Light Tribe Earth
Take a deep breath. Feel the nature.
Nature is what is left when you walk away
from everything humans have created.
Freedom is what is left when you walk away from everything YOU have created to keep you from enjoying YOUR life.
I feel we are here to experience all the facets of life, and being human. There are infinite paths to freedom, so why not take some steps toward it?
Spending time in nature resets your natural systems.
Unplug. Nobody needs you 24/7. Let someone know where you're headed, or take a friend who can be quiet with you.
Find a place to explore, slowly. Take it all in, breathe deeply.
Notice your feet on the earth. Notice the scents and sounds all around you.
Watch water flow over rocks... Just... Be.
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend. - Albert Camus
Nature Provides Quiet
A quiet house and a quiet forest or lake are completely different.
Where can you go, so you can actually hear YOUR thoughts, ideas, and intuition?
Can you actually be quiet?
Watch the Wildlife
Practice presence by sitting still outside somewhere and watching the wildlife. Notice what they do, how they go about their day, how they communicate with each other. Learn from it.
Take care of Yourself, and the Earth
Bring what you need to be safe and protected in nature. Water, layered clothes, snacks... Leave no trace. Take only photos, leave only footprints.
Do your best to be quiet, and listen.
Find Your Discomfort Zone
What are you afraid of in the natural world? Is it a rational fear? Walk towards things you are uncertain about, learn about them, and release your fears.
Find the closest place away from it all
Arizona is an incredible state because it has so many climates. You can be in the Sonoran desert, on a mountain in the pine forest, skiing, or by lakes and rivers. What is the closest place to your home that you can feel like there are no people for miles?
The Salt River is home to a variety of Sonoran Desert wildlife, including horses, bobcat, coyote, roadrunner, roadrunner, jackrabbit, eagle, heron, egret, river otter, mountain lion... to name a few...
I enjoy sitting quietly by the water, listening and watching nature do what it does. It's incredible how loud things are when you are quiet!
Find your spot in nature and get your bare feet on the dirt. "Grounding" will literally recharge you. At the river's edge, the soil is damp, and cool. It's sort of amazing.
Thank you, thank you, thank you...
