The ground that is Her body.
Sitting down and putting your fingers in the wet moss, in the soil.
Grounding and centering.
Digging deep, deep into the earth.
Deep into Mama.
Feeling Her energy ground you as you breathe in Her scent.
You feel Her energy stir and rise, up up into your heart.
Becoming a part of you.
As you are a part of Her.
On the Wheel of Ana, Earth is situated in the west. It is the time of the Autumn Equinox. A time of balance. Or of realising that everything is not in balance, and taking the time to listen in and see how you want to move forwards.
The element of earth brings grounding and stability. It helps us slow down when we need to.
We call on Her as Gaia, Banbha, Mother Earth.
We can feel Her beneath us and within us. If we close our eyes and focus on the soles of our feet we can sense Her energy flowing into us, mingling with our own.
This is a great daily practice to do as it grounds us and brings us back to the present moment.
Working with the elements like this on a daily basis is what can make our lives truly magical. An appreciation for what is around us brings us more joy. It can help us return to the sense of awe of being alive. Sometimes we forget. Sometimes we get stuck in the grind of daily life.
Take a breath.
Feel the Earth beneath your feet.
And you are home.
With love, Elin xx
