Studying and identifying the daily meridian clock rotation provides an insight into the rhythm of life. Understanding the meridian clock and respecting its natural flow can assist a healthy lifestyle.
The Spleen and Stomach Meridians:
From 0700 – 1100, the spleen and stomach organs which relate with the wood meridian are active. It the time to rise from the slumbering and break the overnight fast. Before 0700 the large intestine is active which motivates the morning elimination. The best time to wake up is between 0700 and 0800 in relation to the meridian clock.
For many people, a productive time may be between 0700 and 1100 during the active spleen and stomach meridians.
The Afternoon Fire Meridians of the Heart and Small Intestine:
The Fire Meridian is active in relation with the heart and small intestine meridians and organs between 1100 and 1500. This is the best time to accomplish a task or physical labor. Caffeine addiction is predominately prevalent among the world because of the early morning indulgence during the active spleen meridian. Commonly, from observation, multitudes will awake and break their overnight fast with a cup of coffee, or unsophisticated multiple cups. In the morning, our chemistry is vulnerable to addiction. It is a healthy benefit to have a breakfast prior to the active Fire Meridian, and wait until after 1100 for active fire meridian to drink caffeine. The design of the active fire meridian from 1100 to 1500 creates midday work production.
The Bladder and Kidney Meridian:
The water meridian is active that relates with the bladder and kidney meridian and organs between 1500 and 1900. This is a natural siesta time of the day. You may notice an energetic change around 1600, it is the most non-productive time of the day. Note that the water meridian is active between the two active fire meridians. Naturally, during the active water meridian should be a time of relaxation and even a nap that can add to a healthy lifestyle of routine.
The Active Sex Organ Fire Meridian of the Evening:
At 1900 the fire meridian is active, again, until 2300. However, this time there are different organs active; the sex organs from 1900 – 2100 and the thyroid and adrenals from 2100 – 2300. Have you ever wondered why there is a strong motivation for entertainment in the evenings? Clearly proven among the younger generation this inner motivation in the evenings, although unaware, the active sex organs and the thyroid gland are the inner cause. Is your pet actively ebullient in the evenings, cats seem crazily playful in the evenings, and many cats nap every day between 1400 and 1800 during the water meridian.
The natural sense of the daily meridian clock generates a healthy lifestyle and disposition, unfortunately, though, the majority of humanity is unaware the natural rhythm of the meridian clock. Possibly this could explain why multitudes of people experience “a bad day”. In the morning, we eliminate and eat after fasting throughout the night. Fire is active that provides the best time to work, and then the water meridian is a natural break throughout the day. In the evening couples may have dinner, entertainment, and sex—a perfect day!
The Active Overnight Meridians:
2300 hundred is the best time to go to sleep, between 2300 and 0300 the wood meridian is active that relates to the liver and gall bladder. Partying into the early hours in the morning can be unhealthy. The reason debauchery may occur during the night with people that are drinking is that the liver is active between 0100 and 0300, and the liver relates with anger and resentment along with a host of other negative emotions.
Between 0300 and 0700, the metal meridian that relates with the lung and large intestine is active. Have you ever wondered why a large amount of people wake up around 0400? The lung meridian is active between 0300 and 0500, however, the similar emotions are Dogmatically Positioned and Grief. Contemplating that an immense amount of humanity is Dogmatically Positioned from the falsehood the world teaches through the media and religion, there should not be a wonder why people wake up during the active lung meridian. Dogmatically Positioned generates grief; in addition, that a majority of humanity smokes that effects the lung organ. Between 0500 and 0700, the large intestine organ and meridian are active. The coldest time of the night is during the hours of 0500 and 0600. The active large intestine organ preps our morning elimination of waste.
* If you experience a slothful energetic shutdown during the active fire meridian (1100-1500) your fire energy could be imbalanced. This imbalance may be from a congested emotional reality. The fire meridian relates with a large variety of negative emotions that included Lost, Abandon, absent mindedness, and depleted. Also, if your water meridian is imbalanced, you may experience a lethargic episode during the fire meridian and energetic during the active water meridian.
** An over active fire meridian can lead to depletion, balance is the key.
*** Sleeping through the morning into the fire meridian can be very unhealthy. Drinking and partying into the early morning hours is extremely unhealthy—observe people that live that type of lifestyle and who sleep through the earth meridian.
Recognizing the energetic dynamics of the meridian clock of the natural human rhythm of the day can assist in well being for our human chemistry.
The 12 Acupuncture Meridian System:
The Chinese Acupuncture Meridian Clock is an example of a 24-hour cycle which portrays the body’s complete functions as well as its relationship with diet. There are 12 meridians, each taking the lead for two hours during the 24-hour period. Each of the 12 meridians has a dual flow, a coming and a going, marking 24 cycles per day.
The clock delineates which meridian system is activated and dominant at a specific time. Since these cycles happen automatically, we do not have to be preoccupied with them. However, if we know of these cycles, then we can make better decisions when it is generally best to eat, exercise and sleep.
