3 Ways to Get in-Touch with Nature 🌿
I can still remember the day when I realized that I am nature. And not simply a spectator of the natural world.
*insert blown mind*
For some reason or another, I grew up with the thought of humans as separate from the flora, fauna and creatures around me. It was a kind of “us and them” mentally. But then one day, almost out of the blue, it occurred to me that we’re not separate or different from nature in any meaningful way.
We’re of the same stuff as the oak trees, honey bees and salty sea breeze.
We are not in nature, we are nature.
(mixed with a little stardust and a sprinkle of *beyond*, of course!)
"Consciousness sleeps in minerals,
dreams in plants,
wakes up in animals,
becomes self aware in humans”
The untampered Life-force of the natural world is one of the clearest reflections of the Divine breathing through all of us. And by tuning in to the nature around us, we tune in to our true nature.
Harmony ensues. And this is a feeling of refreshment, peace, and upliftment like no other!
And so with that in mind, I wanted to share three of my favourite ways to get in “touch” with Nature!
Feel the soul of the Earth through your sole. Allow any negativity to be released from your body and mind, letting it flow into the Earth to be transmuted to love.
2. Hug a Tree
As you do, see if you can feel the roots reaching down into the earth and the branches lift to the sky. See if you can feel the tree hugging you back 🤗
3. Lay on the Bare Earth
Allow yourself to feel grounded by the solidness of the Earth below you. Take a few moments to breathe deeply, surrender, and simply “be”.
We are alive in a living life. And while I know this Earth is a temporary home for our star-soaring Souls, it is still the birthplace and final resting place of the body. And so while we’re here, we are of the Earth. And by getting in touch with Nature every day, we come in to greater harmony with our true nature and naturally begin to tune into the inner-peace and freedom that is our birthright.
May you find harmony in your being and return to your true nature ☺️
