Treat yourself with some hand reflexology!Read More
Spring is here and we acupuncturists think "Wood Element". During this season we focus on supporting the Liver and Gallbladder systems.
I am having an interesting week. I am at a professional conference with over 2100 members. There was a big merger between several companies and this is the first time everyone has been together at one event.
I decided to make this event a social experiment for me. I am learning a method of Reflexology that helps someone let go of past traumas in order to achieve peace and balance in their current everyday life. The theory states, partially and to paraphrase, that if we all are happier within ourselves, letting go of the past, our interactions with others will improve, and the state of the world, as well as ourselves, will be in better balance and peace.
I know many of the members at this conference, and I watched the interactions between them. Some members are happy about the merger, and I know these people to be happy in their everyday lives as well. There are many who do not feel comfortable with these changes; "change is so hard" was a comment I heard more than once. I also know that some of these members are having difficulties with business or family. These people became very defensive when the merger was discussed, and I could feel them, and almost "see" them shrink into themselves whenever they were part of the conversation. So they either lashed out, or became very quiet. This flow of conversation would change with each sentence one or the other would say.
This is a natural flow of energy, and not always a healthy one. We all need to strive to have better balance in our lives so we can function better with others, make our point known without shame or discomfort, and be a willing participant in all the twists and turns life has to offer.
It is well known that Reflexology helps put the body back into a natural balance. I wish I could have lined all these people up and given them a nice Reflexology session. I bet the energy in the room would have been much different!
If ever you feel like you want to express yourself more effectively, please take a few minutes to give yourself a nice Hand Reflexology session, even for just a few minutes, to relax and get into better balance.
