An Invitation.

“Down through the centuries, man has attempted to outwit the forces of nature. Now, it falls to them to be the custodians of those same forces. It is no longer enough to live on the world; now it is necessary to live in it.

The time has come for all men (we include women here but it is more expedient to use one term only) to unite against the destructive beliefs of those who seek to destroy the natural world. It is time to unite against the forces of humankind who would seek to eliminate the wealth of the natural world in order to line their own pockets.

But how can we accomplish such a task, we hear you ask?

From your perspective, it appears to be an insurmountable task, but from ours, it is relatively simple. Those of you who work with the natural forces, i.e., the trees; the elemental spirits, the Ancient Ones, the dragons, etc., already have it within your means to help stem the tide of destruction.

All you have to do, and we will assist all those willing to give of their time and skills, is to focus daily on the energies that surround you, your gardens, your parks, your woodlands. Focus on your own area, then contact, mentally, the elementals of that area. Commune with them. Concentrate on their essence, see their forms, and hear their songs.

Once you have accomplished this, create centres of learning so that others can go there and learn to commune with them. Create your own Nature Elemental Universities, where students can visit when they feel called, to connect with the Elemental energies that wish to work with them.

There is still time to change the tides, but you must not tarry.”

I received this a couple of weeks ago and wondered how to connect with the Elementals as they suggested. It usually takes me a few weeks to process what they have given me but then I remembered something that happened at my friend’s house a few months ago. She lives just a few miles outside Winchester, surrounded by fields, ancient trackways and woodland. Having a cup of tea, and looking out her window at apple trees, roses, and the pheasant who comes for feeding daily, I saw images of a thin, gaunt giant striding slowly across the landscape in the field opposite her house. He was the Elemental energy of the area, the one who took care of what used to be the old estate. He is the one who maintains the balance and looks after all the other energies who live there, both seen and unseen. I hadn’t called him, but he came of his own volition, inviting my friend to connect with him.

Estate Elemental.

He was not what I expected from an Elemental, but his energy was calm, slow and peaceful. He exuded love and care which was a joy to feel. My friend saw a different image of him, one that had meaning to her. (We all see the Elementals according to our beliefs so however they appear to you is the right way for you).

I remember too, at another friend’s house in Dorset, seeing another Elemental. At the time I didn’t quite understand what he was doing as he was peering at me, rather grumpily I thought, through a triangular portal I had anchored there. He looked like a Sulamith Wulfing illustration. (She could see the elementals clearly). I knew the triangle allowed communication between humans and the Elementals but didn’t quite realise why they were created there. The channelling above explains why.

Elemental by Sulamith Wulfing

A few weeks back, I created a triangle portal on the site of an old Roman villa, in Sparsholt. When I opened the portal, I didn’t understand why they placed it there. The roman villa was not a sacred place, I thought. But my thinking was limited. I was only seeing what used to be there, not what is there now. I was thinking of the past, not the present.

When anchoring the triangle at that place, I did not know its purpose, but on a return trip, after receiving this channelling, we went back up, passing the bronze age burial mound on the way, to connect with the elemental energy there. As soon as we entered the woods, the wind started rising, moving through the branches of the beech trees. We walked around the edge of the woods, listening to the wind rise and fall. I had the impression that the elemental communicated like that, through wind in the trees and I remembered a similar experience many years ago after trying and failing to find the villa site.

Hopelessly lost, after half a day of searching the woods, I gave in and asked the energies of the woods to please help me. Almost as soon as I uttered the words, a wind moved through the trees on my left as if they were saying, ‘follow me’. So, I followed what seemed like a wave of wind as it moved the tree branches. I followed this wave of softly moving branches, walking in a straight line through brambles and undergrowth, until five minutes later, I found myself in a square clearing. A feeling settled in my stomach as I heard the energies, through the wind and trees, say ‘Welcome.’ The voice was low and airy and I was both amazed, and overjoyed at having finally found the place. I was also fascinated by how the energies there communicated with me and how they had helped me locate what I had spent ten years trying to find.

