Since i was little my mother use to say things to me like "Listen to the trees what do they say?" I loved the trees we had in our yard. I use to go up and hug them and talk to the leaves. It had been a long time since I had done that until recently.
I read an article in a magazine called "Light of Consciousness" There are some nature mediations in a article and I would like to share one.
"In Interview with Nature, you look for a special rock, plant, or animal that has an interesting story to tell. You ask it question like, "Wha t events have you seen in your life? What is it like to live here? Is there something you would like to tell me?" People sometimes feel a little awkward at first talking to something as if it were alive. But very quickly they come to appreciate the fact their rock or tree has a precious life of its own."
I have to say I had a nice conversation with a pair of tree branches. It is funny how each one had it's own personality. The smaller of the bunch was fearful of being broken into pieces and the bigger on was very confident of being on it's own.
