The 4 vital elements of nature (Air, Water, Earth and Wind) come from its energy and give us the essential substance that allows us to live. There is a fifth element called spirit, which is present in all things and unifies and harmonizes all elements.

We are deeply connected to the earth, at all levels of our being

It is up to us now to change our relationship with the earth, work to bring healing

The four living elements in nature, water, air, earth, fire comes from its energy and gives us the essential substance in order to live

There is a fifth element called spirit present in all things, which unifies and harmonizes all elements

These 4 elements of nature are repeated in a similar way in various cultures such as pagan, Celtic, Hinduism or Taoism, and of course, in sorcery

Air is a light element, ethereal and gentle, symbolizes the thoughts, ideas, creativity and dreams of the human mind, encompassing intelligence, memory and reasoning ability

It is also related to communication and to the verb, the art of oratory, singing and singing

or teaching are clear examples, after all the voice is nothing but air in motion

The person who is connected with the air desires to know and to experience the world, has a curious and broad mind, is represented in the figure of the scientist, the genius, the philosopher, or the idealist

The excess of air leads us to live in an excessively mental plane, losing the connection with the material world

or reality

The most extreme imbalance manifests itself in the form of psychological disorder or dementia

In the context of magic it would manifest itself through the sylphs and fairies of Eastern Europe

Water is fluid, changing, dense, vulnerable, also the material

Water represents the sensory, the sensual

It symbolizes and governs emotions and feelings such as love

and friendship

It is also related to intuition, hunches and instinct

If there is a verb that defines this element, it is to feel, is the rebirth, the movement and contains the essence of the continuous renewal from the sensory experience

It is present in the seas, lakes, rivers of the world and in the human body, therefore, we are enormously sensitive to their changing qualities

Water zodiac signs or people who feel a deep connection with this element, are governed by creativity, the influence of esotericism, music, creativity and the expressiveness of movement such as dance, all of them natural forms of expression of human beings since ancient times

The one who blesses the water gives it a value and an energetic charge

that will vary according to the mood of the person or entity that applies it

In magic it would be manifested through the ondines or the naiads of western Europe

The earth

It is the most physical, tangible and dense element

It is related to survival, material goods, work, perseverance, slowness and strength

It is the element that provides stability and anchorage to the human psyche

The stimuli associated with the Earth are the five primary senses: smell, touch, taste recognition, see and hear

To love the earth is a feeling rooted in the heart of man, a primary and deep instinct

that nestles in our psyche since we have been in this world

Earthly individuals have a slow tempo, like the cycles of the seasons

They are practical and conservative-minded people they take their time to make decisions, they have fixed habits and their energy for work is infinite

The excess of this element leads us to the darkest part of the earthly, excess of material ambition, attachment and greed

In the magical iconography, the gnomes and the dwarfs of the Nordic countries are the archetype that rules the earth

Fire symbolizes the energy of health, strength, the ability to accomplish goals and endurance

It is a difficult element to govern, active and fast

which possesses the virtue of purifying

Fire is thoughtless, it is connected to impulse, to will and sometimes to uncontrol

It is at the same time transforming, transforms water into steam, wood into ash, solid into liquid, the same effect it has on the human psyche

The inner fire helps us to take impulse to change things or to finish with the old to create new patterns, is pure renewal

Qualities such as desire, leadership, innovation, freedom, the concept of eternity and mutation are part of this element

The excess of it translates into anger, lack of control, mental dispersion, people who constantly change ideas or projects, impatience, intolerance and aggressiveness

Smoke has been used to summon these energies

or the bonfire in their magical rites, manifested in the salamander in the south of Europe and has been associated with hell in Christian culture

Seasons have been exalted by all cultures throughout history

If we make an anthropological tour we will find innumerable expressions of the celebration of each new period of the year

As an intrinsic part of the human identity and the deep relationship that exists between us and the rhythms of the earth

The climatic phenomena have played a role of major forces associated with the gods and the concept of magic in various cibilizations, the power of the sun, the mystery of the moon, the wrath of the thunder or the vendetta of the tempest, left no doubt of the supremacy of these forces and their goodness, cholera or whims

Ceremonies linked to nature and the most significant seasonal changes, were progressively transformed into celebrations adapting to each time and culture, modifying their norms and codes until arriving to our days

An example is the celebration of the night of San Juan, which is still considered a magical night

and preserves some rituals for love, change or wealth

Themes that are repeated over and over again

over the centuries

It must be taken into account that the scenario of the past was nothing like that of the past

to the technological world in which we live

Primitive astronomy was based on the observation of the sky and time as a reference

On the other hand, one of the great objectives of magic has been to dominate the elements of nature and use them in favor of man

This gives rise to the magical behavior that responded to the fluidity of the life of the seasons, the harvests of the cycles or the fecundity

The truth is that nature in all its vital expressions is pure magic

To observe the birth of a plant, the transformation of the storm into sun or to listen to the song of the wind, it seems to make sense that our ancestors wanted to make those powers and energies theirs, as a vital attitude

that gained order and rhythm through the changing of the seasons

Our ancestors always recognized the soul of the earth and they knew to have a positive relationship with nature, is conducive to mental health and emotional health

They are now rediscovered strong relationships between the electromagnetic fields of the human heart and the earth

When these fields resonate at the same frequency, biophilia occurs, a love for all living organisms and that is the religion that I process
