Remembering Our Connection with Nature

We are all an intricate part of Nature. During our current journey in form, she is our home. We are sisters and brothers to her in ways that most had forgotten.  But now the remembering is occurring. My message here is for everyone to remember that we are One with the consciousness of Nature; every element, animal, plant, stone, .... All of Life.  As we and she are all part of God/Creator, this in turn makes us One with and a part of one another.

I will suggest here that a primary step in reconnecting with Mother Nature and her kingdoms is consciously connecting with your own body and its multibody system (physical, etheric, mental and emotional/feeling bodies).  Remembering how to listen intuitively to our bodies and the Body Elemental that oversees them is a marvelous first step!

Reconnecting Through Our Physical Bodies

It is time to go beyond the mind in our relationship with Nature and with ourselves.  We are entering a time of the heart, of intuition,  harmony (the circle) and reconnection to the whole.  But where do we begin?

Our reconnection physically through earthing, meditating on the earth, against a tree, standing barefoot in the ocean or a river, are all tangible bridges to Nature that everyone can experience whether you are aware of the voice of Nature yet or not.  It begins with connection. So when you walk barefoot upon Earth, you are in essence connecting with ourselves in a more expansive way.

Many animals communicate with Earth through their feet or  paws, connecting with the frequency and telepathing back and forth to life all around this way.  I must say that I also communicate with Nature through my feet, as walking barefoot is my favorite way to travel when the ground and weather are supportive of my doing so.  Over the years my awareness through my feet has grown so that I am aware of the smallest of creatures in the trail or walkway before I come upon them.  This allows me to stop and say hello, or gleefully step over them with a brief greetings or note of gratitude.


Our Unity Pillar

Earthing also allows us to more easily be aware of our pillar of Light that connects us from Mother Earth's heart to the Soul Star of Creation in the Great Central Sun.  This pillar is also referred to as our Unity Pillar. When present and fully aligned it is a channel of communication of Heaven to Earth through us, thus allowing us to be a conscious part of the cosmic conversation.  But our pillar can become misaligned when we are choosing to be in discord of some type. 

Setting up and connecting with our Unity Pillar is quite simple once you know how to do it.  Here is the link to an mp3 I created for a telesummit a ways back that will walk you through the process:

The more stable our Unity Pillar, the easier your conversation with Nature within you and all around you will become. Feel the pulse of the energy coming through you and enhancing the bond you truly have with all of Life.

Connecting Through Our Heart and Feelings

I will touch briefly here on the the expansion of our heart and feelings in relatioinship with Nature and the development of a conscious conversation with her. As I have stated often, Nature is always speaking with us.  She does so in through a vast array of frequencies and expressions.  The commonality is that all these frequencies and expressions are based in Love and are a reflection of how we see and communicate with her.

If you truly desire to connect with Nature and hear her, the most direct way is through your heart and feeling body.  Our multibody systems and that of Earth and her kingdoms are 70-80% feeling body expressions.  This is a direct correction with Earth being 80% water which is the element of the emotional body, the divine femininne and divine flow.  Our Divine Spark or True Self resides in the heart; our heart and the heart of all Life.  Hence the saying heart to heart, soul to soul.  This is where the essence of unity connects us all.

To connect clearly with our heart and feelings requires that we quiet the mind and choose inner peace. I choose to be in peace.

To connect clearly with our heart and feelings requires that we quiet the mind and choose inner peace and harmony.

I choose to be in peace.

I AM harmony.

I hear the voice of Nature, for she and I are One. ♥

Put aside all that you believe about the consciousness of Nature, especially if those beliefs tell you that we are separate, that we cannot hear one another due to the differences in how we all communicate.  Like the Nature kingdoms that are all around you, your body is speaking to you all of the time.  Put  your hands on your heart, close your eyes, breathe and listen.

I AM One with the God I AM within me,

I AM One with all of Life. 

I See, Hear and Feel You. And my heart is filled with Joy! ♥

Thank you all for remembering our connection and making choices for everyone to be in harmony once again. I will continue this conversation in other posts and in more depth in my upcoming books. Stay tuned.

Animals as Teachers and Assistants

Spirithawk in his youth

A very wise friend of mine once said to me “Look into the eyes of unconditional love and you will find yourself.” This friend’s name was Spirithawk, a wolf dog and much honored part of my family. The animal kingdom as a whole embodies the energy of unconditional love, and as such are profound teachers to all of us as we find our way back to this pure and natural state held within our child self–our innocence.

Native Americans and other indigenous peoples have long acknowledged the messages and spiritual power of individual animals. Referred to as “totems,” ceremonies have been developed in reverence to certain animals. Wolf is seen as master teacher, bear as healer, butterfly as transition, hawk as protector, and eagle as divine connection. Other more “gentle” totems include the skunk representing respect, the hummingbird as joy, dragonfly as inner world connection, and the list goes on.

Becoming aware of animals as messengers and totems of one’s own inner essence can bring an enriching link to nature. As your awareness grows you may find that the synchronicity in which various animals come to you or pass in and out of your life may have deep significance to what is transpiring in your life at that moment.

