The wind pulls at my clothes and teases my hair. I hear the sounds of birds carried through the air. In summer’s heat I feel the wind’s cool relief and feel blessed to know her.
The element of Air is an intangible manifestation of movement, freshness, communication and intelligence. Air is connected to the mind, thoughts and dreams.
During meditation, we can visualize all the pain and hurt leaving our bodies via our breath. At the same time we can visualize all the positive, healing relief being brought to us and in us via our breath.
This is a true connection to the Element of Air.
As the seasons change, so can the energy of Air as an element.
In spring, Air helps us freshen ourselves and our homes. It also carries seeds and pollen on the wind to be spread across the land. In summer, drafts of air helps cool us down and gives us warm kisses on our cheeks. In fall, the air warns us of seasonal change. In winter, cold air can bite and whip, carrying storms with her.
Often we focus on Air in rituals to help bring mental clarity, focus, and starting anew. Learning, Intellect, Dreams, and Speech are all in the realm of Air.
When I light my incense or ring a bell, I invite air to blow over me and through me. With her power, I let negativity be blown out a window or door. The light, playfulness of the wind is welcomed in my circles.
