In Chinese philosophy, The Five Elements are also known as Wu Xing. are considered the foundation of everything in the universe and all natural phenomena. They generate and destroy each other in a particular order and each one carries specific virtue, character qualities and physical effects.
The Five Elements are metal, wood, water, fire and earth. The generative cycle is: Metal generates water, water nourishes wood, wood feeds fire, fire creates earth/ash, earth bears metal.
The destructive cycle is: Fire melts metal, metal chops wood, wood break up earth, earth absorbs water, water quenches fire.
The virtues that each element produces are as follows: Wood-Benevolence, Fire-Propriety, Metal-Righteousness, Water-Wisdom, Earth-Fidelity.
The quantity and expression of each element determines the character of the person as well as their physical and mental health. The Wood in the person is traditionally believed to create one’s faith-if they are going to be lowly or noble. It also gives expressions such as-flourishing, blooming, brilliant, etc. Fire will determine one’s strength or softness and one’s bravery, influence and intensity. Metal is responsible for the life span, longevity, dangers and difficulties. Water is responsible for talent, being wise or not, represents the mind, brings accuracy. Earth determines the status-if one is going to be rich or poor. It represents the birth and growth or things.
In the physical body the elements are responsible for different organs. Metal rules the lungs, large intestine, nose and the spicy taste. Wood rules the liver, gall bladder, eyes and the taste sour. Water rules the kidneys, urinary bladder,ears and the salty taste. Fire rules the heart, small intestine, tongue and the taste bitter.
The Elements also have corresponding emotions and each emotions determines the health of the organ related to it: Happiness-heart; Anger-liver; Worry-spleen; Panic-kidney; Sadness-lung. Negative emotions can damage the corresponding organ.
