Wu Xing is the traditional theory of universal movement, cycles, chi energy, and creation processes in nature and man. The 5 Chinese elements associated with these processes are Wood, Fire, Earth Metal, and Water. This system of mapping energy flow and phases of matter is used in many common systems such as Feng Shui, Bagua Charts, Chinese Astrology, and even healing practices. It is a constant process of expansion and contraction that together create the physical world around us and govern all cycles. The 5 elements are associated with not only the regular physical elements of the same name, but also with planets, internal organs, electromagnetic forces, and more…based on the physical and energetic properties of each associated thing.
Energy from the Galaxy and all center points within, project into reality and solidify according to specific rates of vibrations, and interactions with other energy and matter. The fundamental forms of energy that permeate all of the cosmos manifests into distinct forms, and in particular cycles. Due to the fractal nature of the universe, these energies work on all levels in harmony to create one perfect system. Learning how the cycles and the various forms of energy work, helps to understand not only the true nature of reality, but also the inner working of humans and our organism. A health issue with an organ that is associated with the water element, may be healed by purifying the fluids in the body, and overactive fire organ may be healed by cooling the system by various means. Seasons and months even have their associated elements.
