The Chinese 5 element theory describes 5 phases of energy: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal. Each of these energies can be thought of as a distinct vibration. Vibrations reflect fabrics of consciousness. This means the qualities of each element manifest in a specific way as determined by the information (frequency) of the field in which it arises. When we look at the elements as five fabrics, we see they exist in the realm of duality and their natural rhythm is to interpenetrate one another, creating a complicated and dynamic expression of life. When one of the vibrations (fabrics) is out of balance, it will influence the others, and if the imbalance is great enough, it will change the overall frequency of the life force and we will feel the repercussions in our body, mind and/or emotions. 5 Element acupuncture is a specific form of acupuncture that specializes in perceiving the relationship between the elements and making adjustments to the energy field to optimize harmony.
As mentioned, the 5 elements reside in the realm of duality. In meditation, we can have an experience beyond duality. One way to describe this experience is the self tuning into the vibration that penetrates beyond the personality and into the realm of the Soul Plane. In samadhi, or total absorption, we attune to the frequency that extends beyond the Soul Plane and into the Monadic Plane, the field of Original Consciousness.
Inner plane work is practices that consciously cultivate as a way of seeking what exists beyond our ego. Our Monadic ray vibrates through all three planes – Monadic, Soul and Personality. As we refine ourselves the timing becomes ripe for our Soul Rays to penetrate into our denser aspect of our personality. Then our path shifts from a personal experience to our souls journey.
Esoteric Acupuncture is one tool of many that helps balance the 5 fabrics of consciousness, improving the overall quality health and life experience, and invite the awakening of the Souls Journey.
