Humans are mammals living within a larger living being – Earth. Another way of thinking about the context of ourselves within the planet is the planet within us. We are host to many parasites, to cancer cells mostly inactive, bacteria and so on living symbiotically with us. Most of us have forgotten that we are animals and we have lost our connection to our home – the planet that sustains us. It isn’t enough to think about a connection to Earth and be connected. Thinking keeps us in the realm of thought and the mind. Thinking about being connected to the planet may be a romantic notion that continues to keep us disconnected. It is thought and the technology of thinking mainly language that has aided us in our disconnection from Earth. The nature of language and how we have used it has laid the groundwork for the objectification of Earth as a thing. Modern Capitalism has defiled Earth into resources or things.
Our bodies are ordinarily grounded to Earth. But we are not always present in our bodies so the grounding visualization is ideal for feeling a connection to Earth and having a personal relationship with her. Due to our focus on and in our minds we don’t have much awareness of our bodies and how they relate to one another and the environment both human-made and nature. We treat our bodies as vehicles of consciousness and thus make our bodies things to be used. Experience becomes objectified and we are cut off from our bodies, our emotions and even from our minds. The disconnection spreads to see people and earth as things. We become more easily manipulated and eventually enslaved from this kind of disconnection.
Earth: At the core of Earth is an iron ore crystalline sphere rotating four degrees faster than the surface of earth as it floats in the liquid magma at Earth’s center. Surrounding the magma is the magnetic core. Surrounding the magnetic core are all the layers of rock divided by volcanic fissures. The Iron Ore crystal contains the codes for all organic and in-organic body-beings in the biosphere. The Iron Ore is earth’s heart because it allows life and the magnetic field (aura) to exist. By connecting to the core on a daily basis one can develop a personally intimate connection with earth that goes beyond words.
This is a sacred process. When we feel Earth as mother and friend the threads of sacredness spread out to include all beings organic and inorganic. Sense, feel and envision our planet as a friend and our participation with Earth as a harmonious celebration of life.
