According to the ancient craft of Alchemy, which seeks to transform and perfect the human spirit, everything in existence comprises 4 archetypal elements. These are Fire, Earth, Water and Air. The myriad ways the 4 elements combine determines the nature of all things, both physical and non-physical, including even human nature. Understanding these 4 elements is the key to fathoming our own minds. Knowing how to transmute one element into another is the foundation for personal development. It is the balance of the 4 elements in each of us, which perfects and elevates us and reveals our highest nature.
