Emotions: Tranquility and Gentleness

Womaneating_small.jpg

The energy of Fire is the most Yang of all the Five Transformations. It is an active and expanding energy which is related to our hearts and small intestines. It is the time of summer and noon and...the full moon! 

The grains that are associated with this energy are corn and quinoa and the vegetables are summer greens, such as kale, collards and bok choy.

When these organs are ailing, we lose some of our natural self control and become more excitable, with a tendency to burst into excessive laughter. But when the heart and small intestines are in good health, we are at peace...and experience feelings of tranquility and gentleness.
