The healing power of the mother earth is strongly present in Sedona Arizona and the Verde Valley. This is a magic and a presence that is felt in many parts of the Southwest, unique to the soul of this land.
It is certainly one of the most beautiful lands in the world. A place not only rich in color and texture, but where one is surrounded by the ancestral forces of rock and people. It's easy to have that experience of having left the ordinary world behind and stepping into the non-ordinary world. This in itself can bestow a wondrous gift of spiritual grace..Because the natural world here has such a strong presence, it invites us to be present also. The natural world is particularly a mirror of our own soul. Thunder and lightning, rivers that rage or gently meander, trees shimmering in the breeze with sunlight. Blue skies and gray skies are mirrors of our own moods, emotions and energies.
It's as if we are walking through a living soul journey. Without needing to understand how or why, if we just practice this becoming the land we receive its gift.We are choosing to feel the many emotional textures of world around us and to let it into our core where it can resonate with those lost parts of ourselves. If we welcome this into the heart of our pain, we can become more resonant and radiant with our own truth, our soul. It's as if the natural world provides us with a multiplicity of vibrational remedies for the soul .
Natural herbal remedies are no longer a secret to most people. There probably exists or did exist a natural remedy for every ailment on the earth. Not only as a physical substance which pharmaceutical companies have found chemical equivalents for, but as the vibrational substances which is the science of homeopathy and flower essences. The natural world is resonant with the energies we have chosen to deny in ourselves. It is indeed music to the soul, and the music of the soul. This is the healing aspect of visiting sacred places. This practice of becoming in the natural world translates into soulfulness. So go to a mountain top and stretch out your arms. Become the mountain and let the sky in. Go to the stream and lie down amongst the rocks and the rapids and let it flow into all the spaces. Or stand in the rain and drink it in with your heart.
