Blessings for the Earth

Walking into the woods, I find forgiveness. I find my soul awakened by the dew on the fresh grass, by the crispness in the air, by the smell of fallen decayed leaves all intermingled with the sweet smell of pine. The Earth is caressing my feet, and I wish peace for both Mother Earth and my soul. It strikes me that we have both been put through some major testing, and perhaps she far more than me. I ache for what we have done to her, all of us in one-way or another who have shone disrespect. I practice Ho’oponopono for her healing, as well as my own.

She gives us so much bounty, and yet we are traders of her great gifts by exploiting them for our own material gain.  She simply wished we would enjoy the bounty, take care of her and tread lightly. Some understand her wishes; some like me through time and space begin to commune with her. When we can start to feel this connection is when the real healing of both can begin.

Today I urge you to take a walk in nature, and really witness all that is born. Take each step as if you are kissing the Earth (Thich Nhat Hanh) and really feel this, let it sink deeply into your soul. Ask for her forgiveness, forgive yourself and others that you may have hurt, practice Ho’oponopono in its simplest form: I love you; I am sorry; please forgive me; and thank you. Practice this simple blessing for the Earth, for yourself and others. Release it all, and step back allowing the universe the gift of its great healing powers.

  1. Your post was a beautiful start to my day. Ho’oponopono is a special prayer I often forget to say. Thankyou for the reminder to connect my feet and my soul with Mother Earth, and thank her once again, for the gift she is to us all. Many blessings.

    This is so beautiful. It reminds me of one of the prayers, which we chant, after we wake up and before we put our feet on the ground, where we thank her for her giving nature and seek her forgivance for treading on her. Loved this post

  6. What a beautiful post! There is something of nature which can be so restorative to our spirit if we but allow it. I love the idea of connecting our feet to the earth and combining it with the practice and prayer of forgiveness.

    Agree with this so much. I’m a sinner, too. I wish I could add, but you said it all.
