Elemental Magic as Protection Magic: The Use of Sonics

Elemental magic is using the 4 elements to intentionally create a change or effect. Sonics is a type of elemental magic that uses sound and can be used as protection magic. You can actually stop an attacker in his tracks just by using your voice with this type of protection magic. You can also use this type of elemental magic as protection magic to protect your sacred space, your relationships, communications and in many other instances. The use of Sonics is covered much more in depth in our Self Defense homestudy course, but here we will give you some tips to get you started exploring this fascinating field of magic. 

The first thing to familiarize yourself with when beginning to use Sonics is the type of sounds associated with each of the 4 elements and the affect those sounds can have. The elemental magic sounds can then be paired with one of the 8 voices of command to produce varying effects. The sounds and effects associated with each of the four elements include:

Air element sounds are very soft, light, breathy sounds. They are fairly high-pitched and do not carry well over distance. These sounds produce very little or no vibratory effects and require careful attention to be noticed. Air sounds can be used to space someone out or confuse them. An example of how to use Air sounds is to quiet a room of screaming children (Fire) with whispering. Air sounds affect the skin and ears first, then the mind and on a spiritual level affects the mind and its thought processes.

Fire element sounds are shrill, cutting or clear/bright sounds that are fairly high-pitched. They carry well over distance and cut through other sounds. Fire sounds affect the neural system and are attention grabbing. On a spiritual level, they affect will, power, life force and temper. This type of sound would be useful when facing an attacker. 

Water element sounds are soft, caressing, rolling, flowing or stroking sounds that are a mid-range pitch. They carry moderately well over distance and are easily heard. The caressing effect may cause them to go unnoticed. They do not generally stimulate the neural system and affect soft tissues such as entrails and glands with a vibratory effect that is noticeable. Spiritually Water sounds affect emotions and feelings. Water sounds could be used in a case such as wanting to communicate with an unreceptive person on an emotional level. 

Earth element sounds are heavy drumming, thudding or vibrating sounds that are low-pitched. They often are too low to hear and do not carry well over distance. These type of sounds are hard to physically hear with the ears and difficult to find the direction or source. They affect the bones, skeletal structure and solid body parts through a noticeable vibration. Spiritually they affect one's sense of certainty, stability and certainty of beingness. Earth sounds would be a good choice to use with someone who is being dramatic or hyper by giving them some solidity or an anchor. 

Sonics is a very useful study that requires no tools. You can start practicing elemental magic and protection magic and seeing what effect using the various elemental sounds produces. As with any magical technique, think it through and practice to get proficient at the skill so you'll be ready to employ it when you need it. Also remember to follow the Rules of the Road to stay on the right side of the Universe and have fun seeing all the magical things you can do with just your voice.

Sticky Relationship Issues? Create Sacred Space to Smooth Them Over


Making the time to create sacred space for ourselves can indeed help smooth over sticky relationship issues. We all have times when our busy lives stress us out and we not only don't make quality time for friends and family, but we also often take out our frustrations and stress on those closest to us. This is a good time to turn to magic. By using a few magic words and magical techniques to create sacred space, we can strengthen our relationships. Using daily rituals such as the ones in our Daily Rituals for Attracting What You Want in Life ebook helps not only with our earthly relationships, but also those with higher powers and beings. 

What is Sacred Space?
The word "sacred" originated from the very sacren which means "to consecrate". Consecrate often is associated with religious meanings, but aside from that it also means "To dedicate solemnly to a service or goal." Using this definition, you can get an immediate start on smoothing out relationship issues by re-dedicating yourself to those relationships. Making an aim or a goal for yourself is the first step. This aim could be something that you will do to relieve your own stress, making you more pleasant to be around and more available to others or it could be a goal for something you will consistently physically do for others in your life. If you are not sure about what aim or goal to pick, using magical tools such as Medicine Cards, Runes, Sacred Path cards or Angel Cards can help. You may want to pick one long term goal to work towards or pick a different goal for each day. 

How To Create Sacred Space
Creating sacred space is a very simple way to get back peace, serenity and clarity. There are hundreds of ways to create sacred space, depending on which tradition you study or practice. One of the keys though is consistency. Doing a simple daily ritual consistently will bring you much more success in creating sacred space than doing a list of things that you will probably put aside when stressed and short of time. You can pick a ritual as simple as sitting in total silence just breathing for 3 minutes each morning. As long as you do it consistently each and every day, you will build force and feel the results throughout the day. Here are a few other ways you can start creating sacred space in your life. 

1. Create a Sacred Space to Create Sacred Space – You need to have a physical space that is free of clutter that you can go to. Pick an area in your home that can be just for you and clean it up physically and energetically. You can clear out negative energies by doing a 4 element cleansing or smudging. You may want to set up an altar in this space for sacred objects such as a feather or interesting rock you found on a walk, candles, or a talisman or symbol that resonates with you. Keep your sacred space area clear of dust and make it a special place just for you. 

2. From Start to Finish – Pick a simple daily ritual that you can perform at the very beginning of your day to set the tone for the day with peace, calmness, awareness and to invite magic into your life. Do the same ritual last thing of the day to help you end your day in the same way by inviting magic into your dream world and helping you get good quality sleep. 

3. Sacred Movement – Some people just can't sit still, even for 3 minutes. Trying to do a sitting or meditation just seems to stress them out more. For those people, walking can be a good way to create the sacred. Taking a walk and praying or talking with higher powers can create sacred space all around you. Moving your body also moves your mind. By the law of "as above, so below," when you move body, spirit and mind will also move. Taking a walk can move your mind out of whatever space it is in and reconnect you with your aim. There are also moving mediations done in conjunction with a litany that can help create sacred space with movement and magic words. 

4. Sun Candle – Lighting and charging a Sun Candle is a great way to create sacred space in your special area or anywhere. I know people that keep one on the desk at work to keep their work area calm and energetically clean and to help them focus or concentrate. All you need is a bright yellow candle that doesn't have any orange overtones and preferably is unscented and wooden or paper matches. Then charge or program the candle in this way:
  • Stand or sit in the South facing North with the Sun Candle in front of you
  • Light the candle using wooden or paper matches (do NOT use a lighter)
  • Wait until the candle flame is steady and tall
  • Hold your hands up to and around the flame, focusing your attention on the candle and flame.
  • Say the charge verse below in a voice of command (a strong, powerful voice):
Child of Wonder,
Child of Flame,
Nourish My Spirit,
And Protect My Aim!
Leave the candle burning for at least 30 minutes (be sure the candle is on a protected surface such as a plate and is not a fire hazard). At the end of 30 minutes or when you feel ready, blow out the flame (don't snuff it).

5. Use Physical Sensation to Stay in Present Time - Physical sensations help us stay in present time which increases personal power and allows us to stay connected with our aims. Find a way to create an unfamiliar physical sensation for yourself. This might be putting a rubberband around your wrist, wearing a ring on a different finger than usual, carrying a small rock in your pocket or anything you can think of that you will physically be conscious of throughout the day. 

Get your relationships back on track magically by using some of these tips for creating sacred space. Not only will your relationships run smoother, but you'll find yourself able to enjoy life more, having time to stop and smell the roses and being able to manifest easier those things you want to attract to your life. It just one way real magic can add to your quality of life.
