Winter connects us to the element of Water and Kidney and Urinary Bladder. It is a time to promote stillness, reflection, and nourish our spiritual and emotional lives. Regarded as the powerhouse of all of the body, the kidneys play an integral in regulating and maintaining our body’s waterworks, and our creativity and fertility. Balancing movement and rest is essential to keeping us rooted in busy and stressful times in our lives and avoid burning the candle at both ends. Allow any limiting beliefs be cleansed by the earth. Just as a tree draws its sap down into the trunk and descending to the roots for hibernation and deep rest to be nourished by the earth. Move past your fears and awaken the wisdom within, to your seeds of potential.
