With The Elements
As a solitary practitioner
of witchcraft for over eighteen years I have been exposed to many
magical traditions. I work with a wide variety of traditions and
do not solely adhere to particular practice. Much of my magikal
journey comes from being raised by a mother who is pagan.
The universal elements are a very important
part of magikal ritual. Many rituals, if not all, call for the invocation
of the elements. All matter on the physical plane is made up of
the same elements. These elements are inside as well as outside
of ourselves. When calling on the elements outside us we are also
tapping into the elements inside. You are actually a great source
of elemental power. Upon realization and acceptance of this you
may find a greater power than you have known before. The union of
the external and the internal can create amazing results.
Many practitioners get in touch with one particular element that
speaks to them, one they are called to. Under one's astrological
sign one is considered to have an element personally assigned, but
do not limit yourself. All elements and their magikal properties
are at everyone's disposal. Calling in the elements on the outside
creates a communion with the source of the elements inside of you.
As important as drawing energy from outside you is, one must not
underestimate the power you already possess. All that is in the
universe also dwells within you. This is why we have the power to
charge herbs, sacred stones and magikal tools. When calling out
for power, you might want to take a moment to look within. If you
are able to open the exchange of elemental energy, the relationship
between the outside and internal power can be symbiotic. The magikal
result of this can be far greater than what you originally intended.
Therefore, call from outside and work from within.
All the elements have different properties serving different purposes
in magikal work. When you call for these properties from outside
you are simply calling on additional influences to enhance or strengthen
what is already at work within you. To call upon these elements
is merely a way to add to the sacred power that you already have.
Never underestimate your own power. All magik starts with you. Drawing
from outside yourself merely attracts power to connect with what
is already there. The convergence of your magik, from inside and
out, can be greater than you've ever imagined. You are earth, you
are water, you are air, you are fire and you certainly are spirit.
