Elemental Correspondences

I have been asked from time to time to demonstrate how the Metaphysical Law of Analogy may be applied in various situations.  Below are two examples - the subdivision of correspondences applied to the basic Elements and applied to sounds.  These are logical, although others may find correspondences more relative to their own personalities and experiences.  One can but experiment in these matters and if it works for you .......... fine!
