Presence and Power, Attitude and Energy

Attitude and Energy

There are many claims made for healing at an energetic level and many claiming ‘everything is just energy’

Thankfully most people don’t expect to be completely healed by visiting a health practitioner and often the most stubborn health issue/s (usually one or two) don’t ever completely resolve however long you have treatment for and however many practitioners you try.

Energy Improves

Despite this because the flow of energy improves so does your overall energy levels, some other symptoms and perhaps there is some shift, however small in the most stubborn complaint (that is manifesting at the soul/genetic level). So, for example you feel less tired, your digestion and sleep improve and you feel better, even though the original complaint, that bugs you the most, does not ever really resolve. These are often issues that run in a family, and so run deep in the genes. Some people therefore conclude that holistic medicine does not work. For others they are happy to enjoy the often unexpected benefits of other things improving.

Blocks to the healing process

When considering blocks to the healing process it is honest for the practitioner and liberating to the client to work towards a change of attitude as well as a change in energy. A change of attitude is a change of perspective and a change of thinking and this is more likely to last in the long run and usually has more chance of persisting to impact us at the deeper levels where the resistance and inherited karmic patterns are deeper. 

Energy and power, consciousness and presence

This corresponds to the elements of water; power. And air; presence. Blocks to healing can arise in relation to both. In this excerpt from his book ‘Let The Numbers Guide You’ Shiv Charan shows that it’s not just about energetic change;    

‘Different religious and cultural communities tend to emphasize different pairs of numbers. The 2 and 8 are numbers (water element) that have been central too much in the oriental way of thinking. The association of the Tao with the element water, the study of the polarities of yin and yang, the eight trigrams of the I Ching, the eight spokes on the wheel of dharma in the Buddhist tradition…

Generally speaking it is harder, or just more challenging since it calls for more consciousness and responsibility, to negotiate a change of a person’s attitude as opposed to changing the energy flow, whether within the person or in their environment. Therefore, water power or energy flow has tended to become the popular concerns of practices such as Feng Shui since it does not call upon the responsibility of the people to influence their environment and their own lives. Rather it places all the emphasis on external factors in the naïve hope that people will gain benefit from this without their own contribution of presence. (Note this is contrary to the original spirit of Feng Shui, which concerns itself with both the movement of the wind and the water powers)’ (Shiv Charan Singh p 181 & 144 – 145 Let the Numbers Guide You)

Your organs are characters in the story of your life

Healing from the inside out

Considering the story of your life; every organ is a character with a special role to play. Depending on health and lifestyle choices, organs can become friends or foes. Learn how to harmonize your inner supporting cast; achieving inner health, harmony and peace.

Your organs are people!

The 10 major organs of the body are alive in us! The liver is the teacher, the heart is the emperor and the lung is the artist, and also the warrior. By getting to know these teachers within and applying their teachings you can transform your health and your life.

The distinction between body and mind and the brain and the body are created but us. Medical science continues to reveal that the hormones made in our organs affect the brain as much or more than the brain affects the organs. For example, our white cells know how to adapt and engage the body to kill off foreign invaders. They have memory, make decisions and communicate.

Yin and Yang Organs

The yin organs resemble yin in being more dense, nourishing and static. They store vital and purified substances such as blood, qi, and body fluids. They connect us to our spirit and we can’t easily live without them. They are the Spleen and Pancreas, Kidney, Heart and Lung. The Liver operates as the bridge between our spiritual and material life.

The Heart and Lung can be seen as having hollow and dense aspects and so they are seen as the more yang of the yin organs. Also because they are in the upper (yang) part of the body. The Heart in particular is constantly beating and is mostly hollow, it moves and stores the blood. It is the most yang of the yin organs.

The yang organs connect us to our material life. They are active, digesting and transforming the substances that are moved along them. Yang corresponds to activity and so these organs are constantly filling and emptying. They change, separate and excrete the products of the food we eat in order to give us energy. They are also more in contact with the exterior of the body if we consider the mouth as an extension of the stomach, the bladder ending in the urethra and the intestines ending at the anus.

Extraordinary Organs

These are the brain, uterus, bone marrow and Gallbladder. These are organs that are hollow but filled with purified substances. They are then yang in structure but yin in function.
