Elemental Magick by D. J. Conway
For over a thousand years, alchemists and magicians have recognized and used the four Elements or building blocks of the universe. Most people who have studied in the Pagan/New Age fields know that there are four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, with a nebulous fifth Element, Spirit. But for many of these students, there appears to be no practical purpose in learning much about the Elements, except perhaps as a basic but necessary building block for further knowledge, and so they run through the learning process as quickly as possible. This book demonstrates that these Elements demand further exploration and inquiry because they are so basic and rudimentary to the world in which we live. Author D.J. Conway explains in depth the energies and forces that lie behind each of the Elements, the Elements that provide a framework for literally everything in the universe, from what we would call natural events to magick. This book will also explain the all-important and powerful Elemental Spirits that belong to each Element and how these Spirits frequently work with humans in workings that interest them. The reader will see how these connections between Elements and their representative Spirits allow the magickal energy to flow in a continuous circle around the Element of Spirit, or the Creative Void. Finally, by learning to balance the Elements with the aid of Elemental Spirits, the reader will better understand the larger process of balancing our lives, our towns and cities, and the environment, with the ultimate hope of disseminating this balance to encompass and embrace the entire world. The very health and balance of our world hinges on our understanding, respect for, and proper utilization of these basic Elements!
