The Spring Equinox Meditation on the Four Elements
This ceremony focused on the Four Elements, Earth, Water, Fire and Air, and our thankfulness for them.
Our bodies are micocosms containing traces of minerals....iron, calcium; of course water; fire in the chemical reactions within our cells that release energy from the nutrients we consume; and of course air and the exchange of gases across the cells in our lungs.
From this inward connection of the elements to the old Gods and Goddesses of the elements, and places on this planet which we are thankful for: the rich black earth of Holland Marsh, the cycle of water from clouds to the oceans, the fire of volcanoes and hot springs, the winds and upper atmosphere that protects our beautiful planet.
The Pachamama stick for the ceremonial fire was a wonderful curling branch of Hazel wood and wheat, it looked like a sculpture!
