Become more who you are

Become more who you are

There are many reasons and causes why people lose connection with their origin or destiny. Think, for example, of social pressure, expectations from society or the family, or having to bear too much responsibility at a young age, e.g. from a parent who died early, addiction in the family or other childhood problems such as abuse, abuse, trauma in the form of an illness, accident or the loss of a loved one. All events that can block and stagnate the natural flow of energy (Qi).

If such a stagnation lasts for a long time or if it is deep in the system, this can translate into a range of psycho-emotional or physical complaints. It is then by no means always clear what the cause of the complaint is. Certainly in childhood events, which often leave a deep impression, the relationship between, for example, back pain and having to bear too much responsibility at a young age because one of the parents is absent, is not always obvious. Or, for example, chronic fatigue in someone who carries with him a secret of sexual abuse or mistreatment for his or her life. With this I do not claim that there is a trauma behind every chronic fatigue, but experience shows that many complaints have their origin in an event in the past, which has caused someone to lose contact with themselves or that this has come under pressure. stand.

As if the 12 main meridians weren’t enough, there are also 8 extra meridians in Chinese medicine. With these extra meridians, acupuncturists have a powerful tool at their disposal to help people reconnect with their Yuan Qi, also known as original Qi, their potential. Or as one of my teachers puts it; they help you reconnect with ‘The Unbroken Place’, a place of wholeness. Each extra meridian has its own character, its own power, which is connected to an archetypal energy and also shows specific symptoms when a system of a particular extra meridian is out of balance or blocked.

The 8 extra meridians are also called extraordinary or miracle meridians. These extra meridians are special for several reasons. For example, in contrast to the main meridians, they are already active in the womb. The Chong Mai, for example, already arises at the moment of the first egg division. These meridians therefore play an important role in the correct formation of the embryo and are vital for the constitution of every human being, say for the specific blueprint of each unique individual.

These meridians are not only active during the initial creation process but also support us during life. In Chinese Medicine this is called the 7 & 8 year cycle of the Jing. They help us navigate through natural processes of change such as puberty, adulthood, menopause, aging with dignity, and dying. Because these extra meridians contain and can tap into our purest essence, they are also very useful to strengthen or restore the connection with ourselves if we have lost it.

They not only support us in natural processes of change, but also to maintain our connection with ourselves during difficult moments or to restore it when we have lost it. Like a woman who loses her husband shortly after the birth of her first child and experiences life as unjust and hard as a result. She’s 63 now, but she still feels like she’s all alone. It makes her cranky and suspicious. After a few treatments on the extra meridians, she tells me that she no longer recognizes herself. Things that used to annoy her deeply don’t seem to affect her that way anymore, and she can look back with some pleasure on how quickly she was able to get out of her shoes. She has become a more pleasant person for herself and her environment. In addition, she talks more easily and openly about her deceased husband and talks more about her father with her daughter.

Or like a psychologist in the transition who realizes after 2 treatments that she herself has the key to a more balanced life.
