Fire

The element of fire relates to will and power. The passion, the electromagnetic field of presence.The power of the tongue! Fire is,expansive, intense and constantly seeking to overcome anything that limits its self-expression.

Fire provided a source of warmth, protection from predators, a way to create more advanced hunting tools and a method for cooking food. These cultural advances allowed cultural innovations and changes to human diet and behavior.

Because fire warms and gives off light like the sun, it often represents the sun or a sun god in mythology. It is linked with the idea of the hearth, the center of a household. Fire can also be a symbol of new life, as in the case of the phoenix, the mythical bird that is periodically destroyed by flames to rise reborn from its own ashes.

It can also represent bravery, beginnings and drive. Fire is active energy. It houses beings called Salamanders that dance inside with joy until the source burns no more. In Feng Shui the Element of Fire embodies our enthusiasm, warm feelings, movement and spiritual radiance. The Fire is alive and gives birth to new life and new ideas.

Fire Signs:

Aries – March 21 – April 20

Leo – July 23 – August 23

Sagittarius – November 23 – December 21

A Fire sign individual (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) is an indicator of someone filled with creativity. This element manifests itself in creative and unique ways, and those in its glow are wonderfully courageous and lively spirits. Those influenced by a Fire sign are self-sufficient, spontaneous and possess a tremendous zest for life. Natives of this component are passionate and could even be compared to volcanoes, especially when their enthusiasm turns into a form of aggressiveness.

Fire represents many things to many people and cultures. It is recognized as a purifier, a destroyer and as the generative power of life, energy and change. It represents illumination and enlightenment, destruction and renewal, spirituality and damnation”.

What is spiritual fire, where does it come from and why does it drive us to seek greater purpose? Why do we search for meaning in our lives? Why does it seem like we have a spiritual fire burning a hole in our souls? Really, why should we do this? It holds no immediate gratification to find meaning in life and yet many are seeking.


Fire is one of God’s greatest gifts to humanity. With fire we cook food, heat our homes, and destroy garbage that would otherwise overwhelm us. Likewise, the gift of speech is of great benefit. With our tongues we communicate information, express affection,praise and curse. A tongue under control can speak life and truth into our world, bless and discipline our children, and transfer the wisdom. But, like fire out of bounds, our tongues can also do great damage.

How do you use this element in your life?

AIR

The element of Air is light, it is an active element and is contrary to Earth atmosphere. It is associated with the qualities of darkness, motion and thinness. Scientifically, Nitrogen and oxygen make up about 99 percent of Earth’s air that we breathe.

The element of Air is vital to human survival, without it we would all perish, its quality is active. Air is the manifestation of movement, freshness, communication and of the intelligence. Sound is another manifestation of this element. As an element, it is invisible, but its reality can be felt in the air that we breathe in and out every day. We cannot capture or tame the Air, but we certainly know it’s with us. It can be tempestuous or still, or as gentle as a puff on a birthday candle.

To connect with the power of this element, find a place with clean air and breathe deeply, touch a feather or inhale the fragrance of a heavily scented flower. Let yourself experience the energy of this element, and reflect that we also possess Air energy within ourselves.

The air element works in conjunction with all other elements to sustain life on this planet. Think about how air works with the others: air fuels fire, moves earth, makes clouds with water. We inhale and exhale air, it cools us off, but it can also be destructive and blow down houses. Without air, we definitely would not survive. Air is whirling, twirling, twisting, freeing. Whipping, swirling, caressing, calling, kissing, clouding, flying. Speak it into existence, whisper it into the wind..

The air signs are:
Gemini: May 21–June 21.
Libra: September 23–October 23.
Aquarius: January 20–February 18.

In magical terms, Air is the power of the mind, the force of intellect, inspiration, imagination. It is ideas, knowledge, dreams and wishes. Air is the element of new life and new possibilities. Air aids us in visualization, a vital technique in magic. This is why “Air signs” are the thinkers, communicators, and doers of the zodiac( due to the nature “air”). They breeze through life, never stopping to catch their breath and their intelligence helps them make decisions easily.

Air is a masculine element and governs the magick of the four winds. It is the vital spirit passing through all things, giving life to all things, moving and filling all things.

The Air Element corresponds to the Eastern part of creation. It symbolizes a vast network of vital breath, from the winds that brought the Universe into being to the first cry of a newborn baby or first breath of life (Om). Where Earth is “fixed” air is most definitely a mover. It’s also connected to the mind, wisdom, spirits and the soul.

The Element of Air is an excellent representation of spiritual faith. Air reminds us that there is much more to this world than what we can see , and also teaches that we must grow and change as the world does likewise

While nearly any pale colour can represent the Air Element the most common two are Yellow and White.

