Trees have been used a form of symbolism for centuries and as a way of helping us to understand what our subconscious is saying to us: what to allow in, what to let go of and what needs to be seen but is unseen. When we are drawn to a certain tree we can then, by understanding how it can work with us, gain clarity and support.
All things are interwoven in the world, all of us give and receive support to the rest of the world. Trees are one part of that inter-relationship and one that I am constantly driven to understand more about and to work it into a collaboration with my own life development.
As I research, study and understand trees in my own work, my aim is to focus on one in particular, dedicating a page to it here. Based on my own experiences I will share the importance of that tree and the special gift it has to give.
The Rowan reconnects us to our higher purpose. It works with us to do this by highlighting what we are carrying that is not ours and not aligned on making a positive action towards that higher purpose.
We have taken things on from others (thoughts, ideas or assumptions). We have had things that were required to take us to this point but those are no longer necessary for us going forward and therefore need to be cleansed and are carrying things for others and for their benefit, that must be set down.
In working with the pine tree you are able to see a clear direction above the melee that maybe going on around you or above you to just keep your head above everything that seeks to distract your vision and your perspective. Rise up and see the highest where the view is clear and you can get clarity.
Working with the Rowan helps us to bring that higher purpose back into focus and in doing this to see what else we are working with that is taking our energy. It allows us to become aware of where our energy is going and gives us the choice to call it back and set down anything that does not nurture us and our journey ahead.
When we are called to work with the Rowan, it is letting us know that there is a time now to cleanse ourselves. There are things that we no longer need and by seeking out the Rowan and asking to work with this tree, we can reveal what these things are, the impact on our path. Let us reconnect to that higher purpose, that we all have and stand strong in it. Value all that we have, that builds within us the path to growth.
