Herbal Medicine Chest

Building an herbal medicine chest takes some time and thought as to what size it needs to be and what you will be placing in it.  There are many herbs out there, but take time to learn what each is for and don't take something if you don't need its healing value.

The first thing to do is make a list of the medicines and herbs you take on a daily basis and those you take when you need them.  

Make a note of your symptoms, what works to help them, and what you might need to ask your doctor about taking them.  Also, try to list if they are elixirs, tinctures, or tablets.  Some herbs run by season and some you can get year round.  

Some doctors don't like their patients using herbal remedies.  Sometimes people don't know enough about the herb, and it actually makes them sicker.  Read the labels carefully.  Discuss side effects and if the doctor tells you not to take the specific herb, then don't.  It may lead to more problems down the road for your health.  

How much to take also needs to be addressed.  Discuss the dosages with your doctor and obtain a herb guide to look up anything you don't know.  Being a well informed patient helps you and your doctor take great care of your health.

History of Color Therapy

Therapy by color is a way to help restore the imbalance by applying certain colors on the body.  Some 2500 years ago, Pythagoras used the light of colors and color halls were all over ancient Egypt and China for healing.  The very first wheel of color was created by Sir Isaac Newton.  

Johann Wolfgang Goethe started studying the effect of colors on the psyche about one hundred years after Newton made his wheel.  Goethe also divided the colors into two different groups – the plus group and the minus group.  The Plus group had red, orange, and yellow.  The Minus group had green, blue, indigo, and violet.  The plus group caused excitement and brightness.  The minus group caused depression and sadness.

Modern color therapy was pioneered by Neils Finsen of Denmark.  In 1877, he discovered the bactericidal action of energy from solar ultra-violet rays.  Finsen also studied how wounds healed somewhat faster when hit with visible light.  

Edward Babbitt was the founder of the principles of color therapy.  He treated a variety of illnesses and ailments from burns to colds.  He found that by placing a jar of water in the sun, the water would become medicated by the seven color rays.  His principles of Rainbow Healing are followed by some people who drink the colored, solarized water o stay healthy and fit.

In 1897, Dinshah Ghadiali, MD, saved a woman from intractable dysentery by shining indigo light on her body.  By the third day, she was out of the bed walking.  By 1920, Dinshah invented the Spectro-Chrome.  He deduced certain physiological aspects of each color and how they led certain behaviors.

In 1932, two Californian psychologists, Gerrard and Hessay, established that red has a stimulating effect, while blue is calming.

In 1985, Darius Dinshaw concluded everything on earth contains some form of color.  These colors arehighly beneficial to keep people healthy and for healing purposes. 

How to Heal Yourself

Healing for most people requires a lot of energy use.  You will need to have a clear mind free of any worries or problems that are going on in your life.  You can use meditation or visual imagery to help you relax.

Breathing is always the best way to help you relax.  Have a steady rhythmical breathing.  On the inhale, imagine a pure white light coming into your body.  On the exhale, visualize all negativity leaving your body.  Send this negative energy into the ground so it can be neutralized.  

Washing your hands and visualizing negative energy going down the drain helps.  You can also use bells or chimes to help cleanse the auric field.  Many other ways to clean an aura are burning incense, ask for protection and cleansing, rub Frankincense on your hands and wipe it around the auric field, and call for the Universal Energy to help you.

You can use these suggestions or in your practice, you may find something else that works equally well.  Use that.  There is no wrong in Reiki.  If you follow your intuition, that is all you need.  

No matter how much you want to help someone else, always take care of yourself first.  Empathic people use their own energies and end up feeling drained and weak afterwards.  This also makes you vulnerable to illness and any negative energies that are floating around out there.  

Direct the Reiki with your mind an use your hands as vessels to carry the energy to the other person.  Let your intent be to help heal the person or to take away some of their pain.  Intent is the most important thing in Reiki.  Always have good intentions concerning yourself or your patients.  Most importantly, practice the Reiki daily to keep yourself strong so you can help others.  

Incorporate Some Color Into Your Life

Incorporating color into our lives is really easy to do.  We can find colors everywhere in the food we eat, in nature, and in the cars we drive.  You only have to look at the world that surrounds you to see the vibrant shades of colors everywhere.  Colors helps our moods and energy levels.  It can bring out that creative part of our minds and brighten our day.  There is no end to what you can use different colors for every day.  

Here are some suggestions about how to get some more color into your life:

Paint with rich vibrant colors.

Use a colored lampshade or colored light bulbs.

Visualize your favorite colors in your mind.

Use shades that are harmonious and complement each other.

Meditate at a church where you can view the beautiful stained glass windows.

Go to a museum and take in all the artwork and the colors used in each piece.

Look around for natural colors.  Notice the blue sky, the blue green ocean, white moon, and the green grass.

Choose your favorite colors for things around the house.  Choose the shade of clothes you wear, the car you drive, the shoes on your feet, the scarves or mittens, and the sheets on your bed.  Go ahead and dress your husband in that pink shirt, he will feel much happier afterwards.

You have a choice in everything you do to pick colors that best suit you and your family's moods and preferences.  There are always hundreds of shades to pick.  Painting a baby's room is a project in itself.  Do you pick the pink or blue?  How many shades are there of these two?  Do you pick a neutral yellow which can go from Sunrise to Goldenrod and everything in between.  Have fun and enjoy the color schemes you have picked.
