Winter. All of nature is hibernating and ready for the cold snow is accompanying gray days and long nights. Notice that as part of nature, we are reacting to the season in our own body and mind.

Someone just asked me “Usually I keep my home clean and neat, why it is so messy now?” It’s a typical winter situation. Much of your life energy is engaged in maintaining your body temperature and immune system. Not much is left for daily activities. This energy shortage affects your emotions. It is common during winter to feel fatigued mentally, lonely, and easily frustrated. Missing is summer’s joy and enthusiasm.  I call these winter symptoms, Winter Demons. It is easier to conquer the winter demons knowing they will be gone with the Spring. But just waiting is not good enough.

There are many QI Gong & Shiatsu ways to energize and be well over winter.

Try something!  Here’s a quick QI Gong Solution to rebuild the energy and feel better. Sit comfortable and bend slightly forward. With the knuckles of both hands rub the big muscles of your lower back up and down. Rub (rather strongly) or massage with force, you really want to feel the warmth. Now bend your elbows and place your hands on your lower back. Sweep your hands around your side to the front of your stomach and then push your hands away from your body. This takes the stagnant energy and releases it. Repeat this whole process at least three times or until you feel warmer. Next lightly and quickly scratch the same back area with the edges of your nails. After scratching, sweep again. Final step is to place your open hands over the lower back (Kidney area) and enjoy the flow of warming positive energy. This also works also great with the” three o’clock slump” which becomes more pronounced during winter.

 

A great way to feel good is to treat yourself. Experience something more warm, caring and comforting for winter with a Shiatsu session. This could be your answer for that diminished energy. For a brief time, I am offering a 90-minute session for the cost of 60 minutes. For seventy-five dollars you will renew your energy and increase your warmth with a custom shiatsu session.

I woke up this morning with some slight feelings of sadness. Nothing major, just a little hint of it. Is that the sign of summer coming to the end? Perhaps. There will be no more days full of sun and water at the shore; cold beer and hot barbecue will have to wait to taste great until July next year. Good bye. Will see you again.

The reign of Fall is coming. Time to clean and reorganize the storage space, make room for winter supplies, think how and what should we accumulate to survive until the spring.

Sure I know, the nearby supermarket will feed me fresh strawberries all year long; there is no more need for storing potatoes in the basement. But the instincts of survival are not changing as fast as the technology progresses. My body and mind are reacting to incoming seasonal change as they have been doing for thousands of years, for every human being in existence.

I like the fall. There is some stillness and steadiness in the air. Bit by bit the summer rush is losing its edges, lush all-overwhelming spring green is growing yellow and red. In Chinese health philosophy the organ Fall is associated with is the lungs, and that leads to many more associations. Connections and boundaries are the first to come to mind. We are all breathing the same air. No matter where we live, no matter what we do, we need the same air to stay alive. The air is the element that connects and treats all of us equally.

Just imagine entering somebody's house. On the first breath you would know, somebody in there smokes. The smoker is saying, ""I'm here, that is my territory, like it or not."" By this they are clearly marking their personal boundaries, unfortunately in the process they are contaminating our commonly held and precious air.

That's an extreme example, but in the fall we may find ourselves more aware of our personal space. The space we physically live in and emotional interactions in relation to others tend toward a more independent attitude. It may happen just because the fall is here, not because there is anything wrong with us. And one more thing we may find ourselves aware of, as I mentioned in the beginning: the little sadness growing from awareness of passing seasons and years. In the daily rush, moments like that can bring new, bigger perspectives to life, making it more meaningful than the grind of production and consuming.

The year 2001 was not the greatest year of my life. Christmas arrived meeting me short in the money department and I mean truly short! Even buying the mass communication ticket to join my friends for Christmas Eve celebration wasn’t something I could afford, not to mention little gifts for others in my life. So, you can only do what you can do, I decided to celebrate a Christmas Eve alone, just by myself.

The evening of Christmas brought a truly abundant falling of snow. Big, slow falling snow flakes, quiet air without any trace of a wind, stillness and quietness. After a while of watching the beauty out the window, I decided to venture out for a walk. Heavy winter boots, warm clothing, and soon I’m ready to go.

It was even more amazing outside! No traffic on the streets, no people outside and that overwhelming silence a thick blanket of snow brings. Lights radiate from the windows of homes, sometimes even the colorful magnetic lights of a Christmas tree.  So I walk and walk and walk, the charm of a Christmas Eve possessing me fully. Nothing but a step by step walk and wonderful energy embracing the word.

I didn’t know how the time passed or how far I had stepped into the magic of Christmas.  I missed that there are fewer lights on in the windows. Suddenly the awakening that is was well after midnight and I was about six or seven miles away from home. Feeling tired already how thought, how long will I spend to get back?

So within a moment doubt and regret, I thought the charm of Christmas has abandoned me, leaving me when I needed help the most. But it was just a short moment, out from nowhere there comes a city bus. Out of service, with all the inside lights on the driver stopped and asked where I was heading? Traveling in the luxury of warmth, full of light the bus driver had me home just minutes later.

It took a while before the realization came - that’s the Christmas walk is a story of my whole life. When I’m in genuine trouble there is always some help, some new, unexpected chance. The spirit of Christmas Eve is still here, taking care, supporting, helping.

May the Christmas spirit stay with me and  extend help for all who may have bad moments of life to walk through.
