The Tree Beckoned & I Followed


IMG_20170121_142644096.jpgYesterday the snow called and we headed off on a snow shoeing adventure in the deep, fresh powder along Taylor Creek in South Lake Tahoe.

No footprints had yet to touch this winter wonderland and the only signs of life were the trees bowing to the presence of the snow, the creek rolling swiftly by and spiraling over rock beings that welcomed the water’s caress, crystals sparkling in the white blankets all around, and a wood pecker who was intuiting where to create a portal in the tree he had chosen.

This stillness was loud and the solitude was welcoming.

Incredible surrealism enveloped this enchanted realm, as we made our own path through the magickal forest and over an arm of the creek, traversing a tree limb packed with snow that provided a bridge to the “other side”.

It was there, off path a bit, that a lone giant caught my eye. I veered off the path I’d been following behind Dave, as it beckoned me closer, which meant making my way through thigh high snow.

After getting about half way, I noticed Dave was far ahead and knew I should catch up, so I told the tree I would be back.

We stopped where the wood pecker showed up at the foot of a tree, feeling that was the place to turn around and so we made our way back and I told Dave we needed to return to the magick tree I’d found, as I promised.

This time I went the whole way, hearing the tree call me to step inside. Once reaching the tree I discovered there was a deep hole to step down into, as the snow had piled up outside of it. So in I stepped without hesitation, knowing this is what it had desired.

Dave captured the journey within this portal, along with many little orbs that filled the inside of the tree, with one larger one showing up.

Some almost look like snow, they are so white. And yet it was not snowing and I was inside the dark shelter of this giant.

If you peer closely you can see all of these tiny orbs moving around inside from frame to frame, from top to bottom of the portal, all around me, some on me, and then the much larger one above me.

This is why the tree beckoned, for my Faery friends and the Nature Spirits awaited.

Magick abound.

There are whispers of magick everywhere, if you listen.
