Expanding on Aum's lovely contribution:
Connecting with the elements one by one is not the way to do it, for Nature can not be sustained without each of them. To have a relationship with one, you must have a relationship with all. You cannot separate the earth and the water, because without water the trees and animals could not live. Without fire, the forests would not rejuvenate. Without air, the plants and animals could not breathe.
Spend some time in Nature, observe the complex ecosystem that is our home. The elemental spirits of our home will only naturally grow close to you if you stay long enough for the trees, the animals, the plants, the winds, the waters to begin flowing with you and within you.
