Today we harness the power of the Equinox to take a "Quantum Leap" forward into global connection. Which is simply acknowledging and connecting to our already established global community.
This Equinox has been spoken and written about as a powerful time in connection to the shift of the ages. Some have said this is the actual date of the "Birth of the Age of Aquarius", others state this is the time when we will feel and see manifestations picking up speed in our 3d reality. I offer that this is when the 4th and 5th dimensions are merging more completely (and obviously) with our current collective consciousness. This means that our potential to experience our light bodies is massively increased, and that we have the increased potential to communicate energetically on a global level. I felt this the absolute perfect day to launch part 4 of the Karma Clearing Project, which has everything to do with experiencing ourselves as part of a global energetic community. I call it a "Global Connection Portal" as it is something that spans time and space, and can be accessed at any time via the love within our heart center.
I felt the nudge to use the trees as a metaphor for this global network. In many ancient traditions.. including shamanic, Native American, and Celtic traditions trees were seen and respected as metaphors for human existence.. and their roots systems viewed as messengers between each other and around the globe. Some traditions feel that trees can instantaneously communicate across the globe via their root systems. I personally love these stories, and teachings about the trees! I also want to share some more modern research findings .. specifically by a woman named Suzanne Simard, who published as article in Nature around her research for her PhD at Yale University. She was interviewed recently about her research documenting the symbiotic relationship of fungi with tree roots and how the fungi span the spaces between roots to facilitate communication between trees. You can find her recent interview published at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies here.
I also want to mention a book that has been seminal to my understanding to tree communication "The Hidden Life of Trees" by Peter Wholleben was recently featured in the Smithsonian, I find this quote from Smithsonian quite provocative:
Since Darwin, we have generally thought of trees as striving, disconnected loners, competing for water, nutrients and sunlight, with the winners shading out the losers and sucking them dry. The timber industry in particular sees forests as wood-producing systems and battlegrounds for survival of the fittest.
There is now a substantial body of scientific evidence that refutes that idea. It shows instead that trees of the same species are communal, and will often form alliances with trees of other species. Forest trees have evolved to live in cooperative, interdependent relationships, maintained by communication and a collective intelligence similar to an insect colony. These soaring columns of living wood draw the eye upward to their outspreading crowns, but the real action is taking place underground, just a few inches below our feet.
“Some are calling it the ‘wood-wide web,’” says Wohlleben in German-accented English. “All the trees here, and in every forest that is not too damaged, are connected to each other through underground fungal networks. Trees share water and nutrients through the networks, and also use them to communicate. They send distress signals about drought and disease, for example, or insect attacks, and other trees alter their behavior when they receive these messages."
---You can find this excerpt as well as more information here at the Smithsonian.org
Today we explore the forcefield of the heart. Quite possibly the most powerful tool we have at this juncture to transmute and transform our visions from fear into love and power and creation.
This broadcast is supported by the network of trees in the local area where I live, as when and where you listen .. you will come to understand how trees are interconnected to us and to the Universal Field.
I was recently gift a book titled The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wholleben .. and when I flipped to a page to use for todays broadcast here is what I found "And what if you cut a tree down? Is its then dead?" In my experience of continuing to record he music of the tree felled in my yard, I can tell you this stump is still producing sound for music.. which is so cool. And Wholleben seems to support this idea he speaks of a centuries old stump, from which vibrant life including trees sprung out of and is currently thriving within its circumference.. "In many woods, this happens all the time. For centuries in Europe, deciduous trees were cut right down to the base of their trunks by charcoal burners, who harvested them to make charcoal. New trunks grew from the base, forming the foundation for the woods today."
I am reminded of what I've learned and shared in earlier broadcasts about the redwoods, how they create something called a fairy ring... which is a ring of trees that rises to surround and grow from the base of a fallen tree. As if a family is rising simultaneously supported by and supporting of the energy of the felled tree.
Research has also begun to document that trees have energetic fields, and they have consciousness. This is very related to the feeling of calm we experience when we are a forest..
