CC - 21 Ways to Build Vital Energy
The Session Overview below is provided as a courtesy to those who prefer to read than listen, yet on each call additional insights are given which round out the subject.The outline below has been updated and may vary from the audio.
Your "vital energy" is directly related to your overall constitutional strength. Your basic constitutional strength affects every aspect of your health, including immune response, mood, hormone balance, muscle strength, endurance, back & bone health, allergic response, heart & lung health, etc.
Your vital energy (also referred to as "kidney jing essence" in Chinese Traditional Medicine, TCM) is stored or delivered by 4 major systems of human physiology (this definition is my own take on this matter, not strictly TCM):
the neural system of the heart
the splenic system (because the spleen drives energy production)
the endocrine (hormonal) system with an emphasis on the adrenals
the renal system (kidneys) where your jing essence is stored
Vital energy, or jing essence, is more subtle, and more influential on overall health than the qi. Vital energy is essential to life itself.
To the degree that vital energy leaves the body, the body slowly dies. To the degree that vital energy increases in the body, the body thrives.
1) The Energetic & Neural System of the Heart
The neural system of the heart is the physical link to the soul. Its function is to distribute Life Energy from the Universal to all areas of your human experience on earth.
The physical body is only one of the many aspects of your nature that receives Life Energy from the neural system of the heart. The purpose of the physical body is to reflect in physical matter the nature of your chosen relationship with "Life" (in the grandest sense of the word).
Perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs form the basis of your "relationship" with Life. These are your self-definitions.
They each impact the nature and distribution of Life energy through the neural system of the heart.
Note that all three of these, perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs, while influenced by social conditions, familial ties, and education, are decided upon, and modified, by each individual's freewill choice.
1a) Your Definition of Self
The most central impact on an individual's life and health is their own definition of self in relationship to all else – who and what they perceive themselves to be, what is perceived to be possible, etc.
A sense of well-being, a sense of freedom, or a sense of stress is all directly attributed to one's own choice of self-definition. One person looks at a seeming obstacle and sees blockage, another looks at the same obstacle and sees opportunity.
How many stories have you heard of people who started with extreme limitations, illness, or poverty only to overcome these obstacles and now teach hundreds or thousands how to do the same?
The obvious point here is to choose wisely what you believe to be true, for the rest of your life will conform to reflect this belief back to you. Our thoughts, words, and actions proceed from the heart, whether broken or whole.
The healing of your energetic heart is accomplished through choosing new definitions of self to replace the former perceptions. (Emotion-Packed Imagery).
The sky's the limit. Choose wisely, for the other three major contributors to your vital energy will be affected accordingly.
2) The Splenic Generator
Second only to the energetic heart, the spleen contributes the most to the formation of physical energy.
The spleen is involved in the generation of energy at the ATP level (your energy molecule).
The spleen also influences:
motor functions and muscle tone/strength
digestion/transformation of food, fats, and fluids into energy
nutrient assimilation at the cellular level (thus more efficient ATP)
recycling, building, and preservation of blood
iron storage for hemoglobin and to counter anemia
reduction of mucous congestion in sinuses, ears, throat, and throughout the body
raising of the qi, therefore strengthening of the posture
maintenance of organ placement in the body (prevents prolapses)
physical warmth and blood flow to the extremities
Hormone production from each of the primary endocrine glands (pineal, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, thymus, adrenals, and reproductive glands) and other hormone manufacturers (fat cells, liver, pancreas, etc.) perform the many regulatory functions necessary to keep your body at optimum health.
A decrease or excess in hormone production will quickly erode a state of internal balance, felt mainly as a loss of well-being. The more severe the loss of hormone balance, the greater the loss of well-being. The most abundant hormone producing glands within the entire endocrine system are the adrenal glands, producing well over 50 regulatory hormones.
4) The Kidney-Adrenal Team
In the body, the adrenals sit on top of your kidneys (described medically as the "suprarenals"). They function as a dynamic team, and are extremely intertwined in their functions.
The kidney areas, in addition to their normal blood purification functions, store the vital energy for the body. The adrenal glands, influenced by this vital energy, provide its physical counterbalance by producing a large array of hormones that support the vital functions of the body.
