Open to Love with Acupressure

Love is indeed a fascinating topic of discussion and combining it with acupressure can both open to love, and heal loss.

It is interesting to note that different languages have varying numbers of words to describe love. For example, Ancient Greek had six words for love, Sanskrit had 96 words, and Persian had 80. In English, we define love as "an intense feeling of deep affection." However, we use a variety of words to express different aspects of love, such as affection, fondness, tenderness, warmth, care, attachment, endearment, devotion, adoration, doting, idolization, worship, passion, ardor, desire, lust, yearning, and infatuation. It is worth mentioning that the specific subject of love, whether it be a child, a brother, a mother, God, or a lover, can influence the quality of love that we experience.

Just as we long for love, many of us have experienced heartache. The emotional pain of heartache can manifest in our bodies as tension or blockages along the meridians, leading to discomfort and emotional disharmony. In this blog post, we will explore how acupressure can help heal and open ourselves to the beautiful realm of love.

Specifically, we will focus on three meridians associated with love and relationships: the Heart, Triple Warmer, and Pericardium. Additionally, we will introduce specific acupressure points and techniques to support emotional healing and create space for new love to enter our lives.

1. Easing Defenses and Establishing Boundaries:

One important aspect of cultivating healthy relationships is maintaining boundaries. To support this, we can stimulate the Triple Warmer meridian. Start by applying gentle pressure to TW 6, also known as the "Great Defender" point. This acupressure point helps us establish healthy boundaries without over-deflecting. It is located on the back of the wrist three fingers above the wrist crease

2. Healing Past Hurts and Creating Space:

To heal from past relationship pain and create space for new love. Place your flat hand on CV12, located on the midline of the abdomen. This acupressure point helps heal emotional hurt and pain stored in the yellow court or solar plexus in Ayurvedic Chakra system.

3. Opening Up to Love:

To open ourselves up to love, we can target specific acupressure points associated with the Heart meridian. Two key points to focus on are Heart 4 (Spirit Hall) and Heart 7 (Spirit Gate).

- Heart 4: Situated in the webbing between the ring finger and little finger on the palm side of the hand, this acupoint is associated with emotional healing. Apply gentle pressure to this point while taking slow, deep breaths to release past hurts and allow for new love to enter.

- Heart 7: Located on the inner wrist, on the little finger side along the wrist crease, this acupoint is believed to calm the mind, release emotional stress, and promote openness and receptivity to love. Gently massage this point in a circular motion for a few minutes daily to enhance your emotional well-being.

Acupressure can be a powerful tool for healing emotional wounds and opening ourselves up to love. By targeting specific acupressure points along the Heart, Triple Warmer, and Pericardium meridians, we can support emotional healing, establish healthy boundaries, and create space for new relationships to flourish.
