FIRE - The Elemental Series

Fire Element


The illuminator

The protector

The destroyer, leaving behind the foundations for creation in its ashes

The Sun

It is ancient and ancestral

It is raw energy in it's purest form

Our third element in this series is Fire. The Fire element is embodies creation, destruction, protection, and purification. Fire has long been celebrated across cultures for its light, warmth, and protection. It has shaped our lives and evolution, allowing humans to cook and consume foods that were once harmful and giving us the opportunity to see during the night. Fire is essential for warmth during cold winter nights and for the success of crop growth throughout the spring and summer.
