“If we look at Nature, we see that absolutely everything within it is important and there for a reason. As we are all a part of Nature, this means that we are important and here for a reason as well”
This is one of the key lessons that I teach, not only to my own 3 children, but to all of the children that I meet when I am touring with my book, “The Sapling.”
There is nothing within Nature that happens by accident. It is all planned and perfection. We are the same. There are no accidental or extra people on this Earth.
We all arrive with a gift to share, which is why it is so important that we grow into who we truly are, just like a tree, for example. Because if a tree did not grow into their full potential, we would all be denied their gifts, and look at how many of us would suffer. The rest of the world actually depends on us being true to ourselves.
And what about those people of the world who don’t seem to be contributing?
They are simply not in touch with who they really are and the true desires of their heart. When we turn to Nature and truly connect with the Earth, we become centered, grounded, and compassionate human beings. It is hard to deny our Soul’s longing within the authenticity of Nature.
“The Sapling” follows the journey of a little tree who feels small in a big world and becomes afraid to grow. With the encouragement of her friend, the Big Tree, she realizes there is nothing to fear and becomes the Tree she is meant to be.
As I’ve been touring schools, libraries, and daycares, I have been sharing this story as well as the lessons in energy and Nature communication. I absolutely love connecting with children and feel that I am learning more than I am teaching. I am happy to say that I have been pleasantly surprised at most places. I can see that the parents and teachers have been making Nature a priority within these children’s’ lives. These children are open and happy.
In others, unfortunately, even the children have become jaded and cynical, convinced that all that exists is what they can see, and even this is with a negative slant. This, of course, is no fault of their own. When I tell them that trees can talk to us, or that it was the trees who shared the idea for my book with me, they blurt out “that’s impossible!”
Such a sad statement from a little mouth. This is the time of their life when they should be reinforced with the knowledge that all things are possible.
Many schools and daycare centers are taking regular Nature walks and implementing gardens. I truly appreciate these wonderful teachers who are making the basic life skills and birthright of growing our own food a priority…
