Using Color for Knee Problems

January 7th, 2013 | Posted by Velda in COLORS


Inna Segal covers knee problems in her book, The Secret Language of Your Body, and suggests what colors to use for healing the possible following contributing factors:  control, blame, judgment, anger, resentment, frustration, inflexibility and feeling stuck.  It can also be unsolved family issues, problems dealing with a person, or situation and also difficulty making decisions and keeping commitments.  For many of us it is the fear of moving forward, or the need to know what will happen next.

If your are having problems with your right knee, the author points out that this might be connected to emotional issues with a significant male in your life, or fear of moving forward in your career, limited thinking, or fear of failure.  The author suggests you ask yourself this question “Where am I inflexible in my life?”

If your problems are in the left knee this relates to issues with a significant female in your life.  It could mean you are holding on to sadness, hurt, and loss from past or feeling like a victim.   You might feel constant criticism is holding you back.  The author requests you ask yourself “Am I willing to let go of controlling, blaming, and judging myself and others?  Can I give myself permission to move forward with trust, love, and certainty?”  

Hopefully you can answer either of these questions with a yes, visualize releasing that which is bothering you and then we will enjoy learning how to run healing colors into the knees.  Start by sitting down and rubbing your hands together and start feeling the heat and possibly tingling sensation in the palms of your hands.  Place your hands around your knee.  Now start visualizing a warm powerful green ray of light moving into your knee.  Visualize the green ray releasing all negative energy and generating healthy energy.



You can also visualize the pink ray of light which is the energy of unconditional love.  It releases worry, stress, and negativity replacing negative with love.

Feel free to experiment with the orange ray of light which helps bring all emotions to the surface for clearing, helping to heal a wide range of issues.  Don’t be discouraged if you can’t visualize the color.  You can wrap the knee with the a piece of clothing in the color or a gemstone in the color you choose to work with…try, believe and good healing.



The Anger Area (Liver) can hold anger at self and others, jealousy and resentment.  Traditional Chinese Medicine states anger stagnation in liver can lead to headaches, dizziness, and other health symptoms.  One can help relieve stored up anger by chanting the healing sound for liver which is “shhhhhh” combined with  the energy color of green.   Let’s start:

Take a full inhalation and chant on the exhalation ‘ssshhhhhuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu,’ extending the healing sound for as long as you can.  Repeat this exercise  3 – 6 times, releasing stress, anger, or heat held in the liver.  When you have completed the chanting, visualize sending kindness and gratitude to your liver infused with a healing green light flowing into your liver.
