Earth Relationship Experiences -Awakening Your Many Sensory Intelligences

If you want to develop your consciousness beyond the conceptual confines of your culture and lineage you must go to Nature. Only Nature can unfold in you the ways of the Wise. Only Nature can provide you with the foundation and direction for your fulfillment. As you take steps to heal any estrangement from Nature you will develop joyful, responsible and attractive bonds with Nature that reduce your fears and loneliness. Deeply reconnecting with Nature shows you your wholeness and re-awakens your many forms of Natural Intelligences, Attractions, and Loves.

As you come to know again your own unity with Earth – which includes all of Earth’s creatures, and spirit, and eco-systems -you re-bond with […]

The Primal Force

“Nature and women hold the original primal force that arises spontaneously. This creative force is the first element and the ground from which all elements of life on Earth emerge. It is original wholeness and oneness. Nature and women hold these earliest elements of existence from which all manifestation arises.” – MaryAnn Copson

Turning To the Light

You enhance your self worth and understanding by identifying with Earth as your Self, your “other body”.
 

“The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers. It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth and death, in ebb and in flow. I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life. And my pride is from the life throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.”  […]

Herbalism As Eco-Therapy ~ Part 2

 The Way of The Wise Woman Wortcunner Work ~

Sensual Beings and Attractions

We are sensual beings – everything that we know about any part of the world – subtle to gross – is gathered through our sensory perceptions.

These days our senses have become dull – not necessarily because of our modern day world but because we have shut our self off from the source of our senses – Earth.  This has resulted in becoming disconnected from our natural rhythms and thus we have become somewhat handicapped in being able to access our full sensory potential.

By placing your self back into the ground of your beingness – back with Earth/Nature – you begin your process of reconnecting to your […]

Herbalism As Eco-Therapy- Part 1

Did you ever walk along outside and get a sense that you might have heard some message – or something?

Plants talk.  You know that by now. Plants continually are calling you to come join them in a journey through your mutli-dimensional awareness to the wholeness of yourself.

At its heart, herbal medicine is about taking the journey into deep healing for yourself. The plants have things to say to you about yourself, your personal healing, and how you can become the stewards of their secrets. They invite you to step into this deep healing and with their assistance carry it into yourself and in doing that take a step to heal the world.

Plants aren’t just remedies – they are consciousness. Each type of Plant carrying its […]

Nature Is Your Larger Body

“What we experience Nature experiences. And what Nature experiences we experience. You are Nature and Nature is you. All forms of conscious are one and the same. Just as every cell in your body is your body. Nature is your larger body. And you are Nature’s cell.

All consciousness -including Earth and beyond – are part of a global/universal community where we all share common sense (our commonly shared set of sensory perceptions) and we all have continuous and current communication flowing to, from, and through all for the well being of all.” ~MaryAnn Copson

Imbolc – One of the 8 Great Harvest Festivals

The Light Returning

From Yule to Imbolc darkness reigns until we notice the returning of the light. The fires of Imbolc signified both the fire of fertility within Earth and the fires of the sun. The nights gradually shorten and the days gradually lengthen. Bonfires and candles were used in rituals as magical encouragement of the sun. Candles were left burning in window all night or carried in procession to mark this seasonal passage.

Imbolc, is known by many names in different cultures – Oimealg, Candlemas Day, GroundHog Day, La Fheile Bride (Ireland),  Gwyl Mair Dechraur Gwanwyn (Wales),  Laa’L Bresshey (on the Isle of Man), Goel Dantolyon (Brittany).  

The word Imbolc is thought to mean “the milk […]

My New Year’s Wish For You

We can obtain no peaceful good without reestablishing our conscious awareness of our inherent natural being with Earth and Nature. It is not only that Nature plays a vital role for us and we play a vital role for Nature it is truly that neither of us is whole and complete without the other.

There is a difference between being “part of” and being “is”.

