I went out feather hunting earlier today for a daily “challenge” I am running on the First Wave Blue Ray Indigo FB page, aimed at spreading Love and Joy. It was an awesome experience I’d like to share:
I decided to go talk to a tree that has been calling to me when I walk the dogs. It’s a Morton Bay Fig, a youngster, probably just a couple of hundred years old. It grows in a park, close to the Bay and overlooking the water. It’s at the ‘quiet end’ of town and it’s a good place for feather hunting!
I recently read an article that someone wrote about how to talk to trees. It mentioned that we should always ask permission to sit near or under a tree. After all, if they don’t want to talk, they can’t just get up and walk away! I’ve always done this, it just feels the right thing to do. So today I approached the tree with respect and asked for permission to sit, which was readily given.
Although I have an ‘Agreement’ with Mother Earth about biting creatures, I checked the area for ant nests, found a place and settled down with my back to the trunk where it joined one of the buttress roots and introduced myself and immediately fell into a light meditative state.
I was able to talk quite easily with this tree, I told him my name is Sue, and almost straight away I had a Knowing of his name: WaterWatcher.
Morton Bay Figs are actually monoecious, meaning they have both male and female flowers, but he feels like a “him” so to me that’s what he is! We chatted about people, birds, roots, his canopy. I talked through him to Mother Gaia (I have a very deep connection from my Initial Awakening) and re-confirmed my connection. I received healing and feel very much at Peace. And almost pain free!
I didn’t stay long, this was our first chat and I didn’t want to be rude and overstay my welcome. I suspect that it is not easy chatting to short-lived humans! When I stood up, I found, clearly visible in the leaf litter by my feet, a small chip of quartz crystal. I hadn’t noticed it when I scanned for ant nests, or whilst I was sitting meditating/chatting – but there it was in plain sight ……
How very blessed I feel right now. Another tree freely giving me his name, a gift of Quartz and yes…..three feathers.
