Walking on the veranda.
That's the name of one of my favorite acupuncture points. This spring I've been teaching a class at the local acupuncture school about the meaning of the points. Each one has a particular gift, a name and a purpose. Maybe I've shared the meaning of a point with you during a treatment sometime? I find them very inspiring.
Walking on the Veranda is a point we use when someone is recovering from a time of illness or difficulty that has kept them inside - or inside themselves - for some time. When they are just starting to feel better, we use this point to encourage their energy to come forth in a safe, protected way. It is like stepping out into the sun for the first time in a while, and also feeling safe and contained. It brings energy, hope and a fresh perspective to your ongoing rebuilding.
We've all been enjoying the spring sunshine when it shows up. Those first few warm spring days, when you are soaking up the sun after a long winter, give you an idea of the quality of this point. Next time you feel that, try taking an extra moment to really enjoy it. You might also offer another breath to send that energy to someone who still feels in the dark for whatever reason.
I feel it is a gift and an honor to be able to offer help people in this way. If you or someone you know is feeling in need of this kind of support, contact me for a free consultation.
Wishing you all the best this spring,
