I Spiritual Potential ShenRead More
By giving the Shen, the “divine spark” of consciousness, a home in the body, the heart unites heaven and earth in the human being. In Chinese medicine, the so-called “five Shen” represent different aspects of consciousness; the Shen of the heart is the purest form of consciousness. The best way to translate Shen is with “mind”. The presence of Shen is the prerequisite for health and a long life. The shine in our eyes is a reflection of the state of our Shen.
The concept of the Shen seems to correspond to the Buddhist idea of mind as pure consciousness in a detached state. According to the Buddhist teachings, enlightenment comes through knowledge and identification with this pure consciousness within ourselves.
However, the heart-Shen must remain anchored in reality and react to the demands of all physical conditions. Correct and appropriate behavior is the result when pure awareness consciousness is committed to the concerns of physical existence.
I Emotion Joy and HappinessRead More
In Nei Jing Su Wen it says: “Excessive Shen manifests itself in unceasing laughter, empty Shen in sadness. ” Sometimes a “lack of joy” indicates a problem in the Fire Element. In the event of a disturbance in the Fire, one will be infected by the cheerfulness of others, but then fall back into a lack of joy. But also, according to Chinese medicine, excessive joy/elation is considered to be a cause for illness.
I Relations between the Fire MeridiansRead More
Fire is the only element represented by two pairs of meridians: Heart/ Small Intestine and Pericardium/ Triple Heater Meridian. Here the Heart, in which the Shen is at home, takes over the central function of the Fire.
In medical texts from the East, various organs are compared with functionaries in a state. The Heart takes the place of the Emperor, who in ancient China corresponded to the Son of Heaven and embodied divine authority on earth. By harboring the Shen (spirit/mind) in the Heart, it gives the divine part of our being a physical home.
Through its central position in our Body-Mind-System, all other Meridians of the Fire Element are protectors of the Heart in very different ways or even its messengers, which help to increase its influence. The boundaries of the Meridians therefore overlap and to some extent all Fire Meridians are extensions of the Heart-Energy.
More about the functions and relationships is described in the explanations of the individual Meridians.
I Other Aspects of the Triple Heater-KiRead More
The Triple Heater not only connects and harmonizes the three “burners” (Chou), but also the levels of body – emotions – mind and soul.
I FunctionsRead More
Like its partner organ, the Pericardium Meridian, the Triple Heater is not assigned to an anatomical organ. It embodies rather a function, in his case even several functions. The Triple Heater controls the correct flow, balance and harmony of the entire energy between the upper, middle and lower parts of the body. All heat is also controlled by its function. In Nei Ching there are references to the three “burning spaces” in the body, which are also called the Three Chou. They should be related to the lungs and the waterways of the Bladder and Kidneys.
The Three Chou divide the trunk into three areas; each room (chou) corresponds to certain internal organs: heart and lungs – upper chou; stomach, spleen, gallbladder, liver and small intestine – middle Chou; large intestine, bladder and kidneys – lower Chou; these connections show the connection of the Triple Heater with respiration, digestion and excretion.
In Zen Shiatsu Theory, Masunaga uses the key terms “circulation and protection” for the energetic phase of Pericardium and Triple Heater. Masunaga combines the Triple Heater with peripheral blood circulation and lymph, with protection of the body surface against pathogenic influences, adaptation to our environment and emotional defence – the Triple Heater is responsible for the integrity of our boundaries. At the same time he has the energetic quality of opening and connecting that allows us to deal with social bonds.
At the level of our consciousness, the Triple Heater enables us to connect to our own inner processes. It also enables us to perceive ourselves in relation to our environment and to other living beings.
