Water Element.

Water Personality:

You are enigmatic and fluid. As Bruce Lee states “Be like water”. Those strongly influenced by the water element are clever, articulate, introspective, you seek knowledge and love to understand the working of the universe and life. Your superpower is you know you’ve been here before old soul.

Water Balance:

You are all about going with flow – literally. You preference flow rather than confinement and structure. When you are in balance you move like water! Adaptable, present, buoyant and your thoughts and energy run deep. Your constitution is strong! Your essence is in flow and your 3 treasures align you to fulfil your dreams! 

Water Imbalance:

The emotion of the kidneys is fear and Urinary Bladder is control. You can become anxious, exhausted and controlling. Prolonged fear and anxiety lead to isolation and phobic fears. You detach from life and the water element becomes frozen. 

In Chinese medicine, the kidney essence must be conserved! As it is with us for life. When we are lacking in rest, quiet, and inner solitude, it is easier to ‘leak’ our precious kidney essence. Kidney essence is the foundation for all yin and yang energies of the body! Kidney energy relates to your drive to live and the willpower to fulfil your goals and dreams. YES!
