Trees and Ancient Wisdom

What does the gift of a tree offer us on the etheric level?  We are all empowered to explore that devotion of meditative, transcendental energy.  Trees hold the history and ability to transcend different levels of being.  Their roots teach us of that which exists and anchors us bellow the surface of our own conscious minds.  Their core, the heart and trunk that grows and lives with sap beneath the surface, is so very like our own skin, holding our physical being enclosed and protected as the systems of life occur within our cells.  The branches reach to the light, even as the crown chakra , is every receiving the energy of the manifest universe, the potential to extend up beyond that which we see with physical being, and recharge from Divine Source.  When I began meditating with trees, I was a child.  I would hug close to my heart the ancient being and ‘ask’ to be shown the wisdom of their sentience.  Through the communion of trees, my clairvoyance would expand.  I would see how my rhythms of heart and my energy body would align with the patience of the tree, how the act of being close, and connecting my central nervous system in some manner with the stillness of the rooted being, brought about a deeper sense of calm, of timelessness.  I learned to see that which frustrated or annoyed or was fearful, as so small, in the vastness of season change, the warmth of sun and the exhilaration of wind. When I am in communion in this way, I feel bands of gold light connecting my chakras through my spine, to the centre of the tree.  I become aware of the way my energy body is opening ‘wings’ and gathering wind, sun, light, earth, and water.  With respect, I return to ones that resonate with Peace during times of duress.  Within every living being, is a lesson a teaching and a gift.  What will we develop in ourselves and this world at large through a devotion of time and energy to connecting and learning from other sentient beings? Meditation can be a sinking in, yet over time, it also is an expanding outwards, beyond the confines of physical self, to a deep appreciating for the hearts that beat within us, and the Soul that is so very vast and connected to Light in every direction through multiple dimensions.

On  a recent trip to India, I had the privilege and honour of being present for the planting of shoots, seedlings, from the bodhi tree that Buddha sat beneath during his realization of enlightenment.  The tree, like all living beings who’s life spans recreate themselves through time, carried the energy resonance of that moment, as well as an imprint of the potential shelter or safe haven for spiritual seekers should they choose to seek in a similar way. When I placed my hands at the base of the seedling honoured as the spirit of Truth, the image of three seedlings having the potential to weave together into a gentle dome, that invited in the awakening through heart chakra and crown charka energy, of those who sat within the dome was such that I am encouraged to share my gathered ‘Tree’ perceptions in the following manner:

For those that feel drawn to exploring the healing power of trees spiritually, to learn to explore individual gifts for being rooted into this present life, yet looking through a window of Soul into past lifetimes, and the approaching cycles of light that we may concrete in our future, I offer this simple practice:

Begin the day with gentle movement before stillness, this could be a walk int he sunrise, or gentle yoga, or even sitting and practicing neck rolls, anything that is a natural extension of the ways in which we are each drawn to connect with our physical anchor of self. We acknowledge and honour the body to create a safe harbour for our Spirit.

Breathing fully, visualize oneself as a tree.  The tree may always be the same, or it may change daily.  What flow of energy, feeling, sensation or being do we light heartedly invite?  Do we notice we are weighed down by a ‘load’ of some kind?  Are we reaching outwards with giant branches? Or are we a sapling just beginning?  In the process of developing and refining self awareness, what we each gather from practicing a simple visualization can be very rich.  Having noticed if our tree had creature living around or connected to it, what do we do with our observations?  Do we journal them down, so that further reflection can unfold? Or discuss with a loved one who is open to practising the same gentle exercise?

Sometime through out the day, visit a tree. A prayer that I use is:

“Thank you Divine Source for the bounty of Nature that offers us all so many gifts.  Please allow me to connect in a healing and compassionate way with the wisdom of this forest, and this particular tree, to see, feel and hear that which can be of the greatest service to myself and the world at large, at this time.  Thank you Amen, Oma and Aho.”

It can be that we practice in a forest, or in a meditative state.  What tree holds particular significance for our energy field expansion? To connect with a tree that holds personal Power anywhere on the globe can be done in deep levels of meditation, or it can be physically connecting through a hug, a hand placed against, or leaning with ones spine alongside a local tree.  As sensitivity develops, as we each release the ego or fear based thought patterns that may block our receptive qualities, we may find that the Self connects in new or very ancient ways with the energy source of a tree. If the meditation expansion to an alternate place was chosen, make space to visit a local tree for at least 4mins of communion to anchor the experience. Thank the tree for any wisdom gathered, shared or remembered.

