Do you have patients who seem to be grieving things that haven’t happened yet. — and that, for that matter, may not happen at all? Perhaps they tell you how sad they are – maybe that’s even their chief complaint – and when you ask why, they don’t have anything that has happened that is sad or awful, but they are anticipating events that will make them feel sad. I call it “pre-grief” or “pre-grieving”. I suppose it’s similar to being a pessimist and saying that “if I prepare myself for the worst, when it happens I will be prepared and if it doesn’t I will be happy”.
Unfortunately, in your body, it doesn’t work that way. In pulse diagnosis, this can show up in a variety of ways:
– a deeply empty Sp/St/Earth sector which, depending upon how deeply you feel the emptiness, may be a very old pattern of despair and lack of nurturing that is how the person exists now.
– that same sector, Sp/St/Earth, going back and forth between the kidneys and the Lu/LI. In other words, the Earth doesn’t know how to handle that type of worry so it won’t let it into the Lungs and can shoot it back to the kidneys (like the diagram here). And probably the person’s digestion isn’t that great.
– the lungs/LI can feel stagnated, short, or even blocked because they won’t accept that much perverse energy.
Remember, all of the sectors in the pulses are connected and supporting each other when we are in good physical, emotional, and energetic health. When a sector is too weak or blocked, the rest of the system will suffer. It’s why balancing the pulses and getting them all connected and flowing is so important in our practices.
So what to do? Remove the blocks using (perhaps) the Luo points which should also help that back and forth movement. Or, focus on getting the lungs cleared using Lung 1 or 2 with Ren 14 or 15 perhaps. Pc 3 with Ht 5 and 7 is a nice choice. There are SO many choices when you can put the needles in, recheck the pulses to see what the results are, and continue to choose points that will lead to balance.
