I have spent the past month traveling by car from the East Coast of the USA to the desert lands I love in the Southwest. When I go to certain sacred places in New Mexico I connect with the spirits of the land and waters and enter a high vibrational state of being. I hike alone and sit in nature. Doing this yearly solo retreat empowers me to leave the world as I know it behind, and feeds my soul completely. Going into a meditative alignment with nature is crucial for me, and I wish all people would make the intention to enter a similar sacred journey. Our elder ancestors knew the power of vision quests, being alone in the elements. We have forgotten so much in the name of progress.
For me, however, going to a high vibrational spiritual center that I enter is so completely opposite from the busy , chaotic world that we each live in. It always takes me a while to integrate back into my home environment. I have a feeling of sadness and emptiness for the first few days of my return. I think this feeling comes from my soul remembering its true nature when I am not distracted by the chaotic world that our planet has become.
Once I feel grounded and balanced again I am fed new inspirations from the places I have visited. I think spiritual awakenings are like this or at least in my experiences they are!
Recently a wise friend was discussing with me the duality nature that human beings live out of. She suggested bringing the magical transformative Power of where I have been into the geographic location of where I live. I actually had never considered this possibility for like most of you, I live a majority of my existence in duality , separating myself from the spiritual world in the realm I reside within on a daily basis.
As I have begun integrating the high vibrational spiritual feelings and experiences with my home base environment I have felt more at ease. I am starting to feel my heart smiling into my soul as I continue in the moment making the intention to not be in two places at once, but to actually live in the high vibrational environment as I stay present in my neighborhood where I reside!
Learning to listen to the space between our heartbeats as we incorporate the teachings of nature and the planet could be as important and crucial as slowing down to connect with each breath we take! That being said, I think I will start adding those two active disciplines into my daily life.
Making the intention to first accept my positive side with my dark shadowy side then adding new disciplines I find that really work not only help me to be an improved version of myself but also may mirror back to the reflection of each of you that I see. Making these soul connections equally with my brothers and sisters who co-create this world with me just seems the right thing to do!
Carry on, my readers as we continue to re-discover the magical elements of this thing we call our life!
