Common interpretation and meanings related to dreams about trees or parts of a tree

Image via Tumblr

By Alex B

Dreaming about a tree represents a symbol related to one’s personal life and individuality of the person experiencing this vision. The shape of the tree in a dream is a subjective representation and reflection of this person’s or someone else’s, who is very close to the person, life situation and personal existence with relation to other people’s lives.

A tree in a dream, depending on its kind and state can be a symbol carrying a lot of meanings, both positive and negative, which can be describing dreamer’s body conditions and state, indication about health and physical wellness, ability to grow both physically and intellectually, personal achievements and progress with work as well as connection to the genealogical tree and immediate family or predecessors.

A tree in a dream can also be a representation of how studying and acquiring knowledge is progressing and even how they might affect the life of a person who happened to dream about this symbolic image. It can equally be a simple way for subconscious mind to tell people about their life course and reflect their direct or indirect relationship with others around them (these meanings will largely depend on in what conditions a tree was growing and what kind of a tree shape it has been seen: large, small, a tree with stunted growth, a perfectly shaped or a dwarf tree, a dry or a dead tree).

Tree branches seen in a dream are a symbol of hidden abilities and secret desires or aspirations. Some sources describe dreaming about a tree trunk as an indication of problems related to the dreamer’s spinal cord and basic health conditions which need to be looked at more closely or with more attention. Upper branches and canopy of a tree in a dream point out our connection to the outer space , ability to express ourselves spiritually and find ways to be able to deal with everyday life while relying on a higher levels of cognition and striving for balanced and self-fulfilling future.

Tree roots in a dream are usually what they symbolize in a wake life, they represent basic needs for our existence, connection with ancestors and inner urge to care about humankind or certain people we communicate with on a everyday basis (family, close friends, co-workers or relatives). Tree roots can also be a sign or financial stability and independence, propensity to accumulate wealth and provide for our family.

Tree leaves with all their various shapes, colors and sizes and depending on what state they were seen while dreaming represent subconscious concerns and worries related to personal private life, something we have been going through recently and our current state of consciousness. It is important to note here that even small details in a dream related to tree foliage can affect interpretation of its meaning and help to uncover positive or negative message these dreams may contain.

The overarching meaning related to dreams about trees can be described as development and growth in time, either for an individual or for relationships and personal connections this individual creates in his or her personal life with other people. Some dream interpretation sources make reference to dreaming about a ‘universal’ tree, an entity which represents the universe we exist in and which carries a special meaning when our mind tries to grasp the fact they exist and learn more about cosmic forces or objects in space which perplex and astonish us by their magnitude.

Lastly, dreaming about trees under certain weather conditions or with seasonal patterns can also reveal a multitude of interpretations and symbolic meanings. Many dream interpretation sources describe dreaming about healthy trees with lush foliage as a sign of personal wellness and material wealth, while dreaming about dry trees stripped of foliage signify times of loneliness and hardship. Depending on a season (winter, summer, spring, autumn), dreams about trees are interpreted as symbols related to the beginning of a new relationship or exciting and fulfilling career or less promising or inspiring outcomes, such as periods of hard work and the need to choose priorities in life in order to succeed or being able to handle many things simultaneously.

The brain and the gut are more connected than you’d think

Intuitives, shamans and mystics have known for many years that the brain is not the entire person. While psychiatrists tend to focus on the brain, this can be misleading. The human being is a whole person, to include body, soul and a relationship with God.

To exclusively focus on the brain seems superficial to some, dangerous to others. Luckily, however, modern research is beginning to realize the inadequacy of purely brain-based psychiatry. Last night I saw this video with author David Perlmutter:

http://tvo.org/video/213114/david-perlmutter-belly-and-brain

At first glance I thought Perlmutter was just another new age, health huckster who will say or do anything to peddle his book. But once he began to speak, I realized he was an intelligent, articulate proponent of the idea that the brain and the gut are intimately connected.

Dont get me wrong. I agree that the brain is crucial. But it’s not alone. It’s part of a total organism located in a physical, social and spiritual environment.

Healing the wound(s) within the Heart Chakra

Image via Tumblr

© Angela Ohlman

You are wounded. There are lifetimes of worry, fear, doubt and seeds of darkness planted within your heart centre. Day by day these wounds are grounded in today’s actions, beliefs, doors and windows within each dimension of self you visit, moment to moment. Each one connecting to the next, creating of tapestry of life extended from the wound. Dreams, desires and the endless well of faith, abundance and eternal joy… flow beneath the wound, around it, seeping out in trickles, confusion and chaos.

The wound can be one or many, fresh or old, clean or pungent, male or female, whole or hole. This energy has gained hold and only you can offer its’ release. You must explore the many hallways and doors that lead to deep within this wound. You must be willing to hear your own cries and screams for justice, for revenge and to see the shadow this wound has cast.

Delve within your most inner hurts and there you will see the mirror. The mirror shows your role, your mis-perceptions, your amour, your open wound that you work so hard to hide from the world, deny to yourself, that you protect and seek revenge for. This wound is real, alive, seeping and ready for love.

You must be willing to walk the hallways, to open new doors, to peer within with an open mind, an open heart and be a witness to the path you have been walking. To look beyond the hurt and see what caused this wound, what has been feeding it, what protection is coving your vulnerability and pain? Others will remove the scabs but the wound itself is for you to acknowledge, accept, love and replenish with what it is you desire for your highest self and your relationships with those around you; your tapestry, your life.

