Nature’s Message: Inspiration and Hope are All Around Us

When we take the time to see nature around us, we can learn deep truths about life. I live in the Northeast. The changes in the weather from one day to the next is a complete mystery this year….You never know what the day may bring. This can be true in our life too…we may wake up and expect the day to be one way, and it brings something completely different or unexpected. But when this happens, we have the choice to embrace the opportunity to be inspired by the experience or we can choose to completely miss it. This morning, I looked out my doorstep and saw this image in nature speaking to me.

This image is ironic in some ways. It’s the image of snow embracing a plant that has died for the season, against the backdrop of new life ‘springing forth.’ Walking out my door I could have just seen the snow, and the decaying plant, but instead, the green…the image of inspiration, and HOPE, caught my eye, and thus, changed the way I woke up to my day.

I felt

HOPE: New beginnings are just around the corner, for each of us, if we just open our eyes and take the time to look for them.

INSPIRATION: if nature can break through the winter and live, then we can break through those things that hold us back and LIVE our lives!

My invitation to you:

1.Take some time today to pause and look at life around you.

2. Note what you see.

3. Let yourself feel the inspiration within you.

4. Put the inspiration into your day and see where it leads you.

5. Write down what inspired you and where it lead you.

Blessings on your day,

“Healing” Winter Snow

20120229-175348.jpg
My husband walked in the door…”Did you see the snow?” “No!” I hadn’t even realized that it was snowing. That’s the wonder of a winter night. Here I am all warmed up in my house; the curtains are pulled shut; my cat is snoring on the bed beside my computer.

It’s quiet… And yet there is so much going on outside in the world. The white snowflakes are falling quickly, quietly, softly on the earth; changing the sights around, and leaving their mark. No matter how quiet the snow is, we find it. We can touch it and feel it; we can taste it; we can hear it crunch under our feet; we can see how it’s transformed the world and yet it is so quiet when it arrives.

This is what a moment of healing awe is like for me. It’s that profound moment of something unexpected, yet so wonderfully welcomed that it literally transforms something in you and awakens something special. This awakening happened when I threw on my boots, grabbed my camera, called the dog and ran out into the back yard.

“Pause!”

Take in a breath…shhhh….listen do you hear it? The snow is whispering in my ear: ‘I am here.’ Yes something greater than me is here.”

“Stop.”

The dog runs by jumping playfully back and forth around in circles. White snow on his little black nose. And I’m back to reality.

Blessings, Erin
