12 years ago I left the corporate world to live a life with deeper
meaning. I started an herbal products business which I closed May 2008
to concentrate more on my healing practice and classes. Four years ago
I became a Reiki Master Teacher and started my healing practice with
the intention to provide a place for guidance, education and healing so
that we may find and empower our true Self.
have become so desensitized they do not notice the gifts that
are continually provided by nature and life.
Our lives do not make sense and our problems flourish because
industrial society does not teach us to seek, honor, and culture
nature's contributions to our lives. We learn instead to conquer, to
separate from, and deny the time-tested love, intelligence, and balance
found in the natural world.
a wonderful feeling to
be a catalyst for an individual’s healing and growth, to share the
excitement and wonder as we explore something new. I have learned and
experienced much from helping others connect with nature. I try to walk
this path with love,
gratitude and compassion, honoring the interconnectedness and
sacredness of all. My life's journey is in helping others to
discover pieces of who they are, to notice the beauty in the small
things, to be thankful for the challenges and lessons which allow for
their personal growth, and to be true to themselves; all which promote
a state of well-being, health and wholeness."
believe my personal growth lies in learning to consistently embrace the
‘here and now’ as the most important place in which to spend my
time." Recently my Reiki mantra has been: The power
is in the present. I also like the quote
by Harold Thurman Whitman: "Ask yourself what makes
you come alive, and then go do that. Because what the world
needs is people that have come alive." This work helps me
come alive through contact with nature....it is as if we have been
brainwashed to forget
that nature is part of the world."
at the pool this week, I was intrigued by a family of big, white puffy
clouds that drifted by. It struck me how serene and content
they seemed. They took their time floating along the blue
sky, in no hurry to get anywhere. I realized I wanted to be
like them. I want to flow with life instead of running ahead
of the Creator’s plans and trying to do so much that I miss those
subtle messages from nature and wildlife. I also want to rise
above life’s challenges. If I were to spend too much time
indoors, I would only have imaginary thinking about clouds in my Reiki
work, information from pictures in books, shows on TV, and articles on
the Internet. How much more do I like them if I see them in
person? The more exposure to the clouds while outside, the
more unadulterated thinking and sensing I gain. This enriches my life
and strengthens my connection with nature."
me, there is no greater reward in life than to be loved
unconditionally. I love to spend time with my cats.
I enjoy lots of moments stroking their fur and feeling their
softness. Navaho is especially silky and has a wonderful
coat. I love looking at Hug Me who is all black and watching
her yellow eyes pop out at me against her ebony background. I
can sense when they need to eat, when they want a treat, and when they
want my attention. Most of all, I can directly sense their
love for me which is unconditional. What a delight to come
home from work and have them greet me at the door. I can
sense their pleasure in having me home by being there to welcome me and
by rubbing against my legs. This is real. I’m
attracted to them because I sense that we are connected to each other
and they are not just pets; they are my brother and sister.
It is not my goal to dominate them. My goal is to love them
back as much as they love me and live in harmony with them."
Money usually comes with strings. But, unconditional love is
free and priceless. I want love to rule my life.
Relationships with animals, wildlife, and nature are priceless
treasures that no amount of money could ever buy. The ECHN
activities help me make it part of my Reiki work."
ECHN I see how we uncontrollably violate the world with the anger and
frustration from our lack of natural fulfillment and wisdom and the
subconscious hurt we feel and protect from further
irritation. I never thought of this before. I see
many angry people every day. I know people have a desire for
a spiritual life whether or not they realize it, but now I also realize
that the spiritual desire includes being connected to Mother Earth and
the animals. That would be more whole life energy medicine. I
was taught to deny my true nature because others tried to
conquer it. I know people try to conquer Mother Earth and
wildlife, but I had not thought of the relationship between both
instances. It has conquered Reiki, too, as it seems to be omitted in my
I do not want to be disconnected from the natural attraction
connections I enjoy with wildlife. This activity enhances my
sense of self worth. So often I have been judged by others, have judged
myself, and have judged others. No more! Knowing
nature does not judge me makes me trust it even more than I already do."
was reminded that the Natural Systems Thinking Process can help me have
better self-esteem and help me to be an overall better person.
I like that you are learning to track animals. What
a great way to learn about wildlife using your senses. I also
like that you got to track a bear. I like that we are a
community with plants and trees because of exchanging breaths.
I felt suddenly freed from the need to possess something. I
had a growing sense of letting things be and to just be still and glory
in the fullness of the moment. I learned that I do not need to possess
something to have the joy of it. I can give nature, wildlife, and
people freedom and still enjoy them. It is not necessary to
control or judge them. This contact has given me a stronger desire to
connect with nature."
"My favorite discovery is that each natural sense non-verbally
'remembers' eons of life experience for they come from it. Each is a
different expression of life's desire to exist. Each has valuable
powers and makes valuable contributions that, too often, our stories
ignore. Each contains the depth of the history of our
existence for our desire to live. And, almost, in irony we spend so
much time getting caught up in stories that stop us from truly living
and fully experiencing life, especially life in balance with nature.
How many of us even know what that is?
I did this activity a few times...my favourite was when I was in the
hot springs, with permission I began by watching the moon, and then as
I began to say 'unity' I noticed the steam swirling and dancing, the
breeze was soft on my face and it seemed that everytime I said unity
the moon got a little brighter. I also noticed that the sounds of
people that was annoying me slightly began to fade. The most important
thing I noticed wasn't a huge surge, it was a subtle grounding peaceful
feeling that I had to be aware of. I noticed details and intrincies,
which I found magical."
was walking along and this stick with a leaf beside it in the snow
caught my attention. I asked permission, I didn't get it...hmmm
why? I intuited to take off my sunglasses...and again asked
permission...the snow sparkled so brilliantly, it was breathtaking to
me. I felt the stick with my hand (eyes open and closed)...there was so
much variety...smooth, rough, holes, knobs, cool, warmer in
areas. I felt it with a gloved hand and was instantly
frustrated...I barely felt anything, I felt myself desperately trying
to feel more...
I realized just how much I glove my senses with my stories...so much I
don't feel while trying to stay 'warm' out of habit and
misunderstanding. How I have struggled to feel more in my
life...all I have to do is step out of the glove stories and embrace
nature with my naked vulnerable hand. The implications are a
little excitingly scary and profound.
I see that what I have craved all my life is right there in front of
me.That all things have wisdom with in them and I can learn immense
lessons from a stick, leaf and snow.
I want to say thank you to this group for all your inspiration
and reminders the depth and wisdom that arises from this work
always blows me away."
I continued to say unity , I approached the ocean. I began
to weep for a sadness came over me. The ocean called
out to me to release what I was holding onto this day. I suddenly felt
my emotions let go and the pit of my stomach soften as
the wind blew on my face for comfort.
This brought up the reminder for me that i truly am
an 'earth muffin', made from the very same things as
earth...and how wonderful it feels to be among family
(earth) and be re-MIND-ed of my roots.
How non-sensical it is to not think with nature...it's illogical and
rediculous...truly insane to think that I am not nature.
This cold wind felt so much like love. I saw my breath from
the cold and realized that my exhalation became part of the
wind and the wind came into my lungs upon inspiration. I left
with this question, "How can I change my life so that nature is with me
always.?" THAT is exactly WHY I have love affairs with wind. I remember
my favourite thing about travelling was experiencing the flavour of
But my greatest surprise was when after the activity, I went for a walk
on the road. Although I was not repeating the mantra unity any more, I
sensed like never before the presence of the green giants around me,
and the smooth, velvety quality of air that I was taking in as I was
breathing connected me to them in a way that was new to me. I felt at
one with the nature's flow and nature was the teacher"
separation from nature holds each of us hostage. I understand this
quote so much better after experiencing the unity discovered in the
past activities. I live as an hostage all week long when I
don’t have time to surrender to nature to relieve my burden. I feel I
am chained to a world that has created too many stories"
"So i took this question out with me on a walk...I kept asking "what do
i do for my career", then with that in mind I said the word
connection. I just kept getting the 'relax' feeling...there
were many natural attractions along the way. The one that stands out
the most is this huge hornet's nest hanging off the tree. I had never
seen it before even though I had walked this walk thousands of times
before...I know it's not new, as it's still winter here. It was a
interesting shape and colour...but what I sensed most from it was
I learned that there are options available that I haven't seen
before, even though they have been there all along.
A gorgeously cold and gloriously sunny day awaited my senses. I was
attracted to the warmth of the sun, the rhythmic silence, the breeze.
None of these things I thought I could grab a hold of, not 'right' for
the activity. But I thought i'd try it anyway. I tried to
grab a hold of the breeze with my hand...i gave it a good solid
yank. Laughter arose, along with a tingly feeling in my back
heart. It wasn't reasonable but it sure was fun. I loved the feeling of
being playful with the breeze.
Just for the sake of it I asked a golden piece of wild grass for
permission to tug it. I gently pulled on grass and felt it hold, I felt
it's resistance to being taken away from it's attractions, like the cry
of baby who wants to play but has to go to bed. In this moment of
feeling the resistence of the grass, I recognized the resistance
feelings in me when I force myself away from my attraction with my
story...if I don't pay attention it that resistance turns into
resentment which grows to anger."
"I sat soaking in the warmth of the hot springs and noticed a beautiful
rock on the side of the pool. I asked for permission and it
felt like the rocked glowed...all the beautiful rust and reds. I
thanked the rock aloud and exclaimed to my soaking companions how much
I appreciated the beauty of rock. They all whole heartedly agreed that
rock was extraordinary. I wanted to go and hug the rock but I
felt my wrangler kick in. Would I get in trouble? What would the others
think? So I asked rock if there was another way that I could thank more
deeply as I had nothing to give or leave. "Just enjoy me, appreciate me
with love". So, I sat in front of rock and soaked in her beauty and
felt so grateful".
"When I ask permission to enter this natural area, it is the leaves, or
a rush of a
breeze that lets me know I am embraced. When I see and feel a
strong wind suddenly, it means there is something important for me to
experience. It feels like our connect is
intensified. This is exciting, and today a willow
tree is waving emphatically, I quickly enter under her dome of
leaves and swooping branches.
Silence. It feels purpose-less, which I like. Being
One with All has been a purpose-ful meditation for a
while now, and I feel the approach of
this ongoing 'meditation.' I am just enjoying the
presence of this place, which I now
realize is becoming too familiar for me. This is a scene that I grew up
in when I was very young.
Innocence and Consciousness... to be continued..So, I do live here now,
and this is my classroom, just as is right here,
where I write..."
"It is at these moments of settling in, that my growth becomes
spiritually rich, or
divested and invested, by and
through information for helping others,
and conversations with Nature that occassionally arise for
enlivening my work. I typically receive
information and feelings, to be furthered, grounding myself
into my healing work at this time. Then
I journal and use this with other guidance and/or lucid
dreams to create healing movement and to further
connections and artful expressions. Not
today, I need silence, seems right, thanks.
Silence. I hear birds singing, cars, ducks swimming and
'laughing,' people talking, it doesn't matter what I hear, because
what is most distinct is the silence behind all
sound. I need familiarity in order to hear the silence behind
it. This silence is a communion we all share, a comfortable
energy blanket for me right now. I am hearing the
sound of "patience," the sound of "tolerance," but these words
have no meaning really, because this silence is pure, wordless, it
simply is. This is like tolerance, but tolerance is
a term to define one who must be, or must have been, waiting
for something to occur. There is no waiting here."
Nature has identified me, and I have identified Nature through my
desire for silence, and now, I do experience and know
a purity of balance, because I feel the silence and the noise
as one, and "yes, to all of this," is all I can artfully say.
Wow, will nature always provide this Yes, no matter what I need, if so,
this means my attractions must also somehow be perfect. Yes!
This healing was profound, life changing and so incredibly gentle, like
a simple shift in resonance. I can't wait to allow this
process to continue to enliven beyond healing, this healing furthers my
purpose-ful being and work, through acceptance. I love this."
"I was very attracted to the statement that wholeness and holiness are
the same word, and sanctified and sanctuary, too. I was also intrigued
that Kahlil Gibran thought that ‘Nature is God gazing at himself in a
mirror.’ These statements show me that God and Nature are one and the
same, and therefore, one way to be closer to God or to truly know God
is to be close to nature and try to know nature. It seems evident that
we can’t overlook that the great sages, gurus, saints, prophets, etc of
the past connected with nature for inspiration and higher connection."
"Sometimes this sensory attraction wisdom is misnamed our "inner child"
even though it is an essence of earth itself."
I thought about this statement a lot, and what it feels like this
'inner child'... for me it is a feeling of peace of joy and hope. A
feeling that anything is possible but no stress if its not. The feeling
of rolling with whatever is happening ... then Ithought
about the earth.. the fact that it just is. And I
found this statement to be true. (Unlike the Spirit, which comes from
the theosphere, the Soul is born from nature--the biosphere)
"To reverse our troubles we must learn to occasionally reconnect with
This is actually much easier then I thought it would be to do! I was

outback! but it is quite practical and do-able for everyone. That is

"I chose my backyard for this activity. It was night time, i asked for
my consent and it was granted as everything just stood attractive and
still. The night was so clear, I began to repeat the word nameless as i
looked around... every time my eye caught something new my mind would
say its name in my head. I corrected it with nameless. It took quite a
bit of time doing this before I could feel the names drift away, and we
were all connected, joined together in this life force that is beyond
my sight or knowledge. It was powerful but quiet. I looked up at the
night sky and could see the natural attraction energies I have been
reading about, and what it means that we are all connected. I felt like
i belonged. Accepted. Loved. Supported. Even though most of my yard was
in shadows i could feel the significance of everything in
it.. It felt to me like the revelation of previously hidden
"Sensing nature is a cleansing and healing experience. I rubbed my head
and released all of my old stories. I stood outside and kept on shaking
away each head story by shaking my hands. The wind was around me, the
earth was below me, and they just keep purifying my hands until I felt
a calmness come over me. I felt the wind blowing away all of the old
stories and the earth under my feet bring up energy to my body to heal.
Once all of my hand shaking was done I felt love of myself and for
I am a Reiki Master and this experience is very similar to clearing
auras. First I open the chakras by holding the top of my head, then I
Reiki ones aura, and shaking my hands to release and remove any energy
that is causing harm or conflict. Reiki is based on love and
positive energy. In this sensing nature activity I was tapped into the
natural energy of nature’s attraction love and energy. These
experiences heal and the scars of the past and offer me positive energy
for my self and to share with others.
Nature heals, Nature loves, Nature provides us with energy. I released
the old harmful stories within my life. I felt free. This experience
offered me a fresh new start. I found that Reiki and this activity have
many common grounds. Knowing this I can blend the two for the
betterment of all. My self worth now is able to move forward."
entered a local conservation area where small chickadee birds eat seed
right out of your open hand. I have enjoyed this areas for
many years as a walking trail and have always marveled in the subtle
changes. As I set foot at the beginning of the forest, I
stopped and silently asked permission to enter and to be drawn in by
nameless attractions. Interestingly, I felt as if I was being
led through the woods by a magnetic force, almost as if my feet weren't
touching the ground and I was floating effortlessly. Although
I have visited this natural area many times before, it felt like the
very first time as each tree revealed itself to me. Even in
winter and the dormant stage of the area - there was life
abundant. One birch in particular grew into two separate
trees and then joined together again eight feet into the air for about
6 inches and then separated again and grew many branches high into the
sky. I took a picture of it as a remembrance that each unique
occurance in Nature is good.
As I left the area, I thanked it and actually felt a pulling back into
the forest - like I should continue. Sadly, it was too cold,
and that sensation attracted me to go home and warm up."
was attracted to the song of a frog on the opposite side of the
river. I listened to the song and felt as though I understood
what he was saying. The frog's song was a song of
gratitude. I felt hope at hearing this. I felt that
if I could be on the same level as a frog, sharing contentment and
gratitiude, then I am a part of the circle. I felt
connected. It is difficult for me to put into words the
feelings that I felt. I was humble and content. I
felt small, but strong. I felt free and a part of something
larger and more beautiful than myself."
noisy life laced by a webstring of Silence,
I open out from the willow tree, and just look
around. Allness. An acorn falls, equally
pulled to the earth. Equally
beneficial attraction of opposing energies,
magnetism. I thank the grass, I visualize tree roots, being
held, welcomed, pulled downward as they grow around and down,
out of sight, into my seeing ... The way that I now
understand life on planet Earth, held by these
same attractions that connect our solar
system as we know it, evolution as attraction to be more
attractive by supporting life... as I am aware of my own
living in the earth now. Deep within, I must be attracted to
the earth beyond anything my thoughts are presently
... It is such a new feeling this being pulled into
the Earth, I'll let my mind evolve into this ..."
"I am now painfully aware that I can not maintain my
equilibrium when working just to support
my survival needs, it does not also support my need
for this new experiencing. My new way of
being here is energizing attractions that have been dormant all my
life, out of disconnection from myself, and feelings of
futility in relationship to the "larger picture..."
"Somehow I am now able to allow irritations within me surface
naturally, as attractions... My own repetitive
mechanical warmfuzzy expressions exhausted me, but this work is
evolving naturally within me, manifesting behaviors that feel
as though they have been waiting, stacked in a queue...
Trusting how my nature works now is completing itself inside of me,
loosening the bindings, which become fragments of misguided natural
atrraction attachments. Now free, they will continue their simultaneous
becoming me and leading me ...
enter the park where my willow tree is, and as I approach, leaves and
limbs move like crazy; there is incredible welcoming
here. I start to cry. My tears flow so easily, and
I slip underneath her canopy, lean my back
against her trunk. "I miss my mother." Never have I
really felt this, but suddenly here it is, and the feeling and I are
one. I now both see and naturally feel that I choose this
park for my work here because of its similarity
to the environment of my early childhood. I am
attracted to reattaching some natural senses here.
Through this work, I more fully experience a welcoming
loving with this tree. I spent a lot of time as a
child underneath the shelter of a large willow tree. I am now
able to allow primal feelings of being cut off from my connection with
my mother, because I have re-established them here. For as
long as I can recall, there has been a sense of longing within me, a
longing to go home. For the first time, I both feel and
know that it is really that I spent my entire
childhood missing my mother. She was abusive and
distant. I am able to experience now
the phantom-like quality about her, that began so
early in my life... I feelingly remember myself and her
departure, her foreverness on the periphery of loving
engagement. At the same time, because of
this perfect, gentle, supportive way of processing, I can also felt
sense understand that I wouldn't have been able
to carry this fragment, my missing her all my life,
if we hadn't initially shared love. And I
now feelingly know that the natural attraction didn't break, which
I find astonishing. These natural sensory
attractions, so thin, so stretched, so twisted, have
always been within me, an attraction ...
I thank this tree and walk out from underneath her, she is
very still. I turn, and there, I see her as a very beautiful
goddess... I easily connect feelings now that are warm toward my
mother, because she gave birth to me. It is important that
she knows I am happy, because it will give her warmth and relief..."
experience in nature shows me that I am a person who gets good feelings
from" crawling up as close as I can to a tiny toad, a toad with a
little tail, with tiny webbed feet and copper colored omni-eyes,
looking at me from every direction, unblinking. I
see, it is breathing. I want to protect this tiny toad out
here in the grass, not moving. I love this toad. I
want this toad to know I love it, that it is safe. But, I bet
my large presence is not reassuring. I slowly back away and
slowly walk backwards toward a young willow tree nearby. The
toad is still motionless. I slowly turn my head toward the
willow, "attractions," I begin my homework--
I have to check on the toad-- not there! The toad, oh,
jumps! I feel such-- gleeeee! The sun, the toad, the willow,
the water, the water lilies, the dragonflies, it is all my backyard in
rural Michigan, and now I am three, four, five... I almost
flunked kindergarten because I couldn't take the indoors, the
organization, the coloring in the lines within a certain time, the
playground so depressing, gravel, metal, and so
much crying, screaming, shouting. I wanted to just
go back home, to the lake and talk to the fish, the frogs, the turtles,
the fairies, the spiders, the snakes, the robins--and so much
more ... This toad, out here jumping in the
grass, brought it all back. I am so happy!"
is utmost to me that this work be shared with others for its curative
powers and very needed consciousness
connects, where our eternal essence
is employed. It is in nature, where
attractions, so immediate, and time, so brief, that fullness is
realized. I sense the immersion with all in a person who
senses a tree nearby with eyes shut. And I have also had
several deep experiences in nature, by being
perfectly still. Once, I even hiked barefoot...I came so
close to an owl that it spread its enormous wings right over me, and I
got to spend a long while within just a few feet from a large whitetail
deer, the kind of whitetails that have the larger plume-like
tails. Once I watched a baby lynx chase a squirrel,
and one time I got to watch a newborn
deer, shaking laying in the tall leaves in the
forest. Being silent in nature is being as as large as all of
I have learned that this work is capable of being logically presented,
which helps us all communicate, and that is important, because what I
am also learning is that I am very attracted to sharing it both in
natural and teaching ways. It is working its way into my
healing work, and I look forward to bringing myself to working with it
in its entirety."
After what feels like a minute, a tree close by is shaking all
over. This is striking to me, none of the other trees are
moving at all. I look all around, nothing matches this tree's
action. I walk right to it. I notice it is an oak,
thin, brown leaves, sticks at the end of limbs, where leaves used to
hang. I have not been attracted to this tree
before. I notice small golden to brown cones. Very
unusual and pretty. I examine its leaves, an oak of some
sort. I lovingly thank this tree, and am learning through our
mutual natural attraction, it is just as much a part
of everything as is the Aspen tree on the other side of the
pond, where I am most attracted. I am astounded.
This unattractive tree, I have given only a passing glance. I
am opening to moving beyond myself, and I now
lovingly transform. How I have lived in a
world of my own design, habituating, recurring, looking for validation,
affirmation, and yes, healing my Self. But this is also
compromising and this felt moment is loving
transcendence. This love feels unconditional,
and naturally the most loving healing of my psyche.
I feel the enormous love of this work, growing even as I
write. There is no center in nature, in life, and there is so much more
love and beauty in being a harmonious part of it all, than being a
center. This is ultimate freedom..."
