I was awakened the next day by the rising Sun. I was in a sunny, yet protected area between a huge rock and a very big tree. It was actually the most wonderful place I could have slept because the rock kept the warmth of the day almost into dawning, and the tree left it’s leaves under and over me.
In fact, there were so many warm leaves around me, that I wondered if the tree had sent them to me.
“Why of course I did! All of us Nature Beings take care of awakening human ones.”
“What do you mean by awakening human ones?” I said as I stood up and brushed the leaves off my body.
“Dear human one, do you mean to say that you do NOT know you are an awakening one? Even I can tell that you are awakening, and I am a tree!”
When the tree identified itself, I was sure I was still asleep and having a dream. I was about to pinch my self to wake up when I heard the Tree say, “Wait, wait, child. You must not fully awaken now, or you will doubt all that has happened, and is happening within this NOW.”
“Happening within this NOW?” I think I said to the tree. Obviously, I was still sleeping.
“Yes, you have been ‘sleeping’ all your life, but now you are awakening.”
“What am I awakening to?” I asked. “I am fully aware that I had just had a very long dream, but I don’t know who packed my bags, or how I got them all the way out here?”
“You woke up in the forest and don’t know how you got here? I will remind you that we, your Nature Family, have called you here because you have awakened to your new life, which is multidimensional.”
“Multidimensional?” I asked. “What does that mean? I know that I have a huge imagination, and sometimes I seem to get so lost in it that I get confused what is a dream, what is my imagination, and what is real.”
“It does not seem ‘real’ that I am talking with a tree. I mean, I imagine that I see beings in the sky, the water, and even on the earth and, most of all, inside of a fire, but that is just my vivid imagination. Right?” I asked.
“You are having an ongoing conversation with a tree. And, I am very grateful for your ability to commune with me. We can speak with each other now because you are traveling into the higher planes while you sleeping.”
“But, I was sleeping right there,” I said as I pointed to my sleeping space.
“Yes,” answered the tree, “but while your third dimensional physical body was sleeping, your fourth dimensional astral body was awake and conversed with my fourth dimensional tree body.”
Somehow, I understood exactly what the tree was telling me.
“It is through your imagination that you human ones can hear and converse with all of us Nature Beings. We, Nature Beings, have been talking with you since you were born. It is for that reason that the Higher Light Ones told us to watch over you. And you humans made that task quite difficult,” the tree seemed to smile when it said that to me.
“But, wait a minute, I never thought that a tree could “say” anything,” I whispered under my breath.
“There you go again,” said the tree, “thinking and acting like a human being when YOU are actually a Nature Being!”
“A Nature Being?” I asked the tree. Obviously, I was still asleep and this whole conversation was a dream.
“Yes, replied the tree, “You would need to think of this experience of talking with a tree to be a “dream.” In fact, your experiences since you “ran off into the woods,” seem like a dream to your awake self.
“But the reality is that you thought of this experience as a “dream,” so that you could allow yourself to “have a dream” of doing something that you can very easily do while you are awake.”
“Dear Awakening One, we are the collective of your Nature Friends who resonate within the fifth dimensional frequency band of this time and space! Therefore, rather than listening to us with your ears, listen to us with your Heart and Mind.
You are no longer on what you call ‘the physical plane.’ In fact, you have begun your “inter-dimensional journey back to SELF.”
Then, suddenly, I was fully awake to my physical world. However, I did see that I had slept in-between the warm rock and the nurturing tree, for which I was quite grateful. Also, while I was speaking with the Tree, I had a feeling on the top of my head, as if someone was tickling it with a feather.
I pushed away the unseen feather again and again, until I realized that the feeling was coming, not from the top of my head, but from just inside my skull. For a moment I was afraid. Everything was happening too fast, and there were too many new thoughts, feelings and experiences to keep track of.
Also, I was changing. This change seemed to begin when I felt a sensation, as if my heart and my mind were merging into a oneness that I had never experienced before. “What is wrong with me?” I cried up into the sky.
Then, I woke up and found myself in my cabin. “Did I dream all of these experiences?” I asked my unseen mentor. However, my mentor was silent. My heart was beating calmly, and my mind was telling me that I was hungry.
“No, No!” I cried. Was that whole experience real, or was it just a dream?”
“Is there a difference?” I heard from deep within and high above.
