Interactions like these are impossible to explain unless you already know the simple secrets of the universe. Love connects us to every living thing in the universe and everything in the universe is alive and listening. Today’s true tale of nature communication comes from our friend Reiki Master Cody.

The Baker and the Ants by Cody Reeves
It was a busy day at work like any other for the soul known to me as Jade, so she probably never would have guessed her lunch break would yield such a magical experience as it did.
Working at a busy bakery, as soon as she had a chance to take her lunch break she headed straight for the comfort of a familiar tree’s shade – finally, a chance to feed herself after feeding the slew of hungry customers who had occupied her morning! She sat quietly with a book in hand while enjoying her peanut butter and jam sandwich. As simple as it seemed in comparison to the lavish fare the bakery produced, she ate it in mindfulness. Still beside herself, an ant caught her attention as it roamed around searching for food, and she decided to make this search a little easier, sparing a few crumbs from her sandwich. The ant dutifully reported back to his colony about the miraculous crumbs that descended from the heavens that day, and Jade watched happily as they came to collect them.
Much to her surprise, upon returning to this spot a few weeks later, nature had bloomed for her a manifestation of its deep appreciation.
