In 5 elements acupuncture, Summer is the season that corresponds with the fire element.
The energy in the nature around us is at its highest. The days are longer, especially at the summer solstice.
The fire element also corresponds with the heart meridian.
When the fire element is balanced inside of us, we can experience deep joy, passion and love: passion for what we do and passion for life. Love for ourselves and for others around us.
When that element is balanced, one can live their passions and share their innate gifts with the world. However, when the fire element is imbalanced, one might be sad and have no passion. One might not love what they do in life or not love who they are.
The Shen –or Spirit -lives in the heart and is a channel for spiritual growth and awareness. With 5 elements acupuncture it is possible to help one to balance those energies and emotions and then can experience more inner joy and passion in life.
