What is Akasha?
By:
Post # 1
I've seen this name a few times when reading about elements.


Wikipedia says: It is believed by many modern Pagans that the Akasha, Spirit, is the Fifth Element. Scott Cunningham describes the Akasha as the spiritual force that Earth, Air, Fire, and Water descend from. Some also believe that the combination of the four elements make up that which is Akasha, and that Akasha exists in every living creature in existence; without Akasha, there is no spirit, no soul, no magic......The upward point of the pentacle, the pentagram or five pointed star within a circle, represents Akasha. The others represent Fire, Earth, Air and Water. While Earth is considered "north"; Fire is "south"; air is "east"; Water is "west", while Akasha is "center".

Is this true?


Because, to be honest, when I read/hear Akasha I think of Ann Rice, lol.

Akasha is just a belief, I cannot tell you if it is true. In the system of hermeticism and others derived from this, it is true within that the confines of that system.

I would describe akasha as the place from which the energies associated with the elements fire, water, air, and Earth originate from, but also the force which holds them together and makes them up. If every element was stripped to it's core and placed together, in theory, there would be akasha.

I see it as the life force, basic energy, chi whatever you want to call it. It is that force which holds us all together, so in a sense it must exist all is energy at its most basic level, and I would argue that this basic level, this pure singular energetic level is akasha.

I don't class Akasha as an element, it is 'higher' or beyond elements.
