Nature As Healer Series *An Introduction


…keep close to all of those things that have to do with outdoor activities, for it is the best way to keep yourself young – to stay close to nature…

Edgar Cayce Reading 3374-1

This is the first in a series of articles about how we can interact with nature, or natural substances and influences, to improve our physical and emotional health in very real ways, increasing our potential and our understanding and appreciation of life and the role we play within it.

ALL healing is mental and spiritual, NOT only physical!

Edgar Cayce Reading 1158-27

Being in tune with nature offers us the opportunity to achieve greater levels of fulfilment on every level of our being , and, as the Edgar Cayce quote above suggests, healing takes place within all elements of our being to effect change in our overall health.

You are never so wise that you won’t learn something by viewing a sunset, listening to a strain of music, the laughter of children, the song of a bird, the babbling of a brook. All have their message because they want to praise their Creator.

Edgar Cayce Reading 2869-1

The Natural World & Human Nature

The natural world, is, in fact in no way separate from our own human nature. We are an extension of the natural world and it is an extension of us. The symbiotic relationship we enjoy with nature supports us physically, mentally and spirituality, to the extent that the condition of the natural world is a direct reflection of our own inner health… if one becomes degraded, the other will inevitably follow suit.

To be in tune with our true human nature is to be in the flow of all that is; the wonder and amazingness of our existence. This means we can use a return to our true human nature to heal us, instead of living life in ways which harm. Many of us have become the most toxic inputs within our lives. A return to a state of wonder and gratitude and surrendering to the flow of life, which always works in mysterious ways, will feed us on every level of our beings, enabling us to feel more at one with ourselves and everything else in existence.

All is governed by Universal Law.

Nature Improves Immunity & Emotional Health

One of the most potent things we can do to improve digestive health, and therefore, our immune health, is to take a walk in the woods. It is also an exceptional activity for improving our emotional wellbeing.

The act of simply walking and sitting in woodland can improve every function of our body. Not that we need it, but there’s scientific research to back this up…

Health Means Wholeness

The word health has been with us since Anglo Saxon times, but sadly it’s full meaning has been lost. In it’s essence the word health means to be whole… which is to say that health means being a fully integrated and complete individual… just as nature intended.

Sadly, the more we deviate from nature, and it’s vital natural cycles, to live a more complex and stressful life, the less whole or healthy we become.

The importance of nature’s input with regards our health and well being is not the product of a wistful or romantic notion, but a very real necessity, without which we would perish. However, our dependence on technology within this information age, which is moving, at the speed of light, towards the 4th industrial revolution, or 4IR, has largely removed us from our natural state of being, rendering many of us unwell and literally starving for nature’s inputs.

But still, many of us limp on, numbed and lacking in energy and inspiration… with an aching in our hearts for the sustenance we need, but have forgotten how to find…

This article will point out the impact of our privations but will also point to the things we can do to reverse the dissembling of who we are so that we may live as fully conscious beings on this beautiful planet of ours.

We can, most certainly, return to the courageous, flexible and sentient individuals who once lived in tune with nature. And ,this return to our sensibilities will uplift our beleaguered hearts and minds, ultimately enabling us to fill the cavernous void, which has grown evermore vast since we stopped communing with nature and it’s healing ways.

Nature’s Healing Ways

There are many ways in which we can interact with the natural world, it’s energies, scents and sounds, as well as getting down and dirty with the tiny microbes, of the sand, earth and seas, all of  which we completely rely upon to populate our digestive systems, and without which we cannot survive.

There are many unseen elements in nature which sustain us and give us life, including the energetic frequencies from the sun , the ground, and all living things in between. These unseen elements help bring about healing within every human heart and mind once we venture into the unknown, and immerse ourselves in it’s healing powers.

