There is a big difference between seeing beauty, and feeling dazzled by it. Being amazed by what you see uplifts your body, mind, heart and spirit. Beauty is the experience of love; the more you are dazzled by the beauty of life, the more love will flow through it.
“The radiance in some places is so great as to be fairly dazzling... every crystal, every flower a window opening into heaven, a mirror reflecting the Creator.” ~ John Muir
To dazzle your senses all you need to do is spend time in nature where there is an infinite supply of beauty. When you walk in a forest remember to connect with the green lungs of Mother Earth. Breathe deeply to become dazzled by the gift of oxygen.
Your five senses make it possible to be dazzled by beauty. Use your sense of sight to see what is beautiful; use your sense of smell to enjoy nature’s sweet fragrance; use your sense of touch to feel the earth beneath your bare feet; use your sense...

Your true nature is one with the earth. It is a symbiotic relationship between mother nature and human nature. Oneness is the realization that the earth and all of her inhabitants are in this human experience together to create a balanced way of life.
“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Living in harmony with nature is at the core of a balanced life. When you have a healthy body, creative mind, loving heart and free spirit, you feel at one with nature. Taking care of yourself and the earth comes naturally when you’re in a state of balance.
Your body and the earth are your two greatest gifts because without them you wouldn’t be here. Just as the earth is home to billions of life forms, your body is home to billions of bacteria, viruses and fungi that serve to keep your body healthy. You can experience oneness with nature by taking care of your gut microbiome and the...

Generosity and service have identical roles with a shared purpose. Being generous means giving from the heart, and service is about taking inspired action. One role frees the other to keep generosity flowing.
“A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things that renew humanity.” ~ Buddha
Being generous makes the world a better place. Acts of service go a long way towards uplifting humanity. When you care more about what you can give than what you can get, you're making a positive difference in the world. It's one of those qualities that makes life more fun and fulfilling.
Be generous with your body by giving it attention. Check in with your body throughout the day to find out what it needs to feel good. Your body is in service to your physical journey every moment of your life; you must service it with care to last a lifetime.
You are conditioning your mind to let go through generosity....

Everything you need to thrive comes from the earth. In fact, your body is made up of the same elements that are found in nature. Like a flower that blooms among so many others, you're here to grow and flourish by staying connected to Mother Earth.
"Until a man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favorable comparison with the products of nature, the living cell of a plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life.” ~ Thomas Edison
Mother Earth provides exactly what you need to heal, lower stress, reduce inflammation, boost your immune system, and stay healthy. Like Hippocrates said: "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be they food." That means organic whole foods, herbs, and spices from the earth are the best natural medicine.
One way to connect is by standing or walking barefoot on the earth. When your skin...

Self-trust begins when you realize what your body needs to thrive, and provide it. Our bodies depend on Mother Earth for oxygen, water, food, and shelter. This basic interconnectedness is the source of physical well-being.
“The body never lies.” ~ Martha Graham
The combination of a furry friend and the great outdoors is a health prescription you can trust to elevate your well-being.The only side effects are a deeper connection with your four-legged companion and Mother Nature.
Forest Bathing is a practice that supports the immune system. Simply by walking among the trees your health will be enhanced by the wood essential oils being emitted in the air. Strolling through a forest also strengthens all of your senses, including intuition.
Listen to what your body is saying. It's always speaking to you through symptoms and sensations. Your body could be directing you to spend more time outdoors because on this...
