With this spell of good weather, I’ve been musing a little on summer. In my previous guise as a Five Element acupuncturist, the seasons were incredibly important and I’m still very tuned into what they mean to me, and others, energetically.
Summer can be a busy time for people and one when it’s easier to live an “external” life, with good weather, longer nights and often an increase in social activities like barbecues and weddings. This can be fun and interesting but can move our focus from what’s going on for us. There are lots of distractions.
It can also be a time when what we are lacking becomes more evident and vulnerabilities raise their heads. Our reality and how far it is from what we want may become apparent. For some, those social invites don’t come in and it can be a very lonely time. For others, those invites can become a source of great stress and anxiety.
