Ways to Embrace the Elements and Raise Your Vibration

We are blessed with the elements to reconnect with Mother Earth, our Ancestors, and ourselves. Without connection to the Earth and elements we live out of balance. Here are some easy ways to embrace the elements and raise your personal vibration.


WATER


1. Spend time by the ocean, lakes, rivers, ponds, waterfalls, any water areas

2. Do a shower meditation - picturing yourself under a waterfall that is cascading down around you. First imagine the water releasing any negative vibrations and then visualize the water infusing you with energy and strength

3. Set a bowl of salt water on your altar

4. Spend time in a hot spring, pool, jacuzzi

5. Mindfully wash your hands

6. Listen to the sound of rain or play rain sounds

7. Dance in the rain - especially under the moon!
