Vayu Tattva

Elemental Air or Vayu Tattva
The Spirit of Waju is Wisdom. From Illumination comes Pure Ideas. The effect in the mental realm is enlightened intellect: Discernment, Understanding, Truth, Knowledge, perception, etc.
In combination with the Spiritual Fire of Light, one gets the self-spiritualization; the transforming of Ideas into form, or transformation; and the influence of the mental body with Ideas or Divine Virtues.
Again with this Highest of Intellectual Cognition in the Spiritual Waju ~the combination of Air and Fire~ as it were, impregnates the Ideal (formatives) into the receiving medium~ which is the Creative Power (of Highest Purity and Divine Virtues).
In this one gets clear spiritual sight and receives symbolic visions. By the virtue of Waju in the mental faculty one is able to recollect all memories of previous incarnations, complete with one’s previous abilities, languages, etc. If this were experienced in a very short time span, the result would be profound remorse.
As an agent of moderation in the emotional body: one succeeds in Astral Equilibrium, or the blessing of untouchable character ennoblement: one achieves Astral Invisibility.
Astral Waju also results in the ability to relate ideas into words; all talents: eloquence, poetry, music: good cheer, proper atmosphere for entertainment; also the gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience, understanding symbolic language; as well as one method of levitation. Good rapport, of course with Air Beings. The unique method of ‘Air Medium Telegraphy’ is particular to Astral Waju (as Telepathy is to Mental).
The ability to work miracles/wonders in the material world relates here, as well; in the mastery of Kotodama, Tantric Mantra and Qaballah, or all systems of the spoken word, such as Qaballistic Alchemy; allowing one to stimulate and influence matter with virtues/powers and impregnate any form: changing matter via The Word.
Body-wise, it is specific to treatments of chest ailments, cures fatigue, makes body tenacious and strong, gives endurance; brings cheerfulness; and contributes to personal health, appeal, beauty, youth, vigor, vitality, and harmony.
