Your Friendly Hise Hikers Tuesday Tip: Be Open To Receive.
On our first backpacking trip in 2015, I set an intention before we left on the first day of being open to receive.
What exactly did that mean?
This backpacking trip was my full immersion in receiving the healing power that nature provides.
We spent 3 days on the trail and hiked about 45 miles.
Upon our return from this trek, I was sitting in our dining room and was overcome with a tremendous feeling of peace and calm in my heart for all of the grief and loss that I had endured.
The only thing I could say contributed to these feelings was the time we had just spent on the trail and in nature.
I set that intention every time we get out in nature – whether it’s for a day hike or a day on the lake or a multi-day backpacking adventure… and I am always open to receiving whatever I am meant to receive.
