Eclectic Elementals: The Magic & Spirituality of the Elements

This is not a specifically named, established path like Asatru, Kabbalah, Hermeticism, Kemeticism, Wicca or Santeria. Yet the Elemental Path can be adapted to any practice, traditional or modern, and the Elements are indeed present and utilized in all practices and systems. It can also be, as it is for me, its own completely original, self-contained and self-defined path. It is the path of peeking behind all the named and well-presented curtains; of getting to the heart of All and of connecting to and honoring the mystical, essential building blocks of everything in existence, from the planet to our souls. No matter where your belief ultimately leads you or how you define it, the Elements are a part of it and, if nothing else, a great place to start.

Elemental Poetry: Fire in the Sea

 

 Do you think there is no fire in the sea?
I tell you fire and water are fierce lovers, together in me.
There are boiling cauldrons in the deep, the scalding seeps
that burn eternally in the benthic darkness, the crushing deep.

No mermaid is but a singing lily-child, fluid and meek;
The flowing and trickling of water might seem to you soft and weak,
but she will flood you, drown you, break you upon the rocks.
The fire flares in her heart, her soul, and sings to the man that mocks
and she will take him down to the lockers, the soul cages, the very end.

None can withstand the gaze that burns through the heart,
that sees the truth, the lies, the hidden wiles and denials
for all is connected and rippling together, nothing is truly apart.
We move in the moving element, far faster it carries the sound
and we See what they cannot, even when no light can be found.

The light is within, the fire burns bright and smolders low
and the liquid particles dance and frenzy faster than you can see
as the breath of the sacred dragon bubbles and boils the sea.
Above or Below, fire high or low, ever it burns, ever it glows.
I tell you, dear one, there is fire in the sea,
I tell you the blood and the passion of the primal one
ever flow and burn, ever they know and yearn
They are deep and bright in me.
