“I can see clearly now, the rain has gone.
I can see all obstacles in my way.
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind.
It’s gonna be a bright, bright, bright sun shiny day.” Jimmy Cliff
The Wood Element, when in balance, is about seeing clearly, having clarity. The Gall Bladder Meridian starts at the sides of the eyes and travels down the side body to the fourth toe. The Liver Meridian begins at the Big Toe and travels up the in seams of the legs through the belly to the floating ribs. When we breathe these Meridians we are using the ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine practice of Yi Chi Li, moving our consciousness with our breath to open up the flow of energy in these channels. It is very focusing and healing to breathe in this way….perhaps it will help you to find some Clarity too!
Check out the New Harmony Yoga 5 Elements Mini Retreat/Workshop happening at Sticks and Stones Farm on Sunday June 27th 11-1pm where we will learn lots more about the 5 Elements Theory and balance these Elements inside of us and all around us.
Thank you for meeting me here, in the search for Clarity.
