This intricate scene of nature spirits Jamming in Central Park, NY is an amazing example of the ability of trees to manifest complex stories within themselves.
This is one of the many complex stories the very strong, aware and powerful nature spirits of Central Park have manifested in their trees and rocks. Here the nature spirits are jamming to flute music! The whole array of life forms who use Central Park have come! There’s the long-haired musician/nature spirit on his flute, a rabbit, a preppy whistler dressed in bow-tie and cap, a birdman and a gnome.
There’s a story behind this. About 15 years ago, when I was working at the United Nations, a presenter at our S.E.A.T. staff club discussed how sad he was for the nature spirits in Central Park – they were in the middle of a polluted city, and their energy was being sapped. Somehow that explanation never rang true to me. Not like the nature spirits I felt around me! So 13 years later, now living in the Midwest, and fairly well versed in interdimensional issues, I decided to test out this statement for myself.
On my next visit to Manhattan, I headed to Central Park. What a surprise! Instead of weak nature spirits – I found very powerful, compassionate, caring spirits who were very, very busy and authentically working to support the humans in their area with healing nature energy. Their depth of character and subtle development mirror the energy of the city itself. Over time, I’ll be showing you a number of portrait studies of nature spirit friends I have met on my visits to Central Park. In each of these portrait studies, I do the very minimal work on the photograph – mainly adjusting contrast and color. What you see is what is there.
Should you live nearby, I invite you to visit Central Park and experiment for yourself. First you need to respectfully greet the deva of the park (pretend if you can’t consciously connect – they’ll hear your intent). Then request to be led to some part of the park whose nature spirits have something to share with you. When contact comes, if may be a feeling, thought, subtle whisper of wind. Acknowledge that contact, and start….
Photo Tip: I went back several times to photograph this tree. It worked best on an overcast day, at noon. The direct overhead light sometimes shows details with the least distortion, especially on a cloudy day. I developed a relationship with the tree – as one would doing a portrait of a person – to get it to perk up its energy and come forward strongly. You can see the difference in my series as the tree energy responded.
