Nature is the greatest conductor of Divine energy that we can plug into. That is why inventors such as Nikola Tesla came up with the vision for the AC (alternating current) induction motor while walking in a park, spiritual teachers such as Jesus went into the garden to pray, Buddha attained his enlightenment under the Bodhi tree and even Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada started the Hare Krishna movement in America standing beneath an oak tree in NYC.

Not only do we receive messages from nature, there are also spirits overseeing and protecting nature. Tree spirits can often be literally seen in trees and if you listen close enough they will share their wisdom and healing powers with you.
The Earth runs in rhythmic cycles, some small and others large. For example, every 52 days she harvests new crops, every 2,000 - 2,300 years she births a New Age, every 11,000 years she shifts poles (geomagnetic pole reversal) and every 26,000 years she aligns with the sun at the equator (Precession of the Equinoxes). We are now approaching the year 2012 which marks the Age of Aquarius. The Age is symbolized by the feminine WaterBearer archetype with the pouring of water out of the clay jug onto the Earth's surface marks a baptism. The New Age of truth and brotherhood prevails over the old paradigm of ego, greed and separation. How amazing is it that this period coincides with the current "green movement" and more notably the return to organic farming from farmers markets to community food gardens as well as more "open space" in cities whether its a block long or acres?
This evolutionary process is part of an ever expanding evolving universe. As with any growth period, positive transformation requires going past a comfort zone. We are experiencing this right now. During this transformation period, Earth's climate becomes acute and off-balance. It must release its toxins from its system. Its outer body, we call the atmosphere, has to protect it from the solar flares of its own mother, the Sun. Humanity is experiencing the effects of catastrophic weather conditions as many are now living without the comforts and luxuries of their homes. Manmade satelites are being hit by "cosmic slop" and fall from the sky indicative of being in the right place at the wrong time.

As the Earth changes, we too, are changing. We must. That's because humans are evolving with the Earth. For decades we have been out of tune with the natural frequencies that transmit nourishment for the expansion of our souls. In order for us to grow we must return to nature and love her as our mother and our teacher. As we watch over her and listen to her, we will learn from her. Countries such as Ecuador understand this more than any other country. Ecuador and Bolivia ar the only countries, thus far, that have passed a rights for nature bill acknowledging that nature in all its forms has a right to exist, persist, maintain and regenerate its vital cycles. What most people don't know is that Ecuador's Constitutional Assembly got its legal assistance from a Pennsylvania based group in America. The recently published book, "The Rights of Nature," co-developed by Global Exchange, Council of Canadians and Fundacion Pachamama, explores this shift and reveals what's taking place legally and culturally to formulate a more intimate relationship with nature.
