As we begin to learn more about the many elements of nature and different aspects of ourselves, we have an opportunity to deepen our alignment with Grandmother Earth.

South: Sunrise
The earth is in a phase of exhalation, breathing out.
This is the act of “catching of the spirit.”
Grandmother Earth is exhaling and being in the water and fluidity of self.

East: Midday
Here is the time of recuperation for Grandmother Earth.
Everything shifts and it is a “resting of the spirit.”
It is the time of day when the plant growth slows down, for they rest within the heat of the day.

North: Sunset
This is when Grandmother Earth begins her inhale.
You will oftentimes notice that the wind will blow stronger.
This is known as “seating the spirit.”

West: Midnight
This is when Grandmother Earth rejuvenates. She is healing herself.
It is in the moonlight that plants make their greatest amount of growth.
It is called the “calming of the spirit.”

“The sun teaches to all things that grow their longing for light,
But it is night that raises them to the stars.”  ~Kahlil Gibran
