Intentions are great to have when working with nature and land. Yet, that is not enough. You need consent.
When you ask permission, or consent, from the land spirits and invisible beings of nature, you will know that your intentions are not just yours but are welcomed by the beings that live there.
I call this nature consciousness. Nature consciousness flourishes when you are attuned to nature when making decisions, and when you are open to invitations to co-create with nature and the spirits of place.
I first became aware of this issue when I felt land being “used” as a backdrop or location to host events. The land spirits and ancestors that lived there did not alway seem very keen to participate in these events. At times, I sensed that the land did not want an event to happen at all. The event was disruptive to the place. Or, worse yet, were events that happened without permission and the people hosting it never cleaned up their energy afterwards—emotional, mental, spiritual, and such. This energetic debris congested the land and created heaviness among the elementals and nature spirits. The land spirits felt affected by stagnation, lack of respect, confusion, and in extreme cases violence.
When the land and its spirits are considered as an integral part of the event, the event is showered with beautiful energy of the fairies, nature spirits, elementals, ancestral spirits of land.
Be nature conscious with all your land decisions…
Do the land spirits want your upcoming event held on the property?
Is there a specific area that is best for an event and an area that needs rest?
Is this the optimal garden location according to the fairies and nature spirits?
So, if you want to host an event, offer healing treatments, or change something in the landscape, build a house, make sure you ask permission from the land spirits so you will create the optimal situation for everyone. Check in well before you want to make plans. Make sure you are acting from a place of nature consciousness—in alignment with your land and nature. Your land spirits will thank you in many unexpected ways including bringing harmony, peace, and love to all your events.
