Why We Work with the Elements

The Elements—Earth, Air, Fire and Water—are true nourishment for our spirit. This is equally true for three-element and five-element systems also found in shamanic cultures around the globe. When we open up to relationship with the elements that nourishes spirit, spirit grows strong within us. The “voice” of a strong spirit can actually be heard over all of the noise in the cacophonous conversation of life.

Join us this week as host and shaman, Christina Pratt, explores the value of working with the elements in our daily life and creative ways to do that effectively. Right relationship with the elements allows their energy to flow into our lives, creating balance by smoothing out our own excesses and scarcities. As essence energies the elements offer gifts we can access through relationship with them. We gain courage and flow, the ability to change as needed without losing your true self, and presence and breath, the reminder that it is always possible to release and begin a new.
