Small One Under the Sky

While most of my students want to learn to speak telepathically with animals, it is also possible to have telepathic conversations with trees and other forms of life.

This spring, I offered a new course in telepathic communication called “Communication with Trees.”

For this class, each student was asked to find a Tree Guide, a tree willing to be their primary teacher for the entire 5-week course.  Everyone found their Tree Guide quite easily, so the course began.

One of the students, Lisa Hart, had a Tree Guide who called herself Small One Under the Sky.   Small One shared with Lisa that she communicates with stars.

Small One Under the Sky

I live on a “tree lined street” in Chicago. No forests here, and my teacher tree is located close to my apartment building, on the strip of land between the sidewalk and the street.

She is a maple tree and wanted to be called by her nickname, Small One Under the Sky. Her energy feels youthful and light, yet loving and maternal.

When we talk I feel as if I am inside the tree, that her trunk is hollow and I am inside it, sometimes standing up, sometimes feeling embraced or as if I’m sitting on her “lap.”

Over the course of perhaps four conversations, we talked about her work. Small One Under the Sky’s purpose is to hear and transmit the music/lyrics/messages of the stars. I said, “Oh, I just assumed that all trees can hear the stars.” She replied, “Most trees can hear the stars, but I understand their language.” (It would be like me hearing Russian. I would hear sounds, but not words. She hears the words.)

I asked Small One how she does it, and she replied that she expands her consciousness and “catches” the messages in her branches. (I’m thinking, sort of like a recorder.)

I asked how she transmits the information. She rubs her leaves and branches together in certain ways, and uses the wind to blow “language particles” from her leaves and bark. Also, the motion of her branches, leaves, twigs, are all used to communicate, to write on the wind. I got the impression that it’s the wind that carries her messages.

She asked if I’d like to hear the stars. Oh, you bet! It felt as if she flew into the sky and carried me with her. She said, “You will hear it differently than I do, because you’re a human and I’m a tree and our senses are different.” I heard very high, sharp, crystalline music, and very low, growly, rumbly tones, but nothing in between. It was lovely!

She was curious, so I invited her to share my consciousness so she could experience how humans speak and hear and see.

Small One Under the Sky wanted me to remember that the stars are there all the time. We humans can’t see them during the day, but that doesn’t mean they stop existing then. They are always there.

In a different session I asked her what kind of information she gets. She said that it is mostly about things that affect the planet as a whole — wars, diseases, weather patterns. As I write this I’m realizing I had a feeling that all of these are taking place slightly in the future, what we would call the future. And the purpose is to help the trees prepare for what’s coming.

Small One also relays songs. And parties, festivals, celebrations, the feel of them and what is being celebrated. And she receives information on what is happening on different levels of the universe, what I would classify as astral, mental, causal, and soul levels. “As above, so below,” if there is conflict, peace, discovery, healing occurring in the non-physical, it is likely to eventually manifest in the physical, or to be reflected there.

At one point Small One Under the Sky offered me a healing. I accepted and saw a brilliant yellow flare coming toward me. She said that she uses star energy to heal, and I was surprised that it was yellow. She said, “Well, the Sun is a star. For different people it will be different kinds of star energy. For you, it’s the Sun.”

I asked her what she disliked the most about her job, and she replied that there is no one physically close by to teach her. There used to be, but he died, so now all her teaching comes from trees that are far away.

I recognized her image of the tree that died. It was an old, triple-trunked tree about 20-30 feet away. It had been my favorite tree in the neighborhood, and a couple of years ago the city tore it down, saying it was dying and might fall onto the house nearby. The householders were distraught, crying. Everyone I spoke with about it loved and missed that tree. I told my neighbor, “that was my favorite tree”, and she said, “it was everybody’s favorite tree.” So clearly, he was an important part of the neighborhood.

When I asked Small One what she liked most about her job, she said “relating to different species”, meaning the stars.

There is so much more to learn from her! I keep thinking of things to ask long after our talk is over. I am really looking forward to more talks.

Lisa had many other conversations with Small One on a variety of topics.  Speaking with trees is fun, exciting, and educational.

Giant Oak with no leaves.

August 2017

My eyes take in the beauty of the trees behind my house, only to notice that the giant oak tree living there is losing it’s leaves … in August.  This shouldn’t happen until October.  Something is wrong, but I push the thought away.  I don’t want to believe it.

That fall, I ask my “tree guy”, J.P.. to come by and look at the tree.  He shows me where it was struck by lightening.

Lightening mark going down the trunk.

Lightening scarred the trunk.

J.P and I discussed taking down the huge tree.  We both assumed the tree was dead.

“Take only the canopy,” I said.  “Leave the trunk for the insects and other animals.”

J.P. agreed and said he’d get back to me in a few weeks, but as autumn continued, he was busy and I was busy, and so the tree remained untouched.

Spring 2018

I watched the trees in my back-yard forest begin to grow leaves and somehow, deep in my heart, I expected the Oak Tree, too, to produce leaves.  It didn’t.

I felt disappointed.  Still, I held off calling J.P. to come back, as life had brought me many other challenges that required my attention and finances.

