Embody Wisdom with Forest Bathing

0 comments

Are you feeling the calling and the need to escape from all the busyness and static noise of the world? Have you felt the Divine guiding you to slow down and return to your natural body versus running your life at 900 miles an hour? If you are like most spiritually aligned people, the answer is yes. 

Human beings are being called to stop doing and start being. There are two types of people, human doings (mental thinking) and human beings (feeling stillness and presence). Are you ready to be a human who is being?

Connecting to the wisdom and wellness of the forest…

I grew up in the countryside, surrounded by miles and miles of forest land. My family’s home was only about 100 feet from the edge of the forest. Wildlife was a natural part of my childhood and helped me keep my sanity while growing up with a left – brain family. Being born spiritually sensitive and an empath, I was nothing but grateful for being surrounded by the magic forest. As a child, I could relate to the trees, animals, creeks, rocks, sounds of nature, and the spirits of the forest more than I could relate to human beings. This was often my freedom escape from the physical, single dimensional world.

When the energy of the physical world would become too much for me, I would escape to the forest and find a place to sit and simply connect to the essence of the forest with the trees, animals, and the earth elements all around me. This is how I learned to embody stillness as a dimension and to clear my body and energy field of toxic physical experiences with the wisdom and energy of the forest. This was like a magical experience for me along with feeling great and helping me with the deep anxiety I had as a child through my early adulthood. Additionally, this helped me to become a clearer channel of spirit and forest realms. My escape was always the forest and is still to this day. 

I would later learn this is what is known as “forest bathing”. Forest bathing is not taking a bath out in the forest but rather it is sitting in the forest among the wild wisdom and frequency while embodying stillness and the natural world through the inside of your body and energy. This means not being on your cell phone or reading a book, but being one with the forest and the magical spirit of Gaia.

The unfolding wisdom of being with forest bathing…
I always notice the space between when I’m in the presence of the “being-ness” within the wisdom of forest. The awareness, the practice of stillness, and the wisdom of being out in the forest is what I have done for years. As to what to focus on when I stepped into the forest nature realms, that was another experience. The forest elders and nature spirits guided me inside the spiral wisdom of nature and the movement of frequency. In nature, nothing is created or moves in a straight line. When you experience this awareness, it removes thinking. The spirit of the forest would lovingly ask me what I needed, and the wisdom experience would unfold. The forest has become my sanctuary. It is the place where I go for deeper wisdom through my experience on Earth.  It has become one with me, and now it’s what I am and what I do. In those early years, the wisdom of nature was not just helping me to focus and concentrate; it was helping me remember the parts of my being that are the same frequency tones of nature. The source of who I am; the fire and drum tones of the shaman, and sacred medicine within me.

When you notice the space between, you are experiencing the wisdom through the soul and the being within all of your surroundings. Stillness with forest bathing becomes more than a practice of sitting in silence; it becomes a place of frequency and wisdom, when you allow the space between to teach and show you the way of being within your creation pathway. The approach is to remember who you are and why you have traveled to the earth plane. 

The space between is everywhere. The mission of love and awareness is open to you when you are willing to notice and step out of the conditional confines of the thinking mind. When one is in the confines of the thinking root of the mind, one does not see or feel the physical or the energetic surroundings in the human and spirit world. Return to the natural spirit body and remembering the soul.

A tool of focus for going deep while forest bathing…
Place your hand on your heart, slow your breathing, and feel your heartbeat through your hand. Bring your breathing to the rhythm of your heartbeat and feel the presence of your spiritual heart arriving throughout your body. Feel the soothing waves of love cleansing every part of your body. Allow the experience to show you the way versus you trying to take control. At the point of taking control, you have left the heart and returned to the “cellar enclosure” of the thinking mind. Return to the heart and the waves of love by focusing your breathing through the spiritual heart. Place your energetic surrendering-self in the center of the waves of love and move through the ebb and flow. This is where you start to connect to the wisdom of your new reality from the wisdom of the heart and the experience of stillness, grace, and presence. Breathe and stay with the experience until it is complete. When you are complete, take a moment longer to stay in silence, then give gratitude to the spiritual heart and notice the essence of love, you feel expanding through your body. You are complete.

