“Make your heart like a lake with a calm, still surface
and great depths of kindness.”
Sometimes, the simplest way to soothe your Soul is to spend a little time in Nature. A walk along the river, a cleansing dip in the ocean, some time sitting on the grass or playing outside with our pets.
Nature has great power to heal and restore us. All we need to do is avail ourselves of that energy by spending a little time there.
Even in the midst of a city we can usually find a spot to hear the wind rustling the leaves of the trees, or feel the sunshine on our face.
Time spent in nature will fill you up, and give you peace. It will restore what is missing, and comfort what has become care-worn or broken.
You can be on your own, but surrounded by birds and flowers and trees. Or you can bring a book, a picnic, a friend…
And nature is surprisingly transportable.
You can bring part of it home with you, where it can continue to soothe and uplift you.
Potted plants, fresh flowers, incense, essential oils – all of them can help you find or create a better space.
And of course there is always the joy of the Farmers’ Markets:
One of my favourite things about the healing power of Nature is that possibility of re-discovering our sense of wonder. And we all need a little more of that in our lives. The video below demonstrates that magic perfectly! Wishing you a wonder-full day ♥
