Animal Medicine & the Sit Spot
My animal medicine today. The beautiful, majestic, delicate dragonfly. In forest therapy we are encouraged to have a sit spot that we visit everyday. Today I came upon this beautiful creature that has now left it’s body. I am blessed to live rurally near the ocean, where each day when I visit my now best nature friend, I receive clarity and peace. The plants, trees, birds and animals speak with me and offer healing and support. I encourage you to take the time to slow down, connect with nature and yourself, and see and feel what you are noticing.
I look forward to this practice and if I am unable to sit with my nature friends on a particular day, I notice I am not as grounded and clear. Since beginning this practice in August I no longer experience anxiety when I drive. Something I have dealt with for years especially while visiting the city. Forest therapy is known for relieving stress and anxiety, lowering blood pressure and strengthening the immune system! It is such a simple practice.
Today dragonfly is teaching me about the delicateness of life. Embrace change and follow your heart! Find a special spot in nature and take time to connect with it and yourself! Nature is our greatest teacher and healer..
