The term is often used interchangeably with life force energy. While they operate as one, they are two different entities. Life force is our breath/prana, which affects our chakras, aura, meridians, kundalini, and emotions—our inner light, so to speak. Light force is our soul’s energy center which can affect our health and overall state of being. It is the outer light we project to the world. If the eyes are a window to our soul, then our skin is the mirror.
That’s me on the right at 26, the beacon of youth and vitality, radiating. Of course, I didn’t have to do much to achieve that phenomenon except brush my teeth and comb my hair. But that began to change once I hit 40. Why? Stress, lifestyle, diet. But what if you could dial back to the days of luminous skin and clear, bright eyes? No, you don’t need a time machine, just a blender.
Fast-forward to 56. I’m proudly showing off my light force energy—no cosmetic fillers or dermabrasion here, just me, straight up, happy, and healthy.
How long did it take to achieve results? Less than six months. How did I do it? Let’s stroll down memory lane to primary school when our teachers explained the symbiotic relationship we humans have with plants and the synergistic relationship they share with the sun: photosynthesis. Put a pin in that.
That word resurfaced when I was studying nutritional science in college. In short, photosynthesis is how green plants convert solar energy into chemical energy in the form of glucose (sugar) using water and carbon dioxide for food. Oxygen is released as a byproduct through cellular respiration, much like our cellular respiration releases carbon dioxide.
But it isn’t solely about the oxygen/carbon dioxide exchange because deep within the cellular matrix of leafy green plants is the primary pigment used in photosynthesis, chlorophyll.
Benefits of chlorophyll.
-Anti-aging properties. A recent study noted a decrease in the photoaging effects on the skin when chlorophyllin (a chlorophyll derivative) and sodium cooper were applied topically.
-Blood building. Chlorophyll is not only a powerful antioxidant but is virtually identical to hemoglobin, a protein essential in red blood cells to carry oxygen through the body. All that separates plant heme from our own is its core molecule: magnesium (Mg); ours is iron (Fe).
Fruits and vegetables contain essential, bioavailable micronutrients: vitamins A, B, C, D, E, folic acid, iron, calcium, potassium, and niacin, to name a few.
In summary, when we consume a who;e foods, plant-based diet, we expel the fiber and absorb the vitamins and nutrients of their light force energy. Energy is neither created nor destroyed. It merely transfers from one form to another—the first law of thermodynamics.
So harness the power of a plant-based diet, and transfer the energy to get your glow on.
