We (nature and tree spirits) are the observers. We observe by sensing your energy without judgment. We feel when you are anxious, when you are sad or grieving. We feel your joy, your buoyancy, and delight. We also feel your fear.
Heavy clouds in late summer
When many of you feel and tap into a widespread fear vibration, it chokes off your connection to the earth energy and heavenly light energy that sustains life. It affects all living things around you; it hurts you.
Collective fear damages the web of all things. It creates an ugly rift in the beautiful patterns that are meant to be. It can hollow you out.
Get to know your personal fear. Does it come from outside or inside of you? Where do you feel it in your body? What sensations are created in your body?
Have others planted this fear in you for their own agenda? Does it resonate with your existing worries and those of your family? Do your thoughts and beliefs support this fear? Are they true? Examine them!
Slowly begin to shift to more loving peaceful thoughts and beliefs, more supportive of the harmonious life you wish to live. Find the tiniest threads each day of gratitude, of satisfaction, of contentment and follow them back to the calm at your center.
As you shift from fear to peace you reweave the web of all things. Those around you will feel the shift to a more peaceful vibration as well.
Dearest ones, with this voice I desire to convince you to heal yourselves from the inside out; to do the excavation, the clearing of blocked feelings, the forgiving of those who have harmed you so you can find and know clarity, peace, and connection with the web of life.
It is not necessary to hold on to hurt or the energy of painful emotions – to become a living stone.
Feelings are vibrations – frequencies of energy that emanate from you and influence all living things near you. It is no small thing when you begin to heal yourself, for in doing so the web in which we are all connected and intertwined is made stronger, more vibrant, more beautiful like a rich fabric of many exquisite colors and patterns.
Every particle in the universe senses your vibrations. You matter! How you feel matters! As you heal, as you feel better, everything around you – all living beings respond to your new found clarity and elevated mood. Give yourself and the earth the gifts of forgiveness, inner peace and clarity!
Your body is not a stone. It is an amazing system made of energy. Energy is meant to move, to shift and evolve.
When you decide to allow the flow, you will feel the difference after the energy begins to move and emotions have been transmuted and released. You will no longer feel like a silent and heavy stone. You may feel like dancing!
Jack in the pulpit
We (GCW and Betty) rededicate ourselves to bringing forth messages of nature’s wisdom and loving words of spiritual healing to those who are ready for them. Grandmother Cottonwood authors and transmits the feelings, impressions, images, and information. Betty receives the information and puts it into a form others of her kind can understand.
GCW speaks: My dears, this is first and foremost about love, the framework, the foundation of all that is. I wish to communicate to you the vast incalculable web of love that is woven around and throughout all existence. You are each and every one an integral part of this web. There is no separation, no complete severing of any particle in the universe.
The only separation, if you experience it, exists in your mind and heart. If you think you are separate, if you feel that you have been cast into infinite darkness, you are living in illusion – in your head.
My desire is for you to know the oneness of all things for then you will begin to care for each other with love, not obligation. You will care for the earth with appreciation and partnership, not dominance and destruction. You will care for yourselves with heart expanding joy, and in the joy and appreciation and love you will be made whole and all that surrounds you healed.
When you are love, the reflection you see in the mirror is love. If your reflection is less than love, seek to release the illusions you have taken as beliefs. These beliefs may seem true, but they harm you and do not serve you.
Wake up to the love at your center! Live it!
This new season of growth, exuberance, of reaching for the sunlight mirrors the life within you. After a time of rest you are once again ready to create, to live life fully, to turn your face to the sun and allow the perfect unfolding of your being to take place. If you think you, your brain, or your logical thinking are in control, think again!
The mysteries of the heart and the great depths of you that lie beyond all reason and control send forth this growth. These creative forces are set into motion long before your birth.
You are to tune into this creative power at your center. It is you in concert, in harmony, with all that is. Work in partnership with these forces larger than yourself as you develop the knowing within you. It will steer you always to the right place at the right time.
Trust your internal navigator! Cease your need to control, to define, to pin down, and explain. Simply tune in to the music of the web of life and dance.
Tree as healer
Now that spring is here, I ask you to touch your hand, your bare foot, perhaps your cheek to the earth, the cool sweet soil, the dewy grasses, the wet sand, the bark of a beloved tree, and allow her energies to fill and restore and heal you.
You were made for the earth and she was made for you. Feel the comfort of her pulse and rhythms, the knowledge that you are home.
I especially invite you to lay under a friendly tree with deep roots. Allow the energies of your home to encircle and fill you with the power your ancient ancestors knew, attuned to her from time immemorial.
You connect in this way to the web of all creation, all living creatures, all spirits, all energies that sustain life on our dearly beloved planet.
