Can we truly heal Mother Earth?
For years I have been working with meditation and prayer partners, or leading telemeditations for collective earth energy-healing work. I was a vegan for many years until severe anemia caused me to modify my diet.
And I continue to listen to what others are saying about our planet with an open mind.
But last week a friend from Germany sent me a link to a trailer of the Earthlings Documentary that did more than open my mind. (The footage I’ve linked to was the least shocking I could find.)
For several days I stopped eating all but a few greens, then I just stopped eating meat. I’m still working on how far to go, to embrace authentic vegan living.
I also struggle with how to deal with my existing wardrobe and household sundries, with it’s token green or fair trade products. They, along with my intent, seem overpowered by those produced by mistreated workers or at the expense of innocent animals and nature.
Living so close to the ocean inspires me to search for even more remedies, not just within, but in sharing here. And so my next article will be on healing the ocean.
My hope is that you will join in helping make others aware that how we live is not only under community and self-examination, but pivotal in the decade ahead: a small but true window of hope.
And maybe we can make a pact here, that each of us kindly supports one another in shedding old habits while encouraging one another in making better choices. Choices that can lead us to collective healing, and taking seriously humanity’s responsibility to work together for the healing of our Mother Earth.
In this article series, “Who Heals the Earth”, I’ll share my feelings as I continue to look for better recipes, not only for my diet, but for my consciousness. My purpose is to also support you to create an even more spiritualized — if not completely vegan — whole life.
I invite your thoughts and feelings on how you envision, or are already, doing this. Please share in the comments, below.
Our Mother: our life, our love — our hope
