Within and around your body, there are subtle energetic systems that make up your energy field. In Chinese medicine, they are called meridians (or "energy rivers"). Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi Gong, Tai Qi, and Martial Arts use these subtle energy systems in the body to strengthen the immune system by strengthening overall health. Your body is a powerful beast.
When these energy systems are weakened or blocked in the body over a period of time, it creates physical and systemic weaknesses. These blocks and weaknesses can affect overall health, and thus the body’s overall ability to ward off external pathogens.
The body is equipped with the innate ability to ward off invading pathogens. Our bodies are designed this way. We have a biological immune system that attacks foreign bodies in the body to fight off pathogens. Within Chinese Medicine, there is an understanding that these pathogens can be fought off on the outermost levels of the body called the "Wei Qi," which is the energy in the back of the head, neck, and shoulders.
When your body is not able to do what’s it’s designed to do, which is to ward off pathogens both biologically and energetically, there are many factors at play. There are things you don’t have control over, like when the pandemic will be over and the state of the world. But there are those things you do have control over, and that is what you want to focus on. Like lifestyle, stress levels, exercise, rest, food, connection, and joy are all within your sphere of influence and contribute to your overall immune health.
Remember, this is a lifestyle, a consciousness, an intention. We won't be perfect. Perfect does not exist. But to incorporate more of and to really OWN that your body is your strength. Because if you don’t believe in your body and what is already within you, you place your belief and power in things external to you, thus becoming disempowered. A disempowered you creates a weakened energy field and energy systems.
Because after coronavirus, there’s probably going to be something else. In modern history, we have seen the comings and goings of plagues and diseases over thousands of years, and they continue. How do you ride through all these things you don’t have control over and still live your life?
Know that your body is your strength. And then support your body’s systems, as only YOU can, and be deeply present to your life because it’s happening right here, right now.