That was my first experience. I didn’t know it at the time but I had connected with the elemental guardian there but on this last visit I understood more. Because I knew it was there. Placing the triangle of energy told me that. After walking the old paths, we came to the site of the villa and the winds stopped, completely. There was a stark difference between this clear space and the surrounding trees. Outside the space, the wind moved strongly, rustling the branches, but inside the space, there was no movement, at all. It was completely still, peaceful, like the eye of a storm.

Sitting on the wooden bench, I mentally called to the elemental telling him(?) of my intention and I waited. I noticed a wind come up again, to my left, and saw a man taller than the trees, striding through them, moving the branches aside as if they were tall grass. To my mind, he looked like the BFG. Gentle and caring. But he did not enter the villa site. He moved in the trees surrounding it. I was curious about this so as we walked back I asked him how we could help, based on what the channelling had suggested. I also wanted to know more about him.

This is his area. It even looks like an elemental.

I heard, as words in my head, ‘This is my kingdom.’ And he showed me the entire woodland and a red line drawn around the boundaries. As the elemental ‘King’ he strode around these boundaries, holding within them his trees, as though he was a tree-shepherd. This sounded familiar and I remembered Tolkien talking about Tree-shepherds. But Tolkien’s shepherds were trees. This elemental was not. He was distinct from them. A being in his own right. Trees are rooted. They cannot move. But he can, and does, caring for and protecting everything within his red line. Looking at the map of over 130 years, I can see that he has done a pretty good job as the woods are still there and have been added to, not diminished.  

Farley Mount 1894-1910

We passed an old beech tree that had been planted as a boundary tree to separate arable land from woodland. I looked up into its branches and was reminded of Enid Blyton’s The Magic Faraway Tree with its ‘lands’ at the top that changed all the time so you never knew what land was going to be there next time you climbed it. This reminded me of what my guides had said about how to access inspiration, by moving along the branch of a tree and connecting with the story/poem/painting there; an interdimensional tree.

That, it seemed, was the answer. Write stories. Let the stories be about them. At least for me. For you it might be different, based on your life’s work.

During the previous week, while anchoring a red dragon line on the south coast which will eventually stretch from Worthing to Portland Bill, I opened a triangle portal at Littlehampton. Once it was open, I contacted the most beautiful sea elemental I have ever connected to. The triangle goes from Littlehampton to Arundel, making it a water portal as it follows the river, Arun. I had never opened a water portal before, not like this anyway.

And I have also never experienced such loving elemental energy. I wanted to stay in this place forever. Usually, when I do energy work, once I have completed the work, I have no more desire to be there, but this place was different. I didn’t want to leave! The elemental appeared as a large brown boulder covered with barnacles and mussels, like a rock you would see beside the sea when the tide has gone out. It looked bulbous, rounded and swollen, with a wide, round nose and large, large lips that stretched around its face, like a cleft in the rock. Its eyes were closed and its face turned towards the surface, absorbing the sunlight that filtered through the water. He didn’t move around, this elemental, but remained in this place doing his job as elemental balancer. But he did give me a gift that would allow me to share his energy as an attunement.

I am not a beachy person; I don’t enjoy lying on a beach all day but prefer to be walking, picking up fossils and stones and feathers and taking photos. But I could quite happily have stayed on this beach, within his loving, nurturing energy.

Putting all these things together, I assume that triangle portals open up places to be used as Elemental Universities. Visiting these places and having the intention to learn from these elementals will teach you what they want you to learn.  

Perhaps too, a human will be a guardian of a particular portal. Someone who feels drawn to being there. Each place has one. Someone who can communicate with the Elemental guardians and help keep the balance, and can share the knowledge of these wonderful guardians, passing on their teachings through the written word, music or art.

For now, I will share the places where portals exist, which is also the reason for this post, so you can go yourself and connect to them and see what they want you to do.

There is still time, as they say. But do not tarry…

If you wish to work with the Elementals in this way, you can receive the Elemental Portal Attunement. which will attune you to their energies and which will allow you to install the portals where you are guided to.

Vibrational Essence Sprays. Nature.

These are just a few of the essences available, more will be added soon.

Postage and packaging included with the UK.

