Fire is an expression of your Qi-energy at it's most energetic phase--what else needs to be said?
Key Image: Fire serves to warm and illuminate when it is under control but will dominate and consume when it is out of control.
Key Emotion: Joy causes energy to disperse-it tends to dissipate and be lost. The power of Joy comes from the capacity to liberate heat and realize fulfillment.
Key Organ: Heart complex and small intestine.
When the Heart is in balance it provides the foundation for healthy mental, emotional and relational living. You express and experience warmth and tenderness, sensitivity, spontaneity and equanimity. You relish excitement and delight in your intimacies. The highest expression of the Fire Constitution is love.
Although most psychological imbalances will to some degree represent an imbalance in the Fire Phase the fundamental imbalance of the Fire Constitution relates to mental and emotional states and to social and personal relations. Under stress and out of balance you will exhibit a feeling or nervousness and agitation. Because heat rises, the conditions of Fire imbalance appear primarily in the upper part of the body: the chest, shoulders, neck and head.
Key Emotional Pattern: Modern life is a highly stimulated affair filled with all kinds of threats and demands. In such times it is difficult to maintain true equanimity or balance in the being. This stimulated condition inflames and weakens the heart. Heart disease remains the biggest killer of mankind. Likewise, most of us would agree heart-break as a result of problematic emotional-sexual relationships is probably the biggest psychological pain.
