We are being beckoned to slow down and evaluate what is important. To take stock of where we should be redirecting and letting go. To do this within the framework of a reciprocal relationship, I feel we must connect with our personal understanding of ground. Our connection to the deep places within and around us...
The ground can be viewed as a foundation that we build from. It is a baseline, a container, a framework, a home, our bodies. She is the animate Earth beneath our feet and the amazing organism that enables us to live. To understand this is to begin to connect with the richness of what your DNA knows and years for you to remember. Nature is a path to the divine.
Deepening your relationship to your ground...
•Create a 10-20 mile radius around your home to explore. Learn about the plants, animals and geology within this area and what their behaviors/characteristics are during the winter. This is a wonderful way to enter into a deeper relationship to your place and root into the season.
•Be intentional about your time in Nature. Allow for the saturation, nourishment and replenishing. Reveal in this feeling.
•Uncover your own way of being in the world by honoring space for unfolding, uncovering, release, stillness.
•Revisit the same spaces and listen for what wisdom they have to share with you.
•Listen to the standing meditation in the post below and carry this with you on a walk.
Stepping into relationship with your ground/your place during the winter months, enables us to see what is truly important and to emerge with a new sense of purpose...
