To honour and work with my inner elements to help balance them.
I recently did a workshop with the lovely Ashantara Gray ~ The Celtic Faery Seer where we worked on our Fire element. This was over a week ago now and since then there has been a lot of internal processing going on. To be truthful I have had some very angry thoughts and feelings buzzing around inside of me, dare I say it, I even felt feelings of jealousy and injustice. I did not understand these feelings or why they were coming up for me until I remembered my work with fire. I have suppressed these feelings for a while now, not honouring or being aware of any inner turmoil, so when I started working with the energies of fire, those suppressed energies rose like an angry dragon who had been chained and left alone inside his cave.
I spoke with the dragon within me and asked him to help me, work with me, with the other aspects of me, Earth, Water and Air. At first he was not happy to do so as I had disregarded him for so long, punished him and restrained him… I apologised for all I have done and spoke to him about the error of my ways, I promised to honour him and asked, once again, for him to work with the other aspects of myself in balance and unity. He then agreed.
This to you may all sound a little strange, or it may not. What I do know is if you do not honour the elements that are within you, if you do not treat them with respect, if you do not let them flow they will break free, they will become overpowering, causing Tsunamis Earthquakes, Tornadoes and Erupting Volcanoes, from within… My Volcano was full flow for a while this week but now I work with that volcano, I understand it’s need for eruption and I bring in my other elements to help soothe it… As all of this has come into my awareness I have decided today to honour my elements in little ways…
- Water – To take a shower with the intention to cleanse and clear
- Air – To communicate with truth and honesty
- Earth – To do the Tree of Life Meditation to honour my roots and my connection to Mother Earth
- Fire – To light a candle to remind me the power of the internal flame
