With this new self-guided system of personal transformation you can predict and overcome pitfalls that hold you back.
Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. These five elements naturally occur in our physical environment and are the building blocks of how all things grow and transform. Understanding the elements and how they interact reveals exactly how a seed becomes a tree, how a child becomes an adult and even how we each fall into deep and wonderful love.
Once you discover the five elements, you’ll begin to see how they determine your thoughts, motivations, strengths and challenges for yourself. They reveal the reasons behind why you feel uncomfortable around some people in a room and completely at ease around others.
When you understand your elemental makeup and that of the people in your life, every relationship becomes clear. This realization can lead to increased happiness, reduced anxiety, being secure in who you are, feeling confident, loving and compassionate.
Author, Carey Davidson demonstrates that each of these five elements corresponds to personality types. Inside all of us is a unique blend of these personality archetypes, and understanding the meaning behind each will guide you to living a more enriched and fulfilling life.
“A full and successful life begins with self-knowledge. I wrote The Five Archetypes to help
you grow into the amazing person you were put on this earth to become.”
