We continue talking about the heart.
This time about its meaning in Chinese medicine.
According to this ancient tradition, the heart is considered the emperor of the body, and its importance goes beyon being just a physical organ.
In Chinese medicine, the heart is recognized as the residence of the Spirit, known as “Shen.”
Shen resides in the blood and Yin, creating a deep connection between the heart and spiritual vitality.
It is in this organ where our deepest emotions and our consciousness reside. In addition to its emotional and spiritual function, the heart also plays a vital role in physical health.
The heart is said to warm the body and give it vitality.
It is responsible for distributing blood and nutrients throughout our body, ensuring its correct functioning.
In Chinese medicine, a healthy heart is considered to be one that allows us to experience balanced emotions, enjoy good quality sleep, and maintain a clear and calm mind.
It is an organ that demands attention and care to maintain our general well-being.
Therefore, it is essential to take care of our heart in all aspects of our life.
We can cultivate emotional harmony through meditation, the practice of Tai Chi or Qi Gong, and also by paying attention to our diet and lifestyle.
Let us remember that the heart in Chinese medicine is much more than a physical organ. It is the ruler of our emotions and the guardian of our vitality.
Take care and cultivate harmony within us!
