Meridians and Fragrance Alchemy
Q. What is the meaning of the time frames associated with the negative, neutral and positive aspect of each meridian?
Since the directions don’t state right or left foot wrist, for example, does it matter which we side we treat?
Also, do we massage the oil into the meridian for the full time of the treatment of a partiuclar meridian or just a few seconds?
A. Thank you for your very relevant questions. Here is Almine’s explanation:
“The meridians are receptive during the suggested time frames, but the healing of the meridians can really be done at any time.
The negative aspect of guilt would be an introverted response to it. An example of this would be self-reproach, self-loathing and agonizing over past deeds. The positive aspect of guilt would try and suppress it by overcompensating through extravagant gestures, or by trying to blame others. As you can see, the positive aspect is a more extroverted response to a negative emotion. The neutral area of guilt can exist of dealing with it in any way at all. It could be so suppressed, that the only sign of its presence may be the dialogue of the mind that keeps it below the surface. One could describe the neutral aspect of a negative emotion as being in denial or unconscious. It does not matter which side of the body you treat, however, I would personally tend to favor the right if the emotion is acted out positively, and the left when it turns inward upon itself. For the neutral aspect, I would choose either side.
The massaging can be done just for a few seconds because the primary element is the fragrance on the meridian point, and not the massaging. In fact, in ancient Egyptian texts it is suggested that there not be more than a few seconds of massaging in the anointing of a body.”
