The Five Elements of Creativity by Lisa Noble published in We’Moon’s 2014 Date Book


By the power of AIR, the morning breeze whispers ideas to me and I am inspired. In soft shades of pastel I communicate my thoughts to the world in words, stories, poetry and calligraphy. That which is of the mind is unlimited potential.

By the power of FIRE, the sun at mid-day lights the way and I am a force of nature; I drum, I dance, I ignite my ideas in brilliant reds and golds. Filled with motivation I energize my ideas. That which i action is brought into the light.

By the power of WATER, twilight rain is my song filled from the depth of my being with emotion; this I pour into my creations, now rich with meaning. That which is felt sings.

By the power of EARTH, I journey to the midnight forest. Wrapped in a verdant cloak of my fore-crones, I manifest and give birth to my meaningful, energized inspirations. That which can be imagined comes into being.

By the power of SPIRIT that originated at the center and transcends all boundaries  we are connected to the creative web of the universe. Art transforms the creator, the viewer, the performer and the listener. Art transforms us all. That which is human is a luminous art form.

This is an excerpt from my Half Way to Babylon project: a series of books the explore the ancient knowledge of elemental wisdom to find our own artist with in.

  1. Spirit brought me to this page, when normally I do not browse. I was seeking my first copy of the We’Moon datebook ( I usually go for the Witches datebook) for this year and was led to this beautiful page. Naturally, I was changed immediately upon adoring the artwork (all things change us, not all things resonate so deep) and teared up in pleasure by your words. A paramount reminder that I do have Sisters out there. Namaste and bright Blessings
