Today musings are about decisions, sometimes we forget that every minute of everyday we are making some sort of decision that will take us a step forward, it can be simply which type of fruit to eat or seeds to plant or it can be the bigger stuff like choosing schools for our children or deciding the next best step in life. Whatever the decision it is the Wood element and the gall bladder energy in particular that supports this. I always feel that making decisions, especially those big ones, are like giving birth, endless 'pain' and huffing and puffing for a while and then once the decision and way forward becomes clear the pain is completely forgotten. Springtime is full of decisions, it is nature's time to plan for the year ahead, knowing that the seeds that are planted now will bring the harvest later in the year.
So how can we get the Wood energy moving when we feel stuck? Simply get moving, Wood energy is dynamic and it loves to move. My favourite way is walking and swinging my arms this brings the energy down into the body away from the 'thinking 'busy head and belps us move options through our body. The gall bladder meridian is long, it starts by the outer edge of the eye, travels back and forward over the head and then wends its way down the body, down the outside of the legs and ends at the 4th toe, there are 44 acupuncture points almost half of which are on the head, great for thinking but sometimes we also need to 'feel' a decision too.
On that note I am off for a morning walk, it's a hazy start here in Devon but promises to be lovely and bright later, have a gorgeous day everyone 🌱🌳lots of love Carol x
