33 Steps To Align Your Connection With Earth

Today, we are taking a journey towards authenticity and interconnectedness with Earth.

Go through the following steps to activate a new relationship with Earth, Goddess Gaia and with yourself. By doing this mindfully, you are activating new programming that empowers your earth star chakra and awakens your deepest connection as a child of Earth.

Each step takes you closer to fulfilment.  The steps don’t have to be followed in the order they are arranged here, take each step as it presents itself to you.  You are not finished until you complete all the steps. If you can’t go out into nature to do this, it’s okay to visualise it.

Step 1 – Go out into nature and affirm, loud and clear, “I acknowledge and accept my connection to Earth.”  Really feel it.  When you make this acknowledgement, something fundamental shifts between yourself and the Earth.

Step 2 – Standing in nature, notice there are beautiful roots going down from your feet into the Earth, they extend through earth, sand, rock, crystal.  You become aware of the true beauty and wonder of Earth. Honour it, say out loud, “I actively honour the Earth.”

Step 3 – Go to any place you find beautiful in nature and really see it.  Breathe in the beauty.  Enjoy the beauty.  Be grateful for the beauty.  Know that all beautiful places are power spots, they are raising your energy simply by being there.

Step 4 – Go out in nature and walk on the Earth with awareness, knowing it’s a two-way connection.  As you’re walking, be very aware of your energy going right down into the planet, and at the same time, know you are receiving energy back from the Earth. 

Step 5 – Actively give your light to Earth through your twelve chakras. Go into nature and call on Archangel Michael and ask for protection. Now, standing still, open your stellar gateway chakra above your head, allowing the light to pour through it. Next, open your soul star chakra. Then open your causal chakra, your crown chakra, your third eye chakra, your throat chakra, your higher heart and heart chakras. Notice your inner light pouring down and through your chakras as you open them. Now open your solar plexus chakra, your sacral chakra and your base chakra. Allow all the light energy to flow down through the open channels of your chakras and into your earth star chakra below your feet in the Earth. See and feel the light coming right down through your chakras and then spreading out beneath your feet, at your earth star chakra, in all directions. It’s spreading peace and harmony.

Step 6 – Standing in nature, sense roots going down through your feet and into the Earth.  Within the Earth, there is a crystalline chamber at the core and there stands Goddess Gaia.  She is like a great light and your roots are going down and connecting your energy into her heart.  Her love is coming up into your earth star chakra, filling it with her love.  And then her love and light come up through your chakras into your heart centre, filling your heart with her love. 

Step 7 – Take a fruit that you enjoy.  Hold it in your hand.  Smell it, feel it, bless it and thank it.  Really appreciate and honour it. 

Step 8 – Go out into nature to touch and feel the soil.  Pick up the rich earth, smell it, feel it.  Enjoy the wonderful feeling of beautiful, fertile soil running through your fingers. Share a deep sense of gratitude and love for this earth, honour it and bless it.

Step 9 – Go out and find a special tree.  Feel, hold and touch the tree.  Thank it for being there and for all that it does for humanity, Mother Earth and the source of all-there-is. As you share your love and gratitude, sense the love that the tree is sharing with you. Honour your tree and all trees.

Step 10 – Go out and find an acorn, chestnut or any other tree seed.  Ask the elementals to show you where to place it in the Earth to grow. Give your love and blessings to it. 

Step 11 – Go out into nature and find a place where it feels totally safe to walk barefoot.  Feel the Earth, grass or sand beneath your feet.  Notice how you feel connected to the Earth when you are barefoot.  Know that this connection is activating your earth star chakra.    

Step 12 – Go out and find a flower, whatever flower presents itself to you.  What colour is it?  What does it smell like?  Gently stroke a petal and thank that flower for being in your life.

Step 13 – Go out and find a place where there’s water.  Paddle in the stream or sea, stand by a lake.  Water is sacred, water carries the pure, unconditional love of the divine source around the world.  Bless that water.  Bless it whether it’s a puddle, a raindrop, an ocean or a river.  Bless the water that you shower or bathe in, that you drink, that washes your excrement away in the toilet, bless the water that constitutes your body. 

