Living Alchemy: Earth

Better late than never! It’s been a trying past week or two, but now, I’m finally going to address how to truly incorporate Earth into your life with alchemy! I’m going to go over what Earth is in detail first, and I don’t intend to waste any time! Let’s jump straight in!

As I detailed in my last post on the subject, Earth in alchemy is equated to salt and the color black. Earth is the element of the physical body and the physical world, as well as of our senses and what they are able to perceive. Earth is all things solid and tangible, that which cannot be changed through will alone.

However, this aspect of Earth is, in short, an illusion. We are told all our lives that you can’t get something by wanting it enough, that there are things in this world you just can’t change. While I would say there are things that one person can’t just will to life, we as human beings have much, much more power than we usually give ourselves credit for.

So, how do we overcome the trappings of Earth? Well, you need to start by immersing yourself in the element! Only by understanding Earth can you accept it and move past it; it’s there for a reason, after all! You can start by being more mindful of diet and exercise, for one thing, and paying close attention to your senses and what stimulates them.

Another key aspect to integrating the element of Earth is to go and take a few walks. A couple of times a week, go and take a walk somewhere, preferably where you can get in-touch with nature. Don’t try to think too hard about anything or fixate on any one aspect of your environment. Just empty your mind and be present in the moment, as if it’s a walking meditation!

And that’s all I have to say on Earth for this post! I’ll try to make my post on Water come along a bit sooner. I hope this helps you all with your practice!

May the Tree of Life always shelter you!

Sugar Shakedown

Yesterday was the first day in such a long time that I managed to go the whole day without any sugary treats! No candy, no cookies, no sugary breakfast cereal! Plus I did 100 squats and lots of cardio! I’m going to try to keep it up so that I can blast the rest of my excess fat and help clear up my acne. I want to look my best when I go back to college next month!

Status Update

I’ve started doing more yoga and qigong, and it’s very revitalizing! I’ve also started working out more. Yesterday I did 300 side-to-side hops and 50 jumping jacks, as well as 35 squats, 35 calf lifts, and 35 bridges! I think I might go for a jog today, if the weather stays nice. I’ve unfortunately been kind of getting out-of-touch with my magic, so I think I’m going to draw some sigils and do a tarot reading today. I also haven’t been enjoying nearly enough tea, and need to change that!

Dreaming of banana pancakes. These are so quick, easy, light and healthy. Banana and egg. That’s it! I love them topped with coconut yogurt and berries, plus a drizzle of maple syrup. With a matcha latte using @plenishcleanse cashew milk. www.pursuitofwellbeing.blog ➡️ Link in bio.

Last night I made turkey burgers, turkey is such a good lean protein but it’s not my favourite. Yet this was delicious and juicy. I made them with feta, sundried tomatoes, onion, garlic, spices and seasoning. Rocket, houmous, avocado, tomato chutney. www.pursuitofwellbeing.blog ➡️ Link in bio.