The wound is merely a reflection of lost power, or what we have given to others, of what we run from. Once inside you may loath the parts of yourself that lashed out, that screamed for attention, that caused addiction or whatever other blessings are whirling within your storm, the hidden, the forgotten and the despised. Hate and pain are merely the illusions that keep us from finding our wounds and creating again.

Once you surrender to this space…. There is a shift. Your psyche awakens. You meet it, face it, acknowledge it and look for places to heal within it, remove the swords that caused it, release those that you trapped and set yourself free from the guilt, shame, sadness, hurt and pain that was holding you captive. You release the shackles. You simply let go. You can move beyond the pain, replace, heal and retrieve the goodness that was swelling below it. You look around and see the chaos has vanished; there is a clean slate and a rebirth about to take place. You are renewed, revived and full of life.

This is a blank slate, a new garden to create, you realize there is more than just hope, there is an open heart to love, to paint, to create and sing with the joy for whatever your soul truly desires to create from. The calm is beyond the storm, the wound has healed, and the wholeness is satisfying, full, flowing and the tapestry is endless, bountiful and abundant with peace. Everyone is free. You have loved yourself completely, healed your wound, released the past, opened yourself to a new flow, a garden of opportunity and a Truth that only your heart will hear. Take those wings and fly.

Spiritual Marriage

What is spiritual marriage? I believe it is helpful to begin by defining marriage itself. According to Merriam Webster dictionary marriage is “a) the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex…in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law, b) the institution whereby individuals are joined in marriage, and c) an intimate or close union. (The photo to the right is a Ketubah in Aramaic, a Jewish marriage contract that outlines the duties of each partner)
The definition of marriage has been in the news concerning whether homosexual marriage should be made lawful. There is much more to marriage than meets the eye and controversy takes focus away from the Truth of holy matrimony and the deeper, spiritual meaning that is only discerned by communion with the Spirit of God.

Marriage, according to the Dictionary of Symbols by Chevalier & Gheerbrant, is the…

Thoughts on Inter-dimensional Intelligences (Part 1)

Originally posted on Shamagaia:

A lot of people have been connecting with me in recent weeks seeking clarity on the nature of inter-dimensional intelligences, so this seemed like a good time to whip together a little insight on some of the ones that I have encountered.

It’s hard to put experiences with inter-dimensional intelligences into words. Referring to something like Jungian archetypes is a start, but it only seems to get us so far. In this sense we at least have a paradigm from our side of the veil to relate to such things, because some inter-dimensional intelligences can reflect elements of our psychic condition, but there are others that seem to express a definite independent sense of being and motivation. So if we decide to relate to such intelligences as an extension of our own conciousness reflected in a higher dimensional source that’s fine, because we can at least start to contend with…

What Is Spirituality And Its Meaning

English: A woman walking a prayer labyrinth

By john johanson

Spirituality can be termed as a process of self metamorphosis either in a manner confirming with conventional religious paradigm or aligned with personal experience and psychological development dissociated from any religious context. In a more general way of things, spirituality may imply any sort of purposeful act or a delightful experience. There is no definition for spirituality that is carved in stone. It is a subjective topic that is disposed to personal opinions.

There are plenty of spiritual books online that present their readers with a unique opportunity to delve deep into the world of spirituality and understand its various meanings. These online spiritual books are a great resource for readers to bask in the wealth of knowledge that has the power to enlighten even the darkest corners of our minds and soul in a manner no other thing can. Knowledge is the ultimate aphrodisiac that can stimulate even the more sterile minds.

In earlier times, spirituality and religion were considered interconnected. As the society altered itself to the changing times, the prudish moral climate gave way to a more liberal and tolerant social atmosphere and the meaning of the word spirituality also changed. The concept of spirituality alienated itself from the ideas of religion. This new found meaning of spirituality was based more on a subjective approach.

The difference between spiritualism and religion was discerned with greater conviction by the modern day world. The upsurge of secularism also spurred this modern day approach towards spiritualism. The people developed a broader perspective that was built around logic and rational thinking. This novel perspective conveys the belief that a spiritual experience is the nucleus of spirituality. This particular notion has been much hyped by the western culture. Spiritual experiences may incorporate being in touch with a greater reality, resulting in a more complete self.

This self metamorphosis ensues in evolution of a kind. We evolve spiritually and our spirit is subjected to liberation from mundane worries. The fast pace of the modern day world demands a lot out of us. This incessantly demanding nature of our lives leaves us with no time to think and ponder about our inner being. We often forget that we as human beings have a specific purpose to our existence and that purpose can only be found by exploring our inner self, our spirituality. We need to acknowledge the fact that only by exploring our inner self; we can lend purpose and context to our otherwise meaningless struggle to exist.

The Greenman, The Empress, Little John and Indy Jones: Untying a Celtic Knotwork

illum_recently I experienced some very vivid psychic impressions during a lucid dreaming experience. One in particular had me receiving images of the Celtic symbolSerpiente_alquimica of the Greenman, and leading a Druidic prayer ritual in a stunning forest grove. I suspect that it might have been a peek through the eyes of ancestral memory, or perhaps a hint of things to come. Cyclically speaking, it might even be one and the same event: a past and future imposed upon one another, linked acausally by reoccurring astrological conditions of the sort expressed Alchemically by the Ouroboros snake eating it’s own tail. One things for sure, I will be doing a lot more research into Celtic lore!
The timing of this experience was telling. It was the night before my dear, departed Grandad’s RWS_Tarot_03_Empressbirthday and the week previously, I had recieved a very clear psychic image of a Tarot card with a…
