UNDERSTANDING OUR CONNECTIVITY WITH NATURE
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are five elements that are integral to all life. These elements arise out of yin Qi and yang Qi. Yin and yang Qi represent the female and male energies from which all things in the universe are generated. Yin is dark, cool, moist and quiet. Yang is dry, hot and active. Yin is the moon, reflective and deep. Yang is the sun, bright and strong.
Neither yin nor yang are pure. That is why within the Yin-yang symbol, there is a dot of yin within the yang aspect and a dot of yang within the yin. They are mutually generating, and neither can exist without the other.
Both Yin Qi and Yang Qi, regulate all life on earth and reflect a deep understanding of natural law, the Universal order underlying all things in our world. They in turn give birth to the cosmic energy and it is this that manifest all existence. The combined Qi (the universal energy of life) undergoes five stages of transformation. The five stages of transformation are known as the elements. The five elements are –
These five Elements are energies in motion, they are not static and have two main fundamental relationships; generating and supporting. Each element corresponds to one of the five Yin and Yang activity stages and together, they form a repetitive cycle or pattern of Yin and Yang energy shown through the seasons, a natural cycle of growth and decay. These same energies are also reflected within our own bodies and personalities.
