Nature Skills - Antinanco Earth Arts

Having the knowledge of nature is truly thyne. In almost any situation being able to know what is and what’s not edible can be very impressive to those who are not knowledgeable in the field.The following will explain why I have always liked skills that can be applied in the wild. Such are shelter building, and finding wild edibles, among other skills. Ever since I’ve watched those movies and t.v. shows about survival it became a small little hobby where I would go on classes or search something up, etc.

Over some time I learned living in the forest requires not only skills like fishing, trapping, hunting, finding water, and making shelter and fire. But it requires peace of mind and determination. I love testing myself and this will be the ultimate test and goal of my life till I complete it. Recently I acquired Lyme Disease and on one of my classes I learned that Japanese Knotweed can help if not cure Lyme disease. I was truly amazed about what nature can do when I looked it up to be sure.

Why knowing about the forest is important. It can be impressive. Showing people who aren’t knowledgeable in the area is a good way you can get a good reputation. People will ask you for help and being needed can also help you get places.It shows that you can survive and/or do well in situations, and are knowledgeable.

This skill can also help you save money you can find edibles in your backyard or local woods; get food for free! Not only that it will improve your diet because you are eating healthy and natural foods. These wild plant can cure ailments, improve looks and skin. For example Japanese Knotweed can help cure Lyme Disease and is also known to have special properties that rejuvenate the skin and slow cell aging processes.

These skills can help you live in dire situations though it’s a very long shot you never know. Being able to find wild edibles can keep you healthy and alive in the wild. Knowing how to hunt a fish is important as having a supply of protein is fundamental for survival. Probably the most important thing for surviving is to be able to create shelter and fire without these you can’t purify water survive cold nights cook food or A shelter can protect you from the sun, insects, wind, rain, snow, hot or cold temperatures and enemy observation. It can give you a feeling of well-being. It can help you maintain your will to survive. In some areas, your need for shelter may take precedence over your need for food and possibly even your need for water. For example, prolonged exposure to cold can cause excessive fatigue and weakness. An exhausted person may develop a “passive” outlook, thereby losing the will to survive.

The most common error in making a shelter is to make it too large. A shelter must be large enough to protect you. It must also be small enough to contain your body heat, especially in cold climates.

As you can see now having nature skills is important because it can help you impress, save money and be healthy, and survive dire situations -By Pavlik Uchitel
