The energy of the liver is responsible for the smooth flow qi in the body. It regulates how the energy moves. Liver imbalances show up as excesses such as unrestrained liver yang and fire; as liver deficiencies (of yin and blood) and as liver stagnation, or stuckness.
The five-element correspondence of springtime to the liver makes spring a particularly powerful time, traditionally, to address psycho-spiritual issues associated with the Hun.
The spirits associated with all the energy systems that make us up come into play, and must be balanced, for the creative process to take place by which manifestation enters our shared reality. The Hun is a pivotal energy in this process.
The Hun spirit helps to bring our inner dreams into awareness. It animates our creativity and aspirations, provides clarity of vision and direction, and opens a portal to possibilities. The Hun empowers us to see our path and purpose and provides support to stay clear in our direction and have the courage to hold steady to integrity and incorruptibility. It helps us to see the “big picture” and create strategies for the unfolding of our destiny.
It is said that the Hun imagination interfaces with Shen consciousness, (the energy of pure potentiality), to create manifestation, for both are yang in nature. This provides the initial step in creating our own reality. The liver energy must flow smoothly on all levels to allow our connection with the source of undifferentiated oneness, the energy of potentiality, the Tao.
Many of the things that lead to stagnation of liver energy and hinder the ability to allow merging of our perception with that of our higher spiritual selves are lifestyle issues. Physical influences include too much coffee, alcohol, and other drugs. Psychological influences include stress, unexpressed emotions, and rigidity in the way we think or in our beliefs. Constrained energy, stuck energy, inhibits our ability to allow the Tao to flow smoothly through us.
We can access the energy of springtime and expansion and allow the Hun spirit to potentiate moving forward in life and release resistance that holds us back.
In these challenging times of polarity and limited perspective accessing the flow and flexibility of the Hun spirit can be of great value.
These treatment suggestions focus on opening the flow of the liver to allow full expression of the Hun.
Yang Wei Mai – helps us to hear our inner guidance and see our way forward accessing our transformational path – New Moon 5th to open the way, Full Moon 6th to bring full expression and illumination of our destiny. The Zodiac 3rd can also be used to break up resistance to new ways of being and to disperse patterns that no longer serve us. Ohm/Jupiter 4th can be employed to expand beyond limitations. Hygiea/Jupiter promotes expansion into other dimensions of awareness.
Dai Mai – helps us to release constraints to moving forward- Zodiac 3rd to break through frustration of not advancing. New Moon 5th to release old emotional habits. Ohm/Uranus 5th to break up barriers and to allow more decisive movement.
Open the Hun spirit point UB 47 (Hun Gate-3 Cun lateral to the spinous process of T9) with the New Moon 5th and/or open and expand the expression of the Hun with the Jupiter/New Moon combination.
LIV 3 (Great Surge), LIV 14 (Cycle Gate), UB 18 (Liver Shu) all address the flow and balance of liver energy and enhance the process of allowing. Use the New Moon 5th to open, the Ohm Jupiter 4th to expand. Also, the Jupiter/Neptune combination can be used with these points to open and encourage smooth flow of the liver energy.
GB 40 (Hill Ruins) helps to see things from a higher perspective with increased clarity. New Moon/Jupiter can open to an expanded view.
The 6th chakra point, Yin Tang, can be treated with the New Moon/Jupiter combination to open and expand vision and allow insight for transformation along with the above liver related points.
