Four Worlds

No Comment

In the First World – the World of Fire – you are setting off on your life journey. Your baggage contains only your Divine Contract – your mission – and the desire to fulfil exactly what you have chosen to undertake in this life.

Fire represents spiritual energy and passion. It is the fuel, sometimes called the elan vital – the vital force that drives us forward. Of course, some people are more fiery than others – you could look at your astrological birth chart to check the potential of your own fire qualities. But everyone can draw on this force, it lives in all of us. In the yogic tradition it is said to reside like a snake, coiled at the base of the spine, waiting to be released. Many people fail to realise how much power they have to achieve their own desires. Think about the energy coiled in every atom of every cell in your physical body – remember what happens when an atom is split and that energy is released!

In our modern, Western life-styles, our Fire energy is often repressed. In order to maintain necessary everyday routines, we keep a lid on our desires and our passions. Think of the vitality in a young child, brimming with possibilities and excitement, then think how quickly that fades away, once school insists they dress a certain way and stick to restrictive timetables. Social formulas help humans build communities and they help us work together effectively for the common good. But the same formulas inhibit us from self-expression and making choices based on our true, spiritual desires.

We need to reclaim our heritage – our divinity! How can you do this? How can you feel spiritual Fire coursing through your veins, every day?

  • Take time out to review your life-style, identifying the experiences you will have in the course of one week.
  • Using a scale of 0 to 10, where 10 is highest, give these experiences stars for Fire content. Does going to the supermarket get 10 stars for lighting your Fire? More likely a big fat zero!
  • Are there any experiences you normally expect to include in your week that do light your Fire? Or, if there’s nothing that sets you ablaze, is there anything you do that at least creates a lively spark, with future promise?
  • If there’s nothing that regularly kindles your inner Fire, when do you expect such an experience? Only once a year when you’re on your holidays? Is that enough?

Make a list of all the activities you can imagine that will make you light up! Identify how feasible it would be to incorporate some of them into your weekly timetable.

Spiritual energy drives our life engine. We all need to stoke the fuel that keeps the home fires burning, then we can get on with our mission. Without energy we get stuck in the doldrums, depressed and, very often, ill-health can follow. So, before you can start planning your journey through the next landscape, you must sort out the best ways to maintain contact with the zone that supports all future activities:

  • Commit to a regular, daily meditation routine. It’s not just about relaxation, it’s about repeatedly accessing Divine Source, where all the juice comes from! Like a morning jog or a few minutes exercise, this is essential practice to maintain peak spiritual fitness.
  • Choose activities that keep your body moving in a way that gives you pleasure.
  • Make sure you do some deep breathing exercises every morning to wake up your whole system.
  • Check your diet. We are all different, but spiritual practitioners throughout the centuries have recommended a vegetarian or vegan diet. Don’t force yourself into a particular diet, but do take heed – the standard Western diet is heavy with processed food, gluten and dairy, all of which dampen your inner Fire. Fresh foods, uncooked or lightly cooked, are full of life energy.
  • Choose to read, listen to or watch inspiring stories that make you feel on message to get your own mission together. Inspiration is contageous!

Remember how the poet Wordsworth says we arrived in this world “trailing clouds of glory”. Don’t hide your light under a bushel. SHINE!

The Earth element is the most dense, seemingly solid element. We tend to feel the three-dimensional world is fixed and settled but, like the other elements, Earth is living, growing and malleable. Everything is energy, some things vibrate more slowly than others and seem immoveable, but an advanced yogi can walk through a wall and […]

  • Comforting and sharing in the kingdom of Water Monday 9 April, 2018
    The kingdom of Water can soothe and nurture us, but it can also take our breath away and dampen our Fire. The human body is mostly made of water, which is an essential life-giving element, alongside the air we require for breathing. We are nourished by water and, when we step into a healing pool, […]
