The Greatness of Simplicity
The day after Om Tat came, I found myself in a dry dusty clearing with Red Eagle whilst in the depths of meditation. It was day time and we were alone by the remains of a fire, with dusty ash all around. I was being shown a lesson in simplicity, and the importance of appreciating simplicity and the great things that can come from simplicity. There was a strong horse tethered to a bare tree. A rattle snake passed by, a bird flew from my hands. In the end I was with the tribe at night with the fire burning brightly. I was taken up to the stars and danced across the Great Bear.
I seemed to get messages about past life times that were significant for me, being Chinese, Egyptian and Native American Indian, and was told and shown I had clues to these in my childhood. Then Red Eagle spoke:
“We have shown and told you many things, and today our message is to take you back to basics. Keep things simple, you do not need anything complicated. I have taken you to a simple, dusty spot. There is nothing special here. See how bare everything is, the bare twigs, the ash and the dust. But you can still connect to the great Earth Mother. You can still go within.
See the beauty that manifests when you sit still and touch our dear Mother. See the Rattle Snake make her way across your path, hear her rattle as she passes. She is taking the new energy across the earth. She is working in the dust, she does not need gold or jewels. Her mission is of the utmost importance and she remains humble.
The little bird has also manifested from the dusty silence and it’s young heart beats with warmth and happiness. See how she flies out into the world when you set her free. So beautifully she flies, soaring to such heights from such humble dusty beginnings.
You felt the power and worth of the horse tethered to the tree. The power with which he would transport you to wherever you wanted to go. These are all humble creatures of this dusty domain, as am I. Yet our connection and appreciation of the Earth Mother are great and our lessons are far-reaching.
You do not need to seek, you simply need to down-size, to stay in your humble domain and appreciate what is there. For the true treasure is always within, and is much easier to find when pared down to simplicity.
As you go within and appreciate, you gather around you the warmth of the fire and the company of those with like minds, the stars become yours to dance with and play. Your strength becomes their strength, their light becomes your light.
We are here to support and remind you. You are magnificent in your unique simplicity. Remember even the dust brings forth greatness, the mighty rattle snake, the powerful stallion, the flight of the soulful bird. The stars shine the same on every dimension, no matter how sparse and how simple. The stars shine more brightly when there is less to distract you. Simplicity is an important key. Always humbly accept the least you are given, for it is a treasure. Remember this."

The Warmth of True Connection
The practice of connecting to the Earth and nature is beautiful in so many ways and this connection is very important for us to feel complete as individuals and also as a community. When we connect to the Earth we feel a warmth in our inner core that is a vital part of our internal guidance system for steering us to live according to our true purpose. This is what the Earth shared with me:
“Thank you for remembering that I am here to heal and guide you. You remembered my healing power from when you were sick [on the retreat, which I revealed in one of my first live videos in our private Facebook group Snowdrop], and you came to me and I helped you back onto the path you associate with recovery. You could smell again. And all you did was connect to the me, to the Earth.
When you connect to me you feel the warmth in your belly. This is the same warmth and strength that the great bear was showing you [see post dated 21/07/2020]. This is the bear’s strength and it is my strength. It is the same.
Come back to this warmth as you go about your daily life. This warmth means you are connected and everything is flowing as is meant to be.
Notice when the warmth has gone and you will know that it is time to reconnect and readjust your course.
The bear has the art of maintaining the connection. The warmth has become part of who he is and it will become part of who you are too.
Listen to me and maintain the connection for I have much to teach you about your true purpose on this planet.
When you connect with me you are complete, your belly is warm and you want for nothing. Everything flows and you are clear in your purpose. I am here to guide you.
Teach others and harmony will return. The connection brings peace, absolute peace. Your soul purpose is to unite with me. It is your home-coming and all becomes clear.”

