There is only one air element – we borrow it for a few moments, return it and begin anew. The restorative energy of air is represented by the fresh beginnings contained in each morning and every spring. The element of air is a conduit for communicating our intelligence and creativity; we honor air by sharing our dreams and wishes in the world.
If you feel burdened, the playful energy of air will lift you up and grant you a more detached, clearer perspective. Meditate upon a transparent quartz stone or a feather, listen to wind song, gaze at the endless blue sky, or breathe in the delicious fragrance of windswept plants like lavender, rosemary, sweetgrass, peppermint and dill.
In Ireland sudden gusts of wind preceded by a loud humming sound like thousands of bees, were known as sidhe (fairywinds); farmers would cross themselves as this fairy host passed.
Fairy spirits known as sylphs were thought to create artistic clouds in the air with their wings and to alter weather patterns. You may be able to spot their slender shapes while looking at wispy cirrus clouds - harbingers of a weather change.
Dryads are female air elementals who live in and protect the trees. Usually seen as wisps of light, their favorite time to make magic is at full moon. These playful fairies favor willows, oaks, ashes, thorns, buckeyes and elders. You can let them help you access your divine energy by paying a visit to a special grove of trees.
Something in the air this morning made me feel like flying...
