Our simple, caring guidance is here for you!

It is not in the scope of these pages to give you detailed clinical information, but we all know that accumulated stress can result in anxiety, depression and insomnia. And regardless of our attempts to acknowledge it as just a challenge in life, it can easily cloud vision of reality.

By feeling ‘stressed out’ our understanding can become narrowed, oppressed. On those occasions, we are unable to find harmonious solutions to the problems or conflicts disturbing the mind. We may feel frustrated, even gloomy.

We seem to lose the zest for life in direct proportion to the degree that we allow stress to adversely affect our energy systems.

By reading these pages you learn to see it differently, to treat it differently – the Chinese Acupuncture way

The more you learn, the easier it is to understand how our depression self-help method can work for you.

Depression and the Organ Functions of the Body

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) depression is related to the Organ Functions. Of these, the Liver’s job is to spread the Chi or Vital Energy smoothly throughout the body.

If the Chi is rebellious or sluggish the organs are adversely affected. And chi, considered to be the commander of blood can cause blood stagnation. This can lead to all kinds of problems, and of course, then the heart and consequently your spirit is not happy.

When the chi flow is disturbed it can result in, among other disorders negative emotions.

When you understand how this works you can, by using needle-less acupuncture, help the chi flow. You can transform what is negative into natural healthy feelings which are always positive.

The following chart shows how organs affect each other. The round cycle with arrows is the nourishing one, the arrows across show the controlling, sometimes destructive cycle.

For instance, fear, associated with the kidneys which in Chinese Medicine are regarded as the foundation of life, can affect the whole body – first as discomfort and a need to withdraw from others.

Later it can lead to complications in the Liver Chi function, therefore to anger and frustration. It can affect the lung Chi leading to grief and sadness or the Heart Chi leading to anxiety, rage and hate, or the Spleen Chi to worry, over thinking and so on.

By using our depression self-help method these negative emotions clear as well. As you know, energy never disappears, it constantly transforms and in this case to a better, quality Chi that flows in its natural way.

Anxiety-Relief

From Anxiety to Trust

When life presents its many challenges, such as can happen in close relationships where our emotions play an important role, it’s not easy to chase away thoughts of misinterpretations and mounting anxieties, which can overwhelm our positive choices.

However, I have learned that there is always a moment to recognize, then realign myself with the great Spirit, which helps me choose the reality that is trusting, positive and more objective, instead of the negative one which wants to dominate.

The negatives are forces we don’t understand but arise because of some previous experiences, perhaps even from another lifetime.

Reflection and Prayer

Achieved through reflection and prayer, the alignment to the power of God or the Essence of Being becomes real. This alignment to great Love is our job, which starts as healing any physical pain by tracing backwards from the pain through the acupuncture/neural pathways to the limbic system in the deep brain.

Here, our past traumas are stored in hypothalamus/pituitary, the command centre of the body. From there the thought attention naturally shifts to the master gland Pineal, recognized as the Seat of the Soul or the Door to Perception by well-known writers such as Aldous Huxley.

The Pineal gland is our connection point to the power grid of the Source.

Five Elements of Psychology

We can work on emotional issues in order to overcome worry, anxiety or depression the same way as dealing with physical pain. Looking at the Five Elements chart you see that worry and over thinking are emotions associated with the Earth element, therefore Spleen/Pancreas/Stomach. The nourishing energy should flow from Heart/Small Intestine and controlling energy across the cycle from Liver/GB, the Wood.

Also, anxiety is associated with the Fire element, the Heart/SI, which can become too hot and anxious. The heart, when anxious and self-centred cannot nourish the Spleen/Stomach, the Earth element, which is associated with too much thinking and worry.

Then, see the Wood element Liver/GallBladder, living with annoyance, intolerance and anger. If so, how can it nourish the Heart’s hastiness or raging fire, or control the Earth with its concerns and worries?

No harmony can reign in this situation, where a transformation is necessary in each section to attain peacefulness.

Liver anger must change into kindness, the heart’s hot anxiety to deep compassion and caring, spleen’s worry to peaceful thinking of the Origin (using the Name meaningful to you), which can make you happily hum, whistle or sing.

Being alert to thoughts is necessary for any kind of work in order to achieve what we want.

We are so clever in our thinking since as humans we have had the intellect as our master for eons. This has got us into great trouble.

Now we have to learn to reign our thoughts by using Light guidance of the all-powerful Spirit. For some of us this takes a bit of practice in meditation or prayer – not the begging kind but thankfully praising great Love.

There is a spark for shifting/changing every thought. Without that spark, there would no thinking. That spark is the switch for putting on the light of Guidance. Become alert and use that switch with your other strategies.

Use the Acu Stones

Please click to learn about our programs and the no-needle acupuncture kit. Take time to put the stones on the appropriate points. Press each stone against the skin for ten seconds so that it makes a good connection to your acupuncture channel, then just relax, meditate and watch what happens. This was my habit when I had anxiety rising in the middle of the night going through a crisis. By concentrating on centring during the treatments my trust in the process grew.

This is my message for you today about worry and anxiety – they are not real. They are phobic manifestations in our mind. When they first appear, that is the time to switch them off.

Apply other Modalities

In addition, you may want to use other relaxing ways, drink more water, eat right, exercise as a meditation – Chi Kung or TaiChi, take more Vit.C and D, take herbal tablets such as Kwei Bi Wan, which pacifies the heart and nourishes the spleen. Have those around in case you need calmness so that these relationships of the organ systems become balanced.

This is what our journey is, about the relationships and how the right psychology emerges from understanding the Five-Elements Theory.

Be Well!

I hope that you have a wonderful day. I’m having a great day now.

Keep well and be happy. Thank you, Anna

The following post is from my earlier notes;

The Role of Fear in Anxiety Disorder

If you have ever experienced anxiety attacks, even a single one of them, it has left a terrifying imprint in your mind that can fill you with irrational fears and worries. Dealing with anxiety disorder is not a small thing and fear of them can trigger new symptoms.

A friend of mine, usually calm and collected, asked for help on how to deal with anxiety and fears. A devastating experience that took place a decade ago had landed her in the hospital. Now the symptoms had appeared out of the blue.

She had carried suppressed anxiety stress all these years.

They had emerged as:

  • The feeling of being stressed out

  • Irritability

  • Restlessness

  • Inability to concentrate

  • Fears

  • Fatigue

  • Insomnia

  • Muscle tension

  • Diarrhea

  • Occasional chest pain

Extremely Western in her lifestyle, my friend felt that the Chinese Medicine approach was too alien to her. But to overcome her constant state of tension and paralyzing symptoms she was open to try other alternatives. I suggested that she go to www.PanicAway.com to check out Barry Joe’s anxiety self-help system. He has assisted tens of thousands of people to get their lives back on healthy track again.

Symptoms vary from person to person, therefore the ones in the above list may not be similar to yours, but if you suspect that your symptoms belong to the anxiety disorder category, you may also want to learn about our non-invasive Anxiety Self Help page.

With either approach, you’ll be glad you followed through!

If any questions or comments come to your mind about stress and especially about anxiety disorder please feel free to convey them to me. I’ll be happy to listen and exchange ideas and experiences with you!