Trees, like the ocean, and also like Himalayan salt lamps, produce negative ions which are compounds that carry a charge because they have an unbalanced number of protons or electrons. Negative ions occur more often in nature and they are often created by things like lightening storms, sunlight, waterfalls, ocean waves, and the wafting of tree branches.
According to webmd: "Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind Brain Research and director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, N.C.“They also may protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation.”
And for a whopping one in three of us who are sensitive to their effects, negative ions can make us feel like we are walking on air. You are one of them if you feel instantly refreshed the moment you open a window and breathe in fresh, humid air."
So while I'm far from seeking to claim that webmd says trees promote better health.. I just love providing info so you can connect the dots however energetically feels true for you :) As we've covered before, you are the one who knows the truth!
What want to offer next is more information on what I have come to understand as the forcefield of the heart. There is a host of research into the electromagnetic field of the heart. Most of which is coming out of the Heart Math Institute. According to these studies, The heart's electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain. To quote: “The heart generates the largest electromagnetic field in the body. The electrical field as measured in an electrocardiogram (ECG) is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the brain waves recorded in an electroencephalogram (EEG).” Studies from the Heart Math Institute also show that a powerful electromagnetic field can be detected and measured several feet away from a person’s body as well as between two individuals in close proximity.
What follows next is quite possibly the most magical part yet. I have come to understand that the forcefield of the heart can travel around the globe instantaneously. Research in quantum physics supports this, with studies documenting that conjoined particles, once separated, being effected by each other simultaneously.. this means information travels instantaneously across time and space. So what this means is when we can successfully conjure up the forcefield of our heart, we can bypass our current limitation of time space consciousness... and we can send healing and transformational energy anywhere and everywhere. I have successfully practiced this, coached it, and witnessed the phenomenon taking place. I look forward to co-creating that with you!
Below is the link to much from the felled pine tree. I invite you to first call all of your energy and focus here, to come present. Second, to tap into and expand the energy of your heart. Third to send that energy to the trees around the world. As you listen, I invite you to tap into this tree's inherent ability to communicate with all of nature, across space and time.
Hello! Today's broadcast, part 2 of the free 7 part training to participate in the Karma Clearing Project, covers some really amazing convergences between science and spirituality. I want to share in more depth the information on these as well as some more information on Einstein's theory of the Universal FIeld.
First, lets address the commonly held idea of genetic determinism with some intriguing research findings. Genetic determinism, also known as biological determinism, holds that a person's genes determine who they are.. this spans from the color of one's eyes, to whether or not a person will get diabetes, have a heart attack, have a mental disorder or contract a host of specific types of cancer. To get to the punchline, I offer that it is not our predetermined genetic makeup that controls who we are and what we become.. it is our energetic system and whats contained in our energetic field that determines who we are and what we become.
The findings from the Human Genome Project point us in this direction. The Human Genome Project, was an international, collaborative research program whose goal was the complete mapping and understanding of all the genes of human beings. All our genes together are known as our "genome." At the close of the findings from the Human Genome Project, researchers had expected to find 140,000 separate genes per 140,000 proteins currently known in the body. In a linear world, scientists expected 1 gene per 1 protein, in that individual proteins are responsible for activating individual genes. As proteins manufacture and supervise the productions of genes, the rational model would dictate that they would find one gene per currently known protein. But that was not the case! Something more magical happened... they found way less than what they expected... and truly what this means is that energy and the energetic field of our body is responsible for much of our DNA activation.
So, back to the data, instead of 140,000 proteins they found 23,688. This means they found only 1/6 as many proteins as there were genes. In the linear model of thinking, this amount is not even enough to get our brains to function.
This points to something else that is going on. Something that what we are coming know as our energetic field. Simply put, it is our energetic field that is coordinating the “turning on and off” of our gene expression. This means that there must be energy & information that is communicated within our overall system that helps signal our genes to turn on or off.
I offer it's the energetic field we fill ourselves up with every day that provides signals to our genes to create proteins. So, lets get back to gist, the notion that we do not currently fully know how our bodies activate genes. But we know that it is much more than a linear process. It must be an energetic system signaling. Rather than an on and off switch.. our energetic system is sending signals, and we know that we can influence our energetic system via meditation and energy work. Essentially we inherently know that we can upgrade and up level our bodies simply by tapping into the universal field.
