The Earth is alive. Earth energies are the subtle expression of the ‘life’, in the trees, streams, landforms that are all around us.
The subtle Earth energies associated with a particular place
effect what is possible in that place.
If your organisational mission is aligned with the place where you are, it is as if a gentle breeze is always lifting you and making things easier. If you are out of alignment with the land energies, you will constantly battle. It will be like walking through mud, or you will continually come up against obstacles.
It is the same for us as individuals. Some places have Earth energies that suit us, we feel happy there.
The same essence of ‘life’ that animates you and me also animates a tree, or a stream or a mountain.
Each life form has its own frequency, its own agency and a desire to achieve its greatest potential.
Earth Energy Walks
Land energy walks can occur in any natural place. They can even occur in unnatural places such as houses or community streets. The essential component is that you attune your energy to ‘feel’ the subtle energies of place within the designated area.
You use your body as the thermometer.
Allow your subtle energy to interact with the subtle energies around you.
There are a few simple techniques that with practice will reveal a whole landscape of subtle energies. By breathing into the Life in your body for example, you can end up breathing with the Earth.
By dropping your energy down below your feet you can experience energy that feels like the source of life itself. You can experience imprints from past people. You can get a sense of what has occurred in a location at some other time.
The Earth is our playground waiting for us to reveal the divinity and life at its essence.
Things to Experience
People experience visceral tangible feelings like when you meet a friend. You get a sense how they feel. Coming away from a land energy walk your subtle bodies are changed, you can feel spread, open.
You can feel like as if your energy is shared with other life forms.
Imprints from past inhabitants
Earth energy activities are best to occur where you are in the place where you are deeply connected. A good amount of time is a couple of hours initially, but I have explored my home property for years.
Walks can occur as an individual or in groups.
If you are an organization I recommend exploring the land energies where your offices or headquarters are located. You may be surprised at how much they affect what is possible for your company.
Helen’s book, Across the Creek – Land energy experiences in the home paddock. It is the earth energy story of ‘Booroola’, the property where she grew up in Central West NSW Australia.
‘Have courage and read, fall deeply into the world that Helen brings us in, Across the Creek, if you dare‘. …….Amy R USA.
Land energy walks
This is the first ‘live’ I caught, connecting to the core of the Earth, my body remembering “I am this”, a sense of wonder “How could I forget?” and relief “I feel home”. The simple third eye technique reminding me that “I am”. It is Inspiring to meditate, albeit briefly, with a group online, I wasn’t sure if it would work in any meaningful way. It did. Helen’s approach is inviting, she is cognizant of other traditions and respected that each person may have their own way of going inside, while at the same time gently bringing us to a state of consciousness beyond the mind.
Dr. Helen Russ has written an important addition to the bibliography on the subject of the subtle realm of land energies. Her artwork depicts her actual experiences on the faded out photographic representation of the physical realm. The spaces are tangible and the reader is brought on an intimate journey into the depths of the Australian land and given a glimpse of Aboriginal spirituality and relationship to the land.
If you want the real deal, Helen Russ’s new book ‘Across the Creek’ invites you to open your perception to the unseen of the world. Beautifully implemented and presented, beginners can engage for themselves, to have direct experience and understanding of land energies, consciousness, and yourself. It is also a step towards understanding the mystical consciousness of our indigenous peoples and an invitation to step towards their world view and experience, that we may all find healing and the commonality of our spiritual roots. Helen’s book is a window and training in applied consciousness. It is a powerful adjunct to meditation. Like a smorgasbord, you take what you want. The feast is a set of tools for life that if you choose to exercise, will change your view of the world forever.
