The Water Type

The organs associated with water are the kidneys and bladder.

The emotion associated with water is fear. Fear is a primordial emotion, necessary for survival. It allows us fight (taking our place in the world) or flight (withdrawing from the world). Wisdom, another quality associated with water, allows us to know when it is right to fight or to flee .

Some water people court fear and so engage in life in a reckless and foreceful manner. For others, fear freezes them, so they withdraw from life and their potential. They are too scared to take a risk and achieve success. Some water people can swing between recklessness and fear, in different aspects of their lives, or at different times in their lives.

Kidney energy is associated with drive, ambition, motivation, will power, wisdom and skill.
