Rest and how to cultivate Yin energy
It seems like that time of the year is already here, everything feels a little high paced and the diary is booking up.
So the best thing you can do is to take a restful attitude amongst the busy and enhance that energy we call Yin, within our daily lives.
So Yin is all about nurturing and holding the peace within our heart, it's the energy of no rush allowing ease and grace to filtrate our lives. Now don't get me wrong Yin energy is not about doing nothing, if anything it's the energy that will get things done in a real no bothersome way, things just get done with a no stress attitude when your Yin leads.
It's a certain intent that is needed to cultivate this Yin energy, to keep it working for us and we do this by sinking deep into that part of us that knows when we must pull back and rest. It's that part of us that knows when we are pushing and need to slow down. When we do this the Yin backs us and allows that Yang (adrenaline energy) to take a back seat, giving us energy that is more grounded and will last longer and not drain us.
So breathe and stop every time you feel the rush and sink back into that nurturing you, centre then move forward in a more relaxed Yin way.
Things will get done but your energy will remain.
Try it out, and don't get hypnotized by the rush of this time of year.