Second, we now have scientific support that genes are malleable. This means our genes are not static, they are able to be changed. This was interesting for me personally, because I come from a background of science and statistics and linear knowledge.. and I’ve long been told and I once believed that my genetic makeup is what I was given at birth and can’t really be changed. I was told it might be able to be managed, but not changed. What I’ve personally come to discover is that that’s not necessarily true… nor is it anything we need to claim as true. I now know that we have the ability to change our genes in this lifetime.
Scientists have documented this, time and time again, with genes for diabates, heart disease, obesity, and a host of mental disorders.. and most all of these studies have used the power of one’s personal belief as the dependent variable. Which means that what we come to truly believe to be true, our bodies energetically and chemically align and create as out reality. This is the story of so many cancer remissions.. and onsets.. it is the story of how folks grow younger and lose weight, regain joint mobility.
Research is now revealing that our thoughts and feelings as well as our choices and experiences have a profound effect on our moment to moment genetic expression. Recent studies show that 90% of genes are engaged in cooperation with signals from the environment.
So how do we make sense of this unknown energetic field that affects us moment to moment? We do so with the Unified Field. The Unified Field was something that Einstein postulated must exist and he worked on it to his dying day, instead of calling it the Unified Field, he noted it as unified field theory.
In the 1920s, when Einstein began his work on a unified field theory, electromagnetism and gravity were the only known forces, and the electron and the proton were the only known subatomic particles. Most physicists at the time were excited about the newly discovered quantum theory, and spent their time absorbed with exploring its bizarre and interesting consequences. They didn’t see any great need for a theory uniting electromagnetism and gravity.
But Einstein, and several other scientists, felt differently and set to work on the problem of unification. Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell created the first field theory in the mid-19th century, concerning electromagnetism. Then in the early 1900s, Einstein postulated his theory of general relativity, which has to do with the field theory of gravitation.Einstein attempted to develop a unified field theory in the 1920s, but he was hindered because only some of the forces were known at the time. While electromagnetism and gravity were well recognized, studies of the atom were in their infancy; at the time, the electron and the proton were the only known subatomic particles, according to the American Physical Society.
Einstein (collaborating at first with Jacob Grommer) built on the work of other scientists, who were trying to render space-time into five dimensions. Specifically, Einstein's work on space-time would take up four dimensions, and an extra set of equations (representing Maxwell's equations for electromagnetism) would be the fifth. Scientists who worked on this problem include Hermann Weyl, Theodor Kaluza and Oskar Klein. In 1918, Hermann Weyl proposed a unification scheme based on a generalization of Riemannian geometry. Inspired by Weyl’s work, Theodor Kaluza showed that by extending space-time to five dimensions, one could produce the Einstein equations in four dimensions, plus an extra set of equations that is equivalent to Maxwell’s equations for electromagnetism. The fifth dimension would be compact, curled up so small that we can’t detect it. Oskar Klein later refined this idea.*
This is great, as it reminds us that there is so much more than what we can currently see and know.. it points to the need to include dimensions beyond what we currently experience with our senses in this third dimensional environment. Essentially the search for a unified field theory in physics points to what is known in metaphysics as the Unified Field.. a space and place where everything is connected across time and space.

Today's full moon in Pisces brought many of us closer to our inner truth. The inner questions of "Who am I?" and "Why am I here?" are feeling more real than ever before.
I felt the nudge to officially "launch" the Karma Clearing Project today, as we now have 58 countries and over 8000 listeners. Now is the time to embody our new awareness and help elevate consciousness around the planet! To participate in the Karma Clearing Project, all you need to do is listen, breathe and connect to the power of your intention. I will give the tools for this practice over the course of seven free podcasts/broadcasts. You can listen whenever you like! You will find the first broadcast below and the supporting documents here:
I refer to research on the effects of meditation and sending energy for love and healing as well as global healing initiatives in the broadcast, and I want to provide some more background with the rest of this post.
