South energies teach us how to give with our emotions with tenderness, which is a means of “energy motion” or “E-motion.” Emotions are meant to be expressed, to flow freely. In other words, if we are angry we give our anger; when we are happy we give happiness; when we are sad, we cry and give with sadness. Our emotions are a part of our beauty, which we have to give away. As long as we are giving our emotions with tenderness, our emotions are true, clear and clean expressions of what is happening with us. We are in balance.
The grasses and grains sit in the South of the Plant World wheel, which, like Grandmother Earth’s skin, hold the sand and soil in place. They are like her hair, protecting her skin and preventing erosion. They are the double givers, in that they hold nutrients, water, sunlight, and carbon dioxide, and give all that as nourishment for other life.
