Tree energy

Trees are the largest and most spiritually advanced plants on earth. They are constantly in meditation, and subtle energy is their natural language. As your understanding of this language grows, you can begin to develop a relationship with them. They can help you open your energy channels and cultivate calm, presence, and vitality. You can reciprocate by helping them with their blockages and devitalized areas. It is a mutually beneficial relationship that needs cultivation.


Healing Abilities of Trees

Taoist Masters observed that trees are tremendously powerful plants. Not only can they absorb carbon dioxide and transform it into oxygen, but they can also absorb negative forces and convert them into useful energy. Trees firmly root with the Earth, and the more rooted the tree, the higher it can extend to Heaven. Trees stand very still, absorbing the Earth’s Energy and the Universal Force from the Heavens.

Trees and all plants can absorb the light of the energies and transform it into food. In fact, they depend on light for most of their nourishment, while water and earth minerals make up about 30% of their nutritional intake. Trees can live very long lives.

Tree as Healer and Friend

You can reciprocate by helping them with their blockages and devitalized areas. It is a mutually beneficial relationship that needs cultivation.

Choosing a Tree to Work With

Throughout history, human beings have used all parts of the tree for healing and medicine. The best trees for healing are big trees, especially pines. Pine trees radiate Chi, nourish blood, strengthen nervous systems, and contribute to long lives. They also nurture souls and spirits. Pines are the “Immortal Tree.” Early Chinese poetry and painting is full of admiration for pines.

Although pine trees are often the best choice, many other trees or plants can be used. The larger trees contain the most energy. Among the most powerful are trees growing near running water. Some trees feel warmer or hotter than others; some feel cooler or colder than others.

You do not need to go far out into the forest to find an appropriate tree to work with. Trees that are used to having people around understand our energy and are more accessible and friendly than those far out in the wilderness. City parks and suburban yards are full of powerful and available trees that would love to have closer relationships with the humans that dominate their environment.

There is a certain size range within which trees are most available to people. When a tree is too small, it does not have enough energy to make much of an impression on you. When the tree is too big, you have the opposite problem, so it takes more persistence to get large trees to take an interest in you. As a source of healing energy, it is best to choose a large, robust tree from within the accessible size range. For playful interaction, it is best to choose a small to medium sized tree. While it is not necessary to climb the tree to develop a relationship, it does open up the whole new world. Climb gently and carefully so as not to harm the tree.

Establishing Communion with a Tree

There are certain methods of approaching, interacting with, retreating from, and taking leave of a tree. By following specific steps, you create a ritual of silent communion that both you and the tree can understand, and so increase the potential for harmonious interaction. The steps came from the observation of the natural course of events in subtle energy communion. These measures apply to communion with just about anything: tree, rock, human, or animal, although the following is concerned specifically with trees.

First of all, each tree, like each person, has a personality, desires, and a life of its own. Trees differ widely in their taste for human contact. Some are very generous and want to give you all the energy you can take. Others are weak or the ill and need your comforting and healing power. Some are just friendly souls who enjoy human company. Others are quite indifferent to you. You can learn and grow by working with all of them. Try to be open and respectful, rather than pressing the trees to serve your purposes. In this way, they will provide you with more than just another source of Chi: friendship, playful expression, and love.

Trees operate on a longer time scale than do human beings. You can help to bridge this gap by returning again and again to the same tree so that a relationship develops. Regularly visit so that the tree knows when to expect you and can look forward to seeing you. You may have the distinct impression that the tree misses you when you do not visit it for a longer time than usual.

Spiritual communion with trees resembles lovemaking more than any other human activity. As such, a quality of sensuality and tenderness should be present. You do not always have to be in control of the situation. Allow some time just to relax and melt into the communion. Let the tree lead you into the wonders of its inner life. Working with trees in this way can help to ease sexual frustration. You may find that some of the practices presented here can are easily adapted for use in lovemaking.
