Every Day is Earth Day

You and I, along with the animal kingdoms, ocean realm, sky worlds, fairy realms and elementals, are all Bridges of Love Light to heaven. Our Eden, Mother Earth, and all of her inhabitants are very alive and sentient beings and are here to be enjoyed, loved and nurtured 

Now. 

You and I, we, are beloved Bridges of Love and Light from Earth to heaven and back again in a constant movement of sharing our spiritual selves and Earth selves.

Each of us said we would help one of these beings or realms before we were born. I remembered this pre-birth agreement I had, saying I would help the oceans, cetaceans, trees, horses and dogs. You may have remembered your agreement also. If not consciously yet, you may begin having dreams of spirit animals or plants you are especially drawn to. It is fun, simple and satisfying to help our Earth Mother and our Father Sky.

Recognizing our Oneness with Heaven, Mother Earth and Father Sky, opens up infinite possibilities for creating the world we love to live in and share with others.

Trees, the standing people, love to interact with us. My grandson, Cooper, taught me how to hug a tree. He said, “You walk up to a tree and put your flat palm against it.”  A great way to start your conversation with a tree!

I love to stand in the middle of fairy ring trees. Trees that grow close together in a circle, leaving just enough room for you to stand in the middle. I love doing this and just being with the spirit of the trees. I sometimes put my back against the tree and feel its life force enlivening and strengthening me. Refreshing and inspiring.

Creating your own ceremonies and rituals with Mother Earth will bring you many benefits. One is what Glenda Green’s book, Love without End: Jesus Speaks, teaches us—innocent perception. We become as children and see Nature innocently. Instead of looking at a tree as we see a TV screen, we innocently perceive it. We feel its essence and discover its true nature and ours. This wonder and oneness transports us to our own innocence and love. We might wonder, how can I make this tree more comfortable? What does it need? I’ve found that when I take the time to perceive in this way, I feel more peace and well-being within myself.

Two websites I want to highlight again today are Mother Nature Network and Perelandra.

Each one has a wealth of nature research ongoing with infinite variety and ideas on how to understand our Earth Mother and All of her inhabitants, spiritually and physically.

Perelandra is a site that I have visited many times, and I always feel that I have barely scratched the surface. Machaelle Wright’s book Perelandra Soil-less Garden Companion is an exploration in how to see that everything in our lives– our work, home projects, and art– really are gardens. She works in very deep ways with the sprit of nature, and her work is not only revolutionary but very practical, with numerous healing tools and flower essences for sale. The site always sparks new ideas for me and is very healing by its nature of giving and sharing love.

God Laughs in Flowers

Laughter is the best medicine.

Flowers are one of the strongest creations on Earth, so I would like to invite you to explore the benefits to your well being and wellness by trying a variety of flower essences and essential oils. You may discover for yourself why Sananda has told me that the Earth will be healed by flowers, Grandmothers and your innocence.

The most well known and popular flower essence is Bach’s Rescue Remedy. It is an all-around stress reducer and acts in a potent way to calm and bring peace during any crises, even if they are as small as the jitters you may have before a public speaking engagement. Flower essences can balance your emotional state, allowing any health-giving regimen a better chance to work. My own theory of why they work so well is that I believe flowers are incarnate Angels.

Whether a bouquet on your desk or night stand, essential oils as aroma therapy or a treat for you in your bath, flowers are healers and worth your attention. Edible flowers also bring beauty, joy and songs from the fairy kingdoms to your salads and desserts.

One stunning spring day my friends, Janette and Lorna, and I set out to hike in our favorite place, Soberanes Canyon, to make our own flower essences. Some days are sublime in every way with sweet breezes, wild flower fragrances, sunlight that sparkles and colors that look otherworldly. The nature spirits abound in this park, as it hasn’t been disturbed and is in the magical, mystical coast redwoods of Big Sur, California. We were all in a very good mood, being together on this glorious day, going for a hike and a picnic with a purpose of making a very special flower essence, Mountain Sorrel.

