This is a LIVE-STREAM Meetup. Thanks for watching on our Facebook community group page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/NaturallyOrganichealingcenter/ Five Elements Theory is a Chinese philosophy used to describe interactions and relationships between things. According to the Five Elements Theory, all things arise from and return to the universe and are composed of these elements. This is why understanding our own connection to them is important. The five elements — wood, fire, earth, metal, and water — are believed to be the fundamental elements of everything in the universe between which interactions occur. Each Chinese element has its own characteristics and associations and each plays a crucial role in the balance of the universe. No element is stronger or more important than another, and each has its own defined strengths and weaknesses. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a healing system of Eastern medicine developed in China more than 2,000 years ago, incorporating therapies that are in some cases millennia older. One of its guiding principles is to “dispel evil and support the good.” In addition to treating illness, TCM focuses on strengthening the body’s defenses and enhancing its capacity for healing and to maintain health. It sees the key to health as the harmonious and balanced functioning of body, mind and spirit, and holds that the balance of health depends on the unobstructed flow of qi (pronounced chee) or “life energy” through the body, along pathways known as meridians. During this Meetup gathering, we will be focusing on the traditional Chinese medicine....including the use of medicinal plants, essential plant oils, and Qigong principles. Qigong is a 5,000 year-old mind-body practice -- as well as an energetic form of movement done to enhance the flow of qi in the body. By integrating posture, body movements, breathing and focused intention, Qigong is designed to improve mental and physical health.
Each Thursday, I invite you to allow me to guide you through a simple and gentle meditation process of clearing and reprogramming the pattern created by the emotion in the body's cellular memory to release the pattern held in the limbic system of the brain. I will be facilitating these meditations via Facebook Live on my Profile page at https://www.facebook.com/staceyhall1 . And, if you RSVP here, you will be sent the link to watch the recording via message here on Meetup.com Expect to feel a sense of inner peace, deep relaxation and/or greater flexibility in the way you handle situations. The American Medical Association (AMA) states 80 percent of all health problems are stress related, and even the conservative Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that 85 percent of all diseases appear to have an emotional element. Each emotion has its own vibratory signature, and when intense emotions are felt, they can become trapped in your body, much like a ball of energy. "These “balls of energy” can become lodged just about anywhere in your body, where they can then cause disruptions in your body’s energy system, which underlies your physical system much like an invisible matrix." -- Dr. Bradley Nelson "Emotions have a negative and positive polarity. We must be able to access both polarities of all of our emotions to be fully alive." -- Dr. Carolyn L. Mein "The body holds emotional patterns regardless of conscious awareness. Sometimes we bury our emotions and they are stored in the body until sufficient pressure builds, producing pain or disease in the area." -- Karol K.
