Pisces energy can inspire us to seek out "yin" places, which are uncrowded, watery, or dense with green (like a rain forest, garden, cave, swamp or marsh). Many of us live in places where yang dominates -- busy, crowded, bright lights, highways, shopping malls. Too much yang makes us irritable, tense, and destructive. A yin power spot restores negative ions which has a calming effect, and makes us more receptive to higher awareness.
In his book, Earth Energies: A Quest for the Hidden Power of the Planet, Hawaiian shaman Serge Kahili King says a power spot is relative and exists only in relationship to its surroundings. For example, the urban garden courtyard at your work place may be yin for you, because it's a respite from the busier setting of the office.
Some yin power spots, says King, are canyons, ravines, glens, bay windows, oases, shorelines, waterfalls, fountains and moving water. Quiet, remote areas with few people are yin. And, he writes, "structures like churches, meditations and medicine wheels are yin, too."
Try seeking out a yin spot this month, for balance and peace of mind. One of my favorites is a trail through a lush swamp wilderness that leads to a river. It's a place that's still very wild and natural. I always feel renewed after going there.
