"...Among the four elements of Water, Fire, Earth and Wind/Air, water is the one that represents our emotional body. Mirrors and reflects reality through different dimensions. It is connected to all fluids of our body, our circulatory system and lymphatic system. It helps to communicate our emotions, feelings, to clear the past and go with the flow towards our future. Working with water patterns and colours help us to balance our Water element that leads to better communication of our real feelings, emotions and our real self. Also may help with depression and unpleasant emotional states. The lotus is an ancient symbol of purity of the body, speech and mind. It roots in the mud, but its blossom is floating on the surface of the water. It also represents detachment as water drops slide off its petals easily...."