Step 14 – Go outside and take a deep breath, this is prana, it gives you life, it is your connection to source.  Breathe in, knowing that you are alive through your breath. Give thanks for the air that you breathe every day. 

Step 15 – Be with fire, it may be in your hearth, an outside fire pit or bonfire, or candle flames.  See the flames flickering and crackling and transmuting old energy.  Know that every flame is clearing something, leaving just ashes behind.  Be aware that something brand new is replacing the old.  And be aware of how awesome and powerful the transmuting power of fire is. Honour the fire energy.

Step 16 – Go outside into nature and invite the creatures and animals to come to you.  Sit quietly, lovingly and harmlessly.  Because you are harmless, animals and creatures will approach you.  A squirrel, an ant, whatever comes, see their beauty, see their amazing qualities.  Notice which animals came to you and thank them for coming.

Step 17 – Go outside into nature to a suitable place with the intention of honouring the reptiles.  Sit quietly, lovingly and harmlessly.  See what comes to you, maybe a lizard or snake.  Whatever comes, know they are totally harmless.  See their beauty and amazing qualities.  They each bring gifts and are a teacher.  Thank them for coming.

Step 18 – Go outside with the intention of connecting with the birds.  Stand or sit and let the birds come and fly around you.  Songbirds singing to you of the daily news and your magnificence.  A bird of prey soaring high in the sky, demonstrating clarity and perspective.  All the birds are teaching us about freedom.  Thank the birds from your heart.

Step 19 – Go to a green and leafy place.  Notice all the beautiful greens of healing nature surrounding you.  Marvel at the process of photosynthesis and how it keeps us alive.  Feel a sense of wonder for the greenery around you, how uplifting and refreshing it is.  Thank the leaves and ferns for all they give.

Step 20 – Go to a place in nature where there’s a rock.  You might sit on it.  It’s an ancient stone, solid and enduring.  It may have been there for millions of years, keeping and recording the history of that place.  Sit there with it and tune into it.  Maybe it has a message for you.  Thank the rock and send it your blessing.

Step 21 – Go to a place where there are crystals.  Your task is to send healing to the Earth where crystals have been dug out.  Be aware of the crystals that have developed deep, deep in the Earth, holding so much light.  Take a moment to send healing energy deep into the Earth where crystals are removed.  Send your love and gratitude to all crystals that allow themselves to be brought to the surface to fulfil a calling and that offer healing and transformation for the Earth and humanity.

Step 22 – Go outside when the stars are bright in the sky.  Sense their link to Earth and how all is interconnected.  How do the stars influence you?  Notice how vast the cosmos is and how every single star is relevant to the whole.  Send your loving gratitude and blessings to all the stars.

Step 23 – Go to the sea and call forth the dolphins.  Whether you see them or not, know they are there, hearing you.  Can you sense the compassion and healing heart that all dolphins have?  Sense and acknowledge the loving, healing compassion offered by the dolphins to you.  Thank them sincerely and extend to them your blessing.    

Step 24 – Go to the sea and be aware of all the ocean life and fish, all in their place, all doing their bit to support the vast oceans.  Every kind of fish and sea creature has a role, so thank them all for their important roles, honour them and the ocean.

Step 25 – Be still and bring to mind the entirety of the planet and all of humanity.  Every single person on Earth, like yourself, received an invitation from Goddess Gaia to be here and for many, it’s a very difficult journey.  Take a moment to honour and recognise every courageous soul that came here, whether they are good or bad in our perspective.  Honour everyone for being here.

Step 26 – Take a moment to be still.  Be aware that everything and everyone is a part of the divine source.  All are one.  Truly, deeply recognise this. Take a moment to offer your gratitude to all-that-is.

Step 27 – Go outside and feel the sun on your skin, even though you cannot look directly at it, you can feel it.  Thank the great and glorious sun for all it does, bringing warmth and light to Earth and us all.  Honour the sun.  

