What Does it Mean to be Fragile?

By Rhiannon Griffiths

I was talking with one of my gorgeous patients in clinic at the beginning of the week + the topic of being “fragile” came up…
.
.
It’s funny the things we tell ourselves – we shouldn’t be fragile, we shouldn’t feel like we need care or support, we shouldn’t be cross, we shouldn’t need love, we shouldn’t care what others think of us, we shouldn’t feel fear…
.
.
We tell ourselves we should be stronger, we should be “better than that”, we should be different, we should be more like other people…
.
.
But why shouldn’t you be fragile? Why shouldn’t you be whatever it is you are telling yourself you SHOULDN’T be? What are you making it mean?
.
.
I told my patient that being or feeling fragile (because the two aren’t always the same thing), doesn’t make you any less amazing, any less beautiful, any less special or actually any less STRONG…
.
.
When we think of the most exquisite bone china, or the most stunning of orchids, we don’t dismiss them purely because they need a little more care or they need handling slightly more gently…
.
.
Yes an orchid might not thrive if it is planted outdoors in the Winter snow, but if we KNOW + understand that, if we know + understand what it needs to blossom + bloom (i.e. light + warmth + care + gentleness), it’s FULL BEAUTY can come out…
.
.
And this can happen for YOU when you know + understand YOUR ELEMENT – or when you have me by your side, to help you understand it + reframe some things for you!
.
.
Sign up for the EMBRACE YOUR ELEMENT INTENSIVE day, so we can spend a whole day together doing EXACTLY this kind of transformational coaching together!

As a Five Element Acupuncturist, I See You

By Rhiannon Griffiths

I see you. One of my most treasured gifts as a Five Element acupuncturist, is that I can SEE you…
.
.
And I don’t just mean with my big-ol’ cat eyes, I mean with my intuition, with my feelings, with the wisdom of this ancient medicine that is my absolute raison d’être…
.
.
I see the stuff that is unsaid + unseen. I see the stuff that is underneath the mask, underneath the outside layer, underneath the “everything’s-ok-honestly”… I see the deeper stuff…
.
.
I see your challenges, I see your struggles + I understand.
.
.
I see your strengths, I see your authenticity + I will celebrate them.
.
.
I see your powers, I see your potential + I will encourage you to use them.
.
.
I see you, whatever your Element is, whoever you are, I see you.
.
.
I see YOU, the true you, + I will hold sacred space for you.
.
.
Because after all, many of us have spent years + years feeling different, unsupported, misunderstood, not good enough, not held, not accepted, not witnessed, not seen…
.
.
Not FULLY seen as the beautiful souls that we are, in our authenticity, in our Element – for all of our strength, our quirks, our differences – not seen as our truest selves by the world (+ people) around us…
.
.
I see you in all your true, authentic amazingness – I absolutely SEE YOU my friend…
.
.
“Embrace Your Element” is my online, transformational coaching course, that runs twice a year, where I see you + guide you over 9 weeks towards life-changing self-acceptance, through understanding yourself through the lens of your particular dominant Elemrnt personality type…
.
.
And I now, for a limited time, I am offering a one day EMBRACE YOUR ELEMENT INTENSIVE version – it is you + me, one whole day, your Element, + huge changes! Take the opportunity to spend time with me 1-1, where I will hold space for you, witness your true essence, + truly SEE you as the magnificent soul that you are, to create some crazy amazing shifts + transformations! See all the details HERE.

Transformation is my Middle Name

By Rhiannon Griffiths

This week has been a big one energies wise + astrologically… Venus has gone retrograde in Scorpio, the new moon in Libra FEELS as though it was in Scorpio due to its square to Pluto (Scorp’s ruling planet)…
.
.
Ultimately this means transformation, transformation, transformation… And the focus of this transformation right now is in relationships – with others, but perhaps more importantly, also with OURSELVES…
.
.
I am Scorpio with Scorpio rising, plus I have a whole heap of other stuff in Scorpio too, including Venus! So yeah, now is intense!
.
.
My friend + astrologer, Natalie Delahaye, said to me at the start of this year, that the movement of Pluto in my chart would highlight the shamanic-like, deep energetic work I do… Transforming people’s ways of thinking, giving people new ways of seeing things, writing, expressing + guiding others to a new way of meeting the world…
.
.
And ultimately, this is why I do what I do – delving deep with my acupuncture patients, my coaching clients, + anyone going through my online courses – bringing depth, healing, transformation + rebirth on all levels (hello Scorp + Pluto)…
.
.
I’m not going to lie, sometimes this can be uncomfortable, but oh my goodness, I will hold that sacred space for you, hold your hand when things get scary + support you in coming out the other side, finding your amazing breakthrough + your beautiful transformation!
.
.
It is exactly what I am MADE to do + I have something exciting for you, coming next week, so we can get YOU some life-changing insight into the relationship you have with yourself + the world around you… And what better time to do this stuff, than when Venus is retrograde in Scorpio?!
.
.
But for now, have you seen my transformational online coaching course, “Embrace Your Element – 9 Weeks to Life Changing Self Acceptance”? See how you could benefit from understanding yourself through the Five Elements HERE

This is the Key Element to Unlock Self Acceptance

By Rhiannon Griffiths

.

