Take a moment to inhale the air around you, you will become calmer, your mind will settle and you will be better able to focus. This is the power of the air element. Wyra (wind) is the magical element that purifies your mental body.
We might forgo from eating for a while or stay thirsty for a short period but we can endure just a few minutes failing to breathe air. When blended with blood (Water element) the air purifies, allowing our physical life to last longer (thereby helping the Earth element) and together with the fire (temperature) the air thrusts us forward enhancing our awareness. The air through its elementary beings brings about wind, twister, refreshing breezes among others.
Whenever we feel the wind, let’s become the wind and join it to travel far away to higher and purer regions.
As humans, we can survive without food for approximately four to six weeks, we can even survive without water for between two and seven days, without air for about three minutes but if we don’t have our inner fire, our spirit, we cannot survive at all. Nina (fire) is the last element we connect and work with on our workshops but the most essential.
