Introduction to Elemental Arts
Elemental Arts refers to practices that relies on the controlling and manipulation of either one or more form of the elements. It is one of the most common Arts seen in today’s spiritual society.
The element could be as well-known like fire, or less well known like crystal. Whatever elements you utilizes make sure you are well practiced in it or you are likely to hurt yourself rather than performing a trick
To practice this Art you must understand the element of choice, be like it, feel it and is one with it. Once you are in the same state as the element will you be able to manipulate, control and/or put it to use.
==The Mindset ==
Be persistent, hardworking and keep trying. There is no need to clear your mind but it does help.
==The Journey ==
This is the guided journey for practitioner to identify their first elements.
===Find your power'' ===
Still your mind and clear your thoughts, relax and become at ease. Breathe in and out in slow count. Look in and out and look at a point just in front of you. In that point, call forth energy to gather there until it forms a ball. Once it stabilizes, reach out with your mind and senses its nature. If you can’t sense it then reach out with your hand and touch it to see what nature it has. You might feel a burning sensation or freezing feeling. Whatever it is, it will hint to you what element/s it is that you are in tune with. If for some reason more than one orbs appear, it probably means you are in tune with more than one type of elements.
