In Chinese medicine, each individual organ is associated with one of the five elements. For example, the kidneys represent the element of water and the color blue. The heart corresponds to the element of fire and the color red. These assignments make it easier to guide the healing power to each internal organ with the help of the corresponding color. This practice also makes it possible to transform disharmonious emotions into harmonious, constructive energy. This transformation is an extremely powerful practice of silent Qigong.

A sincere smile transforms disharmonious chi into loving energy, which has the power to relax, balance and heal. By learning to smile inwardly at the organs and glands, your body will feel loved and respected, and can enjoy the benefits of chi even more. Through Inner Smiling, connections are made between the organs, the colors, and the energies of positive virtues, and the relationship with the healing forces of nature and the universe is strengthened.

Inner Smile begins in the eyes and in the point between the eyebrows (3rd eye). When you activate the heart, the loving energy will overflow, and you will feel the energy of the Inner Smile flowing like a waterfall from top to bottom throughout the whole body. This is a powerful and effective remedy for stress, tension and disharmonious Chi.

5. Focus your attention on your heart; see the heart in your mind's eye and smile at it. Keep smiling until you feel the heart smiling back at you. Imagine your heart as a red rose that is gradually opening. This will fuel the fire of love and compassion in your heart. Once you feel the red light and loving presence, the cosmic healing red light from above and around you will be activated.

6. Smile at the red light and draw the red haze, love, and compassion very slowly with a long, deep breath into the point between the eyebrows. Then down through the mouth and throat into the heart, from where they gradually pass into the small intestine. Breathe out, but keep the red light, love, and compassion in the heart and small intestine. At the same time, exhale the cloudy, black or negative energy. Continue breathing like this 18 to 36 times and wait until the heart becomes bright red in your mind's eye and begins to radiate out to your tongue, mouth, nose, ears, and eyes. Let the red light swirl around you and form a red aura. Feel red energy radiating from your skin.

7. Let the loving energy of the heart radiate to the lungs. Focus your attention on the lungs; see them in your mind's eye and smile into them. Smile until you feel the lungs smiling back at you, imagine your lungs as a white rose that is gradually opening. Smell its pleasant fragrance. This will awaken the courage in your lungs. Once you feel the white light and courage in the lungs, the cosmic healing white light from above or around you will be activated.

 

8. Smile at the white light and draw the white haze very slowly with a long deep breath into the point between the eyebrows and down through the mouth and throat into the lungs. From there it gradually passes into the colon. Breathe out, but keep the white light and the feeling of courage in the lungs. At the same time, exhale the cloudy, black or negative energy. Continue breathing like this 18 to 36 times, and wait until the lungs become brilliant white and begin to radiate out to the tongue, mouth, nose, ears, and eyes. Let the white light swirl around you and form a white aura that covers your skin like autumn dew.

9. Spleen, pancreas, and stomach correspond to the golden yellow color of the element earth. Connect these three organs and smile down into them from the point between your eyebrows. First connect to the heart, then attract the clear yellow light from above and around you. You may see the golden yellow aura of a ripe wheat field. Expel feelings of worry and breathe out the hazy, stuffy energy. Breathe in the golden yellow aura and fill the spleen center with golden yellow light. Repeat 18 to 36 times. Then let the light radiate to the tongue, mouth, nose, ears, and eyes. Envelop yourself with a golden aura that puts a golden glow on your skin.

10. Kidneys and bladder correspond to the blue color of the element water. The healing blue light carries gentleness. Breathe the blue aura into the kidneys. As you exhale, dispel feelings of fear and stress. Allow the energy field to grow and breathe the blue energy in and out 18 to 36 times until it radiates from your kidneys to your tongue, mouth, nose, ears and eyes. Collect the blue haze on your skin, where it envelops you with a blue aura.

 

11. Liver and gall bladder correspond to the green color of the element wood. Kindness replaces anger, which is expelled when you exhale. Proceed as you did with the previous organs and create a green aura. Breathe out the dark red, hazy heat. Breathe in the nurturing green of the forest. Repeat 18 to 36 times until the green light completely fills the liver and begins to radiate to the tongue, mouth, nose, ears, and eyes. Envelop yourself in a green aura.

12. Smile downward into the sexual organs and reproductive system. Feel love and sexual excitement - feel the heart and sexual organs unite. Observe how the sexual energy is transformed into chi during this process. Direct orange and red light down into the sexual organs. Thank them for keeping you alive and healthy. Rest without doing anything. Gather and store the energy by smiling into the Tan Tien and letting it spiral there.
