We come to the last of the four primary elemental energies, Earth. Earth is an element of receptivity. Like Water we go into it and it accepts what is brought within it. As all elements change us and our ideas in their own way, Earth makes the most noticeable change for me. Earth is about solidifying, connecting, grounding, strength, birth, and death. Earth is where we come from and where we return to. Earth is the element to which we ground ourselves and in doing so connects us to everything else. Continue reading Northern Earth Grounds Us All
Last time we talked about the elemental energy of Fire and how it is a projective energy. In this post I want to discuss the first of the two receptive elemental energies that I come to during ritual. Water, as I already mentioned is a receptive energy, we go into the water as water will accept almost anything going into it. Continue reading Western Water Flows Free
I’m excited to announce the first post of the Wellness Wednesday series. I want to start this series by saying what Wellness Wednesdays are going to be, why I wanted to make this series, as well as give some legal disclaimers before going into this series.
Wellness Wednesday is about taking care of yourself in all aspects. This isn’t to be confused with a diet or exercise plan, but really living your life to its fullest. It is about finding that balance of both your physical and spiritual life. This can include anything from chakra balancing to oils and herbs to cooking to exercise just to name a few.
I wanted to start this series because when I approached my yearly physical training test for the Air Force in early April of this year. I realized how out of shape I have been. Even though I passed with a great score, that still didn’t hide the fact that I wasn’t taking care of my vessel of life. I’m 29 years old and I want to be sure that I remain here for many years to come. It isn’t enough to be here for those years though, I really want to have that quality in my physical life. As a witch I like to say, “if you don’t like the reality…change it”. This is me doing just that.
If you have any topics that you would like to have covered in Wellness Wednesday leave a comment or email me a question through the Contact Me Page and I will try to get to it as soon as possible.
As a disclaimer, I want to say that I am not a health professional. I cannot stress enough that if you are looking to change your diet, start an exercise routine, or use/consume anything, consult your doctor first! This series is just me sharing what I do or what I’m trying in my life. I will not and cannot be held responsible for anyone out there that does not consult a medical professional first.
Previously we covered the element of Air. As it is the element of thought and intellect. Fire is the element of passion, lust, desire, and love. It is the fire that burns inside of you. For many in the Northern Hemisphere, it is located in the south as it gets hotter for them as they go further south to the equator. For practitioners in the Southern Hemisphere it can be seen as the energy of the north as that is the direction towards the equator. As with any elemental direction, it can be changed to fit however the element of Fire speaks to you. Continue reading South Fire Burns Bright
We discussed the elemental energies two weeks ago, now let’s discuss the elemental energy of Air. Air is traditionally associated with the compass direction of East. As discussed previously, the direction of elemental energies can be dependent on the individual’s geographical location. In this segment I want to discuss what the element of Air is, why it is usually in the East for me, why I start my ritual in the east, and some ways you can connect with the element of Air.
