Many people all over the earth have contacted us about how they are now working with the trees. It’s clear that January 25 was a busy day around the world. In Latvia people sang to the trees, in Lithuania they wrapped and empowered them, and in India, Brazil, Hawaii and all over the earth people gathered to connect the trees to the Net of Light. We at Net of Light are impressed by the dedication of these people, their creativity in connecting with the trees, the loving reach of this family of light. And as we heard from all of them, it made me wonder, “What’s next, Grandmothers? What shall we do next?” So, I asked them.
“Tune in to us at all times,” they responded. “You must go higher now,” they said, “farther than you have imagined. Now is the time for that and we will guide you. You have been moving at a slow, steady pace for a while,” they said and gave me a meaningful look. “Yes, Grandmothers,” I said, “I’ve felt that slow pace and sometimes it’s felt so slow that I’ve wondered if it was movement at all.” “We know, we know,” they laughed, “but now the climbing as well as the learning will be steeper.”
“Okay, Grandmothers,” I said, “Please teach us.” And, as I waited with anticipation, they said, “Some of the new women who are coming to work with us now will be important to what you will do next. With their open hearts and minds, they are not afraid. And they will be followed by others too who are also unafraid. People who WANT to soar,” they smiled, “people who want to fly free.” “Yes, Grandmothers,” I replied.
“But what,” I repeated, “is the next step?” “You are bonding now with the trees,” they answered, “you are reuniting with the tree family. Continue to do that. Continue to spend time with the trees, listening and receiving from them as you in turn, honor them.” “Yes, Grandmothers,” I said, “we will.”
“The life force in the trees will harmonize with your own life force,” they said, “and, when that happens, you will see things differently. You will understand more and understand in a different way than you have before. Let the trees teach you,” they nodded. “Call on them and let them know you’re an eager learner, tell them how much you want to learn.” “I will, Grandmothers,” I said.
“Each day open to a tree,” they said. “Go up to it and touch it, love it and call the Net of Light to link with it. Then, after a few minutes ask it, ‘What can I do for you?’” And then, ‘What do you want me to know?’ Make this contact with a tree a habit, a new way of living,” they said. “This communion with a tree will open up a world for you; it will dissolve your human arrogance and awaken you to the wellspring of connection with all trees. Take this task on,” the Grandmothers said, “and fulfill it faithfully. Begin, and you will soon see the difference in your life.”
“Yes, Grandmothers,” I said, and then I realized that they wanted me to start this process now. So, I got up, went outside and wrapped my arms around a smooth-barked tree in the front garden. The afternoon sun was beating down on the tree as well as on my back, and, as I felt its heat, I became aware that sharing the sun with a tree like this was a certain kind of good I hadn’t experienced before. The tree and I were feeling the same thing.
The ficus tree was magnifying the sun’s power for me while I magnified it for the tree. I stayed with my arms twined around its limbs for a long while, feeling the peace of our bond. There we were, together in the warmth of the sun, magnifying the blessing of nature for one another. And, although I didn’t realize it until much later, our shared embrace had created a mergence and this was the answer to the questions I’d asked the tree.
‘What can I do for you?’ and ‘What do you want me to know?’ had been answered in the most personal way. As we embraced, we merged our energy, the tree and I, and together we became part of the flow of nature. And become part of the flow of nature is what we are to do next. I’ll be spending a lot of time with the trees.