The kidneys and adrenals play significant roles in practically every area of human health from hormone levels, to immune response, to physical energy, to mental focus & memory, to life stress response, to toxic element response, to a host of physical conditions.
The Spiritual-Physical Relationship
The condition of the energetic and neural network associated to your heart (reflecting the degree of unconditional love present in your perceptions of life and definition of self) is a central factor in the quantity of vital energy built up or retained over decades of living.
While the condition of your energetic heart affects everything related to your soul path (and subsequently expressed through the neural system of the heart, then passed on to the splenic, kidney-adrenal, and hormonal systems), the condition of your spleen, kidneys, and adrenals impact every area of biological significance.
The flow of Life energy goes like this:
1. freewill choice -
2. the energetic heart -
3. the neural system of the heart -
4. the splenic generator -
5. the endocrine system at large -
6. including the kidney-adrenal team -
7. all of which impact overall physical health.Kidney Jing
The vital force referred to as 'jing essence" is stored by the kidneys. Jing is the inner foundation of your physical vitality. Jing is the feminine subtle energy behind the qi.
Qi is the yang aspect of physical energy. The jing is concentrated qi and provides the basis of your overall constitutional strength.
As the jing becomes depleted, health compromises increase. As the jing is built up through proper diet, herbs, exercise, positive thoughts, meditation, etc. overall health increases.
Some of the things that deplete kidney jing essence include:
life & job stresses,
dietary compromises: sugar, colas, coffee, processed foods, fried foods, GMO foods, chemicals, medications, etc.
an over acid condition in the body (largely caused by the above)
pathogen overgrowth (caused initially by the use of antibiotics, vaccines, chemical laden foods, herbicides, pesticides, chlorinated/fluoridated water, mercury teeth fillings, etc.)
medical treatments and diagnostic measures: radiation, X-rays, antibiotics, pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines (made mostly of petrochemicals and heavy metals)
recreational drugs: tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, ayahuasca, psychedelics, etc. (as evidenced by the high followed by the low, with subsequent addictive consequences)
swings between high & low energy
high & low blood sugar
sugar cravings, munchies, cravings for salt
elation & depression
asthma and lung conditions
heart palpitations & other irregularities
insomnia & difficulty getting up in the morning
kidney weakness causing frequent or insufficient urination (and in extreme cases, almost none)
low level immune response
followed by a host of symptoms that literally look like a medical encyclopedia
The adrenals are the most prolific hormone producer of the entire endocrine system. The adrenals manufacture over 50 hormones. These hormones play a role in regulating a significant number of life-critical functions: heart rate, blood pressure, blood sugar, mood, mental clarity, memory, sleep, physical energy, lung health and oxygen exchange, estrogen and testosterone levels, allergic response, immune response, fat metabolism, and many others.
If the adrenals are unable to perform these functions effectively, a significant link in human physiology becomes absent. It then becomes obvious just how easily health imbalances can show up.
Here are 21 Ways to Build Vital Energy
1) Earthing (get your body in contact with the earth)2) Sunlight (face the sun with eyes closed when necessary).
Lighting (eliminate fluorescent and halogen lights, including the squirrelly "Eco Friendly" bulbs)
Air quality (get as close to forest air as possible, reduce or eliminate carpets in the house, do what is practical and possible to filter or improve the air you breathe)
Water quality, (use Sacred Clay to remove chemicals from bath & drinking water, get the best spring water possible)
EMF's (reduce wireless technology, cell phones, wireless computers, Smart Meters, Blu Tooth, etc.)
Natural fabric & clothing (cotton, wool, linen, etc. for bedding and clothing)
Fragrances, cosmetics, shampoos, soaps, laundry/dryer, etc. (use only "Unscented" products in all areas. Most "natural" scents are just chemical scent imitations and serve as hormone disruptors). A growing number of people are becoming sensitive to even the essential oil fragrances.
15) Get recharged. Schedule quiet time alone every day, every week.
16) Give yourself brief periods of horizontal time with eyes closed during the day (especially helpful when lying on the ground in the sun, as in earthing).
17) Exercise (preferably in nature rather than a gym).
18) Allow yourself to be inspired from deep within. Be an inspiration to others.
19) Grow a garden. Let Nature heal you.
20) Bless every area of your life every day (The Blessing Transformation).
