How to Empower Yourself Using Air Energy
Earth, water, fire, and air are the four elements of the Universe. They make up all that is and everything we are. Each element has specific, different properties that are found within our inner and outer worlds. Earth is associated with your root chakra, grounding and stability. Water is associated with your sacral chakra, emotion and intuition. Fire is associated with your solar plexus chakra, passion and inspiration and air is associated with your heart chakra, balance and forgiveness.
The Air element has the power to connect us. Air is my sign and so I will be getting a bit deeper into this one. Air symbolizes our heart, love, and acceptance. The season we relate to air is fall because it’s when leaves dance in the air, the air become lighter and begin to cozy up with our loved ones. It’s when our environment encourages us to gather with our community to share food, music and our gathered experiences from the year before.
Air signs are communicative, intelligent, perceptive, knowledgeable, love to learn, free thinking, imaginative, creative, harmonious, and often soul travelers. This source of life can also, at times, become a force of terrible destruction. When we harness air energy we learn to breathe and open our Soul to personal freedom. Air signs have a strong need to feel liberated and free, which is never to difficult for naturally born nomads like air signs.
Many air signs have a problem fitting into a regular order of their surroundings, no matter if it is their family, workplace, or country. The air signs main goal in life is often just to stop pleasing others, comparing and worrying about others opinions, so they can be able to follow their brightest and most liberating ideas. This is the element that connects all other elements. Air needs to be free to circle the Universe.
Air has a strong tendency to remain in higher frequencies/chakras, where everything is lighter and seems possible – “get your head out of the clouds” is something I heard most often as a kid. To hone the air energy yourself find a way to implement the ideas, intelligence and knowledge you have to make your dreams come alive. Stop talking and start doing concrete, practical moves towards fulfillment. Find your balanced by following a healthy daily routine with proper meals and physical activity. Think through every decision thoroughly and find clever solutions to any challenges. Allow yourself to look at “the big picture” when others cannot and embrace the changes before you.
Air is constantly in motion, even when you can’t see it. This is the same for the mind of a person born of the Air element. Of the four elements, Air is the most concentrated on thought. Air signs are witty and entertaining and are a welcomed guest at any party. They are not rooted in tradition however, and instead go with what makes sense. They don’t believe in doing something because “it’s how it has always been done.” Developing this “radical thinking” and quick mind will allow you to be the hero of your own story.
There are many different ways to connect with and balance the four elements in your body and life: eating certain foods, meditation, visualization, spending time with the elements in nature, or connecting with each elements symbology.
Heart opening yoga is an fast and effective way to connect you with the air element. As you move with your own flow, visualize your heart-opening and unconditional love flowing through you – this will connect you and as you move through these poses you will create green and blue light, opening you up to universal truth. I often recommend my clients spend at least three breaths in each pose while listening to a song they are drawn to:
- Ustrasana (Camel Pose)
- Dhanurasana (Bow Pose)
- Heart Bench (in a lying position place a block to raise your heart)
- Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward-Facing Dog)
- Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Bridge Pose)
- Halasana (Plow Pose)
- Bitilasana (Cow Pose)
- Matsyasana (Fish Pose)
- Natarajasana (Lord of The Dance)
- Chakrasana (Wheel Pose)
- Camatkarasana (Wild Thing)
