Planet 1 - Peace and Connection - The Tree (part 2)

by Veronica Molinski

Go to next chapter…

I find myself standing next to a tree. The bark, dehydrated and knotty, resembles that of a dry river bed, where lines of water that once were, now remain empty, parched and cracked. The bark resembles the face of an elder whose time has come, each line an expression of the moments they have had. The unworldly quality of this tree comes from its clear and transparent center. The bark curves and cuts into and out of the tree like a worm making its way through the dirt. These designs make the tree seem hollow or empty on the center as if the bark is supported by an empty tube within. When looking at the tree one can see completely through to the other side. Choosing to lay a hand on this tree would not only allow you to touch the texture of its bark, but with care and creativity one could even angle their hand and fingers, in just the right way, to push through the open maze and out to the other side. This is one of the trees of my home planet, and this is the first thing I see once the fuzziness in my eyes adjusts[…

As I begin my approach towards this tree I can feel my body pulling towards the empty spaces within its center. My consciousness feels, connected to the tree and like a magnet my body receives its quiet call. Placing a hand onto the tree my awareness seeps into every open space until a singular form between the two of us is created, Tree and Being unite. My awareness no longer holds any shape of my human-like body; I became the heart, mind, and body of the tree the combination of our two energies creates a pearl-like white shimmering light that fills in between the bark and the inner tube of the tree. As the connection of my light body is made with this tree I find I cannot move past a strong longing sensation that is connected to a dyer thirst that this tree holds. In unison with this feeling I hear the tree speak to the part of me that remains individual. The feeling was so gentle yet its force was unmistakably firm.

“Water?” As if in some symbiotic conversation with the tree I know what it wants before it asks, yet I feel it ask me as if still separate from itself. Questioning the tree back, I ask. “Has it rained?” To this the tree replied. “No.” This must be the reason for the amazing thirst I am feeling. At this request I feel a light connection between the tree and the clouds above. Finding the necessary strength within my individuality, I peel my light body away from the tree and use this newly discovered cord to direct my energy towards the clouds above. As my light body finds its way into this new relationship with the clouds I ask in the same connected yet separate way that I did with the tree. “Clouds, can you help gather the moisture from the air below and bestow a rainfall to help hydrate and nourish the trees?”

Without question or pause the clouds oblige, swelling up with just enough moisture to provide rain over the tree and landscape below. I can feel a great amount of energy cultivate around my light body as the cloud I remain connected with begins its work. As this interaction between cloud and tree continued I found a new cord formed from the cloud that allows me to reconnect with the tree, simply by shifting my mind I return to its hallow trunk. Drinking deeply, the tree holds a deep appreciation for the rain and moisture surrounding its extensive and established root system. While the tree roots absorb the water and continue to drink, I feel it appropriate to ask how and why I was being given a staring roll in this event. Finding my own words, I speak from my mind. “What does this mean and how is this even possible? Through this question my light body pulls away from the tree and collects itself into what feels like a human body once again. After fully connecting to and with myself I hear the calm, warm and reassuring voice of the angel in my mind. “Jenessee. You experience this now t“o help remind you. There is a disconnect happening at this exact moment with the people who reside on planet Earth.” With this statement I could sense the singularity amongst humans and the disconnectedness from the trees, wind, fire, water and light that surround them. “Jenessee please understand that in order to have complete balance and resonance with the elements, Earths’ humans have to remember. They must “begin connecting with all the living parts of nature to ensure that balance and harmony prevail. The simple gesture of placing a hand on a tree to feel the vibration and depth of its energy can have harmonious effects for both tree and human, yet the concept is so distant that humans no longer seek this connection to nature. They have lost the desire to feel the energy held within its body. The balance between all living things is necessary to create a home that is balanced and suitable for all, yet as your race distances itself from this connection this connection distances itself from you. Both losing concern for the other.” Thinking for a moment, I take my time to respond as I need to visualize what this voice is saying.

So our ability to interact with nature simply by being around it can help reconnect our energy to our Earth? This will begin to balance out the changing frequencies of our planet allowing us to live harmoniously with nature?” “Yes.” The Angelic voice replied. “In order to keep your planet in harmony with all of its inhabitants you must continue to keep a connection to all things that surround you. As humans become more occupied by the constant impulses of their mental bodies their vibration changes and they go through a detachment of their organic physical surroundings. Their energetic fields are more ridged and not in a state of coherence, blocking the subtle yet calming outside impulses and vibrations from nature.

Before I respond to the warm voice in my mind, I mull over everything the Angel just said and put it together in a way that I think makes sense. “So, what you’re saying is that humans end up narrowing their intention, focusing entirely on our mental body, rather than observing what is within our environment. We dwell on issues of our past or attempt to predict our future and this takes our energy out of the earth and places it into a different vibration making it difficult to manifest what we want and need. It is this which keeps us from being completely present in our surroundings?” “Yes, Dear One, You Understand!” said the Angel.

The warm flow of energy disappears and the voice pulled away. I take this time to admire the presence of the tree and review all the lessons it has chosen to bring my way. The importance of the tree is to find balance and harmony with all living things that surround us in life That means there are times when our mental bodies are too active with thought and we project into our field, thoughts and ideas that distract us from the present moment. To be able to find harmony and balance with nature, humans should permit the opening of their mental bodies to the present moment allowing this intuitive connection with nature to flow through. The tree is a symbol for our ability to be present and open to the needs of the energetic field surrounding us.

The tree is calling us to feel the field surrounding us and listen to the call of what is needed, not what our mental field has contrived to keep us distracted. The tree asks us to release our agenda, opening ourselves to receive that which is of our highest importance in this time and space, moving forward with patience and understanding before we make decisions, and to listen to the deep wisdom within ourselves and our surroundings. Completing this memory exercise on the ground, next to the tree, I feel another energetic connection begin to happen between the tree and myself. This time the energy starts to engage through my back body which is currently bolstered by the trunk of the tree. All at once as if the tree itself energetically grabs my mind I am downloaded with thoughts of the people of Earth. I can see and feel how closed off our human minds are to the subtle impulses surrounding them from nature. I mentally attach to the trees life-force with the part of my awareness that feels individual and separate.

“I get it!” I say this as a wide smile begins forming on my face. “We are being called to open ourselves to the oneness of the planet Earth and allow all things to guide us on our path for greatest achievement and success. The ability to completely balance ourselves within our field will inevitably align us to the bigger picture. It is all possible if we can simply open our mental field to receive the subtle impulses of the world that surrounds us. We must let go of our narrow focus and self-controlled directives, allowing our path to present itself to us when we are ready. By holding onto our mental field, we shut out the simple connection with Earth its inhabitants and all of the divine wisdom held within each. We must be pliable and willing to melt into our surroundings, trusting in what is presented.” “Our Earth is here to support us, and by connecting our energy back into it we can help keep our frequencies aligned with one another. This in turn will allow all energies to grow in a harmonious way together instead of creating separation.” A sudden warmth takes over my entire being, I now know this to be the connection to a loving and trusted being, in this case the tree. No longer do I have any sense of individuality but feel expansive and grounded. I breathe and feel as if I am quenched through every tree doting this landscape. I feel and understand the wisdom and depth of each of the trees surrounding me. Finally, I let go completely and become connected. Finding that I am everything and nothing at this precise moment in time. This acknowledgment from nature feels righter than anything I have ever known. It is here in this moment of peace that this world dissolves.
