The 5 Healing Colors

The 5 Healing Colors

According to Chinese medicine, the “Five Healing Colors” can purify and heal  all the pathways in the body, and the colors are traditionally used to harmonize  the organs. When you visualize these universal energetic color forces, the  organs become purified.

Even if you don’t have organs in stress, this is a wonderfully cleansing and  preventative exercise for your whole body:

Use this guided meditation using any one of the organs using the appropriate  color:

1.  Sit calmly but alertly.

2.  Pay attention to the calm place behind  your mid-brow.

3.  Think of something you love, and relax.

4.  Bring  your attention to the organ in need of attention.

5.  Picture the organ,  feeling the love you experienced in #3.

6.  Picture the organ as a rose that  is the color required, and imagine the rose slowly opening. Repeat until the  color radiates through and from the organ.

7.  Breath out the colored light

 

Blue:  The healing color of the kidneys.

Red:  The healing color of the heart.

Green:  The healing color of the liver.

White:  The healing color of the lungs.

Yellow:  The healing color of the spleen.
