The last energy we work with in air represents enlightenment and understanding, completing the upward evolutionary cycle that begins in fire. This quality carries many names and can be understood as peace, illumination, or even enlightenment.

In nature this energy is found in the blue sky, wide open and expansive, that lifts our spirits. It touches and comprehends the life force moving inside every living thing.

When we reach this point in a cycle in our life, the lesson we needed to learn has been understood and integrated deeply within us.

Within the afro-Brazilian tradition this quality is known as Oxalá, and in the afro-Cuban tradition it is Obatalá.
