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.

the Healing Power of Love

The Healing Power of Love

Right around Christmas time 2014, I asked my late aunt and the Universe to give me the courage and strength I needed to learn to love myself and take my power back from those whom I had allowed to control or hurt me. A few weeks later, I set that as my full-moon intention; and so began my healing journey of body, mind, and spirit to break the cycle of trauma and abuse that ran throughout my ancestral lines for generations.

Over the next 22 months, I would change the way I viewed myself and the world around me and take the biggest risk I have ever made: to allow love into my heart.

I slowly learned to love, accept, and approve of ALL of me – both the light and dark aspects of myself and my past. As I did, I began shedding the layers of masks I wore, and the fortress of protection I had spent a lifetime building around my heart began to crumble away. I had worn these as shields to prevent myself from feeling the continual hurt, judgment, repeated abandonment, disappointment, and betrayal by loved ones from happening again and again.

With the love, support, encouragement, wisdom, and guidance of my sisterhoods and the man who would break open my heart to allow love in, I replaced the outdated false belief systems – that I am not lovable, good enough, worthy, or deserving of good things – with the knowing that I AM.

I saw that I had the same beauty inside and outside of myself that I saw in others and nature. I was no longer afraid to share my rawness, vulnerabilities, and Truth (my divine and authentic Truth rather than the truth of the false belief systems I once perceived to be true). As I began trusting more in myself, intuition, and divine guidance, I gained confidence and began feeling more comfortable sharing my spiritual gifts and talents, which I had kept locked inside since early childhood. With the healing power of love, I began to make my childhood dreams become a reality.
