Summer time is also a great time for igniting your energy. If you rub your hands together, separate them and then, put your hands close together, what do you feel? You feel your energy. You feel heat. Summertime is filled with heat and a very expansive energy.
Within us we have what are called energy centers within our bodies. These are called Chakras. Each center represents different aspects of our lives. This summer fire energy relates to the 3rd Chakra which relates your personal power or self-worth, empowering others, your will, and your strength. One way you can claim your power is step into your fears and to take a little more risks. According to Anodea Judith’s Chakra Balancing Workbook, “There is nothing safe about claiming your power. Power is like a muscle. It doesn’t grow unless it is exercised.”…”Power is only developed when you take risks, move beyond your comfort level, and push yourself into new territory. And when you move beyond your comfort level, you will make mistakes and feel clumsy and perhaps self-conscious. Perfectionism is symptomatic of attaching too much importance to “looking good,” and can only make it difficult for you to move forward. Give yourself room to explore, to flounder, and to learn.”
However, if you are feeling low on energy one way to increase this fire energy is doing a Kundalini or fire breath exercise. This breath can really get you going in the morning. There are many ways to do this type of breath. Briefly, it is bringing deep breaths in through your nose and exhaling out of your mouth fast. You will build up the breath rhythmically until you have equal fast breaths in and out. However, I highly recommend learning this from someone who knows how to do Kundalini or fire breath, because we wouldn’t want you to hyperventilate or pass out if from quickly going into this with short breaths. Again, this breath work is for people who need MORE energy! So if you have plenty of fire and energy, you may not want to do this breath work!
And If you have too much fire then increasing the water element will be helpful. You can do this by drinking more water or being in more water and it will help smooth this energy or decrease the fire. You can also learn to do grounding meditations or just breathing deeply and slowly for at least 20 minutes a day.
