Elementals… it’s Quite Simple, Really


Elementals… let’s look at how we can implement and work with them a little in our own lives.
Let’s start with Air… well what is that first thing that comes to mind… stress chaos…. Frustration… so what do we do… lets work with the Elemental Air…..stop and breathe it in… I mean really breathe it in… it clears our minds, calms the nerves and resets the panic button so we can think a little more clearly.


So when things are a little foggy, a slight bit stressful, open a window…open a door and just breathe. Allow that breath to center us… I often do this when getting ready for a reading or going into a meditation or prayer state. It’s always amazing to me just how it assists me. Think of taking that breath as opening the door after a long winter to air the house out…Wind power…

Can’t hear you all…take a deep deep breath and fill it all the way til you can fit no more… then let it slowly out releasing all the negative stuff we are holding….

Okay the next step …lets do Water….


Water is refreshing revitalizing renewing. It gives life, it sustains life… Our bodies are made up of water… so reach out for that elemental, step into a shower… and let it rinse away the negativity, feel its renewal of energy as it refreshingly wakes you up…or gets your day moving in the right direction…

Step out into a warm summers rain…there is nothing like it… or the smell of a rain in the spring as it brings the world back to sleep after a long winters rest… live it and take the experience in…enjoy that rebirth of energy

Earth…. Grounding…. When life is crazy and we are so out of touch with things… and nothing makes sense… go out and take a walk… plant your feet onto the grass…or in some dirt… ot snow for that matter… just get outside and connect…hug a tree… it will ground you… it will make you forget for a little and you will be able to put things in perspective again…


The great mother is here in support of us… so honor her…respect her… and tell her you love her…tap into that energy…

Fire…. One of my favorite elementals… fire the power of the burn… when you need to get motivated they tell us lets get fired up… the heat… the energy from that… Father Sun… helps all things to grow… keeps us warm… gives us energy in the form of Fire….We cook with it… we pray with it… we dance with it…


So think about all the possibilities, or realize the potential we all have at our fingertips if we only would take a minute to channel the power of the Elementals… For The miracle of life is the miracle of the elementals.

Let us raise our intentions to our consciousness and voice by sending healing energies and prayer up this day… Today I pray for all those who ask, all those in need, all those who do not ask … I pray that we are given the strength, the joy and the love that is needed in our days…

I call to the sacred winds…to carry my words
To the Grandmothers and Grandfathers of the North, the south, the east, the west, Above …below and within…

I call to the sacred winds to carry my words to the Winged ones…the Four Leggeds…the Plant People…the Crystal Keepers, the Thunder Beings, the Angelic Realm…Mother Mary and Magdalene…my Brother Christ and all the nations that love us.

I thank you for all the many blessings that you have shared with us today and beyond and I ask that you hear our prayers whether spoken our held silently within our hearts.

Today I ask that you hear our prayers as we stand humbly before you, small and human.
Help us to remember we are all but a tiny part of a great universe, that we are all connected as one…

Bring us the strength we need to walk our paths without ego or judgment…
Allow our hearts to hear what our ears are missing
Teach us how to allow forgiveness for others and ourselves
Fill our being with the unconditional love that you so freely offer all.
I call that we be reminded we are all no better than or less than one another.

Guide us through our days, to help us with our humanness…that we learn to reconnect with others in a gentle and positive way. Offering smiles when they are needed without thought, shoulders or ears to help ease another…and words that will uplift or soothe.

Keep our children safe and strong in this troubled world… I ask that on this day and days to come…guidance is shared with them to help them as they walk their paths. Help open their eyes so they can learn and see the right way of things, teach them to respect all life as sacred no matter how small, open their ears and minds so that they may understand things that are being taught to them in good and gentle manners…open their hearts so that when the harshness of the world falls at their feet, they can cope and handle it with compassion and understanding.

I ask that today and all days ahead that our awareness of the Elementals and the energies they offer become keener, sharper. So that we can understand how to use and harness that power to better our lives, our health our states of mind. For us to be thankful for all that we need to survive and walk productive positive lives has been provided for… if we simply open our eyes to the magic of the world around us. I call to the Element of Water…cleanse and refresh us…nurture our bodies and our Souls! I call to the Elemental of Air… clear our minds and thoughts… jump start our being, help us gain new perspectives! I call to the Great Mother Earth and give thanks for all she shares… help us to ground and center ourselves again… and I call out to the elemental of Fire… Ignite within us all a new way of thinking, give us the energy we need to become better people to ourselves and others…

I thank all those who have walked with us and answer our calls…this day and in days to come…and honor you …

So today…give yourself a gift, and play with the magic of the elementals… and allow them to bring magic and miracles into your lives!
I wish you a wonderful and magical day…may the love in my heart reach and fill yours.
