Spirit Element Helper: Fire

Since the beginning, the elements of earth, water, fire, and air have been powerful forces that connect us to our planet, to our spirits, and to each other, offering guidance for our lives.

I am a flame of fire, blazing with passionate love.
I am a spark of light, illuminating the deepest truth.
–Early Welsh Song

FIRE blazes brightly for us today, urging us to do more of the things that energize and impassion us, that call forth our vital life energy.

Take some time to name the activities in your life that fire you up. What makes you feel more vitally alive? What are the bright flames that light up your life? When we engage in the things that hold deep spirit fire and meaning for us, our life-force is fed and sustained, and we kindle a light in what Jung calls “the darkness of mere being.”

By Cait Johnson, author of Earth, Water, Fire, and Air, (SkyLight Paths, 2002).

Lovely, nothing like the vibrant flames of fire for camping or relaxing and watching the embers glow and add warmth. One can watch the flames and embers glow with delightful and vivid colour.

A pleasant and contemplative post but what gets my fire up is a past member dumping spam into a meditative site about her online business. Wonder if she has a profile?
