Trees provide protection from the elements with their branches. They share their fruit, sap and bark to provide nutrition. They uplift us with their shape, color, smell, and longevity. Sensitives among us easily understand that they provide us with much more. They directly deliver to us their energy, their prana. All we need to do is sit or stand near the tree to receive its healing energy. Although sensitives can easily sense this healing force, any of us can learn to discern this energy.
