“Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.
Rumi, Persian Poet and Mystic 1207-1273 AD
Air organs and the systems and parts of the body where they are located govern all of the internal communication systems within your body, especially your nervous system. These internal communications systems are what give rise to your sense of touching and being touched, as well as the movement of energy flowing within and around you.
Power of Air
The central location of your air organs is in the chest region and just behind the area of your heart. The subtle energies of Love and Grace are rooted in this area of your body. Your ability to set an intention and initiate those intentions is born here. This is your power to move an impulse, or idea, from a seed potential to an actual event occurring in the world.
You begin to access the more super sensible realms of existence in this area of your body. You begin to have the experience of yourself as a transcendent being beyond the material.
Your sixth sense or intuitive sensibilities are accessible to you from here. The power of prayer is activated in this part of your body. You move beyond the “law of karma,” action and reaction, to the “law of grace.”
The power of air gives rise to your experience of compassion, empathy and generosity. The nature and primary function of your air organs is to connect you with the kinetic experience of touching and being touched which gives rise to proprioception and the sense that you are located in space and time. It helps you to orient to space and time and gives rise to a sense of history.
When your air organs are balanced and healthy you can experience the feeling state of joy for life. You experience joy spontaneously for no reason at all.
The experience of feeling abundant and prosperous are constant and for no apparent reason.

You may experience a common feeling of emotional stagnation. Life can feel boring and unfulfilling. There is a lack of empathy, caring and sharing with your fellow human beings. Lack of appreciation is your common state. You focus on grievances and bitterness towards life for having cheated you, or let you down in some unforgivable way.
Stagnation or blockage in any of your air organs, systems, or parts can result in your loss of feeling of caring and compassion towards yourself, or others, including the natural world.
