Nature is the best example of what living in harmony means. She is always there for you, her health supports your own and her very existence is essential to life. The best way to appreciate these miraculous blessings is to live in your natural state of harmony.  

“Don't live by your own rules, but in harmony with nature.”  ~ Epictetus


Living in harmony with nature provides the earth element for creating heaven on earth. Being a source of light brings the fire element; having the ability to flow through life supports the water element; and breathing deeply enhances the air element. 

Your physical self is associated with the element of earth as it represents grounding and a foundation for life. Respecting the earth is respecting your own body because the two are deeply intertwined. You can live in harmony by remembering to be one with nature. 

Your mental self is associated with the element of fire. This element represents igniting your passions. When you’re lit up like the fiery sun you become a source of positive energy that generates an enthusiasm for life and a desire to live in harmony with nature. 

Your emotional self is associated with the element of water and represents flow. Dealing with a challenging problem is easier when you become as fluid as water. Allow your feelings to gently guide you until you arrive at a loving solution that creates harmony. 

Your spiritual self is associated with the element of air and represents the breath of life. With each inhalation you breathe in fresh oxygen, with every exhalation you breathe out stale carbon dioxide. Breathe deeply in nature to experience inner harmony.

A big part of living in harmony with nature depends on food choices. Every time you support organic, regenerative farming practices you are investing in a sustainable food supply that is good for the soil and contributes to the overall health of humanity.

The four elements of life form your true nature. When you connect with the elements of earth, fire, water and air you discover how easy it is to live in harmony with yourself and the physical world. Harmony naturally leads to health, happiness and inner peace. 

With love and light,
