Prehistory. Channelling 2008

15 million years ago the world was a very different place. Continents existed which no longer exist in your world. These places now are beneath your feet, in the deepest oceans and flattened beneath tons of ice. But in the deepest places of the earth, canyons, the sea bed and pits in the earth these regions are accessible. Beneath the earth’s core lies another world, the place of divine creation. This world is constantly in process, creating the magnetic fields which power your earth and keep you alive. This place, or world, is not physical but magnetic and it supplies the power to your world on the earth’s surface. Without this world your world would not exist. That is why the interaction between the elemental worlds of earth, air, fire and water are crucial to your understanding of the magnetic fields of the earth. Without these elements the magnetic field would have nothing to ‘work upon’ or to ‘act upon’. Its job of creation is to regulate the force fields of each element and this is why you find many healers working with the different elements. All are needed if the world is to remain in balance.
Our work, in your prehistoric past, was also to regulate our world. We did this in much the same way in which we are teaching you today. In times past we too understood the volcanic nature of creation and strove to work in harmony with it choosing our times carefully and with foresight. We knew that the result of our actions would effect the entire planet’s energy field and so we worked diligently to repair it and maintain its efficiency.
The magnetic core at the centre of the earth is regulated by other, more cosmic energies, held in place like a ball on a number of strings, taut like a cable. When this forcefield changed so also did our work requirements. We strove always to work in harmony with the earth’s forcefield so that all life would succeed.
There are layers of patterns working in harmony with each other and all layers require different expertise. But all need to work in harmony. This is why it is so important that those who work on their particular layer are trained to trust their intuition and vision so that the patterns can be re-instated or changed as necessary. Each elemental world requires its own patterning. The sea world requires the use of magnetic flows which are capable of ‘swimming’ the currents, like giant sea serpents, meandering along specific ‘highways’. Earth currents do likewise but require a different attention than those of the sea. The waterways which flow through the landscape require yet another form of energy regulation if they are to flow in harmony with the other forms of life and so on. Working in harmony with each element is vital to the success of the planet.
There are other networks of energy which flow through the deeper layers of the earth, layers which cannot be accessed by humanity for they lie too deep beneath the earth’s crust. These energy flows are regulated by outside forces, forces which you have not yet come into contact with for that is not in your realm of experience. Suffice it so say that all is taken care of, either by humanity’s healers, the earth’s healers or the cosmic balancers.
If you would allow us we will now teach you how to maintain the earth’s energy flows which run throughout the earth’s crust on even deeper layers. These are layers which our civilisation would have been familiar with but which your archaeologists have never discovered. These layers lie within a circle of fire which you can access by going within. All parts of the world contain these rings of fire but only some are visible. Allow us to share our world with you.

Brisingamen by Thorskegga Thorn. (Commentary is mine)

