Every tree forms a portal to the other world and offers a home to many fairies as well as its own special spirit, known as a dryad. To connect with tree spirits, make a habit of going for walks in parks or woodlands and spend time getting to know one special tree. Find out as much as you can about its history.
Sit leaning against it and let your mind wander. Are you aware of beings surrounding you? Is the tree communicating with you in any way? What animals, birds or butterflies do you see? What thoughts or memories arise in you?
As you approach a tree, try to be aware of where its aura starts. Walk slowly with your hands held out in front of you, and see if you can 'touch' the aura... you will feel a slight resistance or cushion of air at the point where it begins.
Feeling the tree aura connects you to the realm of the dryads. Let yourself fall into a dreamy state, where your eyes are slightly out of focus. Can you see shapes or faces in the foliage or bark? These are tree spirits making themselves known.
