March: The Third Month of Miraculous New Beginnings in 2018

Spring represents all things fresh bright and colorful. Flowers bloom (if it isn’t still snowing), hope of new birth, fresh ideas, and creative endeavors are given birth this month.

In the world of numbers: the number 3 is often thought of as creative, bright, team playing, expressive, artistic. It sometimes could leave us scattered, incomplete, ungrounded, and sad too.

The third chakra is located at and around the solar plexus and is related to the will, personal power, self-esteem, commitments, and identity. It is represented by the color yellow and is called Manipura. Physically this area is related to the adrenals, kidneys, liver, gall bladder, spleen, pancreas, stomach.

Regarding the third Tattva: It is represented by the fire element, will, self-esteem, and self confidence. It is associated with the color yellow, and is related to vision.

So what would nourish and encourage the best for this 3rd month of 2018?

First: GET OUTSIDE every day and see the brightness as much as you can! The sun is so healing, it is the essential fire part of our lives. There is so much research on the emotional and physical health benefits of vitamin D from the sun.

Second: Breathe from the belly and imagine speaking to others from this area for a more empowered voice for what you do want.

Third: Learn about breath of fire. It is a rapid breath through the nose, sort of like sniffing except done by contracting the stomach muscles to exhale through the nose. The exhale through the nose is audible, and then the inhale through the nose is passive. Takes a little practice but is very powerful and empowering for this month.

Have a great hike outside and a wonderful Easter!
