Everything is energy. This guiding TCM principle helps us comprehend the world around us and our place in it. In following this teaching, we see that we are not just human beings moving in an ever-changing world. Instead, we are energy beings. All that lives, moves and breathes around and inside of us is energy. In his book, Digesting the Universe, Grand Master Nan Lu shares his wisdom on emotional energies.
Emotions are energy. Energy cannot be created or destroyed; however, it has the ability to change form. If you don’t allow emotional energies to move out of your body, how will they be transformed?
Unbalanced energetic frequencies of each organ’s emotions have to be digested or processed. Suppressed emotions don’t just disappear; they can only be transformed and reappear somewhere else in the body. If you don’t deal with these energies, where will they show up next? They have to manifest somewhere.
Physical conditions are signs of the body’s attempt to communicate. Can you decipher them? When you become more flexible and open yourself to this unique interior language, you will discover healthy ways to deal with emotions and stress.
