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.

  • 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.

How to Check In With Your Success

If you have been following my blog then you are aware that this in my year to raise my confidence. I am unafraid to be transparent; I am a confident gal, but am striving to raise this even higher than ever before.

Checking In 

Did you choose a word of the year? If not, it is not too late to begin.

We are halfway through the year. This is a great way to check in.

How is it going?

Have you had moments of grandeur?

Have you had moments of losses?

Brava for both. Losses mean growth. Wins mean growth. The ultimate is growth

Celebration

No matter what celebrate, celebrate and celebrate.

Pop that cork and honor you and all that you do!

Happy Grateful Heart Sucesssful Light Magical Blessings

Transparency

So far my growth has been thriving in a way that has surprised me. I  began my Master’s program again and am making major gains in letting go of crapola energies that never belonged to me.

My losses have been staying in a cycle and holding onto a pattern that needs to be gone; never to return again. It’s a nasty multi-layer bugger that has become adept in hiding and this time; the motto is never again; thy will be done; time to unravel and let this go.

However, with that being said. I am finding the my chosen word is not the word that has shown over and over I find myself leaning much more to comfort. It is a comfort that I have not felt before; it is getting comfortable with who I am: true authenticity.

All things considered, I am super excited to be where I am.

Most Important

Don’t sweat the small stuff and Accentuate the big deals! 

Short and sweetly to the point.

However, if you feel that you need a reading, mentorship be sure to reach out. I would love to guide you to your absolute success!

 

Oodles of Love & Magical Blessings,

Battle plan

You can rock your world magical blessingsOkay, warrioress or warrior, time to take off the kid gloves and don your sword and shield, but not in a real sense; this is a metaphoric sense.
