Tap into the magic of nature
Some of our favourite experts provide advice on how to get back in tune with nature and use its energy to benefit your life…
Find your harmony
Laura Morrice, an energy healer, spiritual life coach and best selling author, says the key to living a spiritually-fulfilled life is being in balance with nature
So many problems that people face today are because we’ve lost so much of our connection to nature. Even during the last two generations, there has been a drastic decline in how much time kids spend outdoors, and that’s just kids!
Our modern way of living has accelerated so fast; we aren’t designed to not be in flow with our natural environment. On the contrary, we are meant to live in harmony with it. It’s no secret that when you get your hands dirty (with soil), it releases microbes that can stimulate serotonin – our happy hormone. Walking in nature reduces stress levels; walking barefoot naturally grounds your energies by harmonising them with
mother earth; the list goes on.
Our recent ancestors still lived in harmony with the environment and seasons. They understood the importance of being in the flow of nature and its positive effect on our overall wellbeing. Nature is not something we should alienate ourselves from because we are part of it.
While modern cities can make it hard to escape the concrete jungle, there are still things we can do. We can start by stripping away the layers of false human conditioning to reveal who we really are under that manufactured surface. Your higher self remembers who you are and will help you navigate your way. But first, you’ve got to show up and commit to change before the universe can support you.

Use springtime energy to clear
Spiritual declutterer Carolyn Creel, founder of the CLEAR method, believes the magic of spring provides the perfect opportunity to help clear your mind and home
I like to say a clear home is the sign of a clear mind. But it’s not just about decluttering things. It’s about decluttering every area of life slowly and with support – my new book The CLEAR Method or my CLEAR method sessions are a great place to get started.
I believe our home is an extension of self. When your home and environment are cluttered and stuck, you are cluttered and stuck. The clearer your energy field and home, the more receptive you become. I mean, doesn’t it feel amazing at this time of year when you can finally open all the windows and let the new fresh air in?
It’s not just our spaces that need clearing, getting out in nature daily is a great way to clear the mind; and I like
to really notice everything, if my dogs allow. One ritual I love to do in spring is cloud watching. I love watching clouds and the shapes that appear in the sky and being able to predict where they are going next. It’s such a beautiful and joyous way to take time out with family or on your own.

Listen to Mother Nature
Looking for a new book to add to your collection? Wake Up Mother is a celebration of Mother Earth and our own individual journeys to become a mother
Wake Up Mother is nourishing medicine for the mother inside of you. You have a vast, untapped, fertile field of mother energy, regardless of what or how you choose to mother, and it’s just waiting to be honoured. This inspiring new book is a collaboration of 14 powerful women sharing their different perspectives on the journey to mother.
Wake Up Mother aims to shine a light on the wounds and the shadows of the mother, in turn celebrating all that is birthed in the cosmic womb of creation – the future generations, the businesses, the space and communities we hold, the ideas, products and services we create and the great Mother Earth we reside on. Our coming together is an honouring of the way of the circle and the weaving of creation and all that is mother. We are a movement, who want to support other mothers as they wake up to the possibility of change.
“With no instruction manual on being a mother, all we have is the opportunity to learn from the shared, diverse experiences of our own sisters, and the sisters that came before us,” says curator Sarah Lloyd. “Wake Up Mother is a gathering, a space-holding and a sharing of strong, feminine energy in book form. The women who felt called to be a part of this project weave together tales of their interesting, emotional and triumphant rites of passage through pain and towards healing, to help you shine a light on the unseen mother that you are.” Find out more at wakeupmother.com