We found our special spot for our picnic under the Redwood canopy with Mountain Sorrel all around us. We had brought our special water and utensils and were ready to begin making the essence.

We were all very amazed, surprised and in wonderment when the flowers started singing. We were alone, and the strongest substances we had eaten were oranges and Chai tea. We were all glad that we were witnesses to this phenomenon together; we all heard it. My friend Janette sang back to the flowers, which increased our laughs and fun. We made the essences and felt very blessed and loved.

The effect this experience had on us was pure Joy. We all spontaneously sang hymns on our hike back, and the amazing part was that we were singing the words to songs we didn’t know. A very curious and very fun day, inspired by the overlighting devas of the woods and flowers– and Love.

I hope you will enjoy learning about the amazing being that a flower is. Their essences are easy to make. Instructions are given here in an earlier blog.

Grandmother Earth, Mother Nature and You, Dear Heart

Would you like to have a simple and easy way to feel refreshed, energized and ready for a new day?

Yes?

When possible do this right at sunrise, or any time of day. Walk into your yard or a natural place and stand barefoot on Grandmother Earth. Turn slowly and thank each of the directions: East, South, West and North. As you do this, sense that each direction has a different quality and feel to it. When I face North, I feel Peaceful, mentally clear and calm. When I face South I feel my child within is ready to play. Facing East always brings me reverence and a willingness to have a new spiritual perspective, even in just small ways. I’ve always loved facing West, as I’ve had the joy of living near the Ocean for most of my life. Looking out to the Western Ocean horizon always brings me expansion, Peace, and creativity.

Next, feel the enlivening Earth energy rising up in you and giving you refreshment. Bend over at the waist, let your arms hang freely and just let go of any worries, doubts or fears. Slowly stand up straight, lift your arms up, open and reach for the sky, and allow the Father Sky Love-Light to fill you up with fresh, life-giving air. Thank each of the Elementals: Air, Water, Fire and Earth for the liveliness they give you.

Next, if you are able to, jump up and down. You are refreshed, reset and ready for a new day.

Today, I’d like to share books and a website that I have found to be valuable. Each have inspired, uplifted and healed me in a very real way.

“In order to enter a deeper relationship with Nature, I was required to become a participant with Nature rather than continue in the role of onlooker. I did not find this at all easy. I was propelled into a metaphysical reality, a reality I did not enter willingly… We come to this planet with a clearly defined destiny, but as soon as we take on human form, we forget it. Life then carries us kicking and screaming toward our perfect goal while we try our hardest to abort the mission.” – Journey into Nature: A Spiritual Adventure by Michael J. Roads

I love this book as it is a real journey into Nature where you meet Pan, the Spirit of Nature, and the beingness of trees, minerals, rivers and dolphins. A truly transformative delight.

The next book came to me as a very welcome surprise one Christmas, from my sister, Charmaine. I had wanted to read it, as in the early 1980’s I had the opportunity of visiting Findhorn in Scotland. The author, Dorothy Maclean, was one of the three founders of the Findhorn community. To Hear the Angels Sing is a book you can read over and over again and feel it is the first time. It is rich with meaning and understanding of the spiritual intelligence and unconditional Love in and of Nature.

“It is said that God is Love. This is so, and as creation becomes more conscious, it expresses greater love. The essence of life, no matter what its consciousness, is Love. This is true of all kingdoms, and man’s greatest contribution to life on the planet is consciously to love, and so to bring health, vigor and beauty to life.” – The Landscape Angel, To Hear the Angels Sing

Today, more than 40 years later, the Findhorn community has become a thriving Ecovillage offering many subjects in Biodynamic gardening and all the principles Findhorn is based on. The main theme is to become beneficial stewards of Grandmother Earth.

Perelandra-ltd.com is a site you could spend days on. It contains Machaelle Wright’s books (some you can read on the site), flower essence products and videos containing her products and lovely views of her Center for Nature Research in Jeffersonton, Virginia. This site is a treasure for sure. Enjoy.
