What is it about the trees?
It seems society today takes trees for granted, and we have lost our connection and understanding of these ancient beings. The worst thing however seems to be the lack of respect for all of nature, not only the trees. We would like to help awaken and encourage society to enter into a loving relationship with the trees, based on mutual respect. The trees have so much to give us, and in ways we have totally forgotten. I we open our hearts to the trees, and start approaching them with compassion, magical things will happen. It becomes a cycle of giving and receiving. In the current state that the earth is at, we have all to win, we firmly believe that by letting the trees become a part of our lives, let them communicate to us and through us, life on earth will change for the better.
Deep roots in our consciousness
In the ancient Celtic culture, it was well established that the sacred knowledge was associated with the trees, and the seers and wise of the tribe would always seek the trees for guidance. In the times of ancient Ireland, the Celt’s belief-system was firmly linked with the trees, that was where they found their sacred knowledge, and they would also connect to the trees for becoming one and gaining mystic insights. The sacred groves were indeed sacred, and worship in the old days was often outside between the trees of the sacred grove.
The tree of life
Across the world, you will find the same, an idea of the world tree, or the tree of life, the cosmic tree. With the branches of its crown, it reaches and stretches towards the sky, our father sky, eager to connect with the heavenly spheres. It also stretches and reaches down with strong roots, deep into the earth, our mother earth, for nutrition and nurturing. The tree’s trunk is sort of like a human heart, right between crown and root, in the middle, connecting the two. The crown and the root also refer to our human chakra system, as the crown and root chakra. How fitting to give the chakras names after the tree!
The tree of life, with its branches and
In past times trees often symbolised wisdom, justice, creation, and protection. Sacred groves of trees were honoured around the world by Celtic, Germanic, Australian, Indian, Native American, and other cultures. A Scandinavian tradition that predated the Vikings saw the planting of a guardian tree, or “tuntre,” — with roots from a sacred grove — at a central location on family farms.
Ancient and benevolent beings
The ancients lived in a deep understanding and balance with nature, and the season would always be a strong influence in their spiritual and mystical understanding of life. The trees came to
The powerful seed
But in a less obvious way, that takes up to hundreds of years to complete, is the journey of a seed falling from the tree, and then beginning its journey to root itself and stand among the other trees. This journey is slow and less apparent to a human, as the trees generally speaking can live hundreds of years. They stand as silent witnesses, and their wisdom anchors deeply in the trees’ consciousness. They are our past, our present, and our future, and
Support the trees
Hilde and John seek to bring exactly this empowering feeling of the purest, divine love for all of nature and it’s healing frequency. In this way they hope to empower anyone that feels drawn to this same frequency of love, and who is hearing the call, feeling its truth. At the same time of course acknowledging the trees, and their unconditional love, wisdom, protection, and support, they both vow to always integrate the trees and nature in all their interactions. It is a natural and easy part of their lives together. They support different
