Nature’s Magic

This coming Wednesday is the Autumn Equinox, a time when the nights become longer than the days. Here in Southern Ontario we’ve been experiencing summer’s last hoorah.

But change is in the air. My comforter has come out of hiding and my socks and sweaters are gradually making appearances.

I’m surprised at how easily I’m adjusting considering how much I love summer. It helps knowing that Autumn has its’ own special beauty.

Nature has a way of renewing me.

Have you noticed that when it rains, all your senses come to life? You can get lost in the smell of the air, the sound of the rain pounding on the roof, the sight of the drops splashing high in the street and the refreshing feeling of the moisture in the air.

If you’re feeling sluggish being in nature brings you back to life. If you’re feeling down it uplifts you. If you’re feeling scattered nature focuses you on the present moment.

There are so many ways to connect with the healing power of nature. Some of them are right outside your front door.

Open your window and invite the breeze to caress your skin.

Stand in the sunlight and feel it’s warmth.

Listen to the birds first thing in the morning and let their song delight you.

Gaze at the moon and find comfort in its presence.

Lie down in your back yard and feel the earth supporting you.

Hang your sheets on the line and then luxuriate in their aroma.

Walk around your neighborhood at night and discover the cover of darkness.

Nature is always there waiting for your arrival. Next time you are not quite feeling like yourself, go outside and let nature work its magic.
