This book has been written in response to many calls from friends and others, to share what has been a rather fascinating and inspiring journey delving into the spiritual and physical landscape of earth.
This book is for those people who are curious about the mystery of earth’s multi dimensional nature. It’s a book for those who have a deep reverence for Mother Earth and all life.
When you explore life according to the natural laws of cycles, seasons and elements, rise and fall of life, ebb and flow of tides, the night sky and the transit of stars above, a deep fascination and appreciation starts to claim your heart and soul.
You learn about your own nature through these connections.
We have a unique opportunity and choice to connect with this great planet, and to be involved in the experience of her multi faceted nature and expression. The cities, people, animal life, unique ecosystems, the sea and the land, all offer insight into our place here on earth.
Along the way we realize our inter connectedness to all kingdoms: human, animal, plant, mineral. We have choices to love and care for this planet, and trust in an earthly evolution, its sacred and timeless mystery.
Having spent many years pondering the mystery of the earth physically and spiritually, I began to feel more connected to earth and the sanctuary she offers to each of us. This instilled in me a desire to understand the life at my disposal a little more.
It is fairly natural to see that inter connectedness between all things when acceptance and grace slip in.
The love and trust of animals both domestic and wild amazes me, their evolution tied into ours. Their complete acceptance, loyalty and trust in human company even in the most trying situations. Bless them.
I have tried to include interesting ideas, approaches, various healing techniques, energy practices and meditations, to take you the reader on a progressive and indeed fascinating path. The practices, whilst very simple, will benefit you in many ways, if you put your total awareness into them. Be patient and work through the heart. The reason practice is simple, is because it’s the only way to have right contact with the soul.
It looks like we live in a 3D world but honestly there is so much more to it. There are many ways to observe life. When you look into a body of energy or even a forest of energy you see light and energy frequencies - all form disappears. A holographic nature appears, light fields, tunnels, whorls and movement that tantalizes the curiosity.
If you want quiet dignity and knowing, and want to walk hand in hand with spirit then give up what and who you think you are and opt for the inner journey into your truth.
• Walk through time in the forest and by the sea.
• Talk to the earth and its creatures.
• Explore her spiritual mystery.
• Commune with the elements.
• Know the cycles.
• Learn to find ways to be inspired.
• Learn to dance with life.
You start to align with a natural movement and flow within the heart. A natural spontaneity kicks in and you become more at one with the inner part of you.
Too often we exclude feminine practices in our life, when we should notice them more:
• Ritual ‘to bind back’.
• Ceremony ‘to celebrate’.
• Meditation ‘to deepen’.
• Communing ‘to know’.
• Creating ‘who am I’.
Mother Earth can offer so much to us in establishing a deeper earth-soul connection. At our finger tips is the magic, the mystery, the knowledge and creative wisdom that sits within waiting to be illuminated. Through persistence and quiet practice you get in touch with an appreciation of life.
Grace is sweeping the earth, in cycles, ushering in a new force of love, prompting those in honest service to follow through in trust and love.
The magic and the benefits that result when you travel the land will take you through into a greater vision and awareness. The path is not easy, and mastery of life is an interesting subject. We all have our own evolution. Along the path we are faced with our own reflection, over and over it seems, until you find yourself at the door of choice. At some point you have to ask yourself “do I stay and step up?” or “do I remain blissfully shallow forever?”
There is a lot of fear and manipulation in the world. It is up to those people who are creative, wise and mindful, the teachers, the healers, elders and leaders, to work with integrity and vision. To push forward with the practices that support the truth of our language, poetry, music, the arts, earth keeping, healing and brotherhood of man. We need to maintain a reverence for all life on this planet.
Be the love, and cherish
your place in this world.
Know your earthly soul.
Take care of your earth place.

Earth Soul Treaty
“The way of truth, peace & love”
We have a soul agreement with Mother Earth at birth which is to establish a solidarity and treaty between earth, the soul and all living things.
We are part of a circle of life within creation - human family, animals, trees, plants and all that exists throughout the natural earth and her starry alignments.
Being present in all our life experiences, to assume obligations through soul treaty, to accept responsibility and liability for the life we live on earth, we then begin to fulfill part of this soul agreement.
Just as you have obligations to family and friends as part of this soul covenant, you also have agreement with Mother Earth to protect her ecosystems and nurture the natural environment.
The indigenous people are the voice of the land,
and their land and its nature is the voice of its people.
