The web of life that has existed since before the Earth whirled into being has been weakened by human wars, torn by pollution, worn thin by widespread human anxiety, and broken in places by acts of violence.
We rooted and wild creatures are at the mercy of human behavior, the sometimes out of control egos, the mindless lashing out at others, the hurt flung out at random into the world, thinking that will make things better, but only adding to the garbage pile of ugliness that hurts all beings by damaging the precious web of life on which we all depend.
To renew our priceless web, we must work in harmony and peace with all beings, co-existing with our Earthly neighbors to heal ancestral wounds and resentments that keep us stuck, to face and reweave the patterns that cause resentment, war, greed, and violence.
I feel hopeful that we natives of planet Earth, humans, plants, one-celled beings, animals, insects, fish, arachnids, birds, all together can reweave the amazing web of life that sustains us here on our blue-green planet. Every living being including every human being who is able must step up and do our part.
Dear humans, I ask you to clean up your act now as we begin this necessary work of planetary healing. Bring in leaders at all levels who have a heart instead of a vast emptiness at their center that can never be filled.
Instead of leaders with inflated egos and mean spirits, choose those who set the example of compassion, human understanding, those who know that true power comes from within, from connection and common ground, not from a nuclear weapon. Let these compassionate and courageous new leaders inspire you!
The web still holds strong, even with the damaged and weakened places, for the power of love and connection and peace are stronger and more resilient than fear and pettiness and hate and war.
In freeing and healing yourself from unhealthy relationships, patterns, beliefs, and situations, you free others. In the web of life, all things, all beings are connected.
In this way miracles happen, coincidences occur beyond your awareness, without your conscious participation.
Set your course for health of mind body and spirit, then trust and allow the mystery to unfold for your highest good and the good of all beings.
Set your healing intention into motion, follow the instructions of compassionate helping spirit guides and helpers, and ask for more guidance.
Ask for spiritual guidance. Pay attention!!! Listen and act with integrity. This is all you have to do.
(True spiritual advice will never hint at or ask you to hurt yourself or another, will never ask you to curse anyone, will never advocate hatred or violence.)
When you are compelled to heal and free yourself from unhealthy situations and patterns, you are regaining your power, autonomy, life force, and vitality.
When you free yourself you unlock what may be many lifetime of enchantment. Then like Sleeping Beauty, you wake up the potential and renew the life energy that has been dormant in you
When you do the sometimes lonely and often difficult work of healing by moving closer and closer to your own pure spirit, your own soul, healing your wounded heart and psyche, reweaving the hurt, making yourself whole again, you send ripples of well being and freedom throughout the web of all things, making those broken places stronger and more resilient. Creating wholeness.
Through you, others are set free as well if it is their soul level wish. You cannot control the ripples of the web, you cannot control who receives healing. These assignments must remain a mystery to you while you are still in a body. You can only work on behalf of yourself and do what is right for you.
So much is beyond your knowing and control as a human being in a body. Surrender to the mystery!
Our ancestors became acclimated to a cooler world. The capacity to survive within those parameters has been passed down through thousands of generations of all animals, plants, humans birds, insects, sea creatures from the blue whale to tiny one celled organisms from desert sage to all manner of mushrooms, to towering cottonwood trees.
All of us live and thrive here on our home planet within a limited range of conditions.
We are slowly being pushed out of our comfort zone. Our home is becoming a stranger to us.
The seasonal changes become erratic, the timing is off. Trees maintain their leaves later in the year, and become vulnerable to ice and freezing rain. The weight of thick ice on thousands of leaves and branches can topple and crush a huge tree.
You might be comfortable in climate controlled buildings or cars. You might not get outside much or tune yourself closely to nature’s subtle rhythms and harmonies, so you might not know with the evidence of your own senses that our world is shifting out of balance.
I speak for the great web of life. I speak for the rooted ones, the four legged fur bearers, those with wings, the six and eight legged communities, all living creatures that form our web of life with intricate interconnections and relationships.