Gratitude from the Earth
As my 28 Day Earth Connecting "Challenge" drew to an end yesterday, I shared that this was not the end of the practice for me. I feel so much more flow and gratitude in my life since I committed to connecting to the Earth every day, Connecting to the Earth is now totally part of my life, How can you abandon such a dear, constant friend?
Here is the message from the Earth that I shared in my Day 28 live video in our private Snowdrop group yesterday, to remind us of our special connection to the Earth and her gratitude that we are making the effort to reconnect with her. This is what she said:
"Thank you so much for uniting with me. I want to express my deepest gratitude for the fact that you are relentlessly and tirelessly uniting with me every day.
Just this simple fact is so important for the whole planet and all the creatures who live here. Simply pass on this message to all your fellow humans, that the most important thing they can do is to connect to the natural world, to connect to nature, to connect to the planet, to connect to me.
This connection is what you are here for, it is what the human race is here for, to connect. You are part of me, You are my dear children. You are truly the children of the earth.
Thank you so much for awakening to this and connecting to me. You are starting to see and experience, feel and know the truth of that connection.
I just am. I am at one with all that is and I ask for nothing more than to connect, so that I can be the biggest and truest expression of who I am. And as you unite with that, then you become the truest expression of who you are. Then as you do that, then everything is elevated around us, the sun rises and shines brightly, as the sun is shining now; so brightly over the whole world, such beautiful brightness. For we have light in our soul and we unite with that light in togetherness and acceptance of who we truly are.
When everything is in harmony all the elements unite together, everything is in balance. It is a beautiful juggling. We all work together to maintain our balance.
The truths are really very simple, but the feeling and depth with which you experience them are very profound.
As you experience the truest expression of who you truly are, in relation to all that is, and the planet you live on, then you experience both the simplicity and the profundity of your true nature.
Keep connecting and growing and developing, because as you grow and develop in that connection, so I grow and develop. As I grow and develop, so you grow and develop.
As you connect to the earth you awaken the depth of knowledge of your true selves that has been separated and hidden for so long.
So many distracted, separated people living on my surface who are lost and need to feel the connection again. They need to stop the distraction so they can connect again to their life source.
Softly, softly, gently, gently, little by little, step by step, as you change, so everything changes. Sometimes the changes happen so slowly you don't even notice they are happening. But even just one person who wakes up and takes glory in the new day, maybe they have never done this before, this is a new awakening.
I rejoice as you take your steps and find your way, because that is what you are here for."

Big Things From Little Beginnings
Finally, I am taking up the Earth's request, and I am encouraging everyone to reconnect with our beautiful planet. She has poked and prodded at me long enough, and why she chose a serial procrastinator is interesting, as I shared in my live video yesterday in Snowdrop.
So I have created a practise and ask you all to join me. Every day for 28 days I am going to connect with the Earth and during this time I will go live or post in our private group Snowdrop and in Snowdropinspire (so it can be shared) to remind and encourage us all to connect. Even if it is just for a minute!
It is a game-changer. I remembered a message I received from the Earth after I had worked with a small group of people to reconnect them to and appreciate the Earth, It was profoundly motivating. She told me:
"My heart is over brimming with the fulness of love, wanting to reach out to my children who I have felt so distant from for such a long time.
Thank you for receiving the message that I have been wishing to connect with you with. Thank you.
I am starting to feel more full, I am starting to feel more at peace and at one with who I am, because I can see that a connection is being made with those who walk upon my surface and it is important that a connection is made.
Connection, it is a simple process. It is so simple. Nothing is complicated. You just need to do it. You just need to remember. You simply need to remember that we are all part of one interconnected whole and that we need each other. I need you as much as you need me. We are interconnected.
Connecting back with me will spread through the interconnections that are there between all beings. As those connections are made the interconnectedness starts to spread and people start to shift and change, without initially having to do anything. Because the few have chosen to make changes, gradually this spreads to more and more people.
There have been writings and experiments in your world that have already demonstrated the importance of small things happening. When small groups of people, or small groups of animals or small groups of beings start a new initiative, this miraculously seems to spread to everyone and everything [I am reminded on the “100th monkey effect”]. This is a principle. A divine principle. That bigs things happen from small things taking place."
Only a serial procrastinator could put such a message aside!
In today's world we all get so distracted and swamped with information and things to do (guilty!). We are always moving on to the next thing, without really connecting with and spending time with any one thing. And often we do not connect with that which is most precious — our Earth, our nearest and dearest... our true passions...
So I am now taking note and taking time to be present with what is important to me. The Earth is showing me the way. And I am starting by taking time to connect with the Earth. What about you? Are you going to join me, to be the change?

