A way of dealing with stress is to perform the Six Healing Sound Everything is energy. When Taoists confront negative emotional energy, rather than seeking to destroy it or to dump it out, they use techniques to transform negative, sick energy into positive, loving, healing energy. The primary methods employed are The Inner Smile 1 and the Six Healing Sounds.
Negative emotions are stored in the body`s organs. Over time, the accumulation of the negativity erodes the organs health and effects the persons disposition.
The Six Healing Sounds work to transform the negative energy stored in the organs and to transform them into healing light. That works better than holding onto negativity or dumping it out onto someone else because such emotional venting only serves to pass an emotional virus onto another and, via the law of karma, eventually that same negativity will be revisited upon the person who sent it out in the first place.
When negative emotional energy is transmuted, it can then be circulated through the Microcosmic Orbit to send healing energy throughout the body.

THE FIVE ELEMENTS
In Asian culture, there is a strong focus placed on balance. As energy flows in one direction, it ebbs in another. The interactions and relationships within the universe are only harmonious when kept in balance. The Five Elements Theory, is a Chinese philosophy that is used as the basis for everything from medicine, , martials arts and more. The five elements -- earth, metal, wood, fire, and water -- are believed to be the fundamental roots of the universe, between which interactions occur.
Each Chinese element has its own characteristics and associations and each plays a crucial role in the balance of the universe. No element is stronger or more important than another, and each has its own defined strengths and weaknesses. According to the Five Elements Theory, all things arise from and return to the universe and are composed of these elements. This is why understanding our own connection to them is important.
UNDERSTANDING THE CHINESE ELEMENTS CYCLE
Each of the five elements stands independently, however, each influence and molds the others. The world's interactions are determined by the Chinese elements creating and destroying each other. The process of creation promotes development, while the process of destruction restrains this development. The two are complimentary processes and create a harmonious stillness when balanced.
