Summertime, annual height of heat, fire energies drawing upward and expanding. Our subtle energies respond and we enjoy the results of our responsiveness or we experience suffering. In Summer I often notice in myself and my clients patterns of migraines and other headaches, foggy thinking, anxiety, and a sense of a call for action coming from too many directions at once. Our elemental fire rises just as physical heat rises, which can direct a focus of excess energy to the upper body and the head.
There is deep relief offered by seeking the balance of quiet grounding. Releasing energies caught in the top of the head by doing the Crown Pull is like opening the escape valve for steam in the pressure cooker of the body. Standing on cool wet grass in the shade in the early morning draws energies downward into a safe sense of grounding. Holding the Hook-Up points on the body for several minutes establishes stability and groundedness.
Being well grounded in the physical body begins to relieve anxiety and clear the thinking. Grounding attunes us to our deep wellspring of elemental water below our feet, bringing a natural balance to our fire element. Water and Fire in elemental balance means that our Fire element does not become uncomfortably excessive.
I love this image I took of a fig tree at Leu Gardens on Sunday. It shows such a lovely reaching gesture towards the quiet earth and towards the restorative waters beneath the surface.
You are a wonderfully made and unique individual, with energy patterns and a history different from everyone else on the planet. It is my privilege to communicate with the subtle energies that make up an individual’s condition, and to bring my expertise to bear in helping each client restore the effectiveness of their inner healing forces, and move into greater wellness. My work is effective by phone, Skype or in person. I look forward to serving you.
