A very large ancient Matriarch tree (silver maple) was cut today in my neighborhood. It was healthy but too close to a carriage house and the owners finally decided it needed to go.
I had no idea this tree and another one on the same property were slated to be cut. All I knew was that I was spiritually called to walk to that part of the neighborhood early this morning, a walk I never do at that time of the day. When I discovered the tree company trucks and realized what was about to take place, I knew I needed to honor and bless both trees, with the permission of the owner who was kinda open to me. I essentially talked with them and loved them up. They both knew full well what was about to happen.
I even tried to convince the owner to only take the one large limb from the Matriarch tree that was hanging over the deck of the carriage house. But the decision was already made for a complete death.
The Matriarch tree asked me to do Sacred Fire ceremony tonight to truly honor the two trees. I promised I would.
For an Earth empath like me, and plant communicator, the grief in my neighborhood was palpable as the day transpired. The other trees were grieving and quivering with fright that they would be next. I could feel their fear. I was grieving from the cutting of this huge Matriarch tree, and trying not to empathically absorb the fear of the tree community around where I live.
It was hard for me all day to be focused and upbeat, in truth. I kept on trying to stave off the sadness and fear permeating the air.
I did do the Fire Ceremony this evening to honor the trees. It’s important to keep one’s word even with trees. Maybe especially with trees and other beings in the nature realms. I needed to do this and send prayers to the trees of the world with all that they have lost, so heartlessly.
The Matriarch tree and the other one were honored in a good way. It was a healing ceremony around the Fire.
I have a Message from the Tree kingdom to share though. (Not from Mother, everything is talking with me these days.) They are asking that we send them more gratitude. For too long, they have been harvested, cut with no awareness of their consciousness and never a thank you from pretty much all other than the rare few.
They are asking for us to reach out them and express our gratitude. It could be a forest you drive by. A tree in the parking lot. In your yard. Across from your office. Any tree or forest or grove you see. Just send them love and gratitude from your heart. It’s really so easy.
The energy behind a sincerely felt thank you, from your heart is more powerful than most know.
And if you can save a tree or grove or forest from being cut, even better. Or plant a new baby tree to replace one that has been cut that could not be prevented, that’s super beautiful. Especially if you plant it with Love and Kindness and tend to it to ensure it survives.
Thank you to all of you who will read this and share it.
