Aboriginal Teachings – Summer – how you tell it’s going to be a hot one.

In Australia the Original Peoples of some parts of New South Wales – where I live they are the Guringai People – share a teaching that you can tell if it’s going to be a hot summer – a bush fire prone hot summer by the colour of the rocks the ants move onto their mounds and when the ants move them on.

Generally the ants put block or white rocks on the mounds – typically black in winter, to absorb the sun and warm the nest, and white, in summer to reflect the heat.
The earlier the ants put the white rocks on and the more white rocks that go on – the hotter the upcoming summer.

I have listened as Grandmother Parisha, A Cherokee Elder, has shared stories about Nature.

I love the Grandmother Pa’Ris’Ha quote “Be in Nature, stay in harmony with Nature, it is you…Learn of Nature, then understand yourself!”We can learn so much from Nature.
Sydney is pretty hot now but cooled with evening light rains and brief but strong cooling winds. I Love It.

The Trees are shedding bark and my husband and I and our Daughter have been clearing out where we live – like the trees shedding what is no longer necessary.
Our son was just happy to play, play, play – I’ve put a pile of things in a box for him to sort over the next few days (before the new moon on the 4th)

Wishing you all the Best this Holiday Season may you have great times in and with Nature.

All the Best

      Hi Trini, You’re welcome I’ll post more of it. I used to be nervous about what can be shared but now I know all the connecting to Country and noticing what Nature is doing is there to be shared. I’ll get pics too. Can you email me your blog site?
      I’m on Pittwater Environmental Foundation now – and want to do blogging etc to get a bigger following (donators, supports, those knowing about PEF). I’ll wait till the paper-work is done at ASIC. Any suggestions most welcome. Especially in the IT area.
