The hanging bells shown here in the third picture were used to symbolize the function of the acupuncture point, Gall Bladder 39, "Hanging Bells." These bells and the ritual action they refer to are related to the summoning of pleasure that is achieved by the proper distribution of the Reserve Qi stored within the Kidneys. Since the Gall Bladder Meridian functions, in part, by distributing this Qi, the Gall Bladder Meridian (and especially this particular acupuncture point) relates to the creation of pleasure as an important function of human life.
While this activity is normally considered a function of the Pericardium Meridian, here it is activated by the Gall Bladder Meridian because of the Gall Bladder's function of distributing the Reserve Qi from the Kidneys. Reserve Qi is associated with one's inner potential granted to one at birth from Heaven, or the Creative Source. When this potential meets the external world through the assertion of one's proper boundaries (the Gall Bladder function), courage (the function of both the Kidney and Gall Bladder) is transformed into pleasure of the deepest level of human fulfillment.
