I dare to say that we have all enjoyed the return of Spring, strolling in the street, basking in the first rays of a warmer sun at a terrace, relishing in the longer days.
It’s Spring fever. That is what the name of it is.
And when you’ve got it, you want
—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want,
but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
Just as health literature describes it, Spring is the season of the liver. For a general tour of this amazing organ, which carries out over 500 biological functions, I invite you to refer to my entry blogs of May and March 2013.
In the emotional life, the liver is the filter for frustration and anger. The liver both discharges and stores emotions, whatever is most apropos in the moment, for life to go on as smoothly as possible. It courageously carries out these functions all around the year. During the Spring season, however, the liver is particularly vulnerable to stress and more than willing to offer a new vision to change habits and move forward.
These days, I have seen apparently disparate symptoms all boil down to the frustration/ anger subject. It manifests as digestive issues, shoulder or neck pain, headaches or confusion as to what the future will bring and the next good move to do in life.
Within the safe container of a CranioSacral or Somato Emotional Release session, we enter the depth of the matter at the crossing of the physical and emotional realm. I see true beauty while assisting my clients to let down the politically correct and own their raw emotion. From oblivion to recognition, from shyness to surrender, it’s the path of a human being navigating a foreign land and mapping an unknown territory. In this sacred personal space, owning an emotion is all what’s needed to have the power to let go of it and move on to better shores.
I continue to be amazed to see how a few minutes of CranioSacral Therapy and Somato Emotional Release allow access to deep-seated emotions and increase the ability to own or let go of them at so many levels. I marvel at how much confidence is gained sometimes in just one or two sessions. By the way, did I mention that in the process the physical symptoms significantly decrease or disappear?
Can words describe the fragrance
of the very breath of Spring?
When the person comes back from this profound journey, I witness the calm. Days after the session has concluded, I often hear feedback from clients that the calm has fully integrated into their daily lives. At ease with their personal inner landscape, they are correspondingly at ease with what they project onto the world. The conflicting thoughts and wants of the pasts have subsided. Doubt, frustration and the winter fog yield to Spring light, clarity, serene confidence and determination. The tranquil way of the King or Queen, who went through their own personal journey, knew their power and calmly owned their Kingdom or Queendom, is revealed.
Spring — an experience in immortality.
