We are all connected to the Earth in one way or another. Some think of Earth as a planet only, but the Earth is very much a living entity. Some call Her Gaia, while others call her Mother or the Goddess. However you relate to Her, most of us here were created (as souls) when She was created, especially for Her.
A lot of people speak of grounding themselves. Different people define this concept in a variety of ways, but to me, grounding means remembering who you are, where you are, and it’s all about strengthening and remembering the connection we have with Earth. You don’t have to be in a natural setting to connect, although I find that particularly comforting and joyful; you can connect with Gaia from anywhere, including your own living room. I asked the Archangels about how the Earth connects with us and us with Her, and their answer follows.
Question: Can you please expand on how we and the Earth communicate?
Energetically, of course. She loves you all, as a mother loves her children, and despite the problems she has endured, she has no ill feelings toward you. The increase of natural disasters is a necessary part of her healing, but they are in no way meant as punishments.
Of all entities, Gaia is the easiest to connect with, partly because of proximity and availability, but also because the majority of souls living as humans on Earth were created and attuned especially for Earth. For every planet created, a group of souls is also created, and their first incarnation is always on the planet for which they were created. They may choose to incarnate on other planets for future lives, but in the case of Earth, most souls created for the planet prefer to reincarnate on Earth many times.
Usually an incarnated soul feels most comfortable on their home planet, because they are energetically attuned to that planet. Like energy attracts like energy. There are many ET souls who choose to incarnate as humans on Earth, often to help humanity in various ways, and some of them never feel completely comfortable. Although they can usually adjust to the different energetic frequency many never feel as though they belong there.
If you visualize and focus on the Earth during prayer or meditation, and if you are open to it, you will connect with Gaia. She never turns away from you. She will send you healing and loving energy. The connection is already there, because you are attuned to Her, and you are likely to feel more at peace afterwards.
When you cannot calm yourself or when you get caught up in fear or in the chaos of the world, ground yourself to the Earth. Imagine a connection forming between you and the planet. Some visualize roots growing from their body into the Earth, anchoring themselves to Her. Others visualize a light coming from the center of the Earth connecting with their own light and infusing them inside and out. Use whatever image resonates with you, and you will find a measure of peace.
Many of you find peace while in a natural setting. Our channel feels especially calm and joyful when she is among trees. Everything in nature is attuned to the Earth and therefore to you. You can find energetic balance through nature that calms and comforts you.
As we have already said, the number and severity of natural disasters will increase and continue, so the Earth can heal. This will be a temporary healing, if humanity does not change some of its ways with regard to Gaia. Nothing is irreversible, but neither is anything permanent. You and the Earth are constantly changing now more than ever.
If you choose to notice, Gaia is in constant communication with you. You can easily see the damage and waste mankind has caused. Natural disasters are generally communications that something is out of balance. Open your eyes and see; open your hearts and feel. The Earth sustains you and all of you are Her caretakers. You must do a better job of guarding her well-being.
Keeping the Earth balanced and healthy is all of our responsibility. We can all do something to help, whether it’s never littering, riding bikes instead of riding cars (full disclosure: that’s not part of my contribution; that ship sailed long ago), or not buying disposable water bottles anymore. There are many ways to help. It’s easy to think that none of those things will make a difference, but if enough of us pitch in and are more focused on Gaia, we absolutely can make a difference.
Also, I wrote an article recently about sending healing energy to the Earth. We can do this the same way we ground ourselves. We just have to set the intention of sending loving and healing energy to Her. When we do that, we also get the same back. Win, win. I try to do that daily, around 7pm mountain time, if you’d like to join me.
Blessings all, Jodie.
