It’s been awhile since I sat down to write to you. Yet, every single day you have been in my thoughts, and my prayers. My blessings surround each of you a hundred times over, and embrace you with softness, peace, safety, and love. You are each a beautiful, authentic vine growing forth from the tree of Life. And it is a blessing to accompany you in your journeys as you accompany me.
I have needed some deep healing in my life this last month and instead of writing I have been turning to the natural world for comfort and healing.
Nature offers me its love each day. It connects me to the deeper spiritual nourishment my soul needs.
Have you ever taken notice of how a broken plant heals and grows as long as it is tended to? It needs to be given light, new soil, pruned, and watered. We are similar in our need to be tended to by being comforted, touched (we all need to be held) bathed (cleaned, forgiven, offering forgiveness, etc.) and to be in the presence of light (sunlight, hope, joy, etc.).When we are tended to in these ways we can be renewed and healing will happen.
In my own life I experience a deep connection to God, the Divine in nature. It is where I see balance and know of harmony. There is even a melody in nature that I hear, and feel within my whole body that creates equilibrium: it’s the sound of tree leaves blowing in the wind, the melody of the birds, the colorful dance of the flowers.
I invite you to be present in nature. To be still and watch and listen, the kind of listening that comes forth from your whole being.
Recognize your connection to the earth and how the earth responds to you.
Notice how nature accepts you as part of it.
Notice the little things: an ant walking, a fish coming to the surface, birds flying in the sky, the intricacies of a tiny flower…
There is something sacred in the earth for each of us.
The earth heals, us day by day, just as it heals itself.
We also bring healing to the earth as we notice and care for it, which in turn heals us. In other words, when we offer love we receive love.
May you be blessed by the earth’s healing gifts today and always.
Blessings, Erin, Bella Bleue
