People have a strong connection with nature and with the world around them. Sometimes moods change as the weather changes or when you eat certain foods because your body knows what you need and what you are putting into it.
The body is made of a lot of the elements, especially water and that helps us to connect with the universe.
Connecting with the Universe
Ayurvedic traditions tell you that the elements of water, earth, fire, air and earth make up everything around you. The elements work with your body and outside of your body. We are all our own person and have our own personality and this will depend on how we interact with the universe. The way that you create time to spend with the world around you can help you to see who you are and what you are made of.
The connection that you have with the elements helps you to learn from nature and who you are. You can look at moments through your life and see what elements were there. When it is hot out, you see that you want to do things such as swim or when the air is warm, you want to find a way to cool down or you sweat. The fire element shows you that you want to be warm and that you have strong energy towards the warmth. Some people like to burn candles because of this.
Being mindful in your life can help you to be strong and not to get overwhelmed. Fire can come and it is an element that helps you to create balance when you have water. As you understand balance of elements, you will see that they bring peace and harmony to you.
