Meditation Colors & Their Meaning
The human body emits light that can be seen by clairvoyants and qigong doctors alike. In China, practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine have found that light therapy is effective in treating certain diseases because projected light is able to penetrate tissues and interact with patients’ energy fields.
Expanding the color image is an important part of a qigong practitioner’s ability to treat patients. Color light acts as a catalyst, bringing to the surface certain aspects of the patient’s unconscious thoughts and feelings.
In order for light healing to be successful, the qigong master first concentrates his intention on visualizing and cultivating a specific color. By visualizing a specific color, the qigong master activates a particular aspect of
Energy in his or her own body. The master then focuses on projecting this healthy colored light onto the patient’s organs, channels and organ systems.
Energy color therapy uses eight healing colors, ranging from low frequency (red) to high frequency (purple) and white. These energy projections are related to colors emanating from the Tai Chi pole of the body, and range from darker to lighter colored bands.
When projecting color variations, it is important to note that there are four levels or intensities of color gradations in each color.
There are two levels in the soft color range: light and medium light, both of which are used for soft, less powerful projections (usually for healing and cleaning wounds). Medium light projections are especially effective for treating young children and the elderly.
There are also two levels of intensity in the intense range: bright and very bright color range, both of which are used for full-power projections (to destroy cells and pathogenic factors, or to stabilize a defective organ or organ area).
Studies have shown that the use of color in qigong procedures can effectively change a patient’s heart rate, body rhythms and breathing depth. Advanced qigong practitioners modulate and switch energetic color projections during treatments. To avoid overstimulating the patient’s tissues, the practitioner begins with a lighter shade of color projection, then increases the intensity of the color until the desired effect is achieved.
Eight colors for health with energy projection
Based on the current understanding of prismatic light separation, color projection is classified and described as follows:
Ruby red color
This color has the longest wavelength of visible colors and is associated with physical and material forces.
It both warms and activates the body.
It improves blood circulation and can be used to stimulate the organs and channels of the small intestine, heart, triple burners and pericardium, as well as to activate Qi.

It is used to visualize body tissues, blood and the skeletal system.
It can also be used to treat paralysis, bone fractures and internal and external wounds.
Red generates strength, courage, passion and sensuality, and counteracts depression, anxiety and fear. It can have a positive effect in cases of disability and blood diseases.
Contraindications: The doctor should avoid using red when treating patients with hypertension, external bleeding or menstruation in women. The use of red is strictly forbidden in cases of excessive heart fire.
The color pink is used instead to tone the Heart. Pink can be used in small doses to relax and neutralize aggressive behavior. However, prolonged exposure may cause irritability, aggression, and emotional stress.
This color eliminates pathogenic factors and is often used to treat cysts and break up blood clots.
It is used to stimulate organs and channels of the spleen and stomach. It is associated with Qi (energy) and Zhi (wisdom) and is considered a powerful tonic.
Orange evokes self-confidence, determination and optimism, and stimulates visual expression of ideas.
Contraindications: The practitioner should avoid exposing the Qi of orange to the patient’s brain, eyes or heart. Orange is very powerful and can cause tissue damage if used improperly or in excess.
This color stimulates the nerves, restores cells, and heals wounds.
Yellow or orange-yellow can be used to stimulate the organs and channels of the stomach and spleen, as well as the pancreas, digestive system and nervous system.

Green is also used in combination with other colors. For example, shades of green combined with shades of orange to treat tumors.
The vibe of green is generally not as strong as orange and can be used in older patients, young children, or for a gentler healing session.
This light color cools the body and helps to soothe.
Blue can be used to stimulate the bladder and renal organs and channels, as well as the body’s reproductive system, skeletal system, throat and thyroid.
Light blue can also be used to nourish the water element Qi.

Dark blue indigo can also be used to stimulate the organs and channels of the bladder and kidneys, as well as the skeletal system of the body, the reproductive system and the sex gland.
Dark blue can also be used to activate the water element Qi.

Because of its ability to energetically dissolve in UCzi, purple can sometimes be used to dissolve brain tumors (when used for short periods of time during treatment and then removed immediately).
This color is a fusion of all other colors and therefore the most neutral. White is associated with purity and is the most common color of light used by Dr. Qigong.
It is useful for calming the mind or for placing a protective field around the body or around a particular internal organ.
White can be used to stimulate the organs and channels of the colon and lungs, as well as the respiratory system of the body. White can also be used to activate the Metal Element Qi of the body.
