Holographic Reflections & Coaching Notes
The Energy Season of Fire Element
Quality #9 - Maturity
How accepting are you of the aging process? Are you feeling old -like life is passing you by? Or are you feeling that aging is something that belongs to someone else not you?
It is important to resonate with our stage of life and the full potential of what each stage offers us. When it comes to the Fire Element quality of MATURITY we are luckily supported by the baby boomer group of the population.
Boomers have been changing the norms of what is acceptable for every stage of the life cycle since the 60's and as they(we) mature - aging is also being redefined. This group has opened the door to uncharted territories of what it means to become old. What any of us do at this stage will set a new normal for generations to come!
In the mix of changes are societal expectations for a longer lifespan, retirement well past a previous requirement of 65 years, and a longer healthspan. When we are seniors, we are now more likely to expect to live longer and participate longer in the economy, in some adapted way that taps into our wisdom and experience.
How we spend our money also matters. What is emerging is a longevity economy where seniors have a voice and figure prominently.
It's a title wave of consciousness that is supported by the fact that seniors world wide aged 65 or older outnumbered children younger than five globally for the first time in 2018. This group demands to be seen, heard, valued and respected. It is a global consciousness we can also tap into and contribute to with our self-perception for maturity.
When our Fire Element is coherent, so too is our quality of maturity. We are more likely to challenge old notions of aging, live the next chapter of our lives with fulfillment pursuing our passions and being happy and content. Reflect on how the quality of maturity shows up for you and where it may need to improve to serve you better.

Quality #8 - Sorting Things Out
Where are you experiencing a split in your life or feel confused? How is your ability to sort things out?
Our ability to 'sort things out' is a Fire Element quality that is energetically associated with the small intestine meridian and active during the summer season. When our Fire Element is coherent we find the 'sorting out quality' helps us to easily make moment to moment decisions - what junk mail to keep or throw away, where to put things when tidying up, which calls to take now or later. The task of decluttering or moving homes benefits from this quality!
It also helps us to be discriminating as to who to spend time with and who to avoid and to listen to our heart's truth. Do you hang out with people that uplift you or put you down in some way? Are you in denial about your needs and feelings putting up with situations that are draining you?
The small intestine meridian helps us to digest what we have taken in distributing what is coherent and nourishing for us and sending everything else ot the large intestine for elimination. We are able to listen attentively, have clarity about our priorities that support an enriched life, and benefit from the gift of wise insight. We enjoy life's challenges and have a sense of fun and joy.
How will you use the energy of the Fire Element Season and the quality of sorting out to add to your positive life story where everything makes sense and you anticipate being at the beginning of something wonderful happening for you?

Quality #7 - Positive Control
Have you experienced a time, when life seemed to be out of control for you? It can feel very unsettling and raise our stress and anxiety levels.
Having Positive Control is another Fire Element quality that helps us to manage the stream of life events coming towards us. Everytime we handle a situation with power, self control, good habits, grace and compassionate intent etc. we add those experiences and associated feelings to our library of life stories. The more frequent and positive our stories of how we handled things...the more our brain reaches for them to help us manage the next unexpected set of events in our life. Our quality of positive control is also strengthened.
We barely notice these stories, but they help us negotiate the upsets of life that are sure to come along as well as support our intentions for good habits, relationships and more.
When our Fire Element is coherent, so too is our quality of having and building positive control. We find ourselves managing life, relationships, time, habits and more with ease and good humor. Reflect on how this quality shows up for you and where it may need to improve to serve you better.
Non Coherent Aspects - "I am chaotic."; "My life feels out of control."; "I am overly controlling of others."; "I am controlled by ______(fill in with a name relevant to you - if any)."
Coherent Aspects - "I exert positive control over myself."; "I exert positive control over my habits."; "I exert positive control over my finances and spending."; "I create order in my life."
How will you use the energy of the Fire Element Season and the quality of positive control to add to your positive life story where everything makes sense and you anticipate being at the beginning of something wonderful happening for you?
Quality #6 - Communication & Connection
Our ability to connect with others, hear them and to feel heard is yet another Fire Element quality activated in the season of summer. Qualities of communication and connection give us the ability to form fulfilling relationships no matter how brief. It helps us to express ourselves comfortably with close family and friends, as well as other groups such those we may meet at church, at work or simply with strangers at a store que or public event.
When this energy is coherent... we easily make warm eye contact, express pleasantries with others, or have deeper conversations. We are adept at helping others to join in and ask for their opinion. Our heart felt communications puts others at ease and builds trust.
This is a great quality to access when you are meeting new people such as on vacation or visits with family and friends you have not seen in a long time. This quality will make it seem like you have never lost touch. In a zoom call, especially with strangers, this quality puts everyone at ease and meetings flow with open communication.
How do the summertime qualities of communication and connection support you? Where does your communication style let you down and create problems? Where would you like to experience more connection with others?
Non Coherent Aspects - "I feel awkward in social communications."; "I experience miscommunications in my life."; "I can't communicate from my heart or feelings."; "I can't stop talking."
Coherent Aspects - "I listen to others and take in the riches of what they offer."; "I feel relaxed at ease in social situations and with people I don't know, getting a conversation going and enjoying listening and talking."; People are naturally attracted to my warmth and brightness and i enjoy relation with everyone."
How will you use the energy of the Fire Element Season and the quality of communication and connection to add to your positive life story where everything makes sense and you anticipate being at the beginning of something wonderful happening for you?

