InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

April 22, 2024

The focus for today is:

Today I open up my heart to connect with the land
and the true healthy energy of this amazing Earth.

Today's inspiration was written by Carol Day:

Today I open up my heart to connect with the land and all of the special sites, beings and places on this land. I honour the ancestors of the land here.

I honour all the beings, creatures and manifestations of nature that live here with me. I see the land and all of its places and beings being able to be felt, heard, seen and given audience and inclusion again by humans.

I open up my body to be able to connect with the true healthy energy of this amazing Earth I live as a part of. I set the intention that I can become more and more in alignment with the Calling of the Earth and the true vibrant essence of the whole of this planet.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     Allowing the Visionary Self and Earth Whisperer to Emerge
     Written by Carol Day.

This is Marie T. Russell, co-publisher of, wishing you a day of connecting with Mother Earth (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
While today we celebrate Earth Day, we know in our hearts (and hopefully in our mind as well) that every day is Earth Day. Without this Earth, we would have no place to live, to exist, to be. Planet Earth is our base, our foundation, our solid ground. And Mother Earth is the energy that feeds us, that loves us, and that provides beauty all around. Every day is Earth Day, and every day we can choose to consciously honor, respect, and give thanks for the Love and Abundance that She provides... not just on April 22nd.

Our focus for today: Today I open up my heart to connect with the land and the true healthy energy of this amazing Earth.

Shamanic Dreaming: Connecting with Your Inner Visionary
by Carol Day

book cover of Shamanic Dreaming by Carol DayVisionaries dream the future into life, and throughout the ages shamans have served this role within their communities. Yet, how does one as an individual open to visions and allow the messages we need to hear to come through? Enter the stage of Shamanic Dreaming for a playful, evocative rendezvous with circle consciousness.

In this shamanic guide, visionary Carol Day shows how to access our creative potential to shape a strong vision for ourselves and others, connecting intimately to the world around with the support of seen and unseen realms. Earth whispering practices prepare for shamanic visioning by expanding the senses; we open up to different dimensions and initiate a conscious relationship with nature, myth, and archetype through the creativity wheel.
