We do not have simply one Element. That seems to be a misconception that started with the movie The Craft. We are made up of all of the Elements and one should try to build a relationship with all of them in balance in order to fully work with any of them. Sure it's true that at least at first you will feel more comfortable with one or two of the Elements. That just means that you need to spend more time working on the ones with which you are not comfortable.
In the Western school of magic there are the four Elements of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. However many, including Traditional Wiccans, add to that the Element of Spirit.
In Eastern magic there are five Elements, water, fire, wood, metal, and earth.
