If we took one moment to look around and learn from Mother Earth about trauma healing, I believe that many would be able to learn more from her than any other.

She has seen and felt more traumas than any person can ever know.  Her strength has shown that she does not shut down to everything, even though the trauma to her from human beings continue.

She holds, she continues.  She oddly does not even clean it.  She teaches that all that happens simply becomes a part of her and she continues each day doing as she does because that is what she is created to do.

We hold more than what the ancestors do.  Why do we do this?

Is there a purpose to this that benefits ourselves or others? 

The lessons of everything around us are there for our survival and growth.  Maybe today we can slow ourselves to heal ourselves and reflect on the teachings of Mother Earth.
