The Elemental Goddess
She is the universal Womb of Becoming, the omniscient Great Cosmic Mother, the Creatrix of all things, God the Mother, the Divine Feminine Principle. She is both primordial and eternal, forming and reforming materiality through the three gunas: tamas (darkness), rajas (activity), and sattva (beingness). She incubates Life, creating all manner of manifestation, in all cycles of Being.
For the Love of Goddess
The heart of Goddess has no boundaries. Her love is unconditional,
Gifting each soul its specific DNA to express consciousness—
And with free will, create a world unto itself.
Sophia, Isis, Hathor, Mary, Quan Yin, Tara, White Buffalo Woman. . .
All the countless names the nameless One wears emanate from
Darkness in a ray of colorless Light igniting life.
Coming forth from Her ineffable Mystery,
Each Being discovers their divine heart within,
Each heart reflecting the Love of Goddess.

Overview of the Elements
Five elements comprise the Divine Creatrix’ toolbox for Her creative play and display of consciousness. The elements combine in multitudinous ways to create the reality in which we live. They are:
or SPACE or Aether represents Spirit, that which transcends materiality, naturally encompassing all that is manifest. It is the Void from which all emanates, our point of origin existing throughout all creation. Akasha is the fifth element, the binding part that runs through all matter, and it is also the collective unconscious of life-forms which records in the “Akashic Records.” The word itself is Persian/East Indian and means “inner space.”
The Elements emerge from Akasha, the realm of potentiality: of promise, of paths not yet taken, of unformed galaxies, of outer and inner space. Akasha is present within our bodies; it is the spark of life, the unknowable force called the “soul,” which is a bit of Akashic energy housed in the physical body. Primarily, Akasha is unbeingness.
Its energy, which extends everywhere throughout the universe, has not yet achieved form and substance. It’s the primal source of energy that creates and fuels the elements. It contains complete, balanced yin/yang (feminine/masculine) energy: Earth, Air, Fire and Water.
represents the Intent that sets our course in the right direction. The element of Fire is both creative and destructive. Fire, unlike the other elements, does not exist in a natural state. Its physical form can only take place by consuming some other element. Fire is the transformer, converting the energy of other objects into other forms: heat, light, ash, and smoke.
Fire is a yang element, its aspects being change, passion, creativity, motivation, will power, drive, sexuality and sensuality. It is the element of authority and leadership.
represents the Desire that fuels and motivates our lives. Water, is a great necessity, without it nothing can live. Such is the greatness of water that spiritual regeneration cannot be done without it. Water is a cleansing, healing, psychic, and loving element. It is the yin element of emotion and subconscious, of purification, intuition, mysteries of the self, compassion and family. It imbues psychic ability; water can be used as a means of scrying or as an object for meditation.
represents the Opportunity for expansion of consciousness. Air is the manifestation of movement, freshness, communication and intelligence. Sound is another manifestation of this invisible element. Air is the power of the mind, the force of intellect, inspiration and imagination. It is about ideas, knowledge, dreams and wishes. Air is yang, an element of new life and new possibilities, governing the magic of the four winds: North, South, East and West. It is the vital spirit passing through and giving life to all things.
represents the Result of our intention, desires and actions. Earth is made fruitful by the other elements and the heavens, and brings forth all things of itself. It is the centre, foundation and mother of all things. Earth is the element of stability, foundations and of the body. It is the realm of wisdom, knowledge, strength, growth and prosperity. It is also the physical Earth on which we live and the very heart of life. It is a yin element essential in spells and Rituals of prosperity, business, fertility and stability.
