Today’s Note to Self:
~Remember Today …
To live life with the burning passion of a sunset melting its way into the horizon
To forgive with the gentleness of a feather floating with the breeze
To coo with the peacefulness of a thousand white doves
To love with the constancy of the stream of life which gives birth to all desires
To feel the wisdom of the ancients surging through my veins as does the sap flowing through an age old tree
To see my purpose with the clarity of an eagle’s eye as I soar with the winds on high
To sing with the sweetness of a willy wagtail on the crispness of a frosty dawn,
To dance with the joy of butterfly through golden rays of sunshine
To know strength and courage as do the steel blue mountains that gaze out upon the world
To rest with the stars in the deepest ebony skies and feel the great Spirit breathe my lungs and breathe my soul
To lay on the earth and become one with the heartbeat of all of creation
To live the Truth that Nature shares with me each and every day
To allow my sacred journey to unfold with the guidance of the Great Spirit who knows all things
And for this … I am truly grateful!~
It is such a joy to see the beauty of nature in the most amazing sunset, the majestic mountain that looms before us, or the azure blue ocean that stretches towards the horizon, but how often do we actually stop to see the tiniest, most spectacular gifts of nature that surround us in every moment of every day. The gifts that hold the most magical lessons in Truth!
My spiritual journey has taken me along many paths in my search of Truth. The one path that has taught me more than any other, is the path I walk along every day; the walking track beside Diamond Creek in Eltham, Melbourne. It is here that I feel totally at peace with the world as I do my daily walking meditation, connecting with the spirit of nature, taking my photos, and then tuning into the message for that particular day. To work with Nature Spirits is both incredibly rewarding and an amazing experience.
May I suggest that the best way to use this book for your daily inspiration from Nature Spirit is by just reading the message on the page that falls open in your hands. Spirit has a wonderful way of guiding us to what we need to hear!
My wish for you is that your journey be filled with the breath of an ancient tree, the magical light of a thousand stars, the music of gentle falling rain, and the love in the heartbeat of all creation.

A Magical Sound
Note to Self ~Remember today to sing to the flowers, who will sing to the trees, who will sing to the sky, who will sing to the breeze, who will carry it up and on and around... what a magical song, what a magical sound~
I just love the thought that when we sing, everything around us feels the vibration of joy and joins in the song… every leaf, every flower, every tree, the breeze, the sky, and on and on it goes! The stresses of the day just disappear from sight, and every moment is filled with the joy of living when we open our hearts and sing to the world, or to anything that will listen! Then something magical happens! Everyone around us begins to smile, and a chain of happiness begins to grow.
This beautiful little flower was poking its head out from amongst the grass and singing with all its might. The grass swayed in time with the song as the breeze gently rocked it back and forth, and all within the vicinity of the little flower seemed to sparkle with the joy of living.
Message from Nature Spirit:
Everything in this world is connected by vibration! Music is the bridge connecting the physical and spiritual worlds and when you sing, you immediately begin to build your very own link to the magical state where dreams manifest as quickly as a wink. This happens because everything around you captures your vibration of joy, passes it on, and very soon, the whole of nature is singing your song. Nature loves it so much, that it sends back to you magical surprises from magical places to help make you even happier… so today, come on, how about a song!
Below the Surface
Note to Self ~Remember today, that the truth of me lies below the surface of what is seen by the world… that magical spiritual me~
Reeds in the water are very valuable to the birdlife, fish and other creatures that spend their lives in our waterways. I often sit and wonder what lies hidden at the feet of the reeds, in the muddiness of the floor of the lake. On this particular day it was time for me to stop wondering, and listen to the message of the reeds as they swayed gently in the currents of the lake!
Message from Nature Spirit:
So many people go through life living like a reed standing in the water! You know from science that what you see above the water line is really only a small percentage of the actual reed, and the most significant parts of the plant, the roots and the bulb, are hidden below the waterline and can’t be seen by anyone just strolling by.
You are exactly the same. The world around you only gets to see the outer physical form by which they can identify you as you. Sadly, they cannot see your amazing spiritual form which is found deep within where much of your real self is hidden from view; your dreams, the special gifts that you are too afraid to share, your uniqueness, your story, your strength and courage, and your emotions. What if today, you took one tiny step towards sharing a little more of that magnificent, amazing self that lies hidden deep within? Oh Wow! What a wonderful world it would be!
