My name is of no consequence, you may call me what you will. We have known each other before in many different guises.
I foraged in the woodland for flowers, leaves, herbs, nuts and fruits. Working with nature and talking with the trees, living a simple but good life, rich in understanding and knowledge. I share with you the gifts from Mother Earth and the Tree of Life.
If you listen you can hear the trees talking to you, telling their story and sharing their wisdom.
The wind rustles through the leaves and the magic has begun.
Mysteries contained within its sturdy roots, solid trunk and seeking branches, unravelling time itself and the wonders it beholds.
There in front of you stands the mighty oak. Ask its permission to draw close, put your arms around it, hugging its form. Connect with your root chakra at the base of your spine and sense its impatient energy as it moves down your legs into your feet. The energy now longing to make that connection with Mother Earth. Visualise roots coming from the soles of your feet, reaching down deep into the earth the energy now surging through those roots and into the earth’s energy connecting with the roots of the tree, entwining and revitalising.
Open your heart chakra and sense it connecting with the very heart of the tree and feel the flow of loving energy pouring into you as you in return love back. Place your forehead on the bark of the tree, and visualise your third eye connecting with every part of the tree, and the wisdom and knowledge contained within. You are now part of the tree - the roots growing in the fertile soil of Mother Earth, bringing nourishment up to the heart of the oak enabling its branches to soar to the sky, its leaves unfolding to the sun’s rays and eventually bringing forth the fruits of its labour.
When you have listened to the oak, give thanks for its knowledge and strength and know that its wisdom is there whenever you have need.
