Put Down The Phone
For 2021 the Chinese zodiac has rotated back to the year of the Golden Cow. It is also associated with the White Ox and the Metal Bull. For most people as long as it is not the year of 2020 it will be a good year.
Could it also be the year of PDTP? No, that is not a spelling mistake for the PTSD many might feel from the impact of the Covid pandemic. PDTP here means Put Down The Phone. Put it away and look up at the world around you.
No doubt you have had the experience of jumping out of the way from someone who is walking down the street while immersed in the world of their phone. I bet we all have been that person once. When we do this we are oblivious to others who have to avoid us so we don’t crash into each other. What message or instrgram post was so much more important than respect and safety?
Put Down The Phone. Put it away and engage with your surroundings.
Here is a 5 minute exercise to give you power over your phone.
You are going to send a message. But you ask ‘How do I send a message without using my phone?’ Good question.
By using your mind.
Do you mind 🙂 … using your mind?
To use your mind you need to focus. The first step to focus (once you’ve put the phone down) is to breathe.
Let your breath help you relax your shoulders.
Keep collecting a few more life carrying breaths … now connect with nature.
Send your focus to something you see or imagine a place you know. It can be a plant in your home or a forest you love to frequent.

Breathe into your connection.
Allow your mental connection to fill your body. The connection can travel. Through your arteries – flavouring your blood – loading into your bones.
Maybe you will remain in this ‘loading the bones with energy’ state for a few minutes; and then you send your message to nature. Or it could be that you will cycle through the mind-arteries-bones-veins-mind-message-to-nature a few times in your 5 minutes.
Your mental/emotional offering flows into your mind, towards your anchor point of connection. You send your Authentic Intelligence in the form of your appreciation, or perhaps wonder or positive possibility.
Bask in the feeling of well-being from participating in nature, with the planet. Give, if you choose, your 5 minute process a name. Repeat it. Share it, if you wish.
Nature Spirits – Man as a totem Pole

What in the world do Nature Spirits have to do with the education of a man so he is a totem pole of warmth and protection for his spouse?
Nature Spirits are always and everywhere connected to their nature and the moment and their purpose. Imagine if a man could say the same.
How does a man connect with his nature, elevate in the moment, adhere to their purpose?
A few thoughts …
What are Nature Spirits. Nature Spirits are the religious life of planet Earth. The spirits of the wilderness are the abundant energy that resonates from the spinning earth. They are natural and are integral in your well being in various ways. In every life. If you have a soul you are an anchor for nature spirits. That makes you important to nature. That means you are appreciated by nature. Nature being planet Earth. Your home. Your power source.
If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of a soul. Or you as a soul bearing being – that’s ok.
Read these words slowly. Know that you have a soul; that you inhabit a planetary soul. That your soul registers the energy of nature spirits. When at peace anyone can sense this energy. When we get stuff done in our day we generate Satisfaction. Satisfaction is the foundation for peace. So the homework of connecting with nature is being good at your Satisfaction to be able to offer to others and nature a man at peace.

What the Nature Spirits need to know is the real you. They can mesh with the you of now. Not the Ego based needy version of some guy. What they seek is the you that loves responding to the call for a man. To do and to be. Not that the man knows everything. Far from it. They love the imperfect man that wants to grow. That accepts his faults because his human qualities are a better reflection of who he is. Highlighting his strengths is a better investment than correcting his faults.
It is crucial that a man understand he is wanted. Wanted by his family. Wanted by the powers of religion. Moved by religion. Animated by a relevant power to push into the world. To surge into the day. The amazing matrix with which a man can do all this everyday is the soul.
The soul is the amplifier of your passion, your emotion, your belief. Yours. No one else’s.
It simply cannot provide soul service to another body. Because you and your soul are intricately, beautifully and fatality intertwined. No body can decide for you the relationship you as an adult have with your soul.
Without a doubt you have programming from your childhood that impacts your decision making whether they are good habits or traumatizing events. Now you are an adult and you decide your habits, routines and rituals. Let’s say habits are more for the Ego, routines for your Best
Ego and Rituals for your Devotional life – the Higher Soul.
All three of these use your history that lives in your blood and your resonance from your bones as a source of power. Power to connect with nature and higher perception. Power to project rejuvenating energy to someone else. Power to keep learning how to use your Best Ego to help get your Satisfaction that generates peace to welcome healing Nature Spirits into your life.
Connect, Elevate, Adhere.
Go Man Go.
