A tree has a major role in nature. It can break the winds and prevent soil erosion. A tree reduces CO2 by directly removing carbon from air. A healthy tree can reduce airborne dust particles thus is considered a purifier. One large tree can provide a day's oxygen for up to four people. Trees don't die of old age, they die of environmental stress. Insects, disease, poisoning the soil, vandalism and construction damage are a few of stresses imposed upon them.
There is no known way to reverse the dieing process.
Trees have a partnership with the basic elemental tools - earth, air, fire and water. Trees need rain water to penetrate the earth and feeds the roots. The tree absorbs the sun and rain that feeds the soil to create a structure solid in physical form. The leaf is one of the chief vegetative organs of a plant, leaves are the ultimate basis of most animal life.
The ancient Celts had a strong affinity with trees. Trees are thought of as beings with ranks of spirits and nobility.
The Druids were the ancient Celtic priesthood of Gaul, Britain, and Ireland. The Celts had a similar organization for women. Although Dryad is described in the Merriam- Webster dictionary as a wood nymph, a Dryad is the correct term regarding a female shamans of the period.
Historical writings suggest Dryads lived in sacred groves and were part of the very old goddess religions. The wise women attempted to seek harmony with visible, invisible and to understand the forces that rule the cosmos.
Druids and Dryads did not stage a challenge to endanger human, animal or plant life, but improve the quality of their existence.
Trees are haunts of witches.
You need not be a witch - that's just me. Every person has magical powers. People of every walk of life are capable and naturally able to tap into streams of invisible energy that permeate the world. We are all comprised of energy. Energy is everywhere. Many live their lives without being aware of their abilities.
The next few blogs I would like to share some of my activities involving Oracle Trees to remove mental blocks, outdated thought patterns-people and behaviours or to clear the every day madness from the mind.
