The Water Element

Winter is a time when nature's energy slows down and moves inward. Animals hibernate, plants and vegetation move underground, and people tend to spend more time indoors and move about at a slower pace.

The Five Elements of Chinese Medicine, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water, are used to interpret and explain the flow of energy and relationship of our inner world (physical body) to our outer world (environment). In the northern hemisphere, winter began December 21 and will end March 20. This time period is also known as the season of the Water Element.

How does the Water Element affect us physically, emotionally and energetically?

The water element balances and process the emotion of fear. Healthy fear allows us to discern what is safe or unsafe in our environment. When out of balance, our fears may become more burdensome and heavy. People may feel more isolated, alone, and disconnected more than other times of the year. How does fear show up in life?
  • Paralyzing Fear - prevents taking action or moving forward in life
  • Inhibition - want to move forward but something "pulls us back"
  • Escape - avoiding or running from a situation or responsibility
  • Over Power - take control of a situation to avoid an unpleasant emotion
  • Retreat - recluse, withdraw from relationships, society, work, fun

The water element support our physical body:
  • Bones - strength, repair, growth
  • Knees and Feet - flexibility, strength, stability
  • Spine - supports the vertebrae and spinal nerves from the neck to low back
  • Muscles - dynamic hip muscles, rotator cuff, lower leg
  • Kidneys - cleanses the blood, recycles electrolytes (salts), maintains blood pressure

The water element supports us energetically:
  • Will power - find the energy and will to live (opposite of depression)
  • Take Action - move and propels us forward
  • Survival - recognizing resources that keep us alive and healthy
  • Sexuality and Sensuality - balance of male a female relationship energy
  • Stores Vital Energy - acts as a reserve for times of stress or illness

Water is unstructured, adaptable, powerful, healing and flows with purpose and direction. Water’s movement closely resembles the flow of energy in our body and how we navigate life. The season of the Water Element gives you an opportunity to regenerate and move in a positive direction nourishing your energetic, spiritual and physical well-being.
The Balance and Trust Hormones
In 1983 the heart was reclassified as an endocrine gland when researchers discovered a hormone produced and secreted by the atria heart. The hormone was given the name - atrial natriuretic factor (ANF), also known as "The Balance Hormone." ANF plays an important role in fluid and electrolyte balance, regulating blood pressure, kidneys and adrenal gland functions, and signaling homeostasis centers in the brain.

Recently, scientists have found the heart manufactures and secretes oxytocin, a chemical commonly is referred to as the "love or social or bonding hormone." In addition to its well-known function in childbirth and lactation, oxytocin has been shown to be involved in cognition, trust, friendship, and the establishment of enduring pair-bonds in humans and animals. It also supports the body-mind to considering beliefs and ideas that differ from ours without being critical or closed minded.

Animal Telepathy and Spiritual Essence

"The word ANIMAL comes from the Latin, ANIMA, which means life principle, breath, air, soul, living being. Recognition of the spiritual essence of animals and respecting them as fellow intelligent beings is vital to facilitate inter-species telepathic exchange. Animals are able to communicate with humans who are open to the telepathic connection. They get your intentions, emotions, images, or thoughts behind the words, even if the words themselves aren't totally understood.

Sometimes people think that when you can communicate with animals telepathically, they will be willing to do what you want. No, communication doesn’t equate to obedience. Animals are individuals with their own agendas in life. We can communicate with each other and still have different perceptions, different priorities, and different ideas about how things should be." - Penelope Smith, Animal Communicator

Emotional Regulation Success Story

"Anxiety permanently gone in one session"

"For years my driving anxiety was paralyzing! My heart would race, my chest would tighten, and I thought I would die! I had panic attacks as a driver and passenger. After ONE Emotional Regulation Session, I gained control over something that had control over me for more than three years. Today, I drive when and where I want, relaxed and with confidence. Thank you, Todd and Angela!"
Cindy Kennon - Lubbock, Texas

The video above was taken by me after my Emotional Regulation session. I was in the passenger seat while passing a fuel truck. Before, when riding as a passenger, I would hold my breath, close my eyes and lean away to the left as far as a I could, laying on the console. As you can see, I am calm and present as I video the event! - Cindy
