Mastering Elemental Balance in Witchcraft

Developing a connection with the Elements will enable you to balance yourself. Working with the Elements makes you very aware of your own imbalances in for example bad habits or your relationships and communication with others. One of the chief aims of a Witch is to attempt to master the Elements and bring them into balance.

Each of the Elements has a different energy. A Spell is a way of attracting energy and focusing it with your will to make changes.

Elemental energy is in all things – the oceans, storms, rocks, plants, animals and us. We are all connected and all one. Some people are in unison and can master the Elements and wield their energies more effectively.

Almost anyone can learn to use this energy effectively as long as they attune themselves to the Elements.

Being fully aware and in tune with the Elements allows us to balance ourselves, our qualities, our emotions, our reactions and interconnections with others and ourselves. This can take a lifetime to achieve, but is an aspiration worth striving for. As with anything in life, practice makes perfect.

Completing Step Five of the Green Witches Coven

In some ways all Magic can be seen as meditation. Meditation is simply focusing the mind. Magic is focusing the mind with intent to manifest change.

This meditation is to strengthen your relationship to the Elements. This can have immeasurable results. The Elements resonate with our human qualities, so bringing them into balance helps you become a more rounded person. This meditation can help you to focus on those Elements, which have qualities you need. This exercise is ideally carried out within a natural environment on a sunny day close to water but a quiet place indoors will do just as well.

If you are outdoors look towards the Element of Air in the sky around you, the Element of Fire from the power of the Sun, the Element of Water from the ocean, lake or river and the Element of Earth from the ground beneath you.*If you are indoors relax, stand comfortably, close your eyes and breathe deeply and slowly.

As you breathe in feel the air fill your lungs and sense the air becoming part of you. Allow the air within you to connect to the air around you. Think of how the Element of Air is expressed in your life through communication, ideas and thoughts.

As you sense the warmth of the Sun feel the fire within your body to connect to the Element of Fire. Visualize the power of Fire in your life through action, courage and passion.

Be aware that your body is nearly 70% water. Sense the blood flowing through your veins, feel your heart beating, pumping life round your body. Feel how the emotions connected to the Element of Water manifests in your life through intuition, love and sensitivity.

As you feel the ground beneath you know that you are connected to the earth. Bend your knees a little and feel your feet firmly on the ground. Be aware of your body, its physicality. Become aware of how the Element of Earth manifests in your life; your body and your environment.
