I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in tune once more. ~ John Burroughs
We all experience times in our life when everything seems to be in chaos - work, home, family, friends and even how we relate to our self. When I'm felling "off" and can't quite put my finger on what I need - I find going to a park or being near water really helps me to find my "ista" the calmness that lives within (us all).
One of my favourite parks in Toronto is High Park ... (think of it as a smaller version of Central Park - for my American friends). Each visit I discover something new ... look at what I discovered on this visit!!!
For long time readers of HHL - you will recall 2006 was when my life as I knew it changed. When I saw this I knew there was a reason why this tree "jumped out at me" (I've been by the trail where it is many times on visits to the park in the past few years and honestly had not noticed it) this particular day of feeling out of sorts - as I approached and touched the tree - a calmness was instant. As I leaned against the tree, connecting with the energy of the earth around it and the tree itself ... I meditated ... and it took me back to that day that everything changed ... and I was reminded how far I have come and that my purpose is to help others too! In case I had doubts about the message I had received during my meditation ... when I saw Colin's signature and the year , as I walked away ... I knew the angels and universe - were making sure I heard!!
When was the last time you took the time to connect with nature? It can be as simple as sitting in your back yard - tending to your garden; on your balcony tending to the flower pots; a walk through your local park; a stroll along the water front or a hike in nature - forest. If you are going through a challenging time, or feeling anxious, depressed - I encourage you to TAKE time to connect with nature - it will help clear your thoughts and bring a sense of tranquility!
