Wellness is much more than being free from pain or illness. It means thriving in all areas of life, rather than simply surviving.  Wellness is about living with connection to self and others, having a positive mindset, feeling light, energised and alive, while making conscious and empowered choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life. 

Health is a state of body. Wellness is a state of being.

~ J Stanford

Spring - Wood Element

Wood is the first season of the year that represents youth. As a daytime analogy, spring is the morning. It is a new beginning and the time of the year to rise early at dawn when the air is at its purest (even in cities), everything is fresh, alive, active and abundant. The forces of nature are at work. The trees and flowers are blossoming; everything explodes with life since spring has this ascending and active nature. Plants break through the ground, animals are born, and it’s a time of dramatic shift and change.

The Gallbladder (GB) represents the rules, the minister, the defence mechanism, the army, the police, the orders, balance, angles, stress, violence, etc. Running along the entire side body (from temples, to ribs, to hips, to side of the legs, side of the neck, side of the skull, and temples), the Gallbladder meridian is the longest meridian.

 If your GB is what we call “overactive” (too much energy), you will get lines/wrinkles on the sides of the head.

Gallbladder has to do with irritability and in the extreme case it can turn quickly into rage. Irritable means being rigid (structurally AND mentally), installing rules and dictating how things should be.

The sight of green colour from young plants nourishes our soul through the eyes, which results in a decrease in appetite and the body naturally cleansing itself.

For us individuals, it’s a powerful moment for healing, except if you’re not ready for it. Like a tree that has weak roots (=poor structural integrity) and would see its branches break from not being able to support the new weight of blossoming flowers and leaves. It’s the time to cleanse ourselves from excessive desire, dissatisfaction, impatience and anger. Our vision becomes clearer and we see things with a new angle. Our wishes, ideas, dreams of having this potential in us can bubble up into reality. If you have a positive thought of what direction you want your life to go, you have the potential at this time of the year where to make it happen. Just like getting up early and doing exercise/yoga/meditation/cold shower can set us up for the rest of the day, what we do in springtime can set us up for the rest of the year!

Wood is about twisting, flexibility (it governs joints and tendons of the body). If you are flexible you can stay steady. To stay steady you have to keep adapting to the problem.

When a person gets cranky, it usually just comes and goes. Even though the Gallbladder organ is small, it’s the longest meridian of the body.

The Liver is like the king in our body. It sets a standard for the entire functioning of the body and mind (sight, perception and direction). The Liver is about planning ahead: it’s the King who is planning what to do next. Whereas the Gallbladder makes it happen (like the minister doing what the king orders, or the police applying the law).

Addiction comes from the Liver!
