Trees, and why they’re so excited these days
I like to go to places where they still have enormous old trees. If you’re in a wooded area you can usually identify the patriarch tree, the one whose turn it is to be in charge. They’re the oldest and wisest in their area of influence, and they can be of any type of tree. Sometimes when I go up to them for a friendly chat they’re too sleepy (if it’s winter), or distracted. One lovely old tree just said flat out he didn’t care if he spoke to me or not because there were children playing nearby, and he was absorbed in their play and laughter. They came first with him.
This year instead of hearing them in English I’ve been hearing a constant stream of rumble sounds that sound like roots talking, or like the language of the Ents in the Lord of the Rings. The trees seem to vibrate their messages to each other down into the ground, to be picked up as vibrations by the roots of the other trees. I wonder if Tolkien heard the trees speak in that way? But the main impression was one of suppressed excitement. Focusing back into English I asked them to show me what they were all so excited about this spring. One old pine was able to put it into pictures and words; a picture of light rising from the Earth up through the roots of the trees into the trunks and boughs. He called it the rebirth of the trees.
This picture of light rising from the centre of the Earth outwards, a bit like a star, was one I saw again yesterday when I was shown it by my angelic guides. One of the symptoms of ill-health for the planet was that she no longer had any shine, and was covered in darkness. This picture of her shining and burning through the dark covering was associated with the energy of the year 2012. Earlier this year I kept getting the feeling that this main event was being moved forward for the Earth, into 2011. When I asked the old pine when the rebirth of the trees would take place he said there was only one more winter until the first real spring we had had in millennia.
