as you probably know, master acupuncturists are alchemists.
They can transform your energy body by inserting acupuncture needles into specific acupuncture points along meridians of energy (qi). Why would they do this?
They do this because the more that your energy body is out of balance then the more likely your physical body will be out of balance, and produce symptoms of ill health.
This alchemical approach to resolving health issues starts with knowing your alchemical balance from birth. For you see, as the romantic scientist Humboldt said, "alchemy is a satisfactory philosophy of knowledge; whereas science is a satisfactory philosophy of ignorance"!
This knowledge of alchemical imbalance from birth was summed up poetically by another great western thinker thus:
'when you to the world were given,
the sun stood still and greeted every star,
and ever since you have striven
to grow by the laws that rule who you are.
and in all of time
no power can undo
the living form
that life created of you'
And it's true, no power can undo the alchemical laws of birth. But what can be done is to transform those alchemical imbalances, to transform by degrees to prevent those energy body imbalances becoming so great that they produce symptoms of ill health. This is where the master acupuncturist comes in.
Goethe makes the connection between alchemy and astrology. The master acupuncturist connects daoist alchemy and chinese astrology to balance the energy body.
Astrology is very popular these days, even chinese astrology. Doesn't everyone know whether they are a Water Dragon or an Earth Dog or a Metal Tiger etc? And even probably know the cute thumbnail characteristics of being an Earth Dog, for instance (the generous, affectionate, homeloving type of dog!).
Even so, what hides behind this folksy chinese astrological picture is an alchemic mosaic of energy patterns that defines each of us as unique individuals, each of us as representations of a moment in time and space as the sun stood still and greeted every star.
The alchemy of you is the energetic moment of your birth. Knowing your 'personal energy signature' i.e. the alchemy of you, is essential knowledge for the master acupuncturist in diagnosis and treament.
Knowing your own alchemy is empowering, you might say it's a birthright!