Commentary.
My guides had, for months, been bringing my attention to this story which I only now understand. This version describes it better than any other version I have read so far.
This story is about the Goddess Path and how each sacred relationship, no matter how difficult, adds another ‘power’ to your already created necklace of life experience and wisdom. As a Priestess learns to be the Goddess, which is a lifelong path once embarked upon, relationships become very different. Often they are very difficult emotionally and one cannot apply ‘normal’ rationale to them. When I say ‘normal’ I mean within self-development terms. They can feel abusive, painful, co-dependent and downright unbearable sometimes but they have to be ‘undergone’ in order to gain the prize, becoming the Divine Feminine. They often have a strong karmic element to them and are mainly to do with service to the planet and to Humanity. There is a very definite feel of when you are ready to release the relationship and your karmic work is done. The gifts to come out of these relationships make you stronger,with more self-knowledge and with gifts of healing and abundance. They often facilitate your work and development in material terms, depending on what you need to develop. But you have to give some part of yourself to the relationship in order to gain the deep healing and gifts.
This path is the Old path, as told in the story, but only the strongest of women, women who are undergoing, a deep underworld journey themselves, can stay with them. In the initial stages you are aware that this is a healing journey but as you go further it becomes more and more about the anchoring the Goddess energy in your self. Becoming one with her. Each of these relationships are gone into very consciously and under guidance and run contrary to everything we are taught in our self-development. It is only when we have reached a certain point in our development that we can undertake these relationships at all. It is a very powerful process of Anchoring the Goddess consciousness in ourselves so that the male consciousness can be healed. At the end of this process the Goddess can then join with her consort, bringing all her gifts and skills with her to lighten the earth and its people, with him. In the beginning he does not recognise her but eventually he sees her gifts and knows.
Each dwarf in this story is one such relationship and the Goddess Freya goes into each willingly even though it is painful but in doing so she gains something which helps her in her role as Goddess. This happens when the Goddess consciousness is rising again as it is now. Each one brings his own challenges and gifts but without making these sacrifices she knows that she will not succeed in her path of Being the Goddess, and the world will not receive her gifts.
BRISINGAMEN.
Two fair goddesses sat close by the weaving loom, the Vanir queen and Beyla, the mead maker. Freyja frowned, concentrating on the half image of woven silk before her, eager to complete her work. Freyja hoped to have the tapestry on the wall of the ale hall before her brother returned. She sighed, ‘tapestries take so long’ she mused, ‘even for goddesses’ ! Freyr stood before her in the shining silks, sword raised in triumph, the earth dragon dead at his feet, ancient days, at the beginning of the world. Freyja reached for another skein and twined the thread into the weaving.
Suddenly Freyja’s concentration was broken as her brother ran into her chamber, a boyish smile on his face and a golden boar trotting at his side. Freyja stared in disbelief, the boar shone like the sun and gazed at her with large and intelligent eyes. Beyla leaped up with delight, scattering her tools. “Isn’t he wonderful ?” Freyr cried happily, “the dwarves made him for me ! And this as well !”, Freyr pulled a small wooden object from his purse. Freyja, still somewhat taken aback by the boars appearance, took it from his hand, and was shocked to be holding a miniature battleship, perfect in every detail..
“Why ” was all the Vanadis could say.
“Oh, it was some knavery of Loki’s, but the dwarves were honoured to make treasures for all the gods. Thor’s got a lovely hammer.
“And what did they make for me” asked Freyja.
Freyr’s face fell, ” Er, nothing dear, maybe Loki forgot to mention you”.
“We will soon see about that” Freyja said coldly, and demanded to know the names of the dwarven smiths. The nervous Freyr told all he know and watched his beloved snatch her feather cloak and hurtle angrily into the air in falcon form.
“Ah, women !”, Freyr sighed, grinning sheepishly down at the boar who oinked in agreement.
Far away in the lands of men, a storm thrashed at the wings of a struggling falcon. Thor was enjoying his new hammer and Freyja’s weather spells weren’t having any effect on the tempest. Freyja was in a black mood when she landed in the dwarves’ cave mouth. Freyja shrugged off the cloak and wrung out its’ sodden feathers, and magicked her damp hair and clothes back to respectability. She set off down the stone tunnels with a determined and dangerous stride.
Far beneath the ground, where the sun’s light could never reach, Freyja found the dwarves she was searching for. They were exhausted from their recent endeavours, drunk with good ale and half heartedly arguing the finer points of metallurgy. Freyja demanded her share of the treasures that had been made for the other gods. The dwarves groaned “Come back next week” said one.
