Meridian Archetypes

The Politician: A Heart Meridian Archetype 

The theme of the heart is unity. It connects yin and yang, which are two states of being with the same life force. If our spirit is not congruent, our heart meridian cannot process thoughts and feelings properly. Congruence comes when the mind and heart are working together. Together the heart and mind control the will. Without congruence, the will is subject to the influence of an outside force.

The Artist: A Small Intestine Meridian Archetype 

We know that extreme emotions can negatively affect our digestion, causing poor absorption and slow movement through the digestive tract. This is why we refuse food in the face of grief or lose our appetite when our fight-or-flight response is triggered. Unfortunately, poor digestion can also aggravate our stress response. They feed off of each other in a symbiotic relationship. Therefore, to have a healthy digestive system, we need to take care of both our minds and our bodies.

The Mediator: A Spleen Meridian Archetype 

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, earth elements are particularly important in times of transition. They keep us grounded and protected during turbulence, and allow us to bloom and grow during times of peace. However, though the spleen meridian thrives in times of peace, that does not mean they revile conflict. One of their greatest strengths is seeing both sides of an argument and mediating a compromise.
