Brain Meridian

Brain Meridian In Your Personality

High Traits

The brain meridian represents the world’s masters, gurus, and aristocrats. They are naturally attracted to social settings where they have present a regal, polite, and civil demeanor. They seek out the big names in their industry and are refined and gracious acquaintances. Their archetype, the Engineer, drives them to work methodically and implies an analytical view of life.

Low Traits

On the other hand, the brain meridian can be neurotic and rough. Their mind works against them and they can become paranoid, antagonistic, and defensive.

Brain Functions

Western Medicine

Human consciousness evolved with an increase in brain growth and complexity. Signals from the brain travel through the body via the spinal cord and central nervous system. Each section of the brain performs an essential role in the movement of the body, creation of original thought, interpretation of powerful emotions, and manifestation of the unique spirit of every human on this planet.

Eastern Medicine

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the governing vessel is the ruler of all masculine yang energy in the body. The meridian runs down the back of the body and therefore governs the body’s protective Wei Qi.
