Yin is an energy that embraces and nurtures us in ways similar to how mothers all around the world have been doing for their children since the beginning of time.
Yin is an energy that supports and feeds us on a deep spiritual level. It is inward drawing, contemplative, receptive and inclusive. It calms us down when we’re upset, nourishes us when we are hungry, lends us a shoulder when we need to cry and gives us the assurance that everything will be okay.
It is a quality, a feeling, a person, a place or a thing that we turn to when we need to feel safe and comforted. It is that part of us that knows deep down we’re not alone.
So, while one day is really not enough to celebrate all that our mother’s represent, it is worth remembering that male or female, we all possess these nurturing yin qualities. Whether a friend, a parent, a lover or a stranger on the street, we are moving from a deep place when we can see that taking care of one another is a virtue worth celebrating all year round.
Give your mum the gift of something unique and empowering. Acupuncture is a great way to nurture ourselves from the inside out. To help balance and restore the body, calm the mind and find some ease in your day.
