I need to Earth myself.

In times of great stress, I earth myself, I take off my shoes and I feel the earth beneath my feet, I feel the hum of The Mother and it soothes me. If it is too cold or wet to walk barefoot in the veggie garden, I will plant things out in my kitchen garden. Avoiding the use of any tools I will make the holes by hand and plant whatever it is I have.

Today I have a packet of seeds the funeral home gave me when I collected Mum’s ashes.

I hadn’t kept the seeds for any particular reason, they were just there waiting for me to be ready to plant them.

I am so seriously stressed today internet that I need to vanish within myself.

I need to find that intuitive quiet space where the Goddess and I can whisper to each other.

I need to walk barefoot in the garden and I need to pray to my own Gods.

    HUGS honey. To make you smile, I had to rescue your vase the other day, one of my friends took a shine to it and it nearly disappeared into his car. There was alot of “ITS MINE” muttering.

    It’s an awful feeling to be so stressed that it consumes every moment. I hope today brings answers and action. And some nice dirt. x

      The garden was kind to me and took all my cares.

    I can relate Kim. I feel like that’s exactly what I should be doing right now when I’m feeling overwhelmed and dizzy with everything spinning around me.
    The seeds will be beautiful.
    Big hugs, I hope you find that place. xx

      I hope the seed grow nice flowers. There were some Californian Poppies in there which were high on Mum’s list of favourites. Their bright orange cheerfulness makes me smile. I hope you find your centre as well Barb.

    Sending many cyber hugs and much love your way. And yes, playing in the garden is a really good way of grounding yourself.

    I hope you had many lovely hours in your garden, digging in the dirt, walking around feeling the earth.
    I hope you were able to talk to your plants and relieve your stresses at least a little.
    x’s and o’s for you from me.
    I’ll be avoiding my garden, (which isn’t really mine), as much as possible for a while. Today’s strong gusty winds saw the beginning of the pollen season, and I’ve been sneezing and blowing and stuffing up since last night. I’ve used about a thousand tissues.
    There is blossom everywhere!
    I love spring, but she’s a b**** to live with.

    I know what you mean, Kim. I used to go out and “commune with my garden” when it all got too much, when I had a garden. Even a few minutes tending to the plants, touching them, smelling them, would bring me back to “now” and out of my head.

    I love watching seeds sprout into life. It still seems like such a miracle…

    What an anxious time for you all. I was so sorry to read about Evelyn’s seizures. Can’t think of one useful thing to say but I do send love and a world of good wishes. I’m sure you’ll have answers soon and will be able to DO something xxx

    The seeds are new life and hope. No matter what they turn out to be, they tell you that there is a tomorrow and a hope of beauty in your life. You are so wise to turn to mother earth for serenity and peace … she will bless you in return. My heart goes out to your … we all know the feelings of despair and how difficult it is to get out from under them. Be strong and follow your heart … you will find a way.
