How to absorb energy from trees

Trees are the largest and most evolved plants on Earth on the spiritual plane. They meditate at all times and subtle energy is their natural language. As your command of this language increases, you will be able to begin to build a relationship with them. They will help you open energy channels and cultivate calm, presence and vitality. You, in turn, can help them with their blockages and weak areas. It is a mutually beneficial relationship that needs to be cultivated.

Taoist Masters warned that trees are extremely powerful plants. Not only do they absorb carbon dioxide to transform it into oxygen, but they also absorb negative forces and transform them into healthy energy. The trees are very well rooted in the ground and the more rooted the tree, the higher it extends. The trees stand very still and absorb the Energy of the Earth and the Universal Force of the Heavens.

Choosing the trees to work with

Throughout history, humans used all parts of the tree as a healing remedy. The best trees to heal are large ones, especially pines. Pine trees radiate Chi energy, nourish the blood, strengthen the nervous systems and contribute to prolonging life. They also feed the soul and spirit. Pine trees are the "Immortal Trees". Ancient Chinese poetry and painting are full of admiration for pine trees.

While pine trees are often the best choice, many other trees or plants can be used. Large trees contain the most energy. Among the most powerful are the trees that grow next to running water. Some are warmer or colder than others. Practice distinguishing the various properties of different trees.

  1. Cypress and cedar trees reduce heat and nourish Yin energy.
  2. Willows help eliminate unhealthy winds, release excessive moisture from the body, reduce high blood pressure and strengthen the urinary system and bladder.
  3. Elms calm the mind and strengthen the stomach.
  4. Maple trees chase away unhealthy winds and help ease pain.
  5. White acacias help eliminate internal heat and balance heart temperature.
  6. Banyans cleanse the heart and help remove moisture from the body.
  7. Cinnamons eliminate the cold from the heart and abdomen.
  8. Firs help eliminate bruises, reduce swelling and heal broken bones faster.
  9. Hawthorns help with digestion, strengthen the intestines and reduce blood pressure.
  10. Birch trees help remove heat and humidity from the body and detoxify it.
  11. Plums nourish the spleen, stomach, pancreas and calm the mind.
  12. Fig trees remove excess heat from the body, increase saliva, nourish the spleen and help stop diarrhea.
  13. Ginkgos help strengthen the bladder and relieve urinary problems in women.

You don't have to go too far into the woods to look for an appropriate tree to work with. Trees that are used to having people around understand our energy and are actually more approachable and friendly than those far away in the forest. City parks and suburban backyards are filled with powerful, approachable trees that would love to have closer relationships with the humans who dominate their environment.

There is a certain size limit for the trees most accessible to humans. If the tree is too small, it doesn't have enough energy to impress you. If it is too big, the problem is the opposite, that is, it will take more time to become interested in large trees. As a source of healing energy, it is best to choose a large and robust tree within the range of accessible sizes. For humorous interaction, it is best to choose a small to medium-sized tree. While you don't have to climb the tree to establish a relationship, it really does open up a whole new world. Climb gently and carefully so as not to damage it.

c. Establish communion with a tree

There are certain methods for approaching, interacting with, and moving away from a tree. By following a few specific steps you can create a silent communion rite that both you and the tree can understand and thus increase the

potential of harmonious interaction. The steps come from observing the natural course of events in the communion of subtle energy and are valid for communion with almost anything: tree, rock, human being or animal, if you saw the following steps correspond specifically to trees.

First of all, each tree, like each person, has a personality, desires and life of its own. Trees differ widely in their taste for human contact. Some are very generous and want to give all the energy they absorb. Others are weak or sick and need your restorative energy. Some are simply friendly souls who enjoy the company of man. Others are quite indifferent to men. You can learn and grow by working with all of them. Try to be open and respectful rather than pressuring them to serve your purposes. In this way, trees will provide you with more than just another source of Chi energy: friendship, humorous expression, and love.

Trees accumulate on a longer time scale than humans. You can help close this gap by returning to the same tree again and again so that a relationship is established. Visit periodically so the tree knows when you will be coming and can wait for you. You will probably notice very clearly that the tree really misses you when it disappears for a longer period of time than usual.

Spiritual communion with trees, of all human activities, is the one that most resembles sexual union. As such, there should be a touch of sensuality and tenderness. You don't always have to handle the situation. Allow yourself to relax and melt into communion. Let the tree lead you to the wonders of your inner life. Working with trees in this way can help release sexual frustration. You will likely find that some of the practices presented here can be easily adapted for use during sexual intercourse.

