Fall and Metal Element: Inspiration or Letting Go?


As fall takes up residence in our lives in the Northern Hemisphere with cooler weather and leaves falling from trees, it’s important to acknowledge this impact on our personal lives with these changes.

On the Chinese Five Element and Meridian Wheel, Metal Element is the Official for this time of year. In Chinese Medicine, each element and meridian has importance related to physical, emotional, mental and spirit levels. The Metal Element Official speaks both to inspiration and letting go.

Metal Element on the physical level deals with the Lungs and Large Intestines. The lungs, of course, connect you to the air you breathe and that which inspires you in your life. Each time you exhale, you release and let go. The Large Intestine allows you to let go of what doesn’t nourish your body. On the emotional and mental levels it also works with the energy of acknowledging your regrets openly and honestly so you can move on in life.  Of course, this can be something
that is needed at any time of year.

Inspiration: Lung Meridian

Lung Meridian is about inspiration. Trees are the lungs of the planet.

. Lung Meridian asks the question, “What inspires you?” What keeps you connected to your spiritual source?” “What do you value?” as well as “What keeps you from realizing you life and spirit purpose?”

Where there have been injuries to self-esteem, confusion or feeling cut-off from life due to grief, trauma, loss, or depression, Metal Element supports you in experiencing greater self-worth, respect, and a greater sense of value for your life’s experience.

Lung Meridian helps you realize that everything has an innate perfection in your journey through life for your expansion and conscious spiritual evolution. As an example in nature, you see the trees letting go of leaves as the temperatures change and the light diminishes. Yet, what you might not readily perceive is that underneath this seeming death process is the greater purpose of preparation for rebirth. The leaves are actually being pushed off by the new leaf buds forming for the spring!

Letting Go: Large Intestine Meridian

Letting go allows your body-mind system to heal grief, trauma and any residue of earlier experiences.

Large Intestine works with letting go of that which no longer serves your life. So how do you let go of issues that might have placed your emotions on a merry-go-round or stopped you from moving forward in your life?

The Reptilian Brain, the part of your brain whose purpose is to help you survive works by looking for events, features, and images that remind it of earlier events where you might have experienced stress. When you have not processed or moved through an experience to create calm or resolution in your body-mind system, it is important to focus on looking at these issues to create new possibilities. What we resist, persists.

The Parasympathetic and Sympathetic Nervous System will register stress responses that become imprints or triggers for future events, emotions or responses to situations. When your system is reminded of a an unresolved earlier situation, your unconscious responds to in the present as it did in the past with all the stress, emotion, and physical reaction of the unresolved issue.

The benefits of resolution, forgiveness and moving on include updating your response to situations, better communication between all the systems of your body, new insights, responses and more choices for your life experience in the present. This can happen through accessing the unconscious material that your nervous system reports through the muscle-checking system in Resonance Repatterning. Your nervous system is connected to every muscle, tissue, organ and gland. Your body is a map of your life’s experiences.

Working with consciousness science, breath, fragrance, movement, light, sound, and energetic balancing, a Resonance Repatterning® session allows you to let go of the non-coherent patterns to create new coherent pathways for resolution and inspiration. This makes experiencing life anew more than a possibility because your system no longer resonates with the impact or residue of the earlier experience. By letting go of the old, you make way for more inspiration and life energy for your positive intentions.You are making space for a new way of living your life!

  2. Five Element acupuncture as practiced in the West is a distillation of traditional concepts from Chinese medicine which emphasizes treating the whole person: body, mind and spirit. Many of the current practitioners of this healing art have been trained by J.R. Worsley, who has captured the essence of this remarkable system and brilliantly applied it to the dilemmas and challenges of modern life. This article reflects the training I had with Worsley and my experience of applying it over 25 years in a primary care medical practice. The Five Element acupuncture system, rooted in Taoism, is over 2000 years old yet in many ways is more applicable today than ever before. Five Element acupuncture brings a vision and understanding of how to assess and treat the roots of illness, whether on a body, mind or spirit level. In today’s culture, with its emphasis on striving for material wealth, as well as the overwhelming mental stimulation, there is little to nurture the spirit. This has led to the clinical finding that many individuals today have the origin of their health problems on the spirit level. The Tao Te Ching discusses protecting the spirit through the state of desirelessness (wu wei). (1) The knowledge that addressing the spirit is critical is also found in the earliest writings in Chinese medicine, the Nei Ching Su Wen “the first method of acupuncture is to cure the spirit, the second was to give knowledge of how to restore the body. In order to make acupuncture effective one must first cure the spirit. (2) The gift of Five Element acupuncture is to make available the wisdom and understanding of these classical concepts of acupuncture for the challenges of life at the brink of the new millennium.
