On this Earth Day, Friday April 22 I invite you to consider the importance of connecting with Mother Earth each and every day.
I wrote earlier this year about Connecting with the Divine Mother. During my experience in November in the water caves of Misa Hol Mexico, I was reminded by Ix Cheel Earth Mother of Life, and Ix Mu Kane, the grandmother Heart of the Earth that daily gratitude to our holy Mother Earth is a key aspect of divine living,
Not only does She provide us with the fruits and necessities of life, She inspires us with the wonder and joy in the beauty of creation that she sustains,
You can connect with her as a living sentient being at any and every moment of the day. Just be aware of her body mind and spirit and be one with her
1. When you first wake up look out your window, Really look at nature and feel your oneness with it.
I am grateful to have a tree that I greet and commune with, thankful that it provides me with 02 as I share my C02. Even on a still day, its branches wave hello.
I hear the sound of running water in the fountain in the courtyard, and connect with the earths water, sending it love and remembering Dr Masaru Emoto who was a Japanese author, researcher and entrepreneur, who demonstrated that human consciousness has an effect on the molecular structure of water.
I smell the fresh air coming in my window and feel it kissing my body good morning.
I hear the birds singing, the geese calling as they make their way to a new grazing place.
I feel the love all the earth sends back and know we are One Energy
2.As you go about your day tune into the earth and be aware of the bounty and abundance she offers. When you focus on abundance more comes your way.
As you eat your breakfast think of the miraculous way the earth provides food.
As you brush your teeth or take a shower tune into the water and be aware of its preciousness. Turn it off when you soap up or brush to honour your awareness and help conserve it. When you drink water send messages of love, honour, peace , joy or whatever you wish to bring more into your life.
As you start your car or hop on a bus feel awe that Mother Earth has the minerals and resources to create fuel.
I love to take in the beauty as I drive from place to place. It is calming and sends my vibrational frequency into bliss to see the flowers trees, the clouds in the sky the mountains and all of creation. I see something new each day and that makes me aware of the abundance all around me.
3. Try and fit in a few minutes to actually be in nature.
Take a walk, Hug a tree, Pick up a leaf or pinecone that has fallen, Talk to the flowers and stones. I sometimes get a message from a stone that it wants to travel. I ask its permission to pick it up and pocket it until I get a message that it has reached its desired destination.
Theres a cool challenge going on right now to "Rewild Your Life". Join people from around the World who are experiencing the benefits of getting outside and reconnecting with Nature! The Goal: Spend at least 30 minutes outside in Nature each day for 30 days (with minimal use of electronics). Learn more >> http://goo.gl/zQUlDn
You can express your gratitude when you are out in nature in many ways, You may wish to do something more formal, perhaps on the equinoxes and solstices and on earth day. You can clean up debris to restore its beauty, plant a tree, or leave an offering .
4. In the evening or before you go to sleep connect once more with our (w)Holy Mother Earth,
Bless her, tell her you love, honour and respect her, and thank her for all the gifts she gives to you and every sentient thing on her. Feel her sending her love in return
5. If you'd like a process for consciously connecting with Mother Earth check out my past blog How to Connect With The World Around You
6.. Feel your Divine Self soar and enjoy Earth Day by watching this magnificent view of our earth.
Let yourself become totally immersed and blissed up by turning it onto full screen. Feel yourself connecting in each scene. If you prefer a word other than God then replace it with Source or Creator Energy.
