An honest discussion of Earth season would have to include both Sympathy (with-feeling) and Empathy (in-feeling). The most defining quality of an Earth imbalance is the mixing up of messages sent and received by the part of us the interprets feeling. Earth is a container. in proper function, it will be a solid nourishing vessel that does not leak or allow for stagnation. In improper function it will leak energy all over the place and it will drain the sources that surround it. Earth imbalances can be tricky because they can show up with a person that nourishes everyone else but can not nourish themselves. Or a person that can not get enough sympathy or energy from others and sucks it from everyone around them. And there is the person that just stagnates in the same place and complains constantly. I believe that a lot of the empaths have their Earth- wires crossed. They are taking in so much information from their surroundings that they are unable to contain and become scattered.
The American culture breeds Earth imbalances, mainly because we do not know how to support the people in our community in a loving and empowering way. We do not have the hang of sharing, loving and communicating in a group. There is a lot of sucking dry surrounding resources for the self, a type of obesity or not being able to take in nourishment and wasting away, a form of anorexia. Healthy Earth is stable, grounded, powerful, generous and self- renewing.
