The Yin and Yang of True Health


Your body is the image of unconditional love.

When you wake up in the morning, you don’t say, “I wish there was only night.” When it snows, you don’t hope for only sunny days. Why? Each has its own special purpose that come together to make a whole. Without daytime, there is no night; without winter, nothing can grow in spring and summer. They are opposite yet totally interdependent. And they are relative. The essential nature of anything is understood only in relation to something else. This is natural law; this is how reality works at a very deep level.

Everything is always balancing and rebalancing to create a state of harmony. Harmony is when complementary things move beyond a state of balance and blend seamlessly into one—a perfect whole. This is the deeper meaning of Yin and Yang.

Illness and Health: Connections

When we apply this understanding to health and healing, we realize that the whole picture is illness and health, not illness or health. Without illness there can be no true healing. Traditional Chinese medicine always seeks to mirror natural law and create balance. Your own body can achieve harmony within itself, and then with Nature and the Universe around it.

TCM is a system of connections at all levels between all things. Your organs and their meridians create an interconnected and intercommunicating system with all the structures and other systems in your body. Your body, mind, and spirit are linked. You are part of nature and completely connected to it, so changes in nature are reflected in your body. Everything is connected to everything else; nothing exists in isolation.

This miracle of connection and intercommunication is powered by Qi. When you break physical matter down to its most essential form, it’s invisible energy! Energy is power, but this, too, is only one side of the whole. Energy also has intelligence and function. It has the ability to pass a message that informs and guides all things to achieve balance and maintain harmony.

Body, Mind, Spirit

The mind is based on knowledge from past experiences, but your body is built on all the codes of DNA from all your lives. You are not here on Earth for the first time; you have been here for many lifetimes. If you agree that we are energy beings, and that energy cannot die or disappear—only transform—then we can say we never die.

Your body and its DNA contain the genetic code to thousands and thousands of programs. These programs are based on the soul’s decision to choose these two particular parents at the moment of conception. Once the soul makes the decision to enter this life, you automatically carry two codes: one spiritual, one physical. The DNA, or genetic code, that you pick is your physical code. The spiritual code is even more important. Once you pick the spiritual code, the body has to fulfill it; the body is in the service of the spirit. Therefore, you download not only illnesses, but also the cures for them.

Illness Adjustment

The body does its best to help you achieve your goal. But when you go too far, the soul will give you an adjustment, even when it comes in the form of illness. Every health issue has a purpose. If you can see the purpose of the illness, then you don’t need it anymore. If you don’t understand the purpose, it will repeat itself in some form.

Some health problems reappear many times or even appear to be untreatable. This does not mean that they cannot be fixed, but just that the timing is not right. You might need to meet the right person, at the right time, in the right place. Or maybe instead of focusing on the condition itself, you need to focus on how to change your body in a deep way; how to change not just small things but your whole life.

Look Within

Every answer you seek is inside you. The more peaceful you are, the more information you will learn and the more answers you will receive. So never doubt your body. It has genetic and spiritual wisdom; both visible and invisible wisdom blend to make your own unique body, which is an image of unconditional love.