Shamanic Wisdom

Shamanic Wisdom: This essence was gifted to me by the trees in Micheldever woods, in Hampshire, on a 2.500 yr old settlement site of the Iron Age. It is an aid to Journeying, to finding your animal helpers, or Power animals and in finding your personal Tree-Teacher. Trees and animals are our brothers; our sisters. They are our animal-nature teachers. Using this essence opens a portal to their consciousness, allowing a two-way flow of communication between us and them. It puts us on the same vibrational level, making their wisdom accessible, as though we are speaking directly to them. Spraying this essence over your head, every time you venture into the woods or forest, or while Journeying, either in Nature’s realms, or as an energetic Journeying, will change your vibration so that you match the trees and animals around you. You will be on the same wavelength and therefore will be energetically aligned with them, making communication easier.

pine-essence

Essence of Pine

2. This essence was a gift from an ancient Pine tree, that was planted in a church in Northam estate by Capability Lancelot Brown. To the trees he was ‘kin’, because he not only understood them as Beings but also worked with the Spirit of Place. He listened to the trees and planted accordingly. The essence is for those who wish to work specifically with trees on a physical level: planting them, caring for them and/or working energetically with them. It helps us to listen to them and to see them as Beings in their own right. It also connects us to Pine trees all over the world.

£10.99

The Essence of Birds

This essence was created at an Iron Age Hillfort in Dinton, Wiltshire. It was energised by an ancient Sweet Chestnut tree whose roots were anchored in centuries of history. The tree had many trunks emerging from one main trunk and as I watched the energies enter the bottle in the center of these arms, I saw the energy of raven settling in the water. I was told that the essence would help call the user of the essence to their Right Path. Through vision and knowing their feet would find the path they needed to be on, eliminating other unnecessary detours on the way. In the immortal words of led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven: ‘Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run, there’s still time to change the road you’re on.’

£10.99

The Essence of the Elementals

This was created at the top of Aire Falls, in the Lake District. This is a very light, faery-like essence which brings sparkles, joy and excitement. The feeling of joy as water falls over rocks, as it cascades freely down the hillside, creating tiny rainbows in the mist is what these elementals want you to experience. The pure joy of creation, and the participation in the excitement of Nature’s energy is freely gifted by the nature spirits of the waterfall, so that you too can share in their joy.

£10.99

As I organise the many bottles of essence I now have, I will continue to post them. These essences can also be put into soaps, so if there is an essence, or two, that you would like in a soap, just message me and I will make it for you.

Itchen Woods. Hampshire.

This month of May has seen a shift in our work in Earth Healing.  Prior to this, the focus has been on accessing the Feminine Wisdom of ancient sites, but recently we have been able to access the Masculine Energy and information. This is exciting, as it heralds a whole new level of our understanding into the Male-centred fertility mysteries, as known by our ancestors in these lands.

Cowslips on the South Downs Way.

We have been given snippets before now, but over the past few weeks, since a walk along the South Downs Way, this fresh information has started to come through.  While doing that walk, to get out of the house, we started at Chilcomb village/hamlet and followed our impulses. As we ambled along, taking photos, we walked through a very icy-feeling area and in front of us appeared a huge, Celtic-looking man. He was tall and broad and wearing only leggings tied around with leather thongs. His very muscular arms and chest were naked, but he had a leather band tied around his left upper arm. His skin was red with the cold, but he seemed not to notice.

We stopped walking to communicate with him, and he handed me a faceted Ruby egg. Next, he gave Chris a golden sickle, like the ones portrayed in druid images with mistletoe. We continued walking after receiving our gifts, unsure why we randomly received them along an ancient trackway until we came to the tumulus on the top of the rise.  That explained the man! I was instructed to activate the burial-mound and then take a blue energy from it to two more barrows that I remembered working on fifteen years ago near Cheesefoot Head. The barrows were also on the ancient trackway and sit on a blue energy-line. The track seems to follow some of that line.

Crabapple tree inside Danebury Ring.

Since that day, all the energy-work we have done has been mainly done by Chris. His receiving the Golden Sickle was an initiation into the Male Sacred Mysteries. He has been learning the Feminine Mysteries for the past sixteen years and now it would seem he has reached a point where he can balance that learning with the Masculine Mysteries.

