There may be times when we’ve experienced stress for so long, that it’s become “normal.” Like the proverbial lobster in a pot, when we first we enter life’s waters, they may be cool. As the burner of life beneath us lights, warmth (stress) rises and is relayed to the water in the pot. As its temperature slowly rises, so does our stress.
No matter how much we have and know, part of us may also be searching for something more. Although we may deeply appreciate all that we currently have and know, it’s also part of our inborn desire to want to create, manifest, be, do and have more.
No matter how well thought-out our endeavors, life may neither consult, nor agree with what we have planned for our day. The question is, will we choose to act based on our plans, or will we choose to act based on what we notice arising within and around us in this moment?
Like us, Nature moves, changes, grows and communicates. We are not separate from what we call nature. By being aware of ourself within nature (and therefore our connection to it), we become open and receptive to her messages.
We are not separate from what we call nature. Our hair is like the leaves on a tree. Our bodies are like tree trunks. We reciprocally inhale what the plants exhale. We feed on nature’s fruits, then nourish her soil with our process. We need each other to survive. We aren’t just a part of nature, we are nature. Are you ready to observe and learn about yourself through nature?
Nature is more than just a pretty place. We can experience joy and personal growth through nature, by simply learning to observe nature with kind curiosity. We can also learn to value our integral part within nature’s symphony, as we are a living being within the interplay of all of nature’s life.
If we’d like to heal, we need to feel. Unfortunately, many of us are out of touch with what we feel emotionally and physically—thereby holding our healing at bay.
Beauty moves us. It affects our thoughts, feelings, and being, in powerful and indescribable ways. Some of us experience beauty in ways that change us forever, reforming what we believe about our self and life. In today’s article, we’ll talk about this redeeming and restorative power, of beauty.
If we’re going through or recovering from trauma or stress, life can feel overwhelming and like “too much” to handle. As a coach for willpower and empowerment, I’m familiar with many ways to heal, and one of the most highly-effective and inexpensive methods is nature. In today’s article, we’ll take a look at very simple ways to allow ourself to quietly heal with the power of nature and restore tranquility to our souls.
When we’re up against resistance, it may feel like trying to move through a gale-force wind and getting nowhere. Have any of us been in a hurricane or strong storm with whipping winds? What about in our personal life? Were there times when we did all we could to try to move through the windy words and stonewalling of someone else’s resistance to our ideas or ways, yet we got nowhere?