Quality #5 - Protection
The quality of PROTECTION is energetically rooted in the Fire Element acupuncture meridian called The Heart Protector. It's sole job is to protect the heart and in doing so performs much like a sentry guard at the palace gate or the gate-keeper. All the other 11 meridians of our energy system count on this one to be able to do their own job function of keeping us happy, healthy and whole. If the Heart Protector falls down on the job the other meridians fall into chaos as well.
The heart protector helps us to take actions to keep ourselves safe and protected from harm - physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and in relationship to others. When non coherent, we can feel alone, accident prone, we may mask our true feelings of hurt with laughter; we don't feel safe in close intimate relationships and may prefer to do without them.
When the Heart Protector is doing it's job the quality of PROTECTION is naturally regulating our thoughts and actions. We anticipate safety issues in our environment and make changes as necessary (wearing a mask in public, unplugging the iron, moving a sharp knife to a safe place on the counter, following the traffic signs for speed, caution etc). We avoid threatening situations and can trust our ability to discern if someone is trustworthy or not. In relationship, we trust ourselves to be vulnerable with our intimate partner. We are also able to face past traumas of closeness and intimacy and do the work of healing them often with a therapist or other healer.
Our Heart Protector regulates many decisions made throughout the day that keeps us safe. This quality of PROTECTION is activated energetically during the summer season. Take a few moments to reflect on your own quality of self-protection. Do you feel safe? Do you easily take safety precautions or take big risks to your safety? Are you able to trust who is good for you and who is not? .
Non Coherent Aspects - "I am accident prone."; "I distrust people."; "I get hurt"; or "I feel vulnerable, insecure and unprotected."
Coherent Aspects - "My immune system protects me"; "I feel safe and open with people."; "I am safe and accident free."
How will you use the energy of the Fire Element Season and the quality of protection to add to your positive life story where everything makes sense and you anticipate being at the beginning of something wonderful happening for you?
Quality #4 - Open-Heartedness
The HeartMath Institute claims that the frequency of our physical heart can project out into a room as much as 50 feet! Coupled together with the fire element quality of open-heartedness, this physicality of our hearts energy affects how we relate to other people well before we may have said anything to them! Being open-hearted, especially in the face of challenges, requires that we tap into our inner sense of unconditional love and forgiveness. It's a place that can require us to be vulnerable, and courageous as we radically accept what is for any given situation and reach for it's higher purpose for us. Sometimes, it challenges us to set aside our beliefs and values to provide the allowing and accepting others need from us. When we are open-hearted we easily seek to find the higher perspective that explains all and allows love to flow.
In the world of energy - love melts all negativity!
What we project from our heart is often mirrored in all of our relationships. When it is open and loving we can as easily say 'hello' and act considerately with strangers as we do warmly embracing a close friend. Our presence brings pleasure to everyone we meet.
How is your open heart reflected in your network of family, friends, neighbors and colleagues? Do you need to dial your hearts love up or down?
Non Coherent Aspects - "People reject me."; "People hurt me."; "I am overly serious in my relationships."; or "My heart feels closed to people."
Coherent Aspects - I enjoy people."; "People are drawn to me."; I enjoy fun and laughter in my relationships."
How will you use the energy of the Fire Element Season and the quality of open-heartedness to add to your positive life story where everything makes sense and you anticipate being at the beginning of something wonderful happening for you?
Quality #3 - Balance
Summertime's fire element energy comes with an internal thermostat - the quality of balance. This quality is regulated by our Triple Heater meridian line of energy, helping us to regulate our body temperature on the physical level. On emotional, mental and spiritual levels, balance regulates the quality of our relationships. When it is coherent we experience balanced giving and receiving, we balance our social time versus down time to recharge and we easily say 'yes' or 'no' to invitations for the use of our time so that our activities are aligned to our goals.
When our thermostat is out of whack we can find...ourselves being the one who always gives and never receives, or we are always the receiver with little to give. These positions will weaken our relationships with resentment by or power struggles with our givers or receivers. We may find ourselves partying too much, staying up too late and becoming chronically tired and de-energized.
Check in with your thermostat by reviewing your social calendar, your giving/receiving habits and the daily choices you are making. Are you maintaining the best temperature for you?
Non Coherent Aspects - "I have temperature imbalances.","I lose my mental equilibrium in relationship"; "In relationships I give more than I receive."; "In my relationships I take more than I give."
Coherent Aspects - "I have harmonious relationships."; "I experience balanced temperature in my emotional and mental states."; "In my relationships I balance my giving with receiving"
How will you use the energy of the Fire Element Season and the quality of Balance to add to your positive life story where everything makes sense and you anticipate being at the beginning of something wonderful happening for you?
Quality #2 - Compassion
The quality of compassion is considered to be a primary principle of human flourishing. According to the organization "Charter of Compassion" compassionate people tend to...
When we exercise compassion, we become less rigid, willing accept gray areas in life and consequently our judgments are less critical and more understanding. We become likelable because our very presence can bring a sense of calm and acceptance among a group of people.
We must first learn to exercise compassion for ourselves cultivating the art of naming and letting go of our regrets, as well as appreciating our daily accomplishments, learning and insights.
What qualities of COMPASSION do you resonate with? (and broadcast to others?)
Non Coherent Aspects - "I do not understand another's suffering.","My heart is closed." "What's in it for me?"
Coherent Aspects - "I bring compassion to all my relationships."; " I exercise compassionate judgement with awareness and caring intent."; I feel for others' suffering while maintaining my sense of self."; "I choose compassion over criticism."
How will you use the energy of the Fire Element Season and the quality of Compassion to add to your positive life story where everything makes sense and you anticipate being at the beginning of something wonderful happening for you?

