I had an awesome spiritual experience the other day. It wasn’t as momentous as the beautiful spring morning when Joseph Smith went to a grove to pray and saw a glorious light come down from heaven, in which he saw God, the Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ as two separate, bright, immortal, exalted beings.
Here is my experience; Friday, at 6:30 p.m., I was sitting in a comfortable chair in my front room. The sun was shining through the leaves of the tree in our front yard. It was fun to see flickering sunshine shining moving rays of sunshine all over me. I was really enjoying the moment.
There were flickering miniature spotlights all over me. The breeze was blowing slightly through the leaves also to make all the little spotlights flicker and shimmer. I felt immensely happy for the moment and following hour.
I thought of how a moment in nature can be so healing and rejuvenating. It’s amazing how simple little events and happenings in the world around us can bring so much happiness in the smallest ways. I imagined that no matter how hard life gets, you can always notice the small things and find healing nourishment for the soul.
It seems like there will always be something amazing to observe that will feed your soul and lift your spirits. You can feel the light within and be rejuvenated.
Then, I got a facebook message with a photo from my brother-in-law in Japan, who also had an amazing moment in nature and took this picture.
He said, “The Scenery of Japanese fall. I love sky and clouds. It’s nature healing for me!!”
It doesn’t matter what country you are from. You can know within that the beauties of nature are healing.
They bring joy, light, and energy to your soul. It is some type of spiritual nourishment that also boosts your immune system.
