The sands are soils sit in the South on the Mineral World Wheel as holders-givers. They are the skin of Grandmother Earth, holding everything in place. Sands and soils absorb and hold the light and heat from Grandfather Sun, eventually transforming it and giving it as nourishment for plants. Also, the sands dance with the fluidity of water. Watch how the sands dance when waves crash the shore.
South energies teach us how to give with our emotions with tenderness, which is a means of “energy motion” or “E-motion.” Emotions are meant to be expressed, to flow freely. In other words, if we are angry we give our anger; when we are happy we give happiness; when we are sad, we cry and give with sadness. Our emotions are a part of our beauty which we have to give away. As long as we are giving our emotions with tenderness our emotions are true, clear and clean expressions of what is happening with us. We are in balance.
