When I want to pull a person “into” themselves, to ground them, connect them more fully with their own being, I work on the Stomach Meridian. When I want to help a person connect with their “mission” in life, I often treat the Kidney Meridian. One day last week, I was drawn to work on Stomach immediately followed by Kidney and was surprised by a connection that I found between these two meridians.
Assessing whether a person feels grounded (Stomach Meridian) and fully in their body and being, begins with checking the sense I have of whether they seem energetically connected into their feet. In an interesting connection, the Kidney Meridian’s first point, Kidney #1, and an important point at that, is found deep in the ball of the foot. This point is known as “Gushing Spring” (there are several variations of this name) and is regarded as the place in the body where we pull energy up from the Earth into our body.
How interesting that the energy reflecting being grounded in who we are is focused on the feet–as is the energy that is related to connecting to our life mission, which is also a reflection of who we are.
