Electromagnetic emission from humans during focused intent

Journal Article

The Bioenergy Laboratory at the Rhine Research Center detects electromagnetic radiation from humans during times of focused intent-typically during deep meditation or implied energetic healing activities. Sensitive infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV) light detection equipment measures invisible light emissions from the participants. Approximately 100 participants, including selfproclaimed energetic healers, meditators, and others claiming no special abilities, were measured using IR and UV equipment. These experiments measure the levels (photons/second) of electromagnetic radiation and whether the participants are able to intentionally control the emissions. In the IR studies, professed energetic healers produced radiation or heat on their palms and foreheads when they began their healing process, and it subsided when they stopped. UV studies found 4 individuals and 3 meditation groups that intentionally projected from 3 to 100,000 times the baseline UV light readings in the room. The change began with their purposeful activities and stopped when the activity subsided. This research demonstrates that light-sensitive equipment can detect energies from some healers and meditators who are able to intentionally project this energy. These emissions may be related to chi, energetic healing, ESP activities, or PK.
