Elemental Balance: North Energies

cup-2315555_1280

In the North, we receive with the mind through clarity and caring. Our mind is an open cup, ready to receive from many viewing points and perspectives. When we are open only to one viewing point, we can get tunnel vision. The more ideas and concepts we can receive with our minds, the greater will be our capacity to see many different perspectives and therefore, gain more clarity.  If our minds get cluttered with too many thoughts or stuck in a pattern of thinking, we can pray to the winds to blow away the cobwebs and clear our minds.  In addition, we can look to the reflections each World’s north energies to discover other ways of receiving with our minds.

The precious gems are holders-receivers in the North.  We put them in our jewelry, in breastplates, in amulets, in talismans, so they will hold what we as humans determine they will. They are molded and hold meaning which they have received from varying cultures and uses. When humans wear gems, they act as a healer by receiving negative energy.

Fruits and Flowers, which are the giver-receivers, sit in the North of the Plant World wheel.  They give away their beauty, and their scent, which is air in the North.  They also receive.  All alchemists know that if you put flowers and fruits in any kind of magickal circle – church, lodge, marriage ceremony, funeral – they receive or absorb any negative energy that might be present.  If the atmosphere is impure, flowers and fruits will wither and rot quickly

The four-leggeds, the runners who are double receivers sit in the north of the Animal World wheel.  They are in perfect balance within themselves and with everything around them.  They know when the weather is going to change or a storm is brewing or a natural catastrophe is about to happen.  They receive energy, very often absorbing human emotions.  If your pets are in the area where you are doing body work, healing work, crystal work, medicine work, or magickal ceremony, they will soak up every bit of negative energy.  Your animals will literally die for you.

We incarnate into the north race with the opportunity to learn to receive like the wind in the North, to develop multiple perceptions, and to use one of the greatest gifts of humanity – an open and imaginative mind.

Five Reflections: Wind Element

17_1006 wind reflection

We can go to the wind to clear our head, to release the mindless chatter and to find new perspective.

Go outside and put your face to the wind.
Stand with your feet firmly planted.
Close your eyes and say hello.
Ask for a message, listen and learn.
Raise your arms up and out.
Move with the wind, as the wind.
Be flexible, relaxed and let the wind dance you.
Gentle whisper,
Howling gale,
Relentless pushing,
Wildly whipping,
Still presence.
In silence.
Become the wind.

The Tungashilah are all the blood relations of our toushilahey, our spirit selves and personalities from every lifetime Since Always and For Always.

In the North, we receive with the mind through clarity and caring. Our mind is an open cup, ready to receive from many viewing points and perspectives. When we are open only to one viewing point, we can get tunnel vision. The more ideas and concepts we can receive with our minds, the greater will be our capacity to see many different perspectives and therefore, gain more clarity.

Fact about dogs: They possess up to 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses, compared to about six million in us. And the part of a dog’s brain that is devoted to analyzing smells is, proportionally speaking, 40 times greater than ours.  That’s a lot more receiving than humans are even capable of.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Animals

Across from the Plants and the Waters, sitting in the North, are the Sacred Animals. They are the fourth Power and the second children of the Sun and the Earth. The Song they sing is one that is carried on the Sacred Winds which blow fiercely through our minds, like a hurricane and its howling of Awakening. Sometimes the winds blow gentle and soft and whisper Clarity.

Inspiration

“The “power” of anything is its
essence and how it gives away and
touches others with beauty.

We gain clarity of who we truly are
in the wheel of life
through the reflection of the
powers of the directions.”
