Laura asked me “From your perspective, what is the impact of the loss of these trees” – referring to these Cottonwood trees with the images of a nature spirit and a pioneer, which I wrote about a few days ago.
The answer is – it depends. It would take a book to answer. But to summarize some of the major changes:
These specific trees are placeholders. They are holding one of the main nodal points of a energy grid that covers the entire original Chatfield Farm, in Colorado. They are holding in place the respectful partnership of nature and man. Like any grid – if one or two anchor points are removed, the grid can continue on and if the nature spirits wish, they can transfer the anchor to another tree in the area. If many anchor points are removed (cut down or lost to storms), then the grid would weaken and dissolve. Perhaps a different type of a grid would take shape, with a different energy. We see this when housing replaces woods – the energies change.
The energies shown here are not the tree itself – they are what we humans would call disciplinary energies – e.g. they shown the function of the tree. Thus these energies can be transferred. There is also the inherent life form of the tree, and the life form of the nature spirit birthed with the tree and who stays with the tree until its death. If the tree dies, these energies “die” as well. Then there are levels of nature spirits going up the line – the spirit responsible for a small area, the entire region, etc. They are responsible for the well-being of the life forms in their area, but they live even if a specific plant or tree dies.
So I have a few true stories about variations on this situation. Of course. I love stories!
