Representing autumn and the metal element this ChiBall represents metals cool and reflective nature. Silver is the meal of the Moon, the feminine and represents the unconscious. Silver is a precious metal that is considered by many to have esoteric implications. It stimulates creativity and fertility. Grey/silver is a combination of White and Black and has the unusual distinction of being a combination of all colours but also the absence of colour at the same time. Grey/silver indicates that balance must be achieved when two opposing viewpoints are at play, to influence an outcome either positively or negatively. Silver is the perfect choice when Yin and Yang are out of balance. Eucalyptus oil can restore balance during times of emotional overload. It is stimulating and refreshing and can help overcome sluggishness. It also opens the nasal passages and lungs, which increases oxygen intake, aiding regeneration of body tissues and increasing concentration and mental clarity. The metal element is associated with the lungs and large intestine (meridian and organ). When the lungs are healthy the voice sounds clear, strong and travels a great distance like a large, metal bell. In TCM the Organ/meridian partnerships function not only on a physical level but also in an emotional and spiritual way. The lungs are the only yin organ that connects directly to the outside world and therefore influence our ability to connect and communicate. When function is impaired we lack mental clarity, feel isolated, disconnected and unable to connect. The lungs house our corporeal soul (Po). Po is our physical or animal soul and dies with us unlike our Shen, which is believed to survive our physical death. Although the partnership of the lungs and large intestine seem an odd one, they are essential to each other and rely on each other to perform their functions. The lungs are responsible taking in what we need and large intestine lets go of what we don’t. Like the balance of Yin and Yang, if one becomes impaired it affects the other. Grief and sadness directly affect the lungs and can cause internal disharmony which can lead to illness and disease. The combination of the colour and aroma of the Silver ChiBall is prescribed to assist in the healing of lung/large intestine emotional and physical disharmony.
