Hi peeps, how are you all feeling? Last night Sydney had a massive lightning storm that felt like we were literally inside the thunder and surrounded by lightning. There was a moment when I felt the Earth tilt a little. It's hard to describe, kind of like oh God is the Earth about to topple over a bit?!! It was subtle, yet enough for me to feel pretty scared for a minute. Now I've heard from family/friends that they felt this too, be it the strange physical sensation or the unusual emotional unsettledness. Did anyone else feel the sway? Whether in Sydney or elsewhere?
This morning the Solomon Islands had a 7.8 earthquake with a 6.5 off the coast of California, and while it is normal for Earth to have earthquakes every day there was something about last night that felt quite different. We are on a living planet and she has every right to move and shake off any tension, yet we are only human and it can sometimes feel unsettling to realise at the end of the day we have no control over some things.
Earth shifts are a great reminder that we have to take care of her, our Mother Earth, because she feels everything we do and absolutely will not take much more of the drilling and fracking she's been put through. Too often we think of these things as political issues or environmental issues, but this is also a basic survival issue. We need the Earth, and it is to our benefit to appreciate and respect her. We really do live on a paradise planet. There are some shakes she has to have, and there are some that our way of living bring on.
A prayer today to the Mother Earth: Thank you for all you do for us. We will do what we can every day to look after you. Aho/Amen
