Approaching the sacred we gather ourselves appropriately and pull in our power and center in love. We honor sacred land. The realms around us see and feel our presence and wait for us to love. This creates a chemical reaction throughout the space around us and is instantly felt by all that is. This is our part as an independent species connected to the greater whole. We are a part of the system, not controllers of it. In this way we connect to the ever flowing evolutionary flux around us which works to balance all things whether we are aware of it or not. Nature seeks to balance herself and has the tools to do it with or without mankind’s assistance. We are a part of the system and because of this we can enhance it with our intentional and lucid love. Injecting the feeling of love into the natural world around us is a powerful way to connect and feel the greater whole that we truly are.

It is known that trees share their nutrients through their roots out into the underground system below when they are preparing to die. The larger the tree the larger the amount of nutrients sent out. Trees have the ability to communicate with other trees through the fungi systems in the ground. There is a complex and very real system that turns these into a very large, very real communication system. We have been wrongfully taught that these living vibrant sentient beings are nothing more then useful resources or items to take down at our fancy. We have been taught incorrectly that inanimate things do not have life the way animate things do. This is a mistruth and a lie.

Suzanne Simard, forest ecologist at the University of British Columbia, and her colleagues have made the major discovery that trees and plants really do communicate and interact with each other. She discovered an underground web of fungi connecting the trees and plants of an ecosystem. This symbiosis enables the purposeful sharing of resources, consequently helping the whole system of trees and plants to flourish.

Simard was lead to the discovery by the observation of webs of bright white and yellow fungal threads in the forest floor. Many of these fungi were mycorrhizal, meaning they have a beneficial, symbiotic relationship with a a host plant, in this case tree roots. Microscopic experimentation revealed that the fungi actually moves carbon, water and nutrients between trees, depending upon their needs.

“The big trees were subsidizing the young ones through the fungal networks. Without this helping hand, most of the seedlings wouldn’t make it.” – Suzanne Simard

Have you been listening to them? Do you intentionally seek them out in nature to speak and communicate with them? What if we intentionally made pilgrimage to them so as to add our blessings and our love? This is what many pagan religions did before the institution of  the major religions and the churches hijacked the natural world from people  to implement control. The cord was cut and anyone who did work with nature was called a witch, or devil worshipper. It was a major brainwashing scam and thankfully science is proving the ever connected planet we live on is truly ever so connected and people are now paying attention because unfortunately our culture now needs a scientist to validate what they believe. This will, however, add to the proof  that we are all one, proof that so many now need. So this is a good thing. We need to reconnect in whatever way we can and anything that helps that endeavor is a positive.

The Earth harmonics have been studied at length as well and people are now realizing that being outside in nature heals. It grounds and reestablishes our energy systems, balances our heart magnetism and gives us an over all feeling of well-being. Why? because we are a part of the system.

When we walk through the forest, we walk with intention. We step carefully and gracefully through the life around us. Careful to acknowledge the pristine cycles that are reflected back to us. If you want to know God you must know Gods creations. You must seek it out in everything around and within you. Touch the roots and lie down on them. Love….then breathe. Over and over until you feel the earths breath in return. There is a magic to this. A kind of infusion of self love that is bigger then you. You feel the life flowing through everything around you. This is power. This is love. This is truth. The natural world seeks evolution out naturally. It continues in whatever way it needs to. It’s defense systems are built in to protect life, not take it away. It seeks to continue as we all should. There are many profound lessons to be learned by observing the natural world and even more when we actively participate in it.

