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 donít 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.

Green is my favorite colour. This is a bit like praying in colour.

I love the bright colors like red, yellow, blue, green + all pastels along with violets, turquoises & bright pinks. Shared this on Facebook.

While some of these colors relate or can be related to the 5 humors, I have always been annoyed by 'red, orange' and less annoyed by 'yellow'. I wear and decorate my peaceful abode with 'blues' and 'whites' with accents of 'greens' and only hints of 'yellows' if it is in a pattern. What heals me, my inner sanctum and spirit are colors of nature as they are found in Nature. I love each of the 4 seasons, for their colors, Life is more diverse and humans are not cookie cutter produced with likes and dislikes, moods and aggravations--we are so diverse and individual in what pleases, annoys, and angers us that no randomly chosen group of 10 will be pleased with the same pleasuers.
