- Reconnect with nature.
Being outside is an essential component of any energy medicine practice, as it helps to ground you and clear, balance and charge your chakras. Being connected to the energy of Mother Earth is something our culture is steadily losing, but you can reclaim that peace and joy that comes from being in tune with nature. You just have to get outside!
With summer days being so long, you have no excuse not to head outdoors. Even if it’s just a walk after dinner, being outside in the fresh air and sunlight is healing for your body, mind, and soul. Study after study shows that being outside can help to ease anxiety and depression, and decrease physical healing time. Being outside in sunlight exposes you to vitamin D, which most people do not get enough of, elevates mood, and reduces stress.
Take a walk or visit a vista point near your home and take in a beautiful sunset, walk in a forest or meadow, hike a mountain trail, smell some flowers, or simply sit in a nearby park. Head to an outdoor movie or concert, or have a picnic. One of my favorite ways to get outside is to sleep under the stars, which is easier to do during the warmer summer months and is a great way to improve your sleep and open your soul to the vastness of the universe. Even if you work indoors all day, as I do, you can still spend 7 or 8 (or more!) hours every night outside, basking in the moonlight.
And speaking of the moon, don’t forget to walk at night too, especially under a full moon: moonlight is a spiritual necessity for you as it charges and balances your eighth chakra, the seat of your Higher Self.
There is no wrong way to spend time in nature!
