I’ve just gone outside to enjoy some summer warmth and some fresh air to take a break from my latest project. As I sat on the back doorstep and played with Willow who was rolling around on the patio and generally begging me to tickle her tummy, I noticed how still it was despite the bees and butterflies gathering their nectar from the flowering herbs in my garden. Have you ever just sat and soaked up nature like that? It’s a very peaceful and enriching feeling, just to sit there and do nothing but be at peace.
We rush about so much in our modern world that we seldom take the time to really nurture our soul and heart with nature. Nature is not only our Provider, but also a source of great solace and source of attunement to our inner nature. When I was doing my shamanic training 20 odd years ago I really made a clear connection to my inner self through communing with nature. One of the reasons why I love where I live is because of the amount of trees around me. They always feel like great guardians to me and I love the stillness that surrounds you when you are in a grove in the trees.
One of the things that causes me such sadness is the relentless message we are getting from so many would be mentors that to fulfil our ‘mission’ in life is to become rich and famous. If we don’t we have wasted our life, or so they infer. Personally I don’t believe that is the case. We know from quantum physics that one change in your life whether big or small has the potential to ripple across time and space and create change, even on the other side of the world. We never really know how our personal development and coming into accord with our soul and spirit affects others.
I was listening to Gregg Braden’s latest video previews of his new course from Hay House this week and he gives his exercise for us to listen to the wisest part of us, that of your heart to find answers to our dilemmas. I’ve been using it for sometime now and I believe that what we access in our heart is the wisdom of our soul. To me that is the most beautiful message we will ever hear. And while I sometimes get a little irritated by new age fluffy messages (and I’ve been given a few to give to my clients from the Akashic Records) I know that I need to ignore my left brain in these matters which wants everything to be logically practical, and go with the best actions I can take from those type of messages and live with their truth.
We are more than physical bodies. If we are to believe quantum physics we are really just whirling masses of light particles (I’m paraphrasing here) which take form according to our consciousness. So if we decide to live from the highest vibration we are capable of, and take charge of out thoughts and feelings we become powerful creators of our own lives. Because as you know your thoughts create your reality because they are capable of creating form in due course. Our emotions are the powerful engine that drives the thoughts and give us the impetus to move forward with that creation.
I also wanted to talk about how we find that creation process so frustrating when we want, want, want something and it seems to push it so very far away from us, but I think I’ll save that for another newsletter.
In the meantime, if you haven’t seen Gregg’s presentation you can find a copy of his new book here. And the videos here.
