Where do you find a connection with the Earth that speaks to you? Every inch of Mother Earth is a sacred place, and there is a connection spot for every one of us, no matter where we are physically located. However, we have to be in communion with her to experience a connection. When we are out of sync with our Mother Earth, our energy connection will be poor. Native American traditions teach that Mother Earth is a living being and that when a human being goes to a power spot on the earth, the attention of Mother Earth is directed there and energy begins to flow because our bodies, like the earth, are electromagnetic. Whenever a human being seeks an Earth connection, Mother Earth is there to provide solace.
Thich Nhat Hanh expresses these thoughts so beautifully by telling us that when we walk like we are rushing, we print anxiety and sorrow on the earth. We have to walk in a way that we only print peace and serenity on the earth. Be aware of the contact between your feet and the earth. “Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet.” When we can achieve that type of connection, we become fully present in the now and know that our empowerment is fully represented by unconditionally loving everything that we are in that moment. This becomes our power place, our inner connection where each one of us comes to a place of awareness. Mother Earth provides us with the safety and security to express our authentic selves and when we can reconnect to the power place, we find once again what has always existed within us.
In these present times of chaos, hatred towards mankind and our Mother Earth, wouldn’t it be a good idea for all to reconnect to our authentic loving selves and know that we are enough just as we stand? I encourage all of us not to harbor any hatred toward our fellow-man, especially those we think are ‘evil’ or different from us, but rather to take some time to reconnect with our spiritual side and Mother Earth, giving thanks for what we have right now, all the while basking in her unconditional love and strength. We needn’t wage war on anyone or anything; we simply need to know that we are enough. Mother Earth is waiting for you to connect to all that you are; you are responsible for your own personal empowerment.
The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper. ~ W.B. Yeats
