What if Traditional Wisdom Held the Key to Unlocking Hidden Superpowers?

Can we gain renewed insight from ancient systems and discover tools to lead a balanced life of joy and authenticity today?

Can we become sovereigns of our own selves?

Yes! And Reign: A Guide to Ruling Your Inner Kingdom of Self with Grace, Power, and Authenticity is your manual to do just that!

Lines of Energy

After studying nature for centuries, the ancient Chinese identified twelve meridian lines of energy present in every person. These course through each of us in a continuous cycle and are the basis of acupuncture treatment.

These meridians can become imbalanced due to lifestyle choices, stress, and trauma, causing them to clash and leaving us living in conflicting dysfunctional patterns.

What if you could balance these energies and harness them to deliberately reshape and transform your life?

What if you could turn them into your own unique superpowers?

You can!

The Five Elemental Realms

Traditional Chinese Medicine clinician and author Mary Krygiel acts as your cartographer as you map these five elemental realms:

The Fire Realm

The Earth Realm

The Metal Realm

The Water Realm

The Wood Realm

As you investigate, imagine yourself as a medieval explorer. The journey through these realms is a metaphor we can use to navigate the twelve energies and find our way to living a balanced, empowered life.

After your journey, you'll understand the pitfalls you may encounter in modern society when you emphasize one elemental realm over the others.

And you’ll be equipped to start activating your own hidden capabilities today.

Are you ready to begin your journey to the five realms and skillfully harness your inner superpowers?

About the Author:

Mary Krygiel earned a master's degree in acupuncture from the Maryland University of Integrative Health in 2011. As a board-certified, licensed practitioner, classically trained in the Law of Five Elements, she's treated many patients in clinical, hospital, and community settings. Through this, she observed that a patient's outward presentation and manner of being contributed to their symptoms.

And as a mother to two young adults, she witnessed firsthand the increasing pressure to conform to an overly friendly and excessively engaging presentation on social media. This self-presentation is inauthentic and minimizes our true powers, causing insecurity and self-doubt over time.

Mary came to realize that people's actions, tone, and manner correspond directly with the ancient Chinese understanding of the twelve meridians of energy. These twelve superpowers of humanity, when understood and used effectively, can create greater ease and less stress in each moment of our lives.