Soul Blessings,

Boundless God – Loving What Is…

Does the word God make you cringe or bring up pain from the past for you?

Over many years of guiding and helping thousands of people through their healing journey, the deepest pain people hold within themselves is their misunderstanding of God. This leads them to also misunderstand their inner self. I noticed this the most in 2017, because people were losing their faith with regards to everyday spiritual consciousness. Last year, I taught several courses on God Consciousness –  Sophia and the God Self. The childhood stories I heard from people through those courses were shocking, but in some ways not shocking, more seemingly expected. This would make me feel sad and my eyes would fill with tears, as I would hear about the pain they had emotionally embodied from their experiences. It was, however, illuminating to see people healing their relationship with the consciousness and the frequency of God which then allows them to have a deeper and open relationship with their inner self on their terms through those courses.

People around the world have different views and experiences with God.

What I have discovered is that the majority of people who have a relationship with the humanly, commercial created God, whether that be a good one or a painful one, is based on what they have been taught or been told. What that God is conditionally versus their own experience with the Universal God frequency through their own inner spirit.

I have always been grateful this time around on Earth, that I did not grow up in a family household with religion, spirituality, or metaphysical awareness ( I guess it’s called New Age now, I can’t keep up with the trends); it was never talked about or discuss in my family’s home. I was a soul that was born with a spiritual consciousness of knowing from birth. I always felt the presence of God and Spirit through my own inner spirit as a part of who I am. I kept this deeply hidden, but I had an ever expanding and evolving relationship with God and the realms of Spirit. This was not always easy and I felt different from the other kids and adults around me because of my spiritual sensitivity. I had a consistent, loving, beautiful dialogue from the realms of Spirit happening pretty much all the time within me throughout my childhood.

My relationship with God became much deeper as a young child while I was planting and working in my childhood garden. Over time, I began to experience a dialogue with the frequency intelligence of God through the center of my inner spirit. This allowed me to have a deeper connection with myself even at a young age as this unfolded. This helped me to know, even though I was different, that I would be OK.

To me, God had always been a natural inner ‘IS-NESS’ – an inner mixture of who we are as part of the frequency of infinite love in its true universal presence. This has been my experience of God from the beginning.

When I was 11 or 12 years old I decided to experience “the church”.  In church, as they started to talk about God, I felt this controlled, dense, and fear based, a mental container like energy about an outside ‘he’/ God. I felt sick and felt a dark manipulating underlying agenda. I realized in that very moment, the church, the fear, and the humanly created controlled religion God was not for me. This was not the same God, I had always loved and known through my inner spirit. I returned to my garden and the natural loving dialogue with God that continues even to this day. Although my childhood garden has long grown over and I moved many miles away from my childhood home, I still return to my garden through my inner spirit to have conversations with God, the ‘IS-NESS’, as the inner illumination mixture of the center of my soul.

There is no one way to experience God and my experience does not have to be your experience. But what I do know is, God is an infinite consciousness and a formless loving frequency intelligence that lives within all of us as an inner presence, as a part of who we are, the mixture. God is not on the outside of us controlling, fear basing and calling the directions. It is you who is responsible for the plan of your soul’s destiny based on its creation for your mission of the collective.

To truly live with the presence of God through our inner spirit, we must first experience and understand the infinite as an embodiment and a life force of love through all experiences; as they are interconnected as our ‘formless’ presence of awareness. This is a matter of connecting your heart, spirit and the presence of God as one to arrive at your inner spirit self. We are then experiencing the presence of God as a boundless love of oneness of who we are. Notice the ONE looking through into oneness.

Love & infinite grace,
Eddie

Returning to the Innocence of the Beloved

0 comments

No matter what has happened in your life, you always have an invitation from love. Love is not limited or “conditionalized” in our experience. We never have to earn or prove who we are in order to be loved; love is infinite. The present moment is love and we, ourselves, in true nature are the present moment, therefore we are the voice frequency of love. It is simply what we have always been, underneath it all. This is our innocence. It has been buried underneath the density experiences of human conditions and limitations of love, which silences the voice (of love).

