights and light settings.
We can’t forget about the chair for the client while they are in a session. I searched the world over for a chair that reclines at the right angle for the best results in the Harmonic Egg. It also had to meet the criteria for size and comfort for so many shapes and sizes of clients. It was a matter of thinking about how the client would feel and how the technician putting them in for a session would be able to comfortably and easily support the client.
Every thought and idea for the Harmonic Egg was well thought out for both the client and the center owner or technician from the complexity of the technologies used, effectiveness, to the ease of setup and use, cost and comfort.
How long does a client need to stay in the chamber, the protocol? We are using 40 minutes and then the POWERFUL 10 minutes of silence in the chamber to integrate the session. It’s truly an amazing experience! I read a white paper in 2016 that came out of Feiburg, Germany. It described the use of deep relaxing music to help patients heal and they discovered a period of 6.5 minutes of silence helped integrate the healing, so I adopted that discovery and added a few extra minutes because I feel the silence is important and more was needed. If you have read anything about chiropractic care and its beginnings, there are accounts where the doctor was trained to ensure the patient rests at the office for a short time to help the adjustment integrate and set into the body. Integration of all these modalities that people do these days is so very important. I give the analogy of digesting food. You don’t eat a salad and then when you are full go eat a sandwich and then pile another salad on top of that… do you? No! You let the first salad digest and “integrate” with your body before moving on to a sandwich later in the day or the next day. Energy work is the same…you must let one modality digest before you “feed” it more.
The previous chambers had single sessions and sets of sessions depending on the condition of the client. For chronic conditions sets of sessions were recommended. That hits the body more consistently with the energy to help the body heal faster. A client can choose to go slow or accelerate the healing process. A single session takes about four (4) days to integrate before you would be able to schedule another session (there are exceptions to all rules). A set of sessions consists of a client coming every 4 days for approximately four to eight (4-8) sessions. That means a client would do a session and four (4) days later do another and four (4) days later another for four to eight times total. After a set, a client would take a break from any and all other energy work for three to four weeks. We supply you with a protocol for integrating sessions where we suggest dietary changes as well.
Finally, I did think about and tried aromatherapy in the room for the clients. The determination thus far is that it’s a bit of sensory overload for many clients. It might be something to use on a case-by-case basis, but as of now I am not using it. There are so many clients with neurological issues and chemical sensitivities I just don’t think it’s needed nor will it make the sessions more effective.
So, that’s the story of the Harmonic Egg and why I created it! If you have any questions or would like to learn more you can reach me via the website: https://lifecenter.us.
NO MORE MIGRAINES
23 years of agony and fear
By Gail Lynn (Written in 2010). Life Center is going on 8 years old and we have evolved from the older technology light box to the next generation of sound and light chambers called The Harmonic Egg. Check out the website for more details. https://lifecenter.us
If you have ever been a migraine sufferer, then you know what it’s like to, at one moment, be enjoying life, and then suddenly-BAM!-it hits you out of the blue. A true migraine gives very little warning and, for most, no real reason.
My first migraine occurred at the age of 17. I was getting ready to go to a friend’s graduation party and BAM!, there it was. I had optical migraines. It was as if I had looked at the sun and then looked away, leaving a negative of the image in my view. The spot would stay there and grow, reaching out towards the edges until it eliminated my peripheral vision completely. After about forty-five minutes the pain would start, pain like an ice pick scraping the inside of my skull for endless hours. Twelve to fifteen hours of this left me feeling as if a gun to the head might be a better option. The pain was so intense that if I entered into a lit area I would feel the need to vomit and have diarrhea at the same time. Most of the time I would just gag over the toilet and get nothing but drool. I couldn’t eat, sleep, drink, or relax. Over a twenty-three year period, I averaged eight migraines a year. I can’t imagine what I might have done had I experienced them more often than I did.
Migraines ran my life. There was always a fear of the next one. Sometimes I would look at the sun or at a bright light, and when I looked away my body would be tense, almost as if it was expecting to be filled with overwhelming pain in an instant. Migraine sufferers live with that fear daily and always have to be sure on how to cope when it hits. I was lucky that I had forty-five minutes of compromised vision before the pain started. It was my warning. Many times I found myself racing home, nervously driving, so that I could get into bed where the shades were down and the lights were out.
For twenty-three years I searched for answers. The first place I looked was in traditional medicine, and after thousands of dollars and many wasted years I realized that I needed better options. I tried acupuncture, chiropractic, yoga, hypnosis, herbs, supplements and diets. Sometimes I thought I received some relief, but it never seemed to last.
In January of 2007 I found a sound and light technology/modality. The light box uses frequency, vibration, sound and light waves in a resonant frequency to detoxify, de-stress, reset and rebalance the body. It takes the body to a level below the level of consciousness while still in an awakened state and works to balance the autonomic nervous system so the body can work to heal itself.
I traveled to Arizona to try it, and at first I really didn’t notice anything. I was one of the biggest skeptics. After several months I noticed subtle changes; my eye doctor told me that my eyesight had improved, and I noticed that my asthma seemed to have disappeared. I wondered if it could have been the light box. I had not done anything else, and despite my stressful job and lifestyle, something was improving my wellness.
A year later I visited the center again and the next migraine I had only lasted for 10 hours and seemed to be less intense. Another light box session and the next migraine lasted only about 6 hours. One time I developed a migraine while I was at the center, and I entered the light box during the migraine. A session lasts about one hour, and that hour was painful. However, the migraine was gone in about 15 minutes after the session, and I was able to eat and keep food down right away.
I was so amazed that I decided to open my own center in Colorado. To date, I have been migraine-free for one year. I did about twenty sessions before the migraine pain was gone, but the pain is finally gone! I have had a few silent migraines in the past year, but never with any pain. What I mean by silent is that I had the compromised vision, but nothing more than that followed.
I am more than grateful to the older technology for all it has done for me and for what I have seen it do for others. I am not only migraine-free, but also asthma-free and insomnia-free. I breathe better, I don’t have globs of hair coming out in the shower, I feel less stressed, I don’t need my glasses anymore, my cystic acne is gone, my blood work is pretty darn good for a 40 year old woman and I have also had several other improvements.
If you suffer from migraines don’t give up! There are therapies that are out there that might be right for you.