Step 28 – Go outside under the full moon and honour the moon.  The silvery moon is lighting up the world with gentle, soothing and healing light throughout the night.  Take a moment to thank and honour the moon.

Step 29 – There are many structures built by our ancestors that are created as energy portals.  Such are called chambered cairns, stone circles, pyramids.  Go to such a place if you can and acknowledge that it was built by wise ancestors who understood a deep and abiding connection with Earth.  Feel the connection.  Honour all these structures and their builders. 

Step 30 – Go to the mountains.  They hold high energies and beings dwell there that sing out harmonics and raise the frequency of the world.  Honour these vast places and sense their awe. Ground it through your earth star chakra.

Step 31 – Go to the forest, know that all forests of the world are connected by a great network of underground, invisible fibres and roots.  The forests are a huge library of knowledge, holders of cosmic information.  A storehouse of wisdom.  Be aware of the vast forests on Earth, honour them and give gratitude for their many gifts.

Step 32 – Go within and honour the invisible world.  The unseen shares our space.  All around us, at all times, there are elementals, angels, dragons, unicorns and spirits of all kinds.  They are helping us raise our energies, guiding us. Take a moment to thank and honour them all, for they support and illuminate our way.   

Step 33 – Go within and accept the other dimensions.  We live in a world that exists as much more than just physically.  We are multi-dimensional, multi-faceted and are surrounded and interwoven with other multi-dimensional energies and beings.  Accept them all as a part of your reality and experience, for it is the truth of your being. 

When you have fulfilled all these steps, you will have awakened light-codes and blueprints that exist within your energy field, that will refresh and reset your purity and perfection as a daughter or son of Earth.

Blessed Be.

A New Take On Authenticity

The other day, I was walking up on my mountain and entered an energy of deeper alertness towards all of nature around me. As I noticed this, I began to receive insights about authenticity on a new level.

We may think authenticity means being an honest and genuine person who is centred in their truth, as least, that’s more or less how I was looking at it. But all of a sudden, I realised authenticity goes a whole lot deeper.

Authenticity is to be stripped right down to our pure presence. Would we even recognise our pure presence if it was staring us in the face? We might call it our savage or primitive self.

We would be bare naked, not only physically but in every sense, emotionally, mentally, energetically.

And even if we stripped off all our clothes and rubbed earth or mud or ash over our bodies, we are not authentic until we do that to our heart and mind also.

Authenticity exists on that fine precipice between life and death. It’s basic, it’s knowing we are one with the Earth and nature, and living it in every moment.

A Western man was in the Amazon with a local tribesman. He was learning how to be a shaman. The Westerner asked the tribesman, “Why is it that when I walk into the forest, all the animals and birds stop calling. It’s as though the jungle is devoid of life. But when you walk in, the forest is alive with sound?”

“The forest recognises my spirit but doesn’t know yours. You smell wrong, your mind is full of distractions, your emotions are not controlled and your body doesn’t know how to move. You don’t know who you are so the forest doesn’t know who you are. You are not one with the forest.”

“How do I become one with the forest?”

“For a start, let go of all the baggage you’re carrying.”


Here are some affirmations that will empower your connection with the Earth through your earth star chakra. Look out for Thursday’s post for more:

“I acknowledge and accept my connection to Earth.”

“I actively honour the Earth.”

“I am connected to Source through my breath.”

Calling in the Temple of Light

Imagine a Temple of Light.  A round, white tower, short and squat, with a domed roof.  There is a circular glass aperture in the centre of the domed roof, through which enters the sun’s rays and the glittering starlight of the darkest night.

Inside, a circle of nine sit together.  Each of them is a powerful energy-worker.  Collectively, they make the air crackle with their unified power.  They are deep in meditation.  There is a low hum in the air, a vocalisation brought forth from the throats of several present.  And there is the clear, piercing ring of a singing crystal bowl which seems to roll around the walls, a tone that thrusts deep into the heart of all who hear it. 

