When was the last time you connected with nature?
When was the last night you laid down on the grass and watched the clouds go by?
When was the last time you walked through a forest, walked on a beach, visited waterfalls?
When was the last time you went outside at night to look up at the stars?
When was the last time you stepped outside just to breathe in fresh air?
When was the last time you place your hands on a tree and marveled at their magnificence?
When was the last time you stood barefoot in the Earth?
When was the last time you got up early to watch the sun rise?
When was the last time you stopped cooking dinner to go and catch the sunset?
When was the last time you look at the intrinsic beauty of a flower?
When was the last time you collected shells at a beach?
When was the last time you swam in the ocean?
When was the last time you went on a hike?
Connecting with nature grounds you. It brings you back down to Earth. It opens your heart to the miraculous beauty of the natural world around you. You can connect with nature every day. You do not need hours, you needs minutes. Standing outside in the fresh air – breathing it deep into your soul allowing it to clear you mind and spirit. Connecting with nature is a beautiful way to reconnect, recharge and heal. Book yourself a spot in your diary each day to reconnect with nature. Make it something different each day. For example…
MONDAY – Watch the sun rise.
TUESDAY – Go for a walk.
WEDNESDAY – Stargaze before bed.
THURSDAY – Sit in my garden and listen to the nature around me
FRIDAY – Pick some flowers
SATURDAY – Visit a park, beach or river.
SUNDAY – Watch the sun set
Connecting with nature has played an integral role in healing my heart through life’s traumas. I am constantly left in a state of awe by its beauty. When you connect to nature, the earth, the sky, the sun, moon and stars your heart expands and life feels much more important. You are a part of this miraculous universe. You are not separate from the trees or the ocean or the stars – we are all one magnificent being. So go out and connect with your magnificence.
