In Chinese medicine, the channels governing digestion also give us the patience to persist, no matter what our external circumstances are. That’s why proper nutrition is a key to keep going with a sense of balanced well-being.
Energetically speaking, fear and excitement are two sides of the same coin. Thus the need for security often accompanies a longing for adventure. Practice taking a small risk every day – even something as simple as trying a new tea – to teach yourself not to fear the unknown. But to look forward to what’s next.
From a Chinese medicine perspective, holding on to what no longer serves is a factor in every imbalance, illness or disease.
Chinese medicine teaches that the more grounded and centered we are within ourselves, the less we will allow others’ opinions to hinder our forward progress.
