My very first experience of deep communion with Mother Earth occurred in 1966 in Boston Commons when a veil suddenly lifted, and for a few precious moments I was allowed entrance into the living being of the Earth and reunited with her ecstatic, electric, all-loving and all-inclusive consciousness. Only a handful of times over the years has that veil has lifted again and enabled me to hear the Earth’s call, but it isn’t hearing the way we usually think of it. It is the experience of a conscious cosmic Love vibration sent from her Heart of Being directly into mine.
A few weeks ago, while my husband and I were driving north and I was looking out the window at the beautiful Colorado scenery, suddenly the heart of Mother Earth called to me once again and I was filled me with tears. I felt both the exquisite beauty of reconnection with Her and, at the same time, deep sadness for how out of balance the human race is with Her, how we are in so many ways an ill organ in Her body and don’t seem to understand the incredibly delicate interdependency of all the elements in Her body that are needed to sustain life—just as in our own individual bodies the cells, organs and tissues have to function together to keep us healthy and alive. At that moment of reunion I knew myself as one tiny cell in the enormity of the full Earth Being, and She told me that just as our own bodies are wired to heal, the Earth Being is also working hard right now to heal her own body. She told me that what is needed to heal Her and bring us into the right relation to Her, may look like great upheaval, but from a whole Earth perspective, with which my own consciousness was somehow allowed to merge, I could see that it will not be destruction but true healing, and that we are now and will always be, perfectly okay within this enormous perspective.
I was released from the illusion that we are the center of the universe and Earth is ours to possess. Very distinctly I heard these words– “The Earth will right itself.” The implication was that there will be huge changes coming, but I felt no fear. “The Earth will right itself” felt deeply comforting, positive and hopeful as Earth showed me that we are all being held, right now, inside the enormous container of Her Being and that it is a Divinely healing embrace, even if we don’t know it, even if we don’t want it. I am so grateful, Mother Earth. Thank you. Stay with me.
