Spring into Shape; APRIL 2013 NEWSLETTER

If you are reading this you are taking steps to improve your well-being. Congratulations! This month we focus on clearing and cleaning. Spring into Shape means starting a new routine; making time for yourself, family, & friends; work less–play more.

Spring time according to Chinese Medicine:
This is the time when the Liver is most active. Just like flowers are blossoming so is the Liver working to detoxify from the past year. Add berries to your diet. It is not by accident that nature produces berries at this time of year. Berries are know to aide in detoxification. Avoid being exposed to too much wind. At this time, the Liver is more susceptible to wind, which is the driving force for all disease. Wind is consider one of the “six evils.”  The Liver stores the negative emotions of anger, frustration, and rage.  The positive virtues of kindness and compassion.  Take an extra moment to do something nice for the people you love or a complete stranger.
Spring is a time for birth! 

This Spring has an incredibly evolutionary component. We are in the midst of powerful forces that are asking us to be conscious of how our choices and actions affect others. If you pay attention you will be able to see the big picture, accessing the subtle realms for guidance. This will help you to see where you can transform disempowering beliefs about yourself and the world at large. It is a time to choose your battles wisely, and to allow the Sacred Feminine and Masculine to show you a more peaceful way to proceed through your life. When we work with these archetypal energies they teach us how to experience more balance in our work.

 

Dedicated to increasing the health awareness of all.
