The alchemist is one of Infinity Flexibility’s 16 meridian archetypes – a system to define the characteristics and qualities associated with the TCM meridians.
The lung meridian as the alchemist controls the body’s qi. It creates and distributes Wei-Qi, an energetic immune-system-like barrier that protects us from harmful pathogens. Wei-Qi is the body’s first line of defense against outside invaders.
In literature, the alchemist used instruments and chemicals to transform elements from their original form into something new. Instead of using instruments and chemicals, the lungs transform breath into life. The lung meridian helps us absorb new ideas- assimilating what can be used and releasing what no longer serves.
If you are seeking to transform stagnant energy, let go of grief and apathy, or push through a lack of inspiration, the lung meridian is the place to start.
