02 Jan Tree Spirits
I’ve always held a close connection to trees. You may well remember the year I became obsessed and wrote so many stories (like Grandmother Willow) and concepts – I even wrote an entire coaching program around the acorn and the mighty oak. This was the year, ‘The Hidden Life of Trees‘ fell from the shelf at the bookstore and landed at my feet. The year ‘The Giving Tree‘ was carried everywhere I went.
Last night I went outside and just held a tree – with eyes closed – one hand on the trunk, the other covering my heart. They are vibrant living, ancient creatures that literally hum and buzz with the energy of the earth. The Tree Spirits and Cthaeh and Fairy Trees hold so much magic and vibrant energy. They cleanse our air and gift us with oxygen and breath and nourishment not just for our lungs – but for our souls.
“Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth.” – Hermann Hesse
