Excerpts from the forthcoming book, “True Spirit of Reiki”
What is Reiki
Reiki means the energy of God (or universe). The energy that is available in the entire universe is also available within us. Reiki is a Japanese word. Rei means Universe and Ki means energy. Energy means, an ever-flowing energy and ever giving universal energy.
Energy inside is same as energy outside
The man is composed of the physical body. To operate the body some energy is required. Each and every organ in the body and each and every system in the body are permeated by the flow of Reiki.
If the same energy is available inside the body is also available outside the body means, there should be some uniform flow of energy or some form of connection between them.
We are connected to a permanent source of energy
Assume a ball of energy which is 10000 times bigger than the Sun God. The Divine ball is always Purnam (complete by itself). It means whatever energy is spent for the sustenance of the universe will never be depleted.
How do we replenish our energy?
But as a human being, even if we walk for about 10 minutes our energy is depleted.
How to replenish this energy throughout our life is the basic approach of Reiki.
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.
I just came back from my holidays. Right now, I am afflicted by a throat infection, which happens whenever I travel by AC buses or trains. Please tell me what I can do for this problem.
- Keep your left hand on the Throat (Chakra) and the right hand below the belly button (Hara Chakra)
- Mentally rotate the Hara Chakra clockwise, and affirm, “My Hara Chakra is rotating clockwise in an optimal speed, drawing energy and Orange colour from the Universal Divine Energy”.
- Mentally rotate the Throat Chakra clockwise, and affirm, “My Throat Chakra is rotating clockwise in an optimal speed, drawing energy from the Universal Divine Energy”.
- Visualize Orange colour going from your Hara Chakra to Throat Chakra
- Do the steps 2 to 4, for a couple of minutes each
- Do it few times a day
- Chant the mantra, “Om Howm Vum Joom Saha” for as many times as possible, separately.
When you are affected by a Throat infection, the body would try to heal it by sending orange colour stored all over the body to the throat. This will lead to reduction of orange content in the body. We need to replenish it. We do that by accumulating orange colour in the Hara Chakra, and then sending it to the Throat Chakra. To know more about relationships between colours and Chakras, please refer this blog: http://colorhealing.wordpress.com/2009/11/08/colours-heals-Chakras/
In addition, whenever we are physically or emotionally affected, one or more of our Chakras will be imbalanced and they will start rotating anti-clockwise. When you have a throat infection, your Throat Chakra will be affected. As Hara is connected to Throat Chakra, it will be also affected. We take care of this by mentally rotating them in the clockwise direction and in an optimal speed.
Om Howm Vum Joom Saha is a good mantra for all types of infections, including Swine Flu. Howm takes care of the Throat Chakra, while Vum takes care of the Hara Chakra, and strengthens it. As we are prone to lots of infections these days, it will be a good habit to chant this mantra, a few minutes a day. Hold a bottle of water and chant this mantra. Then give the water to every member of your family as a tonic.
On a regular basis, you can charge your chakras with colours required by them. Listen to the Solar Energy CD which helps to keep your chakras balanced, normalized and energized.
