7 Spiritual Lessons From Trees

All of my life, I have been luckily surrounded by the spiritual lessons of trees. Whether these were in my yard,  large city parks near my home or now being the lucky owner of an undeveloped forest.

As a child I would play in the forest for hours at a time. I danced with fairies, spoke with elves and Tree Unconditional Love Spiritual Lessons Magical Blessings enjoyed the whinny of unicorns. To me, the forest is a magical place; even now.

This is a place I often go to restore from life’s stressors, let go of anxieties and re-fuel my well. There are times when a very tattered human being enters a forest and a happy, whimsical being leaves.

Tree’s Feelings

Trees have emotions and feelings just like any living person, animal or creature.  Check out the book ” The Hidden Life of Trees: What they feel, How they Communicate- Discoveries From a Secret World  “ * by Peter Wohllenben

The love of a tree is everything!

Japanese Forest Bathing 

Shinrin-yoku is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere” or “forest bathing.” This was developed in the 1980’s in Japan for health benefits. According to Dr. Qing Li is the author of  Forest Bathing: How Trees Can Help You Find Health and Happiness.” * 

There is mindfulness to Shinrin-yoku.

  • Go to a Forest.
  • Walk slowly.
  • Breathe.
  • Open all your senses.
  • Allow the forest to fill you with oxygen.
  • This is the healing way of Shinrin-yoku Forest Therapy,
    the medicine of simply being in the forest.

Meditation with Trees

  • After you have repeated this on both sides ask: “Tree may I give you a hug?” 
  • The tree will most likely say yes. Go give the tree a hug and allow the tree’s energy to hug you.
  • Remain for as long as you need.
  • Please thank the tree before you go. “Thank you dear tree for sharing your love with me.” 
  • Last thing, ask the tree if it will be your friend. “Tree will you please be my friend.” 

You have meditated with a tree and made a new friend. 

7 Spiritual Lessons From Trees 

  1. Trees are welcoming. They offer unconditional love.
  2. A tree has a humble beginning. They are planted as a tiny seed and grow into massive beings just like you
  3. Trees are strong, but flexible. A tree needs to be able to sway in the wind or they would surly break. Sway like a tree during stressful moments in life, and you will remain strongly unbroken. Be like a tree who has a strong root system and are flexible: survive and thrive.
  4. Tree Nature Forest They may stand alone, but are connected to their forest. Just as you are an individual; you are also connected in a unified way to the collective consciousness and those around you known and unknown.
  5. Be patient. They do not become their size nor strength overnight It takes years, decades for a tree to grow so large. Patience is divine; God’s in charge and you will receive what you need in divine timing. Many give up just before the miracle occurs.
  6. The woods adapt to their surroundings. Each season is a time for its own beauty.  When fall arrives the leaves change and then let go as they fall away in preparation for the upcoming winter. During winter they add extra layers and when spring arrives they welcome their new growth and then fully showing their full beauty during summer.
  7. Trees are timeless and wise. They improve as they age from all of their growth, lessons and living; just as we humans do.

Natasha, I would love to learn more about meditation.

Showing Truth Blacklisted Confidence Courage Magical Blessings

How Showing Your Truth Can Get Ya Blacklisted

Here you are showing the world who you truly are and then all of a sudden you are blacklisted.

What?

Why?

How Come?

Seriously, Natasha you have been showing me how to be my true self and this happens.

What gives?

Thumbs Down

Sorry, Charlie, but there will be adjustments in your vibrational field. Those who get ya will glow brightly with you; those who do not, won’t; and, if you are truly honest with yourself, they probably never did.

You did nothing wrong. You are being you. Please do not revert backwards to appease others. In truth, several months back I did some major energy work and I was petrified with how my BeLoved would respond. We had a nice long deep discussion, almost like a preclude and I told him I love him very much, but I need to take care of me, no matter what. He supported me and off I went.

Courage Confidence Magical BlessingsThere were moments of mega adjustment; parts of us smashing against an old vibration that had sold its story to the highest bidder. Slowly, we worked through things and began to grow into a much deeper love. So, my love life worked out well.

