Sending down our Roots and remembering the Soul

Nature connection / communication.

When we begin connecting to nature and experience the intelligence that is permeating and penetrating every inch, of every thing, in all that there is. We can begin to form a reciprocal relationship with this greater part of us. There seems to be a natural tendency towards expressing our inner questions, our pain, our troubles, in order to find answers, guidance and healing. At least that is the way in which I have felt compelled to work and guided in relationship to our natural world.

At this time it is essential that we re-establish our connection, particularly in Britain where we have largely forgotten this connection, but in which now a growing calling is being heard by many to re-member our ancestral lands. For a long time we have been going to other cultures to find our spiritual connection, nothing wrong with this, but we are now being asked to connect with the plants, tree’s and spirits of this land. I am not bashing our choices and callings to other lands and traditions, I feel very drawn to the Aboriginal culture of Australia and feel they hold vital keys in aiding in our remembering how it is to live in harmony, reverence and true relationship with our Earth. The point I’m making is that we possess the ability to go directly to the plants, tree’s and nature of our homeland in order to heal, not only ourselves and others but our relationship to our Earth and our collective consciousness.

In asking for help we open a dialogue with the greater source of intelligence that is streaming through us and everything else. There is no shame in asking for guidance and help. Once we realise we don’t have to figure it all out ourselves and that we have support all around us, we can move in to a place of humbly asking for help. A vital principle in this relationship is in offering something in return, I struggled with this concept for ages as my culture and my head would say, ”whats the point in that”, what will a tree gain from my giving a gesture of thanks? It took me a while to develop a way in which it felt right. The modern day culture with which I grew up in saw trees as inanimate lifeforms, though I knew this not to be true, the programming was still there and frankly it seemed kind of pointless to me. Initially I would simply smile and give thanks, just as you would a friend who had helped you out. My teacher, Pam Montgomery, would say to make gifts from our hands, as trees do not possess hands and we have the ability to create with our hands, our hands are extensions of our hearts. I’ll often offer beads that I have coloured but what has emerged to be the most rewarding, enjoyable and effective gift, is to sing. Again my cultural conditioned mind will sometimes mock my vocal offerings. Feelings of shyness, feeling odd to be singing, toning or making guttural sounds if somebody is to walk past is no doubt my own childhood inadequacies of not feeling heard or being able to fully express my self.

Nature will often respond to tone and vibration in elaborate, meaningful ways. I believe that at the atomic level, the atoms connecting the fabric of space, reverberate, sending powerful healing tones out in to the environment of which get reflected back to you.

Asking questions and receiving answers. I felt drawn to working in the following way. In this process we are reclaiming our connection with the spirit of the land, plants, trees, animals and become a part of our own healing journey.

This is specifically referring to a way of healing with the aid of nature but this communication and relationship forming is ongoing. An individual can then carry on building upon this relationship on their own.

A further aspect to this reciprocal relationship is that we may also then begin asking what nature is asking of us, in what ways may we serve. What are we humans being asked to do at this time of great healing.

The process might look something like this;

Whilst out in nature, You ask a question..

Without looking for the answer with your mind, you simply become present, creating a space inside of you where the intelligence of nature can be heard.

Being present within our bodies and feeling in to our, ‘Gut brain’ and ‘Heart brain’, centres, helps us to bypass the conditioned thinking mind. You simply remain in this space of bodily awareness, aware of the presence you feel inside of you. You may feel pulled in a certain direction or you may notice changes in your outer environment, a sudden change in weather, a breeze that kicks up, an animal that crosses your path, a plant that calls to you or the sun piercing a cloud touching its radiance upon your face. Don’t try to ‘logicalize’- (its a new word, I’ve just made up) Don’t, ‘logicalize’ your experience, instead stay present, you may receive an instant knowing or clarity from the answers but simply remain present to the unfolding. It is also possible that the answers will not come in your desired time frame, yet later on you receive the answers in your life circumstances. Asking questions opens up a relational interplay where life/ spirit starts to unfold through you, you are signalling that you are ready to live the answers you are looking for. It may be a longer or shorter process, depending upon the nature of your question.

I will shortly be offering one to one sessions supporting and guiding in this process as well as plant spirit treatments which will soon be up under the plant spirit Healing heading.

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.
