Trees & the Underground Web
A couple of years ago, my Andalusian mare Zorra had developed gloppy eye mucus and a runny nose after her 3,000 mile trailer ride from New Jersey, USA to Langley, BC, Canada. Yes I got her the biggest box stall on an 18-wheeler air ride truck, with stop-overs along the way. But still, a long, confined trip like that would have even made me sick! So I wasn’t surprised that she was. I had her on a blend of Chinese immune sup
port herbs that her former owner had sent along with her (she was given them throughout the trip too) and a few other supplements, but nothing was helping.
So I arrived at the barn one morning and exclaimed, “Oh my gosh, Zo, you’re still sick! Okay, let me give you some healing…” By that I meant pranic (energy) healing. At which point Zorra said, “Have you looked at yourself?” I paused to notice I was still coughing (after weeks of treatment – it turned out to be a food intolerance, but that’s another story), and my own energy was skank-a-mank; kind of frantic and discombobulated. I said, “Good point. Let me go sort myself out first.”
I was drawn to a corner of the pasture that faced this magnificent, towering, 150-year-old Douglas Fir tree.
I closed my eyes, slowed and deepened my breathing. And then this tree elder began to direct my meditation:
Bring the white light in through the top of your head
Flow it down your body
Now open your heart chakra; front AND back
Flow the energy out the soles of your feet into Mother Earth
Keep going down, down, until you reach the tree root network and plug in
As I ‘plugged in’ to the tree roots under the earth, I saw it was a network, like a web, that extended for miles and miles in every direction. The moment I made contact and hooked myself up to this network, I felt an energy vortex swirl up to surround me. And I kid you not, the actual wind began to swirl around me. With great delight (and more than a little awe) I breathed into this experience, Tree reminded me, “Front and back of your heart”. I then saw this network like a halogen-blue glowing network/web that actually spanned the entire globe!
Thinking about it later, I wondered if there was some way the tree roots on land also connected with sea plant roots under the ocean floor. Because I had a real sense that this was not just an energetic network, but an actual physical web of connection.
Which brings us to a video about trees and the network their roots tap into. Prepare to be amazed at the web of life, support, and communication scientists have discovered under the earth…

As we are moving house in the summer, I’ll also be looking to lease land closer to our new house. Discussing this with Montaro (my Fjord/Belgian) I said, “I might not be able to find a piece of land as big as this… and are you sure you wouldn’t rather go to the interior of BC (where I could get them 100 acres, but would only see them once a month or so)?” He
looked sideways at me and said, “We want to stay with you. But just make sure there’s trees.”
