Elemental Energies

The two basic polarities in energies are the male and the female. Now add to that the energies of the elements of earth, air, fire and water and see what you get. The differences may seem hard to detect until you practice, but then you will be able to feel it.

There will be times when you want to summon energies that are more earthy, or more watery, for example. It all depends on our needs at the time. When we call the strength into our bodies, and we connect with those energies, we can bring ourselves into balance with exactly what we need.

Sense the difference between feminine fire and masculine fire? Can you sense the difference between feminine air and masculine air? These are the things that we know by experience. No amount of thinking about them will replace experiencing them.

Man is a model of the cosmos, containing all of those elements, and when we stimulate the call to one of them, our bodies respond. Try this, draw in fire through your eyes to inspire you. Draw up energy from the earth to ground you. Call in water through the pores of your skin to move you. Call in air to bring you knowledge to guide you. Get a feel for the elements.
