Building Your Relationship With Element Fire

Connecting with the Elemental Forces of Creation: Earth, Air, Water, Fire, and Spirit is easy to do. I have gotten to know the five Elemental Forces of Creation intimately over the past few years and have been working with them closely on many levels to bring my goals, dreams and heart’s desires into manifestation in the physical realm. I work with them on a daily basis asking for their guidance and wisdom, as well as, insight on specific questions. In my blog post, Building Your Relationship with Element Earth, I shared with some of the magick and wisdom of the element Earth (the Physical Realm) and tips on you can work with element Earth and develop a deeper relationship with her. Today, I will share with you, how to build and deepen your relationship with the element Fire.

Fire is the action realm. It is the source of heat, our passions, sensuality, sexuality, and creativity. Fire’s powerful dynamic teaches us how to transform our passions, claim our personal power, shine our light brightly into the world, and to live the life we desire. Fire teaches us the mysteries of transformation, changing forms allowing the old parts of ourselves to die and rebirth into the new. Similar to the Phoenix, the old parts of ourselves die and we rise up from the ashes into a newer, brighter version of ourselves.

Fire can also be a volatile realm in which many people express their fear of a fire getting out of control and may fear their life getting consumed by the fire and growing out of control or fearing their emotions will erupt like a volcano if they express them. Learning to work with fire takes skill, and one that requires focus, determination, and conscious training, similar to that of the archetypal Warrior energy. Balance is key to working with fire; learning when to take action by fueling the fire and when to rest and recharge.
Fire teaches us to live a dynamic powerful and passionate life. Working effectively with the element Fire requires you to honor the sacred teaching, wisdom, and tools of Fire and find ways to merge these gifts, messages, and wisdom from the other realms with your everyday awareness. Like the light from a lighthouse, Fire illuminates and guides us on our path. It encourages us to take action, and shine bright.

Building Your Relationship with Element Earth

Building Your Relationship With Element Earth 

Earth is one of the fundamental elements in the Magickal Forces of Creation. Earth represents all physical matter in our lives. This includes your body, home, working environment, finances, and land. It is your responsibility to mindfully and respectfully create, take care and manage these things in your life. It is where we find the tools, resources and building blocks to build a solid foundation for our dreams, goals and heart’s desires and turn them into structure and form. Building your relationship with element Earth is easy to do. 

Ways to build your relationship with Element Earth:

  • Spend time outdoors in nature

Spending time outdoors is a great way to connect with Mother Earth and build a relationship with her. Go for a walk, sit outside in a chair or on the ground or at the base of a tree, by the ocean or other body of water. Even a hug a tree if you would like. BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS. What do you see? Hear? Smell? Feel? Can you taste anything? ENJOY BEING PRESENT IN THE MOMENT!

  • Bring the outdoors inside

Bringing the outdoors inside to your home or office space helps you stay connected to earth and create sacred space for you during your daily activities especially on the days that make it difficult to go outside. Open the windows, let fresh air in, this also helps circulate stagnant energy and provides a natural source of ventilation. Liven up the room by placing an indoor plant in the room. This also helps with air quality. Plants absorb carbon dioxide and keep oxygen flowing, help purify the air by removing toxins, help prevent illness, ease tension and lower stress and help to create a relaxed and happy ambiance.

Brighten the ambiance of a room by placing flowers on your desk or table. Flowers can help boost your mood, reduce stress, help make you feel better faster and even help boost your memory and concentration. Fill a glass bowl with rocks, seashells, pine cones or other treasures you may find while out in nature. Get creative and make other decorations you can hang up or place around your home with favorite items found out in nature.

  • Give Thanks

Gratitude is an amazing and simple concept yet often times gets overlooked. There are many benefits to having a “gratitude” attitude. Gratitude makes us feel happier, improves and opens more doors to relationships (and also shows good manners), improves physical and emotional health and helps lifts our spirits even in the toughest times by reminding us of the positive things we have to be grateful for. Below are several ways you can incorporate gratitude into your daily routine. 

  • Say a simple “thank you” each morning when you wake up
  •  Give thanks throughout the day for the things you receive.
  •  Tell or show someone you are thankful for & appreciate them 
  • Keep a Gratitude journal and write at least 3 things you are grateful for each evening before going to sleep.

 

  • Create a vision board.

Create a vision board of the things you wish to manifest and bring into the physical realm. Thumb through magazines and/or catalogs and without thinking tear out pictures, words and phrases, anything that draws your attention and catches your eye. After you have done that glue the pictures and phrases on a piece of paper, poster board, card stock or anything you have on hand and if you feel like being more creative you can draw, paint, add embellishments, ribbons, and whatever else your creative muse is drawn to. When you are finished, display it in place where you can see it every day.

  • Crystals

Crystals that correspond to the Earth element are: Agate, Moss Agate, Calcite, Diamond, Emerald, Jasper, Jet, Malachite, Onyx, and Black Tourmaline.
