"As you walk outside - whether it is in a city, or a forest, a beach - you give thanks to the elements for all that they give you.
What we bless blesses us in return....As you find ways to reconnect with nature and its elements you will find that the life of nature responds in a way that reminds you of the magic of life, a truly wonderful gift."The funny thing is that gratitude walks are first mentioned on page 67 of the book.
" Sandra teaches that working with the elements in nature is a great way to help us listen to the deep calling of our soul.
Nature can move us into a trance state where our rational mind quiets down and we can listen to the deep guidance rising from within.
Sitting by running water such as a river, stream, or waterfall can help you be transported away from the ordinary, allowing your inner wisdom to rise up.
Watching the waves in the ocean creates a state of opening so you can listen to the messages of your soul.
Finding a place on the Earth where you can look out into the distance can take away from the daily thoughts and allow inner guidance to be heard."
