“Listen: There’s a hell of a good universe next door…let’s go!” ~e. e. cummings

I have quite a connection with nature, and find it SO healing; in fact, recently, I’ve found that nature most often feels “more real” than the 3D world (what I now internally call “the old Earth”). Repeatedly, I’ve been guided to send people to commune with trees to help ease the gunk coming up in the healing/clearing process; I’ve had very powerful experiences in doing so myself… actually, MOUNTAINS and OCEANS and everything HUGE!

Yesterday morning, I felt quite the intense pull to get outside; I was being called. I typically take my dog with me on walks, but was guided to leave her behind. I didn’t even put on sneakers; my Nike flip-flips (with tread on the bottom) felt sufficient enough, because I didn’t even want to stop to tie my shoes!

It felt amazing to just get outside and connect/merge with the trees, the plants, flowers, animals, and nature… I was guided to take the path in the nearby neighborhood which crossed me through the elemental wooded area that I love so much but haven’t crossed through for MONTHS. Funny enough, as I was walking on the road through it, my attention was brought to an opening in the woods, which looks like a doorway in the thick brush on the edge. It was beckoning to me (shorts, tank top, flip flops and all), and it was simply outside my reality to pass it by. So I entered.

An aside: There’s a lot of interesting interaction I’ve had with faie beings in this particular wooded area over the past several years… including a tremendously powerful and yet kind presence named Lodis (as I’ve seen and heard the name in my head) who is what the faie consider the deity of the doorways between the worlds. Lodis’ presence has transcended this wooded area for awhile. I remember the first time I sensed Lodis, about two years ago; I felt such a huge presence as I was running through that day that I just HAD to come to a dead stop there, in the middle of the road with my dog, to close my eyes and “see” who it was who was so huge that they were hovering over the trees, at the same time encapsulating all of them. There it was; and though I didn’t have conscious remembrance of this entity in the moment, I knew the FEELING of it (I don’t say he or she because it was both), and automatically briefly bowed my head in respect and opened my heart even further in greeting. I received the same in return, heard the name, and understood in moments that it was overlooking the development of “the doorways” between dimensions/worlds within that woods.

I’ve been patiently awaiting those “doorways” being “complete”… and I’ve asked almost every time I’ve been through there over the past few years if they’re done yet!

Anyway, as is my habit – and since I haven’t been that way for months – I connected in automatically with the woods as I approached, and asked about the doorways. As I’d seen the physical doorway at the edge of the woods to enter (one that has appeared to me in the past, but not for at least a year), I heard, “Why, yes, they are…” and I thought, “Well, THIS might be an adventure!” LOL!

And so I entered.

I shrugged and simply thought, OK… guide me. On the ground, I sensed a clear path in (even though there are no walking paths in there). So I followed it. I looked around, being aware of the possibility of poison ivy/poison oak (being in shorts and flip flips and all)… and yet, the path I was guided to take was free and clear of such plants, and I knew I would be OK.

The path I’d followed stopped at this huge, aged pine tree. This was the tree for me to connect through, I understood. And so I did.

Immediately, the colors brightened and sharpened tremendously, and I saw everything around me SO CLEARLY… in a completely different fashion, with my eyes closed. And yet… what I saw with my eyes closed felt far more real than with my eyes open!

I realized that I could FEEL the colors… which startled me a little. I was wondering upon that (which, of course, comes from the ego)… what does it MEAN to feel the colors in what I’m seeing?

