Exploring Elemental Magic

Do you feel most comfortable when out in nature, and passionate about protecting it? 

Are you connected to animals, would take in every stray if you could and wouldn’t dream of killing an errant spider or bug that wandered into your home?

Are you highly sensitive but also fun-loving and a little mischievous?

If this sounds like you then there’s a good chance that you are an incarnated elemental.

Elementals are commonly known as mythical creatures such as fairies, elves, gnomes, unicorns and mermaids which are ethereal, therefore largely invisible to most people. However they are responsible for the calm and connected feelings you have when surrounded by nature. Compare this to how you feel in a bustling city street (where elementals do not like to go) and you notice a much lower vibration. Although you can’t see them, they are powerful beings responsible for protecting and maintaining the plant and animal kingdoms.

16th century Swiss alchemist Paracelsus identified the four main archetypes as belonging to each of the four main elements. Gnome was of the Earth, Undine of the Water, Sylph of the Air and Salamander of Fire. These magical creatures live among trees and plants, in lakes and rivers, oceans and mountains. Their forms vary between different folklore and alchemy within these elements, with some being more common than others, but they have appeared to exist since the beginning of time.

Elementals vibrate at a higher level which is why they are invisible to many, and they vary in size depending on the roles they play. Generally they are quite child-like and love to focus on play and fun, often playing tricks on others. Many children are able to seem them because they have such open minds and also share these characteristics. Their belief often disappears as adults tell them they’re not real.

It is only the more evolved of the elementals that can incarnate into human form because they learn to become more serious and realise that as protectors of Mother Earth, they have a bigger job to do educating humans on how to interact with nature and prevent them from destroying it. This makes them very passionate and committed about achieving their purpose. You will find these people at environmental rallies, beach clean-up days, picking up litter, involved in animal rescue.

I’m sure everyone has had a magical experience in nature, whether it’s leaning against the trunk of a beautiful tree, being awestruck by the sight of a powerful waterfall, swimming in a crystal clear stream, watching a thunderstorm roll in over the mountains, enjoying a colourful sunset, witnessing the power of the ocean as waves break on the beach, staring into a campfire. Elemental beings are part of all these experiences and are there to help us. All we need to do is keep an open-mind and see things from a different perspective when we’re in their environment, then we will start to see them everywhere, perhaps even hear them.

Next time you’re out in nature, look carefully and see if you can notice this unseen world. Magic is all around us and whether or not you believe you are an incarnated elemental on a mission or just someone who enjoys the energy of the four elements, take time to relax and absorb what the natural world has to offer. It really is the ultimate wellbeing experience.

Are You Finding Life A Challenge?

Do you have a person or a situation in your life that constantly challenges you? No matter how hard you try to deal with it, just when you think it’s all under control and you have a positive outlook, something else happens to bring you right back down again? This is the ebb and flow of life. These people and situations are there to teach lessons, but sometimes don’t you just wish you could have a lesson-free month? I know I do.

The reality is that life can’t be positive all the time. If every day was perfect we would lose sight of what that represents. The only reason we appreciate good days is because we compare them to the bad days, which makes them so much sweeter. The key is to be grateful for every experience, good or bad, because they are all happening for a reason. They are all designed to help us learn and grow.

As part of the growth process we need to be mindful of the fact that we could be unconsciously sabotaging our happiness because a past life experience is at the root of our problem. Past life regression really does give valuable insight into why we are the way we are. Some people are a little afraid of what they might find when they start delving into the past. However, the unconscious mind is protective and will only show you what you need to learn at a particular time. Otherwise, you would just remember every past life and recognise every person you have ever met – the loved ones and the ones who have wronged you. We don’t need to know all of that information. We only need to discover the parts that affect our future growth.  Perhaps these are the parts that we have become stuck with because we never moved on.

We don’t remember every single thing we’ve experienced even in this lifetime. We only retain the parts that are significant to our learning. We know that we have had many experiences as we’ve grown and have learned from them, without having to remember every event. It’s the same with past lives. So don’t be afraid to allow your mind to open up to the information that is required to help you grow because it’s valuable and potentially vital to your future success.

For example, it is easier to deal with relationships issues when you understand that these are ongoing over many lifetimes. Perhaps that over-protective parent may not seem quite so annoying once you know that in a past life they had witnessed your death and not been able to prevent it. Or it explains why you can have an intense, almost irrational attraction to someone you barely know. You could find out why you dislike whole races or cultures of people or why when you travel, you know exactly where to go in places you have never visited before. The possibilities and benefits are endless.

We are all part of a giant universal school with every lifetime being a different grade. We work our way up from kindergarten and eventually reach university where we graduate from the school of life – some people call this “enlightenment”.  

If you are fearful of what you might find, remember you don’t have to experience pain or trauma again. You’ve done that already. You only need to recognise the events and the lessons which can very effectively allow physical, emotional and psychological healing. This allows you to move on and achieve your highest goals and live your happiest life. Most people are curious and fascinated in what they discover during a regression. Many have life-changing epiphanies that allow them to realise their true purpose this time around. Others leave with a new-found respect for their family, friends and even those who they are not so fond of. Everyone has a purpose and I believe this is one of the most effective methods of finding out what that is.

I am looking forward to sharing future blog posts on this subject with you to allow more education on this process and to dispel fears that are holding you back from discovering your true inner self.
