I have studied metaphysics and earth spirituality for over 20 years. I am a third-level Reiki master and give Norse Rune readings using the Elder Futhark Runes. I teach Celtic-based earth centered spirituality out of my studio, Grove of the Hawk, and have organized and led Celtic celebrations and rituals.
Have you ever talked with a tree, or plant? Have you ever really listened to what nature is saying? She talks to us every day if we just have ears to hear. It all comes with tuning in, becoming aware and trusting what comes.
One thing I have the students in my classes do is to find a place in nature they feel comfortable in—it could be a park, by a creek or river, or just in their own backyards. After they've found such a place, go out at the same time every day for a week and just observe and listen for 30 to 60 minutes. Then write down everything they saw, heard, and felt while there. By the third or fourth day their perception starts to change, they open up more—get more in tune. That's the first step...
My advice to those who really want to 'see' and understand earth spirituality would be to go out and listen with your heart. Extend your awareness and really get a good dose of nature. Open up to the earth, our mother, and all the wisdom she is so willing to share. For you'll hear her in the breath of the wind, in every drop of dew that falls to the ground, in the tiny sprouts of miners' lettuce and elder buds. And through the old gods of our ancestors, who are still there, woven into the natural landscape, waiting for us to acknowledge them. You just have to take the time to listen, and nature is their voice, the earth their power. Whether we've forgotten them or not they call to us, admonishing us to remember where truth and beauty lie. It lies on the path of nature.
In my book, Animal Omens I have illustrated the fact that all of creation is sacred and has worth. I hope that's apparent when reading it, for it is the best evidence I have of how lucky we all are to live here.
I share my deep reverence and gratitude for this big round ball in space that we all call Planet Earth. And may we always seek to find our love and peace here.