What we experience Nature experiences. And what Nature experiences we  experience. You are Nature and Nature is you. All forms of conscious are one and the same. Just as every cell in your body is your body. Nature is your larger body. And you are Nature’s cell.

All consciousness -including Earth and beyond – are part of a global/universal community where we all […]

The Turning of the Wheel of the Year – Winter Solstice

Mid-December is thus one of the most positively magical times of the year.  Things are possible during December’s darkening days that are not even dreamt of at other spokes of the Wheel of the Year.  We should use this magic as a vehicle for deepening our awareness of the world around us and preparing our souls for the ongoing pilgrimage of our lives.  A seeker of Wisdom in the thrall of Winter’s Solstice should consider their celebrations as a spiritual pilgrimage or even a quest, during which, through the disciplined use of the spiritual imagination, he or she may encounter one’s own truest self along the way and in communion with Spirit. Montague Whitsel

Winter Solistice this year of 2015 is on December solstice 2015: […]

Nature Meanderings – Relevance

“The natural world, having no spoken language, largely consists of nonverbal relationships.  …we biologically experience these relationships as emotions, senses, and feelings.” ~Dr. M. Cohen

Try this activity that shows the importance of multi-sensory knowledge: Place one of your hands in a bowl of very hot water while your other hand is place in a bowl of very cold water. After a minute,  plunge both of your hands into one bowl of lukewarm water. In that moment, the hand coming from the cold water signals our consciousness that the lukewarm water is hot, while the hand coming from the hot water signals our consciousness that the lukewarm water is cold. Try it and notice what happens.

I did this a couple of times. […]

The Nature of a Woman

“You are not a drop in the Ocean
You are the entire Ocean in a drop” ~Rumi

Nature and women hold the original primal force that arises spontaneously. This creative force is the first element and the ground from which all elements of life on Earth emerge. It is original wholeness and oneness. Nature and women hold these earliest elements of existence from which all manifestation arises.

It is critical to the spiritual strength of a woman to come to have a sense of all elements of existence as this facilitates the full integration of her power. A woman’s power being the development of the fullness of her consciousness.

It is key in the development of a woman’s consciousness that she has […]

Autumn Equinox~ Beginning Your Cycle of Healing

Nature naturally takes us through seasonal cycles of birth, growth, decline, death, and regeneration. By aligning our self with Earth’s natural cycles, we provide our self with a framework to help us grow and evolve as we release our Wounds and Shadows, complete our Initiations, and set our next Evolutionary Tasks. These Seasonal Cycle of Healing ~Rites of Passage and Initiations bring us to wholeness as we pass again and again through their rhythms and cycles.

Are You Sustainable?

Autumn is a time for harvesting. It is a time to clean out the old and make room to put up the fruits of the summer. We gather all of the results of our hard labors of the spring and summer and put them […]

Autumn Prayer

Autumn Prayer

Be patient.

Allow your energy to move inward and downward.

Concentrate your attention.

Focus your power.

Be orderly and efficient.

Be faithful to your direction and intention.

Match your pace and rhythm to that of Nature at this time.

Long, slow, steady, concentrated.

Be at peace.

It’s not about power it’s about grace.

Know your self.

Loosen your grip and work within the rhythm.

Let things take care of themselves.

Do what is before you to do.

Do what it is at hand.

–MaryAnn Copson

Wise Woman Wortcunner~Nature Being Safe Other ~Guardian Plant Friend

 

“The formation of attraction relationships helps any entity, including your self, to be in a more full, stable, and secure way. The greater number of balanced supportive relationships an entity has, the more stable is its being.” Michael Cohen

Our brains develop in relationship to others. When we feel valued, loved, understood non-judgmentally – we feel we matter- and this sense of safety and security forms a foundation of resilience on which to build our continuing development and evolution.

When we are in relationships that stabilize us around a trustworthy sense of  acceptance and support we learn to develop trust in our competence and mastery and interact in the world from our inner sense of connection and security.

Establishing a secure relationship […]
