The Earth element is that season of late summer, or between seasons, which is all about our connection.
When we think of earth, we think of our groundedness, our presence to what is. In balance, Earth is content, grounded, present and connected, and it is the foundation for the other elements. It is nourished, both in body, soul and mind, and we are calm and loving, and free, feeling able to support others.
Out of balance, we instead become needy. When we are out of touch with our ever-present connectedness, we drop into the Earth element emotion of worry.
