akasha or akash, aakaashá, ākāśa, (Sanskrit: आकाश) — meaning space or sky and is the basis and essence of all things in the material world; The source of all creation, the first stage of crystallisation of spirit. The fifth element or panchamahābhūtas (five great elements), the others being prthivi (earth), apa (water), agni (fire) and vayu (air).
Akasha is the space in which to remember your true essence, what you were before your shine was dimmed by the outer world.