“If I even see another set of bellows before the month’s end, I’ll die” said another.
Freyja was not prepared to wait and screamed at the dwarves: “You have no honour for the goddesses !” she cried, “You should be ashamed !”.
The master smith Eitri grinned up at Freyja through hazy drunken eyes, “Be fair madam, you will get no work out of us today but there are four brothers nearby who will gladly make you a treasure, but it will cost you dear.
“I will pay if I must” Freyja muttered. Eitri gave her directions and the goddess strode off, determined to find a treasure to match the others. The dark tunnels took Freyja further and further from the world of men and finally she came to the forge Eitri had described. The dwarves were working here, their hammers clattering and echoing around the vaulted ceiling. The fire of the forge reflected on their pale, corpselike faces and Freyja shuddered at the sight. One dwarf looked up and gasped at the visitor, the first woman these low dwellers had ever seen.
Freyja walked in haughtily, well aware of the effect her firelit beauty was having on the smiths. “I have come to commission a treasure from you. Are you aware of the gifts made so recently forthe gods ?” “Aahh”;, hissed one of the smiths, “gifts given freely, the unskilled work of amateurs !”.
“You can do better ?”;, asked Freyja.
“We can, if you are prepared to pay”.
“I am”, Freyja replied.
“Then we will set to work, and when the treasure is finished we can discuss what is due”. The dwarves whispered amongst themselves and then set to work, stoked the fire into a towering searing blaze, pumped hard at the bellows, poured liquid gold from crucibles and hammered busily. Content that she would return with a prize worthy of a goddess, Freyja relaxed away from the scorching heat of the forge.
After an hour the fire died down and the dwarves brought their work to Freyja for inspection, between them they held a glittering and elaborate necklace of gold and amber, intricate beyond belief and of unsurpassed beauty. Freyja was filled with an uncontrollable desire to own the jewels, and asked what she owed them for their work. The dwarves grinned and said “We want you”.
“What ?”, Freyja sobbed in horror, aching with desire for the necklace, “you expect me to live in this hole ?”.
“Nay”, answered one of the dwarves,”only for four days, one with each of us”. Freyja was filled with disgust at the very sight of the pale smiths, but she had to have the necklace, after a few minutes thought she consented.
The ugliest dwarf grabbed the necklace and shooed his brothers away, he turned to the goddess and said “Lady, my name is Alfrigg. Will you honour your promise and lie with me until the forge is cold ?” .
“I will honour my promise” Freyja replied. Alfrigg held out the necklace and gestured for Freyja to bend down so he could fasten it round her neck. The dwarf arranged the jewels in three tiers and Freyja was overjoyed at having the treasure about her shoulders. She smiled at the dwarf in pure pleasure, seeing not his ugliness but the skill which had crafted the gorgeous necklace and loved him for it. She untied her belt, unfastened the golden pins securing her gown and let it fall softly to the floor. The dwarf shuddered with desire for the naked goddess standing before him in the firelight, the gold and amber sparkling above her breasts and her smooth skin reflecting the embers’ glow. Freyja knelt down in front of him and kissed his lips warmly, then pulled his face against her bosom. Alfrigg squealed with delight and kneaded her breasts as she pulled off his breeches. She lay down and drew him to her.
The embers were cooling and Alfrigg lay exhausted in Freyja’s arms. “Never has such pleasure been known in the dwarven halls”, sighed the dwarf. “Because you gave yourself to me so completely I will add a gift of dwarven magic to your prize”, Alfrigg stroked the necklace and spoke charms of power over it. “No man you desire will resist you while you wear this necklace, no magic will defend them against you, even the gods will be brought to their knees with lust for you”.
The cavern had grown cold and Alfrigg helped the goddess into her gown. Time passed and Alfrigg’s brothers returned, they relit the forge fire and stoked the flames into a roaring blaze. The stockiest of the dwarves declared himself to be next and ordered his brothers out of the room.
“I am Dvalin”, the dwarf declared, “and you are mine until the fire grows cold”. The dwarf leaped at Freyja with astonishing strength and tore her dress from her. He pummelled her breasts roughly so she gasped with pain. He bit her nipples and entered her, clawing at her woman hood with his fingers. The hours of abuse passed slowly for Freyja, but she lay for him without complaint, thinking always of the necklace heavy on her neck, and the power it now contained.
Eventually the fire cooled and the breathless Dvalin ceased his rough play. The dwarf grinned at her, saying “because you gave yourself to me so completely I will add my own magic to your prize”. Dvalin, all fury gone, stroked the necklace gently and spoke dwarven charms. “No warrior you admire will fail to please you while you wear this necklace. No army you support will fail on the battlefield. No fallen warrior will resist your call and no magic of men or gods will prevent you”. Dvalin put blankets around the goddess and held her tenderly as the fire died. The brothers returned and kindled the fire, piling the fuel high.
