A New Year Blessing from the Five Elements

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

As we say goodbye to 2017, I offer you The Five Elements Blessing. May we honor the gifts of each element equally in ourselves, and others, during 2018.


The Five Elements Blessing

 I wish you the hope and optimism of Water:

May you bring truth to the people in your life.

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 surrounded by inspiration. 

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 the wisdom of the past to the future.


Happy New Year! Let’s make it a year of fulfilling relationships, love, and kindness for all!
