The Air Element

The Air Element

Air represents the very breath we breathe, it is essential to our life force.  We cannot stop breathing, it happens automatically whether we think about it or not. 

Air is a metaphor for life – we breath in fresh air and newness and we release what is stale, always in balance, always in perfect harmony.

Imagine now, that you have pulled this Air element card from the Mystical Shaman Oracle.  Sit quietly and in a sacred way and read The Essence, The Invitation, and the Medicine.  Then ask yourself why this card is the perfect card for you today.  What is it showing you?  Ask yourself this question three times and write down the answers.  Allow yourself to go deeper and deeper each time you ask yourself the question:  Why is this card the perfect card for me today? Allow yourself to be surprised and filled with wonder as this ancient medicine informs you.

The Essence

The symbol of the Wind represents the element of air; it rules communication, thought, song, and inspired ideas. It also signifies change with qualities both positive and negative. The wind blows from each of the four directions, and there are different qualities bestowed by each:

  • South: carrying a new sense of trust, helping you gently begin to discard habits and parts of you that are no longer needed
  • West: calling you to more introspection, to a willingness to make final decisions, to let go of attachment and ego desires
  • North: moving to bring you wisdom and strength
  • East: carrying clarity of vision and purpose

Whichever way the wind is blowing for you, the message, which the wind whispers or shouts, is a challenge. It may take courage at first to turn and face the wind, but you will find exultation in moving toward it and receiving its lessons.

The Invitation

When the spirit of the Wind comes calling, it’s a sign of change. Perhaps you need to change your mind about something. Perhaps an old way of doing things has become automatic, and now that you’ve gained greater clarity, you can make a new choice. Regardless of what the change is, you can expect to be understood and to have clear communication with others at this time. Ideas are solid, and the shift that is being called for is in the highest good of all.

The Medicine

When Wind comes as medicine, you’re being invited to recognize the value of chaos. Windstorms provide necessary chaos to clear the air and spread seeds so plants and trees can take root in new fields. Right now it may seem as if your world has been turned upside down, but this is a temporary storm that will blow over. Perhaps communication has broken down between you and another, or your many to-do lists are overwhelming you. The medicine is to simplify, slow down, course correct if you need to, and wait out the storm to clean things up. Just know that all storms have great value if you can remain neutral during their course. Greater clarity and good things will come from it all. Remember: this too shall pass.

What does the Air Element have to teach you today?
