Bring balance to your life with the four elements

Bring balance to your life with the four elements

The four elements of FIRE, EARTH, AIR and WATER are the foundations of life. The heat of the sun, the earth beneath our feet, the air we breathe and the water we drink are essential to our existence. They exist in a harmonious balance and this balance is necessary for us and the planet to stay alive.

The importance of each element

Fire: your energy, taking action and continual movement

Earth: your body, your mindset, your space

Air: your life-force, faith, trust, beliefs, determination

Water: your creativity, flow, thinking, imagination and bringing things into being

The four elements serve as powerful guides on how-to live-in synergy with nature. Every breath of air relaxes us. Fire gives us strength and energy. We learn to flow and be more fluid like water. The earth reminds us to heal and nourish ourselves. When we align with the four elements, we become more present and tap into the wisdom of life itself.

We each tend to rely on one part of our self and dismiss the others. For example, in modern society we focus on our physical bodies (earth) and forget about our spiritual essence (fire). We rely on our minds (air) but ignore our emotional bodies (water).

Finding balance

We can bring ourselves back to balance by using the four elements as reflections of the different aspects of ourselves. Just as one of the elements is not more or less important than any other, no one part of ourselves is more or less important. By keeping the four elements in our awareness on a daily basis, we set into motion our internal healing which allows us to access the immense internal energy that is vital for change.