The third dwarf claimed the right to lie with Freyja, and his fellows left the room. “I am Berling”, the dwarf declared, “will you love me as you loved Alfrigg, my brother ?”. Freyja was still sore and weary from Dvalin’s attentions but, determined to settle her debt for the fabulous necklace, nodded. She let the blankets fall from her shoulders and the dwarf marvelled at her naked beauty. The dwarf gently pulled Freyja to her knees, the better to reach her with his short stature. He kissed her, then explored her body slowly and passionately with his tongue, encouraged by Freyja’s gasps of pleasure as he suckled at her nipples. Finally he supped from Freyja’s chalice, the goddess moaned with joy, after Dvalin’s harsh lovemaking, this was bliss.
“Will you do the same for me ?” asked Berling. Freyja nodded again and pulled the dwarf’s shirt over his head, only to check in horror, for Berling’s body was covered in festering scabs. Freyja concentrated hard on the necklace, on beloved Freyr, fair Vanaheim and all she held dear and returned the dwarf’s attentions. The pus from his wounds was foul in her mouth but she took care to repay him fairly. Berling screamed as Freyja bought him to the heights of passion, and then he lay in her arms, gasping for breath.
Once he had recovered the dwarf gazed up at the goddess in admiration. “Only the bravest of women could have embraced a wretch like me. Because you gave yourself to me so completely I will add my own magic to your prize”. Berling stroked the necklace and muttered his dwarven charms. “You will have the might to overcome all illness while you wear this necklace. No curse will prevent you. Death itself no barrier to your healing”. Freyja laughed with happiness and wove charms around the dwarf. By the end of her song there was no sign of his wounds. She held Berling in her arms until the fire burned low, and the dwarf rose to wrap her in blankets and furs.
In the deep cavern, the sunless hours passed and the other dwarves returned to the forge and rebuilt the fire. The fourth brother seemed most reluctant to claim his rights and hung back. His comrades laughed at him and left crying shouts of encouragement. “What is your name ?”, asked Freyja, smiling with amusement at his nervousness.
“Grerr”, the dwarf mumbled staring at his feet.
“Don’t you want me ?” asked Freyja.
Grerr was very short, even for a dwarf, and clearly lacked the confidence of his brothers. “If you don’t want to do this”, Grerr stammered, “you don’t have to – I won’t tell them”. Freyja frowned, was he unwilling, or suffering a virgin’s nightmares of impotency ? Freyja owed a debt to this dwarf, and her pride would not see an oath broken lightly. Using her magic she reached out to Grerr’s mind, and felt it full of lust and fear of failure. Grerr thought himself unworthy of a goddess and it would take a strong charm to restore his confidence.
Freyja drew the dwarf to her and let the blankets fall from around her shoulders. Grerr stared up at her, in helpless reverence of the unreachable divinity before him. Freyja willed him to desire her body and the necklace burned brighter around her shoulders. The dwarf’s uncertainty snapped and he leapt into her arms and buried his mouth into her bosom. Freyja held the dwarf, scarcely larger than a child , to her breast as he suckled with the passion of a man. She lay down for him and Grerr, the virgin, mounted her like a veteran. The forge fire slowly dwindled and Grerr pulled the blankets back around Freyja to keep her warm. “You repaid me faithfully”, the dwarf said proudly, “Because you honoured your debt when you could have shunned me, I will add my own magic to your prize”.
Grerr stroked the necklace and sang his charms. “Your beasts and the beasts of your friends will be fertile when you wear this necklace. The ground where your feet fall will yield the best of crops and flowers. No woman you love dearly will want for a child”.
Grerr’s brothers returned and gathered to bid Freyja farewell. The goddess hugged them all in turn, thanking them for the wondrous necklace and their priceless gifts. She retrieved her falcon feather cloak and followed the tunnels back to the sunlit lands. At the cavern’s entrance she paused, the storm was long over and after the dim forge the light was overwhelming. Freyja stood triumphant, enjoying the warm sun on her naked skin, the wind in her hair, and the weight of the necklace on her shoulders. Vanaheim’s call was strong after so long away. She threw the falcon feather cloak around her shoulders and soared into the sky.
Freyr sat miserably in the meadows of Vanaheim, his beloved had been gone for days and he pined for her company. His gold bristled boar lay beside him in the sun, rivalling its brilliance. A hawk’s cry broke the stillness and the boar rose onto his forelegs and grunted a welcome to the swooping bird. Freyja let the falcon’s form drop away as she alighted before her brother. Freyr stared at the goddess he thought he knew so well. She wore a necklace that put the sun, moon and stars to shame, wild flowers sprang from the turf where she walked towards him and she kindled a lust in him that seared him to his very soul. Freyja embraced him and he wept for joy.

