Wouldn’t it deeply improve our health is we could press a button to promote natural healing in our bodies?
Guess what…we can!
It has been discovered that this “reset button” lives in your belly button. Yes, the same belly button that nourished you from conception.
The belly button is like an energetic gate to your second brain—the gut. It is directly connected to every organ in the body! Think of it as a line of energy extending from the belly button to the corresponding organ.
There are over 100 million neurons in the gut which link directly to the brain, which is why you get that “gut feeling” or butterflies in your stomach when you’re nervous or excited. The intestines alone hold 60% of the body’s blood. It also produces 90% of the body’s serotonin, the ability to feel happiness and 50% of its dopamine, which helps us experience pleasure and drive.
Stagnant blood and energy in our gut blocks the health of these functions and can lead to an array of adverse effects.
By stimulating your navel, you release energetic tension to not only the widely neglected belly button but your entire abdominal cavity as well through its many energetic and nerve connections to all of your inner organs.
In East Asian Medicine, primary energy lines, or meridians, also run through the abdomen, so when you stimulate your belly button, energetic blockages are released, and your physical body begins to detox.
Science is also now taking an interest in the gut. Through research, they have made similar findings, discovering the gut to be intimately linked to our body's emotional processing.
How empowering, right…AND guess what…it get’s better! All you need to spend is 15 minutes a day to rapidly and profoundly improve your physical and emotional health.
Ilchi Lee, founder of the Sedona Meditation Center and international mind-body expert, discovered that by applying acupressure techniques to the navel, he could detect imbalances, blockages, and tension throughout the body.
Eight general points around the belly button correspond with the different organs and body parts located in that direction and intersect with meridians (energetic highways that carry life force energy). By stimulating these points, you can strengthen your mind-body connection and heal yourself naturally.
Only you can make a choice to heal your body. Imagine how many resources and care you give to the vehicle you drive around in. Remember that your body to is a vehicle so precious that also needs proper care and maintenance. It is so very deserving of your love.
Say with me, “I love my body!!” And allow your choices and action to reflect that statement boldly with committed action.
