Celebrating, Honoring, & Healing The Other Mother…Mother Earth

Thank you Mother Earth for all that you do, have done, and will do for us.

In the next couple of weeks, many of us will be celebrating the beloved holiday of Mother’s Day.  But before we begin to honor and celebrate our physical mothers, in this month of growing and gardening, I began to think about the importance of “Celebrating, Honoring, and Healing The Other MotherMother Earth”.

I began to think about all of the herbs and plants that are created to heal such as aloe which helps heal external burns, and sage, which helps clear blocked and negative energy.  Mother Earth also provides us with trees that help us to breathe and flowers that help soothe our senses through sight, smell, and touch.  I thought about the colors of flowers, which subtly impact our mood and other aspects of our mind, body, and spirit.

Mother Earth gives us so many gifts and ways to help, enrich, and heal ourselves and our lives.  Like a mother who is constantly providing for her children, Mother Earth has given often without asking for anything in return.  A great example of the selflessness of Mother Earth is the story of The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

Nowadays we hear a lot about recycling, re-using, and going “green”.  We are encouraged to do our part in the health and healing of our plant through external actions.  As I contemplated on the ways in which society is being more “earth friendly” and cutting down on pollution (harmful substances), I thought about the hybrid cars.  When we think of something being a “hybrid”, we think of it being a combination of distinct substances, usually 2 different substances.  It made me think about humans being composed of physical and spiritual forms…a hybrid of sorts.

Then I thought about the ways in which we are able to connect to both our humanity and our spirituality, ways in which we are able to be Led By The Spirit in our humanity. How our actions can be Spirit led and have a positive impact on the world around us. How our positive actions can cut down on and eliminate the “pollutants” (i.e. anger, disrespect, envy/jealousy, lack, etc.) that have had a negative impact on our world.

I was Divinely reminded, “as I heal, the soul of the Earth heals.”  Wow, what a great reminder that we are ALL connected, we are One with Universe (Uni = one, Verse = line).  As a systems-oriented clinician, I believe that one change in a system changes the whole system. Therefore, because we are one with the Universe, as I change, the system changes … the Universe changes.

A few years ago I read something that stated as my soul evolves so does the soul of the Earth.  I thought that was so powerful and exciting.  The fact that my presence and actions can have such an impact and make such a difference in the world is so exciting.  I was moved and even more inspired to increase my soul evolution, not just for my own personal growth but also for the evolvement of the soul of the world.

As I do my part in making sure my physical trash is separated (you know plastics, paper, garbage), I am also making a more conscious effort to recycle Love, Peace, Hope, Joy, Happiness, and Forgiveness and get rid of anger, bitterness, resentment, and the like.  I am doing my part in the evolution of my soul and the soul of the planet.

As we prepare to celebrate our physical mothers and women who have had a “motherly” influence and impact in our lives, let us take some time to Thank Mother Earth for all that she has done for us and do our part in being as good to her as she has been to us.

As you continue to Grow By The Spirit, allow Spirit to lead you to those areas and the ways that will help you nurture your health and in turn will help heal the world.

God Bless and Continue to Live By the Spirit.

I encourage you to share the ways in which you have and are helping to heal Mother Earth.
