||9||: Meditate in Nature

Take a moment to sit up with an elegant posture, you divine Queen.

Take a regal moment to inhale deeply and exhale slowly — you have the time now to observe the world, to be in the world and pull yourself away for just a moment.

If we were children, and if your inner child still roams free, all we have to do is close our eyes and imagine that we are safe and the outdoors/indoors is our playground.

I love the outdoors. I’m going where all the beautiful colors are natural and alive, growing out the soil. I’m traveling in my mind to a place where the sun is beaming and the breeze is generous. Whatever you deem your space of serenity, take your mind there, what your nature is. You can meditate in nature, fully clothed in spandex and hiking boots or sandals, you can be naked observing yourself in front of a mirror in your room, you can be walking instead of driving — walking to places that are fun, lively and sharing the day with the best company.

Take a moment to sit up with an elegant posture, you divine Queen.

Take a regal moment to inhale deeply and exhale slowly — you have the time now to observe the world, to be in the world and pull yourself away for just a moment.

Take just a few minutes to slowly exhale and release all the air, and all the tension. Inhale again and imagine you’re packing away all the weight, all your concerns, all your debt, and all things that are out of your control. When I inhale I’m taking all of my breath, it feels slightly claustrophobic, still I’m in control. Now I just can’t wait to finally release, and so I do, with a slow yet climactic exhale, letting go of everything I carry with me, the weight of the world, I release it with no intention of seeking its location.

To experience that, during the week focus and dedication to self. To experience release and relief from meditation means, I am taking care of myself, I am creating a habit to bring ease to my tired body and wandering mind.

I do my best to achieve this during the week, with prayer, affirmations, meditations, hot showers. I keep the Sabbath, a happy and holy day of rest, a day that no man can touch, a gift to enjoy without work.

One of my favorite places to go to feel that overwhelming peace is with God in nature, the Creator of this Universe, and with free flowing uncensored conversations with myself and God. It’s important to make an appointment with yourself and check in to see how you feel.

Take a moment and bend low to the ground, and look at it all from an ants view. Look at the roots, stems, bulbs that tower through the ground like trees. Imagine how we look, like dust on the ground from the plane or above the clouds.

I’ve felt no greater love, than the peace and calmness of the trees reacting in a rhythmic song as the wind blows and my hair raise at attention. The call of the outdoors, tells me, slow down and take it all in. It’s best to listen, and answer the call, only if you choose.

Light and love,

What is your method to wind down and relax? Where do you go to find peace and reflect?
