It is a thrilling journey to set forth in the forest and to experience your mood shifting from mind-entangled problems to curiosity and pleasure. Joy, energy, happiness and insights arise. Scientists have been studying the physical effects of consciously being in trees, and have found that within a few minutes our immune function is increased, stress and blood pressure drop, mood and concentration improve and so much more.
I have found that each tree species transmits a unique energetic quality. My new "discovery" is the Black Tupelo (in photos). On my second visit i experienced the most complete quiet coming from this tree to me. I had been craving quiet. In fact, the little video I attempted did not work as it was silent. So very cool.
