5 Crocodile/IMIX stirs our memory with the ancient wisdom that we are born of Spirit into matter. Elemental forces support our soul’s evolution. The first four elements are Earth, Water, Fire and Air. We are empowered through the fifth element – the Element of Spirit, the ether, or space as defined by Ayurveda tradition. Spirit is the binding force that connects us all.
These are the 5 basic elements of alchemy. Alchemy was thought to be a scientific pursuit with the objective of transforming base metals into gold. Though the real pursuit, veiled to escape religious scrutiny, was to discover the means for Spirit to transcend from Matter… the evolution of the Soul. Crocodile, asks us to remember that our true identity is that of Spirit existing in a material body.
We are drawn to offer a blessing and hold in gratitude all that nourishes our Spirit. Stand ready to receive a Spirit blessing. so that you may create peace and balance between the heart of the heaven and heart of the earth, extending love to all beneath the one World Tree.
