Autumn the Season of Metal
When you enter the meditation and training room at the Harlem Ki Energy Center, you will see a circular symbol which represents the five elements Fire, Water, Wood, Earth and Metal. This symbol is called the Symbol of Truth by many Taoist because the five elements are considered to be the true foundations of life. Autumn is the season of the element of metal. Each of the five elements has a relationship with the universes and the human body.
The Yin/Yang organs that correspond to the element of Metal are the Lungs (Yin) and the Large Intestine (Yang). It is very important to develop a detoxification strategy in autumn, to prepare for the coming winter. More people die from colon cancer and lung cancer than any other cancer related disease. Special attention should always be given to the care of the lungs and large intestine in the autumn.
The large intestine is the last part of the digestive system in humans and all vertebrate animals. Its function is to absorb water from the remaining indigestible food matter and then pass useless waste material from the body. The large intestine consists of the cecum, colon, rectum and anal canal.
The lungs mix blood with oxygen, and expel used air, carbon dioxide, and other toxins. The lungs control skin and sweat. The following are recommended ways to detoxify the large intestine and the lungs.
Ki Energy treatments always start with detoxifying pressure to vital organs located in the abdominal area and the four lung detox points; a very good reason to have Ki treatments especially in the autumn. If you are not able to schedule an appointment for a Ki Energy treatment at our Harlem wellness center, Taoist master Mantak Chia gives instructions on how to do it yourself in his book Chi Nei Tsang: Internal Organs Chi Massage.
Korean grand master Insan Kim a legendary Korean Taoist herbalist and healer, perfected the alchemy of transforming Korean sea salt into what is called “Divine Medicine” or Bamboo salt over 100 years ago. Using Korean folk remedies dating back thousands of years master Kim used the Five Elements Water(sea-salt) contained in Wood(bamboo) sealed by Earth(pure mineral clay) confined in Metal(iron furnace) to be transformed into Insan Bamboo Salt by yang Fire created by yin Wood (pine resin).
