connected to all of nature and each other as part of Organism Earth. This is exactly like our fingers are
We are each a natural organism. As part of ourselves, our fingers and limbs naturally communicate. For
example, We are
usually attracted to scratch our leg when it itches. In addition,
we often don't think about doing it. Sometimes we don't even realize
that we did it.
Do you know that we usually feel
isolation and seek "security" because, without realizing it, on
average, we spend over 98 percent of our life out of communication with
disconnected from the natural life community of Gaia?
We lose self-esteem and produce and suffer disorders because we have detached our
awareness from the flow of nature's nurturing and restorative powers,
in and around us.
Project NatureConnect page on Facebook is dedicated to help all of us
celebrate and strengthen our connectedness and ability to communicate
as part of Organism Earth. The page can help you enjoy and benefit from online
"natural love-in's for life" as well as courses and degree programs
based on them.
The immense separation of our psyche
from the love and intelligence of our biological origins in Gaia
produces problems. The disconnection creates our excessive
depression and stress. It also creates excessive requirements for money
to buy the necessary health goods for the sensory bonds that we
wound as we painfully sever our connections with our planet
This separation from the flow of nature, within and about us, helps to explain why we can't stop being destructive or
excessive, even when we
know that it is reasonable to stop.
Our disconnection from
Mother Nature is similar to removing a baby from its mother's breast
and replacing it with a nipple attached to a bottle of beer. Until they
are restored, the child's physical and emotional bonds to its human
mother, along with its love of life, become, instead, bonded or
addicted to the beer and the bottle, along with their harmful effects.
our Project NatureConnect page on Facebook, Gaia-connecting activities, degrees and
careers in educating, counseling and healing with nature help us
increase our personal, social and environmental well being. They enable
our psyche to recycle and correct our destructive thoughts and
feelings. They give us the ability to reconnect and think with the
wellness powers of the flow of nature, backyard or back country.
long as we remain psychologically attached to the "beer nipple," we
feel that life sucks, and that we are helpless to make it
This produces our anger and anxiety because we know that we don't have
ability to make our lives change. I know from experience, and
from my observations of others, that achieving this ability may be
accomplished through Project NatureConnect's online activities, books

I went to an old haunt as a teenager. We would go to this park and hang
out in the woods. I asked permission to be with nature and I opened my
trust in nature to be their for me. The woods did not hold happy
memories for me and it was hard to enter. I walked slowly I could see
old ghosts flying through the trees. I pondered the thought, how can
this natural area harbor such pain?
I was thinking this, I felt the wind gently blow. With each gentle wind
the ghosts flew away and I could feel nature's healing.
Nature gave me courage to face wrangles of the past. The harm of low
self esteem created by cruelty of others was removed.

The purity of nature’s love is the core of our inner

Eucalyptus, Fir and Poplar. A busy day spent working on

irritated. Approaching the trees and watching them flow with
wind I knew that was where I needed to be. Thankfully gaining

I discovered that trust, innocence, wisdom and
assurance are evident everywhere in Nature.Having experienced countless
positive, enriching and enlightening encounters in Nature my trust has
been absolutely authenticated. Nature is an elixir and an essential
whole in every life.
Knowing that I can trust Nature
gives me immense confidence and joy in living. Everything that brings
honesty, truth, realness, love and wisdom to life is expressing the
powers of nature's flowing essence. I discovered that trusting nature
activates love and that I am empowered and nourished by this discovery.

did this activity in a park area. I know I had gained consent from this
area when a pair of chipmunks on a large desert rock stood up on their
back feet clasping their front paws together in a praying position
while facing the sun. I gave them space as I watched them. Then one
dashed away hiding under a small desert plant while the other
entertained me. I thanked chipmunk, this area and all my relations.

