people embody the powerful seed energy of Winter. In the Winter
season, the energy is pulled into its most condensed state. When
all the vitality that creates such abundance through Spring, Summer
and Fall is focused into one place, it is naturally intensified.
Therefore you often know when a Fire element has walked into a room
simply by the intensity of their presence. Like the element
of fire in nature, you naturally pay attention to their presence.
elements are often initiators and natural leaders. Many of them
exude passion and exuberance in every movement, word and action.
They can put a high value on achievement and success and sometimes
rather blindly pursue their ambitions and goals. This kind of narrow
focus is what most often leads to imbalance in a Fire element's
life. When caught up in this mode they tend to put success above
everything else and believe that it will lead them to happiness.
Fire energy runs up and down the spine and gets
stored in the belly, including the sexual organs. The energy that
Fire elements put out is not necessarily sexual, but it definitely
has the powerful drive that we experience with sexuality.
Each of the elements presents a unique lesson.
The lesson of Fire energy revolves around the theme of power. Many
Fire elements are caught in a trap where they strive for the experience
of feeling powerful and unconsciously fear feeling powerless. Fire
is innately powerful, and when disconnected from a deep and integrated
place, it can be overpowering. Some Fire elements try to control
or contain their energy, but Fire energy is far too intense to hold
inside. The key with this element is to channel this strong energy
in a positive direction toward things that they feel passionate
about. When utilized in this way Fire elements have an incredible
ability to inspire others. The ability to inspire others is truly
a Fire elements greatest gift.
people have the passion and intensity of Fire and are drawn towards
the physical world. They usually like to work with their hands and
have an affinity for the outdoors. They can have a tendency to get
caught up in the acquisition of money, power or physical accumulation
but are most satisfied when they honor their deep connection to
the earth. They are often most comfortable interacting with others
when engaged in some sort of physical activity such as sports, construction,
love making, gardening or hiking. They like to be on the go and
can have a hard time slowing down except when in nature, where a
surprisingly centered and calm part of themselves is revealed.
people have the passion and intensity of Fire and are drawn
towards the emotional world. They tend to be people oriented
and can be very exuberant and charismatic. They are often incredible
performers and thrive on the emotional interplay between themselves
and the audience. They gravitate towards the dramatic and are
challenged to experience and be guided by true feelings rather
than getting caught up in the drama. They are usually more sensitive
than they outwardly appear and can try to hide this sensitivity
for it is in such contrast to the strength and confidence that
they portray in the outer world.
