Space is more than a container, an empty vessel. It is the potential, the fertile ground from which phenomena arise; But it can become clouded, inaccessible. Then its integrative power can becomes chaos and lack of integration or harmony.
Healing Space allows us to re-access the wisdom of the body, the wisdom of nature. Space is the great integrator, the hub of the wheel of life. Through clearing and strengthening Space, the energy systems and hierarchies of the body-mind are made whole again.”
Space is not just the “empty” container of our lives. It is the canvas on which the other elements are painted, a dynamic and powerful force that allows the integration and harmonization of Earth, Water, Fire and Air. In harmony with Earth, it provides the hierarchy and relationship between different qualities and energies. Space is the wise mediator, the “mother” of all phenomena.
The body has no “empty spaces,” but one of the ways that Space expresses itself is in the cavities of body, such as the chest cavity, abdomen, skull, long bones and so on. This is where energy is condensed and stored; The more active the organ (heart for example), the greater the number of cavities that must enclose it. Space Element is the biological wisdom that oversees and coordinates all activity, with its complex sequences and hierarchy of needs.
At the center of the circular mandala of the 5 Elements, Space is like the “chairman of the board.” As the arbitrator, it is the male or female sage, the Guru, that coordinates the multiple, often contradictory impulses of thoughts, emotions and drives arising from the rest of our psychological Elements. Providing both judgment and conscience, Space Element is also the hidden secret of memory and the continuity of our identity.
