Gaia

“The Earth has music for those who listen.” | William Shakespeare

Take a moment and sink in all that Gaia, the goddess of Earth, has to offer us. Go for a hike, a walk along the beach, a swim in the ocean, or better yet, do yoga in the outdoors, and just listen. Listen to Her and She will play you the most beautiful, most soothing music one can hear… all you have to do is listen.

We are in Puerto Rico for some much needed R&R, and today we took a hike in El Yunque, the National Rainforest, to La Mina Falls. To hear the trees swaying in the breeze, the waterfalls crashing into the freshwater pool below, and the little critters moving around in their natural habitat was just as relaxing as waking up to ocean waves crashing into the shore.

Gaia is there, always, waiting for you to stop and listen. And no, you don’t need to escape to paradise to find Her. But sometimes we all need a reminder that She’s there. She’s everywhere. So do be conscious of Her next time you go for a run or just a brisk walk. I will be next time.
