I have a blissful memory from childhood where I am barefoot in nature, surrounded by green birch trees, moss, walking in the grass between the birch towards the stream, overlooking lava field and a river. I was in my power place, a place that has grown to be my favorite place on earth, a sanctuary of natural beauty and wonder, a little summer cottage in the country. I was playing with my imagination, being native Indian, called Indiana, building my shelter on the hill out of wood and branches. I felt playful, balanced and happy.
I have had the privilege to go there every summer of my childhood and also my adult years, taking my own family for a nature retreat.
After stressful period in work and life, I went there last week and within days I was in my natural state of being-ness and harmony. I took off my shoes and socks and started to feel nature, both on a slippery stones on the lake´s shore, in the wood, climbing the rocky hill and just take in the beauty. I guided the children to find my old shelter and we rebuilt it a bit, and they changed their name and became knight and princess in wonderland. Life is a magical place of wonder and joy. Soon we all felt it; nature, creativity, imagination, playing, laughing, finding sticks and feathers, and magic stones. I was back home, back into alignment with nature and myself, oh joy it felt so good.
This is our natural state, childlike state of wonder and joy, feeling in alignment with the environment and also with our inner nature. Here imagination and creativity is activated, alive and vibrant like nature itself. If we could just follow this wisdom from childhood and tune back into it, we would feel happier, lighter, more balanced beings.
I felt I was being fine tuned to my natural vibration, as if I was a radio station that hadn´t been tuned on the right channel. It was like a click to alignment, and the feeling of wonder and happiness took over.
We are so overloaded in today society with external stimuli and stress. We forget our natural state of being, like we hopefully all felt in childhood. We are natural-born creative beings, full of imagination, joy and curiosity. In this state we can feel we are the co-creators in our lives. We can easily manifest our intentions and dreams. We can rebuild and remake and create a new…
In this reawakened state of alignment I listened deeper to my intuition and I felt I could talk to nature and be a part of it. I asked for signs and got answered. I prayed and wished for something and it manifested instantly. I was in awe. I asked for swan´s feathers and even a swan´s wing for my shamanic ceremonies and two feathers floated to the shore and the day after I walked upon a dead swan, a give-away. I was in magic wonderland, and it reminded me on that when we are in alignment with our inner nature we can create and manifest! If you wish for something and want to manifest it you have to be in this natural state of being, and we can all tune in.
I also felt how I was tapping into source of creativity, ideas started to flow; I painted in nature with the elements, made a prayer stick and created a power tool made out of branch.
Nature gives us a gift of balance and creativity. Mother earth heals and revitalizes. After time in nature we start to feel within as we are regarding outside ourselves. We tap into the blossoming creativity that is all around us and it works its magic through us if we let it. We start to notice the beauty around us and within us. We follow the guidance from signs and symbols in nature, the wild intuition ignites a hidden gifts and language we otherwise would not notice. We start to be a part of the whole web of life, not isolated and alone, but a part of its weaving. We become co-creators!
Lets take a step towards the circle of magic and dream our dreams into reality, that is our destiny. We just have to tune in and find the alignment.
We see beauty, we become beautiful
We see creativity, we become creative
We see balance, we become balanced
We see wonder, we become wonderful
We see soul, we become soulful
We see abundance, we become abundant.
We are what we regard, and what we think and feel; our inner world reflects our outer world and vice versa.
I hope you get the change to surround yourself with beauty in nature and start to acknowledge the beauty and creativity that lives within you. Sometimes we need to fine tune to our channel to find our unique tone.
