Green Earth Healing
Summer is green¸ at least it is in Michigan. It is a soothing, comforting and healing green. This green is from the Earth Mother. It is a gift. Every morning I walk. I walk in the woods together with the green of the Mother. It brings peace and calm to the chaotic world. It heals. She heals.
Most people are familiar with the chakras, the energy systems that align our body. The heart chakra is represented by the color green. This is not a coincidence that our heart energy and the color of our Earth Mother are green. Green is also the color of healing.
Healing begins naturally at the heart with our connection to Earth Mother.
In the day of electronic devices, we are losing touch with our natural alignment with the Earth and our ability to heal from the heart. We lose touch with “green”. As a kid I lived outside. I played in trees, in the woods, in corn fields and by streams. Kids today because of safety issues and distractions no longer have the gifts of nature. The trees, animals, plants, stones, sticks and leaves were my friends. I have to beg or force my own children to leave the comforts of home and venture outside, even though we live in a safe quiet neighborhood filled with woods, trails, ponds and creeks.
For our personal health, the health of all creatures and the planet we need to reconnect with our Earth Mother. The lessons learned and the gifts received are beyond abundant. It’s time to step away from the electronic distractions and the chemical substances and step into nature. By loving, appreciating and preserving Her we secure our own future. We will not only heal our hearts, minds and body we will heal our planet and all the inhabitants. Step into the color green whether in your minds-eye or outside in your environment and experience, “green earth healing”.
