Energy Clearing - Limitless Living — Limitless Living. Did you ever watch Charlie Brown?

Energy Clearing - Limitless Living — Limitless Living

I hardly remember anything about the cartoon, but there is one image I can always pull up clearly: PigPen. Turns out we’re all a little like PigPen. We might look like nothing more than physical bodies, but in reality we are all made out of electricity; we’re all giant balls of light (or sound) that fill and sustain our bodies, but expand beyond them too. These balls of energy hold who we are, our thoughts and memories, our emotions and stories too. What you really are is a giant, brilliant, swirling, throbbing, growing, changing, ever evolving collection of all these things – which for convenience we sum up as: energy. Here’s the thing, this energy part of you is kind of like velcro. Our own things get all caught up in it, but so do the things of other people. Basically, the thing isn’t self cleaning. That’s where Clearing comes in It’s like an Energetic car wash. It Does What Needs Doing. The 7 Chakras for Beginners.

The seven chakras are the centers in our bodies in which energy flows through.

This information has several implications for lovemaking, alone or with a lover. Felice Dunas, Ph.D., author of Passion Play, is an acupuncturist and expert on Chinese medicine and the health benefits of erotic love, and she discusses these reflexology points in detail. Dunas says that if a woman frequently receives stimulation of the clitoris and surrounding area while the interior of her vagina remains untouched, her kidney system can be over-stimulated. This can lead to an imbalance making her susceptible to kidney-related symptoms, such as bladder conditions, memory loss, gynecological disorders, back or knee pain, and more. For these reasons, it’s recommended that you not to receive oral sex or stimulation too often without also stimulating the whole penis and/or the interior of the vagina. During intercourse, vary your strokes, not only for pleasure – it’s beneficial to your health as well. Genital Reflexology - Part 1 of 2 - Extatica. You’ve probably heard of foot reflexology, where massaging various parts of the feet energetically stimulates or relaxes the various organs of the body reflected in those parts.

Well, have you ever heard of genital reflexology? According to traditional Chinese medicine, there are specific areas of and around the penis and vagina that correspond with the five primary organ systems: the heart, lungs, spleen-pancreas, kidneys, and liver. Each system relates to certain bodily functions and ranges of emotions and affects the other organ systems in an integrated dynamic whole. Healthy balance of these systems is considered critical to the health of your mind, body, and emotions. The theory holds that stimulating certain parts of the genitals energizes the chi in the corresponding organ systems. However, when one area is stimulated more frequently than the others, the corresponding organ can become over-stimulated and eventually weakened. Chinese Medicine & The Psoas.

“In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy.” – Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Biochemist and Nobel Prize Winner.

Science Finally Proves Meridians Exist

For centuries the ancient wisdom keepers and healers in several traditions had a keen understanding of the energetic body. The healing traditions from China, India, Japan and Tibet, as well as other countries all spoke of energy channels, meridians or nadis along which the vital energy flowed. Life was considered to be a bio-electrical and vibrational energy phenomenon and so health revolved around balancing energy through various means.
