Taoist Masters observed that trees are tremendously powerful plants. Not only can they absorb carbon dioxide and transform it into oxygen, but they can also absorb negative forces and transform them into good Energy. Trees strongly root with the Earth, and the more rooted the tree, the higher it can extend to Heaven. Trees stand very still, absorbing the Earth’s Energy and the Universal Force from the Heavens. Trees and all plants have the ability to absorb the Light of the Energies and transform it into food; in fact, they depend on light for most of their nourishment, while water and earth minerals make up about 30% of their nutritional intake. Trees are able to live very long lives.
The Tree as Healer and Friend Trees are the largest and most Spiritually advanced plants on Earth. They are constantly in Meditation, and Subtle Energy is their Natural Language. As your understanding of this language grows, you can begin to develop a relationship with them. They can help you open your Energy Channels and cultivate calm, presence, and vitality. You can reciprocate by helping them with their own blockages and devitalized areas. It is a mutually beneficial relationship that needs cultivation.
Choosing a Tree to Work With Throughout history human beings have used all parts of the tree for Healing and Medicine. The best trees for Healing are big trees, especially pines. Pine trees radiate Chi, nourish blood, strengthen nervous systems, and contribute to long lives. They also nurture Souls and Spirits. Pines are the “Immortal Tree.” Early Chinese poetry and painting is full of admiration for pines. Although pine trees are often the best choice, many other trees or plants can be used. The larger trees contain the most Energy. Among the most powerful are trees growing near running water. Some trees feel warmer or hotter than others; some feel cooler or colder than others. Practice distinguishing the varying properties of different trees. You do not need to go far out into the forest to find an appropriate tree to work with. Trees that are used to having people around understand our Energy and are actually more accessible and friendly than those far out in the wilderness. There is a certain size range within which trees are most accessible to human beings. When a tree is too small, it does not have enough Energy to make much of an impression on you. When the tree is too big, you have the opposite problem, so it takes more persistence to get large trees to take an interest in you. As a source of Healing Energy, it is best to choose a large, robust tree from within the accessible size range.
Establishing Communion with a Tree There are certain methods to approaching, interacting with, retreating from and taking leave of a tree. By following specific steps you create a Ritual of Silent Communion that both you and the tree can understand, and so increase the potential for Harmonious Interaction. The steps were derived from observation of the Natural course of events in Subtle Energy Communion, and apply to communion with just about anything: tree, rock, human, or animal, although the following is concerned specifically with trees. First of all, each tree, like each person, has a personality, desires, and a Life of its own. Trees differ widely in their taste for human contact. Some are very generous and want to give you all the Energy you can take. Others are weak or ill and need your comforting and Healing Energy. Some are just friendly Souls who enjoy human company. You can learn and grow by working with all of them. Trees operate on a longer time scale than do human beings. You can help to bridge this gap by returning again and again to the same tree, so that a relationship develops. Visit regularly so that the tree knows when to expect you and can look forward to seeing you. Spiritual communion with trees resembles love more than any other human activity. Let the tree lead you into the wonders of its own inner life.
An old alchemist gave the following consolation to one of his disciples: “No matter how isolated you are and how lonely you feel, if you do your work truly and conscientiously, unknown friends will come and seek you.”
Fear of something is always guaranteed to attract what you fear. The energy of fear attracts like energy and so what you fear becomes what you physically experience. Fear of being without money becomes the circumstances in which you are without money. Fear of being alone, rejected or attacked all become that physical experience unless you deal with the source of the energy which manifests these things - YOU.
In the year 1905, Albert Einstein proved that we can break matter down into smaller components and that, when we do, we move beyond the Material Realm and into a Realm in which everything is Energy. This is the Law of Vibration, a Law of Nature that states that nothing rests, everything moves, and everything vibrates.
The difference between the Manifestations of the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual result simply from different levels of Vibrating Energy, or Frequencies. So, while the feelings of fear, grief and despair vibrate at a very low frequency, the feelings of love, joy and gratitude vibrate much quicker. The most common unit of measure for Frequency is the Hertz, which is one vibrational cycle per second. All the physical matters are composed of Vibration.
Although most Frequencies exist outside of our normal range of Perception, all can be perceived as both Colours and Sounds. There are seven colours in a rainbow and seven notes in the musical scale. So the colour blue is also heard as the musical key of D, which vibrates at 587 Hz. But what is most interesting is that, if a Frequency is vibrating fast enough, it’s emitted as a colour of Light. If we wanted to convert Sound to Light, we would simply raise its frequency forty octaves. This results in a Vibration in the trillions of cycles per second. So, if a pianist could press a key way above the eighty-eight keys that exist on a piano, that key would produce Light.
The philosophical and scientific basis for this Law of Vibration can be found in Quantum Physics and in Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Energy is related to matter and the speed of Light. When two frequencies are brought together, the lower will always rise to meet the higher. This is the principle of Resonance. Using this principle, we can actually increase the speed at which the molecules in our bodies vibrate, through our thoughts of love, joy and gratitude. When atoms slow down, third dimensional matter is created; when they speed up, the higher dimensions of Consciousness can be reached. And the higher our Consciousness is raised, the closer to Spirit we become.
Polarity Therapy is a four-part approach to balancing the Energetic patterns of the body. Based on principles developed by Randolph Stone, Polarity Therapy combines bodywork, nutrition, stretching postures and attitudinal counseling to free Energy blockages and establish a Natural Energy flow for Self-Healing.
Stone formulated his therapy based on the underlying principle of wireless currents in, around and through the body. It is this subtle Energy flow that gives Life and through which the Soul functions. Quite simply, disease occurs when the flow is disrupted. Polarity Therapy, rather than treating disease, is focused on reestablishing the Natural Balance of this flow, which in turn allows Healing to take place.
Polarity Therapy practitioners concern themselves with the positive, negative and neuter states of the Energetic wiring, flowing vertically and horizontally, and spiraling from the top of the body downward and from the center outward. The center from which the Energy flows and to which it returns, is considered the Source of the Energy and this triune action is what is required to keep the flow in motion.
According to Stone, this circuitry flows in all aspects of Life and is a basic principle in Nature. Everything has a middle with opposing ends, in constant communication and relationship. In this law of relationship, there is attraction (pleasure/sensory) and repulsion (pain/motor). Blockage is more likely to occur in the negative (outgoing) flow. It is when the outgoing force is unable to remove from the system “unassimilable physical, emotional or mental material” that disruption in the circuitry occurs and the system becomes dysfunctional.