First, the Global Peace Initiative, which ran from 1987-1990, involved 7000 people in India who were trained in a variation to Transcendental Meditation to promote peace. Prior to the initiative, the world saw much violence...the Cold War had reached dangerous heights, over a million people had been killed in the Iran-Iraq war, Apartheid in South Africa had turned to a violent revolution, and terrorist attacks around the world were becoming commonplace.
During and after the initiative, the world witnessed a turn of tides of sorts.. where much more peaceful events occurred; the Cold War ended, the Berlin Wall came down, the Iran-Iraq war came to an end, South Africa began to move towards abolishing Apartheid and terrorist attackes subsided.
While the Initiative stopped because the funding for the Global Peace Initiative ran out, the message and legacy of what they were able to achieve remains. The Karma Clear Project has the potential to do similar work, as well as to more permanently clear and shift global events. Because the offerings and the work are free, the only currency needed to maintain the project is your personal investment of breath and intention.
Second, in 1993 a group of 800-4000 meditators gathered with the intention to decrease violent crime in Washington D.C.. During the first five months of 1993, violent crime has been steadily rising, during June and July of that year, the meditators gathered. Within very little time, the crime rate began to decrease. The violent crime rates in continued decreasing over the course of both months, with a maximum and statistically significant decrease of 23.3%. Have a look at the figure below, which shows the results of the study.
Finally, in 2003 the Rand Corporation conducted a study of three large meditation groups gathered for the purpose of creating world peace. They retroactively studied the two year period in which these groups gathered, and found a 72% reduction in worldwide terrorism during the time the groups were gathered. The study ruled out the possibility that this reduction in terrorism was due to cycles, trends, or drifts in the measures used, or to seasonal changes. See the figure below.
There are two things that make the Karma Clearing Project unique and potentially powerful: First, we have the ability to transcend time and space with our meditations, our intentions and our energy. Put another way: you can "gather" with a group whenever you see fit, you do not have to be physically present, nor do you have to practice at a particular time or date. Second, we have the ability to do more than just shift and heal the energy of situations remotely, we have the ability to clear the karmic density and potentially permanently heal people, places, things and situations.
I invite you to join me. You can find the supporting images and documents for day one of our 7 day training here. Much Love!
Sound is energy and can be used as healing energy for our physical, mental and emotional bodies. In fact, many (possibly all) ancient cultures utilized sound and energy in their healing techniques.
In the broadcast below, I introduce a ancient healing rite that was practiced in ancient Egypt. Within the Egyptian culture, this information was kept secret and only a select few were brought into the Kings Chamber in the Great Pyramid at Giza on the night of the full moon to practice this rite.
Today, I felt the nudge to share it on the night of the full moon, as it is a lovely time to heal and expand our energy bodies. This practice is intended to support those on the path to their true purpose for being here on the earth at this time. Enjoy and my the power of the full moon be with you!
Transforming Fear into Love might be the simplest and most important tool we cultivate in the years to come.
Why? The concepts and energies in this meditation support understanding the power of our consciousness and fully harnessing our awareness toward what we want to create. The meditation is simultaneously a tool for personal empowerment as well as for co-creating our future with intention and wisdom (vs. old programming of reaction and fear.)
Please share with anyone you feel would find this empowering and benefit from it!
As per the broadcast, I include more astrological information on Chiron entering into the sign of Aries.
First: Chiron is likely a comet, once thought an asteroid. Understanding Chiron (at least for me) felt like moving from a basics into an advanced course: the fundamentals (planets and houses of astrology) will always apply, but now we move onto the nuances. Put another way, once you come to understand the planets, you move onto the asteroids, comets, and other heavenly bodies.. as Everything is Energy ~ each planet, star, and asteroid has some sort of energetic effect on us, both as a planet earth/community consciousness, and also according to our unique "fingerprint" of how the stars aligned at the time and place we were born. To keep things simple, I am going to focus only on the earth group/collective effects, as they are a universal grounding place from which to experience the energies.
