FIRE WALK WITH ME

As the cool air of Autumn swirls around us on Earth, we are reminded of the Sun and the light giving gifts this element offers us.┬áIn Andean cosmology Father Sun, known in Quecha as Tayta Inti, is a masculine spirit carrying the qualities of the element Fire. According to the Q’ero people of the Sacred Valley in Peru, Tayta Inti gave rainbows to the beings of Earth to remind them of his creation of the world and how the rainbow is many colors yet forms a single bridge from the Earth to the Sky. When I first heard this story I began to wonder, “How can I as a human being connect to the Sky and the light energy it carries – of the Sun, the Moon, the Stars?”