MEDITATE, often. Separate yourself for a season from the cares of the world. Get close to nature and LEARN from the lowliest of that which manifests in nature, in the earth; in the birds, in the trees, in the grass, in the flowers, in the bees…

Edgar Cayce Reading 1089-3

Sound is the energetic frequency of the Universe. Music is one of the most powerful ways we can heal our souls. So, sometimes we don’t need to stray too far from our homes to bathe in nature’s healing ways… just dancing in your kitchen to the tunes on the radio will do you a power of good!

Music is a means or a manner of expressing harmonies of an individual in relationship to spiritual ideals and spiritual concepts.

Edgar Cayce Reading 949-13

Music should be a part of each soul’s development.

Edgar Cayce Reading 2780-3

Humans As Energetic Beings

Humans are energetic and spiritual beings as well as physical beings. We all have an energetic signatures, or frequencies, which change in accord with where we are at spiritually and psychologically.  Truth be known, it’s the health of our energetic body which ultimately determines our physical health.

In the article, The Ultimate Cause Of All Illnesses I explain how unresolved emotions are lodged within our energy field and, if left unprocessed for long enough, will most likely manifest as a physical condition / illness. This has been understood by Eastern healing traditions for thousands of years. Traditional Chines Medicine, particularly Acupuncture, and Ayurveda etc incorporate energetic healing in their diverse healing arts.

However, the West is finally acknowledging our energetic bodies also, and the way in which our emotional traumas are recorded as an energetic imprint. This is also covered in this article: The Ultimate Cause Of All Illnesses

I will be writing articles about Eastern methods of energetic healing, such as Acupuncture and Ayurveda, as well as personal practices, such as Qi Gong and Yoga, as part of this series.

Nature Heals

It is important to realise the profound healing nature of the natural world, as it is a very viable means of improving our health and the quality of our lives.

Nature is truly impartial. It’s just doing it’s thing. It bestows it’s treasures upon all who engage with it, without judgement and malice. It does so because it is just being what it is. We have much to learn from this incredible fact in and of itself.

Just being heals. Just being judgemental or just being malicious harms!

When we are true to our nature we are aligned with the truth which creates all. When we are true to ourselves we are at one with all that is, and our health, (wholeness), is restored. Learn more about this in the article devoted to Universal Law.

As a person harmonises themselves to the activities of Spirit, there may come satisfaction that not only builds contentment but brings beauty, harmony, joy, and a life worthwhile.”

Edgar Cayce Reading 442-1

Unfortunately, when seeking healing through the medical system, or the alternative medical system, or even via spiritual healing modalities etc, this means asking for help from another, or others. Interactions with others, who are often just as broken as we are, but usually in different ways, carries the underlying risk of them doing more harm than good depending on the specific ways they are not yet healed themselves.

The Imperfect Leading The Imperfect

When we seek the help of another to facilitate our own healing we have to work with people who are all filtering their perceptions of us, the world we live in, and everything in it, through their own unique filter. This filter is made up of all of the unresolved issues they possess, which impacts their world view and how they perceive us as individuals.

We only know what we know, and if some of what we know is not in pure accord with Universal Law, then our outlook and practices will be skewed.

This is because we are all on a healing path… trying to realise who we are so that life has meaning for us personally, which ultimately permits us to be more authentically ourselves, and thus able to act with greater levels of integrity… So, this ultimately means none of us are perfect! Our healers included!

Have you ever wondered why practitioners “practice” their healing modalities, rather than deliver them? Practice may lead to perfection, but whilst we remain in the practicing phase we remain imperfect.

So, owing to their imperfection our healers might not practice what they preach, they might not practice what they are taught, they may be just in it for the money, or they may have just gotten out of the wrong side of the bed the morning you decide to consult with them, or they may just make an unintentional mistake… whatever the case, what you may end up paying good money for may be anything but a healing experience!

This is why the term “healer, healer thyself” is so oft repeated the world over.

Nature Epitomises The Art Of Being

Nature, on the other hand, isn’t going to judge you, question your intentions and try and take their bad day out on you. Nature isn’t going to be hungover, emotionally traumatised, or a complete narcissist, or just simply inept at what it’s doing!

