Mama Earth and I have been loving on each other during this time of isolation. I have been going outside, walking barefoot on her soil, sitting in her grass and observing her magic. She’s been holding me and I’ve been singing to her. Sitting and connecting with her has become one of my favorite daily practices.
Senses turned on, FULLY.
When this practice was recommended to me, my body instantly contracted, my mind resisted. Fear began rising from deep within, even though I have had a consistent meditation practice for years now. Something about sitting with my eyes open and doing NOTHING but being, stressed me out to no end, but I did it anyway. I started with 5 minutes, and every day, since I began I have added on another 5 minutes. I am now at 20 minutes of purely sitting and being and let me tell you, those 20 minutes are the most peaceful, joyful moments of my day. My being craves this practice.
OUR BEINGS CRAVE THIS PRACTICE!
One thing I am realizing is how easily entertained I am, LOL. Mother Earth is the best TV show I have watched in ages! There’s so much right there, just waiting to be noticed, explored and felt.
The peace I have found within this practice allows for my true nature, for LovE and joy to instantly rise and my connection to the mother is tender and powerful.
Connecting to nature and Mama Earth is one of the most direct routes I have found to true heart expansion.
So, on this Earth Day, I invite you to begin your own sitting practice in nature. Start with 5 min and see what happens.
Sit and be.
This means no meditating, no breathwork, nothing!
Allow your senses to open, without trying to open them. Allow your mind to wander.
BE AND RECEIVE.
Please share with me what your experience is like, if you dare to venture on this journey. Happy Earth Day!
We LovE you Mama Earth. I hope you feel that today, and every day.
