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.
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 "jing" in Chinese Traditional Medicine, TCM) is stored and delivered by 3 major systems of human physiology - the neural system of the heart, the endocrine (hormonal) system with an emphasis on the adrenals, and the renal system (kidneys). (This definition is my own take on this matter, not strictly TCM.)
Vital energy is more subtle, and more influential on overall health, than the chi. 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.
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 have the greatest influence on this "relationship" with Life. They are fundamentally responsible for determining the nature and distribution of Life energy through the neural system of the heart. Note that all three of these, while influenced by social conditions and education, are determined solely by each individual's freewill choice.
Your Definition of Self
The most central perception impacting 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.
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.
The Endocrine System (Hormone Producers)
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.
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.
In my opinion, the kidneys and adrenals together are the second most significant area impacting human health.
The Spiritual-Physical Relationship
The first is clearly 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). 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 kidney-adrenal team), the condition of your kidneys and adrenals impact every area of biological significance.
The flow of Life energy goes like this:
1) Earthing (get your body in contact with the earth).2) Sun gazing (best time is on cloudy days).
Critical Aspects Required to Sustain Organ Efficiency
Q: After correcting a spleen imbalance with herbs, will a good diet and lifestyle without the herbs continue to maintain my health?
Why you have reason to question the health claims of the most popular oil on the planet.
