Normalizing the color spectrum that surrounds someone will greatly benefit their ability to relax, maintain an elevated mood and feel better on a daily basis. Color infusion techniques range from the use of gemstones to the hands-on healing technique known as Reiki.
The ways of Reiki
Reiki, pronounced ray′–key, is a healing energy transmitted through the hands that balances color frequencies in the energy field. Breaking down the word, rei means “universal, that which surrounds and permeates everything,” and ki means “life force energy, your personal energy.”
Ki is made up of the visible light spectrum, and rei is made up of the universal light spectrum that includes everything. Hence, getting attuned to Reiki gives you access to universal energy. You become a conduit for this energy that automatically brings you and others into balance with just the touch of your hands.
Using Reiki to balance the missing or overactive color in people will give them much more than just relaxation. Because you will be using the energy of the universal light spectrum, you will be able to give them the energy they are missing, as well as balance the colors they are overexposed to. The benefits of Reiki treatments include more balance, a sense of well-being and feeling better equipped to deal with day-to-day stressors. Long-term, this means a healthier and more fulfilling life for both you and your clients.
Gemstones and chakras
Colored gemstones are a great adjunct to Reiki treatments. Laying certain stones on the body at the locations of the most concentrated energy is an excellent way to send your client into a state of bliss. Each chakra, or energy center, has a certain color associated with it, and each stone has a color frequency and specific properties with regard to healing.
