Qi and Body Health
This is a question about jade and relationship to body "qi". What
does this mean? What is the significance of different colors of jade? And
what does it mean when the jades, like the Chinese health instruments (rollers)
and pendants listed here and on Ebay auctions say that you will infuse them
Qi is the Chinese name for the body's life force, energy, including the field
of of qi outside of the body (you know that uncomfortable feeling you have
when someone is too close, in your "space? You are feeling them in your
qi field). The practices of taiqi (tai chi), qigong
and Reiki (ki or qi) all involve
keeping the body qi flowing smoothly along acupuncture meridians. When an
acupuncture point is not open, the qi does not flow smoothly.
Traditional Chinese medicine culture has used jade for centuries to protect
and balance the body qi. The qi of the jade, its mineral composition, has
the energy ability to help body qi. So if you are wearing jade for your body
qi, it is very important to know that the jade you have is real jade, and
that it has not been treated with acid to give it translucency, and that it
has not been dyed. Burmese jadeite that is inexpensive and has good color
is probably treated with acid and dye. The natural Chinese jade on my web
site and auctions is natural and real jade, except for red bangles and the
pi pendants, which have been enhanced by laser, but not treated with chemicals
I am a qi healer/practitioner and Reiki Master, so I can infuse your jade
with healing qi before I mail it to you. I practice daily to have the ability
to get and use qi from nature, and use it for healing. In meditation, I I
hold the item in my hands, and get qi from heaven and earth through the acupoints
in my head and feet, and bring it to my dantien, or middle energy center,
and then move it through the exit acupoints in my palms to your jade piece.
It is similar to what I would do if I were giving you a qigong or Reiki treatment.
I like doing it, as it feels good for me to move energy.
In Chinese medicine, the body organs of kidneys, liver and gallbladder, spleen
and stomach, heart and lungs all correspond to the acupuncture meridians,
which are responsible for health or illness in various parts of the body.
The relationship of these is different from western medicine; for example,
liver is related to problems of the eyes and other seemingly unrelated body
conditions. These organs also have energetic colors related to them, and it
is interesting that these are also the colors of jade.
- Green, the most popular color,
relates to the liver and spleen, the life energy of the body. Anger disrupts
the liver and causes illness. Green color of jade supports love, justice,
compassion, generosity and kindness. Anger causes illness of the kidney
related organs, causing headaches, and injures the immune system
- White is the color for the lungs,
and enhances spirituality. Anxiety and sorrow are illness of the lungs
- Red is the color for the heart,
and enhances energy and protection. Excitement and excess of mind and spirit
injure the heart, creating insomnia, and confusion and restlessness, and
- Yellow is related to the stomach
and spleen, which is damaged by pensiveness, "nit-picking", excessive
concentration. Illness here includes elevated blood pressure, weakened immunity
and tendency towards colds. Yellow brings relaxation and digestion
- Black or blue jade is related
to the kidneys which are damaged by fear, and healed by wisdom which the
black and blue colors represent.
Lavender jade is related to the
"shen" or spirit. Lavender jade inspires wisdom, meditation and
spiritual growth. According to Chinese tradition and wellness, babies, children
and young women should not wear lavender jade, as it is reserved for more
Jade is beautiful and healthy to wear. Enjoy your jade! Let me know if you
have any more questions about jade and qi.
