The Chinese Five Element Theory is used to understand the relationships between various natural phenomena, including the human body’s elements, seasons, colours, emotions, and organs. While the Five Element Theory is not directly associated with grief, it can provide deep insights into how grief may be related to specific elements and how they can affect our overall well-being. The role is to protect and keep us safe.
Like other intense emotions, grief can disrupt the flow of Qi and blood in the primary meridians. When excessive or prolonged grief can lead to energetic imbalances that may affect various aspects of health. Greif resides within the Metal Element consisting of the Lung and Large intestines meridian and has an intricate relationship with the Chi cycle and the body’s energetic processes.
When a person experiences grief, their emotional and physical well-being may be affected by imbalances in one or more of these elements. Kinesiology uses the Five Element Theory to assess these imbalances and tailor treatments accordingly. Energy flows clockwise through the meridians in two ways. Firstly, nurturing oneself is the bucket filler, so energy overflows and continues onward (yin energy). Secondly, by control. Switching off or holding back energy flow that may seem to intensify or overcharge (yang energy).
For example, acupressure, meridian massage, neurovascular points, herbal medicine, and dietary recommendations may be used to restore balance as well as address emotional distress caused by grief. It could be added to the body’s stomach or spleen meridian energy to nurture them physically and make it safe enough to address the grief or used to control the triple warmer/ small intestines meridian, preventing the grief energy from releasing and shifting within the body.
It’s important to note that grief is a complex and individualised experience, and not everyone will respond the same way or have the same elemental imbalances. The Chinese Five Element Theory can provide a holistic framework for understanding how emotional and physical aspects of grief are interconnected, but it is the Kinesiology that personalises and targets the holistic healing of the individual.
More examples of how grief can be expressed within the five elements: For individuals where the energy of grief is too painful, overwhelming or raw, they might be caught between a place of criticism, disappointment and bitterness, controlling feelings of anxiety, panic and courage. Alternatively, they might be stuck in a place of service, solitude and despair, pushing back any form of sweetness in life over the fear of stepping into and feeling grief.
Examples of emotions in each element are below:
- Wood Element and Anger: The Wood element is associated with growth and new beginnings. In the context of grief, it may manifest as anger and frustration over the loss or inability to prevent it.
- Fire Element and Joy: The Fire element represents joy and passion. It can reflect the love and cherished memories shared with the deceased during the grieving process.
- Earth Element and Overthinking: The Earth element symbolizes stability but can lead to overthinking and anxiety when imbalanced. Excessive worrying about the future or dwelling on the past can be related to grief.
- Metal Element and Sadness: The Metal element is tied to precision and clarity. Emotionally, it is closely related to grief and sadness daily during the mourning period.
- Water Element and Reflection: The Water element represents adaptability and deep reflection. It relates to the fear of uncertainty in life without the deceased.
