Wild Word Mantras
As a writer with a deep spiritual connection to the Earth, I draw much of my inspiration from the natural world and the Divine feminine energy it connects me with. I’ve mentioned many times that the wild stories the Earth are a source of insight, wisdom and healing to me. My words and Nature are strongly tied together.
A while ago, I read a passage in Masura Emoto’s book The Miracle of Water, where he suggests that our fore-mothers and fathers “learned the first language of humankind by listening to the various vibrations and sounds created by nature.” I know very little about the origins of language, but I like this idea and there are indeed various instances where you can just sense the energetic connection between an aspect of nature and the word used to describe it.
I’ve been sitting with the nature pieces that I collected for my autumnal altar last week, just attuning to their consciousness, drawing out their wild words and then stringing those together into healing affirmations (the way I wrote about in a previous blog post – Gathering Your Inner Wild…). I’ve started off with the acorns. The impressions that came were Grounding, Abundance, Potential, Seeds and Fertility – words that resonate with the kind of healing I’m seeking on my wild mother path. So I’ve incorporated them into an affirmation, the mantra I’m meditating with and integrating this week.
Whenever I create and use these earth inspired mantras, I feel small healing shifts take place in me and in my life. I look forward to seeing what kind of shifts the acorn energy affirmation sets in motion.
Have you tried working intuitively with Nature to create affirmations? What was the experience like for you?
