Nature in and of itself is a healing modality.
It’s amazing how good I feel while hanging out by the creek, hiking in the mountains or simply walking barefoot in the grass. As amazing as I feel when I’m close to nature, I’m always so shocked by how hard it is for me to get to it.
Our lives are so busy with working, family schedules and other obligations that we become completely disconnected from the earth. Unless of course you have a job that is outside, which most of us don’t.
Spending time in nature helps us connect to other living beings besides humans and connect and be nurtured by mother Earth. Something I notice while being in nature is how connected I feel to myself. How grounded I feel as I experience the creek, the red rocks of Sedona and again even my front yard because I have grass.
Even if you live in a big city there are simple ways you can connect to nature. One of the simplest ways is to just look up at the sky and take a deep breath and connect with the clouds, the sun and the sky. Experience feeling the cool or warm air on your face or maybe just smell a flower as you’re walking down the street.
Anything we can do to connect us with nature feeds our soul. Every time we connect with nature and it feeds our soul it reminds us that we are completely connected with everything and everyone. When we feel connected, feelings of loneliness tend to be lighter.
Pay attention every time you walk outside even if it’s just to go to your car and drive somewhere. Look at nature around you and connect to it. I have a lot of plants inside my house that brings nature inside. If you live in the city where there isn’t a lot of trees or nature, look at getting foliage for the inside of your house. The mere fact that I know my plants are alive, while I’m watering them connects me to them in nature.
Slowdown, pay attention and connect with nature in any way that is possible for you.
