Spring is here so we'll all be leaving our houses, our computers to enjoy the weather, so why not hug a tree! Tree Hugging - More than a hippy invention! Trees are litterally rooted in the earth and their energies are therefore very earthing, when you connect with a tree by being in its vicinity or by touching it (you don't really have to hug it) your energies get earthed. Give it a try! It's fun :-)

Spring is here so we'll all be leaving our houses to enjoy the weather, so why not hug a tree! Try it, you will most certainly feel the benefits.
Trees are litterally rooted in the earth and their energies are therefore very earthing, when you connect with a tree by being in its vicinity or by touching it (you don't really have to hug it) your energies get earthed.
Hug a tree - Anytime will do, it is always good!!
Tree Hugging - Here's what i do:
I become aware of the tree's beauty, that alone is very humbling!
I step up to the tree and put my hand on the bark. You don't really have to do anything, the energies will do it for you, but i try to consciously tap into it because a mindful act is more powerful.
And be still, silence allows things to come up and flow. So imagine your stress flowing out of your hand into the tree into its roots and into the earth where it just simply dissolves because it has no right of existence there. You will feel better!
And I always thank the tree for letting me use it, gratitude and respect are very important I think. So go out and try it!You will not regret I promise, have fun!
New SHOE Photo Category

Background Information about Tree Hugging
More than a hippy invention!
The first treehugging recorded happened in 1731 in india where a community tried to defend trees from being cut down by the local ruler, they did this by clinging to the trees, risking their own lives. Throughout the ages treehugging has become an environmental act and now even scientifically proven to improve your health!
