What’s Blocking Your Well-Being?

Thrive in Therapy Counseling Services, Inc. - Rinda Rosenberg, LMHCFrom the Outside Looking In

You’ve got this vague, nagging sense of emptiness that you’re determined to get to the bottom of. You’ve read self-help books, did exercises, learned a lot – yet, you still feel on the outside looking in. There is a disconnect – as if you are missing something that’s hard to name. Part of you thinks if you keep trying hard enough you’ll find what it is. Another part is giving up hope, thinking you’ll never find it. If this describes you, you’re not missing anything; you’re just moving on from learning and are ready to begin doing what it takes to find what you are seeking.  What feels missing is readily available; it was neglected early on and got buried through no fault of your own by the ways you got your needs met.   These ways feel “right,” they are all you’ve known, but they now get in your way. What you’ve got to do is get familiar with these strategies and then set them aside and you will access what’s missing right away.

Yang Fire Monkey Year by White Crane Healing Arts

by Miki on February 6, 2016

The Chinese new year which begins on the second new moon after the winter solstice will be on Monday, February 8th at 9: am. The rising moon will usher in the year of the Yang Fire Monkey and If I had to describe the year in one word it would be dynamic. I’ll explain why, but first, a brief description of how the Chinese astrological system works for those not acquainted with it.

Every year is either Yin or Yang. This cycle repeats itself continuously each hour, day, week, month and year. Last year was yin, therefore, this year is yang and next year will be yin, etc. Another cycle, known as the 5 elements, which is a system of corresponding energies, is used in Chinese astrology in two different cycles, known as the Earthly Branches and the Heavenly Stems. A branch and stem is ascribed to each year and if you understand their symbolic meaning, you can gain insight about yearly expectations and how to interpret what that year’s potential influence will be.
Earthly branches rotate in a 12 year cycle. One of the twelve animals (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, boar) is used to describe each year in the cycle and this animal represents a certain quality of energy. Each animal is either Yin or Yang and has a fixed element. For example, every monkey is yang and has a fixed element of metal. So all monkeys, regardless of what year they’re born in will have some attributes of metal (negative & positive) such as being composed or scattered, devoted, candid, trustworthy, combative, withdrawn, etc.
Each year is also influenced by the Heavenly stems cycle. This is a cycle of the five elements in their yin and yang stages which creates a cycle of ten years. This cycle rotates like this: yang earth – yin earth, yang metal – yin metal, yang water- yin water, yang wood – yin wood, yang fire – yin fire and then it starts again.

Broward Acupuncture by White Crane Healing Arts

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that is used to alleviate pain and/or to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions by using small needles to stimulate points on the human body. Originating in ancient China, acupuncture is now widely practiced in the West.

Acupuncture is over 5000 years old and is a time tested healing modality originating from the far East.  Each individual will experience acupuncture on a personal level and what one feels depends on their own state of being and level of sensitivity.  It’s common to feel a sensation of warmth, tingling or traveling Qi (energy) when the needles are inserted; and many experience a profound sense of relaxation and well being or possibly increased energy.  Acupuncture treats the whole being which includes body, mind, emotions and spirit.

Acupuncture points are located in the small depressions or hollows in the skin called gates.  Thru these gates, one can access the internal streams and rivers of energy that transport Qi and blood.  Qi and blood give sustenance to the interaction and cohesion of mind, body and spirit.  Fundamentally, illness manifests when Qi, Blood and Fluids are either blocked, depleted or imbalanced, which diminishes its healthy coherence to the point of dysfunction or eventually illness. Acupuncture can reorganize this dynamic by opening, closing or harmonizing the flows within the rivers and streams (channels).

Some examples would be, helping individuals to manifest their potential in the real world; helping someone that is experiencing an emotional situation (good or bad), to feel or express it  and one more example would be helping someone that is constantly discharging energy to store energy in order to have a sense of cohesion.  Our inner world of feelings and emotions are constantly challenged in an increasingly complicated world which prevents our neurological system from processing the incoming data that seems to be coming at us at an increasingly faster pace.

All hygienic precautions are observed and only sterilized disposable needles are used.

The Qi of Turkey and Apple Pie

White Crane Healing Art of Broward providing Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Herbal Therapy, Qigong Classes, Self Cultivation Practices & Nutritional Guidanceby Miki – Whitecrane Healing Arts

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching and like many of you, I’ll be spending the holiday with family. My daughter and I will share memories and catch up with recent events, while cooking our mostly traditional Thanksgiving dinner. In Taoist and Chinese understanding, food like everything in the universe has “Qi” or life force. When we eat, food shares its life force with us. This life force influences us in different ways, for example, the Qi of whole wheat is as follows: wheat has a cooling thermal nature, it’s sweet, builds yin (fluids) and benefits the heart and calms the spirit. This holistic system includes the understanding that food, with its nutritional components and mystical qualities is a powerful healing force.

I thought it would be fun to analyse, Chinese style, the Qi and energetic influence of some of the ingredients in a typical Thanksgiving dinner.

