This post will go into one of my current core beliefs. Heal the soul before the soil. Or even better, heal the soul while healing the soil.
As a collective, we have strayed away from caring about the soil that supports us every day. We seem to pay no mind to how we treat it, make it someone else’s problem, and expect it not to crumble, lash out, and destroy us. That subtly reflects how we treat ourselves and fellow women and men… but I will go into that another time. That is not what this post is about.
I want to help you see what I see, starting with the soil. When I look at soil, I see a soul. A lot of the time this soul is very quiet, but when you take the time to silence the mind and be with her, she speaks so clearly with subtle movement and rumbling on her own time schedule. This soul is full of pristine intelligence, and I am truly surprised that she has put up with us this long. Although, when karma demands to be paid it’s going to be a hard blow and a slow recovery, so we better, excuse my language, get our shit together.
You see, the soil has a soul. But we have dissected it to its many parts and forgot to put the pieces back together to see the bigger picture. We know that soil is made up of various levels of water, air, sand, silt, clay, biology, electrical charge, and enzymes. However, if we put it back together, you have a soul. A soul that is able to respond to stimuli. A soul that is able to create, sustain and destroy life. It has an essence.
The soil is a lot like us and we are a lot like her.
We can be broken down into different components; bone, blood, enzyme, minerals, electrical charge etc., but when you put it all together you then get thoughts, emotions, and desires; a soul emerges. We have great ability to create, sustain, and destroy life. There is an essence to us.
If you are a parent, look into your children’s eyes. You helped bring this creative being into this world and sustain their life. Look at the state of the world, you helped contribute to destroying it. Just by being alive, you create, sustain, and destroy life. That is how it is, it’s nature; the need for cycles. But to push the earth to the point that we may not be able to sustain human life on earth? By swinging the pendulum of action from one extreme to the next. That’s unsettling. As a collective, we need a spiritual intervention. A spiritual cleanse. We need to wake up and see what we are doing and how we can change the way we operate. Realize who we are and why we decided to be this way.
We need to learn controlled destruction and purposeful right action.
We can look to the soil for ways to do this. Soil creates, sustains, and destroys life and reveals balance and imbalance. Through the “imperfections” we can see various lifeforms in the plant, microbe, insect, and animal kingdom ability to thrive. For example, when you plant a tomato don’t give it the right conditions for it to thrive, pests appear and start to feed on the tomato, killing your precious tomato and returning its nutrients to replenish the soil. However, you can redeem your plant by bringing attention to it. When there is focused attention, you start to see how it functions. If you give your tomato plant attention it starts to communicate by giving signs. If it looks like it is leaning towards the direction where full sun is available, the leaves are starting to become spotted, yellowed and a bit droopy. You then realize that maybe you need to plant the tomato where there is full sun, the soil may not be wet enough or too wet, that the soil needs compost and to be covered with organic matter, and last but not least, plant nasturtium and marigolds near it (friends). Of course, right off the bat, you wouldn’t know these things unless you’ve been gardening for awhile, but by giving attention secrets will start to be revealed. You may even start to include soil testing and get down to the elements and microbial makeup of the soil, which is great by the way!
When there is attention, intention soon follows. Our soul functions the same way as the soils’ soul does. Our signs of suffering and a need for balance reveal themselves through our thoughts, emotions, and actions, while the soil shows its’ way of suffering through manifestations of microbe, plant, insect, and animal life. It may even have emotions, but that is more subtle, and currently beyond my understanding.
But how do we understand what our soul wants when we live in a society that tells us what we want and how we should want it?
That’s where I get into astrology. Astrology is an art and science of the cosmos and the human soul. Through understanding the cosmos’ blueprint of your soul, we can then see what is it that your soul is wanting to express and manifest in this life. How do I do this? By bringing attention to your Moon and Pluto placement. When I bring attention to your Moon and Pluto placement, with your permission, I am able to see where your soul is restrained and desired to be released. I help you bring attention to yourself and create a new intention geared towards your well being. It’s possible then to heal yourself and the soil, which pushes toward healing the earth and all who live on it.
That is why one of my core beliefs is to heal the soul and then the soil, or even better, heal the soul while healing the soil because then you are in alignment to who you are meant to be and how you are meant to impact the world, effectively.
Blessings to you and may you continue on the journey to be connected to your soul and the earth. If you don’t want to do this alone, you can join me and others on this vast journey toward healing by signing up for my Soul and Earth newsletter,
