St4 Di Cang – Gathering of the earthly harvest/ earth granary
Location: lateral to corner of mouth.
This point is symbolic of the gathering of the harvest. The earth is a source of unending nourishment so long as we care for it. It provides energy and nourishment for our body’s movement and structure. This point enables us to access this energy as well as allowing ourselves to nourish and nurture our self.
This point is useful where there is a dysfunction in our ability to nourish ourselves. This may manifest as neediness, cravings or eating disorders, dysfunctional relationships with our mother or unmet emotional needs from our infancy, a compulsion to give and a reluctance to receive.
This point can help us open to being nourished and nurtured in our life.
Imagine: attending a banquet where all your favourite foods are there for you to sample. The food is full of taste, life and energy. Feel it nourish you to the core. This food is symbolic of the energy and vitality we receive when we nurture our heart.
