Just as flowers are born in the Spring and the Earth wakes up from a long winter slumber, the power to give birth and to have rapid growth is found in the Wood Element. To understand what an amazing power this is, one only need trace the birth of a flower to the insect that pollinates it to begin to understand that once born, this flower is part of a much larger circle of life. The Wood element helps us give birth to ideas, thoughts, and emotion and is where we get our creative genius from. In the body, Wood is manifested in the Liver and Gall Bladder. Involved in planning and decision-making, the Liver and Gall bladder give us our gifts of vision, foresight, and planning.
