Trees - Our Everlasting Teachers of Interconnections via Nature
It is a time to keep the steps to rebirthing always forward. However, it feels at times we are stepping backward or standing still and going nowhere. This is a mental block we plant and time to unroot those weeds of stagnancy. As I woke to the ocean facing it, I heard the waves going in and out a hint of sea salt air in the breeze. It was the opening of the new unfolding with the sunrise. I heard the howler monkeys making their calls of awakening and alerting each other of the new day ahead of them. I then saw the mountains before me and its greenery and diverse plants and trees. There was one tree that stood out to me. The Nature spirit formed and was speaking a universal lesson to me to share.
In this journey; I have learned alot about the darkness and the little me as some authors and spiritual teachers have spoken about. I am not excluded being swallowed up by illusions of connectedness only by exterior connections. The pandemic and the deaths in the family caused me to reflect how precious our time is on earth. Temporary yet precious and the gifts we receive aren’t always in the most pleasant way to grow but all of our experiences are Purposeful Peaceful Pause in Peace. We need the time to heal ourselves and each other and it begins with the ability to be alone in stillness and not speaking but listening and witnessing everything before us. Hearing the nothingness that leads to somethingness.
The tree continued the universal lesson telling me that we are all like a family of trees and our interconnection is below through our roots in the earth. We are planted by our intention to journey into growth and as the wind, birds or insects or animals carry us on our way; we fall into the darkness where we are planted into the soil.The elements that drive us deeper are our helper to encourage us to grow. Without each other; we cannot move or grow. Where we land; it is considered our sacred space. Any space is sacred when our minds are focused on this. We are a community and our energetic vibrations are felt from us on in this unseen but intricate web of life and sound and feeling.
We too have a connection but we become forgetful and uproot ourselves and mingle with a new community or affiliation or people. We forget ourselves because the uprooting does disrupt our connection but we must find ourselves by planting ourselves in a sacred space we call home again and adaption into this is possible. Like the saying "Home is where you make it." We are never stagnant. When humans disconnect in the uprootedness; we tend to find our connection exteriorly but it is a false connection. We must be like the trees and nature and observe and spend time alone with ourselves and be the quiet observer. If we are not ever rooted because we say excuses like “I was abused” and “I was not able to do this or that to connect” and we spend our time in confusion and wanting others to give us our clarity instead of being still and listening to nature. When we are connected; we see everything as possible to connection. This is the gift nature has gifted ourselves by self realizations.
My ego had gotten in the way at times as we all do and we were challenged to believe our identity and connection depended on outer influences to gift us our own potential to realize and decide and do this for ourselves. We are the potential of light in Purposeful Peaceful Pause. In our painful progress; we learn the truth of the little selves we have paid attention to instead of our Divinity.
The trees accept each other and like the waves in the ocean; the patterns of vibrations are always in movement and never stagnant no matter how large, gentle, high or low and wild. The sand expresses the flow in the ways these patterns are involved in the energetic movements. The patterns of the clouds display the energetic patterns from constant movements and expressions that are always moving. We see these expressions everywhere. Even our emotions tells us falsely what is permanent but this also is a wave of energetic impulses or waves. It is unseen but these energetic expressions or impulses are similar to fiber optic transmission. There is sound and waves express this energetic expression in sonar as well that animals can communicate.
Believe in yourself and know the little self can fool you especially in times of darkness and we can find ourselves disconnected believing what the physical is the only way our energy is expressed but it is our divine and sacred space we can plant ourselves first. We are always sacred and we uproot ourselves and must learn to wherever we plant ourselves is sacred space. Just use your mind and listen to your heart. Your soul can guide you through this as nature and this tree has taught me and I share with you.
Remember how sacred you are and be this Divine Expression that we are eternally are in the Light in no doubt, fear or anxiety. Take some deep breaths and see yourself as a seed blowing in the wind, traveling on an animals or insect and dropped off at a sacred space called home with complete satisfaction in your growth. You can never be uprooted only in your sense of loss that you feel this but you and Mother Earth can be home again by just having yourself rooted like the tree and feeling all things are energetically connected. YOU are not alone, YOU are Family and YOU are sacred. Much love and hope this helps you. Loving Light Hugs to YOU.
Namaste and always much much unconditional expansive light LOVE to YOU.
