The old people share that in the Spring, we have an opportunity to learn the teachings of Respect and Love for the earth.  In this teaching it is important to take only what is necessary, as well as to contribute to the process of renewal–not only of the Earth, but of ourselves. In this way, we will come to understand all that the earth provides us. What do you have to learn by reflecting on your individual journey? How has the earth nourished and supported you?

This is part of a new series of mindfulness prompts that are based in Métis teachings as I know them. They do not represent every teaching, only my interpretation of the teachings I have been gifted.  Each weekly post will be an image specifically designed to fit the lock-screen on your phone. The idea is that you can make mindfulness easy, effective and beautiful all at the same time. Placing each new image on your lock screen will hopefully keep it in the front of your mind and allow you enough time to lean into the learning.