*This is a simple and beautiful practise that can be shared with our children and loved ones. Sometimes we may feel the natural creative manifestation to draw paint or otherwise depict ‘our’ Tree of self.  When we work with e spiritual unfolding, it is a gift we can give ourselves and the world at large to bring forth in a creative fashion, that which we have learned spiritually.

May we be like and connected with the Trees.  May we grow and receive, and grow some more, and leave the seeds of our deepest levels of Compassion, for future generations to grow alongside.

With light and respect for ancient, new or evolving cultures reverence for sacred Trees,

Integration of the Christ Consciousness, Warrior-ship for Peace

One of the most powerful rays of light that we all have access to working with is a stream of energy from the ‘source’ the God/dess of creation that can be called ‘The Christ Consciousness’. This is a level of vibrational energy that attunes us with personal and cosmic levels of wisdom, truth, and strength. The Christ Consciousness energy can easily flow through our crown chakras and help to align our different levels of being, for assistance and strength when living with integrity for fulfillment of our Soul Paths. This energy when it enters our being, can be like a lightening bolt that activates any areas of our body and self that are seeking to become more aligned with our Soul Truth and Purpose.

When our seventh chakra is functioning in a optimal manner, our reception of universal energy, the light based vibrations of the universe, flow freely and with clarity into the different layers of our being. This is like a stream of light that infuses our aura, our energetic being, clears our mind to impart wisdom, intuitive flashes and clarity on the mental level, allows for the truest intention of emotional experience and reception of Divine Love on the emotional level, and allows for a healthy, energized body on the physical level. For some, this activation can be gentle, while at other times this ‘clearing’ of stagnant energy and making way for new vital life force, can manifest with certain physical responses that are not as comfortable. For example, as the chakras in the body, the energy nodes that correspond with the master glands as well as spiritual and emotional centers, clear, the physical body can undergo significant changes.

When I am receiving energy from the Christ Consciousness through my crown chakra, and stagnant energy is being removed, I have often experiences headaches or nasal congestion. When I give myself permission to claim time and space to receive light, and anchor it through my consciousness, I am better able to release the ‘tension; in my head, and to ‘see’ with clarity the changes that are needed in my physical, emotional mental and spiritual reality to be a more balanced Self. As a highly clairvoyant individual, there are times when I ‘block’ what I can see simply for the convenience of focusing on other aspects of life. When I need to clear out the pathways of personal reception, I will often get a massive beam of light at my crown chakra, that releases the images I have been avoiding seeing.

For people who are sensitive to energy in other ways, such as through clairsentience, the ability to ‘feel’ their personal truth and perceive the truth of the world around them, reactivation of their connection with the Christ Consciousness can clear out stagnant energy at their heart centers and stomachs. This can manifest as chest colds and upset stomachs as the body is forced to slow down, and process feelings on several levels. I have noticed that several people in the last two weeks are activating an alignment with the Christ Consciousness, and harnessing this infusion of light in different ways. The light as it pertains to our individual Soul Paths, asks us to each step forward after such integration with sharing of our personal strength and knowledge to assist and encourage others. Some people may find that they are feeling drawn to a shift in lifestyle job, and manner of expressing themselves in respectful relationship. The Christ Consciousness is sending waves of light o any who are open to making these shifts to wards a more personally empowered, truthful, gentle, and strong way of being.

