Whether in a class, podcast or conversation, it seems that some teachings continue to bubble up again and again. When this happens, I find myself creating visuals to integrate the wisdom being offered. Recently the gifts have appeared as the 5 elements in Ayurveda, these qualities that form the building blocks of nature. I find that a greater understanding of the elements is a portal into bringing balance into my body, mind, spirit and environment.
When I'm feeling flighty, overwhelmed or overworked I'm more aware of how air and ether elements having come out of balance. The invitation arises to reorient to solid ground by returning to a more consistent routine, slowing way down and digging in the dirt.
