We are all one with Earth.  Day 25 is about connecting with Earth and allowing the forces within you to be energized by the currents from the Earth, weather its from the soil, a tree, the oceans or the winds that pass by your face.  Taking time to observe nature is always a worthwhile way to spend your time.  Even just visualizing aspects of the outside world can calm and relax your soul.

Inspirational site...

We live on a lake and I can barely express the joy, as its truly overwhelmingly wonderful, that I receive when I take the time to launch one of my little kayaks, with me balancing inside, out into the watery world just steps from my house.    When I was still working at the hedge fund, I made a decision to take a kayak out everyday after work, barring any potential lightning.  This small gesture saved my soul from sinking into the depths of despair.  Even if I only spent a few minutes floating and rowing I felt invigorated and recharged.  I challenge you to find a way to recharge with the Earth.  Don’t forget, I would love to hear all about it!  ~Blessings, Lisa

Earth: Day 25 – Awakening the Natural Forces Within You

We live in a rhythmic universe. Every part of nature has a unique language and rhythm of its own—every flower, bird, and tree has its own rhythmic language, which together create the underlying context that weaves all life together. We are constantly surrounded by these rhythms of energy. And if you take a moment to become very still, you can feel these rhythms of the natural world inside of you. It is immensely valuable to awaken and listen to the natural forces within you. Are your own internal rhythms in alignment with the natural rhythms of the world?

Affirmation for the Day: I am in harmony with the natural rhythm of life.

Today: Be aware of the rhythms of nature in all its forms around you. From the rising and setting sun, to the lengthening of shadows during the day, to the movement of animals and insects, and the changing weather patterns. Be aware of your own internal rhythms. Notice if they seem to be in alignment with the natural rhythms of nature.

Level 1: Replenished by Nature

As nature is disappearing around us, we are losing vast tracts of the wilderness inside of ourselves as well. It’s as if the fertile soil of the soul is being gradually depleted. Everyday as we lose part of our natural outer heritage, our inner heritage diminishes as well.

One of the fastest ways to replenish the reserves of the soul is to spend time in nature. The remarkable thing about the human brain is that research has shown that even just visualizing nature can produce some of the same positive biochemical and psychological results as actually spending time in nature.

Today, take 15 minutes to close your eyes and imagine yourself in a beautiful, refreshing place in nature. Make it as real as you can and imagine yourself really being there. You might imagine a mountain meadow, a sparkling seashore, an alpine lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains, or somewhere else. (This is an excellent exercise to do periodically during the day. Even a few seconds of visualizing yourself in nature can rejuvenate you.)
