What do these have in common you ask? Here in N.Y.C. we almost hit 90 this week. The weather is finally warming up & moving into summer, which is the fire ~ water ~ pitta season of course, & I’m just elated, as you may know. I’ve found there’s nothing better for aches & pains than a few hours in the ocean. This seasonal spring / summer transition, according to ayurveda ~ the sister science to yoga, is ruled by water symbolizing emotions, so as you know, it’s very important to stay hydrated. It’s also imperative to stay mindful, balanced with energy of both the head & heart. But as I always say about the need for both movement & stillness, we all need to take the time to move and stretch plus relax, meditate, & reflect. The chakra energy of the solar plexus is moving upward right now. The earth is blossoming. It’s a great time to incorporate more fruit in your diet. Grapefruit is known to help lower blood pressure & cleanse the blood (it’s always good to check with the doctor before dietary changes for your medications). The image of a rising tide is beautiful. Especially when the moon is full, the earth is more impressionable. The ocean changes. The air gets purified. The sun brings energy. And we can harness this higher vibration in our health & well- being. Foods that help us feel light should currently be key to your nutrition, but fortified to eliminate toxins with additions such as barley for those with allergies, rosewater in a yogurt lassi, sandalwood incense in your home, and mint for both your belly & bugs! ( :share your recipes to modify & improve them for your best health this season, and live with peace, love & grattitude).
