Author side note – if you are a Game of Thrones fan, you might want to check out Amy’s Croatia Post (here). I finally watched GOT and it was quite the experience (and yes, I fast forwarded some of the rough scenes). Favorite line from GOT – when Arya responded, “Not today.”

The meridians are composed of 12 (+2) pathways that carry energy in, through, and out of the body. Each meridian serves different organs and systems.
