“Black In The Face” is a term used to describe the energy distribution visible in the face of a human being. The ideal human face should have an even distribution of energy across it’s entire surface. An even distribution of energy across the face would be associated with both good health and a balanced body.
Very generally, there are two causes that will produce the darkening of the face that is called “Black In The Face”. Any type of permanent or temporary health problem will cause a darkening of the face, and both temporary or permanent tightening of the head and body will cause a darkening of the face. The part of the face that becomes dark is directly related to the health problem affecting the individual, or directly related to the part of the head and body that has become tight.
The example picture for this blog entry is shown below.
The woman has “Right Side Black In The Face”. The line in the next picture approximately follows the boundary between the well lit left side of the face and the darker right side of the face.
The “Right Side Black In The Face” is caused by contraction and shrinkage of the right side of her body. There are many observations in the example picture that support that conclusion. The contraction of the right side of the body has given the right arm an atrophied appearance.
In contrast, the left arm looks full and fleshy.
The shrinkage of the right arm also makes the arc of the right shoulder look tighter and smaller,
than the arc of the left shoulder.
The contraction of the right side of the body pulls the entire body, including the head over to the right.
The shrinkage of the right side of the head has given the right eye a very dark, almost disappearing look to it.
And finally, the right side shrinkage of the head has given the woman the urge to stick her tongue up towards the right side of her head instead of the middle of her head.
The tongue looks like it is reaching up towards the right side of the head in the picture, but that is only because the tongue is only that long. If the tongue were long enough, the bodily changes that are motivating it’s behavior would push it all the way up and into the right eye as demonstrated next.
That is actually another way to envision why the right eye is closed and dark. The right eye is closed and dark because the tongue is poking into it and making it wince in pain.
