I am a Virgo – an Earth sign- and for me being connected to Mother Earth is vital for my well-being. I find that if I spend too much time in my head either because I am being creative or because of meditation or guide work then I become completely out of balance and my physical body suffers.
I believe everything is energy and that we all vibrate at frequencies and that we need to learn to bring those frequencies to levels that aid us in our life. Making sure that I am connected to the Earth is how I maintain and regulate my energy and frequencies.
I do this in many ways, but today I am writing about some easy ways to establish this link to Mother Earth.
The Earth is our planet and it is our job to protect her; and in my opinion we are doing a lousy job of this; I send out love and healing energy to Gaia during meditations and also daily when I am out walking. I believe by sending that energy out she is receiving it and I like to think it gives her a boost. Now if we multiplied that effect by 100’s or 1000’s I think we would be rewarded by the rejuvenation of earth.
I go outside most evenings and bond with the moon and the stars . I find that star gazing helps calm my mind and allows me to see that I am part of a large interconnected galaxy. I thank the moon and the stars for the energy they are responsible for and feel the connection of shared energy beings.
I like to garden. I find that it is soothing for me to have my hands in the earth, it helps me find focus if I am scattered and feeds my soul. I believe that by planting trees and shrubs and flowers and vegetables that I am nourishing Gaia and aiding the flow of energy that enables the universe to function! Laughing here at that but really I do think that the connection on such a basic level, hands in the earth has ramifications we do not fully realise.
And then we have water! Having a connection with earth means that I also need to have enough water within my body -15 glasses a day – to having fountains in my home, and in a ideal Debra’s world swimming in the ocean and riding the waves.
Having water within and around me helps me maintain a healthy body but also spiritually helps me with my connection to my planet and to life in general. I love floating on a gentle current feeling the salt water supporting my body and stilling my mind as I become one with the ocean.
Find your connection and benefit from knowing you are giving back as much as you are receiving from that connection with Gaia and our wonderful planet Earth.
