Themes of Metal
I’m sorry, I’m trying to think of the right word. Once we’ve gone through the, The process of deciding of, you know, assimilating our environment and deciding what is essential, what is not essential, those pieces that we actually keep and hold onto are very tangible. Those are like, are there tangible in the sense that they create flesh, but they’re also intangible in the sense that they create real true value in our lives. They’re like the gold or the diamonds. And of, of in a sense, you know, you could think about this, like the lessons that we’ve learned in our life or through whatever kind of iteration or story that we’ve been living. And then of course, we let go of the things that are not valuable to this can become skewed in the sense of it can get projected into material possessions when we don’t truly value you value ourself in our own experience, when we haven’t really extracted the essence of an experience of our lives, of who we are.
So it can get collapsed into that, into that material possession, but there can also be, and this is where we’re going to get into the next point, this sort of spiritual righteousness that can occur. And this is because, because there’s this whole relationship so deeply into bringing spirit and cosmos into our body, when there’s a glitch in that system, there can be a lot of, um, righteousness. And interestingly enough, I can’t remember if I said this or not, but the virtue associated with metal is honor, but really how that’s translated is actually righteousness usually in the texts. So there’s a real righteousness, a spiritual righteousness that can occur where people think that they are spiritually above other people. So there’s this kind of this pontification, this like dogma, this like righteousness, this, this is how it, how it is. And I figured this out and how come you haven’t figured this out yet? And so there can be a real teacher aspect to this, but in a way that’s kind of yucky, you know, where you’re like, you don’t have it all together. You’re not perfect. And perfection is one of the things with metals. So why don’t we just have a conversation instead of you trying to tell me what to do?
That’s a big part of metal. So there’s a hardening that occurs again through that whole processing. Um, and in terms of Creating some sort of substance in our value, again, there’s like this, this total paradox to metal and that the things that are actually substantial are totally in substantial. Like they actually don’t have any physical nature, but there can be a hardening. So when we’re out of sync again with that metal element and what that whole process of earthing, and oftentimes this is because there are things that we don’t actually want to bring into our body. We oftentimes out of trauma, let’s say, um, maybe it’s not safe to be in your body. Maybe it’s just too much. It’s too overwhelming. I don’t, I don’t know what’s gonna happen if I bring all of this in. So everything kind of like lives up here, like in the chest cavity, right in the lungs. So what happens is that, uh, when that stuff comes in, though, there’s a hardening that can occur.
And so there seems to be, um, a bit of this connection to, again, lumps and bumps in the sense of what it is that we have an integrated and assimilated that’s meant to be integrated and assimilated, according to divine purpose, according to the honor of the life, death life cycle, those things that we’re like still pushing away, maybe because there’s too much sadness, too much grief, maybe there’s resentment. There can be all sorts of things. Um, that it’s the metal element. That’s really responsible for that refining and hardening say, um, again, lump or a bump like a tumor or a cyst or something like that.
