Unbalanced Earth

Each personality type has its own unique strengths as well as weaknesses. When the earth personality becomes out of balance, various problems can arise. One may:
  1. Become overweight or obese
  2. Retain water in the body
  3. Become lethargic and feel cold
  4. Sleep excessively
  5. Become emotionally static because of excess attachment
  6. Feel withdrawn and depressed
After considering the physical and psychological characteristics of the Earth personality, we can then formulate useful ways in which to balance the negative side of this personality.
  1. Sleep: People with an Earth personality should take care not to over-sleep, which can create a feeling of sluggishness. They should also make it a habit to arise early in the morning.
  2. Eating: These people must watch their diet closely, because of their tendency to gain weight. Dry, warm food in small quantities is best for them.
  3. The best types of food are those that have drying and stimulating qualities—in particular, foods that taste bitter, astringent and pungent or spicy. Addition of these foods to the diet will help to balance this personality type.
  4. Exercise: People with this personality have great endurance and should exercise as much as they can. Those who wish to practice yoga should choose an active form of yoga, such as the Sun Salutation. Even meditation practices should be more active, such as walking meditation or chanting.
  5. Emotional and cognitive: It is important for people with this personality to constantly set new goals for themselves, in order to stimulate their minds and reach their highest potential.
  6. Work: The best type of work for people with an Earth personality is something that is both active and stimulating, involving the body. However, because of their innate stability, Earth people can thrive in a variety of work environments. They can tolerate even demanding schedules such as night shifts.
All three natural personality types can express themselves in three ways.
Inertia – When the specific personality is not able to move forward and experience its potential, it is in the state of inertia. For example, wind personality may be lost in a complex web of thoughts and anxiety rather than becoming creative. Fire personality may be stuck in anger rather than taking action in the world. Earth personality may be too attached and become possessive rather than taking care of itself and others.
Action – When action is taken, various personalities move forward to fulfill themselves.
Harmony – When the specific personality is not only active but experiences flow and harmony, it begins to experience the fullness of the natural self.
