Love the Trees

Longwood Trees Sign 12.14.13

I was so inspired by this sign on a recent trip to the magnificent Longwood Gardens with my brother, a fellow nature-lover. Trees are very dear to me and I view them as our ancestors – filled with wisdom and so many earth stories. I give them my respect and love.

Eye-and-eye mantra: Be the woman you want to be at all times.

  1. I have always loved tress as well. My grandparents had a giant oak tree in the front yard that always scared the hell outta me. The tree had a spirit in it or around it. Pine trees have always been in the background of my life, and I feel like they are part of me.

    I would mediate in my front yard, and the wind would sometimes blow through the leaves. I got the message that God spoke when the leave rustled. So whenever I hear the wind blowing through the leaves in the trees to me it’s God speaking or as I now refer to him–The Most High.

    1. Wow, that is just so beautiful. When I see the wind rustling through the trees, I feel like the trees are waving at me. And I feel that all of the wonderful, encouraging thoughts coming into my head are eminating from the trees around me. I like to tune in to their wisdom and feel their love. I think we have similar experiences with the lovely trees! Thank you my friend.
