Pericardium

Join Mona for the Full moon on Saturday the 21 of May… The Full moon will be in the sign of Sagittarius ruling the Pericardium meridian… We will be working on tuning in to our real self to strengthen, protect and heal the heart center, relaxing to sounds of the gong and healing with the Tantric healing circle meditation…
Full Moon in Sagittarius is a time to benefit of fresh information and new ideas… When the other speaks let us try to listen and understand…
Moon visits Sagittarius to provoke strong positive feeling and optimism. Vitality escalates and good intentions take possession of human mind. If you believe in it, it could really happen…
Sagittarius Full Moon can make us feel more adventurous and optimistic in general. It is the sign of adventure, travel, freedom, discoveries, and higher learning. We may feel restless or reckless, but since Jupiter, the planet of fortune, rules Sagittarius there can be a sense of expansion and quiet joy that exists underneath any of the stressful feelings we encounter. Take a deep breath and walk somewhere, it is a good time for recreation, excursion. It is pleasant and generous time for learning, reading or digging into philosophy.
During this Full Moon we will be experiencing a tug of war between Gemini and Sagittarius themes. The Sun in Gemini will signify ego needs and the Moon in Sagittarius our emotional needs. Gemini rules the mind and how we think. It is associated with all types of communication, articulation and information, both obtaining it and sharing it. Sagittarius is the opposite sign, which means it is the opposite polarity of the same energy. They are both intellectual and love learning, with Gemini being more logical and concerned with details, Sagittarius asks us to take a broader perspective and to think about things philosophically, whether it is logical or not…
Sagittarius is the seeker of truth, and will go far and wide to obtain it. Sagittarius is about philosophy and higher learning and Gemini is about personal expression and communicating. Tune into the truth of your soul, what you know to be true in the deepest places of your being, and know that clarity will arise at some point if not right now…
Ruling the pericardium meridian: The Pericardium Meridian governs circulation and hormones, and protects and regulates the heart… Known as the ‘Heart’s Bodyguard’, the pericardium meridian is the heart’s protector…
The pericardium provides the heart with physical protection, its energy also protects the heart from damage and disruption by excessive emotional energies generated by the other organs, such as anger from the liver, fear from the kidneys, and grief from the lungs…
The pericardium along with the heart and blood vessels run the circulation system and direct the fire element. The quality of fire purifies and transforms. This energy goes towards the heavens, not bound by gravity. When the meridian is balanced we will be generous, warm, and loving. We will also be able to receive criticism and love from others…
The Pericardium Meridian is Paired with: Triple Warmer Meridian
Physical Imbalances: Disorders of the heart, chest, stomach and mind, Hip problems, Cold hands and feet, Rounded shoulders to protect the Heart…
Emotional Imbalances: Difficulty feeling and expressing emotions, depression, aversions, and phobias…
When Balanced: generosity, warmth, Joy, happiness and healthy relationships…
Things to eat: Oatmeal (contains the element silica), A drink of boiled oatmeal. Boil 1 cup of oats in 3L water for 20 min. Strain. Drink 4 cups a day. Red & bitter foods: red beets, Brussels sprouts, rucola, rosemary, oregano, basil, paprika, turmeric, grapefruit, watermelon, quinoa, rye, buckwheat. Drink green or black tea, coffee and chocolate 🙂
Yoga for the pericardium: Alternate leg stretch. Butterfly pose with the palms under the ankles, then bend your head down as far as you can with long deep breathing. Any posture working on the hips. Archer pose is the best pose: Helps to develop a clear and powerful vision. 5‐10 minutes each side.
