Nature the Healer

Nature the Healer

We live in a strange world.  

Strange in that humans - us - who are born into flesh avatars of the world live and operate in such a way that we aim to be completely divorced from it.

Think about it.

When was the last time you really engaged nature and immersed yourself into all of its wonder, mystery, beauty and natural rejuvenating power?

When was the last time you walked barefoot outside on the beach or in a field?

When was the last time you swam in the ocean without a wetsuit or a barrier keeping your physical form from nature itself?

We humans can be very easily distracted - much like magpies - chasing the next shiny new object or sold some new idea or lifestyle and very easily we add thing upon thing creating more and more barriers between ourselves and nature.  And in our view - this is why the world is sick.  This is why we are depressed.  This is why our collective joy is possibly at an all time low.

So what can we do about it? 

Like any discipline - practice makes the master, the only difference here is the practice can start small and over time will gather momentum and before you know it, others will be noticing the positive change in your aura and most importantly - you will see and enjoy the change in yourself.  This is the journey we all need to walk - to get back closer to nature the healer.  Here are just a few ideas to get you started: 

  • Go for a walk after your evening meal:

Nothing strenuous - and something the whole family can do together.  Walking through a nearby park, watching the wind move through the trees, seeing the birds and other forms of wildlife being in nature will awaken something so deep and meaningful within you and the more often you do it, the more connected you will feel.  Not to mention, the walking will aid in digestion before bedtime. 

  • Walk barefoot outside:

It may sound silly but we know it to be true. Earthing - Everything is vibration and wearing soles on our feet restrict those vibrations that would ordinarily move through us.  This maintaining contact with the earth and thus nature keeps us grounded - literally.   

  • Saltwater swim:

Cultures the world over who live along coasts revere the benefits and power of the ocean.  The saline and cool waters not only invigorate, they aid in changing the polarity that your aura may be carrying.  How this shows up may be in the way a cold swim may 'take you out of your own head' and give you much needed perspective in the world.  Something we believe we need right now.

  • Water:

Hydration is crucial to our life force.  There are many who stipulate a set amount to consume per day.  We argue that listening to your body is best.  Why?  Because too much water dilutes the key nutrients needed for the body to function optimally.  So listen to your body.

The other magical thing about nature is that accessing it is mostly free.  Sometimes it is just about taking a moment to pause, take a deep breath and look around - like really look around and appreciate the magic and wonder of nature to feel connected to and be healed by it.
