Welcome Spring!

by Merry Reasons L.Ac., Acupuncture Denver Staff 

Your heart is full of fertile seeds, waiting to sprout. -Morihei Ueshiba

The seeds that were planted in the fall, which rested and germinated through winter, are now starting to bloom with the outward expression of spring. Winter asked us to go inward and relax, reflect, and rejuvenate.  Now spring asks us to blossom with new beginnings, growth, and transformation. Those seeds planted – ideas, new love, new life – can be awakened in the spring.

Spring welcomes the Wood Energy in Chinese Medicine.  It represents our vision and the desire to manifest our truest self.  Just as a tiny acorn becomes a beautiful oak tree, our Wood energy holds the blueprint for our path – we must open our eyes and heart to it’s foundation, and be flexible in our journey as we continue to grow. This expansive energy gives us confidence, creativity, and direction to follow our dreams.

What have you planted deep within that is ready to blossom?  What areas of your life feel stuck that you want to push through and transform?  Can you breathe into your foundation and trust that you have everything you need right now? 

Ways to nourish the Wood energy:

  • Go for a walk and enjoy the abundance of new beginnings blooming all around you. 
  • Spring clean!  Get organized and let go of what is not allowing you to move forward.
  • Get a massage to release any tension that has been caused by stress and anger or resentment to open to the flow of abundance in the moment.