Tree Attunements.

2006-05-10 12.32.35A tree attunement is an attunement to the essence of a tree. You do not literally become a tree, although that would be nice, but you do become the energy of Trees. This is because the heart energy of Trees can be downloaded into your system, via a ‘centre to centre’ link, where I feed you the essence of Trees, as I was fed by trees.

This is a little difficult to explain, but it began with a Dryad, in Coldridge Woods, in Wiltshire, in May 2006, where I had been doing an archaeological survey on an Iron Age Banjo enclosure. The tree lay in the woods which had grown up around the settlement. I had taken a friend up there as I was training her in Reiki.

About a couple of hundred meters beyond the settlement site, lay the remains of a Roman Villa, which I was also surveying, with a colleague from Winchester University. We often field-walked this site, picking up bits of pottery and other Roman remains. Having taken my friend to the Banjo enclosure, and introducing her to the energies there, we went to do some field-walking on the Villa Site. On the way we passed a large old beech tree. Its energy ‘felt’ different and to me it felt like an old, wise man. We sat at the base of the tree and tuned in, but nothing happened, so we got on with our plan to field-walk.

Returning from the field we passed the tree again and this time we sat at the roots and tuned in again, just in case… My personal guide (spirit), Standing Bear, appeared and I felt his energy move into mine, blending like ink in water. Then I ‘saw’ a tube of energy move from my Hara/centre into the centre of the Tree; into its heartwood. Standing Bear told me that it might feel a little uncomfortable for a while. I always hate when he says that , as it usually an understatement!cosmic tree

I sat, while the liquid tree energy, its sap, flowed through this umbilical cord and into my centre, feeding me. I had to remain sitting in place until this stopped. When it was finished, the tube retracted, pulling back into my body, and I could leave.

This experience made me think more like a tree, just Being, plus being able to stand still, when I need to, rather than feeling I have to do something all the time. Trees help just by being there. They don’t go uprooting themselves when someone else screams for help. Its not the tree’s responsibility to heal everyone, but it heals with its energy just by being itself, and sharing that energy with others. They are rooted in the earth, but their branches stretch high into the sky, touching the sun, and sky. They are capable of reaching deep into the earth, for nourishment, and high into the sky. Energetically this means that you can access the deep Earth layers and the upper vibrational layers of the Earth’s magnetic field, and higher dimensions.  You can access the higher dimensional energies and bring them deep into the Earth.

But that is not as easy as it seems. It takes hard, emotional work, to be like a tree. It is in our nature to rescue, to become involved, to save. But, in being a tree we have to learn to witness, while knowing that the work you do in not rescuing, not saving, not becoming involved, is just as valuable. It takes huge amounts of trust, and letting go of the pain, when others do not understand what we are doing. All they may see is our ‘abandoning’ behaviour, or our lack of caring. But we care very much. We witness it all, knowing that our standing still is doing more good than saving. We are allowing others to grow into their strengths, through their hard choices and difficulties. It is not everyone’s path to be a tree, as others have their own tasks with humanity, but for a person aligned with the energies of nature, that is often the way.

We use our ‘roots’ to hold human emotional energy and then root it someplace else, so that healing may happen. We are using our energy to heal, to create connections between other sites and other trees, to bring healing and balance to different areas, just like in my first experience with an ancient Yew tree. And it all happens through the earth.

My guides explained our Treeness like this:

The Tree.danebury-tree.jpg
When you began this journey you were but a speck in the ocean, a seed of creation, full of potentials yet unformed.
Today you stand as a tree, your potential grown and blossoming for all to see. You now bear the fruit of other’s potential in your branches. The fruit of your tree contains the seeds, which will one day mature into other trees and they, in their turn, will bear fruit which contain seeds of potential.
In this life you have grown and matured. You have moved through obstacles as you tried to root yourself in stony ground, which became your foundation. As you grew, you grew in strength, your roots trying to find the fertile soil of experience, which lay between the rocks and stones of your surroundings. Your branches ever sought the light of the sun, and the nurturing rain, which fell on your leaves. You expanded ever upwards, trying hard to grow no matter what the odds.

