A Place for Spiritual Rejuvenation
We live on a
magnificent planet where nature abounds, but do we but do we utilize
Mother Earth spiritually?
How many of us take it for granted that
we live on a magnificent planet with inspiring mountains, lush
valleys, healing beaches, enlivening waterfalls, calming lakes,
contemplative forests, grounding parks, energizing green spaces, and
more? We live here, but do we utilize these wonderful spots of
Have you ever noticed the perfect rhythm,
the balance of waves lapping the beach? Alternatively have you been
enthralled by the harmonious balance of a quiet forest that has an
energizing stream or river flowing through it? These are nature’s
expressions of the perfect union of the ‘male’ action (waves or
river) and the ‘female’ receiving (beach or forest) energies.
balance exists when the presence of the fiery sun’s rays is tempered
by a light breeze. The breeze is able to offset the heat of the sun
with a gentle force – something for us to emulate.
energy provides a platform for us to connect with our ‘I am’
presence that lies within. It is also provides a model for the
perfection that all of us can attain, when we balance the male and
female aspects of our selves.
All of this can be enhanced by the four
elements of nature that come together in a multitude of inspiring
ways, forming unique spaces that hold something special for you.
The elements of our universe are:
- earth (sand, dirt, rock)
- fire (sun)
- water (lake, river, waves)
- air (breeze, wind)
How often do you meditate in
nature? When you do, you open yourself to a strong,
magnificent, and meaningful connection. The guidance and knowing
received is always clear. Bring a notebook with you to record any
thoughts, feelings, or images that come to you.
often have tried manifestation work while outside on the earth?
This sacred space provides universal support during co-creating
work. Some Native American traditions would draw in the dirt and the
sand what they wanted to manifest. They knew that their creations
would be temporary; lasting only until the rain, surf, or winds
destroyed it. However, they never doubted the absolute effectiveness
of this powerful work. Along with meditation and intent, the action
of creating physical representations of their intentions in the
earth helped set them into motion and propel their manifestations.
How often have you watched the sunset and asked for its special
message for you? Start by sending a beam of light from your
heart to the energy of God’s glorious creation in the sky. Ask for
its message for you. Spend time with its energy and be open to
receiving whatever presents itself. The sun energy is powerful and
very supportive of the earth and who exist here.
I have received
amazing messages from sunsets, ranging from a strong knowing to an
outpouring of writing in my notebook.
often have you used a spot of nature to heal yourself or to do
healing work for others? The support of the universe stands
tall in nature for all healing. Start by saluting the four corners
and then call in the four elements. This creates a sacred space in
which something special can occur. Clear yourself, your thoughts,
and your emotions of all that no longer serves you. Ask Mother Earth
to take what has been cleared, to absorb all the negativity from
you. Visualize and feel this happening. If you are near water, ask
the water to wash over you – cleansing, healing and nourishing you.
Visualize and feel this happening. Ask the knowing breeze and the
creative heat of the sun to offer new ways of being to replace the
old. Allow the new to enter, absorb it, and make it part of
Why not experience your own
rejuvenation at your favorite spot of nature? Pick a quiet
time of day that allows nature’s voice to be easily heard within its
environment. Enjoy the time. Relax and let the experience flow as it
needs to. You will not only feel renewed, but also deeply connected
to the earth, God, the Universe, and all that is.
