How Can I Make My Relationship With The Elements Stronger?

Postby whisperingMaiden » Sun Sep 30, 2012 4:47 pm

I always feel like I need a way to make my relationships with the elements stronger.I'm not sure how to though,I mean I know there are rituals for it but a way to make it feel like I am bonding with the element instead of manipulating it.
Thank you.

Hi Maiden, I have found that working with the element directly is a good way to form a bond. I also have felt we need to work with them on a level that is of cooperation rather than domination. Say you need to align with Earth, planting a garden is a lesson in patience as well as getting in tune with that element. Fire- make candles or build a bon-fire, Water- a walk in the rain, or swim in the lake, Air- controlled breathing techniques or fly a kite, Ether- oooh...now that's a hard one, since you must go on faith. I'll think on that, Thanks. Blessed be, Firebird

For spirit/ether...I think of that element as the spark of life within all of us. To me, spirit is the Goddess and God within...that undeniable life force that resides within us. Whenever you work magick and honor that force, you're connecting to spirit :)

Try going into a small forest or park, preferably with a stream or pond nearby, and just closing your eyes and 'feeling' the elements around you. Feel the earth beneath, the air flowing over, the sunlight warming you. and of course listen to the songs of bird and in the case of the stream, the song of water, which is like life unto itself.

I personally enjoy my meditation near the river. I go there often enough that last years litter of river otters crawled into my lap one evening.
When I walk in your dreams you will find only peace.

Spiritual power, I call it the power of every thing. Involves co-existance. Where you need to connect to all. It take practice as well as just listening beyond your self. It requires you to be open, fully open, not partially. Because you receive partiality back. For me I garden a bit. Then I plant and let nature takes it course. I spread seeds wildly in places where lawn mowers can't reach. I love spreading flower seeds. I swim w/ water letting it heal me and cradle me like a lover. The air as it flows never once stopping. The fire I watch it dance gravitating to my energy and being repulsed here and there by energy or air.

Very cool Ray,
yes the place that is not a place, a time that is not a time, for out of nothing...comes EVERYTHING! the place between the words, is most defiantly a place of faith, so if you expect your magic to work....Faith

Everyone's ways of connecting with the elements seem great...it inspires me to go out and do the same more often!

is ether spirit? because to me, that means using your spirituality. like, the more you use it, the stronger it becomes. when I first started practicing when I was 13 (and dumb) I thought I would be this powerful witch overnight, but then I grew up (i'm 16 now) and realized that I've been doing it wrong this whole time. so I consider myself a new beginner. a beginner with knowledge already. where was I....
anyway, I really like what you said there!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
