This morning I did a reading with some new cards I just got ~ Elemental Forces of Creation. I am very excited about these cards ~ I love working with the elements and The Elementals!
As I said in my last oracle post ~
As you know by now, we are all about Balance. And the Ascended Master most closely associated with Balance is Lady Portia.
According to Inner Light-Workers (http://www.innerlightworkers.co.uk/ascendedmasters/mastersmep.htm), Portia “embodies Divine Justice through Divine Opportunity and so is also known as the Goddess of Justice and the Goddess of Opportunity. It is she that is characterised holding the scales of justice above buildings such as London’s Old Bailey. “Justice” is to be found at the balance point of thought and feeling, and so together with the hierarchs of Libra (whose sign of the zodiac is of course the set of scales) her role is to teach humanity to attain balance of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies through the attributes of the 4 elements of earth, water, air and fire.”
We’ve been talking a lot about the four elements and balancing our four lower bodies and so I began doing card readings using the four directions as they correspond to the elements, starting with West* and moving clockwise (these correspondences apply in the northern hemisphere).

In this reading, West represents the emotional body (Water), North is the physical body (Earth), East is the mental body (Air), and South represents the spiritual body (Fire). In the center is a card for Spirit, and this represents a summary and information about the spiritual journey ~ it ties the other cards together.
I asked the Elementals what message they have for Humanity in this moment.
As you can see, “Relationship to Others” appears in the emotional body. I feel this is related to the Soul Family/Soul Group connections we have been talking about this week. More Soul Family connections are manifesting and being recognized now than ever before and this is important because such connections lift us up and also transmute energy for Humanity and strengthen The Grid.
Because relationships tend to reflect our emotional patterns, in this case, Water is saying that it’s time to look at our relationships and see how they are working for us. Do they reflect the Love we have for ourselves? Do they lift us up like gentle waves? This is an excellent time to ask yourself if you are in Unity ~ The River of Oneness. When in Unity, you can feel other Beings all around you. They bouy you ~ keep you afloat. You can feel them when you are going with the flow.
“When you learn to see your relationships as teachers, you take a giant step in the development of emotional maturity and your relationships often improve tremendously.”
“Tending” turns up in the physical body. Earth is suggesting that you nuture yourself and tend to your physical body. “Tending” makes me think of a garden. The changes we are all going through are affecting our physical bodies a great deal and I feel this card is specifically saying that it’s time to turn the soil. This really means to add some new, fresh material to what is already present. What is Earth saying to you? It could be something as simple as drinking more water or spending more time outdoors. Maybe you’ve been thinking about making a change in your diet. If you think of your physical body as a garden that needs tending, you will know what to do at this time.
“It is important to fully honor matter and the physical realm and tend to your earthly realm.”
“Belief System” shows up in the mental body. Air is telling us that we need to release any remaining belief systems if we want to fly. We know that this is something that is very important for Humanity right now as many are struggling because their belief systems are keeping them attached to the old paradigm.
“Learning to consciously examine your beliefs and determine if they are true for you is one way of intentionally setting the vibrational tone for your life.”
“Altered States” appears in the spiritual body. This is a significant action card! The Elementals are telling us to elevate our Awareness by entering a different state of consciousness. Are you on Fire? Do you feel excitement and passion in your spirit?
“There are many powerful ways to enter an altered state: through ceremony, drumming, trance dance, breath work, mask making, mandala making, journeywork, chanting, sexuality, plant teachers, and more. This non-ordinary awareness brings deep gifts of inner knowing.”
The “Co-Creation” card is in the center. This Spirit card ties the other messages together and also tells us more about where we are in our Spiritual Journey. The Co-Creation card materializing here is huge! Spirit is reminding us that we are Co-Creating The Golden Age! If you are in balance and in Unity, your co-creations will be beautiful expressions of Love honored by all.
In this instance, Spirit says that if we explore our Soul Family connections, nurture ourselves, let go of belief systems, and raise our Awareness by entering a different state of consciousness, we will increase our creative powers dramatically. If you are balanced and your intentions are pure, your co-creative powers are immeasurable. Spirit is asking you this right now: What will you co-create today?
“When you align with spirit to manifest or create, you are working in co-creative union with all that is. Alignment with spirit moves energy into forms in ways previously unimaginable.”
