Kinesiology incorporates both Eastern and Western Medicine. For this article I am talking about Eastern Medicine.

Eastern Medicine includes the Chinese 5 Element Theory, the Meridians as well as Yin and Yang. The 5 Element Theory is based on everything in the universe, including our health, being governed by the five elements of Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire.  Each element is associated with a particular organ, emotions, a colour, a season and senses such as taste and smell.   Yin and Yang is like dark and light.  They are like opposing forces yet interdependent. 

The Metal element for example, is associated with the Large Intestine and Lungs, the colour white and the emotions of grief, sadness and regret. The Large Intestine is the Yang meridian and the Lung the Yin meridian.  Stagnation, holding onto old stuff, inability to let go and flow with life, being controlled and controlling are all issues of the Large Intestine.  

According to Eastern philosophy, the body is a vessel through which energy flows along the meridians. In Chinese Medicine symptoms of various illnesses and ailments are believed to be the result of an energy block or disruption in the energy flow through the meridians.  As everything is interconnected, by clearing the energy block(s) and stimulating the flow of the imbalanced meridian this will then help with evening out the imbalances within the entire system. 

When there is a blockage or stress preventing the flow of energy the exact nature of the blockage can be identified using Kinesiology as well as what support the body requires for healing and to help bring it back into balance.

Kinesiology not only works with the physical and subtle energy bodies but also the emotional, mental and bio-chemical aspects.

We have all chosen to learn certain lessons while we are here.  (Let’s be honest life would be boring if we weren’t challenged occasionally!) Although it may not always be easy or pleasant our lessons will continue to be presented to us until we master them.

We may have chosen to learn our lessons early on in life or we may have them spread out over our life.  Whatever is the case you have chosen for it to be this way.  What one person finds easy to do may not be the case for someone else.  One thing you can be assured of is that your lessons will be uniquely challenging for you.

Be thankful always for what you have and what you have learnt along the way.  Lessons are one avenue through which we grow and evolve.  Sometimes our loved ones can be our greatest teachers in that they have chosen to help us to learn a particular lesson.   Remember to celebrate you and give thanks for the lessons you have learnt so far!

What’s your calling? Do you love what you do for work?  For most of us going to work is a drag!  We know what we don’t like doing but do you know what you would love to do?  What is it you really want to do if you aren’t happy with your job or your life?

When you find your passion and are doing what you love you rarely get sick and you feel great! It’s so important to find that fulfilment and joy that comes from living your passion. 

I found it a challenge admitting to myself that my career since the age of 23 no longer rocked my boat! To then come up with what I would love to do was also a challenge as I had to really get in touch with my heart and put judgements and beliefs aside.  It was uncomfortable working through what came up however the rewards are more than worth it. 

Now that I am doing the work I love I have a deep sense of soul fulfilment and joy. When we aren’t living our passion we just can’t have that same level of fulfilment or joy that you have when you are doing what fulfils you on that deeper level.   In time to come it will be even more important to do what fulfils you and how you can serve others through doing what you love.