  • Turkey – warming (though less so than chicken), building, tonifys qi and builds blood
  • Cranberries – slightly warming, sour flavor, astringent, benefits the liver & kidneys, cleanses the blood of toxins, controls urinary functions, astringes essence
  • Sweet Potatoes or Yams – cooling thermal nature, sweet flavor, strengthens the spleen and stomach, clears heat, tonifys qi.
  • White Potatoes – neutral, sweet, tonifys spleen-pancreas qi, harmonizes the stomach, lubricates the intestines, mildly diuretic, strengthens kidney yin
  • Green Beans – slightly sweet & bland, warming, descends chi, benefits the lungs, kidneys & Qi
  • Leafy Greens (kale) – slightly bitter, warming, strengthens stomach, descends Qi
  • Onions, garlic, green Onions & other pungent vegetables (garlic, green onions, leeks etc.) – warming, immunity building, dries dampness, benefits the lungs
  • Winter squashes, pumpkin, carrots – warming thermal nature, sweet flavor, influences the spleen-pancreas, stomach, reduces inflammation
  • Apples – cooling, sweet & sour, produces fluids in the body, moistens dryness and reduces heat, especially in the lungs – cooling thermal nature, sweet flavor, benefits the stomach and immune system

Just as food shares its life force with us, we share our life force (Qi) with food. This may sound silly to some, but if you consider that everything in the universe is Qi and that Qi (energy) borders are not as well defined as physical boundaries, then it follows that, if the person(s) preparing the food is not feeling well, or has some level of negative emotion, that energy will be absorbed by the food. It makes sense then, that a meal prepared lovingly is far more nourishing for both body and spirit.

Foods can also be influenced by cooking, freezing or adding other ingredients. For example, a cooling food, like apples, will become neutral when baked and if you also add warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg or cloves etc, like in apple pie, it can change the apple’s influence to warming. We should also be mindful of how food is grown or raised. Was your turkey naturally raised, naturally fed and allowed to run free (this makes for a happy turkey)? Are your vegetables locally grown, fresh, frozen, organic? This new way of understanding food is truly ancient, natural and really quite simple when you get the hang of it. All the senses are engaged when you evolve your relationship to food and with experience and practice you will also develop an intuitive skill for “knowing” what foods resonate best with your body type and climate. Talk about soul food!

Our wish for you is that Thanksgiving Day and everyday is full of positive Qi, nourishing sustenance and peaceful moments to appreciate life.

In Gratitude,
Frank & Miki

Spring Equinox & Quiet Sitting Class at White Crane

White Crane Healing Arts - Holistic Family Healthcare - Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Herbal Therapy, Qigong Classes, Self Cultivation Practices & NutritionHello Friends and Students,

The next Taoist Quiet Sitting Class is on Tuesday, March 24th from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm. We will continue to explore the energies of sinking (descending) and how to move these energies with great discernment into the dissolving process. Most of us find that when we start to observe, our minds are jumbled up into a mixture of thoughts, emotions and sensations; but we lack the skill to calm and integrate these experiences. Without clear discernment and the ability to feel the quality of energy that is occupying your mind at any given moment, it becomes increasingly difficult to quiet your being and deepen the experience of true inner space.

We will also begin a conversation about fear. The energy of fear creates one of the most fundamental blockages that can be encountered. Discussion will focus on the nature of fear and how it limits our growth at every level.

Beginners Welcome!

Location: White Crane Healing Arts Center, 7071 W. Commercial Blvd. 2C, Tamarac, FL 33319

Date & Time: Tuesday, March 24th  7:00 – 8:30 PM

Cost: $10.00

PS – Friday, March 20th is the spring equinox. The new moon will prevail and in that will be the energy of new beginnings. Day and Night will be equal; and therefore yin and yang will also be equal. The sun will rise directly in the east and set directly in the west. In Taoist cosmology, the equinox is considered a high energy day.

If desired, you can acknowledge this energy with incense, candles and/or invocations. The idea is to raise your consciousness and purify your energy; especially on the subtle spiritual plane. Other suggestions include meditation, prayer, a reading of something that inspires you deeply, spending time in nature watching a sunrise or sunset, visiting a beach, forest or mountain. Whatever you choose, it should be done with clear intent – you get the idea!

Good Journey,

Frank

Quiet Sitting Meditation – White Crane Healing Arts

White Crane Healing Arts - Holistic Family Healthcare - Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Herbal Therapy, Qigong Classes, Self Cultivation Practices & NutritionFriends & Students,

We had a great turnout for the last quiet sitting class. For those of you interested in going deeper into the nei gong practices, quiet sitting meditation is a necessary component. There are three prerequisites that are essential to developing skills. They are becoming present, Taoist Longevity breathing, and the dissolving process. In my experience I’ve noticed that sitting quietly for a length of time is the most difficult skill to develop for most students.

As I’ve mentioned repeatedly, our culture emphasizes activity, which activates the thinking process. Extreme activity creates rumination or over thinking, which, over time creates an imbalance in the digestive organs. Our ability to nourish ourselves then becomes greatly compromised. These practices are about observing the relationship between our inner world with the outer world; and discovering how to reconcile the imbalances we see to create greater harmony.

Most of us, since birth, have been conditioned to think and view things in a linear fashion; but when we delve into our inner worlds, which requires a shift to how our minds function, we discover a subtle infinite universe. If we look at a metaphor of waves above the ocean, we see the waves as the obvious observable experiences of life, but these waves are generated by currents of energy below the surface, and these currents are influenced by even more subtle and deeper currents.

This is why in our practices we try to feel below and behind the obvious. The descending flow of energy that permeates our world (earth) is the primary energy we want to recognize and stabilize within, especially in the beginning. Sinking energy deeply into the body helps to heal by cleansing and purifying what our body is unable to process; and most importantly, it repairs the nervous system.

Dropping the energy of the brain into the lower dan tien (belly area) initializes a sense of the inner currents that are pushing various body functions into stress mode. Within this process of sinking the various energies, we will try to make clear distinctions inside for the purpose of releasing, integrating and recognizing what truly nourishes us.

Good Journey,
Frank
