The Esogetic Karma and Hara treatment is an advanced therapy in Colourpuncture. It broadly deals with finding, liberating and actioning out your Individual Program.
The word ‘karma’ is associated not only with awe, magic and fantasy, but also with lack of clarity and general fog. When you can’t explain something, ‘it’s your karma’ seems to fit the bill. If you are in a challenging situation for no apparent reason then ‘your karma brought this on’. The most common expression here is: you did something wrong in your past life and so now you have to suffer. Yet ‘karma’ means just ‘act’, ‘deed’ and nothing else. Karma is the concept of ‘action’ or ‘deed’ that causes the entire cycle of cause and effect – although religious in its origin, some of the natural laws of cause and effect are sufficient to explain the effects of karma. It can simply be seen as the consequences of one’s actions. Very often, though, we see the consequences (in current life or health situation) but not the roots.
Having come from the East, the concept of karma is a part of the world view of many millions of people throughout the world. Many in Western cultures or with a Christian upbringing have incorporated the notion of karma. The Christian concept of ‘reaping what you saw’ from Galatians 6:7 can be considered the equivalent of karma. But karma is not about action alone – thoughts, perception all have their bearing on it.
Colloquially, it may be summed up as ‘what goes around, comes around’.
Within the new concept of emotional intelligence as a frame of human experience, karma can be seen as the collection pool of all our emotions, whether or not consciously recognised by the person.
Karma can be viewed as the constantly present emotional side which impacts our everyday lives and determines our choices and actions. Any conscious thought, word or action arising from an unresolved emotion leads to cognitive dissonance and manifests as real results in karma.
Jung once commented on unresolved emotions and karma: “When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate”.
Whether seen as a spiritual concept, a universal law or a psychological phenomenon, the basic premise of karma is that you must have a plan, a program on which you can act. Karma is simply the law of cause and effect. In Peter Mandel’s understanding, karma is not a punishment for anything, but it is the understanding, recognition, and the resulting expansion of consciousness that determines your deeds. The only place you have to take action is NOW. And in that NOW you have all the soul experiences and all the options for action.
When we as therapists help others to heal by giving them therapy, we are in contact with that person’s karma. A therapist cannot change the karma of a client; however, by giving therapy we give impulses that liberate any unrecognised information so the person can then take action. The impulse for action comes from deep within the person we are treating; as the information becomes free it manifests itself first as a feeling: you feel ‘sense’, an unclear sensation of a change in perception. With time and some further therapy the ‘fog’ starts to clear and a more defined idea appears; this idea then gives us a very clear impulse and challenges us to take some very well defined actions.
As the next step, a dialogue between emotional intelligence and rational intelligence happens: the intellect will normally question the new life direction suggested by the liberated karma, based on previous reference points in your psyche such as values, your core beliefs, upbringing conditioning etc. However, when karma is liberated it leads to acceptance, analysing the path you have been taking so far in life, and correcting the direction.
The Karma Hara treatment highlights and enhances the ultimate goal of all Colourpuncture therapies, which is to liberate and strengthen individual recognition and understanding. If this happens then after therapy your client will be able to take a step forward, now in the unique and innately recognised direction which will lead to whole new chapters in life in which the person becomes more aware of themselves.
The term ‘dantian‘ is often used interchangeably with the Japanese word ‘hara‘ which means simply ‘belly’. In some Eastern traditions, it is considered the physical centre of gravity of the human body and the seat of one’s energy. Hara (Japanese for ‘stomach’) is equivalent to the lower of the three dantian in Traditional Chinese medicine, for the ‘centre of being’. Acting ‘from the belly’ has been considered as the only authentic action by many Eastern teachings as diverse as medicine, martial arts etc.
How will the Karma-Hara therapy help?
No matter how challenging and foggy things were for a person before the beginning of therapy, it will gradually become possible for them to understand their individual program and also to transform the fear of ‘what is and what’s to come’. When this happens, the person becomes deeply joyful and content and a true expansion of consciousness takes place. Karma treatment is a high level in the hierarchy of therapies; we do not ‘treat the karma’ but give rise to understanding and action. Administering Karma treatment in between your routine Colourpuncture light therapy healthcare will bring up symbolic indication and you will be able to put together a much more individual and effective therapy plan.
Even though there are many clear clues on karma challenges in many types of diagnostic such as EEA, Iridology and physiognomy, whatever is going on for the person you are treating will be connected with their karma. This will be covered in the Karma-Hara training training day.
The term ‘hara’ in Esogetic Colourpuncture light therapy describes the state in which the human being has found his/her original centre and are living their life from this state. This is the life of pure and ultimate authenticity. Peter Mandel also sees the Hara as a synonym for all the energies and powers that are available to us and which we can summon in order to find the true centre of our being, a true inner balance.
