It was a rainy night. The night breeze dancing softly throughout the spaces. I stood in front of the bird nest. There was a tiny mother bird in the nest with her two babies. The surrounding was quiet. I stood there for more than five minutes to observe the life of this beautiful creature.
They were quiet. Only sometimes, I could hear the babies were chipping with their soft tiny voices. One of the babies rested her head beside her mother. It was a beautiful scene.
Whenever the breeze reached the nest, it will swing slightly to the left and right, and yet the birds didn’t show any sign of worries or panic. The mother will close her eyes and feel the breeze. She only opened when there was any movement around her. I observed them with my body and feeling but not with my mind.
In silence, peace rose in me. The life of the birds was simple. In the silence and rainy night, they cuddle with love. No complaint. No worries. Only peace.
After I’ve done observing them, I said “Good night housemate. Thank you and I love you” (yes they’ve become the housemate and we are developing some kind of friendship these days). If you wonder why I thanked them; there are few reasons why:
First, they have helped me with my inner peace and joy. They also have helped me on healing by bring up the peace in me. The best part was they helped me strengthen up my senses as an Empath and understand energy through emotions and vibrations of sounds. They simply helped me Meditate. They have become my teachers; tiny in sizes but not in lessons.
If you have problem with the usual meditation, try something like this. I meditate this way quite often. I love what the nature have for us. Sometimes it only took me 5 to 10 minutes. Just observe your nature; birds, your pets like dog or cat, caterpillar, plants or trees. Observe it with your feeling and not with your mind (to avoid judgement and analyze). Observe it in silence as it bring out the peace in you. The peace is already there inside you and these beautiful creatures and nature can help you unleash it to the surface. And this peace can help you on healing especially emotion healing, anger, anxiety and depression.
