We are coming to the last stretch of our challenge: The Five element and meridian book. This beautiful interpretation of energy through nature and the five elements is very inspiring to me. I look forward to doing these final seven repatternings on myself.
It has been a difficult time for me these past few months. I lost my niece in May and her mother, my sister Carol, in June. Too much pain, too must loss, too much…That was my issue for this session.
Metal element came up. Metal relates to letting go, loss and sadness; very appropriate. The category needed was fathering; “I provide positive fathering energy. I hold a standard and am a model of high values and ideals on how to live and interact with others.” My sister asked me to take care of her estate and guide her sons whom she left behind. That has required a great deal of wise fathering energy from me as I support them in moving forward.
The large intestine meridian was needed; it is about letting go of everything that is no longer needed. The specific statements were about:” allowing myself to cry for my losses and then I get on with living fully; I smell the inner fragrance of permanent inner peace even though I have yet to experience the spiritual reality of it.” These were powerful reminders to grieve for the loss and find peace even if I don’t believe it is possible yet.
I needed the fire element energy on my large intestine meridian to warm and soften the metal so it can be more flexible. Everything shifted and I do feel more able to bend and move with the challenges I face and hopefully tap into my fathering energy to guide my nephews with strength, structure and loving patience.
I would like to hear about your challenge. It’s not too late to jump in and take care of your own energy! Please join us….