The Color yellow, symbolizes the season of Spring, which also correlates to the Air Element. For light healers, yellow brings peace into the auric field. Other associations for yellow that carry over to the Air Element includes creativity, intellect, happiness, clarity and perception.

When speaking of the Air Element the vibration of 8 creates change, usually in the areas of finances, career or personal power. It emphasizes balance in various areas of your life and listening carefully to the urgings of Spirit in your life. Wind is not static; it bends and weaves, and when you work with this Element or find it presenting itself in your life, you may find your need for adaptability challenged.

There are many dimensions. It’s time to see what you have not seen, or perhaps what you’re not willing to recognize. You will need an odd combination of control with whimsy and spontaneity. I dare you to run with the wind – see where it takes you.

Earth

In my last post, i wrote about the elements and what they generally are..Everything on our planet (EARTH) is comprised of the first four, or the classical elements- Fire, Water, Earth, and Air.[-the 5th being Space a.k.a. spirit}. Various states and combinations of them make up the first four. We get Darkness and Light through Fire. Water gives us Ice, and Earth gives us Nature. These elements are vital for human survival, they make life possible, and death inevitable. However, today we are focusing on Earth, (the planet we live in a.k.a, our BODY) and the personality types that best resonate with this element.

Planet Earth is one of the unique planets in the Solar System because of the presence of abundant water resources to sustain life ( p:s , The oxygen we breathe contains 47% water.) The structure of the Earth is like an onion; it has multiple layers. Scientifically the earth is made up of mostly these four elements : Oxygen, silicon,iron and aluminum. The earth´s atmosphere however is composed of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, 0.9% argon, 0.3% carbon dioxide and traces of other elements and particles. Which basically means we are all just a bunch of elements!! and it’s important to which are the elements make you, YOU!

THE EARTH ELEMENT: Practical

TAURUS (April 20-May 20),
VIRGO (August 23-September 22),
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19)

While each element often carries distinctive connotations depending on cultural settings, there are some commonalities.

Earth energies facilitate all manner of manifestation by putting down strong roots from which our dreams grow into reality.

That is not to say that the Earth Element has nothing but positive characteristics. It can be fierce. Just watch a volcano erupt or the damage from a quake. This kind of power is why it is so important to respect our mother (you know the old saying: it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature).

The Earth is stable and reliable, yet constantly working and moving. Those with the Earth element share these traits. You are practical and logical and stand firm in your convictions. You learn through experience, which is never difficult for a curious person like yourself. You aren’t interested in unrealistic dreams, but rather you believe in setting achievable goals that are attained through hard work. Your home is welcoming and warm and always open to friends and family, which is fitting considering you’re a bit of a homebody.You are stubborn and bull-headed and will often stick to your position for no other reason than it is your position.

Earth Magical Properties: growth, femininity, prosperity, birth, fertility, stability, grounding, finances, death, motherhood.

Magical Tools: salt, pentacle, stones/crystals

The earth element works in conjunction with all other elements to sustain life on this planet. Think about how earth works with the others: earth feeds fire, requires water for growth, produces air (trees/plants) in conjunction with water. But can also suffocate fire and air and impede water. We live on the earth, our feet and homes planted in the soil, and grow our food in the earth. Without earth, we would not survive. Earth is nurturing, grounding, loving, growing, replenishing, moving, sowing, and reaping and no matter what zodiac sign you represent you are EARTH ! as in your skin is ..

The fundamental elements of our nature

You must have heard about five elements of nature and I am sure you have some basic understanding about it as well. Every visible thing was made up of some combination of earth, water, air, and fire. These four out of five elements were even used to describe the four temperaments a person could have. However, when it comes to body cleansing process or any other natural healing process, there are 5 elements of nature that plays a very important part of the whole ( aka HOLE we dwell in..) In this post, you will learn about those basic but very important concept of our body.

In reality, we do yoga to strengthen our body and we practice meditation for peace of mind, but do we know about the most important elements from which our body is made?

Every human body is essentially made from five elements which are Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space and upon death all these 5 elements of the human body is dissolved to it’s respective element of nature, so that it can balance the cycle of nature.

Each of these five elements has its own functions and characteristic as described below:

The first element is “Earth”. This element is perceived by five senses. which are Sight, Smell, Taste, Hear and Touch. The physical body with muscles and bones refers to Earth. ( If you think earth is just the planet or ground or world we live in, you couldn’t be more wrong. Earth is the skin that covers your bones,blood , tissues and organs etc.) Earth is the external manifestation of OUR HOME.

