What the Four Winds represents
The Four Winds symbolise the four elements: Wind(Air), Earth, Water and Fire. We would not have come into being if it were not for the balance between these elements.
Without the element Air we could not survive as it provides us with the breath of life.
The element Water cleanses and nourishes the body. In life we must learn to be like the rivers and streams by flowing effortlessly with the tides of life and not being afraid to dive deep into the depths of ourselves.
The Earth element provides us with all the nutrients we need to grow and thrive. As we walk this earthly journey Mother Earth supports us as we become present by grounding ourselves deep into her roots.
Without the element of Fire in the form of the Sun, life would not exist. Fire teaches us to keep our own inner flame and passion for our soul’s journey burning brightly.
The Hebrew word for wind is ‘Spirit’ and on the “Four Winds” comes our spiritual truth. The Four Winds are symbolic of the mystical point where the divine touches the natural world, representing all that we cannot see but yet cannot be without: our soul, spirit, mind and heart.
All the answers we are seek come on the Four Winds, all we have to do is listen.