Second: Chiron is known as the wounded healer. Aries is the warrior; confident, self -focused and strong-willed. What do these two have to 'say' to one another when they meet? There are quite a few ways to cut these cards: most of them cycle around being faced with and pushed to do what is uncomfortable.. but you know that it is time so you do it. even though its somewhat personally painful. Perhaps its calling up more strength, courage, or motivation when you feel like your tank is past empty. It might also be fighting for what you want even though you feel the fear and pain of the process. There is both lack of motivation and bravery. You will likely be called to do what feels vulnerable and uncomfortable because some inner part of you is telling you to "go." Your mind doesn't like it, but your soul is taking the drivers seat.
Third: Chiron, although many think of it as "just an asteroid/comet" has the ability to offer profound realizations.. like life-soul-purpose type stuff. When we move beyond how we "think" of things and into how we "experience" things, Chiron speaks to our soul about the deep core wound we brought into this life so as to heal. So, not for the faint at heart, but Chiron also offers tons of support and wisdom on the path.
Finally: As I mentioned in the podcast, Chiron entered Aries on April 17, 2018. This is a big shift and he moves slowly. Chiron will more or less be in Aries for the next 8 years, just as he was in Pisces for the past 8 years. If you read this post near April 17, 2018, take a look around at what's shifting and shifted in the past and next few days for you. These are likely signaling of sparks and subjects to come that you will continue to have opportunities to gain power and clarity. if you read this later, think back to mid April 2018, to the energetic and emotional shifts that were most meaningful to you.
And most importantly: The mediation offered is a tool specifically for these times and the times to come. I invite you to use it often and share it with those you love. Now is the beginning of a next and new chapter... and you get to choose and revise the vibration of the entire book (past-present-future).
Today's podcast featured humpback whale sounds. (You can check out the link to podcast below).
I write to share a few notes about whales and water alchemy from this podcast.. and why they create an interesting cross-section.
First, whales speak in sound waves, and they do so though water. Many find their tones relaxing, purifying, and opening.. I personally feel they balance, heal, and positively charge our third eye and crown chakra with their sounds. The sounds in the podcast recoding today come from humpback whales, a link to humpback sounds for you here.
Second, whales primarily inhabit the 9th dimension. They're here with us in 3d, though most of us in 3d don't fully understand them. As we move into 5d, many more are hearing the information whales share in their soundings and calls. Yes, we are moving from 3d to 5d! (another post is needed :) And, well, if you listen closely to the whale sounds.. you can hear vibrationally in your body the information they are sharing. They are communicating with everything as they bubble, sound, flap and dive, everything including us.
Onto the importance of whales in water alchemy: I've long understood whales as water alchemists.. since about 9th grade. Whales use water to communicate, and they infuse it with their sound and intention. While science today speaks of this as "whale communication".. I offer that whales are infusing their energy into the water with their sounding and vibration. How and why does it work? Whales, like humans, are using their intention to send vibrations. When we go back to Water Alchemy 1 and Masuru Emoto's photos of crystallized water exposed to different sounds or vibrations, I am willing to wager that the crystalline shape of water taken from the vicinity of whales sounding is actually different and quite possibly beautifully structured. (If anyone is willing to work with me on sending their lab a sample of ocean water near humpback whale soundings, please message me below).
Finally, Reiki. The practice we are doing in these water alchemy meditations is based upon Reiki and energy healing. Energy healing is in our DNA, so we're programmed to do it and we don't need too much training (I like to think of it as offering guidelines). So, when you practice today's meditation, know its nothing you need a special credential to do.. its already in you!! Your intention for love and healing is all that you need.
Momentous day today!
We've got people from 17 countries around the world thus far joining us for the podcasts & meditation broadcasts. I promised to mention everyone in the blog: US, Canada, Mexico, Columbia, Brazil, Argentina, Iceland, Ireland, UK, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Romania, Greece, Philippines, Australia, & New Zealand. What an amazing group to start our global healing meditations today. THANK YOU.
The meditation below is meant to be used by anyone, anywhere, at any time. Think of it as a "time capsule" of sorts.. the energies of the broadcast carry across time and space. So you can share this with friends and family as you feel inspired.
A couple notes about the Schumann Resonance I mention in the meditation:
According to Wikipedia: Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere.
The main frequency coming from our planet, confirmed by German physicist and professor W.O. Schumann is 7.83Hz. This was established in 1952 by Schumann himself.