On Mothers Day, my sister and I made a pilgrimage to the Peace Pagota in Grafton, New York. We walked through the nature trail leading to the stupa. We made the walk an intentional walking meditation and listened and observed the forest around us. We were called to the standing rocks carefully balanced on one another, like all ecosystems depending on each other to be pristine and in optimum health. If one rock falls they all fall. Interdependence is vital for a healthy pristine planet. We found a mother tree, a larger tree surrounded by smaller ones. We walked up to it and made offerings to the larger roots coming out of the tree into the Earth around us. We poured water that had been blessed and harvested from a spring source. Symbolic and energetically representing the purity of heart. We placed our hands on the root and sent our love to it. We meditated for a short time with it and we could feel  the sap flowing through it, the buzz of a vibration that went deeply into the space around us. It was almost like linking into a sacred symphony of sorts. It was a beautiful experience. We were truly amazed and blessed by what we felt. It was a reciprocal and mutual love from the plant realm and our human selves. A testament to the truth of the scientific confirmation that is now breaching human awareness by way of the reports coming out of many prestigious places, including our own experience.

We visualized a healthy strong love traveling outward throughout the forest around us and when we felt complete with it as we continued onward up the path. We also put some love and intention into our own mother and asked for healing and prayers from the world around us to assist in the healing of our family and bloodline lineage, uniting the microcosm and the macrocosm. Up ahead we approached the grandmother tree. Her elegance and age obvious from our first site of her on the path.

Up a hill slightly from the mother tree, as we contemplated the Grandmother tree, we imagined and connected to the obvious downward flow of life as grandmothers nutrients would go out into the roots around her into the roots of others so all may live. As it is with the matriarchal lineage of our own families. The women give to the other women so that they may learn and be wise from the experience of the older women in their families. How dysfunctional our matriarchal lines within our blood families effects all. This big beautiful grandmother tree has been well honored as the ground around her base was well decorated with rock piles and moments of honoring. We tuned into her love and conjured the image our our own grandmother Miriam who had passed into the world of spirit last August. We both felt strongly Miriam was playing a strong role in our recent reunion as sisters and our continuing experiences since our time in the Cape and the solar eclipse. We found a root of the grandmother tree and did a water blessing as we did on the mother tree. We placed our hands on the grandmother root and connected to the older wiser more life experienced energy she offered in free and unrestrained efforts to all that was around her. There was a distinct difference between the two trees. We both validated this.

The healthier we are, the healthier the land is, and vice versa. The more we do ceremony on our lands, the more we reconnect with our blood family, the more we mediate with them, the stronger we are. The healing of family isn’t just about healing the relationship between the parents. It is about healing the relations between all blood relatives. When you meditate with your blood relatives the meditations are stronger. They are more stable. They go further. Not only in partnerships do we see this, but even more so within our own blood DNA related families. To align with them in intentional spiritual work, or out in nature, enhances the DNA resonance. It causes a louder, wider, more obvious ripple out into the ethers around us. This is why the native lineages kept such strong records of their ancestors and relations and sought to keep the family involved with Earth prayers and ceremonies. It is the same with all lineages. It is the same with all blood relations. No matter where you come from, who or what your lineage is. If families meditated together, if they came together in sacred reunion and held the space as holy and opened their hearts into that innocent fertile creative space it would amplify the diffracting and power. This is why the breakdown of the blood families has been so encouraged in the modern worlds. The heart of most families needs to be healed so the unit can evolve together. Back in the day when parents would have 10+ kids – imagine if all those brothers and sisters meditated out in nature and focused on love what that would offer all. There is something to be said about this. Trees get along and share openly without separation, judgement, drama, or indifference. These are human learned conditions that keep our world sick and unbalanced.

We have a choice. Love or fear.
It is the great fork in the road.
The great crossroads.
You have a decision to make now.
Which will you choose?

