I attended a dowsing course yesterday and one of the most enjoyable part of the day was to dowse for a tree's aura. It was such a simple thing to do, yet was so powerful in the way it made me feel.
Find a tree that you feel connected to, say hello and explain that you will not hurt it. Using dowsing rods, starting at the tree trunk walk forward and measure it's aura. Usually it has expanded to just below it's branch's. The tree is not quite yet able to open up to you, it still feels very protective. Again go back to the tree trunk and this time talk to the tree, hug the tree, stroke the tree, love the tree. Let your feelings expand out to the tree, spending time to show how much you care for the tree. This time again walk out from the tree trunk and measure it's aura. You will be so pleasantly surprised at how the aura now expands beyond it's branch's out into the field afar. I felt so connected to nature, it was such a simple way of showing how all of our actions, whether harsh words or actions, love and happiness, truly have an impact on the world we live in.
