Meditating with the 4 basic elements
In the series I would like to introduce meditations that one can do at home without supervision. The first 4 would balance you and connect you to the 4 basic element.
These are: earth, water, air and fire.
1. Earth as element would heal you first of all. Mother Earth has the best healing power. It would also cleanses you from residues piled up in your body from thoughts, food and everyday little mishaps.
Would make you feel better with your chores and calms your nerves.
Earth is usually mentioned in two different aspects. One is the globe itself, the planet we call our temporary home. The other is the soil, the minerals, elements and various organic energies that make up this globe. The human body contains a certain percentage of all mentioned ingredients. Therefore when we connect to earth we actually connect to our physical existence. To the well-being of the physical body, the physical interchange between people, the material wealth and ties. The only problem seems to be with earth energy that people do not like anything dark in colour. Isn’t it funny? We come from earth, we carry all the elements of the planet in our body hence we are afraid of it. Isn’t it a proof that we are afraid of ourselves? And what are we afraid of? The unknown.
2. Water is connected to feelings. Water is the energy stream of earthly living. It is the female pole of the alchemical blending machinery. The carrier of minerals and soluble elements. As the female aspect of life its behaviour patterns is very similar to that of a woman. It is constantly active, unstoppable, and with ease or hard work water manages to change everything it touches. Builds and destroys at the same time. Pretty much like feelings. Although we are afraid of feelings, we know that life without them is a meaningless existence. Around 75% of the body is water. Therefore it is logical to say that feelings should take up the same amount in life. I am not talking about the water we drink. It is very important to say the least. However, the water we intake only works within its boundaries, the mass of the physical body; while feelings blend and interact with the whole universe.
3. Air is the in-between substance. It connects Earth with the Universe. A channel between the microcosm and the macrocosm. Again, it is essential to life for earthly living cannot be without it. Out of the 4 elements air is the one that reminds earthlings that we are part of the One, something greater than we are able to comprehend. It assures us that we are not alone. Represents the inner wars, the stay or go syndrome and the fights for a wider horizon. As life stops without it, so does without the Universe. Air reminds us that we carry the knowledge from birth, and only needs keys to open the folders. Air is the highest energy of the 3 dimensional living, and the path to the 4th dimension.
4. Fire is the masculine pole. The strength, the sexual energy and the power. When you understand fire, you understand the Universe. You are 4 dimensional. You reached the highest level of existence possible for earthlings. It is not easy though. You need to take your journey, your camino, step by step. First comes earth, after water, air and then you may touch fire.
Otherwise it doesn’t exist. Fire needs the support of air and also the interference of water.
Use one of the meditations at a time; depending on the trouble you are experiencing.
