Each of us has experienced plenty of colds. The symptoms of these are very well recognized by us. They mainly focus on the head, there is an irony here. The issue that does not have just an anatomic justification but as well a subtle one – the cold refuses to understand a certain situation or experience.
In the moment one should reflect on what happens to us, to learn something and transform, most often the ineptness, the attachment or the pride or the fear that stops us of accepting that we were wrong and realize what to do not to repeat the error again.
The colds usually happen during the cold period of the year – the winter time, especially when wetness is involved as well. While the heat drives us towards interaction and openness to the exterior environment, the cold weather is the moment of interiorizing and resettling in your crib.
Anyhow this is the perfect time to think and receive new teachings and transform yourself inside. The spring time should find one wiser, walking on the evolution scale as a reborn, such as nature wakes up to life.
The affected area has a certain meaning:
-Sometime it is a rhinitis; the nose means the instinctual and emotional perception of the reality, the capacity to smell the situation and to instinctively adapt; these are troubled – the person does not use his full capacity to adapt, the primary instinct that allows him to understand the world and to know it; in the case of the rhinitis this sense is blocked or troubled.
– Some other times it is a pharyngitis; the pharynges is an area of decision making, of crossroad; the direction towards the digestive tract or towards the respiratory tract. It appears at the people that are not able to decide which way to take; hesitate between some attitudes, individualist interpretation and altruist one, affective one.
-Sometimes it is a sinusitis, especially a frontal one, with the sensation of troubled head, an expression of the mental schemas that it does not want to get out of; when something that is not quadrated in its mental pattern, one seems o be refusing to understand.
The predominance of water and earth
These colds appear when the waters are troubled in one’s life – the person was put in difficult situations that he did not manage to accommodate to or has been through some events at the end of which has not succeeded in making a conclusion.
His system of values and his way of thinking were not flexible enough to accommodate at a new circumstance. The reaction is one of withdrawal, such as one does not want to know or hear or see anything.
The thinking is reflected in the state of lethargy. The patient would not want to have any worry, someone else would better solve his problems, and meanwhile he sleeps at the shelter of any transformation. His mind refuses to see the situation clearly, from which one feels his head troubled and sleepy.
The predominance of fire
The excessive fire generates inflammation and fever. These troubles are the consequences of the tension and mental and emotional tensions at a person who is very anchored in his problems and decided to solve them, stubborn, incapable of seeing any alternative solutions. His disease obliges him to take a rest that he did not want to and eventually understand the meaning of the events he has been through.
The predominance of air
Its main characteristic is a sensation of dryness, headaches, ear aches, throat aches and the secretions are missing or are reduces. Such a cold type is the expression of mistrust and hesitation to understand the events, the fear to draw some conclusions and the hesitation to express them.
The disease is a warning and tells us that we trespass the universal harmony. Moreover, it is not actually a punishment that one does not deserve but it is the consequences of our acts and attitudes. It mirrors our defects and reflects our errors.
