[Note: by Rose Ann Schwab] The channeling of healing energy occurs when one allows oneself to be a vehicle or channel through which healing energy can flow. In the use of healing energy it can have a profound effect. Colors of the chakras also used by Healers to read energy in the auras and whether it is healthy, unhealthy, blocked or free flowing. It is important when acting as a channel for healing energy or channeling, to centering and protection of oneself. By using deep breathing exercises and visualization, the Channeler is able to prepare themselves for the gift they are about to use. The secret of channeling healing energy is ALLOWING yourself to feel connected to a positive energy source and allow the free flowing of the energy through you to someone else. By tapping various energy sources within our bodies and without we are able to connect in other ways. These centers are natural doorways to positive energy. When we associate words with the experience, we can also open doors in this manner. The word "love" will make us feel relaxed and peaceful. Using the word "love" connects us to the energy source that is love. Words therefore can be used as a connection to a positive energy source. Colors are sources of positive energy with each color having a different source and connection to the energy. Red is the color of physical energy and energizes us. To over energize will cause restlessness. The color red when used in healings signifies physical strength and vibrancy. This color is also good for sluggish livers. Orange is the color of emotional happiness. Cloudy orange is seen in an aura when there is some kind of physical irritation. It is a good color to use healing on bladder and hips. Yellow is the color of the intellect and usually large amounts of yellow around the head area can be found. Those who are intellectual or make their living using their minds will have a great deal of yellow in their auras. This color is good for general toner and can be used to bring healing to the kidneys. Green is the basic color of physical healing and you will find this color predominantly used in healings and the most predominant color in the aura because light souls are going through a continuous healing process. In using this color you are promoting growth, health, security, and regeneration. When concentrations of green are found in a particular area, it indicates healing is taking place. Blue is the color of peace and can be used for most situations as a general healing color. This color if found as a predominant color indicates this light soul is inclined to be spiritual and peace loving. Channeling the color Blue then white will help in calming effects. Indigo is a mixture of more blue and then red. In a light soul it represents spirituality and passion. It can also indicate wisdom which is spiritual (blue) and knowledge gained through experiences and lessons (red). It is used to quiet anger and any negativity. It can also be used on light souls who have had a lot of lessons or experiences and have not developed into wisdom. Violet - represents spiritual mediation and is also a stimulant for psychic awareness. This color is used for general spiritual or emotional healing. Usually significant amounts are found in the A Aura. This is perceived as advancement in spiritual growth and levels. White has all the colors including the healing colors and can be used for any type of healing. It represents purity, protection and unconditional love. If you are feeling threatened or someone is bombarding you with darkness and negativity, using and enveloping white light through and around you will protect you. White represents a very high degree of spirituality. Predominant white auras are rare. Pink is the color of unconditional love with the physical energy of red and the spiritual qualities of white. This color would nourish someone who has trouble giving and receiving love. Pink as a predominate color aura represents modest or quiet and loving light soul. This color also shows large capacity for devotion. Gold has a quality to create a structure for healing within a light soul. With using this color and surrounding the area then with green healing energy it will help in aiding the physical healing. Gold as a healing color is used for restructuring, but also is considered very spiritual. As with white, the gold represents unconditional love. Gold auras are rare. In channeling using white light and channeling using mother earth energy helps to give an equal balance of positive energy force.
