Spring is in the air!
Take a look around today and check out the magnificence of our green, glowing Earth. Lovely spring bulbs are reaching for the sun. Mother Nature is making her annual promise to birth new life and offer sweet renewal.
As the months become warmer and sunnier, our liver – a powerful Yin organ – kicks into overdrive. Springtime is liver time! Your liver is the ultimate spring cleaner that clears out the muck from bad habits, bad moods and bad karma.
In Western medicine the liver is considered a filter that detoxifies the body’s blood supply. As blood passes through the liver, substances such as prescriptions/over-the-counter medications/illegal drugs/alcohol and fats are broken down. The liver diminishes the negative effects that potentially toxic materials can have on our bodies.
In traditional Chinese Medicine the liver houses the negative emotions of anger, frustration and rage. The liver’s tissues are sponge-like and absorb negative emotions so they don’t “spill over” into other organs. Think of the liver as a powerful de-weeder that encourages your flowers to grow and blossom.
Here are three simple tools that blend Eastern and Western wisdom so you can re-balance your liver and glow this spring.
Practice gentle Qigong. When you practice these soft meditative movements you are “ringing out” toxic emotions that block and distort energy. Click here for the Liver Healing Sound.
Drink warm water, coconut oil and fresh lemon. This special concoction is a gentle way to stimulate, detoxify and cleanse your liver and gallbladder.
Develop kindness and compassion. The most powerful virtues in the world are also good medicine for your liver. Be kind, be compassionate. No faking allowed!
The human body is an amazing display of Yin and Yang, ebb and flow, balance and harmony. We believe that by blending the wisdom of both Western and Eastern medicine, each one of us will be led into a new level of human evolution.
May you evolve into perfect well-being, peace and harmony in your body and in your life.
