Lighting elements can also be extremely beneficial to those in a situation of long term healing.

 Candles, diffused light, dramatic “up-lighting”, outdoor garden lights (particularly if the garden is viewable at night from the patient’s window), hanging crystals to create rainbows of reflected light, marbles cast into the crushed rock of an outdoor viewing garden to catch the sun . . . all of these ideas can be therapeutic and add an touch of beauty to the space you are creating for your loved one to heal. Any additional ideas for adding light to healing spaces would be gladly received.
