SUMMER has arrived and with it an abundance of expansive expression. There is an explosion of lush trees, flowers and fruit blossoming and the heat of the summer sun is coming into its full expression.
While spring was a period of renewal and rebirth, summer is a time for expansion, growth, creativity and whole-hearted action; a manifestation of all that we have been cultivating through spring.
The transition from spring to summer is fully marked by the Summer Solstice on December 21st. Summer is the most Masculine of the seasons. It is a perfect time to grow in our spiritual awareness, as we find joy in the hot days and warm nights of summer. Imbalances that may occur at this time include a lack of joy, depression or an excess of joy – mania, heart palpitations, agitation, nervousness, excess body heat, profuse sweating, heartburn, constipation and insomnia may be experienced.
The heart Chakra is in the centre of the Chakra system and integrates opposites in the psyche – mind and body, male and female, our persona and our true self.
Summer is an ideal time to be sensitive and find more expression, which brings true fulfillment and equilibrium between the heart and mind. Expressing enthusiasm and warmth into human relationships over the festive season, with meaningful relationships and conscious awareness is our reward.
Eating cooling, soothing seasonal plant-based foods that clear heat such as avocado, lemon, kiwifruit, strawberries, watermelon, asparagus, alfalfa, celery, cucumber, peppermint, plenty of green salads, kale, spinach. Stay hydrated with pure filtered or spring water and cooling coconut water, which helps restore essential electrolytes, vitamins and minerals.
