Do Tree Spirits Cry When A Tree Is Cut Down? – by Tana Hoy
One of the memories I will never get out of my head happened when I was in junior high. I was walking along the road when I heard a loud, mechanical noise.
Looking for its source, I found a group of men, and one of them was operating a chainsaw.
They were cutting one of the oldest trees in our neighborhood down. As the machine came in contact with the bark of the tree, I felt this immense sense of pain and sadness come over me.
My clairvoyance and clairaudience was going crazy! I was very young, so part of me did not fully understand what it was. Years later, I discovered that the feeling I felt then, came from the very tree those men were cutting. I was hearing the cries and screams of the tree as they were cutting it down.
What Are Tree Spirits?
Spirits of the trees live in the tree itself. Every tree has a spirit, and they come in all forms and shapes. Think of the trees in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. The Ents in the story very closely resemble real tree spirits. As spirits, tree spirits are extremely wise, as a result of their age and nature.
Being literally rooted to the ground, tree spirits are fully in tune with the spirits of the Earth. As such, they have access to the core of the planet’s energies. A lot of people and civilizations hundreds of years ago have recognized the wisdom of the trees.
As I’ve mentioned, tree spirits come in all forms and sizes, depending on how old the tree is. Some trees in Japan and in the Amazon rainforest have been alive for thousands of years. I can just imagine what wisdom the spirits in those trees hold, being alive since the dawn of our existence.
What Happens When A Tree Is Cut Down?
Tree spirits however, are not immortal. They are created just like people. The only difference between man and tree spirits is the fact that they exist in the spiritual world, while we exist in the physical world. However, tree spirits are connected to the physical plane as well, since their existence is fully connected to physical trees.
This means that when a tree gets cut, the spirit in it suffers greatly, and it may even die. As a psychic who is greatly attuned to nature spirits, this breaks my heart, since thousands of trees get cut without regard every day.
I can only hope that man will start looking at nature, and all the things living in it, as living, breathing organisms. After all, without them, there would be no you or me.
