This Tree Was Watching Me

This may seem weird to you.

I was heating up my car before leaving to the office, and as always, I looked across to see the trees, since it brings me to a place of serenity. At times, I get to watch a squirrel or two nibbling on food but something different caught my eye. The tree in front of me was looking right back at me.

Leaning closer to the car window I thought, “this tree has an eye”.

I’ve read in numerous sites/articles that trees communicate with each other due to a vast information superhighway they have underground. On BBC it was discovered plants talk to each other using an internet of fungus.

Have you stood in silence, hugged a tree, sensed the energy of the tree, and it “spoke” with you? 

All I know was that this tree was watching me.

  1. This post touched my heart! There was tree in my backyard …it was my ‘friend’ and it had the Eye – it always watched over me and we have had countless conversations 🙂 The tree is no longer there …it was heartbreaking to see it go.

  2. I was doing standing meditation (as I usually do), I opened my eyes and saw a tree staring at me. In that moment, I likened myself to being like a tree…and I was holding my arms out like branches. I could have gone outside and hugged that tree. And yes, I love that there’s a whole underground network of communication. They are wise!
    And you…you’re speaking my language. Hehe. Sending you hugs! It’s almost April 15. Hang in there! xo

    1. What a marvellous view! I love trees, especially those tall ancient ones. I think there’s a magic force among trees. Great you caught the moment and share with us, Bernice!

  3. The tree was most definitely watching (or guarding) you. There is a state park in Florida (Washington Oaks State Park), and it’s full of thick, gorgeous, century-old oak trees with magnificent shade cover dripping with Spanish moss. Some of the branches are so heavy and ancient they almost touch the ground. When I walk among those trees (the same in the Redwood National Forest), I can only imagine how accurate human history would be if trees could tell the story. What an honor to be recognized by this unique gem!
