Balancing Summer’s Fire Element
Marina’s Tip of the Month:
CONNECTING WITH YOUR TRUTH
Connecting with what we really want in our inner heart is a way to keep fire energy happy. This can mean anything from who you want to spend your time with to what you really want to eat to stay balanced. (In the hotter months, we recommend cooling foods such as ripe tomatoes and watermelon. You can also add more ice to a glass of wine as they did in ancient Greece). Speaking your truth is another powerful way to liberate the heart. This doesn’t mean blurting everything out.
In Tibetan medicine, they refer to speaking ‘like tamed wild horses’, which is about speaking things as they are, but tamed gracefully by wisdom and compassion, and delivered with strength, clarity, grace and integrity. Speaking from the heart is a skill set that can be nurtured. At a time when many are speaking as a group and have lost their voice, this is a means of individual liberation.
