Elements

Elemental Prayers and Blessings

 

When all the elements of Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Spirit are aligned in your creations, they come into form, almost, magically. This level of harmony and alignment between the forces provides a powerful synergy that draws the creation into form.

MarthaGrahamPanel-420_420_310_s_c1_center_top_0_0“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action: and because there is only one of you in all time this expression is unique. If you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it.

You must keep that channel open. It is not for you to determine how good it is, nor how valuable, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is for you to keep it yours, clearly, and directly.”

Martha Graham
