WHAT DOES REWILDING MEAN?

The word rewilding holds many meanings. First of all, it is a lifelong learning process and way of living. It takes time to rediscover oneself and really listen to the wisdom we have within. It requires a willingness to slow down, dive into oneself and open one's heart to all the knowledge that is already here.

Rewilding means to dive in and rediscover the inner power of our nature. It means diving into our core, rediscovering our intuition and senses. Being in contact with our breath, our visions, our bodies, our minds. For example, this can be done by going to the forests. Find a spot where you wont be disturbed and just sit there. Breathe, listen to the sounds, feel your surroundings and just let yourself be in the silence.

Rewilding means focusing on one thing at a time, being mindful and give our full attention to one thing at a time.

Rewilding means to re-discover our potential as human beings, our potential to be loving, caring, creative, inventive and free. Free to just be, and enjoy this very moment.

We all have the ability to be more aware and conscious human beings. The only thing it takes is a dedication and a willingness to take the time to practice in our everyday actions.

Rewilding means rediscovering the ancient wisdom from nature and learning how to bring it to life again in a way that fulfills our souls and our surroundings. Rewilding means asking ourselves what we want to matter in our lives. What is truly important to us and how can we give that our utmost attention, care, appreciation, and love. Ask yourself questions like; Where do I feel peaceful? When do I feel happy and at ease with what surrounds me? How can I bring more of these moments into my life?

Sometimes it can be enough to take an aspect of what your answers will be, and integrate them into your daily routine. For example, taking a small break during your day, closing your eyes and take some deep breathes. This helps you to reconnect with your body and mind, slowing down.

This is the very same journey that I am on and have been my whole life. Having the knowledge that I can truly decide how my life should be and what should be in it, is a very freeing and grounding experience.

Slowing down, appreciating myself and my surroundings, acknowledging that nature holds a lot of wisdom and advocating for that, gives me meaning and passion in my life. At the same time having loving relationships is the most important ingredient in my life. Having people around me that love me and that I love is the core of having a fulfilling life.

We all have the ability to be more aware and conscious human beings. The only thing it takes is a dedication and a willingness to take the time to practice in our everyday actions.

Thank you for reading and remember to breathe.