And here today, you stand connected. Your branches nourished by the soil/earth and stones. You have grown into a mighty oak, strong and tall, aware of the mighty currents which sweep through your branches. You stand solid and rooted, straight and true.
We ask you now to provide the fertile soil for the seeds which will fall from your tree, seeds which will need to develop the qualities of strength, love, joy and abundance.
Let nothing sway you from this task. Allow it to fill you, lighting every facet of your life until all that you do radiates life. Let the cells of your body become the repository of joy, not pain, love rather than hate. Let your life radiate the qualities of the tree, steadfast, nourishing and bountiful.
This is our wish for you today. Seek not without for the answers but within, for there you will find the seeds of creation which you will sow, and there too the light with which to nourish them.
Stand tall and be seen.

Trees and Dryads. Introduction.

DSCN0043

Dryad in the Churchyard of a deserted famine village on Achill Island, Ireland.

Trees play a very important role in the maintenance of balance on the earth, not only physically, but also energetically.  Some of them also have a consciousness, which we call Dryads. It was no accident that the first Gaia Method symbols were given to me by a Dryad, as they hold the elemental wisdom of the trees.  But not all trees have a Dryad energy. Dryads are tree spirits and they connect to all other trees within a given area. The Dryad is not a woodland sprite, who runs around the branches and skips amongst the leaves; it is the living spirit within a tree, a spirit which you can communicate with, if you choose to. Communicating with Dryads is simply a matter of trust and recognition.

There are thousands of Dryads in the world. Most of the Dryads I have worked with were in woods, or forests, or on Earth energy-lines. They can be of any age and you can usually ‘feel’ their age, but usually the older the tree, the older the Dryad.  They can also inhabit any species of tree. I have worked with Ash, Olive, Fig, Ficus Benjamina, Beech, Larch, Pine, Hawthorn, and Oak, amongst others. The ones that feel to me to have the most ‘human-like’ personality are the Beech trees. You can have whole conversations with the Beech Dryads! They seem to be very easy to access and are very ‘giving’ with their energy. Other species are doing definite ‘job’s, which you can help with, but they do not communicate in quite the same way as Beech trees.

Dryads also hold the energetic space around themselves. They can have huge energy-fields that ‘cover’ a large area. They are not limited by their physicality, just as we are not, we just think we are; the trees know they are not! When working with a Dryad, we are within its energy-field, even though we ‘need’ to be in physical contact with the tree’s physical self. We are all in a physical body but we all have an energy-field. Often, when in the presence of a Dryad energy it feels like wind in the branches, which suddenly whips up and fills the air.  Sometimes it feels like the entire area is filled with this ‘wind’, and there is a definite sensing of energy in it that communicates with you. It is a whole body, mind and emotion experience, so there is no mistaking it when you feel it.

Yew Dryad at Farringdon Village Church.

The roots of trees, can anchor the energy-lines, which run throughout the earth, transmitting the energy from those lines into the atmosphere, keeping it clear. However, these trees can also become very clogged, energetically, by human negativity and destruction. These trees then transmit all of that energy into their surroundings, because they will transmit whatever runs through the lines. They don’t have any judgement about whether it is good or bad, they just channel it from the earth and into the air, effecting the energy  around it. If the energy flow is denser, or filled with negative human energy then, over time, it effects the tree,  leading ultimately to its death.    I have used the roots of trees to anchor the red lines, the ones which come from deep beneath the earth. When they need to be brought closer to the surface, or even created, then a tree is usually what holds it in place.  Once it does this, then the tree is effected by it and holds the energy for its surroundings. The energy from the line energising the tree.

Dryads often have  a definite feeling of gender. They can be perceived as male or female, young or old. Some of them are so old it is as if they are just ‘present’ within the tree and their wisdom is all around them, but they do not communicate, so much as radiate; just ‘being’.  But you know they are there, because they ‘feel’ different.

