The Tree Spirits

tree 1

I love trees. I always have and have always thought of them as having a personality. Up until I was eight years old, we lived in a house with a huge lime tree in the back garden. I used to spend hours out there sitting under it or jumping along the crazy paving stones that my father had laid out underneath it. We also had trees in the street. There was a little saying that we had at school. For every leaf that you caught as it fell from the tree, you would be granted one lucky day so I used to stand outside catching as many leaves as I could.

I have always taken note of trees near to where I live or work. They are like people in the neighbourhood. It is nice to see them as kind of friend.

Magical people say that the dryad is the spirit of the tree. It is seen as a living being linked to the tree and growing with it. But this spirit is also is an entity that is multidimensional , which lives in the Astral dimension as well as in the mundane world. When someone prunes a branch  off a tree or one falls , the dryad spirit is still in the wood. magical people use wands which are small pieces of wood that come from a tree so you could say that he spirit of the wand is part of the tree’s consciousness. Some people believe that trees withdraw their lifeforce  from a branch when they sense it is going to be cut. But it is more likely that the spirit stays there in some degree and can be awoken by enchantment when the branch or piece of  is made into a wand. Different trees have different properties and myths. I will do a series of posts on the different trees and their spiritual nature.
