Q5: Day at the beach, no clothes, with a friend.
Diagnosis: Relationship to Nature is strong reflected in responses to Q1 and Q4, but instability in daily life-thought patterns diminishes grounding effect. Intense variety in responses to Q1-4 reflects divergent energies that may be better focused through Earth-rootedness exercises, resulting in deeper, broader benefits from Eco-experiences, followed by improvements in sense of security and balance. Gaining objective knowledge of Nature’s Systems may also improve sense of freedom and mobility.
#1: Read this by John Muir, “Here is a calm so deep, grasses cease waving….wonderful how everything in wild nature fits into us, as if truly part and parents of us. The sunshines not on us, but in us. The rivers flow not past us, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.”
#2: Soundings: Go to a nearby park where you can feel relatively safe and comfortable. If you like, bring a friend. Find a place off-trail where you can sit, preferably near running water or tall trees. Sit down, get comfortable, relax your shoulders, close you eyes, raise your head. Imagine sunlight traveling through your spine extending upwards towards the sky and downwards into the soil. Feel the energy glow outward though your chest, tickling your chin, warming your cheeks. Feel the warmth travel down your arms, legs, and out through your fingertips, knees and feet. Relax your face. Deeply inhale through your nose and exhale. Now imagine that the sunlight streaming through your body makes a sound. Make that sound. Make the sound until you hear it drift across the soundscape around you. Then stop and let it settle. Repeat as necessary.