Nature has refined the art of just simply being itself, and therein lies the ultimate life lesson. In constantly and simply being just what it is, it is a persistent reminder of the direction we need to head in if we wish to be healed.

Nature As Healer. Nature As Teacher

Nature is our healer, and it is also our teacher.

The Anglo Saxon word health, meaning “being whole”, is thus the outcome of having integrated all aspects of oneself… to have integrity… to be authentically who we are at all times. Being true to who we really are at our core… That’s health.

Nature is a beautiful self healing, self-contained and self-correcting system… if we would allow our conscience and the way things feel to guide us towards a self-correcting way of life, instead of following social norms and conditioning, or ignoring our bodies when we are tired, because we have work to do etc, then we would restore our health in the way nature recovers from imbalances.


there are numerous articles on this website which cite natural occurrences as causing ill-health. These include mould infections, toxic food, parasite infections, as well as toxic environments, so it would be easy to believe that nature is not always such a benign and positive influence on our lives… but this would be a misapprehension.

It is the ways in which humankind has chosen to live which is presenting us with these seemingly nature-caused issues. If we dig a little deeper into these issues we will find that the root cause of each and every problem is a reflection of our own actions.

For example, we are designed to live a lot closer to the earth than we do. Our circadian rhythms require a good amount of daily exposure to the sun’s rays, and this in turn requires that we ground ourselves in the earth… But, for the sake of comfort and safety we live largely indoors in houses constructed of materials which exclude all of these benefits. Plus, in order to earn the money to pay for these unnatural dwellings, we have to go to work, often in other equally unnatural environments, which only serve to further compound the problem.

These properties are built for efficiency and defy the rules of nature, so it is not surprising they become toxic. This is especially true where mould is concerned. In inventing non-native, synthetic forms of EMF, (electromagnetic fields), we have made a super toxin out of mould.

Natural EMFs from the sun are essential for supporting life, but these are the EMFs we have least contact with. Non-native EMF is manmade, in the form of microwave technologies like WiFi and radio waves used for cordless devices, such as home phones and radios etc. It is this manmade EMF which is causing so much harm, and allowing for the unnatural occurrences of harmful moulds etc.

In our natural state we are much more nomadic, which means that issues like parasites and other environmental issues which occur due to our sedentary lifestyles, would not present so much of an issue.

Read Optimal Toxicity On Planet Earth to appreciate other ways humankind are wrecking the planet for ourselves and every other living creature in countless ways. It is because we are so out of accord with nature we have created so many diseases.

Your Wellbeing Is Not Nature’s Job

The natural world is full of healing potential, but of course, this isn’t it’s actual objective. The natural world is very much in the business of being for it’s own sake, but, it just so happens that when we interact with it, it’s wondrous beingness can inspire and transmit some incredible healing benefits to us.

It’s important to realise the natural world has not been created for our benefit. Despite the fact we plunder and ravage the immense treasure chest contained in nature for our own enrichment, and have tried to dominate ‘mother earth’ since the dawn of man, it’s time we truly realise these actions are not just abusive in the extreme, but that we perform these atrocities to our own detriment in every respect. We plunder the earth to ensure we live in the most unnatural way possible.

The natural world is here to support all living things, and just because we are the dominant species does not mean we have the right to buy and sell it, and exploit it at every turn. The way we have misused this beautiful world has brought it to the edge of extinction in practically every way. And now, as a consequence, we face our own extinction.

Perfect In Our Imperfection

You may have though me judgemental when I was mentioning that healing practitioners are not perfect. But, this is not the case. It is simply the truth.

Ultimately, it’s our imperfection which elicits the learning experiences we need to recognise (re-cognise = raise to consciousness again), who we really are.

