Happy Chinese New Year! Happy Year of the Earth Dog!

Some random ideas/info:

Energy of the year supports positive Dog attributes including loyalty, friendship, and service. The energy also supports caring for the earth and our internal earth energy.

After a fiery 2017 Chicken year, nice to get grounded in 2018 Earth energy. Mercola’s website has great information on ways to get grounded- besides the best= getting your feet directly on dirt, sand, soil as temperature allows. https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2018/01/20/grounding-benefits.aspx

In Chinese Medicine, Earth represents Home, nourishment, digestion (Stomach and Spleen), center, grounding, wholeness. Time to tend to what we eat and our digestion.

Perfect year to remember Chief Seattle’s wisdom:

All things share the same breath – the beast, the tree, the man… the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.”

Internet searches will give you tons of information and perspective on this year’s, Earth Dog. I hope to add info thru the year!

For now, Happy New Year!
