SPIRITUAL HOMEOPATHY: HEALING THE SUBTLE BODIES OF THE HUMAN ENERGY SYSTEM

Spiritual homeopathy combines the healing power of homeopathic medicine with a penetrating understanding of the subtle energy bodies in the Human Energy System. These bodies contain our life force, desires and aversions and the soul forces that determine our karma and destiny. They form the context in which we live our lives, either by being balanced and open to life or by being closed and contracted. The etheric body is the subtle body which contains the regenerative life principles that stimulate physical and emotional development; the astral body holds our spirit’s longings and desires and our mentality while the Egoic field showcases our individuality and sense of freedom which allows our soul to flourish. These subtle bodies, described by Dr. Rudolf Steiner in his Anthroposophical writings, can be considered pathways to healing and consciousness. When these bodies fail to thrive or grow appropriately pathology and imbalance harden into a crucible of limitation and restriction. By addressing healing from this deep level we balance to our genetic pre-disposition, known as miasms, and emotional blockages. This allows a gentle transformation to occur, which will eventually bring about balance and harmony so the system can be dynamic and vital again. It will need to be released of stress and toxins in the process of re-establishing balance. The best medium for this change is homeopathy. Homeopathy, developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in Germany in 1800, offers the most conscious and effective way of shifting both our genetic pre-dispositions and emotional blockages in a permanent and productive way. Homeopathy helps us move on in our lives because it can penetrate deep into the core of dysfunction and what ails us. Homeopathy is the treatment of symptoms using the ancient principle of “like cures like” so that natural substances, which have a specific imprint on the physical, emotional and mental aspects of our being, can be used to help us decongest what is blocked and stagnant. These substances are made up into solutions of miniscule dilutions. They do not overpower the system but gently stimulates it to generate its own vitality and to strive for balance and health on all levels. It is through the direct application of these miniscule remedies that we redress what is disturbed in our physical, etheric, astral and egoic bodies. In recent years the healing properties of sound and color, transformed into homeopathic remedies, have been used to distress and unblock the human energy system. They have proved to be gentle, safe and effective in healing a variety of pathology, as well as emotional and mental problems.

Each one of the subtle bodies resonates with and is especially attuned to personal archetypes of empowerment, responsibility and vitality as well as to life issues and challenges. They resonate with the chakras, or energy centers, of the human energy system. Color and sound, as it happens, have a particular affinity to these centers. All charkas also have a “right of being” that corresponds to it. The Root chakra, located at the base of the spine, has a right to the life we say we want. It helps us become anchored in the earth forces that control cycles and rhythms and helps us move from a place of belonging and connection. It helps us to receive what is rightfully ours to experience in a way that allows us to assimilate what is nutritious and eliminate what is harmful. This occurs on all levels of being. When we do not possess a sense of this right to our own life then we lose our grounding, both psychologically and energetically, and lack confidence and authority about who we are and where we belong. The right of the Sacral Chakra, which is located below the navel in the area of the pelvis, is our right to pleasure and abundance. When we deny ourselves ease and pleasure, abundance and prosperity we operate in a paradyne of lack and limitation. Whether we experience guilt or a sense of unworthiness we are not claiming our right to that which matches the abundance and creativity of the universe. The right of the Solar Plexus Chakra, located below the sternum, in the area of the stomach, is the right to our own power. This means that we know we are worthy of what we say we want, and we have sufficient self esteem to generate confidence and personal power. The right of the Heart Chakra is the right to give and receive love. Many people only experience love as a giving out without cultivating the capacity to receive. When we allow love to enter into our lives we calm the heart and stabilize our emotions. The right of the Throat Chakra is our right to self expression. When we express our truth, both our personal truth and the higher truth of God we open a channel for healing to happen in our life. Suppressing self expression creates tension and pathology. The right of the Brow Chakra is our right to our own thoughts. Freedom to think intuitively is essential for a strong spirit. Discernment, knowledge, intuition and imagination foster wisdom from which we make sense of the pain, loss, separation and traumas of our life. The right of the Crown Chakra is the right to our indelible connection with the Creator. Without a sense of this eternal connection we give over our spiritual will to others to define what and who we are as spirit.

By giving the right homeopathic color or sound remedy we can help the chakras stabilize. For the Root Chakra we use red for a person who does not experience the right to their own life. It has been used successfully after divorce, illness, separation and loss. Each chakra resonates with a color that brings these rights into focus and clarity. Sound remedies bring balance to the astral forces where our desires and longings can take sway over our lives and cause us to avoid fulfilling our destiny in life. This work is now being taught in weekend seminars for those who wish to see if this work is of interest to them, and in two year training programs that invite serious study and development of practical clinical skills. The Homeopathic Color Remedies These remedies were developed in 1990 in the north of England by the author. They correspond to the energy centers in the human energy system known as chakras. The chakras are vortices of energy connected to the etheric forces of the subtle bodies which exist in the auric field of a person, animal of plant. They relate to all life matter. Each chakra nourishes a particular center that, in turn, feeds energy into the ductless glands of the physical body. The physical body is the repository of energy that comes up from the earth and down from the cosmos. The earth forces are the magnetic forces that work to ground and anchor us physically, emotionally and mentally into life. They pull us down and stabilize us. The cosmic forces lift our spirit up. They have sway over our mind and emotions. They work in conjunction with the earth forces to create a flow of energy that we use in our daily life to fulfill our tasks and live out our destiny. The homeopathic color remedies work at the level of the chakras to decongest, stimulate and tonify them. They come in three different potencies of 6x, 12c and 30c and in ten different colors. The colors relate to the chakra, the endocrine gland and the life issues of that center. By adding the potentized color the chakras find their balance and encourage healing. How are the color remedies made? Homeopathic color remedies are made by taking pure water in glass tumblers and placing them in the sun. Auspicious days are chosen such as the winter solstice and

