“We need the tonic of wildness… At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”
~ Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods
I have spent the past two days at the farm grounding myself back into my body, and giving myself some soul nourishment time. There have been naps, cups of tea and book reading, and rambles through nature with the dogs at my heels.
I hugged the big Hoop Pine and pulled its healing magic into me. I meditated with its gracious company and felt my energy restored. (Learn how to do that here.)
I gazed into the tangle of greenery and watched birds and koalas going about their daily business.
I rejoiced in the orange trumpet flower that covers the old creamery turned log storage. After which I loaded a wheelbarrow full of wood for the evening’s fire.
I plucked a bunch of fragrant erlicheer jonquils for my bedside table. Their fragrance always reminds me of my mum.
I inspected the strawberries and sweet-peas, which are happily co-existing at my back door.
The King Orchid is putting forth lots of lush new growth and I expect spectacular flowers come spring.
A posy of camelia flowers for the kitchen table.
Then a tray of roasted root vegetables for dinner. After a big week in the channelling space, and spending most of my time in the higher chakras of my body – lots of walking, tree meditations, being in nature, and eating yellow and orange root vegetables draws my energy back down into my lower chakras, firming up my connection to the earth again. If you do a lot of energy work, ever feel spacy or have had a shock or trauma these simple measures will help bring you back into grounded alignment gently and naturally.
Sending much love to you <3 Nicole xoxo
