Here is a brief transcript from a phone conversation I recently had with someone who had attended my sessions in rehab, we are talking about 'Meet a Tree'.
*** *** ***
Geoffrey: Hi. How are things?
Hi Geoffrey, Things are really good thanks! I miss my tree though!
Geoffrey: That’s true for everyone. I take it you are not going to a tree then?
I thought people might find me quite weird blindfolding myself in the local park and going on a wander. So I have yet to do it!
Geoffrey: You do not need to blindfold yourself. Also I find that when people call me weird I tend to thank them, because it means you are unique you are not conforming to how they see their world.
So how do I find my tree if I am not blindfolded? I thought the whole point was that you were spiritually drawn to it and not to find it by looking with your eyes?
Geoffrey: ell the idea with the blindfold is to show you that you can connect on a deeper level; you can still be drawn by your feelings when you connect with your heart. The blindfold helps me to show you how powerful you really are, by taking your thoughts that tell you what to do everyday and to help you see them manifest into the physical world and from your experience help you to see that by connecting with your feelings in nature often comes that spiritual awakening if you like.
Oh right. Man I miss those sessions we used to do, but I guess the idea is that I can do that anywhere, whenever.
Geoffrey: Yes that is true, it is up to you if you want to move with it, I am powerless over your outcome, you can connect to your spirit and the spirit of the tree anywhere you choose.
I may just try and do that this Sunday then!
Geoffrey: Sweet, you will be surprised at how well you do, remember it is about being in the heart and trusting. Do you remember how it affected you back then?
Yeah, it was weird but pretty amazing.
Geoffrey: Yes it is amazing, what was amazing about it for you?
I don’t know. I was ignoring all the logic and just letting go like it wasn't me, by trying to remember that I went a certain way actually didn't help, just connecting.
Geoffrey: Yep you got it.
nd you just knew there's something cool about it, being 'beyond all logical thought' and just trusting and feeling I quite like that I guess.
