Hello

Thanks, FoxTracks. Building a relationship with any natural element should be the foundation to connecting with the spirit. I've had moments of hugging trees before but I was reluctant to do so because of the public eye. There's this old tree in my neighbor dying off from old age and splitting in half. I was thinking to myself - it's time to go. Gave the tree a few words of gratitude. And like I said, a hug came to mind. But I hesitated. Instead, I held out my hand and placed it on the trunk of the tree. I've noticed tree sap is oozing out from the tree which I think is not a good sign. Anyway, the tree will have to be cut down to avoid any injury or property damage.

On an unrelated note, I've had seen many blue jays and cardinals on that day. Even had the opportunity to spot a white-tailed deer. So I was pretty happy about that. Definitely felt connected with Mother Earth. I really enjoyed going into the woods. I might head out there again when the temperature starts to warm up.

I have yet to see the movie Avatar.

I agree, that it does. I think its more peaceful when other's aren't around, cause sometimes if someone were to pass you could pick up on something that could invade the peace that you seek by connecting with the trees. I think tree's are compassionate and understanding, that they're an extension to mother earth thru their roots. And it was nice that you felt a shift and felt better after expressing your thoughts.

The movie avatar does have a good theme for showing connection but there are also sad parts in it too.

Hello

Thank you, Aethera. It was pretty tranquil when no one was around. Escaping from everyday routines and from society is wonderful.

I think there will be five films on Avatar. They already announced the sequel - so that should give me time to watch the first movie.

You're welcome Lepus,

It is. I think what makes it tranquil and soothing is cause one is using the divine feminine as a way of connecting with Mother Earth

I've only seen one of the films, tho I still love the movie.

Currently reading Celtic Tree Magic and am loving it. Usually I work with fallen bark and branches/leaves for earthy elementals, because I’m so drawn to them, but would love to start working alongside of them. Definitely a helpful thread :)
