Nature as our coach

If nature is your coach she doesn't have words only landscapes to communicate to you with.  Landscapes that, if you use them as metaphors for your life, have insight, solutions, suggestions, truth and wisdom contained within them.

Today as I reflected on the above insight I invited the landscape I was in to be my coach, which resulted in this video:

Coaching Question from Nature: How can you blow away the clouds or even rise above them so you can appreciate and accept your essence and light in the world?

These videos and all the vlogs in the Landscaping Your Life YouTube playlist offer such coaching from Nature.

One from last week also resonated with many people over on Instagram:

Coaching Question from Nature: How can you ensure you connect with all that you have in common, rather than what divides and separates you from others?

If you can't see the wood for the trees, are stuck in a rut, up a creek without a paddle, are treading water, or out on a limb, or perhaps feel like a fish out of water the recently published Can't see the wood for the trees offers coaching advice from the very landscapes contained within these sayings.

Which means if you're stuck in a rut - the rut will have the answer, if you can't see the wood for the trees it suggests the wood will have much to say - after all as David Wagoner in his poem Lost suggests "The wood and the trees ... are not lost .... you must let it find you."
