Yesterday morning I woke up to an intuitive dream. It was about using the elements to heal. As I was writing the details down in my journal I was swept up by the flow of information and brought to a place where an awareness came to be known that the 4 elements of earth, air, water, and fire/light correlate to 4 of the energy bodies that we all posses. As a healer I sometimes explain to clients that receiving healing energy can affect you on several different levels such as emotionally, mentally, physically, and even spiritually. These are the 4 energetic bodies that I am talking about and their correspondence with the elements insightfully made sense.
The element of water correlates to our emotional body. This “body” is made up of the emotional energy we store, produce, and expel. Emotions can be like water, fluid and flowing, sometimes a trickle and sometimes a raging river.
The element of air correlates with our mental body. This is the space in which all of our mental energy is also stored, produced, and exerted. Like air our thoughts come and go, they blow in and then blow out. Sometimes they are wispy and sometimes they too are strong and torrent.
The element of earth correlates with the physical body. This perhaps is the easiest to understand. We all know that we have a physical body, the other bodies, although real, may be a bit abstract to think of. Same as the other bodies, energy is also stored here in our physical body, it is produced within this body and released from this body as well. And with the same spectrum contrast, sometimes gentle and sometimes with paramount strength.
The fourth element of which we all are familiar with is the element of fire, which I define interchangeably as light, and it correlates with our spiritual body. That is our soul, our spirit, our eternal self, and it too is a store house of energy. It too can produce an effect and have its own releases, sometimes karmic, as perhaps we have held onto something for many life times and are now able to let it go.
Perhaps in time I will know more about this fascinating subject concerning the body, the elements, and healing and be able to share more with you but for now take it for what it is a further confirmation that we too are made up of the same elements as the earth. It seems you and her, are not so different.
