Sending down our Roots and remembering the Soul

Re-wilding with the Labyrinth book

For the last two years I’ve been writing, on and off, a short book on my journey with the Labyrinth and the unfolding of its message about its ability to facilitate states of awareness that are conducive to communicating with the plant world. This way of being is rooted in an awareness of our bodies, in particular our Heart and Gut. Our ancestors, indigenous peoples and people living closely to the land tend to live in this state of awareness, simply moving through the natural landscape tends to ‘activate’ this more natural state within us.

This year I’ve had the pleasure of getting to the stage of handwriting and illustrating the book. Its been such a fun and enjoyable process. I’ve loved getting back in to drawing again… Cup of tea, some lush music and the zoning in or out of worlds that bring deep peace, tranquility or excitement. It’s a form of meditation and a way for the soul to say what its ‘feeling’. Another creative outlet in more recent years has been singing! which has come as a bit of surprise! Its helped me in expressing my self vocally but also it appears to be a natural response in the human when connecting with nature. I found it would come in involuntary vocal tones at first. I’d sometimes connect with a plant and a tone would arise from my chest. Looking at other cultures such as the Australian Aborigines and Amazonian tribes they sing directly from the plants and the land. I think there is a natural synthesis that happens when people work closely to the spirit of the land that evokes within us the response to sing or make harmonic noises. Its very primal, it feels amazing and creates an energy as the elements around you dance and celebrate. Watching a recent documentary on the Aborigines I loved the way they creatively expressed their connection to the land and spirit. Everything they seemed to do was an expression and an honouring of that through their art, dance, ritual, song, ceremony. It seems to me that is our true place within the web – As hunter gatherer, expressing our gratitude and celebration with the creation through our own creations, what a beautiful way to live!

Creative Intentions.

Unlocking our Creative Potential…

We are all inherently Creative. Creativity is not restricted to the few who are able to draw, paint, sing, dance or play an instrument (deemed ‘creative’ by the academic mind set). In a sense creativity is what we are, or rather we are in a constant state of creating. The Imagination is key, as well as our senses. Becoming immersed and aware of our bodies helps us to delve deeply in to our creative flow, as well as nourishing our overall well being. Further still, we can direct this focused energy in to any endeavour we feel passionate about.

Creativity;

”The ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships or the like and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods and interpretations.”

The Imagination is key to the creative process. Ideas are like the building blocks or blueprints to a creation before it becomes manifest. Creation can of course be seen in the beauty of the living planet as well as in material man-made structures.

Everything in Creation is made up from atoms- you, me and the chair you are sat on, are just infinitesimally small parts of matter.

According to Quantum physics, our electrons and the electrons in the environment around us repel one another, a bit like when you have two magnets pole to pole. And so the sensation of touch is purely the brains interpretation of the interactions of our electrons and the electro magnetic field around us.

Natures Wisdom

 

Welcome to NaturesWisdom.

This blog will serve as a point for sharing my ramblings, herbal medicines, projects, workshops and news.

Nature is in constant communication and we are a part of this conversation, when we are able to still our minds and listen to our bodies we can ‘hear’ the subtle voice all around us. Synchronicity, life force trying to get your attention is often disregarded as coincidence but become aware of this fact and watch it cascade in to your life with an explosion. It is our feeling awareness not the logical mind that perceives of this all encompassing intelligence. We are taught that the imagination is not grounded in the real world and are labelled a ‘Dreamer’ when it is the Imagination that is key to problem solving, figuring things out, the blueprint of our thoughts are the basis for what becomes manifest. Creation… We are a part of… accompanying to… and assisting with. So the Universe is not a thing that is happening out there but rather through us when we become consciously aware.

This may all sound like hocus pocus”?/! but it is now being rediscovered by Science in the exploration of the Quantum. The double slit experiment demonstrates that the observers expectation of the results have an effect on the outcome, the atoms respond according to the conscious observation of them. Although Science is indeed fascinating and gives clarification to our logical left brains it is in the marriage of both the left and right hemisphere’s of the brain and the whole body ”thinking” awareness that we start to perceive of our natural place within the whole.
