This beautiful heart shaped fuschia caught my eye this morning and prompted me to reflect on the heart energy of Summer, (the Heart meridian is one of 4 meridians that are linked to Fire)...this full and expansive time of year calls us to reconnect with the generous and compassionate qualities of the Fire element and this includes towards ourselves as well as others. In Chinese medicine the Heart is known as the Supreme Controller of the body, mind and spirit, a benevolent leader who rules with kindness and heart.
For us to be able to to put kindness, benevolence and compassion out into the world we need to find it for ourselves first. Just for today keep an eye on how you speak to yourself, do you speak with softness?....if not try changing this, connecting with yourself as if you were a beloved and special person and see how you feel. When I first did this I was shocked at how I spoke to myself as I would never say those things to another, now I regularly check myself and try to be kinder 💖💗💟
Wishing you a day filled with love and heart, Carol xx
