This year my theme is A Goddess' Glossary and we are looking at terms utilized by Goddesses, Priestesses, Shamans and Witches. These are terms that might occur in my new fantasy series, Paisley Cove.
E is for Elementals and Energy
Anyone who has every watched a fantasy series, read a fantasy book, or studied witchcraft or pagan beliefs knows the elementals are Fire, Air, Earth, Water, and Spirit.
Some Shamanic practices honor the above (spirit) and the below. Below is not considered hell, it's another dimension.
All of the practices, at least anything that falls within shamanic and/or pagan practices focus on energy. Energy, of course, is all around us, it emanates from anything that is living, all organic matter. Some practices believe that one can alter how energy reacts in situations, what some might call witchcraft or spellwork.
Our character Phoebe will learn that there is no such thing as wiggling a nose to power the vacuum cleaner and a nod of the head can't transport you to another place or time. But, with practice and intention, one might be able to alter the paths of some energies.
Join me tomorrow as we explore F is for Familiar and Free Will.~*~
Loving life in Cuenca!