All summer long, I keep watch on the Oak Tree.  I didn’t want to take it down.  I wanted it to be alive, but my analytical self said the tree must be dead.

This tree is huge, more than 60 feet tall, and the canopy is also huge.  If it should fall towards the house in a storm, other trees would be damaged and it would hit the house.  If it fell in any other direction, other trees would be hurt.

Still, I waited.  I couldn’t seem to get myself to move forward on this.  I didn’t know why I was holding back.

One day, I prayed to the Nature Spirits to take care of removing the tree.  I let the whole thing go for awhile.

Fall, 2018

Fullest, tall image of the Oak.

Majestic Oak

I contacted J.P. a few weeks ago, and he agreed to come take care of the tree.

J.P. climbs trees like the old-time tree cutters.  He’s newly retired from his day job, and to save his back, he’s bought a machine with will lift him most of the way up a very tall tree.

Yesterday, October 16, J.P was supposed to come to take down the oak tree canopy.

At 10:30 a.m., I returned from a dental appointment, and there sat J.P.’s machine.  The tree looked untouched.  No sign of J.P. or the fellow who helps him.

At 3:30 p.m., I left for an evening program.  Still no word from J.P.

Arriving home at 8 p.m. I found a message on my answering machine from J.P.

Nedda, I tried to work on the tree, but I kept feeling that I would be injured or killed if I did so.  In 40 years of doing tree work, I never felt anything like this.  So I figured I might need to climb the tree instead of using the lift.

I decided to come back tomorrow morning and climb the tree.  So tried to take off one branch that would make the climb easier, but my chain saw with a new, sharp blade, gave off sparks and the branch refused to be cut.  I’ve never had that happen before.

Maybe if I climb the tree tomorrow I can do the job for you.

I telephoned J.P. immediately.  I told him,

This confirms what I’ve been feeling off and on all summer long … that I shouldn’t have you take down this tree … that maybe it’s still alive, or if it’s not, the nature spirits will take care of it coming down … that maybe it will still grow some leaves.

But with all the terrible storms and high winds that come through here, my fear motivated me to have you come and take down the canopy.  Now, I feel justified not only in waiting, but in exploring this whole matter more deeply with the tree itself.

J.P. was relieved that I wasn’t complaining about him not doing the job.  He was grateful that I understood how he had felt, although was surprised by what I told him..

I was relieved that J.P. had given me confirmation of my own feelings about the tree.

So I said,

Tomorrow morning, when I sit for meditation, I’m going to call in all the nature spirits and find out what’s going on.  When you get here to pick up your machine, I’ll have more information for you.

As I got ready for bed, I heard a message, and I could feel the truth of it in my stomach:

The tree is alive.

This morning, October 17, 2018

The base of the Oak's trunk.

The base of the Oak’s trunk.  Look at all those roots.

At 6 a.m. this morning, there was just enough daylight for me to go into the woods safely (avoiding bears and other wildlife) to see what I could feel from the tree while in it’s presence.

I put my hands against the trunk and tuned in.

Immediately, I could feel the tree’s life force.  It was, indeed, alive.

Returning to the house, I sat down with my journal and called in everyone who might have information or creative ideas or energies and healing skills to offer.  It felt appropriate to call in all of the beings listed below.

The tree is so huge, I knew I’d need a lot of help to hold the energies to make a shift.

Rosalyn Bruyere, founder of the Healing Light Center Church of Los Angeles says that in energy healing, “The biggest aura wins.”

Well, that tree definitely had a bigger aura than I have, so called in all the assistance I could find.

  • The Overlighting Deva of my property.
  • The Overlighting Deva of my street and of the town in which I live.
  • Pan, the being who is responsible for all the nature spirits.
  • Mother Earth.
  • Father Sun.
  • Great Spirit.
  • My I Am Presence
  • The Spirits of the 4 directions (East, South, West, and North)
  • The Elemental Spirits of Earth, Wind, Fire, Water, and Ether.
  • MAP (Masters’ Medical Assistance Program) healers who are experts in healing trees.
  • The Spirit of Standing Ones (trees) and of the Oak Trees in particular.
  • Great Grandfather Sycamore and Great Grandmother Sycamore, two ancient tree beings who live at the south end of my town
  • The Ent (tree shepherds) of the Oaks.

    Image of an Ent from The Hobbit

    Ent, a Tree Shepherd.

  • “Radagast the Brown”, a wizard from Middle Earth

    Radagast the Brown from The Hobbit.

    Radagast showed me how to pull the energy of the lightning from the injured tree spirit.

  • Gurumayi (Swami Chidvilasanda), my guru.
  • Amma Karunamayi (incarnation of the Divine Mother living on earth right now).
  • Mother Nature, Lakshmi (Goddess of Abundance), White Buffalo Calf Woman
  • Spirit of the Red Wood Forests, some of the oldest and wisest trees on the planet.

I opened myself to receive a message, and got very strong, very emphatic replies in a very powerful voice that seemed to be more than one speaker.

The Oak Tree must remain.  Key to balance and harmony in these small woods.  Honored teacher and friend, wisest of the wise.

We beseech you to leave this tree alone.

