Notes from Theresa:
Many of us wish to nurture, help, protect and support the planet and Her life systems, but the damage to the Earth is so severe, we also understand that we may be beyond the tipping point. Because of this, many of our current efforts may feel futile. What can a prayer or making offerings do to help with the climate crisis and extinction rates that are upon us?
In an effort to help those of us who want to stay engaged while remaining aware of the annihilation and collapse of life systems that is currently occurring on our planet, I pondered and asked what we could possibly do to help the Earth from a spiritual perspective. It was tough. I had to push through a lot of grief to even listen for a message, but I did and I was told that co-dreaming with the Earth is one thing that we can do to attend to the spiritual dimensions of this crisis.
We can listen to the soul of the planet in the darkness and collaborate with her. We can rest and help Earth rest. We can synch with Earth and dream with Earth and come into intimate relationship with her evolutionary processes.
I offer this journey in the spirit of entering the ancient dream incubation temples and communing with the soul of the planet and listening for what she has to say.
