The right and left sides of your body correspond to different energies. If one side of your body is weaker than the other, consider the following attributes associated with the different sides and reflect on the questions below to gain insight on what might be causing your imbalance.
The Right Side – Yang
The right side of the body is the masculine or yang side of the body. It is action-oriented, competitive, aggressive, controlling and concerned with moving forward. It is also the side of the body that is associated with giving rather than receiving. In addition, your energetic fields on the right hand side carry the energy of events that have occurred in your past.
If the right side of your body is weak, ask yourself the following questions:
(1) In what ways are you not aggressive enough?
(2) In what ways are you receiving too much and not giving enough?
(3) Do you feel that there are any events from your past that might be contributing to any issues you might have on a mental, emotional or physical level?
The Left Side – Yin
The left side of your body is the feminine or yin side of the body. It is passive, allowing, and accepting of what is. Your energetic fields on the left hand side carry the energy of your projections (such as your worries, concerns or goals) for the future.
If the left side of your body is weak, ask yourself the following questions:
(1) In what ways are you not willing to surrender control over certain situations in your life?
(2) In what ways are you giving too much and not receiving enough?
(3) In what way might your perception of your future be contributing to any issues you might have on a mental, emotional or physical level?
Tips to Balance Your Yin-Yang Energies
(1) Get an alternative healing treatment such as acupuncture, reflexology or energy healing. With respect to the latter, a chakra clearing/balancing treatment can be particularly helpful.
(2) Engage in a daily meditation practice to process unconscious or conscious emotions such as stress, which might be affecting your yin-yang balance.
(3) Engage in exercises to strengthen the weaker side of your body. Yoga is great for balancing both sides.
(4) Journal and reflect upon what circumstances or events in your life might be causing you to feel imbalanced. Then decide what action you need to take to overcome those circumstances.
These simple tips can assist you in restoring your body, mind and spirit to a state of balance and harmony.
