SU WEH CHAPTER 5:
"In the human body there are zang organs of the liver, heart, spleen, lung and kidneys. The five zang organs form the five spirits and gives rise to the five emotions.
Spirit of the heart is known as the SHEN, which rules mental and creative functions. The spirit of the liver, the HUN rules the nervous system and gives rise to extrasensory perception. The spirit of the spleen, of YI, rules the logic or reasoning power. The spirit of the lungs, or PO, rules the animalistic instincts, physical strength and stamina. The spirit of the kidneys, the ZHI, rules the will, drive, ambition, and survival instinct. "
In this lecture I will demonstrate how it is possible to see the Congenital and acquired SHEN of the patient by using BA-ZI (four pillars of destiny) method, and tongue diagnosis.
BA ZI method helps us to understand the congenital energetic DNA of the person, and allows us to identify his true self. To distinguish between the strong, weak or balanced elements, how he looks at himself and at the world and how he acts there.
By observing the tongue map we can see the current situation on the spiritual, emotional and physical aspects. to Identify the manifestations of the 5 zang on the tongue
With the combination of these two strong tools we can see the wide picture about the patient's shen, and to live in harmony with himself and with the surroundings.
