Listening for insights and guidance can seem intimidating at first but I'm happy to give you some pointers that you can use right now.
As I began developing an active relationship with the elements, I was surprised to discover how much my understanding of them grew when I connected to them via my daily cuppa. What was a lovely past time has now developed into a rich connection time that I cherish. You can create your own ritual tea party by being very present as you prepare your cup of tea. Take a deep inhale of the fragrance of the tea you're about to brew. Be mindful of the reasons why you chose your favorite cup. Stay present and listen as the water boils. What is each of the elements telling you about how they work together to bring that cup of tea to life? How can you apply that insight to your goals & dreams?
2. Go Outside
This is the easiest way by far to connect with all the elements at once. Take a blanket and sit on the ground. Settle in with a few deep breaths as you think about each element individually (earth, water, air, fire, spirit) and collectively. Then with journal and pen in hand, ask them "what do I need to know about...?" and wait for the answers to rise up from within you. You may notice a leaf falling, or you may hear water flowing. The breeze may kiss your cheek or the sun may come out from behind a cloud and shine on you triggering the answer to your questions.
3.. Sweat Your Prayers
There is something enlivening about connecting to the elements through your body temple that brings the right answers to the surface just when you need them. Select some music (I highly recommend James Asher's CD Feet in the Soil or for a little guidance Gabrielle Roth's CD "Endless Wave I") and allow your body to just move without any prescribed steps while opening to receive the answers you need. Then jot down some notes on your findings.
I hope you found these tips useful and if you find yourself stuck or in need of deeper guidance, please consider scheduling an Elemental Forces of Creation Oracle Reading with me.
