The soul of a tree

I've always felt that when I visited the Big Tree and touched its trunk, I heard the following words:

When you were of the dream before awakening, I was the vein through which you flowed into this ring of existence. We are all one, all connected, all of the same source.

The following post is all about the Big Tree.

The Spirit of the Nature Kingdom

The Big Tree belongs to one of our Indigenous plant species of South Africa and has been holding a global vision for more than 1000 years. In the course of the last four years it has become known that it has not been for nothing. Our global vision of unity and peace for all does have a purpose!

For a very long time our indigenous forests have been thought of as the home of fairies and powerful spirits. Our woods were full of tree nymph spirits before our forest was invaded by people. These nature spirits were friendly to humans, and they lived for as long as the tree that they lived in did, which could be for thousands of years. Those days have gone, but lately, due to the fact that more and more people are starting to be become tree huggers, a connection has been firmly re-established with the human kingdom which always symbolized our form with the cycles of life.

We are aware that people have been worshiping trees since ancient times, probably because we are so tall and strong, and can withstand the forces of nature, such as storms, gales, and freezing temperatures.

Did you know?

  • Tsitsikamma is a khoi word meaning "place of abundant or sparkling water
  • Most of the indigenous forests in the western section of the Garden Route fall within the Tsitsikamma National Park.
  • The walk to the yellowwood is about 1km in total and takes about 10 minutes through lush indigenous bush.
  • The Outeniqua yellowwood (Podocarpus falcatus) belongs to the same family as South Africa’s national tree, the real yellowwood (Podocarpus latifolius).

1999 – 2000 - 2001

My new home in St Francis Bay in the Eastern Cape was about two hours drive from the Prehistoric forest that I loved, especially The Big Tree in Tsitsikamma. This giant of a tree – a famous giant yellowwood tree estimated to be 10800 years old is located in the heart of the Tsitsikamma National Park near the Storms River Bridge and has played a big role in my life from the moment of my first visit in 1980. Years later I could never just drive past without stopping at The Big Tree.

My life took a major turn, after I woke up one morning after a rather strange dream...

The Garden of Eden

I sat on the grass meditating and in my dream, for that split second, I grasped what our new consensus reality would look like. Then I felt separated again but the following sounds that translated into words, these inner voices as I called them, had to be written down, before I forgot them.

(Personally I do not believe that other entities speak through us or for us. I know that many names for entities are given by people who claim they are channeling angels or higher dimensional beings. That is their perception. It’s my personal experience that a channeling experience is more like our brain's nerve cells that are able to “tune in” to the right wavelength. Just like our radio is set on the proper radio wavelength, or our television set is tuned into the right frequencies.)

Dream inspirations

I feverishly wrote down the following words...

"My beloved, your brain converts frequencies in the objective world of appearances. You have to relearn to transcend this frequency zone in consciousness in order to release it.

“The universe is comprised of many reality fields that your learned men call electrons. At this moment these electrons are no longer influencing the human consciousness.

"The sad truth is that these electrons are so deeply ingrained to project only one reality, that they have become trapped into a habitual pattern of repetition, becoming one big hologram you call 3 D. They form a cosmic hologram of one reality that has become trapped and frozen in what humans perceive as a time zone within space. ( We know it as Program Earth)

"Your awareness level has been trapped for so long, it is now revealingly copying the same reality pattern in order to stay within its illusion."

Were had that idea about electrons come from, since I'm no scientist?

Your shifts in perceptions

"I still appear as a tree to you, but I’m a universe within a universe. The nature kingdom belonged to a different reality field from the human species but has also been trapped in the moment of time and took on the same patterns of repetitions of the cause and effect laws of this creation."

Déja vu

When I woke up from this vivid dream and opened my eyes, a brightly colored large spider web, delicately woven, obstructed my view. I started to see the sparkling spectrum of colored threads of pulsating partials that formed the web.

That was so-called reality was back...but I still remember that for one split second, I was at one with the green grass, the flowers, the trees, the sky and the spider that flew as a trapeze artist to the next branch of the purple Bougainvillea, to connect yet another spectacular long thread within this third dimensional world of ours.

Every time I visit the Big Tree, I first give it a big hug, and then I let this majesty download its wisdom, so that later during a meditation, or through my dream time, I wake up with information that is valuable to share.


What is worth knowing....

