Teofila Gottfried book

¿Qué Tiene que Ver Conmigo? por Teófila Gottfried

¿Qué tiene que ver conmigo lo que dice la Biblia? ¿Sirve en estos días lo que se cuenta allí? ¿No son anticuadas sus enseñanzas? ¿Qué tengo que ver yo con gente que vivió hace dos, cuatro o seis mil años? ¿Es posible aplicar a mi vida algo de lo que dice la Biblia? ¿O los Diez Mandamientos es todo lo que enseña? En tal caso ¿puedo considerarme "buena persona" si los cumplo? Lo que leemos en la Biblia tiene que ver con todos los seres humanos, sean cristianos o judíos, ateos o agnósticos, budistas, musulmanes o adherentes a alguna de las filosofías o nuevas religiones que surgen en el mundo. ¿Por qué?

Chromotherapy: A Form of Alternative Medicine?


What Is Chromotherapy?

One type of meditation on colors for a therapeutic effect on the physical body or the spirit is sometimes known as color therapy or chromotherapy. It involves deep breathing and visualization. The individual inhales while visualizing a specific color into what New Agers call "chakras" (energy centers) of the body. He or she exhales while visualizing that same color surrounding the body's aura (natural field of energy). The color is chosen based on the desired effect upon the body and/or mind. It is believed that each color of the spectrum of light affects the body and spirit in a unique way.

Does Chromotherapy Work?

Do we have any proof that deep breathing while visualizing a specific color of the light spectrum really can affect the spirit and even the physical body? What are the claims? And, can anyone test them? The claims have been made and let's remember that anyone who can breathe should be able to test them. So, no doctors, scientists, or researchers are necessary to put the claims of chromotherapy to the test.

Chromotherapy by Color:

RED - It is said that red is a hot color that improves vitality, raises the temperature of the body, is an aphrodisiac, uplifts a depressed mood, and even stimulates the liver and blood circulation. If everyone learns to inhale and exhale red to raise body temperature, will we no longer need sweaters and blankets? If everyone learns chromotherapy to inhale/exhale red, there will be no more depression so severe that it leads to suicide? And, where is the evidence that the world needs the color red as an aphrodisiac considering that its overpopulation is proof that the command of God to be fruitful and multiply is one biblical command that even God haters keep--even if sin has to be committed to enjoy that command. Should we really tell people to learn to meditate on red so that the next time they're in danger of suffering hypothermia color therapy can be the first to respond to the emergency before medics arrive?

Orange - We are told that orange is the color that helps to strengthen immunity, alleviate pain, combat fatigue, and even stimulates the respiratory system. Will people with HIV and other adverse conditions involving immunity be able to strengthen their immune system? Are we to tell people with asthma, COPD, emphysema, bronchitis, pneumonia, and other respiratory diseases and conditions that they can improve by inhaling and exhaling orange? And, should we try telling people suffering a migraine headache or the horrific pain that an abscess tooth can cause to practice chromotherapy and meditate on orange?

Green - Green is said to be a calming color; it's funny that this is the color the world associates with envy and jealousy. There is no peace in harboring envy. The Bible calls it the rottenness of the bones (Proverbs 14:30). The color is also said to calm the mind, help combat insomnia and bring peace. Do we forget that many, (we did NOT say ALL) suffer insomnia because they have a guilty conscious? There is no peace in such cases; and that is a good thing, because as long as guilt is present there is a greater chance of repentance. However, millions suffer from insomnia for various reasons NOT associated with guilt. Chromotherapy meditation on green is not helping them. If it were effective, the sale of over-the-counter and prescription strength medications would have ceased to generate billions of dollars in sales per year.

Violet - Violet is said to be the color of spirituality and intuition. Supposedly, it helps to calm fears, has antiseptic properties, and aids in relieving contractions and spasms. It is also said that it is beneficial in helping anemia. The claims of chromotherapy, understandably, are ludicrous to many people, despite efforts to encourage practice of the system. Will meditation on violet eliminate the need for antiseptics? Will fears be calmed by a color; and should anyone with any form of anemia be encouraged to believe that inhaling and exhaling an imaginary violet light is going to help them in any way, shape, or form?

