What Is Good For You? – The Small Intestine Meridian

    The Small Intestine Meridian Helps Determine What Is Good For You

    The small intestine is responsible for the absorption of the nutrients from the foods we eat. Physiologically speaking, the small intestine receives partially digested food from the stomach and processes it further. Its primary function is to absorb what is good for us and send what is left on to the large intestine for elimination.

    Like the physical body, the small intestine meridian is called the Controller of Assimilation or the Master of Reception. It is responsible for separating the pure from the impure, where it evaluates what is useful and good for us and eliminating what is not.

    In this role, it aids our decision making process, where it helps us to prioritize our needs and helps us to make decisions based upon what really matters or is important to us. At times, we are so surrounded by negative choices and energies that we are not in agreement with, the small intestine meridian will shut down.  This can impact our bodies ability to absorb the nutrition it needs to support and feed the body.

    Not surprisingly, the small intestine meridian is also associated with our ability to identify our needs and allows us or opens us up to receiving. In this role, it also supports the gallbladder meridian’s ability to make clear and insightful decisions, where it provides the gallbladder with good, heartfelt choices to select from.  These choices our our choices, not the choices of someone else.

    How We Experience The Small Intestine Meridian

    Balanced – When the small intestine meridian is balanced, we experience mental clarity, discernment, and the ability to distinguish relevant issues with clarity.

    Physical Imbalances – Physically, dysfunction of the small intestine meridian can manifest as either dry feces and excessive urination or diarrhea and little urination, abdominal pain, intestinal rumblings, digestive problems, or hearing difficulties (including tinnitus).

    Emotional Imbalances – Emotionally, we can have excessive judgment or end up feeling unsure about our ability to evaluate things. It can also manifest as the rejection of possibilities or indiscriminate acceptance, an inability to commit to a course of action, an inability to nourish ourselves, a lack of discernment or discrimination, critical or cynical thinking, naivety, or gullibility.