When I first started working with Dryads, I thought that all trees held this type of consciousness. But then I tried to communicate with some trees and discovered that they felt like Trees, but had no Dryad energy. When I tried to blend my energy with a non-conscious tree, the feelings were incredibly subtle and initially I thought I was feeling nothing. But then I began to experience the tree’s experience of Time, and how the seasons changed around it. There was this constant awareness of movement within the seasons and cycles of change, which went on forever. At first I couldn’t understand why this was all I was picking up, but then realised that not all trees had a Dryad energy within them.

A friend tuning into Beech Dryad at Coldridge Woods Banjo settlement.

My very first Tree contact was with an ancient Yew tree, close to  Lainston House Hotel, near Winchester, in the 90’s. I had gone rambling through the woods, as I love exploring new paths, and I had found myself beside a huge old Yew tree, which I felt an impulse to stand against. As soon as I leaned my back against the tree, I became aware of it being connected to all the trees around it, through the earth. It was as though it was communicating with the other trees and somehow ‘broadcasting’ to them and into the environment. It felt amazing.  In many ways it acted like a satellite dish, but there was something in the communication which was about keeping the balance within the area. The Yew tree felt like the Elder and the rest of the trees in the woods felt like its children!

That experience awakened something in me, which, at the time, I didn’t fully understand until many years later. But ever since that experience, I was able to sense the energy in and around the Dryads.

Many trees live on the cross-over points of energy-lines, and they hold the energy which runs through the lines. They act as both anchors and transmitters. I remember one Ancient Ash tree, which lived on a boundary ditch that had once been part of a village deserted during the plague years. It had grown in the garden of one of the cottages, and even though the village was no longer there, the tree remained. When I was around this tree it always felt like I was in a cathedral, the energies were so light and spiritual. I was new to working with energy-lines and nature energies back then, but this tree’s energy was palpable. It felt like a Grail site, but of course I had  no idea what that meant. I loved this tree, and its wonderful energy, and took a lot of friends to visit it over the years.

You often find Dryads living on, or near sacred sites, even if that site is no longer there.  The energy, however, is, and the memories live on. Trees living around the energy of old churches, which were often built on pre-existing sacred sites, act like elephants and have a very long memory. You can tap into this energy by tuning into the tree. It is a little like psychometry!

One of the most important things I learned with trees is that they do not judge what we humans do, they just continue with their ‘function’ without becoming ‘upset’ about it. Many people working with trees tend to ‘project’ their own emotions and beliefs about the tree, onto the tree itself. The tree can have a very different idea of what it finds ‘acceptable’. To give you an example: Once I went to Swallowhead Spring, at West Kennet Long Barrow. There, people had left lots of ribbons and crystals and ‘stuff’, which to my  human mind seemed more like littering. But as I was thinking this and feeling quite pee’d off about the lack of respect people seemed to have for the site, the tree that grew beside the spring put ‘her’ feeling of gratitude into my consciousness. I was quite surprised. ‘She’ said that she was really happy that the site was being honoured by humans again, as it had once been and she didn’t mind their offerings. It brought love to a neglected place which once honoured the Mother, once more. I had to completely shift my perspective about what was acceptable and what was not after that. My human mind had simply projected my personal beliefs onto the site, and the Tree; I have never done it since! Although I do think that the stuff needs cleaning up now and again, so that it does not end up clogging up the area!

If you want to know what a tree really feels, then ask it. If you feel a negative emotional response, such as anger, sadness etc. then those are probably your feelings getting in the way! Trees don’t feel like we do, they are far more accepting of our failings than we are! I have never met an angry, or sad tree. They are far closer to the Source, or God, or whatever you want to call it, than we are. When you are in communication with trees, you are in communication with the Divine. Experientially it feels exactly the same. It feels joyful, accepting, loving and giving. Even when they are holding human negative energy, they still do not judge it. It just IS! To me, they feel far closer to our Soul’s experience, than to our human one… and our human perspective can be very limited!

I will post some of my experiences with trees, so that you can get an idea of just how to work with them and how they operate; then, if you have similar experiences you will know what they might mean. I would also love to hear some of your stories and communications, no matter how crazy your experiences might seem to be.in the Gaia Method

There are Tree energies available as an attunement within the Gaia Method System: symbols which gives you the ability to access the Dryad energy. There is also a ‘Tree infusion’ which I share with you, just as the Tree shared it with me. You can find out more under the tree attunements page.

