Ask Vicki: Relationship Advice Using the Five Elements

A Five Elements Blessing for the New Year

Dear Readers: Thank you so much for your enthusiastic support of this blog. I deeply appreciate your letters and comments (and shares), as well as the opportunity to explore with you the wisdom embodied in the Five Elements model. This deceptively simple model not only provides a window into the workings of the universe, it also helps us better understand ourselves, the people in our lives, and our relationships.

As we say goodbye to 2021, I once again offer you The Five Elements Blessing. As I have mentioned in this blog many times, while we may each reflect a dominant elemental personality, we do have all five of these elemental personalities in our makeup. That means that the gifts each element has to offer are ours to access as we need. May we honor these gifts equally in ourselves and others.

The Five Elements Blessing 

I wish you the hope and optimism of Water:

Happy New Year! Let’s make 2022 a year of solid relationships, healing at every level, and everlasting kindness.
