Take a moment to just breathe
Hello little gems,
Life can be really overwhelming at times & it's not often in our modern world that we get to explore the earth around us. So, in case you aren't able to go outside today, here's a little slice of nature just for you.
The natural world is a wonderful thing. Spring brings with it new life, colour & hope. Knowing that once again the trees with blossom & the flowers will bloom, as they always have. It's reassurance that we too shall bloom once more. If you pay more attention & place your eyes to the ground, you'll see pockets of spring sprouting from the depths of the earth's winter. She's waking up from her frosty slumber.
Seeing the trees around me I realised that there were others who walked before me, who have left their mark on the world I wonder about the similarities of those humans whose hearts were filled with the same wanderlust as mine. Those who also heard the trees talking, felt the breeze on their skin & felt a part of earth itself.
Growing up we lose touch with our inner child, but they still exist within us. Be kind to them & cheers their playfulness & lack of fear. Let their creativity & imagination flow through you.
There's a quote I read recently from 'The Green Witch' by Arin Murphy-Hiscock that reads: "A green witch does not deny the world around her. She accepts it & seeks to understand how to integrate it into her spiritual practice. The green witch serves as a bridge between past & present, new & old." These two worlds will progress & live simultaneously but it's up to us to find our own balance between the two. Taking the time to reconnect with the planet we call home.
Whilst my career & creativity belong in the hustle & bustle of a busy city filled with coffee shops, fashion & technology, at my core I belong with the earth. The quaint little cottage in an enchanted woodland filled with flowers & fairy gardens. And who's to say we can't have both? They coexist together, just as they should. Nature always finds a way to prevail. Its power & determination was present before us & shall be ever growing after us - by which point we shall become one with the earth.
Our minds are constantly being filled with information & we can be updated with what is going on in the world in a matter of seconds. Sometimes that news is unbearable to fathom. Whilst we should fight for what's right, we also need time to clear our minds & be prepared for what's to come.
Listening to the earth & seeking advice & clarification will allow us to connect with ourselves & as I said, life can be really overwhelming at times & it's not often in our modern world that we get to explore the earth around us. So, in case you aren't able to go outside today, here's a little slice of nature just for you.
Below is an ASMR video of this writing, a section with my voice & then a section with the video repeated but my voice remains silent, so you can hear the world for what it truly is...
So, take a moment to just breathe.
