EARTH AIR FIRE WATER SPIRIT.
Some witches today honour the Five Sacred elements of which the universe is composed: Air, Fire, water, earth and spirit. Although these can be seen in their raw form, such as the air we breath the ground we walk on, the first four elements are also experienced as components of complex forms.
A tree for exsample, is composed of earth, water, fire, and air. The fifth element, Spirit- that which connects all things- cause the first four elements to conjoin in particular proportions and forms to produce life and the universe as we know it. Spirit is the sacred weaver of the elements and as the connection is, along with the other four, an equal cause and part of the universe. It is also the great web of life that joins all beings to eachother.