Last week we went to Danebury Hillfort and this week, we went to Itchen woods, where Chris received interesting information about the place. We are being instructed to revisit places we have worked on before. The following video is part of the information we received about the Itchen Woods Banjo enclosure.

The second part of audio:

When Chris mentions ‘Merlin’ he is referring to the collective energy of the Merlins, the male priests of the Old traditions, not to the fictional character who is an embodiment of the priesthood and masculine fertility energy.

The Lemurians…Clarified.

2 October 2016.

 

0b29b2efc76c1a8219b48cb0caf8c0cc“Earlier, you guessed at our identities, and it served you at the time, and it served us too, but now you seek the truth of who we are, and rightly so.

We are not so old as to be forgotten, but not so young as you might imagine. Although ‘Lemuria’, as your present time defines it, did not exist in ‘reality’, our civilisation did exist within the time frame of that believed to be Lemurian.  We are an ancient race, older than the hills, literally, as your mountain ranges were beneath our seas and were our seabed.

We made up many races and many lifeforms, just as you do today, and some of us were wise and others not so wise, just as you also are today. But the wisdom we garnered, over many years of development, is what we share with you now.

There was not one name that applied to our races, for we were many, just as there is not one name for your human civilisation. Perhaps you will enter the collective psychic atmosphere and be known as “The Humans” to future races on earth, but that is not your ‘name’. You see how difficult it is?

We were a race of cultures, trying to develop qualities, in much the same way as your human race is doing. We were successful enough. The Abramic culture was a bleed-through from unresolved issues that we left behind us, and this is why we take this opportunity to help you with these challenges. We take a measure of responsibility for these beliefs and so we choose to resolve this issue by helping those souls to overcome the negative beliefs that we ourselves planted, albeit unwittingly!

Time will tell whether we can do this satisfactorily, for mankind has taken a different route to the one we took, and it is more difficult to break-through when such energy is being forced outwards. Your race is yet young and you have come so far but now it is time for change. It is time for mankind to change direction and so we help you to steer in that new direction.

You can continue to call us Lemurian, as that name helps you to identify our energy. But you know the truth, and we are glad that you asked for it. It is always better to face the truth, than to live a lie and so we say to you, never settle for something unless you feel it in your bones. Untruths can be scattered to the four winds, but the truth will always endure because it is the truth.

Symbol to hold in your mind if you wish to connect to ‘Lemurian’ consciousness.

We are ‘rooted’ like a great tree, and although it may lose its leaves, and it may wither and die, the memory of it remains. And so it is with us. We remain in the Aethers, and you can tap into our memories at certain places where those energies remain. If you would like a symbol to connect to us then use this: a simple white feather in a sea of green and gold, will suffice. That is our energy signature and if you wish to connect with us, use this energy and we will enable communications.

Thank you and we wish you well in your endeavours.”

This information came about because of my own unease with the name lemurians, even though I had received both teachings and information from this ancient civilisation. But I have a need for the ‘real’ in my work, even though to others everything I do might not seem ‘real’.

When I first began to channel, or ‘listen’ I told the energies communicating with me not to give me any airy-fairy flowery language. I wanted the info to be clear and un-New Agey! I wanted it to be practical and usable, not wonderful sounding fantasies that got people no-where except more stuck in their heads!

I hadn’t really given the Lemurians much thought for many years, but as I was going through old, received information I posted some of it here. However, I still felt uneasy about the name, so I looked up where the name came from. It was a biologist named Philip Sclater who first began to use the name. So I asked the Elders who the Lemurians really were! And this was their answer.

great_tree_by_hazzard65-d5968avHaving studied Archaeology I knew that our ‘present’ spiritual belief about lost continents was not true. Studying archaeology really helped me to separate fact from fiction in my energy work. And receiving the info I needed from the horse’s mouth helps me to understand the truth of these ancient civilisations, even though archaeology does not hold with theories of previous civilisations on earth. But the earth does not lie and geology is geology, so I can accept the fact of the Lemurians knowing that they existed, just not necessarily in the way we think.

So I am grateful to them for clarifying this for me.

