Joy… a Birthright

This time of year is all about JOY. Summer is the season of the Fire Element and the Heart in Chinese Medicine. The Heart exudes joy – summer is time to have fun! Here are some of my favorite ways to slip into summer’s fun & joy…
Cherries & Berries… strawberries, blackberries, and stone fruit in general.
Play Frisbee at the ocean’s edge. Sometimes I embody the spirit of a puppy, leash free on the beach, so fun!
BBQ… even if you don’t eat meat, grill up some summer squash, onions and whatever veggies you can find at the Farmers Market.
Laughter… super silly belly laughs where you are laughing so hard you forgot what was funny in the first place.
I know you have your summer fun rituals… get to it!

We really never need a reason to have fun, joy is a birthright.
But if you want a reason here’s one…
The world we live in is full of intensity… catastrophic natural disasters, school shootings, economic hardship, wars ( I don’t need to tell you – we are all too aware).
I invite you to take on a personal mission to have fun and feel joy. The balance of feeling pleasure is imperative in remembering the big picture and summer is the perfect season to do it.
As always I am more than happy to help if you are feeling stuck in the shift of seasons or the ebbs and flows of life in general. I invite you in for a seasonal “Qi Reboot”. Sometimes we need a reminder that the “goodness” is at hand.
