of lesson V
Exploring the Earth element(1).
The workplace around yourself.
Exploring the Earth element(2).
Being one with consciousness.
The practice of the four elements.
- With this
lesson you will enter the realms of the earth element, or of the consciousness.
This is the realm where things become manifest. It is a synthesis of the
other three elements. In the divine name YOD HE VAU HE, the earth element
is in the second HE.
- As I have
pointed out above, the five is the first number that allows the tracing
of a polygon in more than one way. You can trace a regular pentagon or
a pentagram. The pentagram, of course, is a pentagon with triangles extended
from it. This alone shows the synthesis of fire and water. More precisely,
the earth element is a synthesis of the three elements that appear before
manifestation occurs: fire, water, and air. Earth is structured, or cold.
is the element of the material planes. You may say that things that
are conscious are things material. This means, of course, that you
bring the material planes with yourself when you explore the planes
that are not material. It is your penetrating consciousness that makes
these planes material. In other words: all planes have characteristics
of all other planes within themselves. Everything is an infinite complexity
of the elements that constitute the phenomena. If you develop an energy
that you intend to materialize, you need to proceed from the elements
above the material plane: causal-emanation, mental-creation, astral-formation,
- The material plane is the world of forms. This world of forms we can see as
composed of two sub-planes: the dense material plane and the etheric plane.
In the relation between these two sub planes, again, you can see the four
elements at play. You find more information concerning these interrelations
in my course "magick of the future."
the Earth Element
Before you begin with your practice of aligning the elements, including the consciousness
or earth element, you will explore the earth element by itself. Here a
brief repetition of key words that relate to the Earth element. Keep these
in mind when you practice.
Consciousness, the world of forms, the material plane.
and the Hebrew letter HE.
consciousness which is the essence of manifestation.
Workspace around yourself:
Before you include the earth element in your aligning of the four elements, you
will expand your outer realm. You will now add the utensils that represent
the element of earth.
Again you draw a circle around yourself. Trace a triangle on the table. You
may surround this triangle with a circle. Put a candle and wand into the
triangle to represent the fire element. Also include the elemental talisman
(a triangle) that you have previously charged. To represent the water
element you put a cup with water in the circle. Include the elemental
talisman of water, i.e., the pentagon. For the air element you put an
incense burner inside the triangle. You may add a dagger or a sword. Include
the elemental talisman for air, the square. For the earth element, put
the elemental talisman of earth, the pentagram, in the circle. Put a crystal
in the center of this pentagram. Instead of the crystal you may use a
dish with earth. For practices that go beyond the sphere of this planet,
a tektite (meteorite) or a moldovite (a glass meteorite) is ideal.
In the previous chapter I have stressed that the triangle of manifestation
on the altar (the large triangle) does not only represent the will of
the magician (the fire element) that contains the spirit, or energy, within
this space. It does also represent the trinity of the elements beyond
that which is manifest and conscious: fire, water, and air. To represent
the synthesis of the three elements into the earth element, I suggest
the following set up: Put the utensils that represent the fire element
into the corner of the triangle that is farthest away from you. Put the
water utensils into the left corner and the air utensils into the right
corner. Then put the earth utensils into the middle of the triangle.
After you have set up your altar, you charge it with your awareness that this
setup is going to attract the elemental energies of earth as soon as you
set the whole operation in motion by lighting the candles and the incense.
As incense I suggest frankincense or sandalwood.
To charge this outer realm for your practices with the earth element, you
imagine yourself drawing energies of the earth element from the universe
and projecting it into the triangle. See these energies as having the
color brown. You may also use the colors white or black. White represents
the combination of the three elemental colors, while black represents
earth as our mother: the womb from which the forms are coming forth. This
color connects with the first manifestation of consciousness at the threshold
Proceed with the practice of projecting earth energies until you feel good about
the amount of energy that you have accumulated in this way. Then proceed
with the practice by exploring the realm of the earth element in the workspace
the Earth Element.
First you establish your inner elemental realm. You see yourself in this place,
surrounded by a protective sphere. This sphere will surround you for as
long as you explore the realms of the earth element. To your right side
you see a gate in the shape of a brown pentagram. At a later time you
may explore the earth element by entering a white or a black pentagram.
Go through this gate and enter the realms of the earth element. At first
you may perceive earth in many different forms of manifestation. Later
new experiences will come to you. As you travel in this realm, keep your
attention open to the various impressions, visions, and conscious experience,
that you may perceive. If you interact with spirits of the earth element,
or gnomes, do not fall for their promises. At some later point you will
understand the reason why. Leave the realm of the earth element whenever
you want to do so. After closing the practice, write down your experiences
that you have in this realm for your records.
While you are travelling in your inner realm, be aware that this realm is closely
connected with the outer realm and with the cosmic realms of the earth
element. The separation into three different realms is an artificial one
that sees three different aspects of one and the same reality.
One with Consciousness
Imagine yourself being surrounded by a circle, or sphere. On your right side you
notice the pentagram of brown color. In it you see the gate to the earth
element and to the world of conscious forms. You see earth spirits, of
gnomes together with many varied forms of earth. You may perceive yourself
as being surrounded by crystals.
to yourself six times, in your mind:
am all consciousness.
repeating for at least ten times, and meditate. Then write your experiences
into your diary. After you have practices this exercise for ten times,
you can proceed with the practice of the four elements.
Practice of the four Elements
front of you, you see a triangle in flaming red color. Within the triangle
you notice fire in its many forms, perhaps also fire spirits, i.e.,
Salamanders. You know that fire relates to the world of emanation and
to your will. Repeat six times to yourself:
all will. I am all fire.
your left, you see a pentagon in watery blue color. In tentagon you
notice water in many forms and water spirits, or Undines. Repeat six
all emotions. I am all water.
yourself you see a yellow airy square. In the square you notice air
in many forms and Sylphs, or spirits of the air. Repeat six times:
all mind. I am all air.
your right you see a brown earthy pentagram. In the pentagram you notice
earth in many forms and gnomes, spirits of the earth. Repeat six times:
all consciousness. I am all earth.
emotions, mind, and consciousness are aligned and One.
Practice this sequence at least three times before you go on to the next lessons.
Be aware of the inner realms of each element as you tune into it. At
a later point of your work, these visualized realms will take more and
more some abstract form. For now visualization is quite helpful.
