Regeneration | Of Life

It’s the classic story of the Phoenix rising. This morning I came across this Bright Vibes article about regrowth beginning after the recent devastating Australian fires: Life finds a way: pictures after the Australian bushfires. I urge you to take just a moment to open the article; no reading required, just amazing photos of the miracle of regeneration after devastation. They will light up your day.

I was reminded and heartened by the strength of will of all life on this planet to survive and endure. Some days it just feels like it’s all falling apart, so photos like this restore faith in the eternal cycle of life, a welcome beacon in a night of growing despair.

To take it a step further, the will of the human spirit to endure and overcome hardship is also a source of amazement and inspiration to me. It seems like humanity is really being challenged at the moment. It’s our moment to step up to the plate and prove that we can do it better, for the Earth, and for each other.

It’s time for a regeneration of the human spirit.

Pulsing | With Life

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming for an important break.

A nature break, that is. Nature’s poetry brought to your doorstep. Just breathe in the green and feel the gentle pulse of the sweet soul of the Earth…

Inspirational Quotes from John Muir:

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.” 

“In every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks.”

“I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.”

“As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I’ll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I’ll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can.”

Resonate | With Earth

Did you know? The Earth’s “heartbeat” (called the Schumann Resonance) is an electromagnetic wave that circles her circumference, and it is closely connected to (and communicates with) our brains.

This from a Gizmodo post, The Earth has a heartbeat we can see from space:

“The wavelength is the circumference of the earth (or twice the circumference, or three times, or four, and so on). This means that the troughs of these waves will always line up, as will the crests. When crests combine, they get bigger. And with lightning hitting the earth over four million times a day, these waves keep getting the boosts they need. The waves don’t sweep across the surface of the earth. Instead they’re like standing waves, that just pulse at their troughs and crests – a resonant heartbeat.”

The Schumann Resonance (the base atmospheric electromagnetic resonant frequency is 7.83 Hz) is closely in sync with our Alpha brain waves (8 to 12 Hz). Alpha waves “are dominant during quietly flowing thoughts, and in some meditative states. Alpha is ‘the power of now’, being here, in the present. Alpha is the resting state for the brain. Alpha waves aid overall mental coordination, calmness, alertness, mind/body integration and learning.” (From What are Brainwaves? – Brainworks, Train Your Mind.)

The scientific study of the full effects of interference with the Shchumann Resonance ELF waves on our well-being is still in its infancy. But, studies to date suggest that when human vibration is out of sync with the Earth’s resonant heartbeat, we are not in a prime state of health. There are many articles outlining the interference and possible detrimental effects played by our synthetic technologies.

There are also theories that staying in alignment could play an important part in the future expansion of our collective human consciousness. The heartbeat of the Earth is connected to us in ways that are only starting to be understood.

But, why not let yourself be the judge? Start noticing how you feel when you spend too much time around TV, computers, cell phones, etc. And comparatively, the next time you’re out in nature, really tune in to how the images, colors, and sounds are affecting your mind and body.

Listen to the Earth’s heartbeat. She is communicating with you, so get to know and feel her language. Whether you realize it or not, she is calling you back to your organic essence.

Rejuvenate | With nature

As I take my daily walks along the river, framed by fragrant eucalyptus trees, I wonder what I would do without this escape hatch, my decompression chamber from the stresses of daily life. I feel in better balance when I return from my walks.

F. Scott Fitzgerald apparently said, “And after reading [Henry David] Thoreau, I felt how much I have lost by leaving nature out of my life.”

Yes, the famous essayist, poet and philosopher Henry David Thoreau not only loved nature; he also believed it is an important part of our human experience here on Earth. Thoreau left us a rich legacy of works about life, freedom, and nature.

Here are just a few of my favorite Thoreau quotes about nature:

“I love Nature partly because she is not man, but a retreat from him. None of his institutions control or pervade her. There a different kind of right prevails. In her midst I can be glad with an entire gladness. If this world were all man, I could not stretch myself, I should lose all hope. He is constraint, she is freedom to me. He makes me wish for another world. She makes me content with this.”

“If a man walk in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer; but if he spends his whole day as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making earth bald before her time, he is esteemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.”

“He who hears the rippling of rivers in these degenerate days will not utterly despair.”

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”

“Wildness is the preservation of the World.”

“I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.”

“Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand.”