went again to the Snowbells in my garden, I love to enjoy them,
because they are not there for a long time.
The little flowers were dancing in the wind, I almost could hear the
sound of little bells. I start singing with them.
I like the Snowbells at this moment, because they invited me to sing
them and even though the soil is hard, they came through it, even they looks
so vulnerable, shows me how strong they really are. I realized how
powerfull sunlight is, compared with the power in the wrong way
it is used by people.
Applying this to myself, I like myself, because when I show my
vulnerablity, I show also my strength of myself and hope I can inspire
others with that. So we can sing together on the hard parts in our
lives and in the communities. We are all come from the same direction;
I learned to enjoy the moment, even those that seem to be
short and that my vulnerability is my strength in the same moment.
I began to see the difference between power in nature and
power what people use
against people to get what they want. (more power!)
I learned that being vulnerable doesn't has to mean weak, as
was taught me.
in this community is not only physical, but being strong
and connected with your natural senses.To show my
vulnerability is not what people are used to, or I was used
to. But to show it with the strength of my natural self can inspire
people to be themselves. To sing and dance together will bring more joy
in our lives; it is a
sharing of joy what make live valuable.
To show who I am and also in the moments of being vulnerable is
the strength to be who I am. This activity re-educated
my view on the temporary
presence of nature and to enjoy them in the moment.
Inside I re-educated my view on what I was taught:
when not showing your vulnerability, you miss a lot of
past year, I had been under so much stress I came down with Epstein
Barr which has since morphed into Chronic Fatigue so trying to keep
everything on an even keel has taken it's toll on me. The only thing
that has helped me reduce the stress is this program. My daughter is
Bipolar and Obsessive Compulsive with a germ phobia, so I feel like I
am walking on eggshells at times. Doing this activity, while I was
sitting on a bench and
watching the ducks perform their antics and the trees gently waving in
the breeze, I looked around and it was as if all worries melted away.
Suddenly, it was as if the water, trees, and even the ducks were in
communion with me. One of the ducks came beside me and just sat there
staring out at the water as if to say, " watch the water just carry it
all away". I have felt more energy since connecting with nature more
and it has helped me not feel so torn between everyone as much. I just
want to gather all of nature and just spread it around so more people
can feel such a connection. Oh, wait, it is spread all around, so I
guess we just need to wake some people up to the connection. :)"
"I am attracted to the sentence and to the reality behind these words:
"I learned that sensory fulfillment could catalyze recovery. I had
created space that allowed NIAL, my inner desire to be more complete,
to express itself. Once I learned and applied that secret, good things
began to happen for me." I have embraced NIAL and can not imagine my
world without this connection and my awareness of it.
The cohesion activity was great and it demonstrated just how all things
are connected with myself as the hub or center of the web. I learned
and really appreciate how I feed off of my environment and how vital
that energetic connection truly is.
went to one of my favorite places to do this activity. As I was walking
the shore of this uninhabited island, I kept thinking what a magical
place it was. I told it I loved it because it was magical. I wondered
what about it made me feel it was magical and if I shared any of those
qualities with it. I thought about this for a long time. Everything
seemed so seemless and easy: the trees, rocks, seaweed, shells, ocean
water, sky, wind- I marveled at how they all shared this space(without
having to talk or plan it out) to create such a beautiful
It is always a different scene when I go. Depending on where the tide
is, a different landscape is exposed. I love how it is always changing
and in the most natural and easy way. How does the tide know when to
ebb and flow or the moss know to grow on the fallen log or the waves
and rocks to transform the shells into sand? It knows just what to do
all the time. The place is magical because of it's natural
intelligence. It knows how to just be and without effort willingly take
part in the global dance. I thought of the idea of working smarter
instead of harder. I appreciated how nature works with such
by following natural intelligences, where we seem to try so hard to
make things work, being willful instead of willing. I wonder if we
think we are smarter than nature? As ridiculous as it sounds, why else
would we distrust our sensory intelligences for "higher reasoning"?
appreciate myself for my natural intelligence. This was interesting for
me to say and hear as I do not feel confident in my ability to think
and reason. I don't often feel smart and often feel inferior to others
who have a stronger sense of logical reasoning. I have an extremely
difficult time making decisions. If I could better appreciate my
emotional/sensory intelligences, I would be able to trust myself more.
I need to remember not to try so hard to think my way through it, but
to drop the analysis and listen to my natural attraction.This leads me
back to the concept that there is a place and a purpose for me just
being in the world and increases my feelings of self worth.
I discovered that if I want to increase my feelings of self worth, I
need to get
myself outside and that I have a natural sensory intelligence inside of
me ready to inform
me, whenever I am ready to listen. Natural intelligences don't need to
be fought for, only allowed to

looked up and was immediately attracted by the deep inky sky displaying
a multitude of bright, twinkling stars. There was an orange one that I
was particularly attracted to and I realized it was probably a planet.
I gazed at the planet and the stars and was taken by their mystery and
beauty. I felt my being expanding; my head opening to the
welcoming and magical connection extended by the cosmos and my feet
opening to the healing and harmonic rhythms of the Earth. I

"Though I have always had a strong sense of
with nature, the simple beauty of Mike Cohen's brilliant guidance into
both the Natural System Thinking Process, and the appealing and
effective reconnection with the 53 Natural Senses has heightened that
communion for me. I easily recognize and acknowledge in a daily
conscious way the myriad of communications that happen when we are so
intricately and intimately engaged with trees, and birds, and wind and
water, with growing, breathing, planet earth; with the understanding
that the flowers don't struggle to have their needs met comes also an
abiding understanding that there is a unifying, underlying intelligence
inherent within nature's restorative balance and beauty."

thinking is so powerful, yet so misled. Whatever we learn, are
conditioned to think, or choose to think makes the woman, along with the rest of the world, turn one way or another. This includes nature-disconnected fashions, money, power, degrees, politics, literacy, government.
When we learn to think Mother Earth is dead, we treat the world with a "we really can't hurt it" spin and act accordingly.
When we learn that Earth is alive, we may relate to it in sensitive ways that help sustain its life, and therefore our own.
Do you think that the truth we learn when we discover that Earth is alive changes how we perceive and relate to the the world ?
How accurate is the nature-disconnected way we think? We assign qualities and react to the figure as it spins when it's really just a flat image that doesn't turn at all.
