I share the following lesson with much thanks, ultimately to the Source of All. This came to me as an introductory exercise. At the time I began practicing it, I also practiced basic soft qi’gong exercises daily, which you can learn at local workshops. However you integrate this practice into your life over time, be sure to stay grounded in the moments that makeup life: feel gravity, feel humility, enjoy and be thankful with the world. May peace be upon you.
The elements may be experienced in anything and direct awareness of such will allow for alchemical awareness and incredibly enhanced simplicity in all matters of life. The following is the element, the synonymous organ, color, and sound. The practice is to feel the individual organ, radiate the color, and vocalize the sound. You will understand the purpose after performing it.
Fire – Heart – Red – HAW
Air – Lungs – White – SSSS
Water – Kidneys – Blue – CHUY
Earth – Spleen – Yellow – CHUW
Ether – Liver – Green – SHHH
After feeling, visualizing, and vocalizing each of these you are to visualize each of the colors forming a ball of energy above your head. This ball will be black, or a dark light, and this dark light is the secret substance by which all things are a product of and is the key to all things. You will visualize your aurora as the colors of the five elements, and a second aurora above that which is that dark light. The dark light will find its way into your crown, at the top of your head, and into your brain.”
[The incorporation of the 6th element into this ritual is unnecessary; personally I practice it as instructed above, but I have been advised that, for most folks not coming from the Orient, the visualization of only the 5 colored aura to wrap up the ritual is more appropriate.]
“To briefly explain the elements (and by no means comprehensively but you’ll have to do the work of recognizing them yourself):
Fire – consumes, radiates, illuminates, destroys.
Air – carries other elements, change, the result of Fire & Water.
Water – flexibility, depth, fluidity.
Earth – grounding, the result of the other four elements combined.
Ether – that which holds all together. the OM if you will, sound, frequency, spirit, etc.
The passive elements, those subject to their surroundings, are water and earth.
The active elements, those which initiate change, are fire and air.
This may be observed in all things. Let me know how this goes for you.”
