do trees sleep?
you know...i don't think i ever stopped to ask. lol....
i know that they don't have the same kind of consciousness that we do...and while some trees are more vocal and 'aware' then others, there are also some that seem to be in a constant state of 'hibernation' if you will. i don't think they stop to rest like you and i though... er...i guess i'll just have to ask one of them. good question! still, they LOVE it when you talk to them, and take the time to listen. they NEVER get that kind of attention, and its refreshing stimulus for them.
they like a good offering too (something like honey and water or flowers... i dunno for sure... but its really more the acknowledgment that they like) and they'll even assist you with protection spells or nature and weather spells.
you know the chestnut tree? take 3 fallen chestnuts, kiss them or blow on them with your intent in mind and small thank you, and put them in your pocket or string them in your hair, or wrap them in tissue (i use newspaper) with a pretty ribbon and put it on your dresser or next to your mirror, and you have a VERY effective beauty spell. keep it a secret, and almost that very same day...people will find you more attractive. you'll get more attention. to make it EXTRA sexy instead of just charismatic, sprinkle them with cinnamon or wrap them with a cinnamon stick before you tie the ribbon bow. pumpkin spice works ok too but cinnamon really gives it a kick. when you are done, either refresh the spell or return the chestnuts to the ground. better yet, bury them so that they can grow
if you ask politely enough, they will even lend you energy if you are feeling tired or stressed out.
try mentally fusing with the tree...that's a trip! lean next to the trunk, (always with permission!) and become one with the roots and limbs. soon you'll feel what its like to see and breath out of your skin. its a very strange but enervating state of mind. don't forget to say thank you and goodbye when you're gone. it even helps to say 'i'll see you later' with a promise to meet up with your new friend later.
here are a couple suggestions, hope you like
