There are five prime emotions that we will experience. They are anger, happiness, knotted thinking, anxiety or worry, and fear. Each emotion will affect our mind and our different internal organs and ultimately our health.
Anger will hurt our liver. Happiness will hurt our hearts. Knotted thinking will hurt our spleen. Anxiety will hurt our lungs. Fear will hurt our kidneys.
However, each organ is not independent. They are interrelated and the body is a whole. The suffering of one organ will affect other organs, and eventually the whole body will suffer. The heart, as the master organ, will also ultimately suffer.
Our heart is the master organ in our body. It is similar to a General in an Army, or the main controller of our body. Each type of emotion will eventually affect the function of our heart. Moreover, once our heart is injured, it will affect all other organs.
Thus it is paramount that we control our emotions so that they will not affect our body health. How? Let us see how we, as practitioners of life cultivation, will control our emotions for good health. We will talk about each emotion in turn. We have previously talked about Anger. We will continue to talk about Anger.
03 Consequences of Liver Stagnation
As we have previously discussed, Anger will result in Liver Stagnation. The vital energy flow associated with the Liver will become stagnant. That is, the energy flow will decrease. It will manifest in two states.
First, the vital energy flow will become stagnant in our body. In this state, we will become sad or unhappy. We will be easily depressed. This is a typical case of the vital energy flow associated with our liver becoming stagnant.
Second, there will come an exuberance of Liver Fire. When the vital energy flow associated with the Liver is stagnant for a long time, the liver will be inflamed or heated. In this state, we will have a quick temper, or bad temper. We become impatient, and find it hard to control our temper. It will show in our tongue. Our tongue will become red with a pink tip. We will have a bitter taste in our mouth. We may feel pain in our chest or the sides.
This is the first stage of development following the stagnation of vital energy flow associated with the liver. Stagnation leads to heat which leads to fire. The problem will become worse as time goes on. The following symptoms will appear.
01 Liver fire invading the lungs
Once this happens, we will show coughing, cough of blood, dryness in the chest cavity, dryness in the nasal cavity, shortness of breath, hot flashes of the body, bone steaming and other symptoms. Since the lungs are associated with the skin, we may also show skin symptoms.
02 Liver fire invading the heart
The overheated liver may lead to signs of heart palpitations and pulse knots, heart pulsation, or even cardiac crisis in the extreme case.
03 Liver fire invading the stomach and spleen
The spleen and stomach are bound to be restrained when the liver fire is too strong, resulting in stomach pain, dry mouth, and vomiting of sour water. For people who are stressed, reflux esophagitis is very common, which is caused by liver fire invading the stomach.
04 Liver fire invading the kidneys
Liver fire will show up as a deficiency of liver yin which will deplete kidney yin, leading to a deficiency of kidney essence, which will lead to symptoms such as backache, weak knees, dizziness, tinnitus and night sweats.
05 Liver fire invading other organs and tissues
People with insufficient liver yin and strong liver fire are prone to symptoms in the thyroid, breast, uterus, ovary, vulva, etc. These body parts are normally nourished by the vital energy flow associated with the liver. Once the flow is slowed down, these parts will be affected and show bad symptoms.
06 Liver fire affecting vital energy flow
The liver regulates vital energy flow of our body, harmonizing our life systems. Thus, once this vital function is affected, many parts of our body that are associated with the transportation of the vital energy are also affected.
In summary, the liver regulates the transportation function of vital energy flow of our body. Once the liver function is affected by Anger, many of our organs and body parts will be affected. Thus, it is best that we do not become angry.
Thus, we will discuss Anger Management next.
