For several years, I have been receiving Letters from the Earth. Now, she urges me to share them with you. I believe they come deep from the heart of God, the nurturing energy in all of creation. I received this letter last week when once again, I was pushing myself too hard. A few days later, I woke up sick with a bad cold The sinus infection I’d been nursing for weeks went wild. Then I had to stop. What is it that keeps me trying to do too much? The Earth tried to tell me to stop before I got sick. Maybe now I’ll listen.

All living things need rest.
There is a rhythm of life. You move quickly, growing at a rapid rate as an embryo, cells dividing and manifesting into life. And you become human over the years, learning laughing, loving, crying.
When you quit growing, you’ve arrived. But no, you humans continue to strive and push yourselves beyond the precipice into tomorrow, always more.
But stop, Nancy. Listen. Slow down. Let it go. Then you really will get it. When you find ways to integrate more rest in your daily life you will truly start to live.
It’s not just about sleep. It’s about time to recharge with me in nature. It’s not about doing nothing, as much as being in bliss.
You’ve got this. I love you. You will find the way.
