When I first read Energy Medicine by Donna Eden I didn’t take the 5 energy Rhythms seriously enough my first read-through. It wasn’t until this month, as the seasons here in Washington are so dramatically different, that I started to notice the energetic effects of the Seasons. It’s the Autumn season that always hit’s the hardest for me, and brings about the most dramatic changes to a soon-to-end year, the solstice cycle.
“Your body, your movements, and your disposition were formed within the energy of one of the seasons of nature, and they are imbued with a rhythm that blends that season’s rhthm with the rhythms of the seasons preceding and following it. Beyond the rhythm that is embedded in your character, you move through all five rhthms many times during the cycles that comprimise a lifetime. Both your core rythm and the rhythm through which you are passing at any given moment profoundly influence the way you respond to the world.”– Energy Medicine – Donna Eden