The silencers of the voice of love come from our lesson experiences, fears, listening to ‘belief’ identities of the systematic ‘thinking’ ego, and the separation from the ever expanding ‘truth’ of the heart. As we dive deep into the full expression of our lesson experiences along our earth journey and swim the channel of the Nile from the thinking mind, to the opening entrance of the feeling and intelligence of the heart, we return to the boundless love of what has always been. We have then returned to the intimacy of our innocence and begin hearing and listening to the voice of love. We rediscover the difference between belief versus truth. Belief is the creation and control of someone else’s experience, something that has already happened from the past, but we live in the present moment. Inner truth is the present moment and the voice of love, which is the formless experience aligned with your own wisdom and knowledge for your work with humanity, the reason you are here now.

But, how do we begin our way back to the voice of love and the boundless innocence of our true heart expression?

I sat with this question for a moment in my heart and felt how do I put this into the words that are arriving through what I have experienced in my own infinite journey and reconnecting to my inner spirit? I heard Alista, one of the shamanic elders guides I work with say, “The experience and wisdom you are looking for is in the Rose Garden.” Which is a sign there are multiple experiences about to happen beyond the physical experience of being in the Rose Garden. So begins my twenty-minute, walking, journey to the community Rose Garden.

This Rose Garden is one of my favorite places to be because it illuminates love from the hundreds and thousands of roses in the garden. Plus, Rose Medicine is incredibly healing for opening the heart and pours out deep loving wisdom for the wellbeing of our lives and humanity.

As I cross the walking bridge  into the Rose Garden I could feel and hear Kuan Yin, the goddess of compassion, walk through my heart and saying, “Welcome! Notice the expression of love and wisdom radiating through your heart as you begin your journey. Welcome to the experience. You are here for the wisdom through the space between.”  She points in the direction of the back side of the Rose Garden which faces the woods. When I walked by a group of trees, I felt the love and awareness of Gaia – the Earth Mother as if the earth was pouring out harmony and grace with my arrival. I sat down on a short stone edge for a grouping of roses. I removed my shoes and socks placing my feet on the green dew covered grass. I thought to myself, “ I might as well do some Earthing and Shamanic breathwork while I am here, waiting for the arrival of wisdom for my writing piece.

The more I started to connect to the earth with the Shamanic breathwork, I felt the opening of one shared space with the earth and I heard Gaia say through a deep vibration in the heart, “Listen and notice the natural path through my heart. What do you feel?”

“I feel stillness, expansion, compassion and love. Its moving through the full experience of my body, as if my body is the entire experience of the natural path through your heart, Gaia!”, I said.

I could feel her smile with ease and compassion. She then said, “Listen.”

I took a moment, to deeply listen beyond the physical plane and let myself arrive at the back of my heart, into the stillness matrix. I even listened deeply to the sound of stillness, beyond the language meaning.  I could hear and see Alista playing a drum with the rhythm tones of the energy field around my heart and my own heartbeat. Through this alignment I could feel the frequency of the words Gaia spoke to me as one shared space, feeling my own heart as one in the same with the Earth Mother. I was feeling the soothing experience of centering and grounding with the frequency of nature’s stillness wisdom through my heart.

At that moment on the surface, it was as if the birds currently singing, turned up their volume and it sounded like, in that moment, there were many more of them. This created a deep, flowing, frequency in my heart of expansion, like my heart became the full  size of the universe – one still space of listening.

Then my attention both physically and energetically was on two Robins at the edge of the woods, who were feeding. My focus was on what they were doing to find their food. They would turn their heads slightly towards the earth to deeply listen while being still in the present moment, then they would pull a bug or worm out of the ground. After I watched them for a while, they both made eye connect with me at the same time and I realized they were the main teaching guides for the wisdom
I needed.

To arrive at the entrance of opening the heart with the presence moment of boundless love, we must listen deeply for the feeling vibration of the voice of love.  By listening in and through stillness, as a natural source of nurturing and feeding the open of love, we swim our way into the cave entrance of the spiritual heart and experience the returning (maybe for the first in this lifetime) of the “innocence of the beloved”. You are the experience – the beloved of one shared space. This is not a discovery, this is who you have always been, underneath it all.

Humanity needs you to show up in the physical with who you have always been, underneath it all. You are the innocence of the beloved.

Love,

Eddie
