Earthly Magic?

Recently I started reading a book titled Earth Magic by Steven D. Farmer. It’s about ancient Shamanic wisdom.  I read something that really intrigues me. Steven writes, (and I’ve heard this before) that the fundamentals of Shamanism can be found though out many Indigenous cultures, even though these cultures have never made contact with one another.  I’ve been tumbling this statement in my head for days now.  That would mean that we would there is a connective energy in order for people from around the world to come up with a common thought. Right off the bat, I’m thinking….”so that would mean, if I think of something funny and laugh…..then is my essence of happiness sending out vibes and making someone else happy? Around the world, imagine that.

He goes on to say it’s through our senses, including our sixth sense, which nature communicates with us in each and every moment, both in form and spirit. Our job is to open our senses to see, hear and feel so that we can be guided by her promptings.  Now with this in mind, it leads me to believe that if the communication between us is mainly through the energies that surround us, then surely everything in nature is picking up on it as well. Have you ever watched the movie “What the Bleep?” It’s a film about Quantum Physics. It’s very interesting and mind bending. There is a short segment in it that shows ice crystals being formed and how much more beautiful they are if you talk to them.  Astonishing!

So if it’s has been proven that you can stimulate your plants with talking and touching they will grow bigger and stronger. Then would it make sense that nature could be doing the same to us? Could they be sending out their vibes and we are missing it? Did our ancestors communicate with nature? According to their belief systems they did. They had a name for every spirit or God in their lives. Could they feel the energies within everything they came in contact with?  Like in the song Colors of the Wind.

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers.

The heron and the otter are my friends

And we are all connected to each other

In a circle, in a hoop that never ends.

     Think of these things the next time you are out in nature.

Then keep your eyes open and your heart full of love and the magic will appear.

About Tree Gremlins

I discovered Tree Gremlins standing just outside the family room of a local mansion. As old as it is, I wonder what kind of things it has seen and felt around the families and children that lived there. To me it looks like it has been very happy. The one thing to remember with tree spirits is that they don’t stay forever. With every years growth, old spirits leave and new one get a chance to shine. Sit with a tree today. Who knows what you’ll discover.
