Sensing the Spirit of a Tree
Stand close to a tree and let your awareness go down into the root system where it absorbs nutrients from the earth. Follow the flow up into the trunk, the branches and then the leaves. The leaves are open to receive the light of the sun. Hold your awareness of the whole tree and then expand your focus slightly to be aware of the whole energy body of the tree. Stay quietly with this sense of the whole tree, and its spirit may become quite clear to you.
-from Working With Angels, Fairies And Nature Spirits (p. 59)
The forest is a rich place full of dream shadows and windows of light. There is a fertile soil in darkness, and the shadow world is very much alive on and below the forest floor. Once the life inside this darkness is revealed by light, we can appreciate the rich life in the shadows. The shadow space is always working within us, and it is up to us to have the courage to delve in and shed light into the wisdom of the shadow.
With love, light and shadows, I honor the dance between my fertile shadow dreams and my radiant light body.
This is the dance of existence. The cosmic dance indeed includes light and shadow.
This is what I learn from the forest.
This is a lovely ripe pu erh block I bought from Phoenix Teas in Burien WA.
It is delicious.
Pu erh teas are super healthy tea due to the microbial fermentation process and healthy bacterias that forms inside the cake during the fermentation process. This cake is rich and dark, and when brewed, earthy and a bit malty, yet very smooth to drink.
