I love the cool nights we have been experiencing. Windows open, waking up to the sound of crickets, the cool air settled at your feet; by midday, the sun strong and ready to fill you with its warmth. It is a reminder that the seasons are soon changing, to enjoy the still summery temperatures of end of August, before we begin to reach for a sweater when heading out the door.
The earth grounds us. Being in nature heals us. Experiencing the changes, the cyclical transformation of the seasons; to be able to enjoy and absorb the full colours and scents of each, that is tied to our spirit.
Victoria Erickson says this about nature;
“Don’t dismiss the elements. Water soothes and heals. Air refreshes and revives. Earth grounds and holds. Fire is a burning reminder of our own will and creative power. Breathe them in. Swallow their spells. There’s a certain sweet comfort in knowing that you belong to them all.” – Victoria Erickson
The earth grounds us. Using nature as one of our daily anchors allows us to also feel the inherent peace that it brings; good for the soul, soothing to the heart.
