Qualities of Tree Spirit Healing


Qualities of Tree Spirit Healing

By Annie Day

For many centuries trees have been known to have profound and simple healing properties for many ailments and for emotional/psychological balancing. We all experience that deepening of the breath and the slowing down of all movement whilst in the presence of these giants.

Just seeing woods or forests can have an immediate relaxing and balancing effect on us in a gentle but powerful way. The greenness of our surroundings when in such situations works on us in a holistic and comprehensive way.

Trees are beautiful sentient beings, without their presence we would be unable to breathe. They are necessary for us to survive and for time immemorial there have always been strong links between trees and ourselves.

As the Green man is an interweaving of human features with leaves and tendrils, this is also representative of the interdependence of human kind with the tree and plant kingdom.

Trees have their roots deep within the earth and their branches touching the heavens. The trees forms are visual expressions of living in harmony and balance in their own environment. They take their nourishment from both the sun and the earth and they are the protectors and regulators of their surroundings and also offer sustenance and sanctuary to many other life forms.

Benefits of Tree Spirit Healing
• Grounding and centring providing you with a deep connection to the Earth
• Assists in manifesting our goals and holding on to our visions and dreams
• A deeply relaxing experience
• Opens us up to different levels of consciousness and gives us a new understanding of our place in the universe


Remember to always ask permission especially for any witnesses that are taken and to thank the tree. Gaze at the tree allowing your eyes to go slightly out of focus

Ask any questions or for guidance whilst looking at the tree

Allow the tree to communicate with you – it may not be the answer you wanted, but it is always useful information.

Hugging trees is a wonderful way to communicate with these beautiful sentient beings and to give / receive healing from the tree.

Stand in front of the tree and gaze at it, visualising actually touching/ talking to the tree. Suitable for when you need to be discreet!

Listen to the trees. Simply allow yourself the opportunity to hear the messages from them. Be still and “act” like a tree.


When in the presence of the Tree spirit – acknowledge the presence and be attentive to all your senses.

Stand your ground as a legitimate Earth creature, without losing sense of humility in equality

Ask if there is any specific message to receive. Relax and allow yourself to receive. Ask if there is any specific action to be performed.

If working with a tree you feel a significant resonance, ask its name. On returning home, look up the qualities of that species of tree.

Use a wooden flute to serenade the Tree spirit and listen for the song it sings to you. Fill a wooden bowl with water and leave it for a few moments to pick up the energy of that tree and then drink from it.

Breathe in the essential oil of the particular tree you are working with or essence. Taste the essence of the tree you’re working with.

Practice Sonic driving, the repetitive monotonous beat of a drum or rattle has been found to help us to connect to the energies of trees, plants, and flowers.

Dancing in a circle, stamping the feet can also help to focus our attention on our expanded consciousness. Swaying like a tree can also produce an effective way of communicating.

In order to capture the qualities of tree spirit healing, I use a combination of The Tree Spirit Oracle, Tree Magick & Tree Angel cards, Greenman Essences, Tree Spirit Symbols, Wild woods as well as my own Tree essences from local sources.

This provides a truly unique and highly personal treatment in which you can ask to target specific issues: physical, emotional, psychological & spiritual or a combination of any of these aspects, as well as asking for specific guidance from your session with the trees in this wonderful healing modality.
