hamanic Wisdom ~ The 4 Elements Bring Nourishment for Modern Day Super Heroes
By Anahata of Shamangelic Healing
In this lifetime as we evolve from mortals into Spiritual Super Heroes, our sources for fuel will shift as well. In order to match the frequency of pure crystal light and to hold our composure and form in the midst of chaos, we need to be able to quickly assimilate energetic recharging and nourishment with maximum efficiency. There is no time to waste as our clear, centered and compassionate super powers are in great demand in our relationships, families, communities and all across the planet. These perfect super human “Foods” are abundant, easily accessible and quite naturally eco-conscious.
These 4 “Food” Groups go back to the wisdom of our ancient ancestors who tapped these resources for knowledge, relaxation, nourishment, surrender and empowerment. These ancient tools for limitless, consistent and potent nutrition take the form of The Four Elements ~ Water, Air, Fire and Earth. Our physical bodies are interwoven with a combination of these elements. We are fed at many levels by the presence of these resources in their various forms, inside and outside of our bodies. Whether we are aware of it or not, water, air, fire and earth are keeping us alive.
Over the centuries of industrialization our bodies have become desensitized to the frequencies of these valued and limitless energy stores. It is time to recalibrate our 5 senses and activate our 6th sense to all the wonders the elements have to offer our soul. Feast on the simple, profound and deep nourishment received from a refreshing jump in the river, a captivating sunset, a walk in the forest or a mountaintop meditation.
WATER invites surrender. Observing water’s fluid movements and changing form inspires one to apply these lessons to everyday situations. Spending more time watching, listening and playing in and around various forms of water such as waterfalls, oceans, lakes and rivers will certainly provide deep soul-level nourishment. To maximize the potency of water, utilize each of your senses individually to see, touch, taste, hear and smell the magic essence of water.
Immersing in a cold water plunge invigorates the entire being, while soaking in warm water relaxes the entire being. Staying hydrated aids our super human bodies with clear thought, efficient digestion, cellular cleansing, muscular flexibility, increased stamina and enhanced energy. Waters charged with crystals and blessed with specific intentions have been proven to send energetic messages directly to the cells. In sacred ceremonies, water is used to bless, purify and cleanse.
AIR provides us with Life Force. Due to increased urbanization and pollution, it is essential to move our bodies to fresh, clean air often and to breathe deeply. Depending on the plant life, presence of water, elevation, season and temperature, the variety of fresh air experiences are certainly diverse and abundant. The crisp winter morning air, a tropical salty ocean breeze, a dense pine forest or the wildflower desert of Sedona in spring time will invigorate the soul with a delicious treat for your lungs and entire body to enjoy.
Directing the quality of one’s breath is acknowledged as a pathway to inner peace and awakening by many cultures. The yogis have identified various breathing techniques to elicit a wide range of beneficial effects on the body, mind and spirit such as clarity, relaxation, vitality, longevity and balance.
FIRE warms the heart and soul and brings light to darkness. When the sun rises each day, it brings a reminder of new beginnings, hope and rebirth. At sunset, the sun teaches us to let go and surrender as a unique multicolored portrait unveils itself and then merges with the night sky. The practice of sun gazing, when done properly, is a powerful rejuvenating experience for the entire body while simultaneously realigning the Divine Sacred Heart within.
In sacred ceremony the element of fire is honored for its transformative powers. Offerings representing gratitude, prayers and release are placed in the fire which then transforms them, sending these messages gracefully into the heavens. Tribes since the beginning of time have danced around the fire, creating community, celebrating life and honoring nature.
EARTH provides a solid foundation of support on which we may stand our ground as Spiritual Super Heroes. “Pacha Mama” or Mother Earth offers her rich, fertile foundation within which to plant our personal cosmic seeds. She embraces those seeds, feeding them minerals and water allowing our roots to expand and grow. The purest gifts of Mother Earth are certainly her bounty of freshly grown fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts, seeds and roots untouched by industrial processing.
In sacred ceremony, Mother Earth is honored, blessed and thanked for all that she gives. Take off your shoes more often and feel her belly beneath your feet. Let the soil, rocks, sand or grass tickle your toes. Close your eyes and feel her strong, loving and consistent source of support and nourishment. Smell her flowers. Enjoy the shade of her trees. Listen to the songs of the joyful birds. Watch the butterflies as they dance blissfully by.
Imagine a respectful harmony between water, air, fire, earth, and all planetary life and spirit forms where a reciprocal exchange of energy, respect and love is shared. With a heightened sense of gratitude and the ability to recharge, reconnect and reemerge clearer, stronger and more energized than before, we will truly become Spiritual Super Heroes. Watching, feeling, experiencing and learning from the great wisdom of these elemental resources and recalibrating our relationship to them, will create the reality of Heaven on Earth.
The time to fully activate your super powers is here. Now more than ever, Mother Earth and her inhabitants need Spiritual Super Heroes energized and ready to serve. Fortunately, you have direct access to the ancient secret resources of Water, Air, Fire, Earth and Universal Spirit. Let’s fly!
