The Perspective of Precipitation

Nov 18, 2021

 

With the arrival of winter to our lovely little corner of the world, it's the time of year when us Northerners become very attuned to the different forms of water: rain, freezing rain, snow, blowing snow, sleet, and ice.

Consider precipitation as a metaphor for how energy moves in your life, how it flows to all the things you do, the ways you move, the roles you play, and the projects you're working on.

Where is energy flowing placidly like a gentle mountain stream? Where is it moving wildly like a rushing river? Where is it frozen like an icicle?

The good news is that unlike the Canadian winter, once we've observed all this, we do have some say in the matter. We can direct our energy - physically, energetically, emotionally, and creatively – to flow through blocks, we can defrost the frozen bits, fine tune the velocity where needed, and replenish the riverbeds that have gone dry.
 
One of the best ways to start to revitalize and balance the flow of energy in your body is to awaken the feet and lower legs. Here are two short practice videos I created, one standing and the other seated, to guide you in doing just that. I hope you enjoy them!
