A dharmic approach based on the Five Elements
Mother Earth is so generous supporting us unconditionally, providing to us the nutrition and the resources we do need to live. Nature brings so much beauty and abundance into our lives. We receive her healing benefits just by being in contact with her. No words, no explanations are needed. She is source of inspiration. She is the source of creation.
Do we take care of her as much as she takes care of us?
Originally we came on this planet as guardians. We received all tools to create a harmonious, nurturing relationship with the earth.
Our ancestors were respecting her, they were asking permission before causing any type of intrusion, they were thankful for all food and resources she generously brought into their lives.
Though, what happened?
So many ancestral rituals and traditions have been dismissed. So much harm has been caused instead of focusing towards harmony.
Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22nd. Numerous communities are taking actions and creating movements for the environmental protection worldwide. The Paris Agreement was signed by more than 120 countries on earth day 2016.
In the last three decades I had the chance to learn from different traditions with aborigines in Australia, with masters in Asia, with shamans in Americas and Europe. Their healing modalities are based on nature principles and resources.
Caring for the earth in all its elements is a journey inwards and outwards.
All mindful journey begins with a clear intention. Your intention may be peace, nurturing, acceptance, love_ This intention is bringing a special touch and frequency into your life. It reflects in your thoughts, in your actions, in your relationships. It does create a ripple effect around you and leads you to experience synchronicities and the law of attraction.
The more clear is our mind, the better we can serve. Knowledge is a main source from which we can share and take actions. When we seek clarity in our mind, we become more sensitive to our environment. The more mindful we become of our breath and the air we breathe, the more attentive we are to the quality of the air that surrounds us. We notice clearly if there is contamination and seek ways to take care of the Air Element.
Watching the clouds moving in the sky passing by leads us to clear our thoughts and to access a peaceful state of mind. Through breathing practices we clarify and strengthen the prana (vital energy) within and around us. Star gazing and watching the full moon shining bright in the sky at night brings a sense of space. It opens the gate to light and relaxation.
The intensity of our actions and development is affecting our wellbeing as well as the one of our environment. When there is too intense fire, it can become destructive. When we act with clear purpose and direction we reflect a healthy Fire Element which will be based on healthy values for our environment. Looking at the sunrise lifts our energy up, bringing hope and inspiration for the day. The sunlight creates the food we eat through photosynthesis, and nourishes us by creating strength building Vitamin D in our bodies.
We can receive the nourishing energy of the sun by opening our mouth and receiving the first sun-rays of the day at the base of our tongue. Taking a few deep breaths to welcome the energy of the new day.
Watching the sunset at the end of the day supports the relieve of stress and give a chance for our metabolism to find ease and relaxation for a restful night.
The water is a sensitive element that responds very fast to temperature changes and mood changes. Dr. Masaru Emoto shows the influence of our thoughts and frequency on the molecules of water: click here In this time of Earth Celebrations, it is a beautiful opportunity to do cleanse and detox following a healthy diet program to stay healthy and to balance our emotions.
Nature requires also our care and attention. We all can bring positive influence to purify and to care for our waters, rivers, lakes and oceans, by choosing organic, healthy options in the products we use and in our lifestyle. click here to read more about Healing Waters
Our main resources and foundation require a healthy Earth Element to manifest and to grow with prosperity. Mother Earth supports us, she nurtures us unconditionally. She deserves to receive attention and I invite you all to plant a seed on this special day.
When we hug a tree, we can feel the stillness and aliveness of its trunk. When we sit below it we feel it’s roots and receive a comforting sensation. Laying down in the grass, feeling the heart of the earth resonating within us, supporting us, brings a profound nurturing sensation.
When you seek prosperity, support, foundation, I highly recommend you to walk in nature, to touch a tree, to sit on a rock, to feel this unconditional support that is here for us. It is a generous gift and surprisingly reenforcing blissful experience.
Exploring the secrets that Mother Earth and Nature offers to us leads us to access our own true nature in a graceful and simple way.
Happy Earth Month!
