I remember Peter Mandel demonstrating a very simple way of choosing Colourpuncture treatment on Colourpuncture Update: he used just two crystals on his model – Silver and Gold – on the ‘Information points’ (Th8 Reflex Zones on the skull) and asked her to ‘tune in’.
She described her bodily sensations and her feelings and he gave us several treatment options based on that. I also remember several visits to some experienced and open minded medical doctors for various problems who would say after a brief initial conversation: “OK, I know what you need, let’s check with diagnostics”. They were always spot on clarifying the problem, well before the first test results. I was always in awe of how talented and experienced Masters from different branches of medicine can pick up the ‘perfect’ treatment quickly and seemingly effortlessly using the diagnostics not as a sole (and rigid) indicator but as a confirmation/correction to their initial impression of the patient.
With years of my own Colourpuncture practice – while I feel I’m still learning – I can totally relate. Most of the time, I feel/know what to give to my patients – and it works. So here is an attempt to summarise 5 easiest ways to choose your ‘perfect’ Colorpuncture treatment. My current approach is simple: unless we are on a set sequence with a patient (Prenatals; relationships; boundaries; Mother-Father therapy; hormonal balancing; strengthening of immune system etc), I often do an ‘opening’ treatment and adjust my initial plan (based on a long term therapy strategy and the outcomes of the previous sessions) to what flows naturally. Colourpuncture system is self sufficient; with a good working knowledge of it very often you can go by the name of the treatment based on diagnostics, cross-check diagnostics, ‘keywords’ and observations. This is a method which is also used by many Acupuncturists – while checking with tongue and pulse, they go with the ‘pattern’ of clinical picture and point indications which are aptly described in Acupuncture points names.
And here is a ‘short cut’ for physical conditions and mental health problems: apart from your Colourpuncture and other diagnostics, the easiest first step in choosing your treatment or creating your own protocol is to research an already diagnosed condition and Acupuncture points (there are plenty of good quality scientific research articles on Acupuncture) and then ‘translate’ Acupuncture into Colourpuncture colours. We need to remember that Colorpuncture was originally based on Acupuncture; so it’s often a straightforward translation but you do need to have a good working knowledge of Colourpuncture concepts and general principles. These you learn on your Colourpuncture training and I’d say to use this approach for physical conditions you will need Parts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 of Professional Colourpuncture training as these modules are focused on treating physical conditions. With Reflexology, massage etc – I’m aware that there is an effort to unify the reflex areas of the skin between Acupuncture and other reflex zones based therapies so you may want to research this.
When your therapy is more ‘person-based’ and not just ‘let’s fix this one problem’ approach, I think choosing our intuition as a guide, we step deeper and with more intention and responsibility into our roles of Servers – as therapists, we serve other people and so intuition may well be your divine guidance if you wish – to help this person, not to make our job easier 🙂 And before we dismiss the ‘guidance’ and stick to ‘sceptical’, how do we know this isn’t so?? Having said that, I won’t just rely on our intuition completely – I’ll cross check by questions around disease patterns/principles or/and diagnostic; but I’m always fascinated by insights/intuition and grateful for them.
My view is: when we choose to fully listen to and rely on our ‘insight’ only, we get too much into ‘I’m a Psychic’ role, this just doesn’t seem right for me personally; when we choose to dismiss our intuition/insights completely, we are getting too much into our ‘Super Knowledgeable Therapist’ role which doesn’t sit well with me either. I feel that a flexible approach is best: we listen to our ‘intuition’ and we cross-check. Easy, no ego involved, continuous learning process for us as therapists: usually later on I understand why I felt that a particular protocol was needed for a particular person, based on their body reactions and their feedback. Here I’m always grateful for guidance. To get to this stage though you need months of practice, professional development and observation. But this is totally doable and a valid goal from the very beginning of your Colourpuncture training.
Your intuition here works the way you drive a car without much thinking after some months/years of driving experience – you don’t think which pedal to press or which gear to change into (in fact if you start thinking about it, chances are you will lose your focus on the road). Same with our continuous professional development, personal healing experience and practice: we internalise important principles, treatments approaches, patients observation and all – so intuition here is really your conscious and subconscious mind summarising what you have learnt and practiced up to date.
