Powerful forces, rhythms, and cycles are evident in nature all around us. Over 3,000 years ago, Chinese scholars began to study, observe, and research these influences. What is now commonly known as the five elements system recognizes that the same patterns that affect seasons, time of day, stages of life, etc., also impart specific tendencies in our individual personalities, attitudes, health, and life choices.
The foundations of this ancient wisdom led to the development of acupuncture, feng shui, and qigong, and the recognition of yin and yang qualities. Treasures of Your Soul utilizes this same knowledge of patterns and order in the universe through face reading and Nine Star Ki, to help clients discover and understand how and why these five elements impact them.
Each of us has a bit of all of the elements in our beings, but it is common for certain influences to be stronger than others. Helping people to learn about their own natural inclinations – and how to keep them in healthy balance – is a cornerstone of Kay’s work. It is a fascinating and complex body of knowledge that can help to illuminate your purpose and plan.
