There is no learning curve with the elements. All that is required is the desire to make a conscious connection with them. Just ask for a direct connection to the element and it will show you all the ways you interact with it on a daily basis. You'll be surprised how often you'll get an shot of insight while doing a seemingly mundane task once you've established your connection. Oh! Speaking of connections, I recently was invited to write about connecting with Libra in it's context of the air or mental realm. This exploration gave me the opportunity to practice what I preach with a trip to the laundromat!

2. The elements always take me to my next level of personal and spiritual growth.
I've often talked about this and it still remains one of the most compelling and engaging reasons I continue to work with the elements when other tools i once found valuable faded away. In my experience, working with the elements got me ready to receive the idea in a way that made it doable for me. Through my journal practice and weekly oracle readings, I had prepared the ground in my inner world clearing away the rocks of self doubt and the roots of outdated beliefs so the seed of this idea could take root.
3. I often access deeper levels of my own wisdom and act on that wisdom quicker.
What I've noticed is that when I have a deep insight, it is usually something very simple that doesn't require a lot of prep work to implement. Take for example toe 100 People Project I mentioned above. I was contemplating ways to deepen my connection with the people in my orbit and find out how I could be of better service to them. I asked for elemental guidance on how to do that and within a few days the idea of talking for 30 minutes via Skype or phone call came via someone's Facebook status! A simple idea right? At first I filed it away for 'someday' when I got more systems in place and a few weeks past but with the guidance of my personal weekly Elemental Forces of Creation Oracle reading, Fire kept telling me to 'Move' and I did. What I've learned about myself is I default into thinking a thing has to be hard for it to be of value when building Goddess Tea House but that's not true at all. Going deeper I began to look into other areas of my life where I made the actions harder than they needed to be in order to 'prove' the actions valuable to myself which led to another question...how can taking action for myself be filled with more grace and ease?