Most would not have sight to see, but there are fine white fibres, like roots, extending from the root chakras of the nine and probing deep into the earth. There is a column of golden light, within which each person sits, creating a circle of nine golden columns. There are nine cones of purest white light, each extending from the crown of a head, expanding more and more in the shape of a V as they rise up into the cosmic heights. There is a waterfall of light descending through the glass roof and falling into the centre of the circle, creating a puddle of liquid light that flows over the floor. The light is mostly white, with rainbows and specks of gold. The puddle of light spills to every part of the room.

The sense of peace in this room is deeply profound. The depth of love in the room would be almost unbearable for some. The power in this room is tangible.

There are many others here, unseen to the untrained eye.  They are the spirit guides, souls, soul family and loved ones in spirit of the nine.  There are angels present, dragons and unicorns.  There are elemental beings who are the consciousness of nature.  There are ascended masters, Goddess beings, star beings.  They are here to lend support and many are excited to be witness to this moment.  And there are people sitting around the edge, on cushions with their backs against the wall.  They are here from near and far because they wish to participate, to experience the peace, the love, the light, the truth, the healing.

The nine are ordinary people whose gifts include a deep connection with the vibration of the divine source.  Not only given but accepted and embraced by each of them.  Practiced and dedicated they are.  Committed to service.  They work with many energies for the healing, awakening and ascension of Mother Earth and all that is upon, above and within the Earth, invisible and visible.  And also for humanity. 

Right now, they are receiving light matrix energy templates for grounding and anchoring the healing of traumas for the entirety of humanity.  Through them, collective trauma is being healed for all.

Tomorrow, they will sit together to extend the understanding and ability to connect, communicate and co-create with the intelligence in all plants and trees. So that all those on Earth can see, sense or feel the presence of the elementals, tree and plant spirits and nature beings. And so people on Earth can connect with those energies to support the Earth’s ascension.

Each day, the nine come together to channel and express their love, light and power because the Temple of Light exists to fulfil this purpose.  They are a beacon, a model for all who come.

And this is my dream, for I am one of the nine.  This is what the new Earth ascension blueprint revealed to me in Spring 2020. I send out love and gratitude that this shall exist in the physical as it exists in the etheric.  I send out energy to draw this to me now.  This, I anchor as my soul purpose.  This, I am calling into existence now.  And if you have access to any of the energies required to bring this to fruition, please let me know.

Let it be so.

Standing As Earth Invocation

Blessings and greetings from this Earth-soul to all Earth-souls.

Between the 14th of January and the 13th of February, I am one of many ‘Standing as Earth’, participating in a social media experiment that explores what it means to create from, speak and stand as something that is bigger than my individual self in this time of shift and renewal.

We are exploring how the medium of social media can support the emergence of creating something beyond our personal self but still be personal, subverting the personality and ego traps that we are all susceptible to in using Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and instead using them to stand and speak as the Earth in this time of planetary initiation.

I am excited to be involved in the experiment because I am an advocate for unity consciousness and this is an opportunity to see something beautiful and creative unfold towards that actuality, in a big, bold and concrete way.  For myself, I see our journey taking us all to a place of such oneness, such unity, that we are one with not only the Earth but the Cosmos and thus, Divine Presence.  I look forward to the day when all the people on Facebook and Instagram are identifying as ‘Divine Presence’ with a personal photo of a blazing light or field of white.  A day when we see each other’s divinity before all else, when we feel and sense the divinity within ourselves as our place from which we feel, think, speak and act in all matters. 

Beloved Mother Earth already knows this place of divinity within, so do we and we are remembering to find it inside ourselves again now.  By embracing our beloved Mother Earth in unity, we are opening up to our truth and our greatest expression of being. 

I would like to take a moment to express my deep gratitude to those who have been the fertile place where this experiment took root, thank you for keeping it safe and enabling it to grow into the beautiful blossoming creation it is now and will become. 

Thank you to every soul who is standing beside me in this experiment.  We are one and unconditional love flows freely between us all.  What we are building here is greater and more powerful than the most destructive weapon humanity ever tried to build.  This is what power is for, the power of love and unity.  Nothing can stand against us when we are all standing as Earth.
