Element of Air

Fear is excitement without breath.

– Robert Heller

The elements are our connection to Mother Earth. All living things are made up of earth, air, fire and water. When we connect to the elemental energies around us, we live in flow and solidify our connection to Source.

The element of air symbolizes our creativity and desires. While air can lift us up and breathe new life into our lungs, it cannot be confined by boundaries.

Air is represented in the east, where the sun rises, giving us the breath of life to birth new life and ideas.

Call upon the element of air and air archetypes to gain perspective and clarity. Air also facilitates communication effectively and the sharing of ideas.

Communication and ideas blow effortlessly through me.

Too Much Air

You tend to get scattered. You have great ideas, but need to work on manifesting them in tangible form.

Too Little Air

You may feel stuck and cringe at the thought of change. Make an effort to try new things.

If you need more air energy…

  • Take a aerial yoga or stretching class
