All the Shamanic cultures around the globe have a tradition of communicating with tree spirits. The word, Deva, meaning supernatural entity, derives from ancient India. In Europe tree spirits are often to referred to as Dryads.
“A dryad is a tree nymph, or female tree spirit, in Greek mythology. In Greek drys signifies “oak.” Thus, dryads are specifically the nymphs of oak trees, though the term has come to be used for all tree nymphs in general.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dryad)
Humans have a special relationship with trees, simply by the fact that trees produce the oxygen we breathe in and we exhale carbon dioxide which trees love.
So can I prove that tree spirits really exist? Nope. But you can do some really interesting thought experiments, by acting as if you can communicate with these Deva’s, and get useful results.
Isn’t everything a projection of the mind (consciousness) anyway?
If you would like insight into a problem or inspiration for a new project, I certainly recommend going for a walk in the woods, and imagine connecting with these wise beings or if you prefer; facets of the imagination.
One way you can achieve this:
