Synchronicity is at work! I laughed seeing the card I pulled for your communication practice tip. Following Leah's interview, this card echoed our conversation about how to communicate with animals. (Unlike non-human animals), we (humans) have busy minds. We're often thinking (yes?).
Thinking take us out of the moment. Out of NOW. Our thinking minds take us on frequent detours to the 'past' or 'future'. Thinking takes us away from the practice of being.
Animals and Nature are always communicating with us. By dropping into our being (our natural state), we're more likely to notice the impressions - the intuitive communication - being sent our way.
How do we do this?
This week I talked with a tree.
Trees are master healers. Any time you'd like some help, approach a tree that attracts you.
Stand (or sit) with your back against the tree, ask for support, and thank the tree when you leave.
This time, I was guided to ask for a message from the tree.
I stand with my back to the tree, looking out on the snow-capped landscape.
The tree showed me that while on the surface it looked lifeless that underneath (hidden from view) tremendous growth was occurring. I couldn't see visibly see it, yet it was happening.
The tree showed me an image of her roots, the soil, the inhabitants in the ground (under the snow) and I felt the energy of this growth coming from the underground.
There was a flash...
