Nature, our best therapist

In this Self-Coaching episode, Lauren and I discuss how nature can become our best teacher and healer. So, what can we learn from becoming more observant of nature? For starters, tolerance, acceptance, harmony and a sense of connectedness. Your congested inner life of anticipations, regrets, and incessant rumination begins to recede as you open yourself up to the outer world around you.

Nature doesn’t discriminate, we do! Humans are always living in a binary world of good-bad, positive-negative, right-wrong, and yet, who’s to say unequivocally that vegans are better than vegetarians or democrats are better than republicans?

For you to libertate yourself and be free of self-doubt and insecurity, you must manifest your intrinsic worth and beauty–your “nature.” How? By being who and what you are, without comparisons, without regret. Minding the words of Dr. Suess, “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.
