In this book of healing meditations by non-traditional shaman and healer, Judith Hirst, you will discover that there are depths to Nature that you have not imagined. The images in the words spark a memory in the cells that calls each of us to return to our place in Nature. We are part of the whole.
As you meditate through each of the beautifully phrased 111 contemplations, you find that you go on a journey of discovery about what Nature is saying. You will observe, with the writer, the messages that suddenly seem so clear. Your first thought is, “Why did I not see that before?” And then you may realize that you have absented yourself from Nature, even though you have walked in many parks and hiked many trails. You have held yourself back from being in full contact with the animals, the trees, and the elements.
The stories within each of the meditations remind us that the oldest language is not of words; it is of symbols and pictures. If we take the suggestions in many of the verses to the point of action, then we will find that we regain a bit of our soul each time we allow ourselves to be caught up in the energy. With these meditations, you can be your own guide and walk into different places. Have a wonderful journey!
"This is a meditation book like no other — for “Earth Wisdom Meditations” gently connects us to the vast and intricate web of energies that surround us. Judy’s thoughts and words inspire us to open our mind and senses to these loving and supportive energies—which in turn enables us to ‘hear’, to ‘notice’, and to ‘recognize’ their soft murmurs.
Judy shares her understanding of this world with such empathy and compassion that one feels immersed with hope and encouragement. Her book is a gift of personal discovery; it provides us with insight into our own unique abilities, and we learn."