The questions raised behind the claims of the power of meditation on various colors of the light spectrum help to reveal just how much the philosophy of chromotherapy is out of touch with reality. But, what about the spiritual part of color therapy? If people would be more willing to view meditation on light of various colors with a more "spiritual" mind, could there possibly be some truth to the fantastic claims? And, what about those who believe that the Bible is the word of God and the final authority on spiritual matters? Can Christianity and chromotherapy mix?

A Biblical Perspective

The Holy Bible certainly is not silent when it comes to teaching truths about physical, mental, and spiritual health. In the Old Testament, the Lord taught his people to wash their hands. He also told them that if they lived in obedience to them that none of the diseases that afflicted the nations around them would afflict them. Remember when the Pharisees spoke of the tradition of not eating before washing one's hands (Matthew 15:2)?

Thousands of years later it was discovered among those who did not know the Bible that the simple act of thoroughly washing the hands prevents the spread of many deadly diseases. The Bible teaches that life is in the blood (Leviticus 17:11). This is taught in biology and is absolutely true. God also ordered circumcision in Israel; and we see that the women of that nation did not suffer from cervical and other cancers afflicting females of pagan nations. This is not coincidence since the medical world has learned that there is a connection between a lower incidence of these types of cancers when circumcision is practiced.

The word of God reveals that there are health benefits in honey (Proverbs 24:13), and that bread should be made of whole wheat, not the genetically modified "wheat" of today, rather of natural, heirloom varieties of wheat such as spelt and kamut. So much more can be pointed out that reveals the biblical teachings on health and wellness for the mind, body, and spirit. None of these teachings are in agreement with the philosophy behind chromotherapy.

Why meditate on violet light when we need an antiseptic when all we have to do is practice good hand washing and use the numerous natural antiseptics that God put on Earth? Why would we meditate on green to obtain peace when the word of God says that Jesus is to be our peace? We read, "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:7).

The teachings of chromotherapy say that orange stimulates the respiratory system, that blue helps to relieve burns and is anti-inflammatory, that red improves circulation and liver function, etc. But, the apostle Peter wrote to believers saying, "...by whose stripes ye were healed" (1 Peter 2:24).

"Whose" refers to the Lord Jesus. "Stripes" refers to the beating that Christ endured. A person may chose to reject the scriptures of the Bible and receive the claims of chromotherapy. Or, he or she may choose to reject the claims of chromotherapy and believe the Bible. The fact is that biblical scripture and the teachings behind color therapy clearly do NOT agree.

Hello, I want to say thank you for your article, I have been searching for answers regarding chromotherapy, and yours is the first i've found. My concern is this, I am not interested in meditating on color or using it in any mystical way. I get severe migraines and I have figured out that a rose colored lens is very soothing for my eyes. If this is against Gods word, I will not use tinted lenses. Do you have any ideas or scriptures you could share regarding my concerns? Any feedback would be immensely helpful and appreciated. Thank You! God Bless, -ErinM

To Erin:

I see nothing wrong with you using the pink lenses to help alleviate migraines, because no meditation or chants or the like is taking place. So, use them if they help you. And we all have to remember that God smiles on our willingness to obey. The sincere prayer for His guidance when we have questions will surely grant us a response from Him of His approval or disapproval. I also strongly suggest getting to the bottom of what's causing the migraines, in case something serious is going on. Some foods that can cause them in some people include: smoked meats, msg, red wine, and pickled foods. Also, please keep in mind the dangerous effects that cell phone usage, excessive exposure to computers, and WIFI have on the body. We recently learned of a company called Less EMF Inc. Most of their products are reasonably priced, and everything we've purchased from them works. And you might want to consider natural relief for migraines such as CoQ10, feverfew herb, peppermint, and butterbur herb. Please check with your doctor to make sure you can safely used these herbs. You might also want to type into our search engine the keyword: health to pull up a list of the very helpful and interesting articles we've published on natural health.
