Lord RN, CMT
WE CONTINUE OUR SERIES ON THE ELEMENTS…
Wood gives us the sense of flexibility and ability to change necessarily for survival. The Wood element within us governs our sense of vision. The Wood provides the connection between yin and yang. As we develop, the Wood provides the coordination for successful and orderly growth and expansion, the orderly procession through time into the future.
Wood is also associated with beginning of new life.
The Wood element is in the position of the East, which relates to the morning and the sunrise. The rising sun bursts upon the day and reveals through its light, the truth. The change from darkness to light is the birth of Yang and reflects the essence of the Wood.
Wood regenerates each spring when the trees and plants send out new growth. Wood has the ability to mature and age appropriately, in a well rooted manner.
Wood is also associated with Wind, which can burst through and overcome obstacles. The wind can be sudden and violent, unpredictable and destructive. At the same time, wind carries the seeds of life and engenders new life and structure. The wind penetrates and overwhelms or gently massages with the breeze.
Evolution, adaptability, balance and order are integral to Wood. Resilience and the ability to move with the wind are Wood.
