Stuck Qi = ‘Stress’
In wellness, everything just flows.
We can start to block ourselves by ignoring how we feel and what we are doing (never moving our body/not doing what makes our heart sing).
This condition (feeling ‘put upon’, being aggravated, irritated, ‘pissed off’) is often called being ‘stressed’.
Starting with bloated feelings, it begins by invading the digestive arena, further complicating the picture and often bringing with it excessive heat.
When we do not feel heard, valued or get thwarted in something, we can bottle up what we stop feeling and then emotions brew and tempers fray and energy gets stuck, the energy has to go somewhere – and it does.
One option is across, attacking the gut (‘upset tummy’, IBS, ulcers, heartburn, Crohn’s disease, allergies, general gut malaise).
This emotional tension could boil over into tension felt in the body structure, and often the chiropractor, physio or massage therapist just never seems to ‘fix’ it – as you keep making more – and the dentist speaks of devices for stopping tooth grinding . . or you accept the line of the ‘family’ history of migraines, bad temperedness as being normal.
Often people call this being ‘hormonal’.
These are many of the ways Stuck Liver Qi makes its presence felt.
Expressing yourself also is a great way to unlock this.
Not expressing yourself leads to the Liver Qi being depressed – and your life force is then also depressed.
Especially important as all women bleed.
Especially important if you want to stay happy, content and well.
