I have often been asked about light anomalies such as white,
blue or red lights seen whilst conducting vigils within a
In order to discuss this further it is a good idea to have
an understand of how the human eye works.
Light rays enter through the cornea and lens, which are situated
at the front of our eyes and are responsible for bending light
so that it can be focused onto the retina situated to the
rear of our eye. The cornea focuses this light whilst the
lens fine tunes the focussing process. The iris is responsible
for enlarging or reducing the size of the pupil in order to
let in more light or to reduce the amount of light into our
The retina situated to the rear of the eye is a light sensitive
layer consisting of rod and cone cells, which collect light
signals directed onto them and in turn send them as electrical
impulses along the optic nerve.
The rods are concentrated around the edge of the retina and
help us so see things that are primarily in our periphery
field of vision, and to see objects more clearly whilst in
a dim or darkened room. Cone cells on the other hand are concentrated
towards the centre of the retina and provide us with detailed
vision, sense of depth and colour.
If you consider that whilst in a darkened room, the cone
cells are not of much use, as you are not able to perceive
colour of depth as sight is often severely impeded from the
lack of light coming in through the cornea and lens. One of
the schools of thought on the subject of light anomalies is
that the cones are regularly sending information along the
optic nerve into the receptors situated in the hind brain.
This can be likened to two computers on a network continuously
asking if the other is still there, the resulting signals
can therefore be represented as pin pricks of differing light
hues, namely white, blue and red.
I would say that this has some credence from a scientific
viewpoint, the process of nerve relays communicating with
each other is a regular process within the functionality of
the brain. There is however merit given to the various increases
of psychic energy in conjunction to the range of light hues
For instance the white pin pricks of light can be associated
with low levels of psychic activity, however when the energy
within a room increases, becoming palatable, heavy even, the
room becomes visibly darker and the pin pricks of light change
in colour to those of blue. When the energy levels increase
dramatically however the light hues are reflected as pin pricks
of red light, and the room becomes almost pitch black.
The question has to be asked as to whether these are seen
with the physical eye, with the clairvoyant eye, or as a result
of the mental make up of the individual experiencing this
The point to note here is that as the room becomes darker,
the pin pricks of light are at their fastest, white, and as
the room becomes darker still, the lights slow down in frequency
to that of their slowest, red. Could it therefore be a result
of the nerve impulses transmitted along the optic nerve being
of a reduced rate, of less importance due to the reduced light
entering in through the cornea?
I have myself been witness to a spectacular light show, when
conducting a vigil in the dungeon of Tutbury castle, the energies
were of a very high level, the room pitch black, yet the amount
of red lights flickering around the room like cinders exploding
forth from a fire, where in evidence within a small confined
space, over 60% of those present bore testimony to this fact,
with gasps of delight and a few panicked shrills.
For myself I feel that is a combination of both, there has
to be scientific correlation between the transmitted nerve
impulses along the optic nerve reducing in number with the
decrease of light through into the retina and the increase
of psychic energy into the room.