We are all in this together! We need
each other to survive!
Dear humans, please find a way to work together, heal your animosities, your grudges and resentments. Release your emotional baggage in healthy ways, heal once and for all your ancestral enmities.
Clear yourselves so you can be at your full light and power, at the highest vibrations you are capable of. You are needed here and now to heal this Earth and bring our home back into harmony and balance between all beings…
…between hot and cold, day and night, summer and winter, give and take, life and death, resistance and flow, fear and love.
My bark may feel cold and rough to you this winter’s day. Do not let this fool you, for my heart is warm and welcoming!
I may seem silent, separate, apart. Do not be fooled, for in my own way I am fully engaged in the web of life on this planet!
I may seem irrelevant to your human world, your worries, concerns, and solutions to your problems. Do not be fooled, for my energy interweaves in intricate patterns with that of all living things including humans. We are in this together!
My quiet existence matters in the web of life. My existence creates a ripple and a powerful filament of love in the tapestry of the universe. I belong here!
I want you to know each thought, word and feeling of yours has energetic reality that affects the web of life, just as my tree energy does. You make a difference ! You matter and you belong here!
You don’t have to move mountains or bring peace to the Middle East. Simply tune your thoughts and feelings gradually to happiness and joy and kindness and laughter a little more often.
Turn off those news programs and avoid those people that manipulate you into anger and fear. Guide your time and energy to uplifting, soul satisfying activities, thoughts, words, beliefs, friends, and entertainment.
In this way you will affect the web of life for good! You are a creator whether you know it or not!
Take your job seriously! You and I, along with all living beings on earth reweave the web of life with each thought, feeling, and action.
Billions of roots hold the soil. The multitude of grasses, the flowering beauties that return year after year, those rooted organisms you call weeds, the magnificent trees of our beloved planet all anchor our soil, forming a vast web of interconnection…Call it love!
Honeysuckle and ash tree
The web of roots anchoring this abundant life mirrors the energetic web of all things, invisible to most, yet permeating and connecting all things in exquisite perfection. No word or thought or feeling of any human can be separated from this web. They are the stuff of the web.
The energetic vibrations of your feelings, thoughts and words announce you and create an energy pattern, unique to you. Others might not see this, but they can feel and sense it.
Your energies and vibrations join with those of others and yet others, and still more, creating intricate patterns and possibilities one alone could not dream of.
Just as the mighty roots of a cottonwood intertwine and interweave with the roots of other trees, grasses, weeds, and wildflowers, so do your thoughts and words interweave with the feelings, thoughts, and words of others. In this way, you are all connected at the energetic level… Some call it spirit.
We are in this life on earth together! All life forms are inseparable – from the mosses under your feet to to the magnificent trees that encircle this earth with their roots and branches, to the winged creatures, the scaly and furry ones.
No matter how you try to weed, separate, segregate, put distance between, incarcerate, deport, wall off, ignore, eradicate; we are all one in the web of creation and cannot ever be separated.
Do you feel that you stand alone? Perhaps it feels safer to be on one side of a wall or border while “they” are on the other side. Perhaps you with the weed killer spray bottle in your hand feel that certain life forms are not acceptable and must be eliminated.
Do you not know and feel your energies overlap and intermingle with all other living beings, interweaving and creating new patterns? This is the essence of the web of all things, the energy of which we are made expanding from our physical centers becoming finer and finer the further from the body, beyond our capacity to see and sense.

You choose!You can create thoughts and take actions which strengthen this magnificent web every living creature participates in, every atom of soil, every blade of grass, every tree, every insect, every drop of water, every reptile, every human being. In strengthening the web, you strengthen yourself!
You can also choose actions and thoughts and ideas that weaken the web of all things with doubt, fear, the illusion of powerlessness, the illusion of separateness. But remember this: In weakening our shared existence you weaken yourself, for all things are one in this universe.
Separation from others, from nature is not possible. You have never been, nor will ever be separate from any other thing.
I ask you to choose life and know your connection to all creation.
