Bubbling Spring of Health and Confidence

January 12, 2013 , , , ,

I was reminded of a meditation technique I used to practice, but have almost forgotten. The bubbling spring meditation is an active way to make contact with the earth element and move stagnant energy in the body.  It is powerful and easy to learn.  I need to brush up and use it, since it is vital to remember how energy flows (and becomes stagnant) in the body.  Kidneys, as well as kidney chi, are the source of confidence and mental clarity.  I think this is the big mental illness plague confusing and freaking out the United States.  The kidney chi of the nation has been trashed with coffee and alcohol, drugs and junk food.  The adrenal gland of the nation is shot from constant flight or flight paranoid delusional thinking.  This is a people in need of contact with the earth, our supporting element. The water element of your body meets the earth at a specific point on the bottom of your foot known as the kidney one point. You can learn about this in more detail from a teacher of qigong, Tai Chi, or any Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, such as an acupuncturist.  I encourage you to do so.

Kidney one, a point to be found on the sole of your foot,  is the important gateway to health available with each step you take.  All you need to do is to find kidney one and start to know how it makes your life either lovely or hellish.  Once you know, you will respect the kidney meridian.  I spent a lot of time in dementia wards for a few years when my mom needed care.  We rescued her from that care because the standard of care  was to  dehydrate the helpless seniors to death. A few years later all the citizens of my country, including the congress, resemble the folks we met in the locked dementia wards.  They are angry, and irrational like crazy fire.  Kidney chi, gentle reader, kidney chi.

The water element is as unhealthy in our emotional society as the bodies of polluted water are around the globe.  We polluted the water on earth the same way we emotionally pollute our society.  We dis the flow.  We fight the river.  We ignore the Tao.  Simple steps can be taken to restore balance and order. Awareness is the key.

I wholeheartedly agree – life and society is so busy that we forget to pay attention to our bodies. And not every illness needs a handful of pills to cure, meditation does wonders for the body and the mind.
