The rich & luscious smell of a forest floor. Breathing in the sweetness of waterfalls. Swimming in babbling streams. Rolling around in grassy meadows. Being mesmerised by the miracle of new life cuddling a puppy to my heart.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE it all— my wild passionate love affair with life, nature, all living things.
This wondrous, mystical, and joyous condition is called Biophilia… the delight & life-nourishing experience that nature brings to the body, mind & soul.
It’s in our Nature
Humans are a part of nature, so it makes sense that our inherent LOVE of nature resides deep within our DNA.
As I shared in my Unlocking the Light of Humanity journal post, our Human Mitochondria are in fact evolutionary Bacterium. YES…. we have evolved through the the mircrobes of Earth— Anima Realm.
Is it really any wonder then when we spend time in nature breathing in the Biome that we feel at home hanging with our ancestry?
Nature is poetically in our nature. In our DNA. In our Mitochondria. In the DNA that reside within our Mitochondria. And in the trillions of microcobes that inhabit our body, out numbering our human cells 10:1.
Have you heard of Shinrin-yoku (森林浴)— the Japanese practice of “forest bathing”, an ecotherapy & mindful practice for wellbeing?
The artform is very simple, Shinrin-yoku is the practice of spending time in a forested sanctuary and engaging all your senses as you immerse your self through smell, taste, touch, sounds & the visual oasis of a forest that is alive.
Forest bathing calms the nervous system, reduces blood pressure, and balances adrenaline/cortisol levels. A sense of peace, tranquility, and harmony floods through the body.
The awe & wonderment of the natural world catapults you into a different sphere of consciousness, a feeling of deep integration with something much greater than yourself. An immersive experience of joy & euphoric bliss floods the body in the feel good drug of life!
The picture at the top of this page— is of myself and our beautiful dog Baci at 6 weeks old. Our darling Nova Scotia Duck-Tolling Retriever (a mouthful of name I know) is nearly 18 months old now, though she still very much feels like a puppy to us.
Baci means ‘kiss’ in Italian, we named her for the white diamond that sits on her crown chakra, which in the first few months of her live was in the shape of a love heart— and we were drawn to contstantly kiss it.
Biophilia at its finest!
