Most women I come across trying to conceive have some level of adrenal burnout or Yang Qi deficiency. Not only does yang qi deplete naturally as we age, we over spend it when we burn the candle at both ends- you know overwork & overplay. I'm guilty for sure. When I first entered graduate school I could barely find my Kidney Yang pulse. It was sooooo depleted from climbing the corporate ladder, staying up way too late, running marathons, and ruminating way too long on making a major life transition. All the things I thought were good for me and important were draining my very life force. It was quite empowering to learn that I had control of how I spent this energy and that were ways to try and replenish what I already squandered.
Notice the Taoist symbol for Yin and Yang. The dot of black within white and vice versa denotes that fact that you can’t have one without the other. They are mutually encompassing AND engendering.
The line in the middle signifies the dance of balance that is always happening between the two. It’s really never 50/50 because all living things are constantly in flux- the idea that change is always certain.
Remember- you have a body, you have a mind. You are NOT your body. You are NOT your mind. You are the gentle observer that dances between them cataloging everything. THIS is your qi and your consciousness all in one and energy precedes matter always and forever.