I asked, “Can you help me understand whether the tree is dead or alive?”

It wants to live.  It still lives.  It is deeply wounded.  It struggles to heal.  It must be helped.

IT MUST LIVE.

YOU can help it.  You MUST help it.  We will guide you and teach you what to do.

I asked, “Who is it who speaks to me?”

We are the voices of the Forest speaking in chorus.

We are all the trees, even beyond this small patch of remaining forest.

We ask your assistance.

I asked, “Can I speak with the spirit of that individual oak tree?”

Too weak; too ill to speak with you.

We ask on it’s behalf.

So of course, I agreed to help.

Here are the general instructions I received.

  1. Open a vortex on your property to receive and transmute all energies removed from the tree.
  2. Use the large quartz crystal on my alter to siphon off the energy of the lightening strike from the injured Tree Spirit.
  3. Use grounding stones in my pockets to ground me so that the powerful healing energies that must pass through me will not weaken or imbalance me.
  4. Pour structured water that has been programmed for gentleness, self-love, and healing at the base of the tree.
  5. Place the flower petals and liquid offerings from the puja (Indian ceremony) you attended last night to bring the energies of the Divine Mother to the tree for healing.
  6. Place a rose quartz crystal (which I had just found in a drawer the day before and put on my alter) at the base of the tree.
  7. Once you begin the healing, you will be guided in each step.
  8. To complete the healing, male and female chi will have to be balanced.  You need a strong, male who loves trees to assist you.  Ask J.P. to do it.

After writing down all the instructions, I traveled energetically into the tree, into the taproot where the tree spirit lives in the winter.  It was very ill, very uncomfortable, and in pain.  Then I followed instructions for healing.

When J.P. arrived, I was ready to complete the healing.  J.P. agreed to help.

He and I stood on opposite sides of the tree trunk.  I asked him to put his arms around the tree and his full body against it, as I was doing on the other side.  We both stood there for about 10 minutes, intending that our life force would enter the tree to balance it’s male/female energies.

I saw in my mind’s eye that our energies met, intertwined, and then spread upwards to the very top of the tree and down to the tree spirit resting in the taproot.

When we finished, I asked J.P. to share anything he felt comfortable telling me.

He said, “The tree feels totally different today from yesterday.  It feels content.”

I smiled, thanked him, and we hugged.

“I’ll let you know how the tree is in the spring,” I told him.  “I fully expect to see leaves sprout.”  We both smiled.

Cooperation from the Standing Ones

Two Trees Leave the Earth Plane

After the devastating storm of October 30, 2011, many trees were damaged, to put it mildly.

Tree damage.

Unbelievable damage.

Yesterday, the tree service man who takes care of my trees, JP, came to take down two very large oak trees standing within 4 feet of the corner of my house.  These two trees stood so close to each other that their roots are totally intertwined.  This means that if one comes down, they both have to come down because the remaining tree would be unstable.

JP is a very tall, very handsome man who climbs trees to do his work.  No big equipment for him.  JP communicates with trees.  He feels their energy.  He allows himself to be guided by their messages to him.

Preparation

The day before JP was to come here, I did a sacred ceremony in my back yard.  I called in Mother Earth, Father Sun, the 4 directions, my personal guides, Pan, the Overlighting Deva of the property, the standing ones (trees), and all the other Earth Kingdoms.  I asked permission to remove the trees and offered tobacco that I had prayed over.  When I finished, I touched each of the trees that were to be cut down and said my goodbyes.

The next morning, I went back to the two trees and placed a bit of holy water on each tree’s trunk.  When I touched one tree, it’s energy felt cold by comparison to the energy of the other tree.  Actually, both trees felt different to my touch from the day before.  Both felt less alive – as if the life force of one was gone and of the other, the larger one, was nearly gone.

Tree Removal

JP arrived with his helper and got to work around 9 a.m.  He told me they were going to quit at noon and finish up during the coming week.  So around 11:45 I went outside to see what was happening.

JP said, “I’ve got to tell you some things.  They’re all good things, but I don’t have time to give you the full story now because I have to leave.”

He took me over to the base of the trees.  Both were already completely down.  “Look at this one,” said JP.  “It was really good to take this one down, as it was rotting.”

Sure enough.  JP showed me how the tree where the energy had felt cold was already wet and rotting from the damage last fall, as water had gotten into it.

Then, while still rolling up his ropes, JP pointed to a large oak tree across the yard and along the tree line.  “See that big oak?”  he asked.   “I was up in the bigger tree that had to come down and looking over at that oak and trying to figure out how to drop this tree without damaging the oak.   I thought I had the angle just right, but . . . it was amazing.  That big oak over there caught this tree as it fell.  It didn’t even lose a branch.  It was as if it gently caught it and then allowed it to sink down.  It helped me take this tree down.”

JP was amazed.  I was, too, but I also knew that I had asked all the beings to assist in this process, to make it safe for the men who would be doing it, and to help the spirits of the trees who were leaving.

After JP and his helper finish up on Tuesday, I’ll go outside, do another ceremony, and request assistance to rebalance the yard.

All is in Divine Harmony when we work with Nature.

Namaste,
Nedda
