Dear friends, dear men and women,
It fills me with joy to be with you on this clear morning. We are old friends. Our paths have crossed in time and space many times before. Feel our old friendship; we are part of the same family. Cherish for a moment this feeling of familiarity, of coming Home. Simply relax and let go of all tension inside yourself. Visualize how the tension flows into the Earth and is neutralized. Feel how your body relaxes and becomes heavier. Receive the healing energy returning from Mother Earth and let it encircle your feet and your legs and flow into your waist and belly. Feel supported by Earth; you are safe.
Feel the rhythm of Earth; it is slow and steady. This is the rhythm you seek. Your soul comes from a different realm, and when it descends it has to adjust to the rhythm of Earth. Your soul has to dwell in a body and has to learn how to use a mind, and it can become confused because of that. The soul is on a learning path. It is not just you as a human who is learning, your soul is learning and growing as well.
In your soul, you carry painful memories about being on Earth and, therefore, it is not evident to you that you can trust Earth and surrender yourself to it. There can be a blockage in your body preventing you from relaxing and feeling safe here. This blockage is an energy, it is not something just physical. In reality, this blockage was not caused by Earth, but by what happened to you in the human world: the negativity you experienced here, the pain of rejection and not fitting in. This has made it difficult for you to feel at home here.
I want to remind you of the true nature of Mother Earth. She is an angel herself. Think of the beauty of the forests, the oceans, the flowers. That is the true nature of Being on Earth, and you are part of this majestic reality. You are like a flower yourself, but a flower cannot open unless it is firmly rooted. You have to feel at home on Earth in order to be able to express yourself, your light. So I now invite you to connect to Earth, the angel that she is. Feel her energy deeply within your body; you are her child and you can relax.
Imagine you are now walking in a beautiful place in nature. It can be a forest, or near the ocean, or in the desert, and make this vision very real and alive for yourself. Feel the elements of nature, the wind, the sun, the air. Feel the ground beneath your feet. Then sit down and put your hands on the ground. Allow Earth to affect you, to heal you, and to remind you of your partnership with her. Your soul wants to be here, even though your soul has been wounded on Earth, especially by the fear and the struggle that is present in human society. But as a human being, you are also connected to nature and to the harmony and the rhythm that is there. And if you embrace nature, both without and within, you can clearly hear the message of your soul.
So you are still sitting on Earth. Feel how an energy comes to you from above. You are very well able to receive it, because you are now connected to Earth and her energy. These two energies are meant to be together. Let this energy from your soul now shine on you like a sun. Just enjoy it for a moment.
Often, when you connect, or try to connect to your soul, your mind interferes. You want to have concrete, practical information about your life. But to receive real information, you have to first shift your consciousness, because the need for information, the need to know what to do often arises from fear. You first have to relax completely and be in a state of alert fantasizing or imagining. So go into that state now.
Imagine you are completely free, not bound by the laws of human society. You are an angel, and like a butterfly you go from flower to flower. Ask yourself: ”What gives me joy in my life?” Do not think of the results it brings to you, just focus on the feeling of joy and inspiration. You can receive inspiration from very simple things like taking a walk or having a quiet moment for yourself. It is important that you recognize the language of your soul. It does not speak in an obvious voice that you are used to. You are used to speaking very sternly to yourself. You criticize yourself a lot. You have a mental picture of how you should be and you constantly compare yourself with it and feel that you are failing. But it is in fact the judging that is the real problem. This type of judging, or this tone of voice, does not come from nature.
The language of your soul is very different. It is very gentle. It offers suggestions, but never wants to force you to do anything. So simply ask your soul: “What is it I need right now?” And you might receive the answer as an energy and not necessarily in words. Let go of all expectations. As a human, your problems are often caused by the fact that you have a blind spot. You have some persistent beliefs of which you are not really aware and your soul wants you to step out of those beliefs. This means you have to let go of your deepest convictions and be open to something entirely new. You have to let yourself be surprised by your soul.
So whenever you have a quiet moment and you long to connect with your soul, let go of your mind and connect in a spontaneous, playful way. That is the way of nature. You can see it in all the animals and plants that live on Earth. They joyfully go along with the rhythm that is theirs. They do not think of the future, yet they are perfectly aligned. You are part of Earth and part of nature.
