The earth hums beneath our feet. There is an energy present, which we can become aware of in each and every moment. It helps us to deepen our connection to the earth, to the land, to the ancestors and the spirits of place. Those who have walked this land before, whose bones and blood, leaves and wood, stones and pebbles make up this land, their energy is contained within. So too are the energies of wind and rain, of sunlight, starlight and moonlight, shining down on us. We are hurtling through space at infinite speeds, spinning in an endless cycle of birth and death. In that cosmic dance, there is energy, the push and pull of the planets and our nearest star, the dance of orbiting moons. Open yourself to this energy, let it wash through your soul and awaken your heart to the wonder of the world.
The energy of the land may differ, depending on where we are in the world. Each land has its own unique signature, yet always contains similarities as well, for we share this planet and, deep at its core, is a heart of fire that is the spark of awen which we can tap into wherever we go. Right here, right now, in this land of Suffolk, I can feel the energy of the land, feel it beneath my feet, place my hands upon the earth and connect with it. You too can practice this connection wherever you are, seeing how the energies differ, seeing how they are the same at various places.
