It is common for most of us to form opinions about people when speaking to them, observing their hair, their skin, their face, the sound of their voice, etc… An Oriental Medical Doctor will observe these things as well, only in a more systematic way.
Five key-points of Oriental
1. Assesses the health condition of our internal organs.
In traditional Chinese medicine, the face is an indicator of health or disease. In other words, our face reflects our lifestyle, the foods that we intake, our physical activity and our emotional and spiritual state. By studying skin conditions and changes, we can determine inner imbalances and stressed areas on the body. Because each area of the face relates to an internal body area, disharmony in that internal area will, in turn, lead to a change in the complexion, texture or moisture of the corresponding facial area. In general, red, hot and dry are indicative of Yang-type energy, and oily, white and cold are indicative of Yin-type energy. Lines indicate a long-term imbalance or stress, while breakouts indicate a more short-term imbalance or stress.
2. Uncovers genetic patterns restricting your optimal health
Oriental Diagnosis can read the origin of the conditions indicated by the facial features. The right side of the face reflects the influence of our mother and her genealogical tree, whereas the left side of our face corresponds to our paternal side and his ancestors.
Moreover experienced readers of this ancient art can understand the genetic patterns that have generated the actual constitution of the person being read. Therefore giving precious information about those patterns so that one can act on them and eventually overcome their restrictions on our health.
3. Identifies our habits
Our life today is essentially the sum of our habits. If we are in shape or out of shape is a result of your habits. How happy or unhappy we are? It is also a result of our habits. How successful or unsuccessful we are? It is again a result of our habits.
What we do repeatedly ultimately forms the person we are, what we believe, and the personality that we portray.
Our personal habits create the direction of our health and also of our life in general.
Traditional Chinese Medicine agrees with the proverb “A man is made by his own habits”,
Oriental diagnosis reads the effect of our habits in our lives allowing identifying the ones that are depleting our health.
4. Diagnose the future tendencies of possible health issues
This key point is a consequence of the above points. Our tendencies affect directly on our health state so it is very important to identify them and to understand what sort of health issues can arise from certain tendencies.
The starting point to shaping our own fate is to abandon the cowardly attitude of blaming other people or our environment for our present unhappiness or mistakes; we must adopt the stance that “everything is our own responsibility.” In addition, it is important to change the state of our mind, reflect on the tendencies of our own soul and break free from committing the same mistakes again. People who observe themselves and others with an enquiring mind, who minutely analyze the habits, tendencies, strengths and weaknesses of their soul, and who continually strive to change themselves and discard their current self: these are the people whose fate will change. This is Happy Science’s fundamental thinking with regard to “fate.”
5. Points out your qualities and potential
Oriental diagnosis is also a great tool to better understand our innate qualities that we have available to us during our life and the potential that comes from them.
We all have unique qualities that we came here with. Our target if life is to share them and use them to express our ultimate potential. If we don’t fulfill these we are avoiding our life to have its deepest meaning.
Once we realize what our qualities are we have the responsibility to use them and inspire others to use their own too.
Only then our full potential can flourish and be expressed to its full extent.
