As I drove home from the studio the other day, it occurred to me that I was seeing at the colours associated with our chakras in nature. In a line of trees, with the grass, blue sky and white clouds with a hint of purple/light indigo, there was a gorgeous line of trees, brightly displaying their leaves in shades of red, orange and yellow. I stopped and took a long look, feeling grounded and connected, hearing the birds in the background.
As I drove in to work a couple of days later, the rising sun greeted me in an amazing display over a period of about an hour and again, the sight was mesmerizing. I had to drive to the water to get the final picture and the scene just calmed me and soothed my soul.
We take the Earth for granted, but she gives us so much, in so many ways. She acts as our spaceship through the Solar System, giving us air, food and water for our physical bodies, but also provides us sustenance for our energetic bodies, our soul through displays such as these. The wonder and mystery of it all amazes me and when I think of the complexity of the relationship we share with the Earth and the universe, I am humbled by the vastness of it all.
In the busyness of life, take a moment and look around you. Walk through the woods or by a brook. Spend some time in your yard, looking up at the stars at night. We are part of a vast network, taken care of and protected by the Earth.
