20 Ways To Strengthen Your Connection To Mother Earth

‘Then I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.
And I say the sacred hoop of my people was one of the many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy…
But anywhere is the center of the world.’

20 Ways To Strengthen Your Connection To Mother Earth

We cannot separate ourselves from the Earth. She provides for us in so many ways; the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, the materials from which we house and clothe ourselves. We have forgotten that we are part of her. What we do to the earth we are also doing to ourselves.

Over time many of us have become distant friends with our planet. We no longer hear or understand her.  Some of us don’t even visit her in her natural spaces anymore.  And yet she continues to love and nurture us.

20 Ways To Strengthen Your Connection To Mother Earth

These ideas might help you reconnect with the Earth, and all she has to offer us. The energy can be used for healing, balancing and grounding us, and for opening us up to higher levels of awareness.

  1. Sit under a tree and become consciously aware of that tree. Introduce yourself to it. Open to its energy.
  2. Go for a walk by a river or creek. Sit for a while and just watch nature.
  3. Swim in the ocean.  Let the water cleanse and revitalise you physically, emotionally and energetically.
  4. Collect some interesting stones that you find on your walks.  Perhaps you’ll be blessed with a feather or a pretty leaf too. Place them somewhere in your home or workplace where they can remind you of the outside world.
  5. Place some cut flowers in your house.  Flowers heal and nurture us with their colour, scent and energy.
  6. Play with crystals – wear them, put them beside your bed or on your windowsill, and hold them!
  7. Sit at a look-out on a hill or mountain. Let peace wash over you.  Feel the Earth breathing in and out.
  8. Plant a garden, even if it’s just a few herbs in a pot.  Nurture those plants. Let their tending be a meditation on mindfulness and nature.
  9. Dance in the rain.
  10. Play with a pet. Animals are wise, loving souls with so much to give us.
  11. Celebrate each season. Enjoy the heat of Summer, eating watermelon and swimming, enjoy Autumn and the falling leaves – the refreshing change in the air, enjoy Winter with slow foods, short days and cold nights, and then celebrate Spring, when new life emerges, leaves and flowers burst forth and the sun begins to sparkle again.
  12. Pay attention to the cycle of the moon and how that makes you feel.
  13. Take a picnic to a favourite park or nature place. Take some friends, a pet or a book, but leave your phone, laptop and worries at home.
  14. Visit a Farmers Market and buy some fresh, seasonal organic produce to nourish yourself and your family. Understand more about where your food comes from, and how it can heal you.
  15. Meditate and consciously connect into the grounding, healing and stabilising energies of Mother Earth
  16. Go outside at night and look at the stars and Moon. If you can’t see them from where you live, consider taking a weekend away in nature to reconnect with the night sky.
  17. Sit by a campfire and listen to the crackle and dance of the flames.
  18. Watch an insect, bird or small animal going about its day. Allow yourself to become quiet and calm and open to any lessons that the creature shares with you.
  19. Visit a wild space. A place where there is only nature. Let it fill you with peace.
  20. Sit in the sunshine and let the warm rays of the sun enter your body with their healing light. Feel yourself relax and unwind.

2019’s Astrological Events To Awaken and Support Us – Info and Home Study Course


“Everybody has a little bit of the sun and moon in them. Everybody has a little bit of man, woman, and animal in them. Darks and lights in them. Everyone is part of a connected cosmic system. Part earth and sea, wind and fire, with some salt and dust swimming in them. We have a universe within ourselves that mimics the universe outside.”

~ Suzy Kassem

On January 3rd I held my first webinar of the year for my membership group. We discussed the energies of 2019 and how best to use them in our lives, and I also spent time talking about the four-year period (2019 -2022) we have just entered, which is heralded by some incredible astrological events that are happening around us right now and will continue to happen over the next few months.

In response to these events I’ve created a special bundle of four downloadable guided meditations and a 38-page workbook to help you work with and be transformed by the current celestial and cosmic energies. You can access it here now if you’re impatient and don’t feel like reading through to the end of this post.

The Coming Change And How It Can Support You

This four year period is known as The Threshold, and it is being kicked off by a series of astrological events that have already started. I’d like to briefly outline them for you.

January 3 – The Quadrantids Meteor Shower

This meteor shower was most visible over the 3rd and 4th of January, but for the next two months it will be raining microscopic particles down upon us. This shower of golden stardust (literally!) is also the very basis of our own life – we too are made from stardust.

The galactic energy of this meteor shower is awakening something within us. We are beginning to feel both our significance and insignificance in the bigger scheme of the cosmos. That we are here right now is no accident. We are connected to all things, and it is time for us to step into the space of being good ancestors while we are alive and conscious – ensuring the viability of the earth for future generations. We see that our lives matter – that this life and how we live it matters. Not just to us, but for our future selves and for those who will come after us through our family tree.

January 5-6 – Partial Solar Eclipse

This partial Solar Eclipse began the process of activating and rebalancing our Solar Plexus energy. It is waking us out of struggle, helping us to reconnect to flow. It is strengthening our identifty, individuality and resolve. We begin to understand who we are and – most importantly – what we want to contribute in the world and what matters most to us. As the Solar Eclipse asserts its energies we are supported over the next few months to make plans, to start new projects, to build on existing work, and to make changes that will positively affect the course of our life. It heralds the start of a deepening need within us to live in greater alignment with our values, and to live from a place of ethical and spiritual congruency.

