The Metal element is all about taking in and letting go – the part of the cycle associated with grief, but also with the death of all that we think we are, and the reconnection to our true, grounded, connected nature.
This element almost ties together all of the elements in a beautiful reminder that all we desire to be, we already are, but we forget this as we move through the cycles of life.
The Metal element is all about inspiration; about taking an expansive breath! In balance, we can inhale and exhale fully, in trust that the next breath will naturally come, just as life intended. We trust the process of grief, learning from each experience and gaining wisdom, trusting in life’s flow. It is the season of Autumn; change. The imbalanced emotion of Metal is grief, and lack of trust in letting go.
