I’d like to tell you a story about nature (and there’s a lesson here that applies to your life).
One day when I was quite young I went for a hike with my family. We were walking through a forest with large trees and a soft babbling creek flowing beside the trail.
As we moved along that day I started feeling very different than on other hikes.
I was drawn into the sounds & smells of the forest in a new way. There were so many different shades of green & birds singing all around me.
I had never noticed nature like this before.
My chattering mind began to quiet down and my body started buzzing with aliveness. I felt my mind flooding with new ideas and I saw my life with a deep sense of clarity.
Perhaps you’ve experienced something like this in your life?
You might call it ‘flow’ or you might call it a peak experience.
It doesn’t really matter what you call it. It’s these moments of deep awareness when people have the greatest access to new ideas, creativity and insights.
I’ve come to realize in recent years that this experience is a very natural state of mind. It’s always there when we take the time to ‘wake up and smell the roses’.
I often come back to this state when I spend quality time out in nature. It provides insight to guide my life.
How You Can Do Nature Awareness Routines:
There was a question sent in asking about the routines that I use to help switch on my awareness. It’s a really great question so I want to share the video response with you.
