Healing with trees

Post by firebirdflys »

Some of my best moments getting whole (healing from trauma) are going to the forest and sitting with the trees, leaning on trees, talking to trees or wandering the trails trough trees and just listening, ....
oaks in particular are long lived and have seen much as have the giant sequoia.
If only one can quiet the mind long enough to hear the wind rustling the leaves...it makes noise in such a manner that audible messages come through. Touching them grounds one while at the same time energizing the spirit.
My mother refers to a saunter through the woods as clearing the cobwebs of her soul,
I never undersood that as a kid, but as I became more connected I found she was right...once again, lol :lol:
Well it was time for a clearing of the cobwebs for her and I was more than happy to drive her to a favorite spot in the Sierras so that we may both gain some clarity.
We went to Sequoia National park, where some of the oldest and biggest trees in the world grow.
I was really stressing a couple years ago when the "rough" fire was consuming much of the forest here, it burned down the old lodge but the Sequoiadendron giganteum is mostly impervious to fire. In fact it needs fire to be healthy and to open seed pods.

It's quite smoky up here this trip...different fire this time... its at the outer edge of this national forest, which is huge so we aren't in any danger but it makes for smoky pictures.

Yes, they are for acorns, the area was a gathering spot for the local natives. The petroglyphs are just adjacent to the grinding rock. The grinding holes are all over the granite all the way down to the river which is down the trail a short ways. Oaks are abundant, pine less so but present, lots of buckeye but I do not believe they are edible.

I feel compelled to lose myself in those forests. Pray that people less compassionate than ourselves never feel the need to destroy them.
