Internal Clocks: the Circadian Clock, Your Meridian System & the "Chinese Clock"
Your circadian clock controls as many as 15% of the cells in your body. Not all parts of your body function in the same “time zone,” nor do they age at the same speed. On a systems level, Jet Lag is a classic example of how completely your internal clock can be thrown out of sync. Even the small adjustment of Standard to Daylight savings time can confuse your internal clock, affecting your sleep cycle. BodyTalks Cortices brain-balancing technique is thought to help.
Disruptions in Circadiam Rhythms also impact immune function. Memory. Depression. Metabolism and obesity. And, aging. Aging of course is completely about time and the consciousness of mortality. In the Shamanic training I did, the journey to death was one of our first because we each need to come to peace with death as a presence in our lives. Does life end when your time in this incarnation ends? We don’t each answer questions like that in the same way and that also impacts health and healing.
BodyMind Spirit Healthcare can and does address each of these if and when muscle checking indicates they are necessary to your session. Sometimes what surfaces as a priority needs to be given a nudge by requesting a particular session focus and then muscle checking to confirm if it will be effective to directly target one of these at this time or if something else needs to be addressed first.
Your meridian system has it’s own 24 hour rhythm and it too gets out of sync. I’ve been taught to think of that as your “Chinese Clock” and it often comes up as priority in a formula to reset it. Your meridian system is ultra-attuned to the unfolding of the seasons so seasonal tune-ups are important. Though you may not think the unfolding of the seasons, the yin and yang cycle of the moon, impact you, your body has a different way of thinking, of being. Millenia of evolution have hard wired us in ways that are confused and undermined by our modern lifestyles.
Weaving this all is indeed, integrative care.