Communicating with Trees.

treemanCommunicating with Trees is very simple. You just sit, or stand, with your back against the tree trunk and you intend that your energy-field blends with the energy-field of the tree. You imagine that both your ‘fields’ are One. Then you wait! If you are with a Dryad, and this will be pretty clear already because you will feel something different about the tree, then you just keep your inner senses open and watch to see what happens. The tree might need your help, to clear it or to change its field, or something entirely unexpected. Or it might share with you, its energy. It might send impressions into your mind telling you what it needs. You just have to be open to whatever  you receive.

It does take some trust, and sensitivity to energy communication, but once you have done it you will always recognise the energy. Sometimes, even just passing a Dryad, it will make it’s presence felt. As you walk through its huge energy-field you may ‘imagine’ that the tree is an old man, or an old woman. Don’t dismiss this feeling as you are picking up the age of the Dryad. You will ‘know’ which of the trees is the Dryad.

Dryads are easy to recognise as they seem to ‘pull’ your awareness of their energy to them, through love and appreciation. You might be out walking and suddenly feel how beautiful a tree is. Your heart feelings are triggered. No matter how old, or young a Dryad is, you will feel a heart connection. DSCN0315

Trees which are close to human habitation are often ‘memory-holders, especially ones near churches or old human settlements! So they might choose to share with you the history of where they grow. That can be fascinating. Some of these trees, especially yew trees, grow to a very old age, so they can hold vast amounts of memory-energy.

Trees that are about to be felled, for one reason or another, might need other assistance, such as requesting that you hold the energy until either a new tree is planted, or another tree can be found to hold the energy elsewhere.

Some trees will communicate with you that they need to be cleared of negative energy, or healed, on some level. Just follow your impulses and do what the tree requests, just as you would a person. Sometimes trees are so filled with negative energy, such as toxic fumes from human existence, that there is nothing you can do for them. In those instances you just have to honour the experience of the tree, recognising their sacrifice to the environment. You could send those trees your appreciation of its work.

The more time you spend around Dryad’s, and within their energy-field, the more you will pick up the energy that they are picking up from the Earth’s consciousness. They know more about the world, and it’s future, than we do!

B0004259Sometimes when a tree wishes to communicate with you you will feel a ‘pulling’ sensation in your belly. It is literally ‘pulling’ your awareness to itself so that you stop and ‘talk’. Once you have stopped, with the intention of listening, you will know what to do, or the tree will show you what it is doing.

Trees always remind me of elephants! I think it must be because they are so huge and the fact that they hold memory. They also know what is coming for the world. After my last experience with the young beech tree in Farley Mount Woods I received this channelling. That made me realise that the tree’s connection to the earth means a lot more than I originally understood. They not only connect us to the past they also give us information about the future!

So when you blend your energy with a tree, be aware that anything could happen. Thankfully trees are way smarter than us and only give us what we are energetically able to manage. Another lesson we can learn from them.

I lately received a book I had been wanting for a long time, by Dorothy Maclean, one of the founders of Findhorn. Call of the Trees. Well worth buying if you want to work with tree consciousness. One of the most important messages which trees impart is the need for old, large trees. In cutting down our ancient trees we are cutting ourselves off from their important work. Not only do they do what we already know but they also transmit forces of energy into their surroundings, as I’ve already experienced. As the tree devas say:

We would emphasise the absolute necessity to have large trees for the well-being of the land. The control of such things as rainfall is often in our hands, but as well we draw forth inner radiances, which are as necessary to the land as rain.”

They say that mature trees are the skin of this world; take them away and the whole creature can no longer function, but dries up and dies. We need to be working with trees.B0003840

In the words of the Deva (overall consciousness) of the trees:

“Just tune into nature until you feel the love flow. That is your arrow into the Deva world. It does not matter if there is a message or not, it is the state which counts. Always it is your state which nature responds to, not what you say, not what you do, but who you are.”

From the Beech tree:

“When you are receptive to us, it is as if you are part of our forces; you blend in and you like it, and we like it. When you are not so tuned in, you are cut off and there is no contact between us. We send a blessing in this rare contact. We bless all who come within our influence, but generally it falls on barren ground. Still, we pour our blessing down in everlasting benediction, unmoved, as you come and go your various ways. Your reception repays us a hundred-fold and we give thanks to our creator.”

