Water is one of the elements in ancient Greek philosophy, in the Asian Indian system Panchamahabhuta, and in the Chinese cosmological and physiological system Wu Xing. In contemporary esoteric traditions, it is commonly associated with the qualities of emotion and intuition. Water, together with Wind, Earth and Fire is one of the four known basic Elements, which represent the substance of the world . Water in its physical form is needed to live as one must drink or absorb in a way some form of it, as life – be it plant, animal or sentient life – seems to depend to a large degree on this el ement in order to survive. Water is often associated with emotions, art, time and especially healing and philosophy. The power of the energy of Water, can be felt by tasting pure spring water, moving you hand through a stream, lake, pool, or bowl full of water. You can feel its cool liquidity; it’s soft and loving touch, this motion and fluidity is the quality of Air within Water. This Water energy, is also contained within ourselves, our bodies being mostly composed of Water.
