The Energy of Spring

Have you ever seen a plant growing out of a crack in a rock? 

That is the energy of Spring....pushing through. 

According to 5 Element Theory the impetus or beginning of Spring is manifesting now. The energy of Spring will build, expand and rise, like the rising sap in the trees and plants, untill the Equinox on March 20.

 At the Equinox, Spring is at its most full, embodying  all the energy of  plants pushing through ground, leaves unfurling, buds bursting, eggs hatching, baby animals being born and  is at its most fulfilled.
After the 20th, the energy of Spring begins to move toward the  ripening of Summer. 

 The Element associated with Spring is Wood Element: 
 Color: Green 
Organs: Liver and Gall Bladder
 Emotion: Anger and Power 
Wood governs the ligaments and tendons, "the wood" of the body Taste: Sour 

 The Wood Element helps us  to plan, store energy and to push through obstacles. It helps us to make our inner dreams manifest in the outer world. 

For many of us, the sudden warmth, growth, and busyness of Spring after the still, sleepy winter, can bring out feelings of impatience, irritability and a kind of shortness in speech and movement.

 For others, Spring wakes us up, makes us want to go outside into the world again, and emerge from our hibernation.

 I usually get energized in the spring and want to make everything happen NOW! (: 

During meditation today, I had the feeling of my energy field getting very strong and had an inkling of what it might be like to flow with the Energy of Spring from an inner place of expansion and power without the striving, impatience and pushiness of ego driven activity. It was feeling of expanding into the Energy and flowing with it. 

 How does Spring feel to you?

 All the Best, Sue
