When we are born the first element we are introduced to is water. In The womb we are protected by water. When it is time for us to leave the womb, the next element introduced is air. This is when we take our first breath. We then grow into our Earth form with the energy of fire to move us through life. All four elements, water, air, earth, and fire remain with us throughout life and leave one by one before we make our transition out of the Earth plane.
The four elements make up life as we know it. Mankind has fallen away from the natural world and has lost the connection to Spirit (creator), and has taken the position of creator itself, without the respect for the rest of creation. This play of false power without love has created an imbalance of the four elements, not only within Man, but all of life here on Earth. We did not create the web. We are merely threads in it, and whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves. This is the collective consciousness. Since we can affect the collective with our thoughts and actions, there is also a reciprocal process with everything else.
Water is our emotions. Air is our thoughts. Earth is our physical body. Fire is our energy. What element(s) is out of balance within you?
Think about the region where you live. What element(s) is prominent? I live in Colorado. It’s usually a dry arid region, so fire is one of the prominent elements here. Fire is the only element that cannot be polluted. It purifies everything that it touches. Last year was the beginning of the purification process for this region. And as of a few days ago, it has risen to purify once again. This is what fire does. It cannot be anything else. And to ask or wish for another element to come by and interrupt the process would be a dishonor. All good things happen in all good time. It’s all about timing and if the Earth needs to cleanse herself we must come to understand her needs and honor that. Let Fire do what it does. And TRUST that the rains will come.
If there is a raging hurricane happening around you, sit with a cup of water and pray to it. Decree that what is in for the greatest good. And your greatest good, what yours is may be completely different. So, with all good intention, set your words for the greatest good of all. If there is a tornado happening around you, sit and listen to each in breath and out breath. Pray to your breath and thank it for giving you life. If there is an earthquake happening around you, stay calm, breathe and listen to your heartbeat. Connect your heartbeat with the heartbeat of the Earth and the Sun. It works. If there is a fire happening around you, sit with a candle and pray to fire. Thank it for purifying what needed to be cleansed. Everything is alive. We can have relationships and conversations with the four elements anytime we choose. They will teach us everything that we are lacking to understand.
Most of us know that things are rapidly changing on so many levels, but where we hold our attention will bring understanding more into clarity. We were taught that the Earth is here for our disposal. We generally do not pay attention to the elements until we need them. We are now in a different playing field here on Earth. We can no longer ignore life. Whatever element is out of balance in your region is exactly what kind of weather changes will be expected. We pray for well being, but at the same time we must be humble. Nature has let us live our lives out this far, as a return in kindness we must do the same for her. Let it be.
May your own life continue to expand into a loving compassionate mode of being for yourself and all of life, everywhere.
