Spending time in nature is immensely healing. When we go to natural places, our body regulates and our earthy human body cycles kick in, helping us release stress. We then remember who we are and what we are here to do.
Tending the natural earth whether through gardening or loving mindfulness, we actually heal our own inner wild selves.
Here are 8 ways to receive healing from nature TODAY:
1. Take a walk outside. 2. Breathe very deeply into a flower or local bush for 3 minutes. Rub the leaves or petals with your fingers to free the aroma. 3. Put on some gloves and pick up trash outside on your next break. 4. Pour water as an offering into the earth. 5. Go to your favorite nature spot and give thanks out loud for all of the life moments it has seen you through. 6. Sit on your porch and run Reiki on yourself in the sunshine. 7. Lay down on the ground. Yep, that’s it, for as long or short as you’d like. 8. Hug a tree with both arms and a big smile.
