A Short Blessing for the New Year

Dear Readers: Thank you so much for your enthusiastic support of this blog! I deeply appreciate your letters and comments (and shares), as well as the opportunity to explore with you the wisdom embodied in the Five Elements model. This deceptively simple model not only provides a window into the workings of the universe, it also helps us better understand ourselves and our relationships.

As we say goodbye to 2018, I once again offer you The Five Elements Blessing. As I have mentioned in this blog many times, while our personalities may reflect a specific element, we do have all five of the elements in our makeup. That means that the gifts of each element are ours to access as we need. May we honor these gifts equally in ourselves and others during 2019.


The Five Elements Blessing

I wish you the hope and optimism of Water:

May you always embody trust. 

I wish you the success and productivity of Wood:

May your accomplishments foster peace.

I wish you the joy and celebration of Fire:

May you be a source of inspiration to others. 

I wish you the caring and connection of Earth:

May you offer compassion to those in need. 

I wish you the knowledge and understanding of Metal:

May you provide wisdom to us all.


Happy New Year! Let’s make 2019 a year of joyful relationships, sweet love, and everlasting kindness!