To identify where the Christ Consciousness energy is seeking to heal and empower the self, I offer this practice:

*Find a comfortable place to sit or lay. Place the hands, with fingers interlaced, over the navel. Taking gentle breaths, visualize a light blue light entering the crown of the head, and flowing down to the tips of the toes. Continue to focus on this light, entering the head, and flowing down through the toes, and notice if any areas of the body, seek to have the light suffuse them with greater attention. If so, note the area of the body and ask the self with words or intentions such as:

“God/dess and Christ Consciousness please empower my higher self to clearly indicate wheat I can do to facilitate the greatest healing and alignment on all my levels of being at this time. I am open to receiving angelic and love based assistance in all ways. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”

For each of our own alignment, we can receive messages about what is most helpful and healing at this time. Some of us may be drawn to fresh air and outdoor time, others to journalling ideas, others to images of plants and flowers that are helpful to us both visually or as teas/ and foods. Some of us may need to release emotions through tears or through communications with loved ones that we have been avoiding. If these communications are with a departed loved one, consider writing a letter, and planting it with seeds outside or burning it, to release the sentiment into the world. The Christ Consciousness aids us in having courage clarity and truth as we commit to a path of personal empowerment, as Warriors of Peace. Peace can be on a personal level of alignment as well as through our commitment to being advocates of peacefulness on a grander scale.

Examples I am seeing are the divine masculine asking for men who have words of wisdom and strength to step forward as leaders who speak form the heart, both within their families, circles of friends, and communities. Some will be asked to work with children, as leaders in non-violence, respect and compassion. Others will be encouraged to starts men’s groups that create collaborative support systems for healing from their pasts, others still will be become teachers of gentle self awareness modalities such as yoga, meditation, and mentors in nature, either through guiding outdoor experiences or spearheading gardening communities. Women can also be carriers of the Christ Consciousness in powerful ways, and this manifestation at this time will be evident as women claim their personal voices towards a future for the planet through connections with one another globally and individually at this time. Many women Leaders are coming into their power significantly with the assistance and support of the Christ Consciousness.

In whatever manner we all each synthesizing this powerful light, may it be for the greatest healing both individually and universally.

Boundaries and Personal Power

Image

Boundaries are healthy intentions to create and keep a sacred space around the ‘self’ and energy field.  Like a plant in the warmth of the sun, the more we invest and strengthen our ‘boundaries’, the stronger and healthier they become.  Having a ‘boundary’ that allows you to acknowledge what is healthy and supportive of your life purpose, daily interactions, and evolving relationships is challenging, yet attainable.

To create and explore your own unique sacred space, I offer you this visualization:

Retreat to a place that feels ‘safe’, this could be outside, or inside, but is best practiced alone, or at least alone within a twelve foot radius.  Interlace your fingers and place them over your solar plexus and begin to relax into deeper breathing.

When your lungs and body feel as though they are saturated in oxygen, choose a vibrant color that resonates with you.  This color should be bright, and make you feel safe, healthy and vital when you see, or wear it.

Imagine that you have picked up a giant paintbrush, and draw a circle around yourself.  This circle touches the ground, leaving space between you and the surrounding world.  The line the paintbrush leaves is thick and strong.  If you need to draw the circle more than once to feel that it is solid, do so.

Once drawn, take a moment to set an intention/ or prayer, something like this: “I ask that my higher self, my guides, my guardian angels and the ascended masters, God(dess), and earth helpers help to clear my energy field from any negativity and fear that I no longer wish to carry.  In this circle of light, I reconnect with my Being, life purpose, and immense Divine Love.”

By enclosing yourself in a circle of light, you have not stopped loving, or being connected with those in your life you love.  You have instead created a stronger inner ability to experience love and center yourself.

Perhaps as your day progresses you will feel this circle shrink.  It might begin to fit your body like a shield of armor, or it may be challenged as you interact with those who are used to trespassing on your boundaries. If you tune into your inner knowing throughout the day, even for a few moment, do a visual scan of what is happening with your circle of light after such interactions, and if necessary, draw the circle with your giant mental paintbrush once more.

Ideally this ‘boundary drawing’ will become routine.  The colors may change with the season’s , your spiritual journey, or your mood and life experiences.  When the colors are vibrant, they are feeding you and protecting your simultaneously.  Some of the angelic hues are:

Archangel Michael works primarily with vibrant blue and purple for safety, and protection.

Archangel Jophiel has hues of pink that lead to seeing the beauty within the self and the world.

Archangel Raphael is a predominantly green hues, bringing healing on all levels to those that work with him.

We all possess the ability to be energetically sensitive and aware.  We all deserve to be nourished internally before sharing our gifts with the world around us.  Healthy boundaries lead to healthy relationships in all aspects of ones life. May you have excellent Health!

With blessings and light