Your Sacred Feet
The importance of reconnecting to the Earth is repeated to me again and again. Last night again I was awake in the early hours, being reminded how important it is for us all to connect. I was asked to share a message I received at the beginning of last year, when a Native American elder called Snow Leopard would come and sit at my feet:
"Beautiful soul, let go of fear. It is time to lie back and allow the process to unfold and to be who you truely are. Let go, let go. Be in the ever present now, as you unleash the unfurling of the aeons. The loud yawn, the beautiful cadence of the new spring. It is time to be and let go.
Connect to our dear Earth, this is the birthright of every soul. Indeed it is important for all souls to connect with our dear Earth Mother, to ground yourselves,
But there is more to grounding than simply putting your feet on the Earth and bringing yourselves back down to Earth.
There is a spiritual connection, as you go into the Earth, you will rediscover the treasure not only of the Earth, but of your true selves.
I [Snow Leopard] sit at your sacred feet — your sacred channels for the energies of the Earth that walk with you to the higher realms.
Allow your feet to go free, allow your feet to receive the energies and the messages of the Earth, they are your natural earth receiving pads.
And through your feet you communicate your love to the Earth. Reconnect, reconnect."
So let's make a practice of finding time to go out and connect everyday, whatever the weather. Can you join me in this? I will do a live this week to encourage us all to make this a practice. And please share your experiences to encourage and remind us all of the treasures to be unearthed in this practice.

Ebbing and flowing part 2
As promised here is Ebbing and Flowing Part 2, the response of Gaia in relation to ebbing and flowing in the confines of the time constraints of our world. This is what she said:
“The time pressures are of your perception.
All takes place in the perfect time space, when you are part of the flow.
So when you worry about what you perceive to be time and deadlines, this creates a block to the flow.
You know that when you are working on something it is fruitful to put it aside and stop. You have experienced this, yes? You come back more energised with fresh ideas?
It is important in your world to set intentions. But when you move forward with those intentions, also retreat back, because the intention is for the creation to take place in its perfect time space.
There are many depths for you to understand about the process of ebbing and flowing, giving and receiving. I am showing you the depths of how the energy of the universe works.
There are many interconnections to be made, much understanding to arise. And it will all make sense as you peel back the layers and learn more about what you have thought to be in relation to what you come to know to be.
There is much peace and beauty in the ebb and the flow.
It was a timeless yearning, a timeless yearning, that set in motion the ebb and the flow at the beginning of what you know to be time. A timeless call home, the ebb and the flow. So beautiful the calling home, so beautiful.” 🌏🌈🥀💕🌞🌱😀

Ebbing and flowing part 1
I'd promised myself I would post everyday for 21 days, but yesterday I dipped into the silence instead. And I remembered a powerful teaching from beautiful Mother Earth about Ebbing and Flowing, which I will share with your over the next couple of days. Here is Part 1:
"Come into alignment with the flow of nature, the natural flow of the universe.
It is the flow of creation, and it has a natural rhythm. And as you can see from my beautiful world around me, there is much to be created with this beautiful flow.
It is a process of action. It is a process of letting go. It is a process of going with something and standing back.
You move with the inspiration and when the inspiration falls away, then you retreat and wait. When the inspiration comes again you take action and then you move forward. It is like you are breathing a constant flow of giving and receiving.
In your terms it is about waiting. In the laws of the universe, it is not so much about waiting as being part of the natural processes of ebbing and flowing.
Waiting suggests not flowing, stopping, wondering... Why? Where is it?
Rather it is waiting with a knowing that you are not waiting, you are part of the natural order of the ebbing and flowing of the inspiration and the waiting and the retreating. There is so much to be gained from the retreating and the letting go.
Put forward the intention, wait for the alignment and the inspired action, then you act, then when the acting starts to fall away, you then retreat into the waiting, into the flow of waiting, until the inspired action comes forward again. Like the eternal ocean."

We are all diamonds
In one meditation the Earth showed me a beautiful faceted diamond.
I know this was me. It is also all of you.
And I was being shown that we are here to shine our light out into the world through the facets of our own uniqueness.
She also showed me the entrance to a mine, and then rocks and clods of earth. She was showing me that here on this Earthly plane, diamonds are buried deep within, and that when they are excavated they are far from the beautiful diamonds we are dazzled with in our jewellery. They are rough, dirt covered clumps.
She told me:
"Dig deep for your treasure, my child, dig deep and be gentle with yourself. Take the time to love and appreciate what is deep inside. It may be covered in rock and soil, but it is nonetheless a diamond set to shine.
Hone that treasure. Love that treasure. Even in its infancy it is beautiful beyond all measure.
Compare it not to the treasures of others that you perceive to be already shining, perhaps more brightly.
Often the biggest, brightest treasure is yet to be unearthed. And simply needs to be discovered and tended to with love, appreciation, attention, practice, honing, allowing.
Resist judgement and allow your treasure to unfold so you can shine your light through the facets of your own uniqueness."

