Qi and Blood are like Twin Brothers

Qi and Blood are like twin brothers. This intimate relationship makes them both irreplaceable to each other, mutually depend on, support, restrict, and complement each other. And this mutual relationship is just like the relationship between:

Bones and Muscles
Head and Feet
Man and Woman
Water and Fire
Current and Voltage
Electricity and Magnetism
Odd and Even
Core and Surface
Sun and Moon
Day and Night
Time and Space

Blood is easy for us to understand from the modern scientific point of view. It represents the body fluid circulation systems. It stands for the materialized life-supplies the human body gets from nature. How to understand Qi? It is the invisible energy on the human body. It resides in the invisible spaces inside the human body, which Traditional Chinese Medicine calls the meridians.

Let us use some vivid metaphors to further understand what is this Qi-and-Blood:

  • If a river is like the Blood, the hydropower it carries is the Qi and the riverbed is the “space of its meridian”
  • If a current is like the Blood, the electricity it carries is the Qi; and the electric circuit is the “space of its meridian”
  • If a tree is like the Blood, the green energy is sent out is the Qi; and the branches and leaves are the “space of its meridian”
  • If a piece of music is like the Blood, the happiness it brings is the Qi; and the voice and melody are the “space of its meridian”
  • If a business is like the Blood, the positive social value it generates is the Qi; and the people, office, and the business process are the “space of its meridian”
  • If the wind is like the Blood, the air energy it carries is the Qi; and the air space is the “space of its meridian”
  • If a fire is like the Blood, the heat and light it sends out is the Qi; the flame and the moving air are the “space of its meridian”
  • If the underground oil is like the Blood, the petroleum energy it holds is the Qi; the underground space is the “space of its meridian”
  • If the wifi signal is like the Blood, the e-intelligence it enables is the Qi; the electromagnetic wave is the “space of its meridian”
  • If a network online game is like the Blood, the entertainment and the advantage/disadvantage it brings is the Qi; the internet is the “space of its meridian”
  • If a fraud business trap is like the Blood, the harms it sends out is the Qi; the society and environment it resides in is the “space of its meridian”
  • If a war is the Blood, the damage or refreshment it brings is the Qi; business, economy, technology, or cities, countries, regions, even the whole world is the “space of its meridian”

Every people and everything has its own Qi and Blood. The invisible Qi energy can be good, uprising, warm, positive Yang Qi, or bad, downward, cold, and negative Yin Qi. And this Qi energy resides in the materialized human body or in a materialized external world.

The human body’s condition is strongly reflected in its fluid circulation systems. As, the human body is 70% of water, which is exactly the same as that of our Mother Earth, whose energy pattern of Qi and Blood determines human’s energy pattern.

A balanced Qi and Blood system indicates a balanced body and mind, a balanced life, as well as a balanced Yin and Yang in a human life.