The second most important element is “Water”. This element has no odor (smell) but can be heard, felt, seen and tasted. In the human body, blood and other fluid are refer to Water. As we all have been told or even studied, our body contains up to 60% of water. The surface of the earth also covers almost 60% of water or more, what does that tell you ? ( Our bodies, aka Planet Earth cannot survive without over average % of water which contains half air) same as the external surface of the earth we dwell on. hmmm..

The next higher element in human body is “Fire”. In human body our temperature is referred to as the fire. It can be heard, felt and seen. (Internally, our digestive system is a very good example of Fire element that helps our body digest the food we take everyday). The heat, passion and zeal that is required to do anything externally refers to the fire element. We simply cannot do without it! The combination of these elements are the cause of weather change, planetary shifts etc..

The fourth element is “Air”. Air can be felt and heard only, one cannot see air. In the human body, the oxygen and carbon dioxide in the body refers to Air. It is considered as one of the most important factor in life. As we know that the human body can not live without Oxygen which is known as Prana in Sankstrit and this is why one must do regular breathing, mental and physical exercises to keep their body’s Oxygen rich and to prevent diseases.

The fifth and last element is “Space” which is translated in Sanskrit at ‘aakash‘. Space is the medium of sound but is inaccessible to all other senses, and in the human body the Soul refers to Space.

The combination of these 5 elements of nature make up our body and will (a.k.a the wheel of life) ie “our willpower”. These elements in our body will dissolve into their respective elements upon death.

Our fascination with these elements has also led to countless theories that have been created revolving around one or more of these elements for centuries. One of such area of elemental study incorporates philosophical connections to human life, with the individual elements being associated with various personality types. The most notorious of which is Fire, is synonymous with having a fiery personality and being overly-emotional or easily triggered. The Earth type is grounded and they possess strong maternal, and protective instincts. Water types are fluid and easy-going, oftentimes they are the more balanced ones. The Air type is a rational, free-thinker who can see the big picture with more clarity than the other element types.

The elements inside and outside of our bodies are all the same. Awaken to your divinity as a whole!! We are all individually part of a bigger picture..

In my next post, i’ll be diving deep into the world behind all the above mentioned elements.

With love..

Spicy food is healing food

Being a healer and a teacher has really opened me into a whole new world I must say. I awaken more into my true divine self every moment because I see how ignorance has destroyed many many lives, both living and dead.. I enjoy being a healer because I get to speak the truth and mostly help those who are confused and going through so many deeply rooted emotional, mental and physical ailments without certainty of what is being treated and how it works via drugs or going to the hospital etc..

One of the most effective ways to heal anyone is through food, because as human beings we live via food and water ( we get physically sick through food and water so it definitely makes sense that we heal via food and water). A lot of people do not believe in what they do not see, hence this post. Healing via food is just as powerful as healing via thoughts, energetic healing, reiki healing etc.. These are all the same kinds of healing but using different routes to achieve the same aim. It all starts with the intention to heal! Most people know they are sick but they are NOT READY TO HEAL. To heal you have to BE READY TO LET GO OF WHAT MADE YOU SICK !! Doctors do not tell you that, they treat you, give you drugs, bags of drips and injections and that’s it .. You have to treat from the root of the problem, which stems from a decision to stop ✋ the root cause by knowing the root cause!

Just as spicy thoughts are healing thoughts, spicy foods are healing food. Any food or plant that is spicy, hot, like tumeric, ginger , onions, garlic , cardamom, cloves, pepper, bell peppers ( all colors), cayenne pepper, anise, Angelica, fennel, nutmeg , cinnamon, celery seeds, mustard seeds, cumin ,etc.. these are all very powerful and super healing !! They specifically heal different things in the body . ( in subsequent posts I’ll dive in details as to what each of these plants heal).

Ever had a thought come to you and it is like damn, that’s scary, terrifying, daring, surprising, unusual, ? Most of the time, it is a thought that leads to healing.. ( thought itself is a teacher!) which begs me to believe that women are naturally spicy by tongue, by nature .. and most of these spicy foods are “feminine” because they are healing.

It is more powerful to eat these foods as they are without cooking them because everything in nature is already made to its perfection. So when we cook them, no matter how little, we have decreased it’s components it’s nutrients as well as it’s healing powers and its vitality just like our thoughts, words and actions when we sugarcoat them.

Life is not a school to learn, life is a master to know and master its being ( the being itself is already a master).. We are gods in our OWN right. Every plant is a god in its own right, same as animals. Everything here is made to its perfection to serve you! Open your mind

With love ..