summer solstice, days of maximum and minimum light on which to make these remedies. The tumblers are placed in a quiet place without much commotion and colored theatrical gels or colored silks are placed on top of and around the glasses. The glasses are placed on small mirrors to maximize the color vibrating in the glass. The glasses are left in the day light for approximately four hours. The solution is fixed with alcohol and then potentized in the homeopathic fashion in one drop of solution to ten drops of alcohol for each dilution. Remedies are standardized in 6x, 12c and 30c potency and have been made at Helios Pharmacy in Tumbridge Wells, Kent, UK. Homeopathic “provings” A proving means that the remedies are tested out on people who are relatively healthy. Their case is taken by a homeopath and thoroughly reviewed for chronic and acute conditions, emotional states of mind and current activity level and stress. A single dose of the remedy is then given to the individual who is the prover and all sensations, feelings, activities and reactions are dully noted by the homeopath for up to three weeks. Provings of the homeopathic color remedies have revealed the interesting way that potentized colored light works on the human energy system. How to use the remedies and warnings These remedies are meant to be used in a homeopathic fashion, meaning less is more. Use them to gently stimulate the system. They are not vitamins or supplements. If you have a serious medical condition, please see your doctor immediately. These remedies, though they can be a powerful healing tool, do not heal pathology. They only stimulate the energy system.

Where Did the Color Remedies Originate? The individual colors of the light spectrum were potentized by Ambika Wauters during the Winter Solstice of 1989 in northern England. The second, more formal, proving of the colors were done in 1992 at Helios Pharmacy in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England. Those same remedies are available today to professional homeopaths as well as lay practitioners. Ambika suggests that they are similar to flower essences and tissue salts as they work to rebalance energy states.

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HOMEOPATHIC COLOR AND ASTROLOGY By Ambika Wauters, R. S. HOM, UK, director of The School of Spiritual Homeopathy, Tucson, Arizona, USA Astrology offers us a real understanding of the rhythms and cycles of life. We can experience the workings of the cosmos through our energy centers, or chakras. When we are in the midst of a Saturn or Uranus return or Mercury retrograde we become aware of irritation, grief, fear and negative patterns that limit our life. Our attitudes about ourselves and others emerge during challenges and they beg to be harvested from our consciousness so that we can move forward in life freely and lovingly. Healing these limitations with color vibrations is both healing and effective. The homeopathic color remedies consist of ten color remedies, proven and administered in clinical trails, over the last 15 years. They redress imbalance in the Human Energy System by stimulating the etheric field in which the chakras, or energy centers, are held. They are energy at its purest. The colors that have been made into remedies are: red, orange, yellow, green, turquoise, indigo blue, violet, pink, magenta and spectrum (all colors). Each chakra resonates with a planet. We know that Saturn affects the Root Chakra. Whenever we change home, have issues of belonging in community, tribe or family we know Saturn is working in our energy field, clearing away what is in the way of our fulfilling our destiny. When Saturn is inauspicious in our chart we will be too grounded in duty and sacrifice. When it is not strongly aspected enough we may be flighty and ungrounded. We can see, for instance, that Saturn’s recent two and a half year cycle through the sign of Cancer, may have brought up issues around housing or home, where we belong and where we can best thrive. Using homeopathic red, which resonates with the Root Chakra and with Saturn, helps anchor us in life and lets us know we are entitled to the life we say we want. It supports us to fully live our life. The planet Jupiter rules the Sacral Chakra. This is the planet of expansion and growth. When the Sacral Chakra is constricted and tight, or when pleasure and abundance, well being and self acceptance are limited we need to see where Jupiter sits in our solar chart. Using the color orange, which resonates with this chakra and planet, will help it expand and stabilize in a positive way. The Sun and Mars rule the Solar Plexus. They represent levels of personal identity and a level of aggression that helps us go after what we want in our life. Yellow is the color for this chakra and represents solar energy. It is the

homeopathic color remedy which will expand our sense of who we are in life and let our light shine brightly. When we are challenged and our Selfhood is diminished a dose of this remedy strengthens and revitalizes us. It helps the sun to shine in our inner world. Green is the color that rules the Heart Chakra, along with the planet Venus and the Sun. This color brings healing when we are tired, over-stressed and unsure about love. Pink also resonates with this center and provides a quality of gentle, loving warmth that nourishes the heart. When we are in the midst of a Saturn or Uranus return, or the planets are inauspicious because of some conjunction, these colors deeply affect our sense of well being and give us peace and joy. Mercury rules the Throat Chakra and our personal expression. During a Mercury Retrograde when communication systems crash around us and simple things become complex and mismanaged homeopathic Turquoise helps support the integrity of this chakra and the influence of Mercury. It supports us expressing our truth, both our personal truth and the Higher Truth, and using our will in a positive way to see things through. The Brow Chakra is ruled by the Moon. Every two and a half days the Moon changes signs. When we need clarity of thought and vision for our lives Indigo Blue resonates with this chakra and soothes the power of the moon’s forces on our consciousness. We are learning that eclipses create severe mental stress for people, who are dependent on its energy to stay focused and clear. When the moon becomes full many people become too highly charged with its volatile energy. A dose of Indigo homeopathic color helps stabilize this center during these times. The highest chakra, the Crown, resonates with violet. It does not correspond to a planet but opens up a consciousness to the entire cosmos itself. It works on the divine principles of spirit that transcend the zodiac. Cultivating an awareness of this center offers bedrock in spirituality that goes beyond the turning of the planets. It provides a sense of oneness with all life and awareness in the transience of even the furthest stars. Ambika Wauters, R. S. Hom, UK, www.lifeenergymedicine.com, via email at:
