Anything that is stable and solid can be represented as a form of earth. The nourishing solid food items that we ingest are from earth. Earth represents strength, durability, firmness and might. The muscles, tissues, bones, hair, fat, skin, cells, nails and teeth of the human body are governed by this dominant element.
Attributes: Mentally, earth stands for braveness, steadiness, vigor, constancy and the attributes of a warrior at heart, essential for a healthy and hearty life filled with challenges.
When our earth element is healthy: We feel supported by existence, and generally feel confident, at ease and comfortable with life. We cultivate true purpose.
When our earth element is out of balance: We feel ungrounded, uprooted, never satisfied, always in doubt, and do not trust ourselves. We have obsessive thoughts and repetitive thought patterns.
