In the spiritual path we often speak of surrendering and of letting go. For those of us who have walked on the path of plant medicines or any spiritual paths you have come up to this 'cross road'. I can't count the number of times I have been in ceremony and deep within have known that I need to Let Go.... needed to surrender... needed to trust or have faith but....
In those moments I have often turned the other way, or have often been blinded by old doubts or fears, or have often not had the right tools, but this starts to shift for us all. We are all carbon that are slowly shifting into diamonds. This is a very beautiful process but it is up to our hearts how long we want to take.
Surrendering can be very scary. It feels like we are letting go into nothingness or emptiness or spaciousness - Where are we going to land, whose hand will hold us? Well now think about when you where a child and you were scared and your mother held you? How did that feel - you felt safe no? Now when those moments come again in ceremony, on the meditation cushion, in a crisis in life remember who is there to hold you ...... Mother Earth Imagine how supported and loved you felt by you mother or another caring figure and now imagine how it feels to be held by Mother Earth.
Shes is the one that created us all and sustains us all. With our wars and with our marches of peace, with our love making and with our hatred - she without judgements holds us all. Let her hold you and remind yourself that she will always be there to catch you and there is nothing to worry about!
In The Nature Within Retreats we connect deeply with the Mother Earth to remember the essential truth of our lives. To remember that the only true frequency in this life is LOVE. If that is all there is then any other way we live is an illusion so let us will ourselves back to this simple truth. We would love to walk hand and hand with you back to this Origin!
When will we put this all into action? Well we are running a retreat during Xmas this year! Can you think of any better way to spend this Holiday season? Instead of buying presents lets come together in PRESENCE. Presence with Mother Nature, Presence with the Great Spirit, with the Plant and Animals, with a family of friends whose hearts are committed to awakening in this lifetime and promote the easing of suffering for all.
Join us this Holiday season to bring PRESENCE to the entire planet.
We love you all
Thank you Mother Earth for always holding us even when we have forgotten you.
