How crazy was the weather this weekend? Im excited because it was such a great and rare example of a particular energetic relationship in Five Element Acupuncture theory; Fire within Water, Summer within Winter. The questions is how can this relationship help you?
In general the qualities that really struck me as i was out and about were those of joy, connectivity, and openness. Did you feel that at all?
There is an AMAZING point on the inside of our foot called "Blazing Valley" (Kidney 2) which really captures these qualities. Blazing Valley is the fire point within the winter channel (Kidney) and it brings warmth and connection to the cold. Heres a pic just incase you want to give it a little rub =)
This beautiful point brings warmth to cold/contraction and can be used to also clear excess heat in the body.
On the physical level Blazing Valley can help treat symptoms like, insomnia, night sweats, sore throat, dryness, asthma, itching, coldness, and can help a lot with fertility. (for both men and women!)
On the emotional level this point helps to ease fright, anxiety, and nervousness. It can help someone "frozen in fear" or unable to experience joy.
On the highest level Blazing Valley can help us if we are feeling isolated and disconnected. This point powerfully reminds us of the qualities of warmth, love, trust, closeness, comfort, security, and relaxation.
Pretty Amazing right!? And now that you know this point, try massaging it when you are feeling a little down in the dumps, disconnected, or need a little Summer in your Winter =)!
Thanks so much for reading! Have a fantastic moment!
