In stillness lies your powerJan 18, 2021
From a Chinese Medicine perspective, when energy runs smoothly in the body, good health and a joyful spirit result.
Emotions are energy in motion and treated accordingly in Chinese medicine.
Emotional Qi needs to flow through the body, rather than stagnate and block the flow of Qi. When emotions are natural and flowing appropriately, we can release energy stagnation from the body as it arises.
Here is a simple Qi practice to release any energy of despair or fear from your body and recharge your Qi by connecting with the universal energy that is always available to us.
For the aromatic experience, I use Juniper Berry Essential Oil for this practice. Juniper Berry has an affinity for the water element and strengthens willpower and self-esteem. Just smelling the woody aroma is calming when you feel anxious, fearful and low. (if you don’t have Oils, you can order here or do it without).
Here in Europe, the days are getting a little longer, there is more light, but Winter is still very much present. In Chinese medicine, we call this period Yang within Yin. When the spark of Yang is starting to surge towards expansion but Yin still has the stronghold. What does this mean for us energetically?
"He who stands on tiptoedoesn't stand firm.He who rushes aheaddoesn't go far.He who tries to shinedims his own light.He who defines himselfcan't know who he really is.He who has power over otherscan't empower himself.He who clings to his workwill create nothing that endures.If you want to accord with the Tao,just do your job, then let go."