- Have you ever noticed butterflies flying around or even landing on you in a time of transformation in your life?

- A deer crossing your path can be telling you to reach within to your gentle power:

- An eagle flying nearby can be telling you that someone of the Heavenly Host is connecting with you or wishing to do so.

- A Skunk got your attention? This is a sign to respect yourself or give respect to others.

The amazing ability of animals to speak to us through action and form is one of many ways in which they help us to understand our own deepest selves. In so doing, we are then challenged to embrace them and ourselves in unconditional love or negate those feelings through fear and ignorance.

The first, and for some more dramatic challenge, is to acknowledge the deep intelligence of animals. It is not the type of intelligence that will score high on a human IQ exam, but rather the intelligence of nature; of Knowing in its raw form that all of life is interconnected and speaks to us on a multitude of levels.

There are many references for learning more about animal totems and animal communication as a whole. Two of my favorites are Animal Speak, by Ted Andrews, and Medicine Cards, The Discovery of Power Through the Ways of Animals, by Jamie Sams, David Carson, and Angela C. Werneke.

The domestication level of an animal can often influence their connectivity with and awareness of their wild surroundings. This again is something they can teach or reflect to humans. A cat, horse, or dog that spends its life inside a house, pasture, or on a leash, tends to be much less connected with nature and aware of the environment than those who are allowed to be out interfacing with nature by exploring, eating, playing, and just being.

Likewise, a person who spends little time in nature being quiet, listening, and observing will have a much greater chance of putting himself in harm’s way than one who has learned to connect with nature and listen, even beyond the chaos of the city, to hear what his environment is communicating and make decisions accordingly.

Many animals have been able to demonstrate their innate trust and knowingness of life in emergencies and other traumatic situations. Dogs, horses and even elephants in particular have been called upon to assist and often take the lead in such situations to bring people to safety, or warn them off in the first place. In years past I learned to allow my dog (or dogs) to take the lead while out hiking so they could warn me of danger.

Ishnahnay: “Someone is coming – it’s time to leave”

There has been many a time when I have taken a different path or been led home after taking a “wrong” turn in the forest by the natural guidance system of my dogs. Other animals have also been stepping forward to assist and to warn of danger. Dolphins, elephants, birds, cats, and others have stepped in to warn humans of danger or save a human life on many occasions. A well-documented example was the December 26, 2004 tsunami in Thailand and Sumatra when all the animals went inland before the wave hit indicating to humans who were paying attention to do the same.

One of the most dramatic lessons animals teach is to pay attention to what the Earth and those around us are saying, emitting, or suggesting through their actions. All of life, including the Earth herself, emits energies or frequencies of communication and intention. When one is tuned in as consciously as most animals are, these energies can be read like a book, taking potential surprise out of most situations and instead allowing a partnership with life to be created. This tuned in state of being is augmented by animals being so masterfully in the now, or present moment.

We hear much of “being in the now” these days. This refers to emptying our heads of unnecessary clutter and not thinking of the past or future so that we can be fully in the present moment to receive the gifts or danger alerts that are waiting for us. I have often sat and watched my animal companions or wild animals in order to learn from them how to better immerse myself in the present moment. Whatever the activity, animals are always present in the moment, while at the same time completely aware of their larger environment and beyond.

Part of this connectivity is seen in the animal’s normal state of being. They are ever aware of what is going on around (and in) them. No to-do lists, worrying about this or that, thinking ahead, or pining over the past while driving in rush hour traffic or hiking down a mountain trail. They listen to the heartbeat of the Earth, to the voice of nature, of Creation, that is in a constant state of motion and activity.

You may have heard the saying, “If you look into the eyes of an animal, you will truly see yourself.” This truth is two-fold in nature. First, animals hold the energy of unconditional love, and through that they reflect yourself back to you through their eyes. Second, in any moment where you are truly looking into an animal’s eyes, they are holding you fully in their presence, in the now, and asking you to do the same of them. See the teacher. Be the teacher. It is a partnership born of God.

Consciousness of Water – Harmony Song Heart Response


♥ I invite you to take a journey with me into the consciousness of water, and that of the elements that make up all form on Earth.  Doing so is the golden pathway of co-creating Heaven on Earth. ♥

… Winter was ending and spring was just beginning to whisper her presence in our ears the day that this miracle was gifted to me, and through me, to you. My wolfdog companion Ishnahnay and friends were walking the snow covered shore of Castle Lake in Mount Shasta, embracing the amazing beauty that we always found there.

When I am in nature, I am often inspired to sing what comes from my heart as a blessing of gratitude to the nature spirits.  This day was one of those magical days. What came from me was a gratitude song of the beauty before us and the harmony in which we were choosing to embrace our nature family.

Hearing the Voices of Nature

Hearing the voice of nature …. It is in the listening and the hearing our true communication is destined to be received; whether between two humans or between humans and other species. Now in this time of forming heaven and earth into physical manifestation, many new templates are being called for formation. Templates of divine healing, divine technology, and communication are three of the many.
