Getting Messages From Nature
Nature symbols are present throughout all of the realms of nature. Some are obvious while others are much more subtle, requiring your full attention and effort to understand. We can find much deeper meanings concealed beneath the surface, as long as we take the necessary time.
When we put ourselves in the right frame of mind, we allow ourselves to be receptive of their generous sharing. These energies are present in every aspect of our daily lives. Maybe this is why they are often taken for granted.
Nature is the most miraculous of networks. All of life flows through it with ease and grace, giving us opportunities to jump on board for the ride. Information and message make themselves known to us via channels flowing through this network, as long as we tune in to them. Everything is interconnected, including us humans and our emotions. Even though we sometimes have polluted thoughts, nature is pure and serves to clean our minds out. But how can we access these cleansing messages?
Generous Mother Nature will provide us with our physical and spiritual nourishment when we meet her terms. Our energies must be attuned to hers, and we must be prepared to put forth the effort, practice, and listen clearly. Becoming attuned with nature and receiving her gracious messages requires a commitment. You must be willing to become invested and stick to it.
How To Connect With Nature Symbols
The most basic of ways of connecting with nature symbols are simple. Make time for going outside alone, go for a quiet walk in the woods or fields (dependent upon where you live), and interact with the animals that you can. This can range from observing them to touching them or even playing more with your domestic pets. Getting involved in nature is the fundamental step that one must make to get in touch with their surroundings. How do you expect to gain knowledge and wisdom from nature if you sit inside all day? You can’t. Make a purposeful and wholesome effort, and you will be on your way.
Another helpful tip for hearing the messages that nature is speaking to you is again a simple one: invest in quiet. Nature is tranquil. We can even detect peaceful and harmonious notes during seemingly wrathful storms. In general, nature is soft, compassionate, and beautiful. This is the state of mind that we each must be in if we want to truly connect with nature and its elements. We must mimic the quiet tranquility of nature.
Remember, we must approach Mother Nature on her own terms. For some people, this will come naturally with their personality type, but for others, a conscious effort must be put forth. Quietness can be achieved through calm meditation, and unadulterated focus.
Although there are certainly many ways to form a relationship with nature, these tips are a sure-fire way of getting a head start. A final tip speaks to the reciprocal nature of this relationship: you must give back. Mother Nature does not like being taken for granted, especially when she is willingly providing generous gifts. Thank her for her generosity- it’s only common courtesy, after all. Recycle, do not litter, pick up someone else’s litter, allow trees and flowers to bloom, etc.. These do not need to be major actions, for ever little bit is important. It is the sincere effort and meaningful gesture that counts.