.

Knowing your Element is the key to deep levels of self-understanding and self-acceptance. If you have seen some of my other videos, you will know that in Chinese Medicine we have the Five Elements – Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood…

.

As they are in nature, they are also reflected in our bodies – if they are in balance, we have health on every level,but if they are unbalanced or out of flow, we get illness, stress, blocks, stagnation, and dis-ease…

.

But in traditional Five Element acupuncture we take that one step further by realising that everyone has a resonance to one particular Element out of the Five – the one that is like our default setting, the one that shows itself the most in everything we do – our emotions, behaviours and patterns in life…

.

And in THIS video I want to explain why this ancient Chinese Medicine theory, and personality type framework, REALLY is the KEY part, the key Element (if you’ll pardon the pun!), to self acceptance and deep understanding of self… it is the reason my chapter in the book our co-authored book, “The Pay it Forward Series: Notes to my Younger Self – Volume 1”, has this title…

.

In it I talk about my journey with the Five Elements up to now, and tell my 14 year old self how all the challenges and emotions and fears she faces have their basis in the Water Element – the themes she has in her life at 14, the questions that she has no answers to, the difficulties she has in accepting and LOVING her true self… Everything is, or was, and STILL is (for me), BASED in the Water Element, and the fact I am a Water Element personality type, it is my constitutional energy, it is the one Element I resonate most with out of the Five (with Fire being my close second!), and the one that shows itself the most in my life…

.

Understanding YOURSELF on this deeper level allows us to let go of being super hard on ourselves, allows us to let go of the inner critic, allows us to SEE more clearly WHY certain themes keep repeating themselves in our lives… The Five Elements allows us to see that there is NOTHING wrong with us, we are not freaks or weirdos for feeling certain things, or struggling with certain things, or being DIFFERENT from other people – it is ALL just in our Element and that is ok…

.

Your Element gives you PERMISSION to ACCEPT your true self, and BE your true self… Your Element is the KEY to self-acceptance – it is the key that will unlock it, or HELP to unlock a deeper compassion and understanding and gentleness for yourself, so that you can embrace ALL of you… deepening the connection you have with ALL parts of you, and absolutely UNLOCKING the power of EMBRACING your Element, embracing who you REALLY are – and doesn’t that sound like something we ALL could do with in our lives?

.

If your answer is yes, and you don’t know what Element you are yet, download my FREE ebook, or check out the Five Element Life Collection for a larger selection of online wellness and coaching courses… The links are below + do get in touch if you have any questions, I look forward to hearing from you – bye for now…

Understanding the Element Brain + How it Might be Running the Show

By Rhiannon Griffiths

.

.

.

As I mentioned in a previous video, much of how we show up in the world – our dominant emotions, patterns of behaviour, reoccurring thoughts, the things that cause is pain, the things we need – they are ALL based in our particular Element… the one Element that is OUR type, out of the Chinese Five Elements… whether that is Fire, Earth, Metal, Water or Wood…

.

Generally I always say, that as an acupuncturist, I view the world through “five-element-tinted-glasses”, and have done for well over a decade now – it has offered me a beautiful and insightful way of seeing people and nature and emotions and behaviours and ways of being, that is different to any other model, paradigm or system I have come across…

.

But we can also take this “tinted glasses” concept one step further, by saying that actually EACH of the individual Elements view the world through their own tinted glasses, and through each lens, the world looks slightly different…

.

So if we see the world though the lens of our particular Element, how we perceive things, and how we view our own stuff, is coloured by that, and it affects how we TRANSLATE or interpret things, creating what I like to call our Element Brain…

.

Even more interestingly our Element Brain will collect “evidence” to support what it believes or perceives (through it’s tinted glasses) is true… so a Fire Element person might collect “evidence” through situations, encounters, past experiences, to “prove” the fact and confirm the perception they have about themselves that they are unlovable… which in actual case, this is not true!

.

So wouldn’t it be helpful to FINALLY understand WHY you might experience the world in the way you do, WHY it might be or FEEL different to those other people around you in your life…?? Well the WHY comes from understanding yourself from the space of your Element… wouldn’t it feel nice to take away all the blame, the wrongness, the feeling like you SHOULD be different, the thought that you need to be fixed? And just so you know, you REALLY don’t need to be “fixed”, it’s just your Element brain and that is ok…

.

But THIS is the kind of powerful and magical stuff that comes from delving into the Five Elements – we can see if your Element Brain has been running the show and taking over, giving you false or incorrect perceptions on things… and we can start to re-wire our Element brains, so that we can look at the GIFTS of OUR Element, and celebrate those gifts, embrace them – celebrate and embrace OURSELVES – enabling us to feel happier and more balanced in our lives!
