Fire... the power of Inspiration ....... (the Intuition)
"When desire is silenced
and the will comes to rest
the world as idea becomes manifest." taoist poem
Fire is light, energy moving outward from the source, the energy of inspiration, guidance and connection to spirit. The spirit fire within the heart leads us forward to the things that we are here to express and experience.
Our inner fire is our inner light, our inner spirit and the intuitive knower within. It is the keeper of the life purpose, the clarifying intelligence of love, and the warmth of the heart.
When our inner fire becomes challenged or dimmed we tend to lose our way and feel out of focus and blocked from the creative source. Obscure emotional circumstances can produce undesirable manifestations on all levels, physical, emotional, and mental. A general loss of passion for things, or a depressed monotone way, sets it. To ignite this fire and to revive passion for life brings great benefits across the board.
Fire: Compassionate, joyful, passionate, enthusiastic, respectful, patient, loving, forgiving
Yin organ: Heart, cardiovascular, endocrine system
Yang organ: Small Intestine, triple burner, sexual center
Positive: Intuitive, conscious, communicative, considerate
Negative: Impatient, insensitive, cynical, cruel, spiteful, hateful, hasty
The following is a guide for wellness based on igniting the fire within each element.
Fire + Fire
The fire of continued illumination brings the benefit of inner good, which illuminates itself, and thereby illuminates the world. That which is bright rising twice indicates the passage of time, the rising and setting of the sun and of days following days. This is the art of spiritual guidance toward oneness through conceptual leadership.
Fire + Metal
The striking of the bell, the pluck of the string; this vibrant communication from the creative manifests itself as music.
Fire + Water
The power of harnessing all that came before it into the present moment, the full release of potential into expression, this is the arts. It is any form of painting, drawing, or sculpture, as well as any expression of higher self that becomes manifest in physical form.
Fire + Wood
The clarification and release of the electromagnetic and intelligent forces that are stored in living matter are expressions of this combination. It is the design and creation of the language arts; it is poetry and writing from the most creative to the most exact.
Fire + Earth
All manifested innovation relating to provision come from this combination, including culinary arts, land development, architecture, farming and the raising of livestock. The keeping of animals and the nurturing of family are all related forms of the qualities of the earth-fire relationship.
Bring the light of consciousness to the place and let the chi do the rest.
