“I believe you may have a strong connection to plants.” I said to my friend as I sat across her at a vegetarian restaurant.
I wasn’t sure why I said this but I had a strong intuitive feeling that this was true. After over a decade of testing out my intuitive hunches, I finally came to the conclusion that I should really trust myself because my accuracy rate was pretty high.
Besides getting the hunch that my friend had a strong connection with the nature around her, my intuition also showed me how I was going to help her.
A few weeks later we made the trek out to a beautiful lake surrounded by beautiful trees. We picked a spot by the lake and sat down. When my friend told me she was ready to proceed, I told her to choose a tree or a plant nearby she would like to connect with.
She picked a tree beside her and I trusted my instincts and guided her to connect with her inner wisdom. Within minutes, my friend felt the Being that was the tree.
“What do you feel like?” I asked.
“It feels like my hips are very heavy and I am deeply anchored into the ground.” She said.
“How far do the roots go?” I asked.
“It goes all the way down to the edge of the lake…the roots of every tree are all interconnected together! So above the ground, the trees may seem separate from each other, but under the ground, they are all connected!”
“If the tree can tell you something now, a message that it has for you, what would it say?” I asked.
“The tree said ‘we are all One’.” My friend replied with tears streaming down her face.
She was not just getting a message, but she was experiencing the Oneness of the entire forest and all the life around her. There was a sense of awe in her voice when she spoke. It seemed like she deeply felt how loving and connected the trees were to one another. The forest was not a lonely place, it was a very vibrant place full of love, connection, and a sense of community between all the plants and animals.
After my friend shared her insights with me, I realized that the forest is very symbolic of life as a spiritual being in a physical body. The physical body is like the individual trees in the forest, seemingly separate from one another. The roots are like the spiritual being that inhabits the body — deeply connected to the souls of other beings.
We are all connected to each other at the roots of our soul, even if we seem separate to each other.
