Yep…the hippie tree huggers had it right! Trees help us in connecting with something larger than ourselves. They are the abodes of the nature spirits…they call us to a state of mindfulness and compassion towards our surroundings. They are the highest spiritually evolved plants on this earth as their roots wrap around the earth and their branches embrace the heavens. They symbolize the potential ascent of us human beings from this realm of matter to the high reaches of the spirit world.
Have you hugged a tree lately?? Do you need to touch in with trees energy of stability, grounding and security? The trees aura or vibration is slower, deeper and more concentrated than any other living being. I thank the tree for supporting me through my journey of grief by giving the tree some Reiki / Spiritual healing energy and a prayer of gratitude.
