You are aware of the four elements: fire, water, earth, and air.
These elements are thought to make up our world and rightly so, these elements say a lot about our personalities and our lives.
Think about this:
The fire from the sun keeps us warm. Water sustains life here on earth. The air let us breathe. While the earth supports us.
In witchcraft, these elements are linked to distinct qualities.
- Fire – the element of fire is said to bring qualities of passion, courage, activity, impulsiveness, creativity, and patience.
- Air – the element of air brings with it the qualities of intellect, communication, inventive, inquisitive, and flighty.
- Water – the element of water brings to the qualities of love, emotions, artistic, and empathy.
- Earth – the earth element brings together qualities of practicality, firmness, materialism, and groundedness.
In Astrology, the 12 zodiac signs are ruled by the elements.
- Fire – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
- Earth – Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo
- Water – Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio
- Air – Gemini, Aquarius, Libra
As you can see, the four elements are so powerful. Now, imagine using it for your spells to manifest your desires.
Use the Elements for Your Splits
The elements are essential to all magical work. When used in spells, they act as boosters for your intentions.
However, you cannot use just any element. You have to choose the right one for your spell. Based on the information mentioned above, those are the qualities of each element that can help you choose the right spell.
On the other hand, it will also be useful if you know how to control these elements. When I say “control,” I mean having control over yourself and balance in your life.
If you want to control the element of fire, you don’t have to start literally burning things and creating flames. Instead, fire is associated with passion, temper, etc. To master this element, you must be aware of your passions and how to direct them. Also, you should control your temper. The best way to master this element is to know how to express fiery emotions in creative ways.
Control of the World
The earth element represents the quality of being grounded, solid, practical, etc. To have control over this element, you must make an effort to be more practical in life. Do things that should be done in your life. Be grounded and firm.
Instead of letting your emotions flow like water, control the water element by controlling your emotions. Be more compassionate. Try not to let your emotions rule your life. Listen and be more in touch with your intuition.
To control the element of air, you must be aware of what comes out of your mouth. Learn to express your thoughts and emotions more effectively. Don’t give in to your negativities. Instead, apply your knowledge to your life.
Learning how to control these elemental energies will help you in spellcasting. This will also help you find an elemental balance.
Manifest Love In Your Life
Now, it’s time to learn how to use elemental spells. If you want love to enter your life, you will need to use the element that creates passion and that is fire.
It can be so easy to focus your mind on a specific person when you cast this spell. However, this is not how it works. Instead, I want you to focus on how the love you want makes you feel.
Things you need:
- Crystal Garnet
- Red/orange fabric to wear
- 2 red candles
- Grab a piece of paper. Write down what you want to feel when you get the kind of love you want. To help you, start your sentences with “I feel…”
- Light the candles and hold your crystal.
- Read what I wrote and feel the energy coming from the crystal. Infuse that energy with passion.
- Push the two candles together and it came out, “As I express my intention for love with the element of fire upon the universe, so shall it be. Let her harm no one.”
- Let your candles burn safely.
Manifest a New Beginning and Healing in Your Life
If you want to heal certain parts in your life or you just want a new beginning, then it is better to work with the element of water for spellcasting.
Water comes straight from the ground, it can start life and even end it. It heals, cleanses, and can also allow us to glimpse the psychic realm. It is purifying and emotional.
Things you need:
All you need is to simply be near water or a body of water
- Turn the water – even if it’s just in a glass, turn to him.
- Feel the water flowing through your body. Focus on the water within you. Imagine it is filled with water.
- Now, focus on your feelings when you are finally healed or when you finally have the new beginning you want.
- Cast the spell, “Here and now, I invoke the force of water, I seek the pure within that I can drink in the depth of change, relationship, nourishment and grace. I call you to wash away everything that binds you unnecessarily and to fluidly in this world. Water, that’s why I call you.”
If you want to clear your mind or just want to gain clarity on a particular subject, then you will need to work with the element of air.
Things you need:
- A yellow candle
- Clear quartz crystal
- Bunch of leaves or feathers
- Yellow or white cloth
- Write down the emotions you will feel when you get the clarity you want.
- Light your candle, pick up your crystal and read what you wrote as many times as you want.
- Feel the energy of the air around you.
- Place your crystal, pick up the leaves, and hold them to your forehead.
- Cast the spell, “As I say my intention for clarity with the element of air on the universe, so it shall be. Let her harm no one.”
Who doesn’t want more abundance and money in their life? We all do. To cast a spell to manifest these in your life, you will need to work with the earth element.
Things you need:
- Any crystal
- 1 green candle
- A pebble
- Write down your feelings when you have the abundance you want in your life.
- Light your candle, pick up your crystal and read what you wrote out loud as many times as you want.
- Feel the flow of abundant energy.
- Place your crystal and pick up your pebble. Cast the spell, “As I say my intention for abundance with the earth element on the universe, so it shall be. Let her harm no one.”
Now, these are simple spells that you can modify on your own. What matters here is to feel the flow of the elements and get in touch with your feelings when you finally get what you want.
