In many traditions, ether was thought to be the fifth element and the primal source of energy from which all other elements were created.
In Japan this element is expressed as the Void and the Babylonians referred to it as the Sky. Among North American Lakotas, it is Center, smoke-breath, or life force. Modern pagans use the Sanskrit term akasha to describe ether, believing that without akasha there is no spirit, no soul, and no magic. Meaning “to radiate or shine,” akasha is represented as the uppermost element in their star pentagon symbol.
Hindu, Tibetan and Buddhist writings refer to the akashic records as a non physical book of life, the etheric field in which all human memory as well as the history of the cosmos is stored.
When we make a space for stillness into our lives, we set the stage for harnessing the power of ether. Through meditation, prayer, music, mantras and sacred syllables we are able to speak beyond matter to the subtle spiritual forces of the universe.
Not only can these practices help us hold the other four elements in balance but they can also provide us the keys for transforming unconsciousness into awareness, darkness into light, and judgment into love.
