Yes you have to get this right, you are the “impatient fix it” person. Action stations here you come. When pitta dominates our mind body-type it’s easy to over exert, over eat, over work, over everything in your desire for beauty, order, perfection or success. Chill out time my friend!
Here is how it works, pitta is predominated by the elements fire and water- the water element relates in our bodies to digestive juices and blood. When pitta is imbalanced or in excess for your nature-or Prakriti- we accumulate excess heat inside. Heat leads to dryness, inflammation and itchiness. Acidity, redness, impatience and irritability are also common signs of pitta imbalance.
Pitta governs digestion and metabolism, how you digest your food, everything you see-sight is governed by pitta dosha-everything you experience and everything you feel needs to be ‘digested’and metabolised. Anything that overloads us (stresses us) effects pitta dosha.
Demanding behaviour, excessive perfectionism, tendency toward frustration or anger, skin rashes-the skin is governed by pitta dosha. Irritability, impatience- ok I am going as fast as I can using bullet points not sentences! Early greying or hair loss- NO not you….hmmm, red, blood shot eyes, eyesight deterioration and heartburn.
Promotional, artistic, entrepreneurial, action orientated roles suit pitta types. You are not shy of the spotlight so acting and sales works well. Color, beauty and a love of nature along with the ability to over exert yourself makes landscape gardening a good choice, digging in the soil grounds you.
Don’t discuss deadlines, or problems just before lunch. Don’t make them wait for food, actually avoid making them wait for anything.
When your doshas are balanced-you are living the unique balance of the 3 doshas that is your nature or Prakritti- you will be radiantly happy, blissful and most able to enjoy all your relationships. Problems and strain occur when we are out of balance – then the not so healthy and not so easy to live with aspects of any dosha are on show. The key to successful relationships is to balance the underlying fundamental principals of mind and body, the 3 doshas.
Successful relationships are based on your ability to give, when you are tired and strained you don’t have so much to give……..watch this 3 minute Maharishi video on relationships.
