Ancient Chinese legends describe the world, as well as the entire universe, being tied together by five elements: Water, metal, earth, fire, and wood.
Without a balance with all five elements, chaos is free to do whatever it wants. We must treat ourselves the same way as the five elements are since they are the essential building blocks for our world and many others scattered throughout the heavens.
However, as humans, we only have either one or two of the elements that are much more prominent than the others are. Each element is able to describe certain details about your personality that would otherwise be hidden.
1. Elemental Water
As a person who relates to the element of water more so than the other four elements, you carry a lot of weight on your shoulders from how much knowledge you have obtained over the years.
Like water, you seek to be the gentle stream that carves out canyons, forming some of the worlds greatest masterpieces with little to no effort as you demonstrate all of the necessary steps required in order for you and others to achieve success.
You care deeply about those around you, have a very detailed opinion when it comes to giving advice to others about what’s best for them, and you do everything in your power to make sure that balance is in order.
2. Elemental Metal
Just as metal acts to be the necessary support for a majority of the things on earth as well as the rest of the universe, you seek the same kind of stability.
You are a person who cannot deal without structure in your life and prefer others to have a pretty good idea as to what they want, where they’re headed, and what they plan to do once they get there.
You are very calm, hard to anger, and you act well under pressure whenever the circumstances get a bit difficult. You never fall, for you are the pillar of this life and many others that you care for.
3. Elemental Earth
Those who are much more prominent with the element of earth, you are constantly seeking to bring peace to the world around you.
This makes you one of the most amazing problem solvers as you are very reliable, steady, and your relentless need for unity makes you one of the best natural born leaders.
Not everyone has as much insight as you do when it comes to dealing with emotions and you do not take other people’s troubles lightly simply because of how empathetic you are towards everyone.
Just as the earth does, you will never stop trying to be the peacekeeper you know you can be.
4. Elemental Fire
As a person who associates themselves with the element of fire, you are a person who is driven with the things that you are most passionate about in the world.
There is nothing that can stand in your way, especially when you want it bad enough, you’ll do anything it takes to achieve success.
Sometimes you can be a little bit unstable, bit this is more than okay since you are always taking your failures as a hard lesson.
Your personality is extremely contagious and it shows whenever you go out with a group of friends or to a party. You really do bring the whole room together and encourage others to fight for the things they believe in.
5. Elemental Wood
Those that relate to the element of wood are usually the people who crave adventure and never truly stop wandering the world as to find all of it’s grandest mysteries to discover.
Even though they are somewhat competitive in reaching their goals faster than others, they still like to enjoy the journey for what it is.
These brave travelers know just what to do whenever adversity rears it’s ugly head and they aren’t going to stop for anything minor like spilled milk.
To these wanderers, just keep moving forward so that you aren’t dwelling on the past so much and finally allow yourself make new memories for the future!
