Happy New Year! It’s that time of year again and this year, we are celebrating and living the Year of the Yin Wood Goat (Ram). We’ve had enough of the racing Horse of last year and the upheavals and disruptions in our lives. This year, the inner peaceful and feminine goat brings us a respite in time when we can reflect upon last year’s changes and begin to build upon all the newness those upheavals brought to our lives. This is the year to build beauty and contentment into our personal spaces. Time to see art, listen to music, clean our homes of chipped plates and torn items that take the peace and beauty away from our domiciles. It is the time to rid ourselves of toxic relationships, jobs that manifest discontent, and routines that are counterproductive to happiness and good health. It is the year to practice language – learn a new language and master our primary language. It is the perfect time to practice kindness and generosity – both in words and deeds. The passive and feminine Goat year allows us the space to mend, nurture and heal our hearts, minds, and bodies. The quietness of the Goat allows us to live our lives with refined elegance and devout each task with absolute attention and devotion.
This is the perfect time to reflect on quality of life and that begins with your good health. Traditional Chinese Medicine has been practiced for over 2,000 years and unlike western philosophy, all aspects of mind, body and spirit are taken into account when a patient walks through my clinic door. I heal the mind, body and spirit – this is my mission in life. This is why many M.D.s send their ‘hopeless’ cases to me – and I get results!
It’s the Year of the Yin Wood Goat: Time for Compassion, Reflection, and Quiet Living
This year, remember to be nice to yourself first. Only when you are in balance can you help or make a difference for anyone else in the world. Take on the habit of weekly or biweekly acupuncture sessions to stay happy and healthy.
What’s my goal this year? I’m on a mission to see more art, listen to more music, visit the world’s natural beauties and continue to heal you fine people and keep you entertained with more exciting tales of adventures you all love to listen to!
Have a Happy New Year and whatever you do this year – be happy, safe and healthy!
