We made it! We survived the hibernation of Winter. Don't get us wrong, we love retreating and reflecting inward during the cooler months but we are always excited to welcome the newness of Spring!
If we look at the 5 Element theory Spring is partnered with the Wood element. Spring is the beginning of the season cycle, a time of birth and new beginnings. This is the energy that brings forth new growth, that pushes the new grass through the snow, the new branches out from old wood and produces new leaves on the trees. It does this so nature can take in the nourishment it needs to flourish.
Wood energy is about moving forward, it's a direct and assertive energy that makes no apologies in pushing things out of it's way! Exactly what we need after the stagnation of the cold winter months.
As in nature the Wood energy is part of the energy of our body - the acupuncture meridians of the Liver and Gall Bladder. Given that each meridian has a job in the body's kingdom, the Gall Bladder meridian is "The Upright Official who Excels in Judgment" and the Liver is "The Official in Charge of Planning".
These Wood meridians give us the energy to have new ideas, to move forward, to have plans,to change who we are, to be assertive, to make decisions,to have vision and to have hope for our future.
