Journeys of an Earth Intuitive
Journeys of an Earth Intuitive
By Sarah Root*
These days I feel my heartbeat as the heartbeat of the
Earth. When I breathe, I feel breathed by all of nature. And it feels like I
have come home.
For many years there has been a calling within me to
connect deeply to the Earth. As a child I spent hours walking in nature every
day, immersed in a sensory communion that flooded me with well-being and
assistance. I took that merging for granted. I don't anymore. Now after decades
of other jobs I am able to truly heed the call to return to my childhood way of
life: living in alignment with nature, actively using my skills as an Earth
Intuitive and Earth Energy Worker.
I feel Earth's life force energy in my body. I sense
Earth's soul (sometimes called Gaia) and also the spirit within every part of
the natural world. For example, one busy afternoon as I was walking to the
mailbox, I heard a woodpecker tapping gently on a tree in search of food.
Instantly my tension drained, I was acutely aware of being connected to all of
nature, and I heard the words "all is well; you are home". Nature spirits
communicate with us like this in images, sensations and emotions... and they
channel the innate healing powers of nature to us. Now, whenever I need that
reassurance of belonging to the web of all life, I can call in the vibrational
healing energy of "woodpecker tapping".
As an Earth Intuitive it's my "job" to keep my heart finely
attuned to nature: to go through each day being open, receptive, listening; to
follow what is calling me. The first thing each morning, I reach outdoors with
all my senses, welcoming the day and the spirits of nature. A half hour prayer
walk in the forest, feeling deep appreciation for the beauty around me, serves
as gratitude practice. That is followed by a long meditation (orchestrated by my
guides) in which I may receive deep energy clearing, shamanic journeys or
extensive messages about how to help heal humans or the Earth using Earth
energies. By this I am led. Afternoons find me being co-creative with whatever
called to me from the world of nature and spirit: writing, crafting, or spending
more time outdoors. The work is to keep showing up face to face with nature.
What I receive from nature comes as sensations, knowings
and images, with occasional words. It is such an honor to sense the energies and
messages in living things! Last fall I was taking a quiet walk barefoot in the
oak woods. Shifting into a state of heightened awareness, I attuned to the
energy of different spots: a stone wall called me to do some sort of work there,
a group of birches offered me the healing vibration of exuberance, and one
powerful corner of the woodland clearly didn't want me to approach yet. Later I
returned to dialog with the spirits of each site by following each sensation or
image. I respectfully reciprocated by carrying out their detailed instructions.

There is a special fascination for me in finding the sacred
spots, also called "thin places" or portals, in nature. I feel their power.
Activating sacred spots through ceremony and energy work opens a direct channel
to Earth's heart. This is a profound source of life force energy and spiritual
connection. Opening this flow of "Earth chi" is needed all across the planet and
it seems to be one of my missions to help. Indeed, we can all help; any spot at
all can be activated to some degree simply by bringing a deep, heartfelt
awareness and appreciation. It will invite a wellspring of vital spiritual
energy right where we live.
I believe we are all being called to create a conscious and
intuitive relationship with the Earth. If this interests you, I would love to
help you deepen in this way through an Earth Reading, Energy Work or Earth
