Grounding in nature

It’s been a slightly stressful 30 hours or so. Mom called and asked me to rush her to the hospital last evening when something wasn’t right. I hate those trips to a hospital when it feels that you can’t quite drive fast enough and worry that something could happen on the way there. So I prayed… I prayed a lot so we would get there safely and so she would get the medical help she needed. Archangels Michael and Raphaël were invited along for the ride to help keep us safe on the road and to help Mom with whatever healing she might need.

On the 30 minute drive I had her sniffing my Young Living Peace & Calming essential oil. It helped her stay much calmer and that helped calm me down as well. It was my daughter’s idea, as I was heading out the door that it might be very beneficial for Mom… and it sure was.

Today we found out that Mom had suffered a small heart attack. She will be staying in the Critical Care Unit at the hospital for the time being until she gets more testing and medical help that’s needed.

By late afternoon, with little sleep today and good dose of stress and anxiety that I was feeling, I felt totally drained, like someone had pulled my energy plug. I knew that I had to go and fill my energetic cup.  It was getting late and I really wanted to head outside for a short walk in the forest and take some photos. It was such a beautiful day here. So out I went with my iPad in hand to take photos. I spent at least 30 minutes out in nature… out in the forest… and on our property taking photos and remembering to breathe deeply all that fresh autumn air. It seemed like a pretty simple thing for me to do, but I knew it would help bring me back to myself, to the present moment. I felt so much more grounded in my energy by the time I came back into the house. My load felt lighter, my worries lessened as I walked connecting in nature and praying for Mom. She has had a lot on her plate since also having a fall in August, breaking her hip and going through surgery. She was just beginning to feel a bit better from that and now this happened. Its hard seeing my parents ageing. One is never ready enough for what each day might bring.

So here’s a few more autumn photos from today… just because… I needed it.

Today I found the peace and calmness that I was seeking out in nature. I connected with that deep unlimited source energy and it helped to reconnect and ground me in ways that I desperately needed. Tomorrow will require yet another healthy dose of something positive and energizing for me to give me an ever bigger boost.

You can find more of my Canadian fall photos here. I invite you to Autumn’s Beauty a blog post that I wrote recently.

    thanks for sharing the great photos. I like the tree poses. For me it’s a great reminder of the importances to remain grounded in order to better cope with life’s ups and downs. Xox

  2. I hope your mother is doing much better today, Suzanne. Today is my oldest son’s birthday…he would have been 34 years old, had he lived. In my mind he is still that 10 year-old bright-eyed kid. I took a walk through a couple of cemeteries and took some pictures of the things that caught my eye the most. (I’ve posted them on FB if you want to take a peek) Getting outside in the fall air is most definitely refreshing, and meandering through old cemeteries, for me at least, gives one pause to reflect on life.

    I, too love the shadow photo of you leaning against the tree… “Tree Pose” if you will! Namaste

  3. You’re so fortunate to have all this beauty around you, lovely photos. I hope your mum recovers well. Lots of love

  5. Awesome photos, Suzanne! No wonder you got into the zone of relaxation and peace with that kind of accessibility to nature. I particularly enjoyed the picture of your shadow on the tree trunk, almost as if you transported yourself there…
    With Archangels Michael and Raphaël’s help, I am sure your Mom will do just fine! May Their wings keep enveloping you during this challenging time!
