Those of us who have been blessed to bathe in the essence of the abundant, beautiful, Hemlock trees, can sense their power. Even if we are not consciously aware of it, there’s something amazing about a hemlock forest that makes you want to return again and again. They renew and refresh us, ground and connect us. The presence of the Hemlock trees is a gift with which the earth has been graced. It is simply irreplacable.
Intention: To send healing and protection to the beautiful Hemlock population
Date: Saturday, August 12th
Background: The Hemlock Wooly Adelgid (HWA) is an invasive species that has been known to cause widespread Hemlock mortality in areas it has inhabited. First found near Richmond in the 1950s, it had avoided the Adirondack Park until this July. It has already effected much of the east coast of the US including the Catskills and Hudson Valley. Loss of these trees could have a devastating effect on the ecosystem. The Hemlocks provide protection for both local and migrating species of animals, prevent soil erosion, and contribute to water quality.
Please help with this intention in whatever method you are comfortable including reiki, prayer, meditation, journeys.
