Water: Trusting the Flow
Elemental Magic

This visualization is good for attaining an optimal mind frame for magic.

Start with some meditative breathing. With eyes closed, bring to the “screen” of your mind an image of a pond. The surface of the pond is completely still, reflecting the blue sky above it and the tops of several tall trees around its perimeter. You are standing at its southern shore, feeling the warmth of the Sun on your shoulders. Across the pond, to the North is a particularly large, knotty oak tree. To the East are three robins chattering to each other on the branches of a leafy shrub, and to the West, a stand of cattails and other marsh grasses obscure the pond’s shoreline.

Hold this vision in your mind until it’s quite solid. Then, visualize a small, round pebble in the palm of your dominant hand. Feel the smooth, cool surface of the pebble between your fingers, and then gently toss it into the center of the pond. Watch and hear the tiny splash it makes before disappearing under the surface. Watch the ripples it creates radiating out from the center in perfect circles. Choose a single small wave to focus on, following it until it travels all the way to the pond’s northern shore. Note how the ripples continue to move outward from the center, long after the pebble has settled on the bottom of the pond. This is a good metaphor for magic—the energy of the action continues to change the physical world around it long after the action itself has been performed.
