LIVER MERIDIAN

Liver Meridian

In Your Personality

High Traits

The liver meridian is the home of freedom and giving. This personality type is one of four emotional personality types meaning that they are deeply emotional and hyper-sensitive to the needs of others. These folks are great givers and caretakers. They are into liberation and freedom, and when being themselves are proud, independent, and assertive.

Low Traits

On the flip side, the liver meridian can be codependent and will sacrifice themselves for the needs of others. With every high, there is an equal and opposite low. This meridian also has issues with internal frustration and resentment.

Eastern Medicine

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the liver meridian influences our overall emotional state. It stores blood which is the carrier of Qi in the body. Without proper flow, Qi and blood cannot flow smoothly. Since it plays such a crucial role in controlling our blood, our liver also helps regulate menstruation in women.

Our liver meridian is responsible for the digestive functions of the Stomach and Spleen meridians. Our muscular activity, including flexibility of tendons and ligaments, is also controlled by the liver meridian. It is said to be home to the “Hun,” a concept from TCM that is considered the yang part of our soul or spirit.
