Wonderful Siobhan, a passionate treesister and ocean lover from Ireland answered the question ‘how do trees embody the divine feminine’, these are her thoughts and her artwork, see if you resonate. How would you answer the question?
Discovering the work of Tree Sisters was like a gentle cooling breeze on a warm summer's day. I signed up immediately as a leaf to help support their vision: A world where women and nature are valued and respected as the norm.
This speaks deeply to the very core of my soul and sends shivers down my spine.
Even writing those words raises my inner eyebrows. Experimenting with integrity? Surely you are just in integrity or you are not? Part of me likes to make things black and white, but actually I think there are great swathes of grey where we simply do our best whilst battling with fears, limiting perceptions and old programs that are just so damn unhelpful. Perhaps more than that, we find ourselves unconsciously impacted by the strong current of collective consciousness that tells us what is acceptable and the specter of external judgment and rejection that whispers words like failure in our ears when we are daring to believe in something other.
The experiment is this: if we step away from patterns and choices that reflect fear or lack, and put our heart, soul, values and mission first so that everything we do is in alignment with our core purpose – will that energetic integrity call forth a response from the universe that catalyzes what we need to accomplish our work?
When Jane Brunette emailed me from Bali last February to ask if I would help her organize an Indiegogo Campaign to support an indigenous tribe in Eastern Borneo bring hundreds of villagers together to hold a 64-day long conflict resolution ceremony intended to protect their home rainforest from bulldozers, I did not have to think about it. I just followed my heart compass and said yes!
