Your Energy and the Element of FIRE

“Messenger of the Sun! There is no warmth without thee, no fire without thee, and no life without thee. Green leaves of the trees do worship thee and through thee the tiny wheat kernel become a river of golden grass moving with the wind. Holy messenger of the Earthly Mother, enter the holy temple within me and give me the Fire of Life!”” Teachings of the Elect Book 4

When it comes to the element of Fire, nothing outshines the Sun. While there are other forms of fire, the sun has been honored and/or worshiped in many cultures throughout history. In folklore, each year the masculine Sun, who was warm and powerful, would cover the feminine Earth who was fertile and nurturing, and life renewed itself again. This time was often referred to as the greening of the Earth.

Your Body and Mother EARTH

Gifts from the table of Mother Earth

Thou shalt celebrate a daily feast with all the gifts of the Messenger of Earth: The golden wheat and corn, the purple grapes of autumn, the ripe fruits of the trees, the amber honey of the bees. Quote from Book #4 The Teachings of the Elect

The earth has always represented abundance, strength and stability. In rituals an object may be buried in the ground as an offering, or to allow its energies to disperse and be absorbed by Mother Earth. But by far, the Earth’s greatest gift to us, is the gift of good health. We plant tiny seeds in her rich soil and are rewarded with foods that nourish and heal the body.

Your Mind and the Element of AIR

In the midst of the fresh air of the forest and fields, there shalt thou find the messenger of Air. Patiently she waits for thee to leave the dank and crowded holes of the city. Seek her then and draw deeply of the healing draft which she doth offer thee.”

Teachings of the Elect Book #4

This article contains excerpts from Talking to the Goddess by Kardia Zoe

Air is an element through which you receive information about the world around you. If you need help with issues related to communication, wisdom or the powers of the mind, Air is the element to focus on. But how do we incorporate the element of Air into our work with the Divine?

Your Emotions and WATER

It is easier to reflect on Divine wisdom when your mind and body are still like a clear mountain pond.

“…for the body is as a mountain pond that reflects the sun when it is still and clear; but when it is full of mud and stones, it reflects nothing.”

There is a spiritual aspect of water that few fully understand. In Wicca and many other nature-based beliefs, water represents emotions. This article is focused on the link between emotions and the element of water, and it explores how we can use that link to heal ourselves and our Mother Earth.

Akashic Records and Your SPIRIT

Exploring the Akashic Records

“For only with the eyes of the spirit can we see those golden threads which link us with all life everywhere.” Quote from Teachings of the Elect

Our spirit is more than just the thought-energy within us. It is actually linked to a universal network of energy. This network has been referred to by many names, including the Akashic Records, the Book of Life, the Universal Mind and the Field. It has been described as a universal filing system that has been recording every occurring thought, word and action since the beginning of time. Today, scientists might think of this record as the DNA of the universe. We can debate all day about how to describe it or what to call it, but what is most important is that we have the ability to connect to this source of Divine wisdom through the Spirit.

Intuition – Your Direct Line to a Higher Power

This article contains excerpts from Talking to the Goddess by Kardia Zoe

An old phone line in the forest. Does anyone else feel the urge to call Mother Nature?

Intuition is an important line of communication to the Divine. It’s the ability to know or sense something without the use of rational processes. This ability has also been referred to as a gut-feeling, your inner-voice, your higher-self, or even your guardian angel. The name you give this quiet voice within really doesn’t matter, as long as you understand that this is how the Divine often communicates with you. Learning to listen to and follow your intuition can provide you with the wisdom and guidance of a higher power as you face the challenges of everyday life.

One With the Goddess

Excerpt from Talking to the Goddess by Kardia Zoe

“With the eyes and ears of the spirit do you see and hear the sights and sounds of the kingdom of the Earthly Mother: The blue sky where dwells the messenger of Air, the foaming river where flows the messenger of Water, the golden light which streams from the messenger of Sun. And I tell you truly, all these are within you as well as without; for your breath, your blood, the fire of life within you, all are one with the Earthly Mother.” Quote from Book #4 Teaching of the Elect

The quote above is from a manuscript that is nearly 2000 years old. . In this ancient writing we are told to use the eyes and ears of the spirit to see and hear the Earthly Mother (aka Goddess) and her messengers.  At first I did not truly know what this meant. Were the eyes and ears of the spirit different from those of our physical body? Then I realized what this passage was trying to say.

Using Divination Tools for Divine Guidance

Excerpt from Talking to the Goddess by Kardia Zoe

Divination usually involves the use of an object or objects to gain answers to questions, or to see events, that are not perceptible to the average person. The use of interpretive tools can help the Divine relay guidance through your inner spirit or higher-self.

Secret Messages From Plants

“…that most precious gift of your Earthly Mother is the grass beneath your feet, even that grass which you tread upon without thought. Humble and meek is this messenger of Earth, for she has no wings to fly, nor golden rays of light to pierce the mist. But great is her strength and vast is her domain, for she covers the earth with her power…” Gospel of Peace Book 4

To receive messages from plants you must listen with your body, mind and spirit. The humble grass you walk on can help you relax and renew your energy. Trees will invite you to take comfort in their shade on a hot summer day or offer you protection from the rain or wind on a stormy afternoon. The beauty and aroma of flowers can bring you pleasant feelings and help draw your thoughts away from the day’s stress. Many plants and herbs have healing powers to share with you. The more you learn about them, the healthier your life can be.
