“Don’t dismiss the elements. Water soothes and heals. Air refreshes and revives. Earth grounds and holds. Fire is a burning reminder of our own will and creative power. Swallow their spells. There’s a certain sweet comfort in knowing that you belong to all of them.”
– Victoria Erickson
The idea of understanding and working with the elemental energies for healing, to restore balance and optimize well-being, is fundamental to many healing methodologies, including Traditional Chinese Medicine and 5 Elements Acupuncture.
The image above shows the 5 Elements according to this particular system — it’s a little different to what you might imagine.
Each element comes with its signature strengths and weaknesses, constitutional tendencies and predominant emotional responses.
It is very useful for you to know which element is dominant or out-of-balance in you (and your loved ones) at any given time, and how best to restore balance and well-being.
Which is why I invited a specialist, Crispin Gordon MBAcC LicAc BSc (Hons), to explain it all and give you his expert tips — especially in light of the current challenges.
Enjoy, and let me know how it feels…to be at ease, in your Element.
P.S. Lately, I’m especially fond of the Metal element… can you guess why?
“The metal element has to do with our spirituality. It is the place we choose to find our connection with all of life. When we tend to the precious metal within us, it comes forward as inner strength that shines bright for all to witness.”
– Regina Powers, What Color is Your Medicine?
Another recommended book is Healing Your Emotions: Discover Your Element Type and Change Your Life, by Angela & John Hicks.
