On the interdependencies of the five elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine: “Food relies on water and fire. Production relies on metal and wood. Earth gives birth to everything.”.- A Collection of Ancient Works
In Traditional Chinese Medicine connective tissue (including ligaments, tendons, spinal and brain's dura and meningis, carpal tendons, bones, pericardium (connective tissue sac around the heart, the protective layers around muscles and nerves, and more) is associated with Earth elements (stomach and spleen) as well as the mouth, the taste of sweetness and a sense of anxiety. One way to use this information is to do visualization on the color yellow which is also associated with the Earth elements.
While resting quietly place one hand over the stomach (lower ribcage slightly to the left of center) and the other hand on the spleen (left side of the body, deep to the lower rib cage). Focus on your breathing and the color yellow. Imagine all the shades of yellow you can and all the things, clothes, birds, books, etc around you that are yellow.
Another exercise is while you are walking or a passenger in a car, look around and notice everything you see that is yellow.

I am looking for guest blog opportunities and a position as poet-in-residence. My current project is writing dictionary poems using words in different languages for the English word "peace." You can read some of my poems on Poemhunter .
As poet-in-residence I would write poems on different words in different languages and broadcast them throughout the social media blogosphere. Each poem would link back to your site where the word or language appeared.
I would expect some sort of stipend and a six month to one year placement. Please contact me for details if your organization is interested in having a poet-in-residence to help get your message out. Nervewhisperer@gmial.com
