Do you feel connected to Nature? Like, truly connected?
Do you have a strong sense of Spirit/Source/The Divine/Something Greater Than Yourself?
As sensitive folks, we generally have a strong pull towards these more subtle aspects, and are capable of a deep connection as a result.
However, so much of the “normal” lifestyle these days seems to be designed more and more to keep us separate from these aspects of ourselves…
And, that disconnection is largely responsible for the common struggles of most sensitive, deep-feelers: burnout, anxiety, overwhelm, and poor health.
So how do we reconnect? What does it mean to live Nature’s rhythms? How do we reclaim an authentic connection with Spirit that’s gatekeeper and dogma-free?
Living a natural, simple life close to nature is a super foreign concept these days… modern life is loud, bright, chaotic, and plugged in 24/7.
Most sensitive folks either don’t know how to live in alignment with Nature’s rhythms anymore and connect with their own sense of Spirit.
Or they have some shame and resistance around doing so because of what they’ve been taught or shown to be “acceptable” and “normal” in our culture.
Contrary to the “normal,” collective viewpoint these days, we are not separate from Nature, and the best, most direct, simplest way towards bringing wholeness and healing into every part of ourselves is through reconnecting with Nature’s rhythms and our own sense of Spirit.
When disconnected from Nature’s rhythms, and our innate sense of Spirit, things like burnout, anxiety, overthinking, and poor health inevitably result.
When we come back into alignment and begin to favor more natural ways of living and being from the inside out, we also tackle that twofold root cause of most all sensitive folks’ struggles – misunderstood and mismanaged sensitivity. This sense of shame and a weak foundation of self-care yields the overthinking, constant burnout, paralyzing anxiety, feelings of unworthiness and low self-esteem, ill-health, and more.
When we come back into alignment with these natural rhythms by adjusting our lifestyle habits and choices, from how we rest, eat, and work, on a daily and seasonal basis, we’re able to find a sense of permission to be our natural, sensitive selves so we may begin to look inside ourselves for safety, belonging, contentment, and joy, rather than the outside world and all of it’s unnatural, depleting ways.
So where to begin? Here’s a little exercise. It’s so simple and because of its simplicity, it’s powerful.
OK, so for the next three days in a row at least, spend some time outside daily watching Nature, ideally at different times of the day.
Watch a sunrise or sunset. Listen to birds chirp and bugs buzz. Feel the sunshine on your skin. Notice the response in your body. Notice what emotions and thoughts arise for you.
Over those three days, notice how your sensitivity responds… I bet you your emotions flow with greater ease and less swings. I bet your body feels less tense and anxious. I bet you sleep better. Try it and let me know!
Remember, these natural rhythms are already living inside of you… it’s not a matter of learning anything, it’s a matter of remembering and listening inward and letting your sensitivity be the superpower and guide that it’s trying to be for you.
A question to hold close to your heart: Am I really “too sensitive,” or am I just here to create new ways of living and being that actually honor natural ways of being and living?
When connection with Spirit & Nature is combined with the other four elements on what I call “The 5 Elements Framework,” which are body, emotions and energy, mind, spirit and nature, and relationships and social roles, we can totally transform your experience of believing your sensitivity is a curse and something to “fix,” into you embracing, safeguarding, and leveraging it for life!
