More ways to navigate the world as an empathic person.
Puttering in the garden.
I’ve never really been able, or more likely, chosen, to sustain a vigorous aerobic exercise routine, like running or biking miles each day. We each have to know what works for us to maintain our health – physical, mental emotional and spiritual. Most of my life that had meant long hikes in wilderness areas. Now, as I (try to-lol) age gracefully, I realize that long hikes are not as enjoyable and neighborhood walks are fine. I can appreciate the details of where I live, meet my neighbors and relax without having to drive somewhere. Walking a mile or two each day is a baseline I try to follow and it feels good to do so.
Where I really shine is in the Garden.
When the world of people and culture and expectations and missed opportunities collide with what feels best in the present, sitting in a garden with green growing things can be the answer we need to relax and refresh and center again.
Relationship with the plant world is something we each can define on our own, find what that means for us individually and to encourage healing in our world. We can do this by exploring and getting to know the plants that grow in our backyards and on our walks. Learning in books about them is a start. Sitting with them and feeling their green freshness and the enthusiasm of blooming flowers is vital, and we learn on a whole different level about them when we sit with them. How are we refreshed after this action?
In the city or the country, there will always be green beings.
Beauty refreshes the Soul.
Gentle movement refreshes the body. Focusing on the heart, and what nourishes a happy heart, enriches our life every moment, and keeps us on the path to continued health.
Communicating with plant worlds compliments and enhances my ability to communicate with animals. It is one way to nurture heart energy and feel more connected to the Pulse of Life.
What are the ways that you connect with your heart and your inner soul, and how do you express that in the world?
