Dear reader, this post is from the archives of AskGCW.
Dear one, do you feel shaky, off balance, flighty, un-tethered?
Our great mother, the Earth asks you to lie down heart to heart, belly to belly with her and absorb her loving grounding energy into your body.
When you feel anxious she will calm you, when you feel unmoored, she will give you solidity. When you are tired, she will fill you with energy. When you feel lost, she will provide a home, a safe resting place, a solid foundation.
Go to the Earth when you find yourself off balance, jittery, bereft.Let her energy heal you.
Let her envelope you in the energy, the safety, and feeling of home. Know that we belong to each other!
In times of trouble, times of grief, reconnect with the earth, your home, the solid foundation of your physical life.
Reconnect with her flowing waters, rhythmic waves, rooted trees, plant life of all descriptions, strong winds, thunderstorms, dense stones, fertile soil, her buzzing, flying, gliding creatures. Lay your body in the damp sand of a beach, the grasses beneath a large tree.
Lean against me and those of my tree community. Let us support you. Let us heal your spirit.
We are not inert unfeeling masses of atoms laidout in various interesting patterns, but living breathing knowing energetic beings who share this planet with you, who benefit when you thrive.
Let yourself reconnect with the joy and delight of childhood as you lay in the grass, smelling a sweet clover blossom as if for the first time, observing a firefly at dusk, looking up in awe at the moon and stars.
Know once again, and feel the peace, oneness, and belonging to our earth that will heal and renew your tired spirit.
