summer: Heart Station


flower heartThe arrival of summer was celebrated by all civilizations since the world began. Even in ancient times our ancestors observed that with the arrival of the time of year the days were longer and the nights were shorter than usual and looking at the sky concluded that the position of the stars was variable, that climate changes occurred that marked the rhythm of the tides and timing of planting, harvesting and living things, consciously or not, lived according to the dictates of nature. Thus, knowledge of natural cycles is what has guided the life and work through history to ensure the survival of our ancestors to the present day.

Most civilizations were based primarily on two astronomical time:

The solstices and equinoxes, the former being the most celebrated with various rituals, according to the culture and religion of each. From the ancient Egyptians to the Incas, Maya, Roman and Greek, passing witches, magicians and sorcerers, all peoples have organized festivities in honor of the sun king, since the summer solstice is the only day of the year when the sun is present more hours. In fact the term "solstice" comes from the Latin "Solstitium", namely, "Quiet Sun", in reference to when the sun is at the horizon in the northernmost position relative to the earth remains for a couple of days. The observation that from this date the days are getting shorter leave me thinking that the sun could not regain your strength and splendor, giving rise to all kinds of fire-based rituals to help the renewal of solar energy while purifying every living and protect you from demonic influences.

Summer is the season of growth and maturation of nature; flowers and fruits are present around us and the plants grow as if to touch the sky. This upward movement accompanied by heat flow is precisely the activity that Wu Xing theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (MTC) associated with fire, it to red and both with the Heart, since this organ is the regulator of blood circulation, therefore, "Sovereign master, Emperor Fountain " (Shu Wen). According to a popular proverb Chinese medicine "the heart is the ruler of the summer; is the root of life and generates all the changes of the spirit. By the skin of a person can know the condition of your heart ".

Physiologically, for ancient oriental medical blood governs the heart and blood vessels, what fuels the whole body. Its good or bad on the face will externalize. So much so that "The color pink usually fresh and becomes pathological, off the grayish grayish violet, cuando la energía del corazón y la circulación if Agota of them blood vessels is numb " (Ling Shu)

However, el órgano manifiesta emperor is standing on the ground to abeam del rostro bell that uses también la lengua as vía de salida. Según them texts clásicos "el corazón del hole is encuentra en la lengua" (Shu Wen), llamada for this reason "espejo del corazón". The abeam ella y flavors can distinguish them enjoy la capacidad del habla. His condition is critical to such an extent that their observation MTC is used in clinical practice as a diagnostic significant.

Besides its physiological aspect the heart, like all living, has its emotional side, which is identified with the joy and manifests through laughter. A state of being and joy makes it harmonious energy circulation, however, an excess of any emotion, including joy, drowning can become pathological heart energy and disrupting its operation, as well as of other organs / bowels.

In the psychic plane the heart is the abode of Shen, abstract term that could be identified with the "mental energy" or "consciousness soul", a so-called "Three Treasures" at MTC. When Shen rightful control of all mental activity and brain as well as the smooth running of the whole organism, so much so that according to Wen Shu "Knowing retain Shen is life. Losing Shen is death ".

Summer is for the period of the reign of the heart and Yang energy peak: sun, heat, movement and expansion. That is why during these summer months we should take to recharge energy.
