Accept the fact that nature, this universe, the Creator, and the Earth Mother are all supporting your spirit's evolution.
Sit with your back against a tree---anywhere. It can even be a city park. Just observe everything around you without blinking. Do it first for a short period of time and work up to an hour. My teachers made me stay in stillness for eight hours. If you can sit out in nature without blinking you will see things---like a light around trees. You will start being able to perceive the energy in animals.
