The old human mindset me would have felt bad that i didn't do it. I would guilt myself. Those are just programs of maybe how we learned how to motivate ourselves. They are not really a healthy alignment for they are depleting program and it disrupts the body clock. It is not our true identity either. It is about worry, anxiety and not love. Even though I didn't exercise, I have to go back to how we are put together.
Circadian rhythms. The body clock. Your body knows. There is a subconscious program that is in harmony. There is time to eat, sleep, work, sex and mental work and is all set out like clockwork in traditional Chinese medicine. The timing and schedule are crucial to maintain health. The Chinese medicine was able to listen and chart it out.
Our bodies move like clockwork and each organ meridian has a two-hour period when qi (energy) is at its peak and down time. The qi flows clockwise through the 12 meridians over 24 hours and shifts between yin (cold) and yang (hot) energies.
Living in the flow of the clock is strengthening. Living against the grain is sabotaging yourself. This is conflict within. This is a division on the inside of us through the male/female the yang/yin and those conflict energies projects out in the world as loss of freedom as well a hierarchy of pimp and prostitute. The power struggles.
Warring States Period (476-221 BC), the earliest foundational text of Chinese traditional medicine, "Medical Classic of the Yellow Emperor," sets out a guide to healthy living, not by prescribing medicine, but a way of life in tune with the universe and the body's rhythms and cycles. That includes deep sleep.
The 12 meridians is a river of flowing energy. Your fluidity that comes with grace and ease only when your clock points out a manual for living. It isn't a dictator. It is a perfect healthy blueprint that we are out of alignment with. Life took over and is dictating over our True identity.
Energy flows best when it goes from one task to other of eating, sleeping and so on. Everything works together. Disrupted energy flow leads to health problems.
SLEEP - Liver (1-3am) and Lung (3-5am) People should be in deep asleep during both Liver and lung time. The liver meridian is dispeling toxins and produce fresh new blood in liver, while lung meridian to distribute the energy and blood produced by the liver to the organs. Both jobs can best be accomplished while people are fast asleep. Insomnia - may have over active yang energy. Remedy - Time to soothe nerves and dispel overactive fire in the organs.
AWAKE & WASH - Between - Large Intestines (5-7am) When the lung meridian finishes its job of distributing energy and blood to the organs from 3am to 5am, the large intestine takes over. This means one should get up, go to the toilet and move the bowels at this time. Important to dispel pathogenic energies in the body.
BREAKFAST - Stomach (7am-9am) The stomach meridian is active. Take deep breaths before eatting to help with digestion as well as rub the tummy. With sufficient yang energy from food, the spleen then turns the nutrition into energy and leaves no extra fat to accumulate. Big breakfast.
WORK - Spleen (9am-11am) Blood and energy flow to the spleen meridian to support metabolism, conversion of nutrients into blood and energy and send them to muscles. These two hours are prime time for working since healthy spleen can finish the job. And the energy and blood distributed by the spleen will support activity.
LUNCHTIME - Heart (11am-1pm) Lunchtime. A balanced, nutritious medium size lunch is important.
EXERCISES - Small Intestine (1pm-3pm) After lunch and a nap (no more than an hour), it is time for more activity, as the small intestine works to separate and distribute digested nutrients.
MENTAL WORK Bladder (3pm-5pm) These are prime hours of the day for work and study. It's when the bladder meridian goes to work. There are two bladder meridians, one on each side of the spine and running from foot to the head and the brain. Since energy and blood flow actively into the brain during shen, it is a good time for efficient work. Drinking afternoon tea is advised. The bladder meridian also is a major toxin-expelling channel and handles toxins dispelled by other meridians. Drinking extra water promotes detoxification as toxins are passed in urine.
DINNER - Kidney (5pm-7pm) The kidneys start to store "essence" as the kidney meridian takes its turn. This is the best time for kidney-reinforcing therapy. It's time for dinner but not too much. A little wine is good to activate blood circulation, according to Dr Wang, but don't get drunk.
REST - Circulation Sex (7pm-9pm) The pericardium is the fluid-filled sac that surrounds the heart and the roots of the major blood vessels. It contains channels of blood and energy. When it is activated at wu, it dispels all the pathogenic energy around the heart to protect it. At this time it's advised to soak the feet in hot water, which can help dispel pathogenic heat and damp and activate the blood. This is a good time for a bit of reading, says Dr Wang, but not too much lest it hurt the eyes. It's also not advisable to "think" too deeply at wu, since too much mental activity causes excessive fire-heat ascending and deficient kidney yin, resulting in heart-kidney imbalance and possible sexual dysfunction. Massaging yong quan point (the arch of foot) in both feet can help nourish kidney energy.
SEX - Triple Warmer (9pm-11pm) Hai is also considered the best time of the day for sex (also getting pregnant), when yin and yang are in balance in the body and in the universe, according to Qu Limin, author of the popular book "Twelve Hours and Health Maintenance." She says it's based on the daily schedule for health in the "Medical Classic of the Yellow Emperor," the foundational TCM text. After spending time dining and talking with family and friends, one tends to be in a good mood, so it's time to feed the body with joy, says Qu. According to TCM, one should avoid sex when the energy in the universe is disrupted (since it's also disrupted within the body): during heavy storms, high winds, other weather upheavals, earthquakes, eclipses of the sun and moon. Internal energy is disordered when one is drunk or has eaten too much, so in these cases it's best to wait to have sex.
BEDTIME - Gall Bladder (11pm-1am) the darkest hour when strong yin energy starts to fade and yang energy begins to grow. Sufficient yang energy is crucial for people to stay active during the day, and it should be well-stored at the right time. Since sleep is the best way to store yang energy, it is best to be at deep sleep at 11pm-1am, which means you should go to sleep at 9-11pm. People should not go outdoors after 10pm, you should be fast asleep.
This is a way of living according to your personal life force energy.
