The sounds of nature bring peace when my soul is restless…

I embrace the beautiful sounds of nature every opportunity I get! They are like music to my ears, especially when my soul is restless and desires peace.

Nature gives me the kind of mental and spiritual settling that any man-made therapy is unable to provide.

Whenever I have a stressful week at the office, I look forward to a weekend get-away at a holistic spa, where river waters gently caress rocks and birds sing sweetly in the trees. This kind of environment instantly causes my mood to soften and my muscles to relax. I love the sounds of nature!

On days when I am unable to be in a fully natural environment, I rely on recordings of the sounds of wild animals frolicking in their natural habitat. I lie still in my bed with my eyes closed and listen as I allow my spirit to traverse into another place.

At sundown, I sometimes make an effort to visit the beach, where I can sit still and hear the waves crashing against the rocks. That sound is very soothing to me.

It gives me the chance to listen to my innermost thoughts and find answers to questions that are plaguing my mind.

Today, I believe in the unspoken power of nature to make positive changes in my life. I acknowledge the messages being sent through nature and apply them to my daily life.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Do I allow my kids to spend time outdoors appreciating nature?
2. How often do I open doors and windows to bring the sounds of nature into my home?
3. Do I share quiet moments outdoors with the people I love so they too can experience the messages that nature sends?