Reconnection.

DSCN0266I’ve been back in Winchester for a week and I still feel overwhelmed! As I drove to the woods, the only place that I feel secure in, I was aware of myself being in a glass bubble. I could see outside the glass, but I could not feel anything. I felt completely disconnected from everything.

I drove to the first place where I ever connected to earth energies, and which seems to be my entrance-point to the English energy-grid. Every-time I spend time away, it seems to be this tree wisdomplace I start off with again.

This was the only place I didn’t feel ‘bubble-wrapped’ in, so that was really good. I stood on the round barrow, where the Dryad  that gave me the tree wisdom symbol grows, and tuned in, but felt nothing but a slight soft energy in my legs. I wandered down a path I have never seen before and ended up in a wide open space, a lovely grassy plain. It felt wonderful; like ‘home’. I wandered down the path a bit and then felt the need to stop. As I stood still I felt like I was facing the wrong direction, so I shifted, and then all of the energy I had brought from Egypt began to flow into the earth. What a relief that was. I stood until my belly felt completely empty and then I walked back up the hill, enjoying being under the green, leafy branches once again.DSCN0269

As I came closer to the round barrow again, I felt my heart energy move out of my body. It looked, and felt, like my heart was a metre out in front of me. I could feel the stretch of it. I didn’t initially know why it was doing that, but I followed it as it pulled me forward, and then I found myself standing just in front of a young Beech tree that was growing at the base of the Barrow. My heart energy disappeared into the tree, even while it was still connected to me by a cord of energy. I stood waiting to see what would happen next. After a few minutes I felt my umbilical cord activate and it too moved into the tree, at the same level, then it changed direction and moved up the trunk to connect to my heart! Once it had connected, I could release it. It seemed strange to anchor myself in a tree, but it was obviously what I needed. I’ll have to wait and see why it was necessary.

I continued on up to stand on the barrow, but, again I was facing the wrong direction, so I turned a faced the same direction as earlier. That was where I needed to go next. I wondered if it was the Roman Site I used to spend a lot of time in. The mosaic from the site is in Winchester Museum.

DSCN0272The following day I went back up to Farleigh Mount and took the scenic route up to the villa site. It was very pretty! I had really missed all of the trees while I had been in Luxor, and am going to make the best of them while I am here! When I got to the site I sat and breathed, but did not feel the need to do anything. But then I heard what sounded like bird cries. I thought it was an owl, or a buzzard and it sounded like it was in distress. It turned out to be a faun, which had wandered away from its mother and was calling for her. It had gotten a little lost in the lost in the undergrowth. But I knew that it mother was around calling for it, so I sat back down and waited. She came and took her baby and all was well.

This little lesson, from Mother Nature, is one I have been learning in Egypt. “Mother knows best, so stop rescuing”! Seems I needed to be reminded of that here.

Tree Attunements.

2006-05-10 12.32.35A tree attunement is an attunement to the essence of tree consciousness. You do not literally become a tree, although that would be nice, but you do become the energy of Trees. This is because the heart energy of Trees can be downloaded into your system, via a ‘centre to centre’ link, where I feed you the essence of Trees, as I was fed by trees.

This is a little difficult to explain, but it began with a Dryad, in Coldridge Woods, in Wiltshire, in May 2006, where I had been doing an archaeological survey on an Iron Age Banjo enclosure. The tree grew in the woods, which had grown up around the settlement. I had taken a friend up there as I was training her in Reiki.

About a couple of hundred meters beyond the settlement site, lay the remains of a Roman Villa, which I was also surveying, with a colleague from Winchester University. We often field-walked this site, picking up bits of pottery and other Roman remains. Having taken my friend to the Banjo enclosure, and introducing her to the energies there, we went to do some field-walking on the Villa Site. On the way we passed a large old beech tree. Its energy ‘felt’ different and to me it felt like an old, wise man. We sat at the base of the tree and tuned in, but nothing happened, so we got on with our plan to field-walk.