The best time of day to practice with a tree is during the morning until noon.

  1. Assume a posture. Stand or sit two or three meters in front of the tree.
  2. Hug a tree. Relax and focus. Feel your limits blur. Allow yourself to be more perceptive and somewhat vulnerable, prepared to communicate with the tree. Feel your energy field open like a flower without emitting or absorbing energy, just open and available (Figure 2.30)

 Of welcome. Extend your arms and expose the palms of your hands to the tree. Extend your energy toward the tree in a friendly "offering" attitude. When the tree responds by extending its energy towards you, accept it, breathe in to take it into the body with a "welcome" attitude. Use your mind and eyes as follows: With the bottom of your eyes, focus on the tip of your nose. With the top of your eyes, look at the palms and the tree.

Let your intuition guide you as you respond to the tree again with another “offering” gesture. Make several of these exchanges. Take time and feel what happens.
Absorb the Chi energy with the left palm, mind and the top of the eyes.

  1. Parallel Reading. Remain centered on yourself, neither approaching nor retreating, and observe the subtle relationship between you and the tree. Use contemplative concentration to become absorbed in your connection to the tree without actively trying to change or analyze what is happening. Do not try to deepen or diminish the communion. Control your own energy and observe the tree as it controls its energy and observes you. This is known as Parallel Reading. This neutral state can occur several times during a session at deep and not so deep levels of intimacy.
  2. Attract and stay together. Let the energy field between you and the tree intensify, thicken and contract to bring you closer and hold you together. There may or may not be physical movement. The feeling is that the two are wrapped in a cocoon of energy while exposing their hearts more and more to the other. Finally, they embrace each other in a hug.

This approach often happens spontaneously as the offering and welcoming intensifies into circularity and sharing or as this circularity and sharing deepens.

As with all Healing Tao practices, you need to train your sight and mind to move and guide Chi energy. This will also help you exercise to recognize and be aware of the quality of the tree's energy. Feel the energy of the tree as it enters the body. When you send it to the tree, combine it with the Energy of the Human Plane (Cosmic Particle). Feel how the energy returning to you from the tree has improved: it is fresh and healing. Also notice how the quality of the power changes after nine, 18, 24 and 36 cycles.

Move the upper part of the eyes to guide the Chi energy slowly through the inside (Yin side) of the left arm to move it up the left shoulder, the left side of the neck, the left ear to the crown of the head. From here, bring the Chi energy down the right side to the back of the right ear, the right side of the neck, the right shoulder, the inside of the right arm to the palm of the right hand. Project Chi energy outward, make it enter the tree trunk. Absorb it once again in a circle (the Yin Energy Circle): 36 cycles for men and 24 cycles for women.

Reach out to a deeper level. Now begin to exchange energy with the tree on a deeper level. Sharing with the tree on a deeper level means communicating a certain part of your body with a certain part of the tree's body and breathing the energy from one to the other. Circulating now means guiding the energy through a conduit that passes through both bodies and returns to its starting point. You can guide the Chi energy as in the previous point. You will eventually discover that there are several different schemes possible.

8) Inhale and retain so as not to end abruptly. Inhaling and retaining is very important because it prevents you from absorbing more energy from the tree than you can use without reaching imbalance. Also avoid draining too much energy from a small or weak tree or leaving too much of your negative energy unprocessed in that tree. Plus, it seals the connections you made with the tree so the energy doesn't escape into the air once you're gone. All of this contributes to an aesthetically complete meditation and demonstrates respect for the tree. When you feel like enough is enough and you want to begin returning to a normal state of consciousness or a shallower level of communion, try to do it slowly and gradually so as not to alter the beauty of what you have shared. You will feel that little by little you return to yourself, you can separate the energy that belongs to you from the energy of the high and establish the boundary between the two again.

It should be noted at this point that if you still feel a lot of energy in your hands after healing, close the crown point to seal it so that your healing energy does not continue to flow out.
Trees really like communication with man and you will probably have to wait a long time until the tree tells you to go away.

