The Four Elements of the Wise
Working with the Magickal Powers of Earth, Air, Water, Fire
by Ivo Dominguez, Jr. Foreword by Courtney Weber
The four elements are the pillars that uphold the manifest world and anchor spirit to matter. They are associated with a wide range of spiritual entities, from small elementals to divine beings.
This book explores the consciousness of the elements, which provides a system of understanding that supports most of the magic of the West and paganism. The use of the elements in a wide range of systems and practices will be examined. Much has been written about the four elements already; this book offers new teachings for newcomers and long-time practitioners alike.
Each of the four elements are explored in depth, including how they interact and change as they rise on the planes. Practical applications for working with the elements are also woven throughout the book. The book concludes with the union of the elements that is just more than becoming Spirit, but the completion of their Great Work.