Other relationships tanked and set sail for destinations unknown. I wished them well and spent much time in nature and reconnecting with me. I discovered, explored and enjoyed me even more.

Score

Some of the things I had held onto with regret disappeared and a bravery pulsed through my veins. I have always had my own style of dress; this time my head held high. I also watched my BeLoved join in with me. Clothes shopping is not something we love; yet, we had so much fun shopping and discovering new styles that we held in our hearts and now stepped out to show the world.

Or when I turned my blonde hair tips lavender. I even went on a job interview with them. I respectfully tucked this in a ponytail during the interview; and was hired. I tackled feats, broke through barriers and discovered an even deeper sensually, sexual goddess.

Go for the Gold

Do you see? You are the golden treasure. You have a map deep within you as to who you are and what you are destined for. Unroll that map, seek your treasure and see the golden nuggets that reside deep within you.

Woot, Woot I am so proud of you!!

Dream Big Make Happen Choice Chance Change Magical Blessings

What’s Your Word of the Year

Last year I did something new. One day while I was meditating, I heard a word over and over. It was crystal clear as if an angelic wind swept through my ear drums sweetly singing me this word; I wrote the down the word: Serenity. I made a pact with myself that I did indeed need more serenity and asked Spirit what was the next step.

Don’tcha just love when there seems like hollowness and now the angelic voice is quiet. I shrugged my shoulders and ventured onward: I was worn out, my love life seemed lost, my two young adult boys moved into their own spaces. Nothing felt right as I tided the house. It felt dismal and dark.

Changes

Change #1: 

Boom, whap OH NO! Roof flapping in the wind. My BeLoved to the rescue. Yeah!

Change #2: 

Water everywhere. In the house, outside of the house. In fact during a storm, I stood in the middle of my house with water rushing past me like I was standing on an island in the middle of a river. So many things began to break. OMG! My house is evicting me. UGH! It wants a family, “please let me go. You will find better.”

Change #3:

Choice Chance Change Magical Blessings Laid off; house up for sale. I barely have time to get everything out in the time that it sells and the new owners take possession. Due to that I donated, and gave away 90% of my items.

Change #4:
I moved in with my BeLoved. I am scared of what has occurred with us before. Yet, my heart says hush. It’ll get better.

Change #5: 

Looking for a new space. The land finds us. It’s an amazing, peaceful. SERENE; it is serenity at its best.  Do want to hear the funny part? It was 9 months when I chose Serene for my word of the year to when we purchased our dream land and begin to prepare to build our dream home. Nice Delivery!

Things Aren’t Always As They Seem

Now when you read about all the changes, it seems scary and plain fucked up. Trust me I have said aloud many a times this year, “Spirit, can I have a rest?” Spirit gave me 3 months to rest and yep another change. A job showed; it needed me as much as I needed it.  Building your dream home requires happy underwriters.

With each transition, I was shifting into the most amazing serenity deep within me. So, what may seem daunting; really wasn’t. Spirit was creating ways for me to let go and to flow into my own serenity.

Will She Do It Again? 

Yes, yes I am!  I have no idea what will show nor what will happen. Or that’s what I say out loud My heart and soul know the way, and I am getting out of their way so we can have more…

Are ya Ready…

Unicorn Light Power Confidence Hope Warrior Warrioress Magical BlessingsConfidence

Believing that YOU Can

Now, one word of caution. I worked out all of the kinks.

Ask Believe Receive Magical Blessings Faith Trust Confidence Choice Chance Change LET GO of EXPECTATIONS OR WHAT YOU “THINK” the WORD MEANS.

Please trust me when I say Ask. Believe. Receive.

Things may not show up as you deem or think they should. Spirit knows what it is doing and will align you in the most magical of ways; even if it means letting go of people, places and things. This is about you and what your heart and soul need; if you allow it.

 

I wish you so much Luck, Love and Light on your incredible journey!

I ask one thing; please share your word and story with me, I would love to hear it!

Oodles of Love & Magical Blessings,

Natasha
