Mother Nature Shows-365 Days A Year, 24 Hours A Day

Mother Nature shows have got to be the most ignored shows in town! Unless her forces of nature get really loud, inconvenient, or threaten us in some way, her amazing displays, for the most part, go unnoticed. And yet, when we need restoration or a place for contemplative thought, we run to her.

mother-nature-showsA Variety of Shows From Which To Choose

We’re celebrating Enchanted Key #9-Nature. Consider all of the enchanted possibilities. There are shows of grandeur not only daily but, minute by minute. There are the ever-changing weather patterns. Do you know how many people are addicted to watching The Weather Channel on television? How about the one outside of the window? It’s pretty dramatic. Intense heat waves rise from the pavement, strong winds bend the trees, freezing temperatures solidify the water in the birdbath, and torrential downpours flood the garden. Each event is amazing and different from the previous one.


Mother Nature, working in tandem with Divine Source, creates cloud formations in the sky. They are always changing and always in motion as the palette shifts. Clouds are drawn and then erased. Farmers, who revere Mother Nature, study her patterns. They know that she can be a valuable partner to them, or a source of destruction, when her fury is unfurled.

Stars and Moon

The night sky is a whole separate show, with its stars and the moon. Observing the phases of the moon or searching the night sky for constellations can be a meditative practice. Then there are the changing seasons. The same tree that sprouts bright green leaves in spring, blossoms into flower by summer. In the fall, those leaves change colors and twirl from their branches. In winter, when the limbs are bare, some trees sprout architecturally shaped spheres or pods.

Sunrises, Sunsets

There are sunrises, sunsets, landscapes, rock formations, glaciers, beaches and oceans. The art and glory of nature are there for all of us to enjoy. This is an enchanted heaven on earth. Its beauty nourishes and heals us.