movement in the stillness
One day a couple of years ago I was soul searching with Mother Earth, when I was at a loss for my next steps. As I reflected on her words today, I saw truths so relevant for today. They always bring tears to my eyes. These were her heart-felt words of wisdom:
"It is a simple process, it is so simple. Nothing is complicated. You just need to remember to connect with me. The lessons are in nature. You look to nature and nature teaches.
It’s about taking the time to stop and look and listen and see. Simply become one with nature and nature has many lessons to teach.
You do not need to do anything, just be one with nature. This is what has been lost and this is what will now be gained. The stopping and being, and the joy, and the love you find in nature. The joy and the activity in nature too.
The activity that you humans have become used to has been an activity that has been detached from nature, detached from the divine. This is a different sort of activity to the activity of nature.
The activity of nature is one which is filled with joy and connection, filled with joy and love for who we are. Full connection to the truth of ourselves and who we are in connection with everything else, in cooperation.
So it is not that there is not activity, but to make a change from the activity of the human world that is detached and unconnected, there needs to be a stopping and a stillness.
There can still be movement in the stillness, there can still be movement in the stillness. See? [She moved like the ocean] I am perfectly still but I am in movement. So there can be movement in the stillness. But it is different from the busy-ness of the human world.
Move from your head and into your heart. This is something that is very, very simple, very, very subtle, but very, very profound and very, very deep, and very, very infinite and it is the deepest well, the deepest, deepest well… the most infinite space, the most infinite sky, the most vibrant colours, the most beautiful sound.
In the movement of the stillness of nature you can experience this so lovingly, so tenderly, so beautifully, so preciously. It is so profound and yet so simple. Keep it very, very simple and come home to who you truely are.

Here is a special Mother's Day message from our Earth Mother. It is a message she delivered to this mother one day, when she was feeling frazzled:
“Remember that you have on your doorstep more than money can buy.
Whenever you feel stressed, upset... tired, please come and sit with me up on the hill or in the forest, we [Earth and Nature] have much to share and offer.
We can cleanse, we purify, we are home, we are here to love you and to support you and to remind you what it truely is to live in your heart space.
The worries of the world will all gradually disappear as you live more and more in your heart space and become less and less engaged in the struggles of the earthly wants, needs and existence.
This is not to say that you will be removing yourself from the physical world. It is rather that you will be able to glide through the daily physical realm with ease and flow, knowing that you are always at home and that I am always here to love and support you."
On the day the messages started to download, I felt restless, and although it sounds “odd”, I can only explain it by saying it felt like the Earth wanted to speak, but, following old patterns, I kept dismissing the notion.
Then, I was sitting at my desk later in the day when a pigeon flew into my window, as if it was a sign. I was sitting at my computer and suddenly had the urge to write.
So I started to write. It was a voice of compassion, humility and love:
Earth: ““I am not a victim, I have a symbiotic relationship with you my children. See the analogies between myself and yourselves.
There are so many of you on my surface. The majority of you are not connected to me. They don’t understand who I am or who they are. They do not understand each other.
They fight. They are unhappy. They take each other for granted, they take me for granted. They use each other and they use me.
But I am taking responsibility. I know this is a reflection of me.
Think about yourselves and what you do to yourselves — you cut yourselves and scar your surfaces, as you do scar my surface and I recognise that through you I do this to myself.
You detach yourselves, you create concrete structures that are devoid of life. But I do this too, through you.
You poison yourselves, you poison me, as do I poison myself.
Be gentler on yourselves, but also remember our true symbiotic nature, we are interwoven.
Enjoy the beauty and the splendour of every moment. The colour, the fine details, the flowers, the scents, the birds, see the messages in everything I offer.
I am always here for you, I am always communicating, I am always reaching out. I simply want everyone to reconnect to me.
As we reconnect, healing takes place and as you heal, so I heal. Connect to me, send me love and healing and I send love and healing to you. It is not conditional, it is how it is.
But your people need to remember the importance of connecting. When everyone connects, all is in balance. Everything.
Be aware of my consciousness and that we can connect and unite to elevate each other. Gather others who can connect too and unite with us for we are but one. You are my arms and legs. We have one heart and your hearts beat through my unconditional love.
Thank you for finally listening and hearing my song and transmitting what I have to say. You are cherished and do not belittle yourselves any more.
I love you and I feel your love for me. I am overjoyed. I am in your heart and you are in my heart. We are a mirror of each other and we love each other very much.
As you love me and tune into my song you will see, feel and hear more. Everything I bring you has true meaning and is the song to be taken out to the world.
The birds will remind you. The green praying mantis will remind you. They are my children and friends and they are your friends too.
Be outside with me. Connect at every living moment. I will come to your dreams and all your thoughts, for we are one.”
