Element of Earth

Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children.

– Ancient Indian proverb

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 earth symbolises all knowing and wisdom. It provides powerful grounding and stabilising energy. Earth is represented in the north, where we also find paternal energy and our teachers.

Call upon the element of earth and earth archetypes for steady growth, strength and wisdom, and to illuminate the path ahead.
