Do you know what element suits you most? I believe for me it is water, the sea. As you might know, I have been a sailor for 25 years and I now live in a camper van. Every time I find myself a place for the night, it is next to the water.

What cleanses me, feeds me, lifts me up, and inspires me. It makes my cells bubbly, like Champagne.

In kinesiology, we work with the 5 Chinese elements: Water, wood, fire, earth, and metal.

All life comes from water. It is the beginning and the end. The Alpha and the Omega. From the water, wood grows. It gives us the power to start new things and get out of bed in the morning. The wood feeds the fire. It is here that our love, our passion, our hearts’ desires set to flame. The ashes feed the earth and make it fertile. On earth, we calm down and harvest. Metal makes us go inside. Let go of the old and inspires us for the new, which then again is born in water.

By taking in the description of the 5 elements, you may know which element you need more of. Go out in nature and find it. You will feel balanced, happy, regenerated.

It is from this loving feeling that you rise in your vibration and good stuff can get to you.

Take care of yourself and your loved ones and be out in nature. It provides for you.

Love, Merel
