So, you’ve chosen the Earth element…
The earth element is associated with the ROOT chakra. As this is the first chakra, it acts as the ground floor or foundation that holds everything else up. your earth element is what determines your sense of safety and security, and your ability to manifest abundantly in your life. It is the densest AND SLOWEST MOVING of all the energy centers, and governs our physical experience on the planet as well as our connection to the earth itself. EARTH DEFINES YOUR BOUNDARIES AND YOUR ABILITY TO STRUCTURE AND ORGANIZE YOUR LIFE.
In the polarity therapy model of energy medicine, we are all made up of all the elements. When you have even a basic understanding of how energy manifests in your body and life, you can learn to recognize where you are in and out of balance. By doing a few simple exercises with intention, attaining balance is possible!
You might often find that you’re drawn towards certain elements more than others. This might be because earth is your STRENGTH or it might be because you need a little somethin, somethin’ in that area of your life.
What does this say say about you?
When your earth element is expressing abundantly in your life you might experience more of these qualities than you’d like. You might also have chosen the earth element because you are craving more earth. Either way, it is helpful to have a basic understanding of how the elements are expressed and ways to bring them more into balance.
