Energy Imbalance and Negative Emotions

Copyright (c) 2010 Stephen Lau

We are living in a world, which is complex and forever changing. As such, our personality is also a complex and changing component of who we are and how we cope with our problems.

For thousands of years, the Chinese have believed that the human body is dominated by the presence of "qi", which is internal life energy. Based on the concept of balance between "yin" and "yang", the Chinese also believe that energy imbalance or imbalance of internal life energy can be attributed to different negative emotions experienced in life.

If a person experiences negative emotions of guilt, the energy imbalance may change the personality, making that person become manipulative or prone to blaming others.

Energy imbalance due to negative emotions of grief and sorrow over an extended period of time may cause a person to become depressed or to resign to the perception of failure in life.

Traumatic life experiences, such as sexual abuse, or even physical imperfections, can lead to energy imbalance that can cause negative emotions of shame and low self-esteem with devastating effects, such as difficulties in self-acceptance or self-sabotaging behaviors, such as drug abuse or alcoholism.

Fear, due to energy imbalance, is more often than not a negative emotion that can be debilitating. For one thing, it can limit the growth of personality; for another, it can lead to negative emotions, including jealousy, stress, or even fear of success. The only positive effect of fear is that it may help avoiding danger; however, fear can also lead to anxiety and paranoia, which are negative emotions.

Obsessive desire for fame, power, or money can deplete internal life energy, leading to energy imbalance, which results in addictions. Desire can never be satisfied: having one desire achieved is often followed by another replacing it.

Anger is another negative emotion that drains one's internal life energy, causing energy imbalance. Anger nurtures resentment and revenge, which are negative emotions or destructive outcomes of energy imbalance.

Pride is more of a negative than a positive emotion. Although pride can give one an incentive in life, pride often leads to inflated ego, which may become vulnerable. Pride may also cause shame when one's projected accomplishments fail to materialize. Pride can cause energy imbalance.

Positive emotions, on the other hand, can supply more internal life energy to deal with life's problems.

Courage, for example, is positive emotion in that it gives you confidence to accept new challenges in life, to embrace the opportunities of life, and to confront fear as well as to overcome obstacles.

Acceptance is a positive emotion in that it enables one to accept success as well as failure, to know that there are ups and downs in life, and to recognize that there are neither simple answers nor rigid solutions to life's problems. More importantly, acceptance means happiness is within oneself, and that love comes from within -- not something that can be given or taken away by someone.

Life is complex, and so are human emotions. Just remember that emotions, positive or negative, have a positive or negative impact on your internal life energy, and that energy imbalance due to negative emotions is the major cause of disease and distress in life. Manage your energy system to manage your health and wellness.

Why We Get Sick from the Oriental Perspective
In Western medicine, health is absence of disease. Hence, without disease, you are deemed healthy. However, from the Oriental perspective, absence of disease may not be an indicator of good health. Are you healthy? If absence of disease is health, then how does disease begin? If we know how disease begins, can we prevent it? If disease can be prevented, why do we get sick? Disease begins with the mind, not the body. The mind and the body are two fully integrated features of life. As a...

Mind Power

How you experience life, and how life experiences affect you depend on the power of your mind.

Mind Power is Mind Over Matter
Copyright (c) 2010 Stephen Lau The human mind is very powerful in that it can create reality for us. It is mind over matter. The art of living well also begins with the mind.

Diet and Hair Loss
Hair loss is a common, emotionally devastating experience in life because it affects the majority of people at one time or another in their lives. Many men are suffering baldness in silence because they are afraid to admit their undue concern over their hair; women are more traumatized than men because their hair loss is often perceived as abnormal by society. To treat your hair problem, you must understand some of the basics of human hair. Your hair itself is made up of dead cells, although...

Chinese Approach to Digestive Health
Copyright (c) 2010 Stephen Lau Chinese medicine is based on the concept of balance and harmony between yin and yang. Chinese medicine has a different approach to digestive health. In Chinese medicine, the liver stores the blood, that is, it regulates the amount of blood in circulation. Hence, the health of the liver is dependent on the sufficiency of blood for nourishment. Additionally, the spleen, in contrast to Western medicine, also plays a pivotal part in the circulation of qi and...

How To Restore Natural Health
Copyright (c) 2009 Stephen Lau Ill health is the accumulation of all the wrong things you have done to your health over the years. For someone who is very ill, it may seem difficult, almost impossible, to restore natural health and get well again. To restore natural health, you need a vision of good health and wholeness.
