The Elements Series – Aether
Welcome to Isheeria’s Healing Circles,
Thank you for being a part of the Elements Journey on #isheeria by Ridhi Kapoor, an Access Bar Healer and a very talented lady
As we come to the end of the element series, I will be discussing the most mystical and magical element of them all – Aether or Spirit.
The term Aether was adopted from ancient Greek philosophy and utilized by Madam Blavatsky to correspond Akasha, the fifth element of Hindu metaphysics.
In Vedantic Hinduism, Akasha means the basis and essence of all material things, the first material element created from the astral world.
For the lightworkers, this element has its basis in the mystic connection between the body, soul and the universe. It is the celestial energy that is everywhere, within us and surrounding all of us.
In numerology, the element of aether is in alignment with the divine number 1.
The number 1 is perfect for aether. No matter how you see the divine, this is the inception point of creation. As a primal force spirit is the mover-shaker of the universe. Without aether, nothing would exist.
It is the elusive element which does not have any physical presence and unlike the air element cannot be felt as well. However, the effect it has on our spiritual selves is immense.
It is, therefore, the element that symbolizes things like divine intervention, the eternal nature, and energy in motion. It is the element that encompasses all the other elements and even within the wheel of elements where all the other four elements have a fixed space, the ether element is the surprise package.
It is also the most controversial of the elements as due to its non-physical form it has been very difficult for people to acknowledge or believe in its presence.
The element Aether is best represented by the colors black and white. However, they are not to be viewed separately but together.
It is also believed to move in spirals moving beyond the earth and out into the universe. This is in opposition to the other elements that move in lines.
This element also represents the mystical beings of light such as fairies, angels and deities that live on another plane than the human kind. It is also a conduit for these mystical beings to communicate with the beings with bodies. To put it in another way, there are times when we are able to reach beyond and touch something greater than ourselves, that is what ‘Aether/spirit’ is.
‘There is no space without aether, and no aether which does not occupy space’
– Arthur Eddington
