I’m often asked “How do I re~balance or recenter or refocus myself?” And, my answer is always “That depends. Tell me more” We may feel off kilter and need to rebalance mentally, emotionally, spiritually or physically. And, sometimes, we need to rebalance in a few ways. So, my answer will depend. But, when I am asked this. I always suggest looking to one of the 4 elements for support. Focusing on the Air, Water, Fire and Earth elements allows you to clear away any blockage you have, connect with your inner wisdom and move out of imbalance into a place of peace and productivity.
Why Use the 4 elements to Refocus and Rebalance? Each of these represent a component of YOU. By tapping into the element that is associated with a blockage you are able to acknowledge it and release it. This will help you to refocus and rebalance your efforts. So, how do you do this?
