and she’s right there to teach us
When we don't follow her blueprint, life can get messy.
You might get weeds in your garden. If you let that shit go and then say goodbye to your fruit.
Then you have to rip it ALL out, regenerate the soil, plant new seeds and put in all the work to grow them – properly this time. I just described my own rock bottom there, but in weirdly-apt horticultural terms.
When you observe how perfectly Mamma Gaia does it, you’ll become her best friend and student. Then ever-so-slowly, you’ll align with her frequency and you’ll begin to synch with the seasons.
When you learn to synch with the seasons, nature will show you how to get the GOOD FRUIT.
These ‘seeds’, are your new hobbies and skills. Your new relationships. The beginning of self-love. The process of healing.
Your seeds are EVERYTHING that you’re choosing to grow, from tiny infant stages.
Your mindful drawing practice begins as a seed, and it’s up to you to give it all the right elements it needs to grow bigger every day. Or it just won’t grow, then…no fruit.
When you synch with the seasons, summer will teach you that there will be periods of rapid, accelerated growth.
Autumn is a time of slowing down after periods of intense activity. It's the time of harvest.
Gradually, the focus is shifting inwards.
Winter is a time of inner work, reflection. It’s a time of darkness. A celebration of the mysteries of the night.
As I touched on earlier, you don’t need to synch with the seasons exactly when Mother Nature does her stuff. I partially do – I love doing my deepest inner work in winter. But I also flick the switch on my own seasons, when and as required.
And when you peer deeper, there is MORE...
Yet many of us fear change, because we fear the unknown, when what we should be fearing, is staying still – never growing, stagnating. We can never expand beyond what we currently are, without being bold enough to leap out into the unknown.
Nature gives us delicious gifts for the soul.
You don't just see Mother Nature - you are plugged into her.
There is no separation where she begins and you end, because she is you. Your energies are intertwined.
Something else rather beautiful kicks in when you align your frequency with Mother Nature: You begin to honour her and thank her. When you go for a walk, you pick up rubbish that others leave because you want to clean her and look after her.
You go out of your way to protect her, and you walk lightly on her. You don’t take from her and you don’t harm her.
