Which Element Best Describes Your Body?
The Five Elements of Chinese Medicine is a theory for how the world around us behaves and how our bodies interact with nature. Each element is part of a continuous cycle: Fire burns and creates Earth. Earth is full of rich Metals. With Metal, tools are created and carry Water. Water nourishes the trees and Wood. Wood burns and Fire is ignited, restarting the cycle. Although our body is a composition of each of the five elements, every person's body is thought to be dominated by one element at any one time. See what resonates for your body:
Fire - The Fire body type tends to possess a pointy nose, chin, and top of the head. The Fire element body is shaped like a torch, pointed on the top, narrow at the bottom, and flared in the middle. The fire element handles the circulatory, glandular, and immune systems. This includes the heart, small intestine, and the lymphatic system.
Recommended foods for the fire body type include bitter foods, grains, vegetables, dark leafy greens, beans, and seeds. These foods tend to keep the fire at bay, avoiding an overabundance. Foods to reduce are chocolate, salt, meats, stimulants like coffee, and hot spices.
Earth - The Earth body type may be shorter in stature, with a short body, short fingers, and neck. The face tends to be square, while the body is pear-shaped with rounded buttocks. The Earth element rules the digestive and structural systems within the body. This includes the stomach, spleen, and muscles.
Recommended foods for this body type include root vegetables, leafy greens, and light proteins such as legumes and fish. Foods to reduce are refined carbohydrates, dairy, iced drinks, and processed foods as they gunk up the digestive system and overtax the spleen and stomach.
Metal - The Metal body type tends to have defined facial features and broad, square shoulders. However, their features tend to be thin in nature, such as thin lips and eyelids. The Metal element rules the intestinal, respiratory, and skin systems, as well as assisting with the immune system.
Recommended foods for this type include those that have a dispersing effect and promote energy circulation. Foods sour in nature, like sauerkraut and lemon water, are best. Foods high in minerals like leafy greens and vegetables are also good choices. Foods to reduce include dairy, red meat, and bitter foods.
Water - The Water body type has a tendency toward "thickness." The face tends to be large and round, with a wider base, while the body is full. The Water element rules the kidneys, bladder, bones, nerves, and teeth.
Recommended foods for this type include pure water (not what is contained in juices, coffee, etc.); blue, purple, and black foods; root vegetables; seaweeds, and seafood. Consider black beans and purple carrots. Foods to reduce include sugars, alcohol, caffeinated drinks, and frozen and raw foods.
Wood - The Wood body type tends to be slender with a long face, body, and fingers, similar to a tree. The liver, gallbladder, tendons, ligaments, and sinews are all controlled by the wood element.
Recommended foods for this type include anything sour and green with stalks like chard, kale, and spinach. Try to reduce alcohol, processed foods, high-fat foods, and most dairy, as these foods can restrict the free flow of energy and blood while wreaking havoc on the function of the Wood element.
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Vibrant health can be defined as balanced, umimpeded energy flows throughout the body. Use our Quantum Balance Crystal (now on sale) to assist in balancing the elements for your particular type of body.
Hand Positions (Mudras) For Well-Being
The ancient yogic practice of hand positions known as mudras is based on the system of energy currents flowing in the body. All energy pathways (meridians) run through the hands, and these positions stimulate various meridians in ways that create changes in the body. These can be practiced anywhere and at any time the need is felt. Hold the positions for 5-10 minutes, or until symptoms diminish or disappear.
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Normalizing and revitalizing the energy centers of the body is what our Subtle Energy Formulas are all about. Use the formulas in the Life Energy Pack to enhance your mudra practice.
Telepathy Really Is A Thing
Fascinating research out of the University of Washington successfully replicates a direct brain-to-brain connection between multiple pairs of people in a scientific study, following-up on the teams' initial demonstration. In order to properly conduct the study researchers needed to separate the subjects and close off certain perceptions of the study method. Each sender of thought was placed in front of a computer game where he or she had to defend a city by firing a cannon and intercepting rockets launched by a pirate ship. But, the senders were not able to interact with the game physically. The only way they could properly defend their city was through thought. When a rocket was coming or when they wanted to fire a cannon, they had to think about doing that intentionally.
Across campus, each receiver sat in a dark room with headphones on and no ability to see the computer game. Their right hand was positioned overtop the touchpad that would fire the cannon when tapped. If brain-to-brain connection was successful between the two pairs, the send would effectively be able to get the receiver to tap the touchpad and fire the cannon.
From a technology standpoint, researchers used two types of noninvasive instruments that can connect with human brains in real-time. One participant was hooked up to a electroencephalography machine that reads brain activity and sends electrical pulses via the web to the receiver. The receiver is wearing a swim cap with a transcranial magnetic stimulation coil placed near the area of the brain that controls hand movements. This setup effectively allows one person to send a command that would in theory move the hand of another person simply through thought.
"The new study brings our brain-to-brain interfacing paradigm from an initial demonstration to something that is closer to a deliverable technology," said co-author Andrea Stocco, a research assistant professor of psychology and a researcher at UW's Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences. "Now we have replicated our methods and know that they can work reliably with walk-in participants."
It was found that accuracy varied depending on each pairing. The accuracy range was from 25 to 83 percent. Misses were mostly found to be caused by the sender failing to accurately execute the thought to send the "fire" command. The researchers also were able to quantify the exact amount of information that was transferred between the two brains. Interestingly the degree of accuracy being low in subjects who couldn't properly extend intention to the receiver also indicates that it isn't simply just thoughts that affect our reality but actually the intention. Therefore during study of the phenomenon accuracy in whether or not subjects are truly intending vs just thinking is crucial.
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: The ability to tune into someone else's mind is a common ability that most of us do, but don't define the experience as "telepathy". Our Cosmic Eye Elixir (on sale) can enhance telepathic abilities and bring you more in tune with others.
Health & Healing Hack of the Week
In the ancient arts of Taoism, there are many "light meditations" to use in any number of ways. I recommend reading the works of Mantak Chia, a Taoist and QiGong master. One of the most basic uses of light, is to simply send it to whatever needs healing in the body, whether it be a slight discomfort or an unwanted chronic condition. The body responds to light with its own healing powers, which are considerable. Imagine the light infusing and becoming the part of the body needing it. You'll find that by consistently using this method, healing will speed up, and the condition addressed will not "get worse" or have "complications". The light can be various colors, shapes, motions and intensities. The key is to KNOW this light is performing a valuable service to the body.-- From 25 No Cost Health & Healing Hacks by Boyd Martin)