  • Our eyes are portholes that create images for the brain to conceive. Our eye can weave a tapestry so masterful that our awareness is fooled by it.
  • The eyes of our physical body are inductive filters using the five senses of the physical body, of which eye is the body’s camera.
  • The eye is the most important master gene of the human form because it collects and stores all the electromagnetic etched imprints that come from your thoughts that blend with the light partials around.
  • The retina mirrors the five senses of the human body that respond to the five "elements" or "frequencies" which are the basic building blocks of all life in this existence.

As I write this article I recalled more impressions that at this moment, I now translate into words:

"Within this master gene, kaleidoscopic memories of original creations of spectrum evolutions and parallel planetary systems form the blueprint of your SOUL’s library.

“All parts of the physical body can be found in the eye because the eye holds the primary grid for physical creation.

"Planet earth has been quarantined in a physical time-lag by preconditioned intelligence operating within lower energy thresholds. That is why our world has gone through a continual mutation which is completely out of balance. It is within your resonant eye focus, that changes in your molecular structure will occur.....”

Had I written this all before?

Over the years I have written so many articles that were published on my old website, including the articles I shared on several social websites, today, when I write a hub article I just check if I can find similar text on the internet, just in case I'm duplicating something....
This is what I found.. The article on .....THE PRISM TREE by Nadine May


Pity that I can't share the impressions that were voiced to me years ago, coming from
The Big Tree if you click on the link and scroll down on that page, you can still read it.

Does having a global vision have a purpose?


May your dreams and visions for everyone on our planet in 2014 manifest for the good of all.

Greetings from the nature kingdom to all who read my message.

From ‘The Big Tree’, spokesvoice of the Spirit of our Tsitsikamma forest.

      I so like what you wrote about the trees in the future. I think they are already a self contained Universe, its us humans that need to speed up our frequencies . Thanks

      Thank you Reynold for your great commend and the vote for the best sketch. Why don't you just do that, get an airline ticket and visit our beautiful country and the big tree..

      It certainly is interesting how if you do write your dreams down and then go back and read them later sometimes is takes years but sometimes only few weeks they seem to make more sense.

      I put it down to the concept of synchronicity in which it takes experiences in your conscious state to interpret them correctly, who knows!

      I read somewhere where trees in the future will be their own self contained Universe in which you can step into them and experience them. I also read where trees are sometimes higher dimensional beings taking a vacation to experience solitude, peace and serenity.

      Hi Jodah. When I woke up to write the words down in my dream note book next to my bed, the words were at the time also more intriguing than understandable, but today they make a lot more sense. Thanks for your vote up.

      Thank you Flourish yes this tree emanates a powerful energy. Most of the photos were made by a non digital camera, so I needed to scan them. Never so good but thanks.

      Thank you Nadine for sharing Big Tree's words and the Spirit of Tsitsikamma Forest. It was intriguing and the photos great. I don't pretend to understand everything that was explained in the dream but it is worth studying. Good hub. Voted up.

      That enormous old tree is beautiful. No wonder it has so much to say. I love your images, too.

      I'm nearly ready to purchase a ticket and go see this place! Somethblue has some good thoughts and I readily agree with her. When will humankind wake up and learn for the past and then vow not to repeat the errors over and over again? Probably never. I like to answer my own questions. I want to include you a "vote for the best sketch" HUB that should be up and running in a few days. First HUB in Months. Well done article as always.

      Thank you both, somethgblue and Phyllis for your Synchronicity about our nature kingdom. Love our faery kingdom as well, especially the creative art on Pinterest. Happy New Year to you both.

      Nadine May, I really enjoyed reading this hub and I love your photo collages, they are so pretty. Thank you for sharing the words of Big Tree. I, too, have a strong connection to Nature and also to the world of faery which I see coming back stronger to us after so many years of separation. Thanks again for this wonderful article. Voted up and sharing.

      It is incredibly interesting how synchronicity works as I just had similar information revealed to me in a book I'm reading by Dolores Cannon called the Convoluted Universe, in which it described among many other wonderful concepts how humanity is trapped in a repeating pattern of their own making.

      Because we are ignorant of this paradigm we've mired ourselves in we cannot spiritually evolve past it, so pure light beings have been created and are being sent to Earth to help those that are willing to transcend this self contained (hologram) we have created and are stuck in.

      The concept you just expressed in this article explains a lot, including the quarantine, because I believe others in the past have been sent to try and help us move out of this trap we have put ourselves in and have gotten stuck as well.

      It is like a negativity trap, how can such evil exist on a planet that is so beautiful, it defies my my conception of how the world should exist.

      I really like your articles, thanks for sharing.
