I still haven’t managed to go sit in the woods. We are still battling illness in my house, so I have either been nursing my children, or myself!
Even though I haven’t sat outside to meditate yet, I make a point of grounding – connecting with the Earth – every day.
One morning, during my grounding I was feeling and expressing gratitude to the Earth for supporting me, and for being my battery. I recharge every morning by grounding, and at night grounding helps me relax. As I was feeling this deep gratitude, a message came to me:
You want to heal the Earth? GROUND!
Connect with the Earth. Put your bare feet and hands in the grass or the dirt or the sand, hug a tree, sit on the ground. Reach out and connect in some way EVERY DAY.
Just as a person cannot thrive without physical contact, neither can the Earth.
I received images of children in orphanages who are given minimal care who turn their faces to the wall and fade away; elderly in “care” homes who have no visitors slowly fading into the past.
The farther we move into our technological world of virtual realities, the more disconnected we become from the Earth and from the natural world. I know this, I see this, I feel this, and even I am not willing to give up my computer or my smartphone! 😀
I’m thinking of offering a free teleclass on grounding, with a guided meditation to help you learn to ground. What do you think? Is that something you would be interested in? I look forward to hearing from you!
