The Herbs in Pearl Shen

 

Duanwood Reishi Mushroom

 

Over two thousand years ago, Shen Nong said of Reishi Mushroom: “Its atmospheric energy is neutral, it has no toxicity, it is good for the Qi (functional activities) of the heart including mental activities, it tonifies the Spleen, increases wisdom, improves memory so that you won’t forget, long-term consumption will lighten your body, you will never become old, it lengthens years, it has spiritual power, and it develops Shen so that you become a “spirit-being” like the immortals.”

 

In the 16th Century pharmacopoeia Ben Cao Gang Mu, which contains hundreds of natural herbs the Chinese have used for thousands of years, compiler Li Shi Zhen described the uses of Reishi: "It benefits the life energy, or Qi of the heart, supporting the natural energy and freedom of movement of the chest. It increases intellectual capacity and banishes forgetfulness. Taken over a long period of time, agility of the body will not cease, and the years are lengthened to those of the Immortals."

 

Ganoderma was particularly revered by the followers of the Taoist tradition as the "Elixir of Immortality" and as the "Herb of Spiritual Potency." Taoists have continuously claimed that Reishi promotes calmness, centeredness, balance, inner awareness and inner strength. They have used it to improve meditative practices and to protect the body, mind and spirit so that the adept could attain both a long and healthy life and spiritual "immortality" (the Chinese Taoist term for enlightenment, or ultimate spiritual realization). 

 

Reishi is a superb anti-stress herb. Throughout history it has been used to bring balance into the lives of people who needed help in this department, and that means most everyone. Deep in antiquity, "The Herb of Spiritual Potency" was routinely used by mountain hermits, monks, Taoist adepts and spiritual seekers throughout Asia because it was believed to help calm the mind, ease tension, support the nerves, memory, concentration, focus, will power and, as a result, help build wisdom. The people of Asia have never lost their faith in Reishi. They believe more than ever in Reishi's power to improve the quality of life by supporting the inner life of a human being.

 

It is the profound ability of Reishi to support one's life on every plane that makes it so miraculous. Reishi is indeed calming and centering. Everyone who takes Reishi notices the peacefulness that seems to accompany its use. And Reishi's benefits are cumulative, gradually supporting the nerve functions and actually changing how we perceive life. 

 

Micro-Ground Pearl Powder

 

For centuries, Chinese texts have credited ground Pearl Powder with the ability to relieve uneasiness of the heart and mind. This ability to stabilize uneven emotions is known as Shen stabilization. Ground Pearl Powder is a profound Shen stabilizer. It is among the elite substances of this type known. Micro-ground Pearl Powder (“levigated”) can relieve uneasiness, nervousness, anxiety and tension associated with occasional stress. Consistent use helps a person maintain their energy and vitality. It is an ideal Shen tonic.

 

Polygonatum Sibericum Root

 

Polygonatum is believed to be rejuvenating to the mind. It replenishes energy that has been drained due to overwork, over-thinking and stress.

 

Albizia Flower

 

Albizia Flower is a wonderful Shen tonic. The flower of this exotic tree is especially famous among the Chinese for use when one is experiencing occasional emotional problems such as a broken heart and the experience of loss. The flower of Albizia is calming and improves mood. It helps with anxiety, occasional insomnia, irritability, anger, forgetfulness, worry, etc. It is commonly used for any emotional upsets. It has a wonderful Shen lifting (mood supporting) ability. It is one of the best herbs to use for people who are mildly depressed (if you are seriously depressed, see a physician) or angry. (Severe chronic depression and despondence are medical conditions that require medical attention). 

 

Spirit Poria

 

Spirit Poria is a very good Shen tonic herb. It is the central part of a mushroom that grows on the roots of aging pine trees. It was used by Taoists and has been held in the highest esteem by spiritual seekers. It is believed by the Taoists to have a very special power to lift Shen and to help develop the Spirit. It is one of the major Shen tonic and Shen stabilizing substances and has acquired a special reputation for it overall emotional balancing benefits. By stabilizing the emotions, the true mind is able to develop fully, unhindered by emotional distraction.

 

Zizyphus Seed

 

Zizyphus Seed is one of the most commonly used herbs in Chinese herbalism. Being neutral in energy and mild in nature, it is the most commonly used herb in sedative formulas designed to help relax the mind. It is categorized as a heart-blood tonic in traditional Chinese health theory, therefore it is calming the heart, which is the Seat of Shen and which determines our emotional stability.
