FIRE: governs – summer, heart, tongue, vessels, happiness
FIRE is the energy of summer; it gives us warmth and the capacity to love and be loved. It enables us to mature and blossom. The Fire element expresses itself as joy and manifests within us as love, laughter, and enthusiasm.
Ways to tend your inner Fire:
- Have fun on a regular basis, even if you have to work at it at first. Make it a priority – schedule your fun, if that’s what it takes. Don’t compromise. Consider fun as important to your well-being as work or anything else you do.
- Give of yourself to others. Take the time to listen. Take the risk of dipping into your own heart and finding what you have to give to others unconditionally – then just do it.
- Live your passion, whether it be the church choir, rollerblading, preserving the environment, or writing poetry. If you don’t know what your special passion is, be willing to admit that you don’t. Meanwhile, stay amused and don’t stop looking. When you find that great interest, dive into it wholeheartedly and enjoy!
Get physical. Get into your body and out of your head. Love, exercise, dance, run, play. Get your circulation going.
