It’s quite a simple concept, but many of us still lack the much-needed time spent in the great outdoors. Daily life in any modern society keeps many people indoors and tied to electronic devices. While this is not all bad, it is important to break from these modern patterns and restore our inner elemental qualities through contact with Mother Nature.
When going about this daily spiritual practice, it is of great importance to understand that the human body, as with all things in creation, is a complex composition of elemental properties. Realizing that the richest spiritual and physical nutrition comes from stimulating ones inner elements through contact with nature is fundamental. Today, it is all too easy to be a technology addict, but I challenge you to become a nature addict. Feel the air, connect with the Earth, touch the waters, meditate to the flame, and let your body tingle with Sprit as you breath into each of these moments!
It’s an undeniable reality that we are more in tune with our environment when outdoors. When was the last time you spent time outdoors and away from technology?
How good did it feel to breath in the vastness of nature? Do not under estimate the spiritual power of spending focused time outdoors. You owe it to yourself, not only to pause from your synthetic environments, but also to get outdoors and spend time meditating to nurture your body and spirit.
I encourage you to spend time in nature with loved ones as well, pausing to take time in meditative focus together. Even if you live in a thriving metropolis, walk, bike, or drive to the nearest city park and enjoy the best of mother nature's hidden gifts, for they are always there for us to connect with and evolve from.
Affirmation “ I am the Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Spirit. I find healing and nourishment in body and spirit through nature.”