The Schumann Resonance is considered to the the heartbeat of our planet. Healers and mystics.. and well as physicists and astronomers agree that Earth’s electromagnetic field has been supporting all living things with this natural frequency pulsation of 7.83 Hz.
The ancient Indian Rishis referred to this as OHM, or the incarnation of pure sound. The frequency of 7.83 Hz also happens to be a very powerful frequency used with brain wave entrainment as it’s associated with low levels of alpha and the upper range of theta brain wave states. This frequency has also been associated with high levels of hypnotizability, suggestibility, meditation, and increased HGH (human growth hormone) levels, in addition to increased cerebral blood-flow levels while this frequency is being stimulated.
It would seem then that our nervous system can be influenced by the earth’s electromagnetic field. Very possibly why being in nature has always been so restorative and healing. Disconnecting from a typical city setting by reducing our exposure to crowds, traffic, work, and routine life—and instead getting out in natural surroundings—can slow our brain waves down from the aggressive, vigilant, anxious, and impatient states that are seen in higher ranges of beta brain waves to more restorative alpha waves.
Ancient wisdom teachings have mentioned that human consciousness can impact the magnetic field of the earth and create disturbances in it, similarly the earth's magnetic fleet is intimately and intricately tied to our stasis and well-being. This is what makes the meditation for ealing our earth today so powerful; We are together harnessing our consciousness to positively affect the planet, AND we are doing it en masse around the globe. This is a moment and a time in which "evolution" has come to mean something more that just what we passively observe and something that happens to us.. it is a time when we can actively choose to participate in the reality that we create today, for a beautiful tomorrow. Please share this with anyone you feel would like to contribute their energy towards healing the planet.
Today we participated in a meditation that both heals ourselves and offers healing to the trees.
Let's bring to mind a few foundational ideas:
First, everything we offer in healing comes back to us. The healing we offered the trees today (or whenever you listen to the recording, as the energy is captured in the recording) ...all that healing energy is returned to us magnified. Simply put, this is the law of Karma. More esoterically, every healer and social evolutionist knows, that what you give out returns in a much larger way.
Second, trees have their own intelligence and respond energetically to our healing intention. Their energy field magnifies and opens up in response to love. I've long seen this as a plant rescuer and breeder. As I deepen my work in energy healing and clairvoyance, I become more and more aware of the trees, as age-old powerful beings of light. They speak a language that is not a language as we know it today.. most of us cannot hear it with our ears in modern day, as our clairaudience has been massively reduced, but we can begin to remember it by accessing our third eye and inner knowing. Think of tree communication as whale or dolphin communication, they can hear and feel so much more than most of us can. They are highly intelligent beings.
There are two noteworthy plant-breeders who were very aware of the intelligence of plants and trees, they openly state that their understanding of this intelligence (and ability to communicate with it) was what enabled them to achieve miraculous results.
Luther Burbank -
During his life, Burbank introduced over a thousand new plants, averaging one never-seen-before specimen every three weeks of his working career. The Burbank Potato is named after him. He achieved his results by talking with his plants, showering them with his love, and stating his requirements. “He was not sure that the shrubs and flowers understood his words,” wrote the philosopher Manly P. Hall, “but he was convinced that by some telepathy they could comprehend his meaning.”
A Dutch professor, Hugo de Vries, a geneticist who was later to become celebrated for carrying forward Darwin’s life work with his own theory of mutation, visited Burbank and wrote of his work that “its value for the doctrine of evolution compels our highest admiration.” Burbank’s understanding of evolution was clear, while clearly non-Darwinian: Intelligence is both present and at work within Nature, within all its forms, including trees and plants; and we, as humans, can work consciously with it – evolving new forms even – as co-creators.(1)
George Washington Carver -
The other great American plant breeder, a horticulturalist and agricultural chemist, George Washington Carver, born just before the American Civil War, had to overcome the severe handicap of being black and of slave descent. As a you child he started a garden hospital in the woods where he cared for sick plants and developed a reputation for healing them. People in the area used to bring him their ailing specimens. When asked how he could perform such miracles, he replied softly: “All flowers talk to me and so do hundreds of little living things in the woods. I learn what I know by watching and loving everything.”