We invite other imperfect people into our lives to generate specific conditions, and, if we pay attention, these conditions will reveal a gem of clarity where once there was murkiness and lack of insight. We do this so that we may heal ourselves. And your imperfect practitioner is doing precisely the same thing in inviting you into their lives etc, etc…


Nature Is Always Perfect

Humankind may have ravaged nature, and rendered so much of it scared and not functioning at it’s best. But like our own natural immune systems, the earth is innately responding in the most perfect way to what it is being inflicted upon it. It is responding continually in ways in which to right itself.

Because we have harmed and polluted the earth this means that our body’s are continually having to innately respond to the levels of toxicity inflicted upon it… our beautiful, natural immunity is in a continual state of response to the injuries we inflict, just as nature is.

And, here in-lies another truth. We are of nature and so we work in the same way as nature. But, when we are out of accord, and we abuse ourselves and the natural world, sickness prevails in both.

Our world is our mirror.

We Are One With Nature

Our bodies are beautiful self healing systems in precisely the same way nature is a beautiful self healing system. But, because we have lost faith in this, and instead we look to pseudo science to correct what ails us, we compound the problem and grow ever sicker and more toxic with the drugs they give us, in just the same way the world we live in grows sicker with what we do to it.

We have lost respect for the world we live on, and we have lost respect for ourselves. We look to others to heal us instead of taking responsibility for ourselves. We allow others to ransack our beautiful world to enrich themselves at everyone else’s expense… worse still, we go along with it because we consume all of of the non-essential crap that they produce.. And why?

Because we are spiritually undernourished and we have gaping, cavernous voids where our souls used to be. But sadly, no amount of crap from psychopathic producers is ever going to fill that hole. No amount of drugs will deaden the feeling we are hollow inside.

However, we do all of these things for our learning… for our healing… However, the repetition of the same mistakes without ever learning our lessons has led us to a very precipitous place in our history… It’s time to learn the lesson, and change our ways…

There are no short cuts to knowledge, to wisdom, to understanding- these must lived by each and every soul.

Edgar Cayce Reading 830-2

The Same People Who Drug Us Are Drugging Our World!

Finally the courts have ruled that Glyphosate, in the weed killing product RoundUp, from Bayer, (formerly Monsanto), is carcinogenic, and they are paying out millions in compensation to individuals who tragically are affected.

But, RoundUp remains on supermarket shelves and garden centre shelves in every town and city in the UK.

And, RoundUp is routinely used in GMO farming the world over. GMO is still touted to be the solution to the woes of food production around the world by the likes of Bill Gates.

But how can oil-based products be part of a sustainable future?

How can poisoning our planet be the solution to the ills caused through prior misuse of the planet?

And, what’s more, all of the permitted protocols for treating the current prevailing viral infection* use genetically modified materials.

*Sorry for not calling it by it’s name… if I mention it by name and even the name of the treatment protocol being rolled out to ‘treat it’ (I say that reservedly), which is so lucrative new names of people producing it are being added to the billionaire list, this article will likely be censored.

Again, I’m not going to mention names as I don’t want this article to be flagged like others I’ve written… but it’s the same high profile people who are perpetrating the same crimes against nature who are committing the crimes against our human nature.

Just join these dots…

  • We are energetic beings as well as physical beings…
  • Our environments are being drenched in chemicals, heavy metals, and non-native microwaves, and we, as human beings, are being pumped full of chemicals and heavy metals, all predicated on GMO protocols, as well as being exposed to ludicrous levels of non-native microwaves… i.e. synthetic microwaves and dirty electricity, which completely interfere with our natural energetic systems, and those of the earth.

Then realise that Big Tech IS Big Pharma, and bingo! The penny drops!

My Greatest Concern

We need to have free will in order to self-realise… regain the wholeness of who we are… our health. But we are being increasingly controlled… and this, in my estimations, is just the beginning!

We need to be energetically connected to the natural energies of the world or else we won’t have access to the interconnected energy field, the collective unconscious, and the inspirations and insights which are delivered from on high… from our Higher Selves, and from Divine origins.

Sound and light and the unseen elements of our existence, including access to divine inspiration and our personal guides from other realms are all natural elements we need access to more than ever!

