READ MORE ABOUT THE EARTH ELEMENT…
Late Summer and early Fall is connected to the Earth Element a time of harvest and abundance in nature according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Earth element shows up in our body through the energy of the Spleen and Stomach Meridians, our digestive systems, our ability to give and receive nourishment and care from ourselves and others. The spirit level of the Earth element is called the Yi and is connected to our sense of intellect, our devotion to our life’s work, and our ability to manifest abundance in our lives. The Yi is likened to a humble gardener who stays connected to the divine inspiration of its souls purpose and is able to channel it into the daily tasks of tending to the garden, singing while he works as as to manifest bountifulness and abundance in the physical plane.
