Wednesday Wisdom

Trees…Our Allies this Week!


This week’s Sacred Path card that was selected for Wednesday Wisdom is the Standing People card.  It is a time to go deeper…

The Standing People are the trees, referred by the Native Americans as our Sisters and Brothers.  They give oxygen, shelter, medicines, materials and other things that provide for the needs of others. Each tree has a special lesson to give humankind as well as physical gifts.  For example, pine teaches us the lessons of being in harmony with ourselves and others.

Watch this video as I explain how important it is to be still like a tree and feel your emotions, allowing them to move through you as you connect with your inner self. Ask a question, feel, and go deeper again… If your mind takes you to a situation that evokes fear, sadness or anger in you, know that it is your ego trying to deal with the situation.


We need to run our roots deep into the Earth or else we will become out of balance and not fully understand the purpose of our visions, dreams and potentials. If you are spaced out, stop and reconnect. Find any blockage that limits your root system to go deeper…then remove that feeling and go deeper again for the answers you seek.

Trees are your teachers for this week…talk to them…hug them…listen to them.  They will help you if you ask.
