Kidney 7 – Returning Current: Finding Faith in the Darkness

The character liu, meaning stream or current, has embedded in its ancient etymology a picture of a newborn baby upside down with four strands of hair hanging down from its head. This character tells us that this point is related to the moment of crowning during a birth. It brings us the gift of faith in the renewal of life, the awesome thundering of the soul that comes when the baby’s head first emerges from the mysterious darkness of the birth canal.
