With my soul connected to the four elements, I call upon and feel the most important one. The Element of Spirit.
It is a void and a light. An energy that runs through each element and every being on the earth. We are all connected to each other and reflections of one another.
The Element of Spirit is thought by many to be a void. Unknowable, untouchable, and out of our comprehension.
To myself, the element of Spirit is found only when all the other elements are balanced and harmonious. It is found inside each of us. A spark, a light. A scale of balance. Achieving this balance is a tough task for everything in our life is in constant motion.
Spirit is said to be the perfect balance of light and dark together.
“In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.”
Each element of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water come from Spirit. They are born from it and each gain their powers from it.
On the altar, I bring representations of each element to remind myself to keep each in balance. This is especially true in spell-work. Candle magic is very much Fire-based but I need to remember that too much Fire is destruction.
I see the salt of Earth on my altar and I am reminded that no amount of spell-work will manifest what I want if I do not do the work on a physical level.
I see the smoke rising from Air and I am reminded to think everything through and to be aware of consequences.
I see the candle’s bright Fire and I am reminded that I must want and desire this change. There is no halfway on this.
I see the seashells and Water and I am reminded that this spell-work must nurture myself or someone else. That what I do is right and brings about a positive change.
I invite you now to sit with Element of Spirit. Discover what it is to you. What balance do you find?
