It is usually recommended to take a medicine in case something goes wrong in the body. However, there may be psychological causes that are evident in the physical discomfort we feel, so taking a medication is not necessarily the right solution. The sleep cycle must be evaluated with Qi energy.
Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches that the body functions as a clock, with its energy channels or meridians called “Qi”, which also work everywhere on earth. The Qi in our bodies transports and maintains blood, adrenaline and other fluids in constant circulation, including the sending of emotional elements.
Therefore, when your body is well, it means that Qi is flowing normally, but when it is sick, it means that Qi is blocked in some parts or is of low circulation in general.
HOW DOES IT MOVE?
It is said that he makes certain movements every two hours, stopping in different parts of the body each time, until the organ reaches its ideal level, and then goes to the next stop. However, when one organ reaches its highest level, another part on the other side reaches the lowest level, to balance the act.
ENERGY TRANSFER – YIN AND YANG
Likewise, when Qi passes, what happens during those two hours is, Yin – getting energy – and Yang – releasing energy. This is one of the various meanings of Yin-Yang, the circular black and white symbol seen so often. As ‘Yin’ and ‘Yang’ take place, they carry the elements of nature (Earth, Fire, Wood, Metal and Water) throughout the body, each of which has certain energies and emotions.
-Earth is known to balance giving and receiving, including emotions of sympathy and empathy.
-Metal leads to loss, sadness and pain.
-As for water, she sustains anxiety and fear.
-The wood has resentment, jealousy, anger, stress and frustration.
-Fire has love, happiness and hate.
THE QI AND OUR BODY CLOCK WHEN WE ARE ASLEEP
The Qi repairs and re-energizes us when we are asleep, based on the different situations we face when we are awake. As a train moving around our physique, here are the organs and times in which our Qi is moving along with its meanings.
Based on what has been previously explained, the moment your sleep is interrupted you can predict the probable ailment of your body:
