The Grounding Effect of Trees for Wellbeing
Giving voice to the fact that trees nuture our wellbeing, this is the reason I created the painting collection: ‘The Sacred Lives of Trees’
A walk in the forest not only stretches our muscles or gives us an excuse to be in fresh air, we may also get a wonderful sense of connection to the earth which trees are strongly rooted to. Many people refer to this as the grounding effect of trees.
You might need to ground yourself if you have been affected by the following:
- experience of a crisis/shock/trauma
- when your immune system has been badly affected by illness
- experiencing a period of low energy or dizzy spells
- you are feeling depressed, grieving or broken-hearted
This is list is based on personal experience, feel free to add other reasons for grounding below in the comments sectoin.
There are lots of circumstances in life that can leave us feeling disconnected from ourselves but trees provide us with a way of restoring that connection. Connecting with Nature helps to restore connection with self.
Trees are an important contributor to our well-being, this factor is much deeper than some may realise.
More people are recognising the grounding effects of trees as a very real benefit for well-being. Tree analogies are used in meditation for this very reason. We can imagine ourselves having roots just like trees, anchoring ourselves strongly to the earth. By influencing our thoughts and feelings in this way, we can change our body’s chemistry over time and raise our energy to allow sensations of being anchored and centred. By developing this practice we can become more clear in our thinking and more able to deal with the surprise ‘hits’ life throws in our path.

The response I got from launching ‘The Sacred Lives of Trees’ tour was tremendous. My on-line community sensed the importance of my quiet message about the trees, through my use of vivid colours and the intimate settings of trees.
From the comments I received during my art exhibition it was clear that the message resonated with many people. In my notebook and on-line they expressed their gratitude for trees and the comfort that they had received as a result of their presence.
I am still adding to this collection and all pieces are available through my on-line shop and gallery.