Returning from the field we passed the tree again and this time we sat at the roots and tuned in again, just in case… My personal guide (spirit), Standing Bear, appeared and I felt his energy move into mine, blending like ink in water. Then I ‘saw’ a tube of energy move from my Hara/centre into the centre of the Tree; into its heartwood. Standing Bear told me that it might feel a little uncomfortable for a while. I always hate when he says that , as it usually an understatement!cosmic tree

I sat, while the liquid tree energy, its sap, flowed through this umbilical cord and into my centre, feeding me. I had to remain sitting in place until this stopped. When it was finished, the tube retracted, pulling back into my body, and I could leave.

This experience made me think more like a tree, just Being, plus being able to stand still, when I need to, rather than feeling I have to do something all the time. Trees help just by being there. They don’t go uprooting themselves when someone else screams for help. It’s not the tree’s responsibility to heal everyone, but it heals with its energy just by being itself, and sharing that energy with others. They are rooted in the earth, but their branches stretch high into the sky, touching the sun, and sky. They are capable of reaching deep into the earth, for nourishment, and high into the sky. Energetically this means that you can access the deep Earth layers and the upper vibrational layers of the Earth’s magnetic field, and higher dimensions.  You can access the higher dimensional energies and bring them deep into the Earth.

But that is not as easy as it seems. It takes hard, emotional work, to be like a tree. It is in our nature to rescue, to become involved, to save. But, in being a tree we have to learn to witness, while knowing that the work you do in not rescuing, not saving, not becoming involved, is just as valuable. It takes huge amounts of trust, and letting go of the pain, when others do not understand what we are doing. All they may see is our ‘abandoning’ behaviour, or our lack of caring. But we care very much. We witness it all, knowing that our standing still is doing more good than saving. We are allowing others to grow into their strengths, through their hard choices and difficulties. It is not everyone’s path to be a tree, as others have their own tasks with humanity, but for a person aligned with the energies of nature, that is often the way.

We use our ‘roots’ to hold human emotional energy and then root it someplace else, so that healing may happen. We are using our energy to heal, to create connections between other sites and other trees, to bring healing and balance to different areas, just like in my first experience with an ancient Yew tree. And it all happens through the earth.

My guides explained our Treeness like this:

The Tree.danebury-tree.jpg
When you began this journey you were but a speck in the ocean, a seed of creation, full of potentials yet unformed.
Today you stand as a tree, your potential grown and blossoming for all to see. You now bear the fruit of other’s potential in your branches. The fruit of your tree contains the seeds, which will one day mature into other trees and they, in their turn, will bear fruit which contain seeds of potential.
In this life you have grown and matured. You have moved through obstacles as you tried to root yourself in stony ground, which became your foundation. As you grew, you grew in strength, your roots trying to find the fertile soil of experience, which lay between the rocks and stones of your surroundings. Your branches ever sought the light of the sun, and the nurturing rain, which fell on your leaves. You expanded ever upwards, trying hard to grow no matter what the odds.

And here today, you stand connected. Your branches nourished by the soil/earth and stones. You have grown into a mighty oak, strong and tall, aware of the mighty currents which sweep through your branches. You stand solid and rooted, straight and true.
We ask you now to provide the fertile soil for the seeds which will fall from your tree, seeds which will need to develop the qualities of strength, love, joy and abundance.
Let nothing sway you from this task. Allow it to fill you, lighting every facet of your life until all that you do radiates life. Let the cells of your body become the repository of joy, not pain, love rather than hate. Let your life radiate the qualities of the tree, steadfast, nourishing and bountiful.
This is our wish for you today. Seek not without for the answers but within, for there you will find the seeds of creation which you will sow, and there too the light with which to nourish them.
Stand tall and be seen.

Eve’s Garden.

Replying to Deb-Aurah Araznu’s (link at bottom of page) status update on Facebook I decided that my reply needed some expanding. The poster was describing her experience of spiritual expansion and she spoke about the Garden of Eden. Having been brought up as a Catholic in a convent we were taught the story of Adam and Eve and the tree in the Garden of Eden. Needless to say, when I was  6 years old I didn’t question the wisdom of the nuns. After all, they were closer to God than I.

