We are Her. And She is us. Each of us is made out of the five elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether. Each of us has been created with our own unique combination. Some of us have very little of certain elements; others of us have more. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian medicine system, sees it as Mother Earth’s gifts to us. She makes us in the combination that will best suit our journey for this lifetime.
My favourite place to sync in with all the elements is walking on the beach barefoot in the water with a gentle breeze at sunrise or sunset. Feeling the earth and water under my feet; the air and sun touching my skin and the ether in and around me, somehow I feel as if my body recalibrates to her innate combination.
Today’s challenge - and the last of the series - is to contemplate your relationship to each of the elements. Do you know them Which feels greater or lesser in you than others How do you keep in balance Where do you feel most in balance.
To those who have joined in, thank you for taking up the seven day challenge. I hope you discovered at least one new practice or idea to help you create a deeper relationship with the earth we are part of 🙏🏻❤️.
