Part IV of the article, “What is Reiki”
Excerpts from the book, “True Spirit of Reiki”
Reiki works in a simple manner, that is, through symbols. There are certain Reiki symbols which work and bring in the energy of Divine.
The energy (pranic) body is energized or the Divine energy is processed by seven chakras.
Light is also a form of energy. Light is of different colours. You like certain colours and you do not like certain colours. From the space, from the light or from the Sun God, we receive energy in the form of light. When you receive excess of Red colour, some red has to be eliminated and some red has to be stored.
Each and every chakra, maintains the pranic body.
Problems appear in pranic body first
All our problems enter the physical body only after entering our energy body.
Say for example, you are having some problem in the knee, liver or stomach means that one or two months prior to this, the energy body is affected in that particular area.
So maintaining the clean energy body, by realigning the energy body to the flow of Divine energy, you are cleansing, clearing and energizing and preventing the physical problem.
Our thoughts and emotions affects our energy levels
The energy body is also connected to the mind. In other words, mind is also energy. Every thought is energy and every emotion is energy too.
If you have feelings of joy and enthusiasm or any positive emotions and if you have positive thoughts then you are positively contributing to the energy. When he is in a joyful mood he can run 10 miles. If the same person is sad and depressed he cannot run even 1 mile. It means the unwanted emotions – sadness, worries or fears will dampen the energy. They will pull down the energy level by deviating from the energy flow.
Our thoughts and emotions affects our body and organs too
That means our own thoughts, thinking process and emotions have a definite impact on the energy body and in turn on the physical body.
That means each and every organ is connected to the energy body/etheric body mentally as well as etherically. Therefore, our mental thoughts and emotions will have an impact on the physical organs.
However, anger will affect only certain organs, sadness and depression will affect some other organ, and worry will affect some other. For example, while liver is affected by anger, then it will not be affected by worry.
So each and every organ is specific about receiving a particular energy. As far as the receiving of energy is concerned, it is the chakra which decides that, because each and every chakra is connected to certain organs.
When the energy is received in the form of light, each and every chakra is specific in receiving only one colour. In that way the energy field is processed and maintained by the energy body.
The law of nature is, “Where there is light there is energy and colour. Where there is colour there is light”.
Based on this Law of Nature, the active healing colours of the Reiki Symbols were found. When experiments were done, the prominent nature and healing quality of the colour of symbol was evident. Hence, colour therapy with Reiki.
However color therapy is not new
Colour healing is being practiced for so many years. They are namely:
Color Water Therapy
There are healers today who specialize in it. In their clinics, they would have three bottles – blue, brown and green. They will fill them up with water and keep them in sun for at least 8 hrs. Blue bottle will absorb blue colour from sun and convert water with the energy of blue, though the water won’t turn in to blue colour. Green colour bottle generates green colour energy, while the brown produces orange colour energised water.
There are only three primary colours: red, blue and green. Healing takes place by using a combination of these three colours. You will be asked to drink the water with a specific colour combination, based on your ailment.
For all practical purposes the four colours – green, blue, orange, and pink will do.
Using Laser Beam
There are colour chambers where the patient is asked to sit. Then, a laser beam of light is sent to them.
A photo sensitive chemical is injected in to the body. The cancerous cells are red in colour. This light will fill them up with red, to replenish the red scarcity in the body. This is called Photo Dynamic Therapy. It is currently practiced in Mexico and USA.
Other Modes of Color Therapy
Later on color crystals were used. Negative ions are impregnated into them.
There are colour cards too, which will be seven in number.
Colour bulbs were applied too. The patients were asked to lie down and then appropriate colour treatment is given to them.
Research on Color Therapy
For last 10 years I have been researching on this topic. There was a German doctor who researched on colours and association of 1000 herbal plants used in Homeopathy.
Reiki and Color Therapy
Reiki is divine white light, that’s what we think. When you draw all the symbols, it only comes as a white light. Without calling upon Reiki though, each of those symbols emits different colours.
