I welcome all who wish to rest here under my spreading canopy. I invite you to renew your spirit here, leaning against my trunk.
Message from Grandmother Cottonwood
Let me take your weight as you lean on me. Let your body and soul relax. Allow your batteries to recharge with my energy. I am a safe place for you to let go of stress, to tap into the energy of earth and sky.
Do others think you’re crazy when you hug a tree?
You know what they do not – It just feels good to hug a tree! You are sensitive enough to feel and know the peaceful loving tree energy that flows from heaven to earth.

I am here for you – an anchor, refuge, healer, a solid peaceful presence, loving and kind.
Come rest with me, come lean on me.
If you came here in a human body, you have made mistakes. That is part of the human program. Forgive yourself!

If you need a new direction in life, allow yourself to slow down and turn toward the life path and choices that light you up, that fill you with inspiration, that satisfy your soul.
Reweave your web!
Let your spirit guide you. Know that spirit guides you through your feelings. If something or someone lights you up, move in that direction. If you feel depleted, exhausted, and down every day, reconsider what you are doing and who you are with.
Bless your mistakes for they have shown when you have veered off course from your true desires
Bless your mistakes for they have given you a reason to start fresh.
Bless your mistakes for they will help you clarify what is important and what is not important to you.
Bless the light and dark of you, the “right and wrong” of you, the parts of you that you hide and those you show. Bless your weaknesses and strengths, your rest (do you call it laziness?) and activity your body and spirit, for all things are one within this vast and infinite universe.
Your heart knows your oneness, your connection to all things, your potential. So, do not judge yourself for being human. Allow your mistakes and missteps to guide you to the life you desire!
If your spirit is heartsick and your heart is grieving, all the objects, money, luxury, and comfort in your life will be like dust to you. People and activities that were once interesting may seem petty and trivial.
Remember, dear ones, the human heart and spirit can be renewed and made whole again. A torn, threadbare, and dusty tapestry can be carefully rewoven, mended, and cleaned.
Your disrupted energy can be balanced and cleared of dark clouds. When your energy is in harmony, your spirit is fulfilled, and your heart is satisfied, you set the tone for true engagement and full participation in life.
No matter what you are feeling, your spirit possesses the knowledge at some level that wholeness is possible for you, that you are worthy of joy, clarity, and good health.
When you are ready to make this wholeness manifest in your life, ask the universe to support your healing journey. Be open to the guidance you receive, and act on it.
