Daily Angel Oracle card, from the Universal Wisdom Oracle Card deck, by Toni Carmine Salerno: Dreaming Landscape
Dreaming Landscape: Nature is magic, a wondrous creation forever changing. You have picked this card today to help you remember the importance of spending time in Nature and connecting with its healing qualities.
Allow the sunlight and breeze to caress your face. Observe the sense of timelessness that is felt when surrounded by Nature, all in perfect order, all in perfect union. Spend some time alone and allow your mind to be cleared of all thoughts and concerns. Sit in silence and listen to the breeze, feel the trees sway, hear the birds sing and feel the warmth of the sun. Perhaps you have lost your perspective on life, forgotten what is truly important.
Remember, you take nothing but your should with you when you pass from this world, so pay attention to your soul – nurture it, allow yourself to dream and be filled with the magic and healing energy of Nature and the Universe.”*
Connecting to nature, as vital as it is sometimes gets pushed to the back burner, especially during torrential rain storms like we have been experiencing here on the wet West Coast of Canada for the last week or so! But, to be honest, we all know that isn’t really an excuse to lock ourselves indoors. I notice it most with my kids, how cranky they get when they have been inside too much, and by too much I’m talking hours here, not days or god forbid weeks!! The funny thing is that it’s almost automatic for us to keep the kids in so they don’t get cold and wet and muddy, but left to their own devices, they have a blast no matter what the weather! Mind you it’s not freezing yet, just a little chilly and wet, wet…. WET!! They had the best time sliding back and forth on the trampoline the other day, hours of entertainment and I just put them in a warm bath after. Nothing like a little fresh air to get them back on track, all rosy-cheeked and boisterous, getting along fantastically well, giggling and laughing. Whereas, only an hour before that they had been fighting over the tiniest, most insignificant looking bits of Lego!
Adults should do themselves the same favour, get some fresh air when you are feeling stressed, down or low energy. Bundle up if you need to, or grab an umbrella or a jacket and get out there! I think that is one of the best things about having a dog, it forces you outdoors at least twice a day to get your fix of air and exercise and look at all the extra benefits it provides! Body, mind and spirit, it’s all tied together. Your body needs the O2 and negative ions, your mind needs a break from screens and bills and problems, your soul and spirit needs that Divine connection to mother Earth!
So get out there, breathe, gaze up at the sky, use all your senses to appreciate this incredibly beautiful planet we are blessed to live on… and let your soul soar!
