☮️ Transformation is dynamic not static. It's not place you've landed on, or got to... it's always evolving and changing ~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Often times in the height of transformation, one may feel uneasy, anxious. ☯️ if you look at the symbol, you realize it tells a bit of a story, the curvy lines depict: ☯️ TRANSFORMATION ☯️ MOVEMENT~~ ☯️ CHANGE~~ there is constant flow. Like health and homeostasis, there is no static state. ~~~~~ Yin and Yang can also apply to the structure and function of our bodies. ~~~ ☯️ In Chinese Medicine, our organs are paired in a Yin and Yang relationship and function according to these principles. We have Yin organs and Yang organs and they all carry out specific functions. ~~ 💧 Knowing which organ systems are involved, based on the synthesis of signs and symptoms, helps you determine which acupuncture points to use and which essential oils 💧 to choose for the point ~~ If you're ready to learn WAY more about oils and Chinese medicine, do yourself and favor and check out my FREE webinar tomorrow Feb. 1st at 11:00 a.m. PST--> http://bit.ly/5ElementsWebinar or grab in Inst BIO - EASY PEASY #yinyang #5elements #qi
💜 I must say, I had the hardest time finding the perfect quote for BALANCE! ~~ 💜 WHY? ~~ Because, I think what most think balance is, is BullSh*t 😎 ~~ ☯️ Okay, hear me out please! Like this quote does state, balance is not something you attain... BALANCE is more a state of mind! ☯️ Balance is not butterflies 🦋 and unicorns, 🦄 happiness and joy, and it's not all sadness and grief, anger and irritability either. Balance is FLOW. ☯️ As the Yin Yang symbol represents, balance is not a static state. It's ebbing and flowing, highs and lows, it's creating calm in all states of mind... Balance is a state of mind in consciousness. ☯️ It's honoring your darkness and light. It's realizing there is ALWAYS both and we can't know one without the other. ~~~ ☯️ It's a knowing that when you relax and breathe into it, the pendulum will swing. ~~ ☯️ It's knowing you don't have to stand in the extremes ~~ ☯️ Oh I have a lot to say, and the Yin Yang Symbol expresses so much of it! And there are so many great essential oils that support this expression of balance. I hope you will join me on my FREE upcoming webinar this thursday on where we will dive deeper into this transformational energy. copy this link here-->http://bit.ly/5ElementsWebinar or go to INSTA BIO #yinyang #5elements #qi
☯️ Are you ready to really understand the principles of Yin & Yang? ~~ ✌️ No, this is not a throw-back to the hippie dippy days of the 60's & 70's ~~ 🔮 No you did not just enter the local new-age incense burning store ;) ~~ ☯️ Yin and Yang are a VERY Important diagnostic tool that practitioners of Chinese medicine use to assess one's overall constitution and state of balance! ~~ ☯️ The good news is, I am going to help you learn how to do the same thing for you, your family, patients and clients... ~~ ☯️ Yin and Yang represent the ability of our bodies to achieve and maintain balance and homeostasis in an ever-changing balancing and re-balancing world. ~~ ☯️ Like the 5-Elements, Yin and Yang is a significant diagnostic tool that has been used for millennia by Chinese Medicine practitioners to assess and evaluate a person’s physical, emotional, and mental state of balance. ~~ ☯️ Also, similar to the 5-Elements of Chinese Medicine, Yin and Yang each have a specific set of characteristics. ~~ ☯️ Generally speaking, anything that is moving, ascending, bright, progressing, hyperactive, including functional disease of the body, pertains to yang. ~~ ☯️ The characteristics of stillness, descending, darkness, degeneration, hypo-activity, including organic disease, pertain to yin.

🌳 Yesterday we explored that awesome WOOD ELEMENT archetype... ~~~ 🌳 That driven, motivated, planning, organized, clear goals with the ability to adapt to change like the branches easily blowing in the wind. ~~~ 🌳 Now... let's take a little looky loo at that slightly more rigid, twig snapping unbalanced wood element... oh dear... 😳 ~~~ 🌳 On the other side of that coin, Wood types, even when adapted, can have an EGDE. ~~~~ 🥊 They are ready to do combat to get to their goals and are not bashful about arguing with and confronting whoever stands in their way. ~~~ At time, they can be abrasives, controlling and pushy. ~~~ Some of the common conditions I see when someone’s Wood Element is out of balance is: 🌿 ♦ Irritability or anger 🌿 ♦ Depression 🌿 ♦ PMS and menstrual cramps 🌿 ♦ Headaches 🌿 ♦ Digestive issues 🌿 ♦ Eye and vision problems 🌿 ♦ Neck pain ~~~ Not too worry... I won't leave you hanging... my next post will offer solutions with Essential Oils and Acupuncture points.

🌳 Can we chat about the nature of a Wood Element Personality and Archetype for a moment please? ~~~~~~~~~~~ 🌳 Represented by the tree, you can see the Wood Element's nature of growth and structure, but just as important in the success of a tree’s vitality, is the flexibility. ~~~~~~~~~~~ 🌳 On a physical level our tendons and sinews are associated with the wood element, these connect our skeletal system and help create structure, but healthy sinews and tendons also have flexibility and keep us flexible in our body. ~~~~~~~~~~~ 🌳 This flexibility should not only be considered in our physical body, but also our mind. When Our wood nature gets challenged and our plans and focus get misdirected… we need healthy flexibility of the mind so that we do not get frustrated and stay stuck. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This frustration and "stuckness" are indications that your Wood Element is out of balance... We are not feeling flexible to "go with the flow" or the wind, if you will. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ☯️ So, what do we do? we FREE the FLOW so that we can feel more ease and open our minds to new possibilities. ☯️ This stuckness is what we call QI stagnation.. so we must move qi or free the flow of qi... in particular in the liver meridian... LIVER 3 acupuncture point is your best choice. ~~~~~~~~~~ 💧 Consider essential oils like Lavender, or doTERRA balance or blue tansy on Liver 3 LV3 ~~~~~~~~~~ PLEASE Grab my FREE ebook where I share Traditional Chinese Medicine and Essential oils tips for Today's Top 10 Health Concerns... http://diannedelreyes.com/free-ebook/ INSTA: link in BIO #woodelement

💜 It's TRUE! EVERYTHING is energy! This is not some airy fairy woo-woo concept... cuz that's not really my jam, but I do understand what our friend Einstein is saying here. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ☯️ Energy is even our attitude, emotions, mental state etc. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ☯️ When you feel "off" your physical energy is likely LOW AND your emotional energy is stagnant or blocked! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As you observe this from a holistic perspective, you will notice it will keep cascading and affecting all areas of your life, physical, mental, emotional. ☯️ Well here is something cool to help this stuck energy that we call QI (pronounced chee) in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) 💧 Depending on where the "stuck" or stagnant qi is, guess what? We have an oil for that! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 💧 Lavender oil is a great oil to gently move stuck qi, especially when working with your emotional state. depression is over referred to in TCM as Liver Qi Stagnation. Use Lavender on Liver 3 (LV 3) acupoint. (in a depression between the first and second toe) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 💜 GRAB my NEW EBOOK LINK in BIO of Insta. to learn more about how qi works with essential oils with the TOP 10 health concerns for today's modern world.
