What is your relationship with the Earth?
Do you sense, or can you imagine, that the Earth is a living spiritual being? Would you like to understand its spirit more? And if you already are experiencing a relationship with the Earth, are you aware how it nurtures you? For in reality, the Earth and your inner self are intertwined.
I am concerned about the unnatural separation from the Earth that much of humanity is undergoing. I initiated Earthwise in December 2014 so as to offer ways to deepen your relationship with the Earth.
It seems as though our state of being is changing. Until recent decades we relied on the natural world to support us in our journey on Earth. Nature was something external to us, serving our “progress”. I recognized this widespread attitude in my own life as a student of human ecology in the 70s. Then everything started to shift and many of the traditional support systems, including those of the Earth, became unpredictable and unstable. During this current period of intense change, new systems that support life are not yet in place, so we are living with a greater degree of chaos than humanity has known for many, many years. Perhaps this disturbs you a little. That is natural.
We need to reconnect to the living Earth, on many levels.
In our current paradigm though we will only thrive through recognizing the deep association we have with Nature and the Earth. Simultaneously, through our consciousness, we hold the planet Earth in the balance. Yes, it is up to us to facilitate a new, more stable, phase by our inner actions as much our outer ones. We need to engage both our hearts and minds, reconnecting with the Earth in order to create a new space of vitality and transformation for both the Earth and ourselves to grow. This way of being is also known as Christ consciousness in the western mystery tradition. It works with the divine feminine Gaia in order to co-create a new paradigm of fearlessness.
How do we connect with the Earth?
I offer and explore a range of experiences including journeys to many ancient or naturally beautiful sites in the slow tourism mode, and opportunities to learn tools and exercises to reconnect with nature. We believe this helps recreate an inter-linked consciousness between you and the Earth. This leads to your own spiritual growth in the process. It is a way of working with heart and mind in unity, ever mindful of the Earth we tread on.
We include simple, effective ways to deepen your ties with the Earth: to reconnect with the Earth. This will help you grow in many ways, and it will serve the bigger picture too.
When we reconnect, we are in wonder at nature- and this greatfully aids our “mindfulness”.
We empty our minds, and come into being.
If you want to learn how, I invite you to contact me and connect with Gaia, the living wise Earth.
