We’ve woken up to a misty, cool air morning here in Exeter, Devon. Autumn is definitely here and I am looking forward to seeing what patterns occur in my Shiatsu treatments this week.
There are particular Meridians – lines of energy- that relate to each season. When the seasons change often the focus of my treatments changes too.
Autumn is the time that relates to the Lung and Large Intestine Meridians. This is the time to let go and move on.
Both these Meridians are related to the element of Metal. They are around the emotional issues of grief and personal boundaries, along with clarity of mind.
To get going this week – and to get going with Autumn – below is a stretch for the Lung and Large Intestine Meridians. To begin to get into the feel and idea of the Autumn energy.
As with all stretching go gently, listen to your body, don’t push it and warm up and warm down.
These two Meridians also enjoy cardiovascular exercise- so get out in the fresh air for a walk. Doesn’t have to be long or fast, choose your pace, listen to your body.
You may also want to do some cleaning and organising (you are not obliged to!) Getting things organised or scrubbing your cupboards is in time with the Metal element and these Meridians.
Have a good week whatever you are getting up to. I’m always here for advice on individual exercises and recommendation.