Our current seasonal energy of Fire Element has much to do with the quality of our relationships and how we connect with others. When entering a situation where there are new people we have an underlying need to feel welcomed and accepted. Warm initial greetings can help to convey this feeling of being welcomed and opens us our energy field to enriching exchanges of energy.
However, the part of the brain that is constantly looking out for danger or the sky falling in, can reduce our body language to something more cautious, stern, and aloof. Unconsciously we are on red alert for problems and broadcast that to others. We can miss out on many wonderful relationship connections as a result.

With love and light
It's spring here in Toronto and typically the wood element qualities of this energy are all around us, - new beginnings, creativity, hope, positive self-assertion potential, identity and more. But we are no longer in typical times with the 3rd and 4th wave of the pandemic crushing the hopes of many people everywhere that the pandemic rages. While most of us are surviving, we are not really flourishing. A recent New York Times article says it all.... THERE’S A NAME FOR THE BLAH YOU’RE FEELING: IT’S CALLED LANGUISHING. Languishing is the word I think brilliantly captures how many are experiencing life in general if not the spring season. It is the non-coherent side of wood element energy.
The article claims if you are suffering from this non coherent state of being you are not alone and that I - feel, may be part of the problem. You are tapping into the collective energy – a morphic field of resonance of this frequency. Conscious deliberate actions may be the way out.
Like the daisies pictured above we need to be aware of our state of being and reach for a healthier response to life. The daisies remind me of the qualities of hopefulness and positive self-assertion as the flowers defy hard gravel and cement (our collective feeling response about the pandemic) to find the light no matter how limited their space. Now that is optimism!
1. Name Regrets and Appreciations - The metal element exercise of naming your regrets can help kick start an improved energy cycle for you and move into the benefits of springtime energy. At the end of each day name your regrets and chase it down with at least 3 good things that happened for you today. You get an endorphin boost if you write these down. To address the monotony of pandemic days blurring together, record your regrets in a journal and date each day. As you look back in your journal chances are you will note progress!
2. Revisit Your Life Vision - This is an outstanding time to review (or establish!) a life vision intention for yourself and list some short and long-term goals. What small movement can you take to move your vision along?
Members here at www.LightTravels.com – Login to your account and visit your Profile page (see the link in the drop down under the login icon). Scroll down and you will find a place to record your Life Vision Intention. Return there to remind yourself about what you wrote and where you are headed next in your life. FYI you can also use this same statement in every group session I offer here at LightTravels.com
Spend some time with your Life Vision statement and visualize the possibilities to get in touch with the quality of optimism within yourself.
3. One last idea to grow wood element energy within yourself, - literally plant some seeds! You don't have to be a big time gardener to get into wood element. Buy a packet of flower seeds and get them started according to the directions. You will find the daily act of watering your seeds, watching them sprout, grow, really grow and then blossom will invoke many wood element qualities - anticipation, potential, hope, optimism, focus, timing, new beginnings and vision. For the cost of a simple packet of seeds, the energy return is priceless. Use it to ponder with more optimism and hope about where your life is going.
Lastly if you are seriously suffering from pandemic blues, consider a session with your therapist, or book a repatterning session with me to access your inner knowing and reboot your state of being.
With love and light
