Talk to the Trees

by Kathy Fitzpatrick
(Grand Rapids, MI. )

For years, people chuckled when I told them how I was able to communicate with trees, learning their names, their history and even information about myself. I felt their strength flow through me in times of weakness, their love and concern.

Which is why, when I am feeling stressed or overwhelmed, I take off my shoes and walk barefoot in nature.

As I wander through the wonders of our backyard garden, I make my way over to our large pine tree. I gently place a bough in to my hands and ask the tree to recalibrate my vibration to match that of the earths vibration.

Soon I feel a pulsation in my hands, and then can feel the 'pulse' flowing from my toes to the top of my head. This helps ground me to the earth, calming me down with good vibrations that never cease to amaze me. How simple it is to become grounded and more mindful when we take time to commune with nature.

Through the years I have taken many a skeptic interested in stress relief out to nature to select a tree or plant to ground them. Each time they were amazed at not only how simple the process, but how much better they felt, calm and refreshed. The negative energy swirling in our heads was replaced with a sense of calm.

If you have never 'talked' to a tree before here are some simple steps:

1. Take a nature walk. Use your body to become aware of the vibrations around you emanating from the trees and plants. Let your body guide you to a tree to talk to. It may be the biggest or the smallest, it doesn't matter. Let go of 'thinking' with the mind and 'feel' with your body.

2. After selecting your tree, reach out and greet it. You can do this out loud or telepathically.



3. Place your hands on the trunk of the tree or in the case of an evergreen, place your hands on a bough. You can simply touch the tree, hug it or sit with your back up against it. Honor your comfort zone.

4. Close your eyes and become quiet. Allow the energy of the tree to 'speak to you'. After several minutes you may feel pulsations in your hands or back if your back is against the tree and a bit later pulsations flowing from your feet to your head. Or you may feel nothing at all, it does not matter.

5. If you have a particular question in mind, ask the tree. It may 'speak' back to you telepathically or you may sense an answer, see colors or any numbers of things. Each person receives communication in their own unique way, there is no right or wrong. However you will have a sense of knowing when the answer arrives.

6. During this time of rapid change the vibration of the earth is constantly changing. Because of this each time I commune with my favorite tree I ask tree to be recalibrated to same vibration as the earth. So after you have intuited your answer ask the tree to recalibrate your vibration to match that of the earth.

7. When you are finished honor and thank the tree with a simple "Namaste" or whatever you are comfortable with.

Nature fills us with joy in a way the material world never can. When we talk to trees we become more of who we are.


PS. A friend of mine talks to the trees each time she gets in her car for a drive. She states her name and then asks the trees for protection.

Trees
by: Sithuli

I love trees. I believe trees can talk, but I never spoke with one.

I love trees. But the only thing is that humans cut trees and imagine how the world would look like without trees! When I plant a tree, I feel very happy. Then the plant would slowly grow into a giant tree with lots of fruits! Trees give us lots of oxygen and keeps the carbon dioxide level low. If we don't cut trees, the world will be a greener place.

We are all connected
by: Cathleen

When I accepted the fact that we are all connected to source I began to hear the trees in southern Az speak. I asked the mesquite trees to speak to the Redwoods to let them know I was coming to visit them. my friend took a picture of me speaking to the Redwoods and my torso was radiating light. I believe this was just confirmation that we are all connected and need to honor and respect each other. blessings

Communication with my Willow Tree guide
by: Anonymous

When I was about 11 years old, I had the first communication from the leader tree ( old chestnut tree and he was male). Years later, I got married and we purchased house and there were two beautiful willow trees in our backyard. They both are very powerful, but there is one on our right side had always communicated to me. During my meditation, I had a privileged to officially speak to her and she spoke back. She said " I will protect you, your house, and whomever you love and care." I cup my hand to place it on her, and I feel her beautiful and strong vibration and it takes my breath away! It almost feel like magnet. She told me to build a labyrinth and share her with all my friends. I feel so blessed and grateful everyday...: )

Trees told me how they grow...
by: The Lightbearer

I thought i had gone nuts the 1st time i heard the trees in my backyard talking to me. I was wondering why the tree-house attached on one side to two trees was not lifting up as the trees grew. Suddendly i heard this slow, patient clear voice saying: "because we flow around it". Suddenly i "saw" this picture in my head, like they gave me a little video: The earth spinning with trees "flowing" out the crust. Like if you have a spinning ball with a small hole filled with water?...the centrifugal forces will create a little spray coming out? The picture i saw had the trees "flowing out" the crust. Basically they showed how they overcome growing against gravity: They make use of the centrifugal force of earth and water as a pneumatic fluid.

how i met mr tree
by: Anonymous

Ive been going to a particular park for years now. I always love climbing the various trees there, and as of recent discovered how relaxing it is.

I was lying in the branches of a tall evergreen when suddenly I heard a voice. I looked around, only to realize the voice came from inside my head. He told me to calm down, and then said my name.

When I asked him how he knew my name, he told me he had been watching over me for many years, and had grown quite fond of my friend and me. Then he went on to introduce me to his wife, and gave me a nut. He told me to plant it in the winter, and it would protect my friends and me during a time of danger.

We planted the nuts soul in the spiritual world, and came to find he's really friendly. Since then, whenever I walk through the woods, I can hear voices in my head greeting me, and I can place which tree they belong to.

my feelings about talking to trees
by: Anonymous

All I have to say is talking to trees is both amazing and a little scary.

Take that, laughers!
by: Luna Ginerva Lox

I know a better way to talk to trees. For the last week people have laughed at me, not when I taught them how. Now, when I tell them I can do something they believe me. My way is a lot faster and just today, I encountered a tree named Pearl who is really nice. I also met Joshua, Jennifer, Anabelle, Jerry, James, and Ken.

I love trees!
by: Debbie Lattuga

I always have. Although I have not tried to speak directly, I have sat in communion with them.

My favorite trees in a movie are the ones in Phenomenon with John Travolta. When Kira Sedgewick starts rocking back and forth like the trees... I just love that.

I have a couple 'favorite' trees. I definitely will be speaking with them this week.