I’ve had some really different perceptions of the world lately, and the little ego voice in my mind was totally baffled. So I thought, “OK… well… if I’m REALLY perceiving this… show me some way in the 3D (“old Earth”) reality…”

Until that point, I hadn’t even realized I was standing in complete stillness; complete silence. The only reason I realized this is because almost instantaneously from when I had that thought, something came crashing through the woods, seemingly out of nowhere. It was CLOSE, and moving fast. Staying in my melded state, I calmly opened my eyes, to see three deer – two young stags and a doe – chasing each other. Two continued the chase, but one stag stopped dead, no more than 20 feet from me, looked right in my eyes, and connected with me. I lost time and space, and felt a greeting from the heart… and then like I could hear some thoughts coming through from another level of consciousness; something along the lines of “Yes, it is known you are here.” That connection lasted for about 5 seconds; I closed my eyes to “see” the stag in my mind, saw him in more of a much different form, and he then bounded away to continue the play with his mates.

I continued the expansion of my merging (by way of Trinity Energy Progression) and gave gratitude for this place, for this energetic sharing… and just observed the feeling of the colors around me… the feeling of everything around me.

When I felt that was done, I opened my eyes. There was a tree I’d found on one of my few other jaunts into these woods, and I hadn’t been able to spot on my way in… it’s one of those trees that had fallen across the small creek running through the woods when it was younger and had re-rooted and grown up toward the sky, so the trunk part from when it had fallen runs on its side along the Earth, and then it makes a sharp turn upward. It’s a great place to sit in the thick of this beauty and meditate! As soon as I refocused my attention on finding it, I realized it was only about 50 feet from where I was already standing. That was my next stop! I made my way over and found a seat with gratitude on this lovely being.

I sat there for a short while with my eyes open, visually exploring what was around me; I realized that, though in the thick of the woods, I could see through to the road, probably no more than several hundred feet away. As I was considering this (that I was ultimately still on the outskirts of this wooded area), I noticed a man walking by with his dog on that road, while I sat there, completely unnoticed in the woods. I realized that not only did I FEEL like I was in a completely different world, even being so relatively close, but that I actually was in a different world.

After a few minutes, I again closed my eyes, expanded my consciousness in there even more, and reveled in the peace and beauty, while I was guided to do some pending healing work.

It wasn’t too long until my attention was pulled to the energy of some powerful entity in the woods with whom I was unfamiliar. I could suddenly feel its presence as plain as day… there was no missing it; as I was merged in with the energy of the woods and all within, it was just as much a part of me as a separate presence. As I honed in on the identity of this presence, I was taken aback… what I saw, in my mind’s eye, was the equivalent of a magnificent Sasquatch-sized being covered in leaves, with this vibrant consciousness of all that surrounded me. The Green Man! This was a first for me… I’d known OF the Green Man mythology, but had never encountered or really known much about him!

He was there to greet me; to welcome me into the doorway. He showed me a number of things of which I presently only have vague recollection … including paths ahead, changes ahead, for me and the world. But, most of all… he let me know that I am welcome, that I am connected to that doorway, and that when I am ready to actually walk through it, vs. just sit “at the edge“… it is there, he/they is/are there, ready and waiting.

We communicated telepathically for some period of time outside of 3D Earth’s time and space… and then I realized it felt like I should get back. I opened my heart in gratitude, thanked him, thanked all around me… and opened my eyes. I breathed in the beautiful, sweet smell of nature, stood up, and found a path back to the physical doorway that had been open to me in the 3D, physical world. The Green Man stayed with me, stayed connected to me as I departed; I felt him watching me from his version of the woods, in a pleasant parting wish… and I felt a wisp of his presence follow me all the way back home, as if he were noting that path.

As I walked off, I heard him send me the thought, “Until next time… soon…”

Can’t wait!

  One Response to “Knowing the NEW Door is Always Open…”

  1. He’s everywhere! My experience with nature spirits is that they are very open to and welcome human engagement. They often are surprised by it, because we are such short-duration creatures. I hold public sabbat rituals at Pullen park, and it’s amazing what those old oaks have to say! But I recall the first time I held ritual space there and asked them if it was OK, they were flippant about it, along the lines of, “Sure, but we’ll be surprised to see you again.” It’s been an amazing journey to sustain that relationship. Everywhere you take the time to look, there it will be!