If we cannot self-realise, gain enlightenment, or, in other words return to wholeness, we will remain slaves caught within this mortal coil… never able to ascend to different realms of beingness.

The same people are orchestrating all manner of ways which thwart our personal spiritual evolution… and we are complicit, although largely ignorant of the consequences of our actions. We continue to consume all they produce. We all buy the devices they need us to buy to further surveil us and corral us into making perpetual investments in their products, thereby making them egregiously rich and evermore powerful.

They have made the use of their damaging technologies increasingly indispensable.

Just watch how the big corporations are making smartphone verification entirely necessary these days, for example. This is what ‘they’ do… they make their tech increasingly indispensable, so they can exercise more control over us over time… The data they collect informs their marketing and sales strategies… They are collecting our data and using it against us!

You can’t have an electric car without having a smart meter… the ultimate surveillance device… and soon petrol and diesel vehicles will be outlawed owing to corporate pressures from those with a vested interest.

Yes, diesel and petrol cars pollute… but why do we have to hand over all of our privacy in order to enjoy cleaner solutions? When corporations have all of our electric usage data they will be able to profile our entire lifestyles… and if they feel like it, they can individually restrict your usage, either as a non-judicial punishment, or to keep you in line…

This is their aim. And democracy will be dead.

They will fail as long as we push back. But, what will be the cost?

Millions of British people have been protesting in London, but because technology now controls the news, you and I don’t hear about it. We are being utterly blinkered.

Determining Our Own Future

So what can we do?

Firstly, we can start taking more responsibility for our health and for making informed decisions.

Secondly, we can start building community so we can support each other and pass on the real news, as I am trying to do here.

Then, we need to raise our vibration to mitigate the situation… it is imperative to contribute our higher vibration to effect damage limitation.

We need to stop listening to ‘them’ and start listening to our own hearts. We need to tune into the harmonic energies of nature so we can hear the Uni-Verse… the symphony of life… the perpetual orchestration relating the lyrics that are older than time itself, perpetually telling us we are all one, a synergistic organism of infinitesimal parts, individually contributing our wondrousness, our beingness, our uniqueness, in a co-creative capacity to the unending ocean of energy… an almost unimaginably beautiful thrust of creative intensity and immense celebration of all that is.

Ladies and gentlemen, roll up, roll up for the greatest show on earth… It’s all going down now!

First we let the pseudo theologians tell us our nature was unholy and wrong, now we have the Newtonians… (those who see God as a ‘position vacant’) telling us we need chemicals, synthetic materials and genetically modified agents because we still aren’t good enough. And soon they will want to upgrade us and turn us into cyborgs… it’s all out there, hidden in plain site… just research the 4IR!

Enough now!

Dr. Zac Bush is a leading authority on this subject. But, of course, there are many of those. Nevertheless, Zac Bush is who I turn to for insight on these matters, and it gives me great joy to share his insights with you in this article.

Why? Because, I love that, despite being a medical doctor, he is as authentic, compassionate and spiritual a person as I’ve ever witnessed. And his natural humility is a constant reminder that he knows he is one of us!

I hope his videos inspire you as much as they have inspired me.

We Are Loved For Who We Are

What To Expect From This Series :: Healing With Nature

I will be publishing individual articles on specific naturally healing influences.

The first article in the series is :: Healing With Gemstones

Subsequent articles will cover the need for sunlight and grounding, as well as music. In fact, all of our senses have different ways of healing us…

Sight = light and colour

Sound = the way the uni-verse communicates

Smell = aromatic memories and aromatic healing

Taste = food as healer

Touch = connection

Like us, and all other living things, food is energetic as well as being physical. Within the frequencies of food there is information. So, food is information.

In the Ayurvedic tradition they call it Sattvi Food… or food of ‘pure essence’.

I will cover the systems which harness natures energies for healing purposes, like Acupuncture and Ayurveda etc.

And I will also cover the healing power of the elements

  • Water
  • Earth
  • Fire
  • Air
