Your body is meant to flow with the seasonal changes, resistance can lead to you getting sick. Read this article prepared by a Ballarat homeopath to be guided how to the energetics of summer in a naturally healthy way.

You might want to stay in the same flow, because it’s what you are used to, or because it is comfortable, but you aren’t built for that. Being sensitive and in tune with your surroundings is important. They do have an impact on your health.

As summer arrives, it is important to be aware of what changes, so that you can flow with the change and maintain optimal health. Summer is a time of growth, abundance, vitality, and increased lifeforce.

Element & Energy of Summer

There is a shift from the outward motion of spring to the upwards motion of summer. Summer is a time for connecting to others. Elementally, summer has strong connections with fire. Fire connects with the sound of laughter. Making summer a time to spend time with each other in laughter, not taking ourselves too seriously.

The risk of sunburn is a reminder to us of fire, too, the energy of the sun being more intense than it is other times of the year.

It is also a time of letting go. During summer is the perfect time to look at what is going on in your life and separating ourselves from what no longer serves us. Removing the barriers that are in the road of you living your most abundant life.

Getting Healthy with Energetics of Summer

You might notice more going on in your heart and gut during summer, these are the organs of the season. When they are well balanced, you will feel light and full of laughter. If they are out of balance, you might feel overheated, or your gut might feel upset.

It is important that you remember not to get too caught up in the energy of the summer. Taking time to cool down is also important. Take a dip in the water – physically and/or emotionally – and bring yourself back into balance.

Meditation in the shade is a great way of restoring mindfulness. Especially when the heat of summer will creep back in easily, reminding you that it is a time of exercising and feeling your hearts beating in your chest. A time to feel alive.

Remember to take some time to cool down physically, with a dip in the water and emotionally, with breathwork meditations in the shade. The summer heat will come creeping in and remind us that this is a time to sweat, cleanse, exercise, and feel our hearts beating in our chests.

You can eat smaller meals, full of seasonal foods. Fresh fruit and vegetables are great this time of year. Your herbal friends are those with a cooling nature like hibiscus, peppermint, chamomile, orange, lemon peel, and spearmint.
