It is such an honor for me to visit the “Holy Land†that is the true original home of Macrobiotics that George Ohsawa and so many others described with an Asian(Yin/Yang) perspective. In Michio Kushi’s Spiritual Seminars in the 1980’s that reflected on the roots of Macrobiotics, the Holy Land was a common theme of discussion. The Mogen David- Star of David is the Hebrew version of the Yin/Yang symbol represented by the united complementary opposite triangles joined as one to create unity and peace.

Introduction Evening February 26th and almost all the workshops will include some often overlooked perspectives of Macrobiotics,Yin Yang and the 5 Transformations.

“The Bigger the Backâ€, which coincides with Rosh Chodesh Adar that depicts a similar theme of “all that appears to be is not what it seems†will be a common thread that weaves its way through the workshop series I am calling “The Israeli Inspirationâ€
An example–
A client Ruth T.  A vegetarian has had chronic Lung symptoms (bronchitis and asthma for 30 years). Upon working on her with Zen-Touch Shiatsu, I got the oddest picture in my awareness of a woman walking at night, as well as a feeling in the texture of her skin that reminded me a certain food which I will reveal in a moment. I usually let these perceptions go and focus on the energy field moving through the meridian and trust if any intuitive perceptions are important, I will remember them later.
I finished the bodywork session and it was time to make recommendations.

Potatoes, a nightshade plant also (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and tobacco) grow at night keeping people awake when sleep is required. They have no central energetic core which often also leads to excess upward energy. Potatoes raise blood sugar quickly and contain alkaloid substance that may cause toxicity.

At first glance (the obvious Front) it would have made “sense†to make recommendations for her lung symptoms that she was inquiring about…AND her lungs, according to touch, were actually her strongest organs.
I sat quietly for a moment and reflected on the feeling during the session. The image of her walking at night came to mind
I found myself asking, how is your sleeping? She replied that she is a “sleepwalkerâ€.  She has adapted herself to this scenario and because it is not problematic for her, didn’t even mention it to me. She was more concerned with her Lungs.
I immediately asked if she ate boiled potatoes regularly as this was the food that came to mind when sensing the quality of her skin texture. She replied that is what she practically lives on.
Being a nightshade plant as well as having other challenging characteristics and most importantly that I felt it on her skin, I asked her to stop eating them for one week to see if her symptoms got better.

She called me 3 or 4 days later saying that she has for the first time in 30 years slept through the night and has not coughed once. Along with her including typical Macrobiotic style food preparation and specific Chi exercises, I heard from her only once about a month later, saying that all symptoms have subsided and that she was free to pursue her creative life.
A lot of times the simplest recommendation when it is “spot on†makes the difference. Gotta love those moments.

 E-motions and Healing
Feelings/ Emotions are our most powerful source of energy. While it may take 5 -20 minutes for our blood sugar to heighten vitality after eating, one “push button†comment from an “adversary†will   boost our energy immediately. Learn a simple and very powerful technique to use e-motional energy and feelings for healing.     See anger post
Learn the specific SOURCE (organs, meridians) requiring optimization and foods as well as lifestyle practices that will create harmony/healing with E-Motions-  from within.

Communication and Relationships
Now that we know how to use feelings instead of them using us, it will become easier to communicate our feelings, needs and requests in relationship without judging any one’s actions. Our interpretative judgements of others-conscious or subconscious are perceived and is perhaps the greatest source of separation within any relationship- personal or business.

Vision training from a Yin/Yang Perspective

Vision Training– our vision is commonly the first sense to become compromised when a chronic dis-ease or extreme pattern is present in the workings of our daily body-mind-spirit. “Seeing†takes 38 times more blood flow than any other body function. When there is a compromise in a more essential organ like the heart or liver, the eyes will lend that blood flow to these more important organs.

Energy organs. meridians and life lessons according to birth month.
There are 12 months of the year and 12 major meridians/organs that are nourished in these months. We are only in the womb for 9 of these 12 months. This means that everyone comes in to this world with challenges that are based on the  monthly 5 Elemental seasons/ movements. I have found in my private practice that this birth map usually reveals people’s original life lessons that are reflected in a person’s health condition. Learn what your inherent challenges are and how to turn your them into your advantage.

  Missing Meridians from the Womb-
to find them, count 3 months after your Birthday. These 3 months or (partial months of 4 depending on which part of the month you are born in) are the missing energies and organs of your constitution

                  Dec. 21 – Jan. 19= Kidney                         June 21- July 21 = Small Intestine 

                  Jan. 20 – Feb.19 = Bladder                       July 22- Aug. 21= Triple Heater

                  Feb. 20 – March 20 = Liver                       Aug. 22- Sept.21 = Spleen

                March 21 – April 18 Gallbladder               Sept. 22-Oct. 22 = Stomach

                Apr. 19 – May 19 = Heart Regulator         Oct. 23 – Nov. 20 = Lung

                May 20 – June 20 = Heart                             Nov. 21 – Dec.20= Large Intestine

e.g. Someone born Jan 20th is missing,  Bladder,  Liver and Gallbladder

Someone born August 5th, is missing. some (1/2)  Triple Heater, all of Spleen, Stomach and some of (1/2 Lung). The missing months and their respective meridians /organs and associated lifestyle tendencies often represent  chronic challenges  that when resolved make a huge difference in one’s life and soul development.
