A Qigong treatment is like being in a meditative frame of mind so you can work in an invisible energy field to medically treat them. Qigong requires mental focus and attention in order to get into this "dimension", to stay in it, and work in it. Once you are "in that zone" you use mental visualization, including colors and sounds to help you use the right energy wave to treat an organ.
What is amazing to me, is that different organs of the body are more sensitive and aligned with different colors and sounds, so in Chinese Medicine, they have a guide as to what colors you use to help you nourish different organs when you are in that energy field. Here are the colors that each organ system is more aligned with:
- Heart, brain, circulatory system, small intestine - RED
- Spleen, stomach, muscles, mouth - YELLOW
- Liver, gallbladder, tendons, eyes - GREEN
- Lungs, large intestines, nose, skin, hair - WHITE
- Kidneys, bladder, bones, sexual organs, ears - BLACK
My First Ah Hah Moment in Using Color
What really made this concept about using different colors in a treatment happened when I was doing one of my first Qigong treatments. I was working on a client's gallbladder and the protocol says to use the color green. However, a voice in my head said, "the color she needs is more teal" - which is still green, but with a bit of blue. I then mentally changed my mental focus to the teal color and I could immediately sense my client's gallbladder change and become more alive - almost as if I had just watered a wilted plant.
This was the Qigong treatment experience that let me know how each patient may need a slightly modified energy wave pattern to specifically meet what their body needs. It also let me know one way to make those modifications (like slightly modifying the color) and I received validation it worked.
