Energy Healing the Buddhist Yogic Way

Energy Healing with Chi, Shen, and Life Force Energy

Energy healing with chi or prana strengthens and further potentiates all other holistic based modalities. For this reason, chi is an essential element in all therapies at Buddha’s Alchemy.

Chi is a biomagnetic energy that flows through all living things. It is a life animating energy that does not exist in life forms that have died. While Jing is an energy that sustains form, including inanimate form, chi is an energy that sustains life. In Kirlian photography, we can see chi surrounding living forms.

Chi draws vital energy to where it is depleted and most needed, and raises the energy threshold of depleted or damaged tissues. Chi restores energy flow from healthy tissues to tissues damaged due to injury or illness. Chi reinstigates normal celluar function through cell revitalization, and replaces aberrant tissue forms.

Shen is mind force energy, and has the capacity to direct chi in specific ways. Buddhist siddhi healing practitioners cultivate shen by strengthening concentration, feeling awareness, powers of perception, attention, and intention. Skillfully developed shen also allows a practitioner to connect to the vastly greater energies of Life Force, which is the real healer.

My favorite time of year again - wild rose harvest. Rose is considered an astringent herb.

Rosa spp. (hips/fruit/flower) – Rose

TCM: Jing Ying Zi (hips); Ayurveda: Gulab, Shatapatri

Rose hips are neutral to cool, drying, astringent, and sour in TCM, and bitter, astringent, pungent, and sweet in Ayurveda. In TCM, they affect the Kidneys, Bladder and Large Intestine. In Ayurveda, rose petals and hips are used, and they are considered balancing to the 3 doshas, but are especially effective at reducing Pitta. They affect the plasma, marrow, blood, nerve and reproductive dhatus.

Properties of Rosa spp. flowers are anti-bacterial, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, antidiuretic, anti-viral, aphrodisiac, antispasmodic, blood tonic, carminative, expectorant, kidney tonic, and sedative.

Properties of Rosa spp. hips/fruit are stomachic, antidiarrheal, cholesterol lowering, antidiuretic, stabilizing and binding, astringent, blood tonic, diuretic (in Ayurveda), laxative, nutritive, carminative.

Traditional and modern indications for Rose include:

-kidney and bladder infections
-dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, menorrhagia
-gout and rheumatism
-anxiety, depression
-various inflammations

In Ayurveda, Rose is also commonly added to formulations for treating skin problems (for its anti-Pitta properties), and for beautifying skin. In Western cosmetics, it is frequently employed as an anti-aging and nourishing component of the same. In Middle Eastern traditions and in India, Rose carries a spiritual connotation as a symbol of deep love, and is especially referenced in the Sufi and Bahai teachings. Its scent can be carried around the neck of the wearer to help induce deep states of meditation and devotion.

Examples of TCM patterns where Rose can be employed include: Spleen Qi Deficiency, Heart Qi Deficiency, Blood Deficiency, Kidney Yin and Yang Deficiencies, and Essence Deficiency. A well-known TCM formula that includes Rose and treats spermatorrhea is Jin Suo Gu Jing Wan.
