One of the best ways to open the tracks of power that flow between you and the wholeness of nature is to engage directly with the rhythms. Everyone, everything, and everywhere has an ebb and flow; cycles that can be subtle or incredible dramatic. These rhythms are like a breath- inhalation that fill with power and potential, exhalations that release, compost, and reset. By aligning to these rhythms as they show up in the world we call home, we can find greater success, synchronicity, and power in all we do.
Without looking at the calendar, I invite you to step outside and experience directly what the land around you and all her inhabitants are actually expressing right here, right now. What are the trees doing? How has the behavior of the squirrels changed over the past few weeks? Are there bees, and if so which plants are feeding them? Are flowers blooming or is soil bare and cold? To really explore the language of the land is to enter into a direct personal communication with what is actually happening versus what the calendar says should be happening. It is to let the land speak for the land, the animals speak for the animals, the insects for the insects, and so on.
We, too, are part of these sacred cycles and rhythms. So, if the trees are releasing their faded leaves, animals are scurrying to store up food for the coming cold months, and the days are getting shorter, how can we align our own personal rhythms, activities, rituals, and mental atmospheres t be in radical harmony? When it’s time to slow down, do you find it hard to slow down? When it’s time to begin and grow, are you just getting ready for rest? If your n rhythms are not in some kind of accord with those of the world around you, consider this a formal invitation to align and harmonize!
When in doubt about what to do, when to do it, and how to make it happen, remember your part-of-ness with nature and look to your kin in body and spirit that surround you.
