Summer! The season of heat, of Heart. We can choose to make it a season of healing, too. As we observe the world around us we see growth, green, flowers with flashes and subtleties of colors, vegetables ripening, fruits expanding, early mornings, long evenings, fireflies, and, yes mosquitoes, hurricanes, tornadoes and so much more. We want cool foods, cold drinks, showers to wash off the sweat, spirited days, calm evenings, cool pillows on which to rest our heads with their thoughts and feelings. And we want LOVE and JOY- emotions of our Hearts. Feelings our souls so desperately need to maintain their lift, their fullness, their lightness. Summer is the season of the Heart Organ System - our hearts and our stomachs! We digest foods and emotions! It is the season of our Pericaridiums - the Heart Protector, and of the Triple Warmer, the three energy centers in our bodies. Our Heart Organ Systems need joy, patience, playfulness, laughter, peace, and love. They need to release and not take hold of hatred, impatience, hastiness, lack of playfulness, fun, and joy...lack of love . Put your hands over the center of your chest, your Heart Space. Feel the power and the gentleness of your own heartbeat. Capture it....let its energy protect you, warm you. Feel it captured by your breath...let them give you strength and courage to make it through the difficult days, the difficult passages in lfe. Nurture your Heart Organ System. Flowers need rain and sunshine, warm days and cool nights. What do you need? Go within... To your Heart. To your Heart Protector. Wrap your arms around your shoulders. You are power. You are capable of growing and changing. You are capable of being flexible and resilient. Your essence, your center is LOVE. We as humans can adapt. Flowers cannot make choices. Often flowers only grow in the almost perfect environment for them. Move them, provide less light, too much sun, provide less water falling on their soil, or hot days to dry out their tissues, they wither, rot, and die. We, as humans, can adapt. With the right resourceand supports, we can flourish. We can shake off our stresses, we can pause and give space and ponder. We can respond, in place of react. We can love ourselves and expand to give and accept love. (This is often easier said than done. Traumas, neglect, abuse, make flourishing so incredibly difficult. Still the Heart, our essence, our centers yearn for lift, lightness, and fullness of life. We can choose to persevere - the energy of Spring which leads to the energy of Summer. Again, not easy. Yet, worth it. I think of kids with no choices! And adults who are formed and shaped through traumas. Who teach us to choose life and living, light and fullness. ) Hot days are long days. And this rambling is getting like a hot day...when will it close.?..when will the coolness of the evening take over? As they length of daylignt shortens, use your awareness to feel its subtleness. Notice and feel the outside of you,. Notice and feel the inside of you. Notice YOUR HEALING POWER within. As outside of us, so inside of us. So inside of us, we can help to create the outside of us. Summer is the season of LOVE, joy, patience, playfulness, peace.... It is my hope that we, as individuals, communities, and nations with lives and a world experiencing so much hatred, brutal egos, and turmoil, that we can choose love and peace within ourselves. That we can release hardened egos, and we can choose to take the time to bring love, joy, laughter, patience, and playfulness to ourselves and to others. To all others. And, as is a feature of Qi Gong, with no judgement. With a desire for understanding, with the ability to listen and respond, with respect and with love. Happy and Healthy Summer! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Think Seasons...of the year...of our lives... We are part of Nature. Thousands of years ago, before MRIs, PET scans, blood work, etc., Nature provided observations, questions, challenges, and answers. We're so lucky now, to have "Western Medicine" and "Eastern Medicine" to inform and guide us. Join me in classes to learn more about how we can protect and nourish our Heart Organ System each day through: - Focused, deep gentle breathing - Flowing movements to keep our Qi moving within and between all the Organ Systems - Healing sounds and colors (my personal favorite!) - and more!
Please join me: In 45 healing minutes (or less or more), thru focused breathing, gentle, easy to learn movements, and healing sounds and colors we'll be moving and cultivating our Qi - our life force energy. We can learn to shake off our stress, cultivate awareness, and transform fears into trust, a sense of calmness, and the ability to be centered in the present moment with open minds and open hearts. Please know - Qi Gong can be done seated, standing, in wheelchairs or even on a bed. All movements can be modified, adjusted or even imagined to meet your needs. Please consult with your medical professional, if you have any concerns at all. ---------------------If you are interested in bringing the many benefits of Qi Gong and/or Health Coaching to your friends, families, and participants and staff in a non-profit or for-profit organization, please contact me. From the bottom of my heart, I believe that the easy breathing techniques, simple "movements" , and peace-filled mindset of Qi Gong can help support the health, healing, and well-being of each of us, according to our individual needs. I look forward to sharing Healing Minutes with you!
