Sexual Meridian In Your Personality
The sexual meridian is best represented by the god or goddess archetype. Alluring, captivating, and graceful this meridian encourages spontaneity and gaiety. As an emotional type, they connect empathically with others and often times take others’ emotions into themselves. They see the big picture and often focus on ideas over details.
When not at their best, this meridian can be moody and unpredictable. They are more likely to harm themselves than others.
Since the sexual meridian focuses on growth, both physical and psychological, our sexual meridian in western medicine centers on the endocrine system. The endocrine system manages the body’s hormone production, mood, and male/female organs.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the conception vessel is the ruler of all feminine yin energy in the body. The meridian runs down the front of the body. In Traditional Chinese medicine, the sexual meridian works closely with all of the yin meridians, but none more so than the kidney and lungs. In women, the “Sea of Qi” regulates the uterus, menstruation, menopause, and pregnancy.
