Winter is a time of rest and hibernation as nature retreats to build its reserves for its next season cycle. Winter brings the energy of the water element. The water element can drive fear, ambition, and will power.
This is a time to go with the flow, learn to be flexible and understand how water in nature overcomes obstacles. Imagine how water can flow as a trickling stream, a tidal wave or as a magnificent water fall. There is no one way, adaptation to the ebb and flow of life is what helps us flow through with ease.
Winter is a time for reflection and rest, a time to nurture our bodies with nutrient packed soups, stews, curries and broths. The more we can rest, recuperate and nourish ourselves in winter, the more energy we can have to flourish in spring.
