Winter, a Time to Stretch Your Spirit

Chris and Dave Wattenberg

We have been provided with many wonders in nature. Look around and find one that appeals to you. Give it your blessing. Try some of the following:

  1. Look up in the sky - are there any clouds? Is there peacefulness to the sky? What feelings are you receiving? Use your imagination - what do you see in the clouds?

  2. Listen to the sounds around you and the silence between sounds.

  3. Listen to the concert of the birds singing. Tune your heart to the rhythm of nature. As you absorb the sound see how much more beautiful the wonders around you become.

  4. Let the breeze soothe you. Let your spirit soar with the wind, and enter your soul. Find a personal melody in the vibration of the air.

  5. Look at the tree branches, use your imagination,.there are many patterns. See how many letters you can find. Imagine one of the trees is the tree of Knowledge. Touch it. Open your mind to receive the special message it has just for you.

  6. Close your eyes and inhale the fresh air. Exhale the worries of yesterday. Smell the aroma. Try to connect the fragrances with your surroundings. Now open your eyes and see how the aroma has improved the sights.

  7. In this snowy season see the clean, pretty, peaceful surroundings. Absorb the peacefulness that is around you. Are there any animal tracks? What do you think that animal is going through? Perhaps they are there now, watch their movements. See how nature is expressed uniquely in each creature.

  8. Look at the beauty in a snowflake. Look carefully at its pattern. Thank our creator for its beauty.

  9. Did Jack Frost leave a picture on your window or picnic table?

  10. What do you see in the painting?

  11. Winter is a time of hibernation, a good time to mediate. Relax, breathe in slowly and stretch your arms and your mind. Reach slowly for the tops of the trees. Breathe out as you lower your arms. Feel the peacefulness of the surroundings. Close your eyes and enjoy the peace within yourself.
