How to Become One with Nature
We are already one with nature. We have always been and always will be.
So what do we mean when we say become one with nature? It is allowing our consciousness or awareness to become one, instead of living a life with a separation consciousness, as many do. A separation consciousness allows the ego to act, not from a place of love, but only in an effort to gain benefit for itself. As a result, the earth becomes a mere commodity. In essence, the part (humans) tries to control the whole (earth).
Remember, the earth does not need humans to live, but we need the earth. If we do not awaken to the truth that we are all connected and live an earth-centered life, then we may not be able to continue to live on this planet.
In order to realize this connection, we must journey within to get to know ourselves better. This will take us beyond the ego separation. When we go within, we will feel that innate connection to Mother Earth/nature and to others.
Connecting with Nature Meditation
We are all made of energy or vibrations and the easiest place to feel or sense the energy is through our hands. In this example, we will feel the energy of a tree, however, you can feel the energy of anything in nature.
First, ask for permission from the tree and then look at it. Take your time in looking at the tree. Perhaps you may start to feel the energy or other information about the tree – such as the age.
Now you are ready to bring your hands to the tree. Bring your hands close to the tree but do not touch it. In this position, you are giving energy to the tree. Next, slowly move your hands back towards you. In this position, you are receiving energy from the tree. Continue this back and forth movement, of giving and receiving energy from the tree. When you are ready, coordinate your breathing with the movement. Breathe in when you are receiving and breathe out when you are sharing.
As you do this energy exchange meditation, you can begin to feel there is no separation between you and the tree or you and nature. You may also start to naturally feel a sense of gratitude. If you like, talk to the tree and give thanks to it.
As you finish, give the tree a hug and feel the energy together. Perhaps you may feel that the tree is hugging you and sending you energy as well. If you stay silent and listen, the tree may even give you a message.
We hope this meditation has helped you to feel more connected to nature and to the earth.
