What is the Five Elements theory?

The Five Elements theory is unique to Chinese medicine. It believes we can divide all things and natural phenomena into 5 categories because they have similar characterizes or similar vibration frequencies. Each of the five groups—Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water—include categories such as a season, a direction, climate, stage of growth and development, internal organ, body tissue, emotion, an aspect of the soul, taste, colour, sound . . . the categories are seemingly limitless. The Five Elements theory such as Yin-Yang theory reflects a deep understanding of natural law, the Universal order underlying all things in our world.

How Colours Affect the Soul

In Chinese medicine, we relate various organs with different colours, which are discovered through deep meditation states since each organ has different vibration frequencies. Using colour for diagnosing and treatment of diseases are very common and widely used in Chinese medicine.

Nowadays, Psychologists and medical researchers have conducted hundreds of studies on the effect of colour on the psyche (soul, mind, spirit). Colour is used in advertising to induce us to formulate certain feelings about products and places.

Colours are made up of reflected lights that hit our retinas as vibrating wavelengths. Our brain then interprets these wavelengths causing physical and sensory experience that can stimulate hormonal and biochemical processes in our body.

Light has different particles called photons and microwaves. These wavelengths contain radiation, which is energy. Energy is Qi and life. Different length of a wave defines its colour. In our environment there is an enormous quantity of waves with different frequency characteristics, concrete frequency and colour correspond to each organ. Having the electromagnetic nature of the colour cooperates with the energetic structures of a human body which can strengthen or suppress their vibrations.

How to Combine Colours with Meditation