Eve in the Tree. John Coates.

Or maybe not! As I developed as a healer and worked more and more on the meaning of myth, often I would awaken from sleep with ‘realisations’. One morning I awoke with the image of a naked Eve standing on the roots of a large tree, with an apple in her hand, and she had a serpent entwined around her body. But this was not the Christian Eve. This was the Mother Goddess, a far more ancient version than the Christian vision.  The ‘knowing’ that went with this picture was this: Eve represented the Mother of Creation, nature, that which fed us and sustained our physical bodies. The apple that she was offering to mankind/Adam, was her wisdom and knowledge of the Divine Feminine; The path of the Mother. Divine Love. The serpent was the energy which flowed through the earth, it brought fertility to the land, and fed the people and all that lived upon it. The tree was the Tree of Life. Not in the way which the Jewish people understood it but as the vehicle through which the apples might be brought to humanity. The tree was life. It is only through living a physical life, experiencing the whole range of emotions and life events that we can truly grow.

Eve: the Primordial Mother. Adam: humanity.

We do not grow by forever being out of our bodies and in our minds; that growth is limited. The wisdom of the Mother therefore is the Mystery of Life, birth, death and everything in between. Our sacredness is experienced through our bodies. It is in the experience of living that we face our greatest challenges and experience our greatest joys. Through the realm of emotion we learn to overcome fear and to rise into our soul awareness, instilling in ourselves the flow of Divine Providence. The Mother is Abundance.

Isis as a tree giving food and water to to a man and his wife.

In Ancient Egypt the Mother Goddess Isis was represented by the Sycamore Tree which fed the Pharaoh and his family. But Isis, and Osiris, are said to have been born of Lusaaset, (The Great One who comes forth). She was the Grandmother of the Deities, and she too was an Acacia tree. She was the Goddess of Creation.

But why trees? Apart from the obvious link to the fact that they do provide life to humans in the form of food, syrup, water, and wood? Well, the answer to this also came in the shape of a ‘morning realisation’. I awoke, on another morning, with an image of the Kabbalah, the Jewish Tree of life superimposed on Egypt!

The Tree of Life.

While I was walking to work later that morning I had another image. The central ‘trunk’ of this tree was the Nile River, feeding the entire tree. The Branch containing the three spheres Hod, Gevurah and Binah were the Goddess Isis, the Divine Feminine. The opposite three, on the other branch was Osiris, the Divine Masculine. The Tree of life, in the Jewish tradition represented creation and the Divine Balance between the feminine and the masculine. But that wasn’t all. Each sphere represented a sacred place on the map of Egypt. The Isis spheres representing sites which were predominantly female and the Osiris spheres representing sites which were masculine in their nature. The spheres along the central trunk were sites where the energies were ‘balanced’ between male and female.

Map of Egypt.

The tree was not purely an esoteric idea but a real, workable map of energy sites where, when all these sites are functioning correctly, brings balance and abundance to the country. The lines on the tree show the connections between each site as all sites are connected via a matrix of energy lines which feed the landscape and its atmosphere with the energies of the site.  It functions a little like a Mother board in a computer. Remembering that the Hebrews came from Egypt with Moses, who was a priest, it is easy to see how the sacred knowledge went with them. But somewhere along the line the information was lost and it became a purely esoteric method of connecting to the Divine. The Mother aspect having been relinquished somehow.

Apples of the Goddess.

This brings us back to the garden of Eden! The Garden is the Realm of the Mother in Balance with the Father. For the tree cannot exist without the life-giving sun and rain. But the Hebrews who brought the knowledge of the Tree of Life and the Garden of Eden decided that they no longer needed the Mother. They could do it all themselves, even though to begin with they obviously brought the belief in Hathor, in the form of the Golden cow, with them, along with the story of Isis and the tree. But the story of Divine Harmony and Balance was distorted so that now the Divine Feminine was reduced to being a tempting harlot, weak and ignorant, bringing shame to mankind and forcing their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Somehow the Hebrew God became the fearful, avenging and angry God who hated the Mother and all women of the Earth.

So what part of ‘Honour thy Father AND thy Mother’ did they not understand?
