My mom and I are in Portland, Oregon this week. It’s a big difference from NYC.
The trees are everywhere and the grass feels like the most luxurious shag carpeting. It’s been a beautiful week with beautiful weather.
This change in environment has been very therapeutic for us. Every day we have run barefoot on the grass and literally hugged a tree. Lots of detox and grounding going on.
Today we met a tree who insisted his name was Fred. We laid on the grass with our feet on the tree, and breathed deeply. As we were relaxing, I noticed that there was a tree grid. It was green, spider webby, and interconnected with the other trees. It was an exhilarating feeling to feel so grounded and protected by the trees.
The message from Fred, was that being still is healing. We should all take time to enjoy the simple pleasures of nature. And this will bring us to a state of gratitude.
It is so important to quiet the mind. If you cannot quite master the art of going within through meditation, then going out and becoming one with the earth, will definitely be a close second.
When we finished our nature connection, we were totally energized and yet very relaxed. It was therapeutic on many levels. But with all that, there’s still no place like home. I can’t wait to hug Celeste (my puppy).
