CONNECT WITH NATURE IN 8 WAYS *feel free*
~ People tend to laugh at me when I help the insects or toads cross the streets 🙁 But that doesn’t stop me from following my intuition and helping some fellow earthlings!
No more excuses, grab your backpack and go for a hike in nature. Whether you walk for only 20 minutes or a whole day, you are going. That’s the end of the discussion! Today, you are going for a walk, my friend.
Walking between the trees will already give you a feeling of being connected to nature. There are actually ways of making this feeling stronger. In this article you are going to find out 8 ways on how to connect with nature. You can do these things for free, but they are worth a lot. They will give you a feeling of oneness with nature and you will feel more loved. feeling connected to nature will help you in everyday life.
I could tell you so many reasons why you should connect with nature more often. I could write a whole blog post about it, I actually did that! You can read in this blog post all the reasons why you should connect with nature more often. However, in this blog post we’re going to focus on the HOW. How can you connect with nature?
Let’s just get started with this blog post about all the ways you can connect with mother nature!
1. HUG A TREE
Did you know that there are many benefits of hugging a tree? Studies have shown that being around trees reduces stress. When you feel like you are running out of time, take some time to go to the forest.
Walk up to a big tree that looks inviting to you and hug her! Share your love with her and in return she will give you some love. Feel how deep her roots are and ground yourself! Feel her strength and her softness.
I think it’s better to do this somewhere quiet, so that you can focus on yourself. Without being distracted by people walking by and feeling watched. Children love climbing trees, I think hugging a tree will help you connect with this phase.
The phase of freedom! That’s what we all want, freedom. It’s a choice, you choose freedom. If not, others will take your freedom, whether that is physical, spiritual, mental or on another plane, they will take it. Choose freedom of the mind, body and soul!
2. WALK BAREFOOT
No matter what your beliefs are, walking barefoot feels very freeing! No shoes, no socks, nothing that separates you from the earth. Just you and nature. Of course this will bring peace to your mind.
Feeling the sand on the beach between your toes connects you to nature. Her powers rise up through your feet to the rest of your body! Feel her powers empower you! Stand your ground and stay strong. Even when you can’t see your strength, know that your roots run deep! It’s only a matter of time before you will start to see the fruits.
Walking barefoot whether that is in nature or at home will make you feel more free. All these clothes that we are wearing are sometimes not serving us. Saying no to the shoes will help you connect with the wild (wo)men within!
3. FIND SACRED GEOMETRY
Once you know the patterns of sacred geometry, you will find it everywhere in nature. Learn something about sacred geometry patterns that can be found in nature. Buy a book from amazon and start to wonder over the wonders of this planet!
I remember sitting in my math class years ago and observing the The Fibonacci sequence. I thought it looked so cool. I have always been someone who searched for the patterns in things. It came naturally, I like to visualize ideas. I see the year as an oval/circle in my mind and the week is also a circle. It may sound strange for some, but when I hear about something happening on 21 july, I think of the left side of the oval, lol!
4. HELP INSECTS CROSS OVER THE PATH
People tend to laugh at me when I help the insects or toads cross the streets 🙁 But that doesn’t stop me from following my intuition and helping some fellow earthlings! And you should too. When you see an insect laying in the middle of the street and a car is nearing, you help them. They have a 50% chance of surviving, but with your help they have way more chances of surviving the crossing. Of course you help then, do you?
When you have helped an animal cross the street, you feel accomplished. No matter how horrible your day was, you feel like you did something good. You helped nature in turn you will feel more one with nature. We are all on this earth living our lives, why not help each other. Be connected with the All, because we are the All!
5. SPREAD LOVE (TELL BIRDS U LOVE THEM)
Because why shouldn’t you share love? When you spread love you get love right. I think this also counts with nature. When you are loving towards nature, you will feel more connected to it. Furthermore, you appreciate its beauty more and will have more respect for nature.
Be thankful for nature and how magical it is. Explore your senses when you are surrounded by nature.
Smell the earth.
Hear the birds singing.
See animals playing.
Feel the wind kiss your skin.
And taste the flower (only if you know this is healthy of course).
6. COLLECT BEAUTIFUL STONES
When you think about stones, you start to wonder how old they are and how they were created. They don’t get a lot of our attention, but they should. They are in all kinds of shapes and are beautiful. Searching and collecting stones can help connect you to nature! You can collect stones with smiling faces or something else you like. Just like humans they come in all sizes and shapes 🙂
Now turns out, there are people that collect other types of stones. They don’t collect stones in the shape of a heart for example, but creepy stones. Stones that have angry faces on them. One time I was walking in the forest and on a tree were pinned 12 stones in the shape of a circle. It looked so creepy, kinda like people did rituals there. Why would someone do that, trust me it looked really creepy!
So collect positive stones, with smiling faces or hearts! You can choose to keep them and give them a beautiful place at your home or give them back to nature. Whatever feels best for you.
7. OBSERVE FLOWERS
In myths, flowers are associated with a diversity of things. They can represent life or death. However, they are most widely known to bring beauty and fertility. They represent the expression of life force. I think this idea makes them so special and unique! Because just like humans, every flower is unique. They may look a lot like each other, but there are small differences between every one of them.
When you walk in nature, stand still and observe the flowers. As you walk down your path, see the beauty around you. Connect with nature and realize that the flowers were created with the elements: Water, Earth, Fire and Air! Connect with the elements and be empowered by them.
8. MEDITATE IN NATURE
I think this one seems very logical. What would be better to meditate in than nature? When I am home I hear children playing and people walking their dogs, this is nice. However, if you want to calm the mind, this doesn’t really help. For this reason, going to nature and finding a quiet place will be very helpful.
Another reason to visit nature more often is because it makes you feel connected with it. This is of course very beneficial when you meditate. Imagine yourself meditating while hearing the trees and birds whispering. This will help you connect with Mother Earth.
