I had the supreme honor of speaking with a phenomenal group of women yesterday, from editors, to designers, professional surfers, screenwriters, film makers and more, all creatives, tapped in, tuned in, and bringing forth incredible work into this world. A gift always to bring it back to the Earth. To the incredible beauty, power, inspiration and balancing energy available for us to source from both physically, through experience, or mentally, in revisiting places of Nature that have held us in meditation and journeying. When asked, each person could share a spot in Nature, or an experience they had which opened or affected them profoundly. And if I was to put this question to you this morning, I am sure you too could recall not only one, but many, that perhaps inspire awe, comfort, healing, awakening. Moments where you can’t help but acknowledge the vastness of being, and the presence of divinity in whatever form you believe. And so I offered something that has guided me so profoundly upon my journey and also contributes to my deep desire to stand as a protector and steward of this Earth: “Gather sacred spaces.” Meaning- seek out the natural world with a sense of wonder and curiosity. Introduce yourself to these environs and do not take immersion for granted. Ask permission to enter their waves, riverbeds, mountain trails, fields, etc. Make an offering in gratitude before and after your unfolding to maintain balance and reciprocity, perhaps through silent intention or song, the giving of seed, tobacco, or cornmeal, or through a creation of beauty, like a mandala or small grouping of Earth elements. For these are places that will feed you deeply, that will open and share so abundantly when we honor their sentience and right to be respected and held in reverence properly. The forests will speak to you. The ocean cleanse your spirit in her waves. The birds, carry messages. The trees, anchor your becoming. The beings, teach the path of ego free humility. We, Humanity, are but a thread in this web of life, and yet we act as conquers, verses seeing our relation to all things as a most wondrous family.