The Changing Sun. Channelling.

2 February 2009.
In times gone by, when men were free and times were fruitful we expected our work to remain as it always had and our lives to be the same as they had always been. But we did not account for the rays which emanated from the sun. These rays, our source of life and light began to radiate in ever stronger ways. This brought destruction to parts of our world but it brought life to many others. We were forced to move where the sun was weakest and to recreate our lives in a simpler manner. We had no control over these circumstances but we did have control over how we managed these changes.
We moved our belongings and livestock to those areas which still allowed life to flourish. We did not delay for we saw, over a number of years, that the sun’s emanations were changing our way of life forever.
Over the coming winters you will see how your world is changing and you too will have to choose to stay or to change. The sun’s rays will mean that you will have to endure many years of fluctuating weather patterns over which you have no control. Life as you know it will subtly change and you will find that if your world wants to survive then you will have to flow to where life is still manageable.
This will not last forever but it will last for some time until the sun’s rays balance your world again and all can continue once more, albeit in a different form.
You recognised what needs to change and this is happening already.
You need to be prepared for these changes. You will need to be ready for a complete change of lifestyle. You will need to relearn old skills so that you can teach these skills to others. You will need to reorganise your lives so that you can survive the coming difficulties. Try to express this to those who will listen but do not take responsibility for their lives. Their destiny is theirs alone as yours is yours alone.
Relearn what you can then pass it on.
Combine your nomadic lifestyle with a life of culture and movement and bring back the old ways. They will be appreciated one day.
Join with us now in anchoring the Light of Divinity with the love of the Mother and see how things improve. Let your lot be a good one and rejoice in your ability to survive and thrive.
That is all. We hope that this helps you in your endeavours so that you do not stumble in the dark.
Adonai. The Adamic fathers.

Summer Solstice 2008 Channelling.

Down through the centuries mankind has endeavoured to find the source of his misery and suffering believing it to be inflicted by outside sources. However, he has consistently refused to look for the reasons inside of himself.
This has led to great wars, famine, and suffering across the globe and yet he continues to refuse the acknowledgment of his part in its failure. It is down to you, as a member of the human race to begin to look within for the source of all suffering. This has been said by many down through the ages, but as yet no-one has really heeded those words. Why is it, we hear you ask, that humanity consistently refuses to take responsibility for their actions, even though they see the outcome of those actions all around them, everyday? We answer you now, with kindness and compassion, that humanity refuses to bear the weight of its own choices and the outcome of those choices. It is as simple as that. If mankind were to realise, en-masse, that its choices effect everyone on the planet not just itself, then maybe he would begin to make better choices. It is only when one person refuses to acknowledge the results of his actions that suffering ensues and this suffering not only effects him but the entire world, as we are all connected in consciousness.
In order to effect change on this level many of you will need to consider that your choices all have consequences. As light-workers your responsibilities in this matter are huge. You are the ones who hold the new templates of thinking and belief which we ask that you act out, and own. It is through you that the template of suffering can change. It is through you that the new beliefs of kindness, awareness and compassion, coupled with a soul understanding, will be anchored on the planet but it is also your responsibility to ensure that you anchor these beliefs responsibly. This can only happen if you are healing your own, outdated, beliefs which state that suffering is the natural outcome of human life. We say NO. It is not the natural state of humankind to suffer. Suffering is the result of unnatural choices made on a daily basis. From a soul perspective you are incarnate on the planet to serve and to learn, through all your experiences but your experiences here, through successive lifetimes should teach you that belief and awareness can heal the world and create a place where humankind can change the name of the game. You are not destined, collectively, to suffer. You are destined, collectively to learn, and learning through responsibility is a natural outcome of a natural life. It is up to you now, collectively, to change the game. To change the outcome of your world’s future. What kind of world do you wish to create? What kind of world do you want to incarnate on? One of suffering or growth through learning? It is your choice.
We leave you now with these words:
If you decide to learn through growth then grow you will, even if this is challenging. But if you decide to grow through suffering this is also what you will create. But remember, you are all connected and, as light-workers, your lives effect others. What do you want for the world you live in? Choose now.
Do the hard work of Love and you will grow. Hate and you will not. We leave it up to you.
Adonai.
