༄ Nature and Gratitude ༄

Hand painted wood offering to the trees by Apostolia

I think that I shall never see 
A poem lovely as a tree. 
A tree that looks at God all day, 
And lifts her leafy arms to pray; 
Poems are made by fools like me, 
But only God can make a tree.

How do we make decisions?

I used to sit and think a lot using my mind -that is so capable of making all kinds of stories, possibilities, and assumptions - and I was never happy with my decisions. Or better saying I was never in peace with my decisions.

Life brought me some very difficult moments that became my most valuable lessons and led me in deep connection with my breath, my heart, unity, and universal love so my mind started interfering less and less with judgments that were completely unnecessary to live a meaningful everyday life.

I started practicing meditation in Nature every time I had to take an important decision, sitting still, breathing, connecting with the trees or the clouds, the sun, the moon, a little flower, a bird, emptying my mind and entering the frequency of Love.

I live in the city but thanks to the creator there are sources of comforting elements of nature everywhere. We just need to acknowledge them.

This practice not only comforted me but also gave me a whole new perspective on what are my true needs, what I really want to be a sweet loving and compassionate human being. 

I threw away many mindsets (that were not mine anyway) and I became lighter, more creative and courageous on crucial decision making.

I felt gratitude coming like a powerful stream of light inside me and an inevitable need to express my gratitude in any way I can, to Nature. Gradually I started expressing gratitude to Humans and especially to Humans I have love relationships (that's the hardest one!)

So September's newsletter is devoted to a big Thank you to the Trees, these amazing beings that supported me in August and gave me precious insights.

Take some time this month to connect with a Tree in your neighborhood and make some new decisions on how you dream your self.  Sit next to it, listen, see, smell, breathe. It will speak to you in unseen, unheard ways that can bring happiness and peace to your soul. Thank your self for taking the time to be with your self. And thank the Tree for the unconditional coexistence or just leave a creative expression of your loving self!

Love & Light to you all.
