You’ll benefit from metal element practices if you experience any of the below:

Bodymind Imbalances

  • Tendency to feel disconnected, isolated, or lonely
  • Prone to feeling bored, uninspired, apathetic, hopeless, or pessimistic
  • Experience prolonged grief, sadness, or depression
  • Lacking ability to let go mentally (rigid beliefs), emotionally (past relationships, conversations), physically (constipation, difficulty exhaling)
  • Feelings of worthlessness and deep insecurity
  • Prone to negativity or cynical, stuck, or stubborn beliefs and behavior
  • Hoarding things, thoughts, emotions, or memories

Physical Imbalances

  • Diarrhea, constipation, IBS, bloating, or flatulence
  • Sinus problems or nasal problems
  • Prone to colds
  • Skin problems, psoriasis, eczema, or dry skin
  • Body, breath or foot odor
  • Sighing, shallow or difficult breathing, Asthma, or Bronchitis
  • Pale skin
  • Mucous or dryness in your body
    Metal element practices address the lung and colon meridians in the physical and mental-emotional bodies and focus on toning the chest, shoulders, abdomen and lungs.
    This releases grief, apathy, insecurity, and loneliness — so you feel inspired and connected with the inherent worth in your essence and true Self as a vital part of the universe.
    Use the practices as you wish, as often and at whatever time of day you desire. They’ll help open your bodymind so you can take life in and let it go — and release metal-related tension so you can feel more inspired and confident in yourself and your role in life.

    How to Optimize Your Metal Practices

    1. It’s optimal to commit to the meditation, yoga practice, and/or EFT session — whichever most resonates with you — as a daily practice. Then you will feel more benefit, not just within and directly after the practice (because that is sure to happen) but for long term benefit that lasts.

    2. Learn more about the fire element and earth element at the links to ensure that you are balanced in both — the metal element relies on a strong foundation of both fire and earth. If you are imbalanced with fire or earth, couple the metal practices with either or both to ensure optimal benefit.

    3. You can also utilize this 90-minute Metal Element Yoga practice that’s supported with fire and earth elements.

          Metal Element Yin Yoga utilizes supported, passive yoga postures from Yin Yoga that address the lung and colon meridians and their corresponding connective tissue pathways, organs, and muscle groups. Yin is restorative and relaxing.

          This is a concise 30-minute practice designed for frequent use and is recommended for complete beginner to advanced yoga practitioners:

          • Through autumn months
          • When moving through a period of loss, lack of inspiration or connection to Self or others, or desiring a deeper sense of Self and soul
          • Anytime of year if struggling with chronic grief, hopelessness, insecurity, isolation, loneliness, negativity, an inability to let go of things, thoughts, emotions, or the past, or any physical health problems with the respiratory system or colon

          Emotional Freedom Technique is an evidence-based method that integrates aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy with tapping specific Acupuncture points on the body. EFT improves the resting heart rate, blood pressure, cortisol levels, immune function as well as learning and attention capacities. It is clinically proven to reduce anxiety, PTSD, phobias, and depression.

          The EFT practice provided here is created to help release grief, insecurity and loneliness by deepening trust in yourself, your body, and all that arises through the process of letting go — so you can relax into acceptance while creating space for new possibilities.

          The metal element comes from five-element theory that is foundational in Traditional Eastern Medicines of China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam. It is associated with specific meridians and connective tissue pathways that run throughout the physical body and their correlation to the mental-emotional bodies.

          The guided meditation activates the lymphatic and parasympathetic nervous systems to improve digestion and consciously increases lung capacity. It ends with affirmations related to supporting the metal element. It is optional to do the meditation in a deeply restorative and detoxifying Yin Yoga posture. This is guided in a brief video separate from the meditation.

          This guide gives you practical dietary dos and don’ts specific to the metal element, lungs, and colon rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, macrobiotics, and plant-based holistic nutrition.

          You receive simple ways to utilize herbs and spices already in your kitchen (or easily accessible) and fundamental tools to strengthen your gut microbiome as a foundation for thriving nutrition in your holistic lifestyle.

          If you’re new to yoga, yes.

          While the Yang practice is more appropriate for advanced beginners up, if you’re a complete beginner you can give it a try—it is only 15-minutes of active yoga—and see if you want to stick with it. You will also get stronger as you utilize the other practices in this package. They will prime you for the Yang Yoga!

          The Yin Yoga is for complete beginners up, so yes, please use it!

          Yes. The metal-focused practices can help with fatigue that develops from deep insecurity, grief, apathy or loneliness by creating a deeper connection to your essense. If fatigued or exhausted, opt for the Yin Yoga, EFT, meditation, and incorporating dietary and herbal considerations into your lifestyle. As you get stronger (be patient with yourself), the yang practice will become more accessible as well.

          If you’re experienced with yoga, yes.

          The Yin & Yang Yoga practices specifically tone the chest, shoulders, abdomen, and lungs. Neither is made for exercise per say or practicing advanced postures. Their aim is to give you the tools to practice daily or as consistently as possible so you can both deeply strengthen and restore.

          Refining the Metal Element:

          Your Role within the Whole

          ​​The journey of living and expressing your “authentic” Self — indeed the Self with a capital S that is also soul and source —  is walking a path of releasing all that you are not. The path of self-discovery is as much learning as it is unlearning. It is accepting the inevitability of change and letting go.

          Letting go of past iterations of Self. Letting go of constricting social norms. Letting go of old identities and activities that once fulfilled but no longer do. Letting go of beliefs, behaviors, and social systems formed by trauma within this lifetime and trauma handed to us from past generations.

          When unable to let go or in fear of letting life in, we hold ourselves separate from our true essence, soul, God, universe, source. We then continue through the five phases divided from our essence — maybe taking creative and decisive action, perhaps surrounded in relationship. Yet we may feel empty, angry, stressed, sad, or worried… because all of that manifestation isn’t aligned with who we really are.

          (Un)consciously holding ourselves, and together the collective, in outdated patterns.

          This separation from Self — and ultimately from life itself — creates a sense of isolation, loneliness, and profound insecurity that relies on external validation for an illusion of worthiness derived from income, status, identity, profession, possessions, or relationships.

          Letting life in and letting go is the only way to discover the depths of who we truly are. Through the cycle of each day, each year, and season of life, we create, bear fruit, harvest, and return to the autumn phase that is the metal element: gleaning meaning and growth from the process and discarding identities, thoughts, beliefs, habits, belongings, relationships — emptying the unnecessary cache of our bodymind and life — excavating an even deeper expression of our true essence.

          Alchemizing and refining the experience of Self.

          This is the natural cycle of life. This is the return, and allowance, of the death of ourselves and what has been because in the embrace of death, we create space for new.

          The deeper our exhale, the deeper our inhale. The more capacity for breathing, the more space for the beauty of life to fulfill us. The more thoroughly the colon releases toxic waste matter, the more room for it to accept nutrients that nourish the rest of the body.

          We only experience as profound joy, love, and fulfillment as we welcome the full range of emotions:

          The sorrow felt in the loss of that and those we’ve loved — because we have the courage to love deeply. The grief in letting go of relationships, jobs, foods or drinks that once suited us — because we have the courage to face the unknown.

          We create space for ourselves to take new form that’s aligned with deeper discovery of Self and conscious creation within the ever-changing world.

          And in embracing the depths of Self, discovered through the process of letting go, we create the space to let life in full embrace of our true Self and each other that’s naturally, and inherently, aligned with our planet.
