The season that we associate with the Fire Element is Summer time. Think the hottest time of the year with its blazing hot sun and long days filled with light. Fire is symbolic of the ultimate Yang at its peak of energy. Energy moves outwards, expanding and radiating.
Fire energy is associated with:
- Excitement and Responsiveness
- Movement and Relaxation
The central function of Fire lies within the space of the heart. The heart is the place of our conscious awareness known as Shen. The Shen is the connection between Heaven and Earth. With the Shen residing in the Heart it becomes possible to view every human being as a conduit between both Heaven and Earth.
