According to Chinese medicine, there are five aspects to our mental-emotional world. These are often called the Five Elements. Each Element influences how we think, feel and relate to the world in a different way.
The Metal Element enables us to recognise when something is valuable. Because it enables us to know what is precious, it also enables us to know what it is to lose that preciousness. By extension, the Metal Element allows us to feel that things have meaning, to experience loss, and to let go and move on.
