Connection with trees
Hi today I got relaxed and I took a walk. While I was walking across park I tried something. I touched the tree with one palm, I close my eyes and I tried to somehow connect with three to see what happend.
I really swear that I felt differently, the vibrations im my body has changed. It didn't happen when I touched the dead tree or if I touched the wall of building.
I am going to try it tomorrow again. Do you have any experience with this? I cannot somehow explain it and I don't know how I can explore this more.

Yes! When I go to the park, or even the rooftop garden here, I can feel the energy of the trees, like the vibration of them. But more of a soft and whole feeling, not an acute sense like you may have had.
I also get a sense of the energy or spirit of plants, even fruit and vegetables, and how they do not want to be cooked or even stored in human made things, or even plants that might not like to be kept indoors.
If you are really sensitive to plants, maybe you have a special connection to them too?

To explore it more have the innocence of a child and try no to label the experience with your mind. Just connect to a tree and see what you feel. Then connect to another one. Maybe there will be some insects you can connect to next.

Hi Rajec -
Trees each have distinct personalities, like humans.
Whenever I moved I would introduce myself to the trees around me. Some are funny, some are stoic, some don't give a rat's patootie.
We have even had a vain tree (Well, she was pretty). My favorite so far is a tree we had in the backyard in AZ. It told me that it really likes human contact and even invited the kids to climb it (which they did wholeheartedly).
One of the exercises I have in my classes here is to ask people to go out, sit with their back against a tree, introduce themselves and then be still to 'hear' the tree. Students seem to really enjoy this exercise.
"Listening" can be done with plants too - their energy/communication is not as strong to our senses as trees are, but it can be done - though you really shouldn't sit against a plant...touching a leaf or steam is fine.

I used to like to sit leaned against a tree for 10 minutes, and feel majorly refreshed.
Looking back, I'm not sure if the tree was really doing that to me, or if I was insane, at the time.. But I definitely used to feel the way you do
