We had an ice and snow storm this week. It cut our electricity and took out the Internet too. We're so protected in our homes that we're not always aware of what is going on outside in nature.
We live on land with lots of trees. The pine trees look beautiful with the ice all over them, the heavy snow pulls their branches down to the ground. The problem is the weight of water is so heavy it can snap their branches.
Everything has energy, everything is alive and everything has a consciousness to a degree. We just have different levels of consciousness. So you're probably not going to have a conversation about the stock market with a tree, but you can feel its stories, its wisdom and its love. Trees hold the history of the area. They connect with the other trees and plants, birds and insects, rocks and soil.
Many of our trees lost their branches this week. One pine lost its top. Yesterday I went to talk to it and offer love and healing. As I touched the fallen branches I noticed the consciousness of the main tree was missing. I sensed the remainder of the tree - the part that was still standing - was in shock.
Some people will think this sounds a little strange, but if you're an intuitive, empath, clairsentient, or healer, you'll understand exactly what I'm talking about.
If you ever need to cut a tree down, talk to it first. Honor its presence in your life, it's part of your consciousness. Trees give us oxygen, they even look like lungs. They are a major part of our existence and without them we would not be able to sustain life on our planet. Did you realize that?
Have you noticed that sometimes when you look at a tree there seems to be a face in it? Maybe a group of leaves reveal an image of a person. Or you just feel like there's a presence, you can feel its energy within your own being.
Don't believe what you read in books or what I tell you. Experiencing the consciousness of a tree is very personal. When I'm in my office I look out onto a patch with a group of trees that constantly reveal their spirits to me. Their presence messmerizes me and I can find myself between worlds, a bit like daydreaming except there's an out of body experience on top of it. I have to consciously pull myself away.
So this week, try communicating with a tree. Treat the tree like you would a person you're meeting for the first time. Talk with your heart and mind and not necessarily with your voice. Ask it if you can connect and once you get the OK ask to sit with the tree. Close your eyes and feel its energy, communicate with it, ask it who it is, ask it to share its stories with you, or simply just be with the tree. You can share healing energy, share your love. When you leave the conversation make an intention to "disconnect." And of course always thank the tree for being with you.
