How to wake up the Cancer energy within you?
Here are 4 things that you can do to wake up Cancer energy:
1. Cancer carries his home on his back, wherever he goes, brings in his wound, the family from which he originates, the heredity and the influence of the environment that has formed him. The story of the family from which we originate is created in each next generation at the cellular level. Right from the moment of our birth, we are the bearers of the unresolved conflicts of all the ancestors of our family tree. Make a family tree and remember the life destiny of all relatives.
2. Make a nice gesture to your mother. Also call on the phone, find the time to hear it more often, go and visit her, invite her to have coffee, and say how grateful you are for everything she has done for you. Forgive all the "mistakes" you think she has made. Ask for her forgiveness about the things you've been upset about over the years. Remember, your mother has done the best she could for you and you are here on this land thanks to her and her love.
3. Make this week something special for your home. Apply the principles of Feng Shui to your home or office.
4. Cancer teaches us to give and to forgive unconditionally. In this week, make gestures of sympathy to a needy person.
