How To Meditate On Four Elements?
Once you have gathered all the four elements, here is what you will need to do.
Arrange Your Meditation Space And Get Comfortable
Find a good meditation spot. You can do this meditation at home or outdoors, sitting or standing. The choice is yours. Place your elements in front of you. You can arrange them in line or place them to create a circle.
Get comfortable, close your eyes, and start to breathe deeply. Doing this will help you calm down and get into a meditative state.
Take Deep And Slow Breaths
As you breathe, try to connect with yourself and the world around you without trying to control your thoughts.
When you are ready, start to meditate on each of the elements.
Open your eyes and pick up the feather that represents the air element. While holding it in your hands, have a short look at it and close your eyes again.
Feel the lightness of this symbol and all the air around you. Keep breathing while thinking about the air, what it gives you and how it makes you feel. Take deep and slow breaths to allow the air to fill your lungs.
Next, pick up the water element. It can be a bowl or a glass of water. Submerge your fingers into the water. If you are using a bowl, you can submerge your hand in water up to the wrist.
The point is feeling the water and being in contact with it. Close your eyes while keeping your fingers in water, breathe and think about the importance of this element for you.
Pick up the plant or flower you have as the earth symbol. If it has soil on it, feel it with your hands. Close your eyes while holding the plant. Think about the importance of staying grounded. Appreciate all the goodness that the earth provides us with.
For the fire element meditation, hold the candle in your hands and stare at the flickering flame. As you watch the mesmerizing fire, imagine it burning inside you. This will make you think about the love and passion you have inside.
