A Song For The Soul
Musings On Dichroic Glass, The Human Neurology
and The Soul
by Silvia Hartmann
Silvia Hartmann writes: In my NLP
training, I often came across the term about something
"that makes your neurology sing".
that's a fine term and it always made me smile - what
makes YOUR "neurology" sing?
of a majestic symphonic sky.
Wind and purifying rain.
A beautiful young horse, racing across the green, so
full of life and full of power.
beautiful person, music, art, just a moment, the ocean,
the night sky, a falling star ...
they make your neurology sing.
make more than that sing, and it isn't just singing.
I believe that these things NOURISH OUR VERY SOUL.
They give us strength, they HEAL US most profoundly and
the most extraordinary way.
reach us and they touch us, re-connect us to the beauty
and the power of the ONE TRUE LIVING UNIVERSE, the
endless oceans of energy of which we are a part, to
which we belong by all rights, and where we are always
welcome, always at home, never alone and always beloved.
By accident, by good fortune, or perhaps by doing the
right thing, people invented something that has the
power to make your soul sing - dichroic glass.
I love its very genesis.
When the first
space ships were leaving our planet's atmosphere for
real, the designers wanted to make WINDOWS for the
astronauts to look out of.
Do you have
ANY idea of just how much more EXPENSIVE this made the
construction and design of these first space craft?
A window is a severe challenge to structural integrity,
and I wouldn't be surprised that the processes that had
to be set in motion so that there could be a few tiny
round portholes for the astronauts to look out and SEE
that were really in space now cost BILLIONS of dollars.
But whoever that was in charge of the design briefs and
the projects, they held firm and INSISTED that there
should be windows!
After all, what's the
point if you don't have windows?!
would be in space, inside a cat food can, and you might
as well be anywhere at all, for what good it would do
So much research was done, and
dichroic glass came into being for the very first time
EVER, at least on this planet here :-) and it was the
first time human kind managed to create something that
had true iridescence.
And here we are
right now, and we can not only hold the direct
descendants of these explorations in our own hands, but
they become OUR WINDOW TO THE UNIVERSE - and they make
our soul sing.
The purity of their
colours, the intensity and the shifting hues - I have
never seen a single person, man or woman, old or young,
rich or poor who were not INSTANTLY FASCINATED by the
Their eyes widen and
you can really see them drink the colours.
They smile, and often they sigh, they relax and they are
full of wonder and of questions.
that? Where did you get it? What is it for?!"
That is a good question.
What ARE the
dichroic catalysts for?
I say that they
are A PRESENT FOR YOUR SOUL.
A Present For Your Soul
We could go on forever and a day,
talking about how the laser pure colours of the
dichroics enter into and nourish your energy sytem, your
neurology; how you can hold your own fantastic "colour
therapist" with all the lights of the living universe
right in the palm of your hand; or go into scientific
studies about stress release with colour stimulation,
creativity enhancement, becoming more intelligent, yada,
That's NOT what these
dichroic catalysts are about.
about beauty, purity, and that we all LIKE THEM and get
something IMPORTANT out of interacting with them, is
MORE THAN ENOUGH.
They are a marvellous
gift, and I think of this as a reward for those who
insisted that the astronauts should see the stars and
earth from orbit, and stop counting the pennies!
Things that NOURISH OUR SOUL are priceless.
These dichroics are PRICELESS, absolutely PRICELESS.
They are gifts for the angel child within, they wake it
up and bring it INTO OUR REAL LIFE, every single time we
think to look at our dichroics, every single time we
ALLOW OURSELVES TO BECOME ENCHANTED with these beautiful
colours, shifting patterns and richness that is way
beyond the most expensive ruby, sapphire or emerald.
For those who understand this, I don't need to say any
more, and for those who don't, I don't think there's
anything at all I can say to make them understand.
There is more to this life than hardness and every day
Even if you know it and feel
it through and through, it is too easy to forget in a
fog of stress and misery and endless rituals and
The dichroic catalyst in your
hand, in your pocket, on your bedside table is a
messenger, a metaphor, a carrier that combines the
planes, and with their immeasurable beauty, reliably
remind us all of the truth of beauty, and of love.
