Is the Earth Crying?

TreeThe other day I shared a post on The Church of Nature’s Facebook page that said ‘Be still and listen, the Earth is singing.’ A few people commented that she wasn’t singing, she was crying.

When I listen to the Earth I hear her streams, and birds.
I hear the wind, and the squirrel chattering in the tree.
I hear the sound of the leaves rustling and the katydids and cicadas singing.

But I don’t hear crying.

Yesterday, I spent a lot of time outside photographing trees.

I am in awe of trees always and as they put on their autumn coats I love to dive into their individuality.

Some step into autumn with a flourish and others shyly try on a few shades of yellow or red before committing; some are splashed in color and others have finely painted gradated palettes.

I breathed in the beauty, the wonder and the pure magic of Nature.

And then I heard her, the Earth.

She said ‘As long as I am here, Nature will be here. If I weep, I do not weep for myself,
I weep for you. If you are killing anyone, it is yourselves and if you succeed, I and Nature will
continue. We will continue to heal, to grow , to expand and to sing. If I weep, I weep for you.’

If the Earth cries, she cries for us.

On New Year’s Day, I sit in meditation and I connect to the Earth to see what she is
working on and to see what the Collective Consciousness (that aspect of the sum total of all of us past, present and future that represents the spiritual evolution of humanity,) is working on. In 2011, the Earth showed me an important shift that she was making.

No longer was the Earth prepared to give and give and give, without humanity understanding
or acknowledging the Law of Cause and Effect. If humanity was going to take without giving back,
the Earth was going to stop giving. She was going to put her energy and focus into healing herself.

In turn, that is also an evolutionary step happening with the Collective Consciousness. Leading Light Workers on the planet were given the message to move away from a long-standing role of healing people and instead were being guided to turn their energy and focus on healing themselves. Light Workers were being asked to stop doing the work of others. To let each person undertake their own healing and to continue the process of support and guidance by being examples of how one heals, and by teaching people how to heal.

The Earth is taking back her energy, she is healing herself and being an example. If we choose not to hear, or to listen; if we do not take responsibility for our own journey, for our own existence; it is humanity that will be lost.

And in such, the future of humanity, not the earth, is in our hands. The choice is ours. We must wake-up and step into lives that are conscious and that acknowledge our connection to all things; lives that acknowledge the Law of Cause and Effect.

Each of us most do our own healing work and stand as examples of conscious living. We must walk through the world with open hands and open hearts.

The more people who wake-up, the brighter the light of consciousness becomes and the louder our song of unity is, but the changes starts within each one of us. It is not ‘out there.’ It is not someone else’s issue, or problem.

Change starts within me. Change starts within you.



Try this: consciously go through your day with open hands. Keep them open. If you can, place your palms up to the sky. Find at least once or twice during the day when you can turn your open hands palms up. It may seem small, but it is an amazing exercise and will demonstrate how our growth and healing can be achieved through simple acts.  <3 Christine
