Sensing Nature…

Have you ever had a moment in nature when you felt totally content? A flicker in time where you felt at peace with where you’re at but also felt clarity as to where you are going? You find an answer you have been seeking or can clearly see the future direction you must take. Where you are just accepting of this time and space in this world? You are content. Or perhaps exhilarated and exuberant and bubbling with joy. For in this moment things just make sense. A homecoming of sorts to where you find yourself and where the true you feels happy and safe to be just you…

This is Mother Nature connecting with your Soul. We have all the answers we need within and by connecting with Mother Nature, or Gaia, or Source she has a calming effect on our mind, body and soul. She is nurturing and kind and we are all connected within and throughout her. If you take the time to listen to yourself, her messages, her whispers will all come through.  She has wisdom beyond our wildest dreams. And all we need to do is listen…

Listen…

Listen to the sounds of nature all around you… the little birds, the crickets chirping, a dog barking or a possum on the roof… Sometimes it’s just stillness… There is no sound… Hear the sounds of the wind as it ruffles through the trees or roars overhead… Recognise the symphony of the ocean or it’s gentle little wash as the tides ebb and flow… There is music all around us!

Feeling…

Feel the earth beneath your feet as you walk barefoot on the sand or run through the soft grass… Touch the velvety soft petals of a rose or cradle a prickly seed pod in your hands… Let the rain fall down upon your face or the wind caress you as it passes by… Splash in a puddle or surf like a dolphin on a wave… Embrace the warm sun on your back or from a crackling fire… Let your body feel alive!

See…

See the beauty of nature wherever you may wander… The clouds drifting by on your morning commute… or the dazzling blue sky of summer…  the sun peaking through your window as you enjoy your morning cuppa… A tiny weed growing up through a crack in the footpath… Walk through a garden or park alive with flowers or pick some for your own table… Witness the power of a raging river or climb to the top of a mountain for a breathtaking view… Lie under the stars in wonder and awe… Truly see the splendour of Nature!

Taste…

Let the food you eat tantalise your taste buds… Seek out the most nutritious produce for yourself and family… Find a Farmer’s Market and enjoy the community spirit while you source your food… Savour new delights and delicacies… Allow yourself to be adventurous and try new things… Slow down, chew your food properly and be mindful when you eat or drink… Celebrate the taste of Nature!

Visualise…

If you ever find yourself all alone or unable to be in nature take solace from knowing that you have your own inner resource with you wherever you go…

Close your eyes and take a deep breath… in… and out… in… and out…

Imagine a place in your mind, it may be real or imaginary, where you feel truly at peace… a place you like to visit where you can be just you… somewhere you feel secure and nurtured, where abundant love surrounds you… listen to the sounds of your sacred space, feel the sensations in your body and see the magnificence in your mind’s eye…

Stay here as long as you like… listen to your heart and let it reveal to you it’s secrets…

For this is your special place and accessible at any time you need to come home…
