Now that it's a little (very little) warmer here in the UK, I want to remind you about the power of nature in this blog because, sadly, in our modern world we have forgotten just how potent and life-changing and healing it is to simply be in the natural world.
We are part of this universe and part of this planet. By just putting our bare feet on Mother Earth we 'plug in' to her energy. It rises up within us and rebalances our circadian rhythms - we are 'grounding' or 'earthing' when we do this.
I also believe this energy from Mother Earth does so much more - our body and our energy field is part of the energy of Mother Earth. When we reconnect with this energy, our bodies and minds are reset and healed and we release any stored up negative energy - static electricity, if you will - back into the earth. Mother Earth is endowed with electrons that we absorb through the soles of our feet. This is like taking antioxidants through your feet! It helps you sleep better and reduces the inflammation in the body that contributes to everything from arthritis to heart disease. The arrival of the rubber soled shoe however has meant that people are no longer grounding properly and this is negatively impacting our health - there is a wonderful documentary about this called 'The Science of Grounding' that I will attach below.
I believe so profoundly in the power of getting into nature that I walk in the park every single morning - my angels come with me and we talk about whatever's going on in my life and my work.
I find being outside, especially near water, also makes my meditations so much stronger and my visualisations more powerful. This is in part because the energy of nature is already 'clear'. Of course it's wonderful to meditate anytime, anywhere, but if you meditate in a room in your house, first you are surrounded by four walls and second, you don't know who's left what kind of energy in the room before you got there.
My advice for you this month then is to take advantage of the warmer weather - if you live in the northern hemisphere - and place your hands, feet or bottom on the earth whenever you can, ideally every day for at least 15 minutes. If you can do this daily for a few days, even weeks, see if you notice any improvements in your sleeping or health, especially inflammation-related conditions.
Lots of love, Zoë xx

I can barely contain myself today. I am your typical mother who is bursting with pride for my amazing son, Charles. He's just completed the world's toughest footrace, the Marathon Des Sables.
What is it? If you ask me, it's a week of self-inflicted torture. But officially it's a 250km race over endless sand dunes in the Sahara Desert over six days. It's basically a marathon every day for a week. The runners have to carry all their own food and equipment on their back and water is rationed -- even though temperatures are in the 50s centigrade -- if the water ration is exceeded, the runner is penalised! And at night they sleep in tents made of goat hair. Due to these extreme conditions, their feet swell, crack and bleed under the pressure and the heat.
I know what you're thinking. Why on earth would anyone do this?! Well, for Charles, the motivation was raising money for the London Air Ambulance Team, where he works. As a paramedic, Charles knows more than most about the vital and important work done by this organisation. And there is still time to sponsor them - go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/charles-henderson3
But anyway, how did it go for Charles? Of about 1000 of the world's best athletes, he finished in the top 20 per cent. Thus my heart swelling with pride! Just to finish this race is a huge achievement -- many fall by the wayside due to the gruelling conditions.
Anyway, like I said, I am bursting with pride and also relieved he's safely finished. I also know for sure that he had a team of angels helping him and the rest of the team with whom he completed this mission. It reminds me that our friends in Spirit can offer invaluable help and support at times like this but ultimately we still have work to do here on the earth plane. To use a bicycling analogy, the angels can lubricate the wheels but we still have to do the pedalling!
Still though, the angels tell me that although there is a great deal they can do to smooth your path in life, guide you gently around the obstacles in your way, and ease your burdens, you still have to ask for their help. This bit is essential. This is the way the universe is run. It is a universal law.
So, my advice for you in this blog is to take 10 minutes of quiet time, alone. Turn your phone off, shut the door, etc... and sit down with a pen and paper. Write 'dear Angels' at the top of the page, then tell them anything you want to tell them about the challenges you're facing. Then ask them to take these challenges and find the best solutions, tell them you are giving your challenges to them to sort out. Ask them to guide you to take any action and decisions necessary on the earth plane but that you know that they have many more resources than you as well as a much broader perspective on solutions available. You now hand them the job of overcoming these challenges in the highest and best way.
