Tree magic

Everything has a spirit everything has their own energy from the smallest of ant, to the big elephant to the killer whale. From the trees to the rock to the water that you drink it all has it energy and it all has it magic and lessons that it wishes to teach you. This is just a basic view of tree magic from personal experience.

What is tree magic? Almost every native culture has some belief about tree magic theCeltic Druids seen them as a source of healing and blessings, Aboriginal Australia worked with the leaves of the trees to help them with sore throats and other sickness or is seen as a blessing from which fruit would grow from and a source of food in other cultures. Even today in some practice oils and herbs are being put to work to help add the energy in spells that witches create.

Wands: making our own wand is a form of tree magic since it had came from a tree or have fallen off. There is a reason why you must never take a branch off a tree and use it as a wand without its permission if placed in a room it can be sent as nightmares to a person.

Anxious/ depression: herbs, oils and incense are a great form of brining healing to those who battle anxious and depression it brings a sense of peace and connection it also helps ground the person and brings a sense of strength. (If you go through any mental illness please remember to speak to medical professionals or close family and friends.)

Ground: if your a person whom has trouble grounding themselves then trees are a great way to help teach you to ground. By simply being near the tree or leaning your back against it with the intention to ground you won't end up feeling out of body. You could also picture being next to a tree during meditation to help you ground and come back to Mother Earth.

Mediation excuse: this is something which I had found out earlier on my path it is a working process and a slow build. You can either find a tree in a park or in a garden and go up to it every day and speak or sing to it. You can introduce yourself if you wish to and do this over for several weeks. Find a stick which has dropped on the ground and sit beside that tree during meditation one day. Place the stick into the dirt and close your eyes and let yourself be and listen. You may find something surprising that you hadn't been able to notice before.

During this process you and the tree will form a bond of sorts and friendship you may noticed that your more interesting in either writing and drawing sudden ideas which has a peaceful energy to them. 90 percent of the time you will be channeling information from that tree.

An amazing post!

It's no secret that Tree's are going to be here long after we are gone and they were here long before we were, and for that reason Tree's are symbolic, they symbolize knowledge, beauty, wisdom, change, and shelter.

A tree can offer many things, things you stated. They offer help in providing wands, shelter, protection, medicine.

Though let us remember that, as you said, everything does have a spirit. And for this reason, we must ask before we take. One of the biggest issues with working with nature spirits is that we tend to take and not ask nor leave an offering, which is both very rude and can backfire.

One of the ways I connect with a Tree and ask is by;

Place your hand on the tree for a better connection and introduce yourself and right away you should get that acceptance feeling or that feeling of leave me alone .And ask the tree if you can take something that the tree has.And please dont take it and not leave an offering, thats rude. It's always good to develop a bond with the Tree before you start asking.

Treat the tree as you would a new friend, you would not ask for things when you just met someone, that's considered rude.

Always leave an offering to show your thankfulness. If you want to consistently work with the tree leave offerings constantly to help build a stronger relationship.

I loved the post!

What sort of things should we leave as offerings for the trees?

Thank you for your lovely post and to the last comment.

Offering can be as simple as picking up trash in that area or giving the tree some water. As long as the offering does not harm the environment. You may not want to offer crystals though I've heard some trees are a little fussy when being offered crystals.
