As I mentioned earlier this week, the earth is the most grounding element we can access. The word "grounding" has its origins with the earth. Apparently, in witchcraft, to ground yourself is to psychically reinforce your connection with the Earth by reopening an energy channel between your aura and the ground (source). The earth provides us the main tool to keep us physically grounded: gravity. Then it provides us a ground to walk on in which we can receive the enormous energy of the earth which spiritually and mentally grounds us.
Because there is usually so much going on in our lives in the fall, a great way to learn to go with the flow is to get in touch with the earth and nature. By being outside, we can get in sync with nature and be able to go along with the ebb and flow of the season. Some great ways to get out there and experience nature are going apple or pumpkin picking, raking and/or playing in the fallen leaves, taking a walk in the woods or a park, cleaning up your garden and harvesting, and lastly, go leaf peeping! Leaf peeping is going to see the fall foliage and some people do it on a long drive and others go out to the woods or mountains. Appreciating, admiring and enjoying nature - that's good stuff.
What activities are you going to do this fall to be in touch with nature?
