Return to who you were before the world tamed you.
Dear Pilgrim, Dear Seeker, Dear Initiate,
Once upon a time, you were a barefoot, feral child who befriended bugs and talked with trees. Until you were told it was all "make believe," and you stopped trusting yourself and your relationship with the natural world around you.
When you are disconnected from nature, you are disconnected from yourself. This disconnection can cause you to feel like you are unworthy, unsupported and without a sense of true belonging. You can end up spinning into cycles of self-doubt, looking to others for validation, and pushing yourself harder and harder for a fulfillment that seems out of reach.
The natural world longs to be in relationship with you again. If you are reading this, the wild within you is calling, all you have to do is answer.
What is the Wild Within?
Do you hear a call from deep within your core for something unnamed, untamed that does not exist in the world of modernity, something much more ancient that you can't quite pinpoint?
Have you searched for it everywhere in therapy, meditation, wellness retreats, on the yoga mat, in the media, but you've only been able to graze its meaning, never able to fully integrate and embody this craving for something more?
Does your yearning feel elusive, only rarely quenched in dreams, in trance, in myth, art and music, and always in nature?
The wild within is the part of you that can reach into the darkest night and pull out a seed of enormous transformation to heal the whole world,
the part of you that cries from long ago ancestral pasts into the far away future,
the part of you that makes magic of stones, casts spells with songs, shifts energy with your hands, reaps the wisdom of trees, howls in the moonless night,
the part of you that does not shy away from the taboo but laughs at it with a trickster yelp and welcomes it in for supper.
Being connected to the wild within allows you to:
- Love yourself and know your own unconditional self-worth without needing external validation
- Make self-care, rest, and restoration an integral part of your life, not just for special times or weekends.
- Feel rooted, supported and grounded, so you can easily ebb and flow with the current of life, at peace with divine timing.
- Trust that the universe supports you, even when it doesn’t feel that way.
- Be present and fully embodied with all your senses alive.
- Experience the contentment of inherent gratitude for the simple things in life.
- Reconnect to your true self & remember your life purpose as an intrinsic part in the whole of existence.
- Remember the magic of childhood when every tree was a friend and every butterfly a potential fairy.
- Absorb nature’s healing properties.
"The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff."
-Carl Sagan, astronomer
“The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth.
All things are connected like the blood that unites one family.
Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it.
Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.
The earth is sacred and men and animals are but one part of it.
Treat the earth with respect so that it lasts for centuries to come and is a place of wonder and beauty for our children.”
I'm a Nature Intuitive and the creatrix here at All of Us Stardust.
All of Us Stardust offers online courses in nature therapy and eco-spirituality, in-person forest bathing, retreats and membership programs.
Our overall process begins with shifting our MINDSET. Next, we rediscover our innate INTUITION, dive into the magic of the MYTHIC IMAGINAL of personal and collective archetypes, and then we explore the sensual realm of BODYFULNESS, where we are present with all our senses awake. Lastly, we explore RIGHT RELATIONSHIP, creating a reciprocal relationship with nature, the divine and ourselves. This multilayer process integrates mind, body and psyche with MAGIC, connecting all aspects of ourselves to the natural world to return us to who we were always meant to be.
When I'm not in creation mode, you can find me gardening, working on my off-grid strawbale home, or hiking with my husband and teen daughter along the Rio Grande Gorge, a spectacular 800 foot deep canyon in northern New Mexico on the ancestral lands of the Red Willow People.Learn more about Johanna
