For me, Peace Tree is the physical manifestation of Universal Consciousness. I'd say Universal Consciousness is a dimension that can be reached, attained, or discovered through meditation on a focused intention of love and gratitude.
You feel or are aware of the oneness between all of creation, all beings, all of nature, and our connection to one another. There is an impression of compassion for all creatures, from the organism to the human, all connected through Spirit and are one.
We may come together physically at a sacred place where energy lines cross and radiate from the Earth. Each of the Sacred Trees has a crystal core and rings with a lifeforce that "calls us by our names", it feels so familiar and clear. When we combine our focused intentions of love & gratitude in the energy of creativity and light, a Great Shift will cast a divine wave of change over all of creation in several dimensions.
In one beautiful day, everyone will awaken from their sleeping and know in their spirit what is true and good and fair for everyone, as one family.
Peace Tree can be a sacred place to meet in the beautiful forest or it can be a place you hold in your heart when you are lost in darkness. Peace Tree is always a safe place, a place of gratitude, and universal love where everyone is welcome in the circle of singing, dance, and celebration. Hope to see you there!
What is Peace Tree to you?
What does Peace Tree look and feel like in your imagination?
What solutions do you look forward to manifesting, after the Shift?
Since gratitude is the key to the Shift, what are you grateful for?
Recently, I was challenged to list 100 reason's to be grateful every day, for a week. The idea is to get into the habit of being grateful and looking for reasons to be grateful, every day. This is especially helpful when life is challenging and feels hopeless.
Since we attract what we focus on, we could say that the pursuit of gratitude will cause gratitude to seek you out... creating a cycle of more showing up to be "found". Have fun with that idea!

Last Summer I was inspired to create a *Medicine Wheel on the property. Meditating on the purpose of the wheel I began to clear or "weed" the wild space and to prepare it to create an herb garden.
"The difference between a weed and a flower is a judgment." kept coming to mind. A wise thought from Rumi, I believe. So, I stopped weeding and gathered samples for research on the internet. It turns out Spirit was trying to tell me something as each and every one of the plants, I was considering to remove from the garden (believing them to be weeds), had a healing and beneficial purpose.
Knotweed, Plantains, Dandelion, Mullen, Chickweed, Mallow, Cleaver Weed, Purslane were all growing abundantly next to Yarrow, Nettle, Burdock, and Hollyhock all under healthy Pomegranate, Black Walnut, and Loquat Trees. Nature had already planted a thriving Medicine Wheel Garden with properties to cure everything from inflammation to cancer.
I believe Spirit was telling me that there was already a healing garden growing there, a powerful one. When I looked up the properties of each plant, I was amazed and blessed to make the discovery. I practice Reiki and teach healthy cooking but I know very little about healing herbs. This gardening project turned out to be a crash course in medicinal plants. Spirit speaks to us in the "language" we are interested in hearing. My life interest is healing so naturally, it was a "language" I understood, quickly.
One thing leads to another when communication with Great Spirit starts. The garden project connected me with nature each day. One morning I had the pleasure of observing a spider web full of morning dew against a pink frosted sky. I just sat there drinking my tea as I observed the beauty of it.
I passed by the garden shed and saw a collection of wrought iron hoops that I found on a visit to the local dump. Immediately, I knew I wanted to make a series of dream catchers. I hadn't made a dream catcher since I was in elementary school so I explored the geometry of it and started with the materials I had in my art studio. I remember hearing the story of the dream catcher at a Summer gathering at the Lake, told by someone's grandmother.
The story developed or was given to me while I was spinning or weaving the first two dream catchers. Each day as I worked on the project part of the story would come to my mind and I would have to write it quickly in my journal. Then bits of the story and my observations in the garden started to weave together into a bigger picture and a grander story that needed to be told. Each week I would follow my interests (ie; Myth & Lore of a variety of cultures, Ancient Civilizations, Sacred Geometry, Quantum Physics, etc.) research the origins of each and incorporate each into the message I wanted to share. Universal Consciousness & Love! That is how this all started and now voila, I have self-published my first book.
Where is your story waiting for you to find it?
What are you hearing Spirit tell you on your journey?
What is the message you want to share with humanity?
Do you have special bits and pieces that mean something to you that you could develop into a story?
I found my story in an overgrown piece of property, in a spider's web and in the woods around my house. Perhaps you and a few friends could build a story, together. Working from everyone's imagination to capture the magic we often miss when we stand alone.
I'd like to encourage you to get a notebook and start writing ideas, all the bits, and pieces. Just journal what you like and what you're interested in. Take a walk outside, commune with nature and listen until it becomes an experience you feel grateful for. You can start anywhere, about a favorite pet, a place you went, an impression you have. Have fun!
I can start with Star Nation since he lives with us, presently. Star literally blew into our lives out of a torrential rainstorm.
We returned late from a potluck dinner party with friends and saw, what looked to be, two raccoons scurry under the deck. The next morning there was a big beautiful cat sitting on the deck in the sun as if waiting for us to wake up.
A week passed and the "Norwegian Forest Cat", kept returning to us. On the seventh day, I brought home 2 raw chicken legs and a can of sardines packed in water. We have been together ever since.
Its name was Star Nation from the beginning as there is a Star on its head and a constellation of stars down its neck. Now, the gender? humm...well, considering this cat is somewhat wild and had bouts of aggression, I was not willing to investigate gender any closer than a few feet away.
I was happy to report, with absolute certainty, Star was a female and she was such a pretty girl, it was obvious. Mike called her his Little Princess and she was always my Girl-Girl, Pretty Girl, and Lady Alaine.
A year into our relationship with this wild girl shocked everyone on a quick Summer day. I was having a sweet conversation with the pit bull, Bugs, Buggsy and I watched Star in slow motion, lunge onto Buggsy's face and start a rubble, without even a warning to the poor fella.
In one thoughtless motion, I fell onto the dog landing on my knee. It was enough pressure to knock the wind out of him, causing him to blow the cat out of his mouth.
Only then did I realize that in my slow-motion event, the dog had somehow managed to pull the cat off of his face and into his mouth. I slide off of the dog and onto the gravel, knee first, while both animals escaped near death in opposite directions.
There must have been some communication between them as they kept an eight-foot distance from that day onward. Poor dog.
Later that Summer I brought Star to the mobile vet at the local Grange to get spayed and her shots and a chip. Since she liked to take 3 and 4-day walkabouts I wanted her to have shots and not come home pregnant. I stopped her off in the morning and when I went to pick up my Little Honey Girl the vet informed me, "we didn't need to spay her because she's a neutered male." "WHAT?" I piped in shock.
Mike sat down when I delivered the news that our Little Girl was a boy. "He's always been I shapeshifter", I had to remind him. It was uncanny, I'd let him out on the deck and turn around to for a few seconds and when I'd look again, there would be a crow instead. One time, I opened the front door and Star walked out. When his tail cleared the door jam, I closed the door behind him. Forgetting to tell him something, I immediately opened the door and the cat was already gone. I had to walk outside to look for him just to see where he could have hidden so quickly. I didn't see him and I didn't hear any sound. When I turned to go back inside, there was a huge Red silk moth on the jam of the door. It climbed onto my finger and I carefully placed it into a nearby tree.
Much later in the day I called for Star and there he was perched in the tree. I just laughed and his nickname has been shapeshifter, ever since.
