Recently I've actually been starting to practice. Nothing too extreme as I'm trying to feel my way around, but things are going well/successful. However I keep getting a somewhat "different" connection with earth and things from earth. Point being I identify with this element, although I acknowledge all of them and realize they are spiritual as much as physical.
My question is, how can I strengthen my connection with earth --- draw energy, strength, and be able to essentially learn how to properly access it when needed?
