As I said previously in my blog, I’m always looking and advising to be close to nature. Why? It could be a question with so many answers. The most powerful answer that I can share personally with you now, would be because it provides a beautiful and powerful sense of release and connection within our soul. And because it’s an incredible meditation tool
Let me expand this a little bit more. We know that nature is filled with wonders. When we get in touch with them, we can absorb that magic back to us. For example, nature can give us strength and at the same time softness. It can empty us and at the same time fill us up with creative and lovely thoughts. It has the power to bring us back to the present just by touching the earth. It can remind us of the power of our bodies with every breath felt in our lungs and heart. It can release tension, anxiety, and stress.
To make it the most easy to us; nature is everywhere. Even if we live in big cities, we can go back home in the deepest part of our hearts and fulfill ourselves with this extraordinary energy. A power that is there for us to use it and take advantage of it. We can visit a small park, sit next to a tree, find a garden of flowers, find a hike, go to the beach or to a river. It’s everywhere, and there aren't any excuses.
Anyway we see it, if we’re willing, nature can speak to us and share with us its expansive energy. And once found, we can use it and transform it. We can leave the unnecessary and grab the wisdom, peace, joy, and much more from nature. We could connect with that knowledge that resides within and the one that is without (around us). A tree will grow its roots at the same time that starts growing a trunk and branches; looking for the strength from the earth and the power of the sun. It finds its own path with the wisdom that owns. We have the same knowledge and power, we just need to remember and return to our path or empower our journey.
I choose and invite you to do the same and get close to nature and get in its depths and shower yourself with its wisdom. At the end, I believe that the beauty to connect with nature is that it’s in close relationship with the connection with my soul; my home, my truth. And it can be yours too if you want.
The light I see in me, recognizes the light I see in you,
