Did you know that according to Chinese Medicine there is a best time to poop!
There is also a best time to eat, to nap, to dream, to meditate and even to make love! I remember being wowed the first time I learned about the Law of Midday/Midnight or The Chinese Clock as it’s commonly known.
Qi moves through the body just like a wave moves through water. The crest of this wave circulates through particular organ systems at different times of the day.
For example, from 5:00-7:00 am there is a greater amount of Qi in the large intestine. How is this helpful? Well, if you suffer from constipation, you will be more likely to move your bowels at 6:00 a.m. than at any other time of day!
Why is breakfast the most important meal of the day? The stomach Qi is strongest from 7:00-9:00 am! It is easier to digest anything in the morning! At the opposite time, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. the Qi is lowest in the stomach, that is why a light dinner is beneficial!
What can you do instead of eating a big dinner? Make love! From 7:00-9:00 pm the Qi is in the Heart Protector/Circulation Sex function of the body! This function is responsible for relationships, communication, and the birds and the bees!
Here are a three more examples:
Best time to—
Meditate: 3:00-5:00 a.m. Lung time—Connection to Spirit/Breath
Nap: 3:00-5:00 p.m. Siesta time! When the Qi is in the bladder—the storehouse of energy in the body!
Dream/be creative: 1:00-3:00 a.m.: Qi in the liver—creativity and the wandering etheric body (Hun). (Know any artists who like to create at that time of the morning?)
What time is it now? check the clock above to see what you could be doing!
Ah! Watch out for these “Red Flags:”
