Spring Season of the Wood element, Spring
is a time of creation and renewal. The Plants, who through the Winter have hidden underground or waited in their seed bunkers, now burst forth into the sun, Green and growing fast. We also feel this energy, as longer, warmer days give rise to feelings of inspiration, motivation, and hope.
Spring is the time for cleansing, to prepare for the New. Wind blows dead twigs and limbs from the trees, rain cleans away last year's dust, and the new growth looks shiny and vibrant. We are also motivated to clean our homes and gardens, to discard what has become clutter and make space for our new plans.
Many people cleanse the body and mind in springtime as well. Leaves and sprouts support the body at this energetic time, and are helpful clearing away extra fat accumulated during a winter diet meant to keep us warm. Sour foods are also supportive; a popular juice cleanse uses Lemonade made with fresh lemons, maple syrup, and cayenne. An emphasis on freshness and whole foods will help you sustain the wonderful energy of the season.
In the spirit of renewal, Spring is a good time to start a new exercise routine. Consult your Team about trying something new, or change your routine to fit new goals.
New Ideas often manifest in springtime. Like a master gardener, plan ahead, prune and thin, nurture the best ideas, and have patience. Your efforts in springtime will bear fruit later in the year.
Challenge yourself, and let the energy of Spring inspire you.
