Week Nine: Who Am I? Part V: ETHER We use the five great elements for a deeper understanding of ourselves to bring us closer to our true being. While the four primary elements earth, water, fire and air are rather physical in nature and within us, generally they are easier for one to connect with and understand. Ether on the other hand is quite mystical. It is considered “the fundamental element” since the purpose of the four primary elements is to cleanse the energy from the earth through all the elements to ether, to raise our consciousness and vibrational spirit.  Some may refer to ether as empty space or void, this is not exactly correct. To refer to it this way would mean there is nothing there, where in fact energy is what is there. Think of ether like a human energy field around us, our aura, our essence, our spirit and our soul. Ether is the element that holds all things in place, from the earth to the stars and plants.  This energy is our spirit, often we can connect with ether energy when we tune into our intuition, our inner knowing beyond thoughts. Unlocking our ether energy within us opens us to our source of creative spirit.  How well we organize and manage the energy of the 5 great elements in our being will determine how strong we are. Connecting to our ether energy is the enlightened mind, and it raises our energetic vibrations within so we may transmit that level of energy to the world around us.  ETHER MEDITATION  To start, sitting up tall, back straight, close your eyes, breathe in through the nose filling the stomach and out through the mouth, slowing down your breathing and clearing your mind. Now take yourself away to a quiet private natural setting, imagine you are in your very special place, your sacred space. A place that brings you joy.  Your place is unique to you.  Now with your sacred space in mind…   I am Ether Be the energy between you and the trees, between you and the sea, between you and the stars Take the energy of the earth, draw it into the breath up into the core of your body and into your throat chakra Open up your throat chakra and open yourself to express your true being  Breathe in and energetically cleanse through the elements, from earth, water, fire, air and now expand that pure energy into ether Be still, be calm, listen for your inner voice, your intuition Tap into your creative source, and open yourself to express it freely now imagine a giant invisible bubble around you, your ”human energy field”, and feel your energy transmit all around you Feel your human energy field radiate with love and light as your energy freely bursts out of you  As we transition from one phase of our lives to another, feel the rise of your energy as you reach the next level of growth I am the basis of my creation I know my truth and I willingly share it I am guided with ease to my deepest purpose in this life I am ether, the spirit and soul of my whole being. Bring yourself back to the here and now and bring the energy of ether into your day.
