“By tuning into the earth, knowing her heart as our own and awakening to nature’s pulses, we resonate with forces which push us now to evolve and grow. The time is ripe to expose our own latent talents, and so, rouse confidence to find our way through changing times.”
Lyn Roberts, Speaking With Nature
“Nature has a vitality the feeds our life force. Earth provides a powerful grounding rod and energizer of your soul’s expression in your body.
I invite you to awaken a sense of being at home on the earth and cultivate earth spirit connection. Such practices calm the thinking mind. You use all your senses. Every cell of your body pulses with vibratory information that is vaster than intellect and logic.
And you may discover that your innate capacity of direct knowing comes to life.
What might happen in your life if you began listening to the voice of your soul that whispers on the wind, radiates from the stars, signals from within your own body, or in an eagle dream calling you to see the bigger picture of who you really are.”