Of course no matter which we choose, all paths lead to the center of love anyway. We learn the necessary lessons we need and we return to all that is. We experience what needs to be experienced so our souls can know deeper the realms we incarnate in. We choose to be here now. We choose our family bloodlines. We come back and return as we choose. This is all necessary learning so we can continue with our larger purposes. Those grand alignments we make along the way. The synchronistic markers we leave ourselves so we will remember who we are at just the right time. No one can do this for you. You must recall it on your own. Others may offer reflections or mirrors, but ultimately it is you and your inner universe that must make the choice to believe. Otherwise it gets pushed to the side and you move on with the business of life. All to end up on holy ground anyway. There are no rights or wrongs in the reality of life, only continuing. Only evolution, only experience. We make choices that either feed our souls or hearts or otherwise. We integrate those experiences and ripen our wise through them. We have the choice to support others along the way, as the trees support each other no matter what. Or we can choose not too share our nutrients. Either way we end up on holy ground. The only war we have truly going on now is the belief that we can go against creation. This is a lie. No matter what your beliefs, love wins because love is life.

We find the holy temple when we let love in. The key is that love is in already anyway! To think we are cut off in anyway is an illusion, although life sometimes feels that way due to our circumstances. To feel and flow within our life happenings is part of that root system of humans. We think and feel always a steady stream of energy out into the world around us and we interact knowingly or not. We do not have to be aware of our breathing to breathe. We do it anyway. This is the great construction of the natural world. We offer our breath even when we are not noticing. We produce the carbon dioxide needed for the trees to breathe. They in turn produce our oxygen. We are intimately connected. Needed and respected as a part of the whole. It is only us that sees ourselves as detrimental. The planet does not pout in the corner or rage as we do. She simply rebalances and continues on. Her systems work. They reorganize when needed. Sure we effect her by our selfish and immature beliefs that create our realities and perception of truth, but even so she carries on. And us along with her as we spin in the cosmos connected to even greater sentient beings and systems our minds are just beginning to understand.

The truth is we are one connected universe. Everything we do matters, and yet life continues anyway. We can consciously connect and nurture and be an active part of this life creational force around us or we can gripe and complain and look round and hate. Either way we are on holy ground right were we stand. And we have a choice to appreciate it or not.

We enter into the holy of holies by way of our ability to center in our hearts, connect with the Earth around us, to free our minds of self judgement and judgement of others, to escape from indoctrination of how life ‘should’ be, or ‘shouldn’t” be and we grow and expand outward as we do inward so we can see the mirror of the natural world all around us as well as within us. We take nothing for granted and we embrace the energies that present themselves to us and we seek to learn the wisdom from them so we can pass down our life experience to our descendants as trees pass on their nutrients when they die to the younger generations growing up around them. We connect and meditate and go into sacred space with our blood relatives and we accept our holy missions together, we see the generational rifts that need healing, and we heal. We appreciate who we are to each other, and honor the other as a sacred mirror to where we are at during any given point in time. We release our need to control and know everything and we empty our chalice. We seek humbly our power and proclaim not how powerful we are! to the world, but we step softly on the Earth in honor of the power of creation because we know our power and have no need to publicly declare it otherwise. We never extinguish another life, or harm another persons spirit, out of our own inability to love. If we find our minds and hearts aligned with hate, we seek refuge in nature to rebalance and listen to our  truth as one, until the storm passes.

We protect what we love.

We honor what we love.

We nurture what we love.

On May 18th, 1pm all time zones we go into an intentional meditative state to connect with Earth and our hearts. We tune the dial into the Earth frequency and we feel what is there. We keep going until we do and then we allow our bodies to register this feeling. So we can remember what is. We love… then breathe the breath of love energy out into all that is connected to and thru us. This is a starting point into the dimensional fields of creation that nature harnesses and offers everywhere.

We gather as one or two or many and we link up into that creational meditative state of consciousness  that defies all separation and cultural definitions. We link up thru our hearts and nature assists by way of what already is. We gather at places on the planet that help to amplify this such as mounds, obelisks, ancient white horses on the hill, we walk the medicine wheel in honor of all life, and we create a living breathing grid of higher consciousness around the planet. This is how we support each other as one. This is how we support all systems vital to our continuance.

We do this together as one species, like the Aspen, often, and individually as well. We link up on special dates/days with increased biodynamic support from nature and we learn once again how to live authentic lives. We recreate the human village and start supporting life.