  1. You should gradually divert your attention from contact with the tree and concentrate more on yourself.
  2. As you do so, much of the shared energy will enter your body, so you "push back" the tree energy stream to prevent it from entering, while allowing your human energy to return.
  3. Then, when your polarities are reversed, let the energy of the tree return to you but keep your conscious energy within the body.
  4. After a few exchanges, the tree will understand your intention and begin to cooperate. In a few minutes you will be completely back in your body and ready for closure.
  5. To get rid of a powerful circulation pattern, gradually focus your attention on the umbilical region, the place where you end the meditation. As energy builds up there, let any excess energy flow into the tree.
  6. If the tree attempts to provide you with energy from another point, reject this flow in the manner described above.

In the long run the scheme will cease and you will be able to share the energy with the tree at the chosen point. Now you can separate the energy that belongs to you from that of the tree, to complete the retreat.

When the communion with the tree is very intense, you may have to "go too far away" to withdraw all at once. Instead, after partially breathing in and retaining, continue to circulate and share but not as intensely. Little by little, after repeating these steps several times, you will completely return to yourself.

  1. Closing. Always end with a closing. Closing is a precise and somewhat abrupt gesture that breaks the connection, secures any healing that has taken place, and imparts a feeling of goodwill, all in a second or two. Closing can be a movement, a sound, or simply a change in the subtle energy field, such as clapping your hands or nodding your head. A gentle upward arcing movement of the purio ending with a slight downward punch is very effective. The "Ah" and "Amen" sounds used to end prayers are also examples of closing gestures, such as a firm handshake or a small squeeze at the end of a hug. In addition to these closing gestures, wave goodbye or give the trunk a quick kiss to finish the closing.

Sections 7), 8) and 9) are used to intensify, lighten and finish the exercises explained below and can be used at any time to end communication with the chosen tree.

b. Absorb Yang energy with your fingers to offset Yin energy

  1. Stand about two or three meters in front of the tree. Approach the tree slowly and gently. Feel the energy field around you become thick as honey.
  2. Stretch your arms toward the tree with your palms facing the trunk and your fingers extended.
  3. As you slowly settle in closer to the tree, less "honey" separates you from the bright energies at its heart.
  4. Likewise, its radiance is revealed to the tree.
  5. At the same time, the honey-like energy around him acts as
  6. When he reaches the tree and wraps it in a big hug, the radiant energies of both come together and it is likely that for a few moments he will lose himself in the bliss of the union.
  7. After making contact in this way, you may need to sit still for a while until the other, deeper connections between you and the tree become stable and simpler. You will soon find yourself in the parallel reading state described above, from which you will circulate and share the energy.
  8. Feel the energy of the tree first. When you feel the Chi energy of the tree, concentrate on the tip of the nose with the mind, the sight and the bottom of the eyes. The top of the eyes look towards the fingertips and the tree.
  1. Absorb the Chi energy with the fingers of the left hand, the mind and the top of the eyes.
  2. Gradually move the top of your eyes to guide the Chi energy up the outside (Yang side) of the left arm, left shoulder, left side of the neck, left ear, and crown of the head. Bring the energy down the right side starting from the back of the right ear, the right side of the neck, the right shoulder and the outside of the right arm to the palm and fingers of the right hand. Project the energy outward from the fingers, combine it with the Cosmic Particle Energy and guide it into the trunk. Absorb it again in a circle. Men repeat the cycle 36 times; women, 24 times (See Figure 2.30).
  3. If you wish to end the experience at this time afterwards, follow the instructions in section a), points 7), 8) and 9) to intensify, lighten and ultimately break your connection with the tree.

The Yang Energy Circle will help you become more sensitive to acute and more superficial pain, as well as to the energy of the Yang Organs (small and large intestines, gallbladder, bladder and stomach).

c. Absorb the Chi energy of the tree with your palms; the yin side

  1. Sit or stand about two or three meters in front of a tree.
  2. Extend your arms toward the tree with your palms facing the trunk (Figure 2.31).
  1. Feel the energy of the tree first. When you feel the Chi energy of the tree, absorb it with your mind, eyes and palms through the latter. Bring the Chi energy up the inside (Yin sides) of both arms to the shoulders, both sides of the neck, the left and right ears, and the crown of the head. From the crown of the head bring the energy down the Functional Channel to the middle of the eyebrow, the throat, the heart, the solar plexus, the navel and the cauldron behind the navel.
  2. Continue bringing the energy down from the cauldron to the perineum, the soles of the feet, and then approximately ten feet into the ground.
  3. Bring the energy up to the roots of the tree, then into the trunk. Feel your energy flowing through the tree, then emerging from the trunk and entering your palm. Repeat cycle nine, 18, 24 6 36 times.
  4. Practice sending your energy up the trunk from the palm of your right hand, through the tree, to the palm of your left hand, and from your left palm, through the tree, to your right palm. Men should practice for 36 cycles; women for 24.

