Honoring the Elements: Altar Guide 🕯✨
Setting up an altar dedicated to the elements is simple and effective! And what better way to show thanks for their presence in our lives than through your own personal shrine? The elements are a part of our everyday living, and assist heavily in our paths. Here are some simple additions you can incorporate into your own altar:
Earth: flowers, bones, sticks, herbs, leaves, crystals/stones of your choice 🌍
Air: incense sticks or cones, feathers, a wand, sage or palo santo 🌬
Fire: red, orange, or yellow candles (or any color!), a salt lamp or candle holder 🔥
Water: a chalice, bottle, or bowl of fresh water (or water collected from a lake/river/pond/ocean), shells, sea salt, something representative of the moon (to honor the tides) 💧
Spirit: a pentagram (drawn, molded, sewn, etc, or perhaps you have one that you’ve purchased), any object that is close to your heart and representative of you 🔮(and don’t forget about figurines, small framed photos, or written notes of your choosing. personal touch is everything)!
