Treants: The living Trees
Wanderers of the forests, voice to the ageless ones. Gathers of stories that span across the endless reaches of time. Silently they glide through forests, glades and jungles – great teachers to the forest beings, the young ones.
I remember once being summoned to a meeting in a forest. The meeting hall was on a massive round wooden platform with all the elementals gathering around it. In the middle, was the elven king of that specific city and a Treant. Old and wise, Black Bark his name. Ageless beyond time, there He stood, surrounded by elves, fairies, gnomes, dragons and more. He was the great leader of that forest, of many forests all around. He held great respect for all creatures knew His name.
Treants work incredibly closely to all other elementals. They can be seen as the great grandfathers of the Elemental Kingdom. Their wisdom is paramount, even more so to the elves. Where the elves gather wisdom, the Treants have experienced it firsthand. The elves are intellectual where Treants are more practical.
They have immense compassion for all beings, willing to fight for any cause they see fit. Do not perceive them as slow or simple-minded as they are anything but. Their thinking is slow, weighing all options before making a decision (they have been around for thousands of years after all, there is a lot of information to sift through!)
To have a Treant on your side however, is like having the entire forest supporting you. All elementals heed the call of Treants, they will follow any instruction as so ordered by one of these great beings for they are the wisest and know all.
They are rooted in Gaia – living, moving, talking beings of Her energy and majesty. They speak Her truth, as they are living within it. But their land is slowly being destroyed, with each tree felled they weep in silence.
Treants are teachers, teaching saplings:
the language of trees,
how to speak,
how to see,
how to feel the life that moves through them.
But alas, this is an undertaking far greater than the capabilities of Treants currently. The new trees have no voice – they have no call. They are trapped inside of themselves not knowing they are connected and united to all. That is why now, when we walk into any manmade forest we never have the same experience as when we walk into an old ancient temperate rainforest. It is not the same, the trees have not been taught how to speak, they have voice – they cannot sing to us. They are alone, trapped within themselves.
When next you walk in a forest, become still and feel the trees – hear their presence and experience them. They want to be heard, they want to be known. They have great stories to tell us, for they have observed for eons and know much.
And Treants, they are always there – roaming, observing, teaching and healing.
How to connect to Treants:
The best way would be through trees already there.
Go to the nearest tree, give it a huge hug and then sit underneath it.
Touch it at the base of its trunk and say “Thank you”, it doesn’t matter what you thank them for, just so long you can acknowledge them for their beauty and the gift they give to us each day.
And then say to the tree:
“I can hear your song, and I want you to sing. I want you to sing each day to me, to everyone that walks past you. Sing so loud it deafens the wind”
If you can build a relationship with a tree near you, and help it, teach it and acknowledge it – a Treant will eventually appear. To thank you, to gift you – for you have helped give one of their siblings a voice again!
You can hear them speak when the wind comes to say hello, you can high five them when they let their children slowly return back down to the earth.
So what are Elementals?
Where do they come from and why are they here?
Why can’t I see them?
Elementals are pure Earth spirits / Nature beings. They are the workers of Lady Gaia – here to help support and heal Earth. Just as they come in different shapes and sizes – they have vastly different roles from each other. Ultimately however, it is for the wellbeing of the planet and everyone on it that they are working towards.
You get 4 different ‘kinds’ of elementals. Earth, Air, Fire and Water. As they are elements of Earth – they carry those kinds of energies within them.
Giants, trolls, gnomes, dwarves – they are all of the Earth. They work with the ground, the soil. The dwarves dig beneath the surface, while the giants wander above it. They are all continually healing the land, so that we may continue to live on it.
Whisps and fairies to name only two. Fairies however, come in a plethora of different shapes and sizes – their duties not all being the same. Some are for the flowers, some are for the trees, and others are there to help the community.
The great dragons, phoenixes and salamanders are some of the fire elementals. They purge and cleanse with fire – leaving only truth and purity behind.
The mermaids, sirens and elementals I don’t have names for. Like whispers they are barely seen or heard in the currents of a river. I remember once standing in the ocean and could see how they were pushing the waves out to shore.
Above I have just named a few – I did not even get to fawns, treants, devas, the actual multitude of fairies and elves.
My strongest experiences are those with Elves. I cannot classify them in an element because they encompass all elements and also higher learning/wisdom aswell. I will be writing extensively more on elves in the coming weeks so keep a lookout.
The elementals live in a realm called The Elemental Kingdom. This however, is not some secret location that only certain people can travel to. It is a level of reality placed directly upon ours. Elementals can be found everywhere – even in great cities – where there is greenery – they are there.
The reason why so few people can see them is because of 2 factors.
1) We have hurt elementals in the past, so much so that they have withdrawn from us. Even when people can see them, elementals are not that eager to come towards them – they rather stay further away, just observing and taking note. Elementals need to trust us again, to know that we will not go back to our darker nature. They are incredibly pure beings, thus only when we emit the same pure frequency – can we really connect with them.
2) We have been told that they do not exist. As children we always saw them, we acknowledged them and interacted with them. Growing older, we were told they are make-believe. That it is only fantasy and we stopped seeing them. We must cultivate that belief again, that unwavering knowing that they are around us all the time.
The Elementals are very much alive around you right now. You can see their presence everywhere if you only know what to look for. With purity of your heart, clear intentions and absolute belief – you will see them, and be able to connect.
