I wish you a warm and wonderful holiday spent with good friends, family, fine food, and with lots of time for rest and recharging!
The winter solstice is upon us, and we are in the darkest days of the year. But, as is cyclical nature, at the culmination and transition of the cycle, we can reap the most powerful healing and personal transformation. The challenge of balancing the pull to meet the needs of the holidays and to withdraw to nurture our own spirit is here. Even 10 minutes a day spent in contemplation can provide you with the inner resources to weather the demands of the outside world. Soon the nights will become noticeably shorter as the days begin to lengthen and spring approaches. It is most natural to want to sleep more, to retreat into our individual nests and to take time to nurture our spirits during this time.
The Path to Health Begins with Essential Energy
Today the idea of vibrational frequency is widely bandied about and people talk about shifting their energy and improving their frequency. What does this mean and how does it relate to Saints, Angels, Spirit and Immortals?
The core principle is that all things are energy. The energy in each thing vibrates at different rates, with different amplitudes. Amplitude is like the size of waves at the beach: some things/people have 6 foot waves crashing on the beach and some are gentle ripples lapping at the shore. For our purposes I'm going to call this combination of rate and amplitude "frequency". (The scientists amongst my readers please forgive me for taking liberty with scientific terms!)
Difference in frequency is what differentiates one thing from another: cat from dog, mountain from lake, human from frog.
Keep Your Body Moving
In winter we run the risk of letting stagnation settle into the body. It is important to keep moving, and to practice regularly. Qigong, Taiji and Yoga are all great for keeping our Qi moving and circulating. We can take advantage of this season to consolidate and build our internal energy. A daily practice of 30 minutes to an hour keeps the body healthy and warm. Hard Qigong and Bone Stretching Qigong support the kidney health and internal fire.Tai Chi twists the low back and sparks the fire of the Kidneys. Yoga stretches the tendons and ligaments keeping the wood phase happy and functioning. (especially important during this season of drinking spirits and eating rich foods.)
This is a great season to establish your personal practice. I encourage you to make the commitment to nurture your health and well-being!
