Nature's Healing Power

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. … There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.
— Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

Allowing Nature To Do Its Work

 

We can learn a thing or two from the rhythm of nature by observing with wonderment.  Nature doesn't rush, it doesn't beat itself up, it just takes its time.  The beauty of nature lies in its confidence, to bloom when it's damn well ready to bloom and to storm when it's damn well ready to storm.  

I can remember when my body was filled with so much anxiety It was almost like I repelled the acts of nature; observing the ocean waves and walking through the woods alone were once scary.  I can recall two specific times that I felt my vibration up against the flow of nature and me not being vibrationally ok, I wanted to run as far as possible from this "right" energy.   It was as though we were colliding into one another.  

Through yoga, I was taught to not collide but to become one with the healing power of nature; it's that vibration that heals.  At first, it's an uncomfortable feeling when you're filled with anxiety to go up against something so pure, that vibration pulling for you to catch the wave of balance. 

Tapping into your breath, softening the body, and finally ALLOWING the rhythm of nature to bring you back to peace.    

Do you feel like you have some healing to do?  Anxiety is a message that healing needs to take place.  Be patient with yourself and immerse yourself in nature. 

Much love and healing, Jen


Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.

You didn’t come into this world. You came out of it, like a wave from the ocean. You are not a stranger here.
