The trees are calling for you

Dear clients and fellow nature lovers,

Those of us who have experienced and been deeply nourished by the trees and forests in our lives, may share my experiences of helplessness and despair when realizing that our natural wild spaces have been systematically destroyed for fleeting monetary profit just in our lifetimes. The act of replanting rows of financially profitable species of fast growing trees with the goal of “harvesting them” does nothing to correct the error of disturbing centuries old forest communities. These elder forests do so much we still don’t understand, but some of what we do know shows them sequestering carbon and harboring multitudes of beings, including undiscovered and rare or possibly lost species. The medicines contained therein are incalculable.

If you need a more greedy perspective, there are many discovered and many more undiscovered human and animal medical cures in the plants and trees of the forest that heal and cure and prevent diseases. These could realistically save your and your loved ones lives one day, if they haven’t already. Also, because of the amount of carbon they sequester, they are vital to help insulate us against the catastrophic weather events that may continue to occur more frequently than in the past. Most of us feel deep in our hearts the inherent value of respecting and protecting the trees of the Earth.

Any of you who grew up, as I did, climbing trees and sitting for hours in their strong protective branches, who watched forest creatures become increasingly comfortable with us as we sat in their worlds, will know the truth of this and want to do everything we can to keep mature and old growth forests in all of our environments. These are vital to all Life.

Now is your chance to do something that will make a difference for both forest and human communities for generations to come- for we are inextricably linked and bound.

Hopefully, this is one step on a path of ever increasing human awareness and respect for our small but vital part in the web of Life. If we want to survive as a species on this gem of a blue green planet, we have to act as a people who are willing to cooperate with each other to protect and expand mature and old growth forest ecosystems.

Here is a link for ways to help reverse a logging contract into our pristine lungs, the forest ecosystems along the US – Canadian border- some of our last remaining mature forest communities.

In the last few months, I’ve had time to realize the huge difference that subtle energetic shifts can make. It’s sometimes hard to realize that you’ve been pushing yourself too hard in some areas, and starving yourself in other parts, at the same time.
Here are some suggestions to develop (or continue to develop) habits of checking in with various aspects of who-you-are, all of you, your full life, daily. It’s kind of like taking a very close look at a bug you may never have thought to look at closely before…

If you are an intellectually minded person, see if your thoughts and intellect have been dominating every other part, or are your thoughts and logic working in harmony with what your physical, emotional and spiritual needs are? 
If you feel more identified and ruled by your physical needs, has your emotional or spiritual health suffered as a result of a dominance of focus on the body? Is your physical body in balance, or is it constantly being pushed to perform longer harder and faster?
Has your emotional self, such as fears, depression, or even joy and pleasure, been ruling your life to the detriment of your health?
Hopefully you have find a happy balance, where your emotions inform your intellect and help direct care for your physical needs and direct you where to find the ways to replenish your unique spiritual wellspring.

We live in a world that values external experiences, possessions and situations above most else. How often do we check and adjust to what our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies are asking for? Remember too, the other important Beings in your world, to check in and listen to our animal companions’ silent and not-so-silent communications, or the way that the plants that grow in our backyards reach out to inform us of wisdom they have acquired, as the evolutionary elders to the human race. Plants have provided some of the most fun and wise and loving conversations I’ve ever had!


I can pretty much guarantee that as you start and continue to develop this habit, you will make startling and profound realizations about your own health and well-being, along with that of the planet and all her creatures. This will benefit everyone around you, the world at large, and your animal friends.

Be well everyone, and if you’re not, please adjust accordingly and get “well” asap, whatever that means for you.

Wishing  you all the Grand Peace of Nature, the kind that overtakes you and becomes an experience of sacredness that is unsurpassed anywhere.
