Heal the Healer- The Four Elements
Nursology follows the guidance and teachings of the International Council of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers. As such, we believe in a reverence for all Creation and use the Elements in our nursing practice. This sounds groovy but what does this really mean? It means that we have come to know and work with the four Elements- Air, Earth, Fire, and Water. These four have always been part of the spirit and human experience. They are living Beings that were given to us at the dawn of Creation and are with us every day.
We encourage every nurse and healer to explore these four Elements and make them part of your daily mindfulness. Sing to the water and stand in the rain. Climb a hill, listen, and let the wind blow through you. Light a candle and watch the flame as you meditate or pray. Stand barefoot in the Sunshine and take time to smell the roses. The gifts and beauty of the Elements are endless! They heal the heart, mind, body, and soul and when we reciprocate with them daily, that my dear hearts, is how the healer is healed. So take that bath, blow those bubbles, sit by that fire, and hug that tree!