January 20 – 21 – Total Lunar Eclipse Supermoon

This eclipse is the ‘Night of the Luminous Soul‘. It gifts us the capacity to become calm warriors in our families and communities. The eclipse heralds energies of courage, clarity, determination, resilience, patience and empathy. We realise that we are not our struggle, and we can choose to align ourselves with solutions and actions that will change the face and future of our world, starting right now. It is a time for revelations and breakthroughs, for divine inspiration and conscious creativity. It is a time for hope and optimism.

How to Use These Energies in Your Own Life

  1. Spend time in nature, on your own or with a companion animal. Allow yourself to relax and then to connect more deeply into nature. As you relax trust that you will begin to know yourself better, and that the best way forward for your life will begin to present itself to you.
  2. Get outside, wherever you are. Become aware of the sky above you, and of the stars, sun and moon. Become aware of the earth beneath your feet, of the air you breathe, of the food you eat. Be in your body. Be of this world. But, also, feel your soul.
  3. Spend time meditating and journalling, supported by these cosmic energies.

I’ll be blogging about the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse over the next few days with some specific free activities for you to try.

Meanwhile, if you head over to my store, I’ve bundled together four powerful guided downloadable meditations and created a companion workbook to support you as you work with these celestial energies. The Stardust Connection Meditation Bundle will help you to connect with and explore Earth Energies, Ancestor Energies, your Solar Plexus energies and personal power, and the Stardust Energies. There is over an hour’s worth of Guided Meditations and a 38-page workbook. The workbook holds specific instructions for using the four guided meditations, as well as journalling activities and reflection/awareness exercises.

The material in the Stardust Connection Meditation Bundle can be used at any time over the next four years, and beyond. My intention with this bundle is to help you become confident in your direction, your intuition, and your contribution to the unfolding history of the world and humanity. To access the bundle or to learn more about it go to my store or click on this link.

Much love to you, Nicole ❤ xx

Simple Ways To Reconnect With The Earth

As we move into the energies of 2019 we have a potent opportunity to reconnect with the Earth, to understand our ourselves as belonging to her rather than merely living upon her.

We will come to see clearly that what we do to the land and the sky and the oceans we also do to ourselves.

We cannot separate ourselves from the Earth.  She provides for us in so many ways; the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, the materials from which we house and clothe ourselves.

Over time many of us have become distant friends with our planet.  We no longer hear or understand her.  Some of us don’t even visit her in her natural spaces any more.  And yet she continues to love and nurture us.

These ideas might help you reconnect with the Earth, and all she has to offer us.  The energy can be used for healing, balancing and grounding us, and for opening us up to higher levels of awareness.

  1. Sit under a tree and become consciously aware of that tree.  Introduce yourself to it. Open to its energy.
  2. Visit a river or creek.  Sit for a while and just watch nature.
  3. Go outside and take yourself for a walk. Even in the middle of a city. No matter what the weather. Feel the breeze on your face, or the sun or the snow. Look up at the sky and orient your body to that. Connect to the moment.
  4. Swim in an ocean, lake, river or stream.  Let the water cleanse and revitalise you physically, emotionally and energetically.
  5. Collect some interesting stones that you find on your walks.  Perhaps you’ll be blessed with a feather or a pretty leaf too. Place them somewhere in your home where they can remind you of the outside world.
  6. Place some cut flowers in your house.  Flowers heal and nurture us with their colour, scent and energy.
  7. Play with crystals – wear them, put them beside your bed or on your windowsill, and hold them!
  8. Sit at a look-out on a hill or mountain. Let peace wash over you.  Feel the Earth breathing in and out.
  9. Plant a garden, even if it’s just a few herbs in a pot.  Nurture those plants. Let their tending be a meditation on mindfulness and nature.
  10. Collect some houseplants for your home or office. Houseplants clean your air and have been proven to lower stress levels too.
  11. Dance in the rain. Like you did as a child. Never did? Well then, it’s long overdue.
  12. Play with a pet. Animals are wise, loving souls with so much to give us.
  13. Celebrate each season. Enjoy the heat of Summer, eating watermelon and swimming, Enjoy Autumn and the falling leaves – the refreshing change in the air, enjoy Winter with slow foods, short days and cold nights, and then celebrate Spring, when new life emerges, leaves and flowers burst forth and the sun begins to sparkle again.
  14. Pay attention to the cycle of the moon and how that makes you feel.
  15. Take a picnic to a favourite park or nature place. Take some friends, a pet or a book, but leave your phone, laptop and worries at home.
  16. Visit a Farmers Market and buy some fresh, seasonal organic produce to nourish yourself and your family. Understand more about where your food comes from, and how it can heal you.
  17. Breathe. Pay attention to the flow of air into and out of your body. Once you are in mindfulness with your breath look around and connect to the trees or plants that are keeping your air clean and oxygenated. (If there is a scarcity of trees consider a houseplant, support the people who are tree planters, and activate for changes to legislation so that there are more green spaces where you live.)
  18. Meditate and consciously connect into the grounding, healing and stabilising energies of the Earth
