One of the best ways to connect to Spirit is through nature. Nature is very important in our Spiritual growth. There are many reasons for this. The most important one is that when you are out in nature you are more grounded, centered and balanced. Nature is very healthy in every aspect of our beings: Spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically.

We must begin to make it a habit to get out into nature and enjoy our planet in its natural form. The best way to do this is to go to a park and walk in the woods. We need to have the connection to the ground, trees, plants and animals. The reason this is so effective is because these beings are very natural and in the moment, which makes an automatic connection to the Spirit Realm.

The thing you will notice while in nature is a very calm and peaceful feeling. This is very important when you are connecting to the Spirit Realm.The more peaceful and calm you are the easier it is to connect to Spirit. The grounding alone will make it so much easier to have that connection.

We must have a very open attitude towards nature. It is our lifeline both physically and Spiritually. We cannot survive without nature and we must be willing to care for our planet better than we have been. Once we lose nature we lose clean air and healthy food. We will also lose the enjoyment of nature and the connection to Spirit. This alone could destroy humanity.

Spirits will often be found in places where there is a lot of nature. One of the reasons for this is that they are drawn to people who can communicate with them. People who can easily communicate with Spirit are drawn to nature and will usually show up there. The two seem to be drawn to beautiful and natural places so this is sort of like a meet up for them. We must be very open while in nature to get the attention of Spirit,however. My mom will often drag home many Spirits when she returns from her favorite park. When she walks in the door the fuse will go out if she does not ask everyone to take a step back. This is because her favorite place is very much left it its natural state and is very attractive to both Spirit and people who are sensitive.

Meditating while in a natural place is also a very effective way to connect to Spirit. There is a big difference when you meditate in the woods as compared to in your home. The calm, peace and beauty will put you into a deeper meditative state, which will open you up and connect you with the Spirit Realm much easier. – John
