ELEMENTAL AIR: Domain of Spirit; Realm of Magic & Muse

Updated: Sep 21



The Element of Air

And the Lack Thereof

Inhale...exhale...

Balanced...precarious...

Powerful...yielding...

Stable...flighty..

Reverent...playful...

Suspending...sinking...

Soaring...falling...


Breathe in...Breathe out...

Breathe in...Breathe out...

Breathe in...Breathe out...




Air...and the complete lack thereof...



Domain of Spirit

It is that most untouchable place--neither addicted to applause nor crippled by criticism. It is the purest essence of our nature. That space where we simply...ARE.


Some call it chi or ki. Some call it soul...energy...the life force that animates our flesh & bone...Higher Self...connection with the Divine.



It is the fullness of an inhalation,

and it is the bottom of complete emptying.

It is the Void of creation before the Muse speaks. In that place, anything and everything is possible. And then suddenly--inspiration! The flutter of wings and the wonder-filled gasp of an indrawn breath.

AFFIRMATIONS

JUDGE NOT TODAY



LET IT BE - Meditative Movement & Breathing on stormy days


All the Elements transform

Each in its unique way.


Realm of Magic & Muse

This is the art of Metamorphosis, a magic act that requires drawing within, curling up in the dark, and taking a long rest (which isn't really rest at all) before emerging.

Now with wings.



This is Sublimation--elevating something base into the Sublime.


It is Inspiration--both the act of inhaling, and that miraculous moment of receiving a bwong on the head from the Muse.


This is the realm of imagination, music, singing, sighing, lying down with a satisfied exhalation to sleep & dream before awakening to create again.

It is the subconscious made manifest.

It is Creation incarnate.

🎶 My Musical Muses 🎶



Air Dance

  • Float, fly, soar, more...

  • Initiates from the breath.

  • Built upon the stable foundation of Earth, follows the same natural pathways with suspended arms and reactive upper body.

  • Standing on one leg, relevé (tiptoes), arms like wings or holding a bubble, turns & spins.

  • Skip, bounce, jump, leap, twirl.


  • Balanced, risky, light, ethereal, flighty, playful, soft.

  • Veils, fans, fanveils, wings, flow toys.
