Spiritual reminders on Earth Day and what we can do with them

As the world gears up to celebrate Earth Day on April 22 Gaia Chinniah of Soul 33 explains how we can nurture our sacred connection to Mother Earth and individually make a difference.

The roots of Earth Day trace back to 1970 when a wave of environmental activism swept across the Western world.

Fueled by concerns about pollution, deforestation, and the decline of biodiversity, millions took to the streets demanding change. This collective voice gave birth to Earth Day, officially inaugurated on April 22, 1970, the year of the Dog. The year of the dog also indicates the loyalty that Mother Earth has and provides for us which is being asked by her to return it to her.

Earth Day has grown into a global call for unity. For spiritual individuals, it is an opportunity to reflect on the sacredness of our connection with the Earth. Just as the first Earth Day rallied millions, today’s celebrations engage over a billion people worldwide. This year the month of April symbolises re-evaluation of things that are important to us and helping ourselves become independent, but we need to consider the planet we live on as part of the equation.

In the spiritual realm, Earth Day serves as a reminder that our actions echo in the interconnected web of life. It’s a day to acknowledge the inherent spirituality in nature and recognize our responsibility as stewards of this sacred Earth.

In various ancient cultures, the Earth was revered as a goddess – a nurturing force that provided sustenance and life. Recognising the sacredness of our planet, these civilizations lived in harmony with nature, understanding that the health of the Earth directly influenced their wellbeing.

Fast forward to the present day and the need to care for the Earth remains as vital as ever. The health of our planet is intricately linked to our own wellbeing. As we nurture and heal the Earth, we inadvertently contribute to our own physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.

Spiritual Reminders on Earth Day:

A Reminder of Our Responsibility to the Environment
Earth Day serves as a poignant reminder that we are not separate from the Earth; we are an integral part of its delicate balance. The air we breathe, the water we drink, and the soil that nourishes our food all contribute to our existence. Acknowledging this interconnectedness, we embrace a responsibility to protect and preserve the very source of our life.

A Perfect Moment to Connect with Mother Earth
In the hustle of our daily lives, we may forget the profound connection we share with the Earth. Earth Day offers a perfect opportunity to pause, step outside, and reconnect with the natural world. Whether it’s a barefoot walk on the grass or simply sitting under a tree, these moments of communion rejuvenate our spirits and deepen our bond with Mother Earth.

An Opportunity to Reevaluate the Interconnectedness of Life
Contemplating the interconnectedness of life, Earth Day becomes a time of reflection and re-evaluation. We begin to recognize that every living being, every blade of grass, and every gust of wind, every bird’s cry plays a crucial role in the grand scheme of our existence. This awareness fosters a sense of gratitude and reverence for the intricate web of life.

What Can We Do to Make a Difference?
Take Action
Every action, no matter how small, has the power to make a difference. Participate in local initiatives such as beach cleanups, tree planting events, or community gardens. By actively engaging in the betterment of our environment, we contribute to the collective effort of healing our planet. Recycling appropriately and taking soft plastics to your local depot is a great way to take action and help.

Make Eco-Conscious Choices
Our daily choices shape the world around us. Embrace eco-conscious decisions such as shopping locally, reducing single-use plastics, and supporting sustainable practices. Opt for renewable energy sources, prioritise eco-friendly products, and let your consumer choices reflect your commitment to a healthier Earth.

Practice Forest Bathing and Immerse Yourself in Nature
Nature provides a sanctuary for reflection and rejuvenation. Take time to immerse yourself in the beauty of the outdoors. Practice grounding exercises, hug trees, bathe in a river—these simple yet profound acts help reconnect you with the essence of our shared home.

Root Chakra Meditation
In the realm of spiritual practices, consider incorporating a root chakra meditation. The root chakra, associated with grounding to the Earth, serves as a bridge between our energy and the planet’s vitality. Meditate on your root chakra, allowing its energy to flow freely, healing and balancing your connection with Mother Nature. You want to visualise a red light glowing at the base of your spine, rooting into the Earth surface.
