The environmental elements of earth, air, fire, water and ether are our resources for wellbeing. These external resources feed our internal resources. The physical and energy body consists of all these 5 elements. So what does each element mean and how does it relate to our every day function? Well lets start with the Fire element….
In many traditions particularly ancient like Egyptian and Hindu, the Sun is worshiped as a God. This is for a good reason. It is the source of all life. Without the sun there is no life. It is a special frequency in the universe, which we are all connected to. It is an energetic vibration which sustains us. The universal light that brings strengths and joy.
The sun is a the centre of our solar system, therefore everything spins around it and is dependent on the nourishment it provides to the whole solar system and its inhabitants.
The fire element refers to a resource or energy that encourages us to be active in ourselves and in our environment.
It is the element of the 3rd Chakra - Manipura. This chakra is responsible for how we feel about ourselves and what we do with ourselves. The inner fire.The colour yellow. Often a the colour of a smily face! :) It is a very happy energy, which makes us feel good. So if you feeling depleted and lethargic, bring in some fire energy into your life!!!
So how can you get more of this energy? Going outside and simply being in the sun is an obvious thing to do, even if its for a few minutes, as it can give you an energetic boost. The sun is a powerful energy source. Like a battery, it can charge us up for the day. It gives us life force or prana, which allows us to feel alive. It stimulates our intellect, motivation and creativity. It is a positive light energy which warms our aura.
If for whatever reason there is no sun, perhaps its the gloom of winter, then you can visualise the sun and feel its rays on your body. It can be just as beneficial accessing it through the visualisation, as its simply a different connection with the element.
I like to directly ask the sun to nourish me with energy that I need, feel myself charging like the battery and then when its complete, thank the sun with gratitude for providing me with this energy.
You can also work with a flame by connecting to its fire energy. However I prefer the sun for general wellbeing, whereas the fire I find its better for specific healing methods. Whatever works for you, is totally fine.
So get to know the fire and Sun energy. Befriend it and allow it to shine within and see how it make you feel :)
Much love and light,
