Dancing from one thing to the next.
Mow the yard. Get my walk in. Clean the kitchen. Write a blog post. Weed-wack around the trees. Promote the Women’s Awakening Festival. Drink some water. Teach a yoga class. Clean the bathroom. Did I eat lunch? Sneak in a few pages of reading. Hop on the kayak. Return client texts. Sneak in dinner. Return client emails. Ahhh…I could go on and on. For this redhead (and I am sure you too) are hard to slow down during the season of fire.
Ayurvedically speaking, the fire within is Pitta, and we are in the midst of Pitta Potent season.
The more we engage with the fire element of the sun and all his grandfather power, the more we feed our spirit to churn with masculinity. We know the radiant sun is awe inspiring and so yummy with all his Vitamin D & mood boosting qualities, yet at the same time we need to respect the yin to the sun’s yang as we find the shade, rest our mind & body and find stillness to harmonize the action. Taking moments to be still & listen to our inner knowing. For if we don’t, the anger & frustration can boil and turn your inner zen into a bearcat (i.e., opposite of serenity).
Jamie Sams nails it: Contentment comes from the inner serenity that permeates the whole person. the Ancestors spoke of this state of grace and called it Walking in Beauty.
Yes. I want to Walk in Beauty. Are you with me?
Your soul is!
Your soul is waiting for you to tap into the sweetness of contentment and in that state she will show you the true light of the sun.
By all means, relish in the masculine energy that is pumped up during the fun summer season, but remember ~ in order to embody true health, according to Ayurveda and all eastern medicines I’ve ever stumbled upon, we need to find the Sattva the sweet Balance of the Yin & the Yang.
Burn on my passionate friend…but also walk in the beauty of contentment.
This redhead is signing off for now…oh yes…the fire within is real for me on a daily basis and so I shall now cool off under the umbrella of my brother & sisters nearby; those Standing in Beauty we call trees.
Love & lots of sparkly light,
International yoga instructor, Shamanic Practitioner, life coach, and more!