He is particularly remembered for his achievements in cultivating peanuts, which had lived a humble virtually unknown existence in the wild before their phenomenal rise to prominence; and for the development of products such as peanut butter and oil. By 1930, he had turned their one-time worthlessness into something approaching a billion dollar industry for southern farmers. But these were achievements among many. Henry Ford thought him “the greatest scientist living” and tried unsuccessfully to employ him. The renowned inventor, Thomas Edison of light bulb fame, also tried and was unsuccessful in spite of offering an astronomical sum. “Carver is worth a fortune,” he declared. But Carver was not interested in fortunes and, unlike Edison, never took out patents. Wherever his fertile mind turned, he discovered new products, which made fortunes for others.
But it wasn’t simply his fertile mind. He worked with the same recognitions as Burbank, acknowledging the intelligence of plants and communicating and cooperating with them. It was through his attuning to their intelligence that they revealed their gifts. He knew, too, that Nature Spirits, which he had encountered in the woods of his youth, took an active part in their growth. Like Burbank he baffled everyone, scientists in particular, with the seemingly meaningless simplicity of his replies. “The secrets are in the plants,” he would say. “To elicit them you have to love them enough.” (1)
Third and finally, trees communicate to each other! I offered in the meditation today that trees communicate to one another both in networks and around the globe. I have one cite here from author George Haskell, to help us along, I will add more soon.
In this book,The Songs of Trees, Haskell doesn’t treat the trees as individuals. He sees them as “nature’s great connectors,” living symbols that life is about relationships. "Roots draw nutrients from symbiotic fungi and communicate with neighboring bacteria. Leaves sniff the air to detect the health of neighbors, while releasing alarm chemicals that summon caterpillar-destroying parasites. Seeds are dispersed by far-flying birds. Photosynthetic cells harness the power of sunlight using structures evolved from free-living microbes. And these kinds of relationships are ancient: A balsam fir that Haskell encounters in Ontario exemplifies this idea; it grows on rocks that contain the corpses of bacterial colonies that lived 1.9 to 2.3 billion years ago."
“The fundamental nature of life may be not atomistic but relational,” Haskell says. “Life is not just networked; it is network.” (2)
So, as you listen to our "singing and toning the the trees meditation" I hope this background provides a bit more 3d grounding as to why and how one might want to communicate with trees... and hopefully enough inspiration to pass this along to your friends!
Please visit the other free tree healing meditations on the Karma Clearing website.
And for anyone who feels called to donate to an amazing cause, I ask you to look to TreeSisters, a global nonprofit organization that empowers women while reforesting the amazon. They are currently planting just under 200K trees per month in much needed areas of the amazon and projecting to 2 million a year. They offer beautiful mediations and community with a small donation, I am a local grove tender, so if you feel called to come to an event in Los Altos, CA, let me know via our Meetup group or online submission here.
Alchemy according to Merriam Webster:
Onward! What is water alchemy? Well, its transforming water to carry new (and more useful) information.
I mentioned the work of Masuru Emoto in the last post. I would like to share his documentation of group energy work done with love toward water (www.masaru-emoto.net/english/hado.html) as further help in solidifying the foundation belief that war carries energy, and our thoughts and energy have the ability to transform water.
Returning to the theme of Water Alchemy, today we are in Part 1- which is energetically infusing water with our own personal intention. We do this though the power of our mental imagery, our thoughts, as well as the energy we move through our hands. We offer additional supports to the water by writing our intentions on paper and allowing the words to face inward on the container towards the water.. As if the water is able to "read" the words we write.
For this work today, the most important thing is your intention. So, relax, soften, and let the rules of "how to make it happen" go. Spend some more time with your intention and then transition it towards your own power to create.
Hello! I am Lisa Marie Haley, I'm a Stanford Grad.. 3 (almost four degrees) in from that institution. Those I finished include: neuropsychology, political historical sociology and the effects of music on public opinion.. phew! At present I am a channel, energy healer, Reiki Master, clairvoyant as well as herbal and gemstone healer. I believe that we are all one and everything is connected :)
