Earth Element Ritual Inspiration

“Touch the earth, love the earth, honour the earth, her plains, her valleys, her hills…Rest your spirit in her solitary places.”    
~Henry Beston, The Outermost House: A Year of Life on the Great Beach of Cape Cod

“Natural life is the nourishing soil of the soul…It is the body, the feeling, the instincts, which connects us with the soil. ”    
~C.G. Jung

The Full Moon in Taurus reminds us to touch, to feel, to sense...We are sensing, sensual beings who are inseparable from our environment. Energy flows in, around, and through us, and we are never separate from our surroundings.

The more we are pulled to be hasty, or 'careless', the more rewarding it is to slow down and bring stillness andmindfulness to every pursuit. Here are some snippets of inspiration for taking care of our sensing natures:

~Getting quiet for 2 minutes — no music, no other people, nothing
~Feeling bare feet on the floor or grass
~Looking at a tree
~Sitting or laying on the ground
~Breathing intentionally for 1 minute
~A walk outside
~Focusing on the food you’re eating (aka mindful eating)
~Drinking water and paying attention to how it feels
~Getting the sleep you need
~Putting on a favorite song and moving your bod

You can also place objects that represent the Earth element around your home or on your altar to balance out your space and remind you to check in with yourself. Things like:

~Plants and flowers
~Himalayan salt lamps or tealight holders
~Greens and earth tones


“Don’t dismiss the elements. Water soothes and heals. Air refreshes and revives. Earth grounds and holds. Fire is a burning reminder of our own will and creative power. Swallow their spells. There’s a certain sweet comfort in knowing that you belong to them all.”
