The five elements begin with the Element of Wood, which is usually the year’s starting point.
Wood is also associated with the spring season, which begins in February and lasts through April.
Wood is indisputably linked to trees and all other types of plants on the planet. As a result, anything from seaweed to grass to trees and daffodils might be included in this category.
Wood is linked to the wind, which is strongest in the spring. In the spring, everything begins to develop anew after the long winter slumber, and this is marked by vibrant, flourishing growth that literally springs forth. It’s the time of year when seeds placed in the ground begin to open up and send forth shoots in all directions. When a baby is born, it symbolizes it. In this way, Wood embodies the attributes that we observe in the flora and in the changing seasons of spring.
This indicates that human conduct can be characterized by the Wood-type traits of flexibility, gentleness, expansion, resilience, growth, and so forth.
This was also recognized by the ancients, who linked the liver and gall bladder to the element of wood. To put it another way, a person who has an unbalanced liver (the primary wood organ) is more likely to be resistant to change, behaving like the proverbial “stick in the mud.” As a result, they are prone to rigidity, irritability, nervousness, as well as rage.
It’s at this point that liver disease can begin to take hold if people don’t make the necessary changes in their diet and lifestyle.
Liver blockages and weakness can cause eye problems, nail problems, sinew, and ligament problems, liver diseases like Jaundice, twitching and sharp headaches), the right side of the body can have problems, problems and pain will move around the body like wind, and they will generally be experiencing a lack of flow in their daily lives.
Doctors used to describe people who were easily irritated as “liverish” in the past, so you can see that these observations weren’t just made by eastern peoples, but it was in this region that they developed a complex understanding that helps us today through energy healing and other methods of natural healing to cure our ills and bad traits.