Try to distinguish the different parts of the tree. Start at the top of the trunk. Send your energy into the tree and feel it reverberate. Slowly kneel down to practice with your lower torso. Then practice with the roots. Feel and exchange the force with the tree.

d. Absorb the Chi energy of the tree through the crown of your head

  1. Stand about two or three meters in front of a tree with your arms at your sides. Feel the aura of the tree (Figure 2.32).
  2. If you don't feel it, you can get a little closer.
  3. When you feel the aura of the tree, absorb the energy through the crown of your head. The balanced energy of the tree is gentle and has a very powerful healing effect.
  4. Absorb the energy of the tree through the crown of your head and let it flow down through the Impulsive Channels or through the Functional Channel to the perineum and then to both feet. Exhale the energy through the soles of your feet into the earth. Bring the energy from the ground to the roots and then up the trunk.
  5. Feel how you absorb the Energy of the Earth and that of the tree (Figure 2.33) and how they purify your energy and eliminate unhealthy or negative energy. When you feel it welling up from the trunk, absorb the Energy of the Human Plane (Cosmic Particle) and return the energy to the crown of the head. You will feel that the combined energies nourish the brain, glands and Organs. Repeat the process nine, 18 6 36 times.

and. Share with the tree from the heart.

In this model, the energy of the tree flows through the arms and the heart center. You can use it to cleanse the healer's arms of sick energy that has accumulated during the work, or simply to open the heart.
1) Assume any comfortable position in which you can reach a branch without straining.

  1. Reach out with one arm until you can touch the tree with your palm or fingertips. Feel the life energy under the cortex and make contact with it, allowing some time for the contact to develop.
  2. After a while you will feel that you begin to share, as if a soft aura is transmitted in both directions between your hand and the tree.
  3. Gradually expand the process until you find yourself inhaling and exhaling energy along the entire length of your arm, from your heart center to the tree and back again. Allow this mutual flow to go on for a while.
  4. Now include the other arm. You can rest it on the same branch, near your other hand, or you can rest it on another branch.
  5. Allow the tree's energy to flow down one arm, mix with your own energy at the heart center, and flow down the other arm. Every now and then reverse the direction of flow on one or both arms.
  6. For a deeper experience, try extending the flow from the heart to the navel, letting it run from the tree to the heart, from there to the navel, and then back.
  7. Where does the energy go after leaving your hands and entering the tree? If you follow the path with your mind, you will begin to discover something more about the subtle anotomy of the tree.
  8. You may discover blocked or congested areas that you can work on by circulating energy from one hand to the other. Feel the tree's response to these efforts and allow your intuition to guide you.

Absorb Earth's Energy

  1. Generate heat in your navel and bring the energy up to the crown of your head.
  2. Project Chi energy outward to the top of the tree trunk. Enter the tree and feel yourself establishing a connection with it.
  3. During this process you can stand at a certain distance from the tree (between three and ten meters). As you progress in this practice you will be able to project your energy towards the tree with ease from a greater distance. Allow the tree to absorb sick or negative energy. The energy that returns to you will be in balance.
  4. Allow your energy to flow down the trunk until it reaches the roots and enters the earth (Figure 2.34).
  5. Let the Earth Energy purify your own energy. Absorb this combined energy through the soles of the feet, up to the perineum, and then up through the Impelling Channels or through the Ruling Channel that runs along the spine. Allow the energy to flow up to the crown of your head and project it outward once again. Repeat the process nine, eighteen or thirty-six times.

The more times the procedure is repeated, the more the energy will be refined or increased. Notice that the Drive Channels and the Microcosmic Orbit become clearer and brighter. Once you have established a good connection with the tree, you can send your sick energy towards the tree from a distance, to refine your own energy or improve your state of health.

Meditate while sitting under a tree

Once you have developed your ability to sense the Chi energy of the tree, you can sit under the tree to meditate. Absorb the energy of the tree through the stations (points) of the Microcosmic Orbit (Figure 2.35)
