Within Five element philosophy the Earth and Water element have a special connection. There are 2 cycles within the philosophy, there is the creative cycle which moves from one element to the next and the control cycle which links across the cycle to every other element. These 2 cycles work together to make the whole 'map' dynamic and interdependent.
Within the control cycle Earth controls and holds Water. We can see this within nature in how the soil soaks up the water, holds the banks of the rivers and forms the borders between the land and the ocean. Within our 'Earth', our bodies, we experience it within our lymphatic system, the cleansing rivers and streams of our body, the fluid held within our 70 trillion cells and the fluid that bathes our cells. How well our body holds and uses Water is directly linked to our Earth element.
Ways we can support our Earth-body is to make sure we stay hydrated so we don't create a dry plant pot effect i.e. suddenly realising you haven't drunk any water and necking a half pint, only to need a pee 15 minutes later, in other words the water has just passed through the body rather than been absorbed by the body.
Anyway lovely ones, have a fab day and make sure you keep your 'Earth-body' happy and hydrated lots of love Carol xxx
