Episode 102 - Earth Element


The root element that holds the other elements.
The most commonly used without realizing it. Just walking outside in bare feet is earth magic.
Casting a circle also uses the earth element because salt and crystals are often used but also because we generally cast circles downward, drawing on that earth energy.
It’s also important in grounding and centering, because the earth’s energy is neutral.
