TRAVEL THEME: FOUR ELEMENTS

FIRE

Bonfire

FIRE PERFORMER 10

Fire is a purifying, masculine energy, and connected to strong will and energy. Fire both creates and destroys. Fire can heal or harm, and can bring about new life or destroy the old and worn.

WATER

PPG FOUNTAIN

OVERFLOWING WATERS

Water is a feminine energy.  Used for healing, cleansing, and purification.

AIR

FROM THE AIR

Clouds

Air is another element , connected to the soul and the breath of life. If you’re doing a working related to communication, wisdom or the powers of the mind, air is the element to focus on. Air carries away your troubles, blows away strife, and carries positive thoughts to those who are far away.

EARTH

Red Mountains of Sedona

GRAND CANYON 1

Earth is considered the ultimate feminine element. The Earth is fertile and stable.  As the earth turns, we can watch all the aspects of life take place in it: birth, life, death, and finally rebirth. The Earth is nurturing and stable, solid and firm, full of endurance and strength.

BE ENCOURAGED!  BE BLESSED!
