Air – our first taste of the world outside the water of our mother’s womb, as well as our last. With each inhalation we are moved into expansion, and with each exhalation, we soften into a state of release. Breath is a passage way and conduit to altered states ranging from anxiety, serenity, right through to ecstasy.
Air is the element of the mental plane – here we journey through shapeshifting perception, paradoxical questioning, and the labyrinths of genius. It is the builder of bridges, pollinating networks of relation and communication. It is here that we become the weavers of narrative.
The power of breath and thought is immense and often overlooked. Creation starts with an impulse, an idea, and from this space our intention permeates our chosen words. As Dr. Emoto demonstrated, if the vibration of gratitude manifests as one of the most beautiful water crystals, then it would follow that thoughts of appreciation would have a greatly positive impact on how we relate and communicate with ourselves, our cells, and one another.
Through careful attention to our thoughts and perceptions we are able to direct our focus to that which we most appreciate, and there is always something to appreciate. The more we direct our attention to this the more positively abundant our lives will be felt to be at any given moment.
