Summer Transition Energies & How To Support Your Body

The season of late summer is upon us. Late evening light wanes and is paired with cool mornings. The crisp smells of the coming autumn are on the tips of our nose buds. With the season transition towards fall we may find ourselves in or out of balance with the element of Earth that governs the time between seasons.

For years I loathed the changing of the season and found it difficult to adjust to the shorter days and the heat leaving. I still love summer and am saddened that I must let it go, but as I become healthier in my body by getting the rest I need, eating whole foods and nourishing myself with a loving community, I find this time easier. My Earth element was out of balance by my constant overthinking due to the stressful relationships that I attended to. (Remember the element of Earth’s emotion is worry, rumination, overthinking and analyzing). As I have shifted my life into one of thriving, being honest with myself and devoting my life to my mission and purpose, I have continued to feel greater ease as this seasonal shifting time. Are you in balance?

The Earth element is associated with the organs of the stomach and spleen, so digestion will be highlighted. Are you taking the time to chew and enjoy your meals? Have you attended to eating with the season? We have an abundance of foods available to us that are in season and that can be enjoyed this time of year. Getting all the colors of the rainbow on your plate should come easily.

This season has to do with nourishing ourselves and feeling the abundance in our lives. Are you satisfied? Do you have enough and are you able to share your abundance? If you find yourself feeling resistive to change, are overindulging, overly-ingratiating, forgetful, extremely fatigued, worried, foggy-brained or needy of attention, then you are experiencing Earth out of balance. An inability to nourish the body or mind is an imbalance as well. Physically, the body can be affected by nervousness, hurried eating, and our food will not be assimilated if this is the case. If you are “holding on” to emotions and thoughts, you may experience constipation. An inability to “stomach” the ideas of others or resisting the end of summer may cause indigestion for some.  Muscle issues such as tension (inflexibility), stiffness, edema, loose or flabby skin or muscles and cracking or peeling of the skin also shows a disharmony.

By getting Amma bodywork, you can build on nourishing yourself and have the imbalances shift. Your energy will increase, your digestion will improve and your emotions will feel balanced as a result of a session. Transformation Coaching can help you to thrive and create the life that you are meant to live, in alignment with your highest mission and purpose.

Get things flowing!

Year of the Yin Fire Rooster and You!

The year of the Yin Fire Rooster began a few weeks ago on the New Moon, January 28th. Every year I like to talk about the energies from the changing of the guards with Chinese Astrology. So, let’s have some fun and explore what the rooster is calling in!

The rooster is best known for its greeting to start the day. Its exuberance, diligence, patience, and timeliness are all characteristics that can be found in a rooster year. We also see that the rooster can be boastful and is very confident in its self, and not afraid to honestly call it like it is. Devoting some time to beauty and what we want to see in the greater world as beautiful will be a good place to put attention. The rooster is not only lovingly devoted, but resourceful, hardworking and delights in doing things to the best of its abilities. Roosters are true to their word so you can trust they will be a good friend as well as walk their talk. Taking charge in your life and owning your power will be themes both individually and as a collective. The rooster is a leader, popular, active, and talkative, as well as dressed for success. This year it will behoove us to make planned action, get organized and take risks only if they are calculated. Perseverance will be a helpful energy from our friend the rooster, as this is a fire yin year and the energy can be tumultuous. With the dedicated and observant rooster on hand though, we can expect to solve issues and make great strides if we apply all we learn. They also signify a feminine aspect and we will want to pay more attention to our intuition. Overall, we can expect more predictability with a rooster year, but the fire will make things intense and there will be a lot of action and growth. Get out there and energize your life by owning your beauty and power and you will have an amazing year!

To Great Health & Prosperity!
