Organs And Emotions Chart – How Your Body And Mind Are Connected

There’s no denying the unbreakable bond between the body and mind. And yet, many people overlook this connection when it comes to their emotions.

Everything you feel translates to a certain process in the body. This holistic approach is very popular in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), which gave us the first organs and emotions chart.

While the traditional organs and emotions chart is now thousands of years old, many of today’s researchers have proven that certain parts of your body are connected to your emotions.

Let’s take a look at how this process works.

How Are Organs And Emotions Connected?

Emotions are body wisdom.

-Jon Butcher

Our emotions don’t just feel that dwell within the mind. Our emotions literally inhabit our bodies.

And specific emotions connect to specific parts of the body.

Lungs, Skin, Large Intestine – Grief, Courage

According to traditional medical systems, grief and sadness are felt in the lungs, skin, and large intestine.

Sadness depletes your body of energy and can cause chest pain, tightness, and shortness of breath. In TCM, lungs are in charge of controlling your pores, which is why skin issues like dryness and sensitivity can be the result of lung problems.

But positive emotions, like pride and courage, are also felt in the lungs.

Kidney, Ears, Bladder – Fear

These organs are the first to respond to fear. Once you feel it, your fight or flight response is triggered, and adrenaline floods your body.

The adrenal glands are responsible for dealing with this physiological response.

And have you ever felt like you’re going to empty your bladder when in a state of severe fear? This is because fear relaxes the bladder.

Liver, Eyes, Gallbladder – Anger, Generosity

Feelings of anger and rage affect your liver and travel upwards to your head. This can cause migraines, dizziness, lack of clarity, and many other strong bodily sensations.

Melancholic emotions like worry or pensiveness also impact your liver but in a different way. These are often less powerful, but they last longer and can cause digestive issues and problems with your gallbladder.

The main positive emotions associated with these organs are generosity and kindness. This is why people say you can often tell that someone is a kind person by simply looking into their eyes.

Heart, Small Intestine – Impatience, Love

As one of the vital organs in your body, your heart reacts to strong emotions of hate or impatience. These emotions can lead to heart palpitations, brain fog, insomnia, and many other unpleasant sensations and disorders.

The heart is also responsible for love and happiness. Since the heart is a universal symbol of love, this connection may not come as a surprise.

Spleen, Stomach, Pancreas – Anxiety, Trust

The “gut feeling” that many people believe in is very real. There’s a strong connection between your gut and brain, so it comes as no surprise that it’s affected by strong emotions.

Anxiety is felt in the spleen, stomach, and pancreas. Excessive worry can trigger many digestive issues and negatively impact your overall quality of life.

People with emotional disturbances are more prone to constipation, spastic colon, and irritable bowel syndrome.

But on the flip side, many positive emotions are felt in these organs, including trust, openness, and vulnerability. 

Why Is This Important?

Understanding that your body and mind are connected is crucial to your overall health. By making positive lifestyle changes like a healthy diet, meditation, and regular exercise, you support both your physical and mental health.
