Streams of energy course through your body’s tissues: organs, bones, skin… and our perception also arises from this Source.
Illness, negative states of thought, trauma, contagious diseases, toxins… These draw against us, cause our LifeCurrent to become depleted — like silt or garbage in a stream, that may be gradually trickling to a halt.
The roots of East Asian Medicine – Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine – are over 3000 years old, and historically, spread across Asia as did the martial arts – the wisdom of many unique Masters, rooted in a deep understanding of the Unity of all Things, as well as the Individual Essence in All Things (‘The Tao and the 10,000 Things’.) Ancient medical texts speak of the body as ‘star-stuff, cosmic’ – and of human-kind, learning to walk in the mystery of existence with clarity, propriety, compassion, refinement, and trust.
There is always an Outer dimension and an Inner dimension to explore: whether you are the patient or the practitioner.
- Caring for the Outer LifeCurrent: your body – Are you feeding it well? Resting it sufficiently? Are you moving it enough, in free-flowing ways? Are you having any pain or discomfort? Are you showing signs of accelerated aging or are you getting sick frequently? Have lab tests shown problems with your blood chemistry, organ functions, blood pressure, breathing, heart function (including rhythm or valve problems), poor circulation, digestion (or blood sugar), urination, bowel function…? Are your reproductive organs healthy, and working to their optimum? What does your skin look like? Your hair? How strong is your voice? THIS IS JUST A SAMPLE OF WHAT OUTER DIAGNOSIS INVOLVES…
- Caring for the Inner Dimension of your LifeCurrent – Is your mind relaxed but also awake, observant, connected to the feelings of your Heart? If not relaxed, then consider your daily habits and lifestyle – Do you multi-task, stressing your system unconsciously, constantly occupied with thought, with lists, with “must-do-in-spite of-how-I-feel?” Are you in touch with your own talents and passions? Do you still have (or did you ever have) that spark of aliveness, excitement for life, life as possibility in each moment! Or, do you struggle to feel OK, to rise to action, to confront life’s challenges? Can you feel love when it is all around you?? THIS IS A SAMPLE OF WHAT DIAGNOSIS OF THE INNER CONSIDERS.
AT SOME BASIC LEVEL: OUR PHYSICALITY, OUR MENTAL CONSTRUCTS, OUR HEART AND OUR SPIRIT, COME DOWN TO ENERGY – OUR EnerQi. HOW IS YOURS DOING?
