Land wants to serve its purpose in the same way humans want to serve theirs. All of Creation is striving towards self-expression. Places offer energy transmissions, teachings, love and wisdom. Land holds memories—energetic imprints of the ceremonies, offerings, community gatherings and elemental configurations.
How do we listen to the spirit of land?
First, we need to enter into the space of our heart and feel. Meditation, drumming, rattling, humming, singing, quiet presence are ways I open. When I began making flower essences, I had to find ways to open the portal of my heart to the language of nature in order to connect with the spirits of the flowers and plants. Sometimes it was quite a process to let down my guard and move into my feeling nature.
Once you feel present and peaceful and un-attached to outcome, ask the spirit of land to speak. Ask the nature elementals to speak. Listen. Remember, you are listening to the language of nature. Nature speaks through synchronicity, awareness, signs, symbols, and spiritual messages. What does the spirit of the land say through your thoughts (telepathy), through your body sensations, through feelings, through words, and through visions or a knowing? Open to your own personal direct experience. Use your imagination to engage with the energy as it appears for you. You may sense a being of great beauty and peace.
My most powerful ally as a nature intuitive is my childlike imagination. My inner-child sees through what is masked or phony to the joy and presence of what is True. Engage with your imagination by pretending that you sense, see, feel, know what the spirit of the land needs and wants. Watch your body for all signs of change when you ask questions.
Much of our land, and our homes, carries old memories and imprints of emotional turmoil, trauma, ghosts, distorted energy, and geopathic stress. If you need help in clearing the subtle energy of land and renewing its energy, consider a land clearing.
