A friend of mine has recently written a book about Heathenry and the sea and it got me thinking.
We often teach our children about the spirituality of forests, trees, flowers, animals and all sorts but the majority of resources I see cover the sea, lakes, rivers etc much less.
Is this a natural caution? As parents do we see bodies of water as more dangerous to our children than land-based nature (which, arguably, it is) or is it more that those creating the resources don’t feel as deep a connection with the water element as they do the others?
For me, I’ve never particularly felt pulled towards one element more than the others. It’s always been pretty equal and that’s reflected in my work, my children’s book, my practice… But elemental veneration resources rarely focus on the sea alone… It’s just an interesting pattern that I’ve noticed…
If you know of any books, blogs, talks or other resources that are linked to the elements as a whole or specific ones individually, pop is a link below! If you create those resources, why not use the contact form and let us know so we can give your work a review on our site?
