This is such a lovely and wonderful group! I feel like I have "come home" at long last ... I wish to share this tree article I wrote a number of years ago. It tells a little bit about my own awakening and the roles the Trees had to play ... the Tremendous Talking Trees ...
I had always considered myself a pretty "average" person. Average height and weight; average intelligence. All I ever really wanted in life was to earn an honest and decent living – to be able to take care of my family and friends. I never really considered myself "spiritual" either – but that was about to change. About six years ago I fell down the proverbial rabbit hole – it was on the day that I first "heard" the Trees speaking to me … .
My beloved mother had died of breast cancer several years prior. I had been devastated. There seemed to be no end to my grief. The pain was almost unbearable. Just when I thought I was over it, it all began anew. I was recovering from major knee surgery. I lived alone – well, just me and my cat. I had a lot of time on my hands and would just sit quietly on my couch waiting to heal. I really missed Mom. It had been almost nine years since she had passed away, but it felt just like yesterday. I began to "hear" her voice in my mind; to "feel" her presence. She told me that she loved me; that she was all right. I thought I needed therapy.
As I sat alone and stared out my window, I thought to myself that I must be crazy. Who would believe me that I was hearing ghosts? "We believe you", said the very large pine tree who stood right outside my sliding glass door. At first I was confused? Who’s speaking to me? Who’s there? Silence. No reply.
I bean to sob uncontrollably. I feared I had finally lost it. Lost control. Lost myself. "We are here for you. We love you as well," comforted the Mighty Pine Tree. I gazed in awe at the tree. "It’s you! YOU are talking to me, Mr. Tree?" I don’t know how I knew but he smiled at me. He answered very simply, "Yes. You can hear me now as well."
I admit that I had some real difficulty trying to integrate these experiences. Hearing "spirits" I could almost handle, but plants? Now, don’t misunderstand me. I had always enjoyed the trees and plants. However, I was in no way a strong "nature advocate", either. I couldn’t deny what was happening, though. Well, I tried to deny it – to ignore it, but day after day, my new Friend would send me his loving thoughts and energy.
I asked him if he had a name. I didn’t receive any clear answer so I named him. Johannes seemed like a good choice. After I had fully recovered from my surgery I spent some time outside with Johannes and two other tall pines that were right next to him. The other two trees started to "speak" to me as well. I named them Susanne and Alfred respectively. Don’t know why – one seemed more "feminine" and one more "masculine."
As I was taking out the trash one sunny day, I made a few more new friends. Again, they were large pine trees. These trees stood out back behind my condo. They chose a different topic of conversation, though. "We know who you are," they stated very simply to me. I stopped in my tracks. "You are Amoran," they prodded further. I was shocked. I thought my Mom had been telling me the same name – Amoran. She seemed to say that was my true name – my Spirit Name. My Soul Name. Not Frank – Amoran. Wanting to seize the moment, I asked the trees, "How do you know that name?" No answer. I decided upon a different approach. "What is my connection to you?" This seemed to strike a chord with them. They replied, "There are many." I could quickly tell that somehow the specific questions were just as important as the specific answers. Not every question evoked an answer – or, maybe I just couldn’t understand all of the replies. We were somehow learning – or, maybe remembering, how to best communicate telepathically with each other.
Hoping to keep the momentum of the conversation going, I asked for confirmation: "You stated that there are many connections between us?" Their answer was simply, "Yes." Becoming a little bit impatient, I asked again, "Well, what are these connections, then?" The answer a second time: "There are many." Changing tactics a little, I re-asked, "Well, then let us begin with just one – what is one connection we have?"
Finally, a meaningful response: "You are one who cares about us." I was more than a little surprised at this answer. I admitted to them that I had always liked the trees and plants but that I had done little in this life on their behalf. At some deep, deep level, though, what they said to me sounded familiar. Before I realized it, I was again prodding for more information. "Why now? Why are you telling me this now?" They were not nearly as flustered as I was. Their response was kind, gentle and even in tone: "It is time. It is time for you to remember."
As the weeks and months passed, I became more adept at my communication with my New Friends. More and more trees began making connections. Oaks, maples, birches, apple trees – I began to hear them all. Then smaller plants chimed in with their own voices as well. Even the flowers decided to join the chorus. Since that day six years ago, I have met many other people who also feel, or sense, a very strong connection to nature – and to the trees and plants specifically. There is no doubt in my mind that the Trees and Plants are all aware, intelligent and sentient beings – creatures with emotions, thoughts, and souls just like you and me. Not long ago they gave me a message that I think is appropriate to pass along here. The conversation went like this:
During my drive home from a very difficult day at work, I remarked to the Trees, "If only mankind were more like the trees - so honest, honorable and respectful." During a sudden flash of intuition, I then lovingly challenged my Friends, the Trees, with the following question: "What would you have done differently, or what would you like to change as it relates to your position vis-à-vis mankind? Give me the three most important things."
It didn't take them long to respond, and, although I had told them they could think about it overnight, they had given me the following three things before I completed my drive home:
I found their answers not at all surprising, but very wise and telling, indeed. Their bottom line appears to be that they would love to see their relative position to mankind change in these three areas - established, intelligent communication with humans; a more even, fair and two way relationship with more influence into the decisions that impact the evolution of this world.
During my drive to work the following morning, I pressed them a little bit more on "specifics" vs. just "theoretical":
What type of communication? When? With whom? Everyone or just select individuals? Which select individuals? What type of relationship did they envision? How would it be created, maintained, nurtured? How much influence? Equal influence?
They seemed to understand where I was going with all of this and they politely answered: "Difficult questions, indeed!"
Yes, difficult questions with equally difficult answers. It’s a start, though. A very important beginning. Indeed. Maybe it’s just what we need.
Tree Blessings to All,
M:)) This Was Taken At Manahoac On The Rapahanock Where I Heal Myself And Find Balance. Before I Took This Picture I Asked The Creator And The Spirits There To Show Themselves In My Photograph. All The Lights Including The Bright Green One Are Living Around The Plants, Rocks And Tree Beings. Thank You Amoran For Calling Them Sentient Beings. I Told Them I Would Share This With All Of You. Thank You For Being. Blessings Of Love, Light And Peace To All Of You. :))
Awsome pic, Gary - I am reminded of SACRED GEOMETRY. As it penetrates the world we inhabit, CREATION is made possible. All it takes is a CONSCIOUSNESS which receives these Sacred Patterns of LIGHT an is able to channel them into Sacred CREATION!
I see an entirely other picture right BEHIND this picture ... Lush GREEN, birds and butterflies, tall trees and astounding colours from flowers unseen and unheard of as of yet ... and it is RIGHT there already!
The green light in the picture, to me, signifies this beginning ... as described in my previous broadcast messages
Now is the time that we re-align to our Divine Creative Potential - on behalf of Mother Earth and all Her Beings - for the HIGHEST possbile outcome for ALL Life concerned!
